Before I became pregnant, I stayed away from coconut. I liked it, but it didn't like me. Oddly, it didn't bother me at all during my pregnancy. I took full advantage of that by enjoying coconut often ... but not too often.
I had hoped my coconut intolerance wouldn't return, but alas -- I'm afraid it has. I didn't really notice until a couple of days ago when I started feeling not quite right. I have to assume it is the coconut because I've been consuming a lot of it in various forms since the detox started. I could be totally wrong, of course, but just to be sure as of today I completely cut coconut out of diet (again). For the time being there will be no coconut oil, no coconut butter and no coconut flakes. Boo. It kinda limits my choices and means I can't partake in cinnamon coconut butter truffles), but that's OK -- I am a firm believer in staying away from food that makes you feel bad. No matter how tasty.
