Coconut oil in your coffee is great. I don't really know anything about MCT oil. The butter in the coffee (for those who eat dairy) is just fine too. Of course, I wouldn't recommend having this in place of breakfast like he mentions in this post. Protein is important to start the day. But the fat burning benefits of this coffee could be great. Of course, keep it in an S setting.
Whey protein will have little to no casein. Milk is comprised of part whey and part casein protein. In the process of cheese making, you can see the casein (curds) separate from the whey. So whey is actually separated from the casein in milk, making it a casein free product (at least virtually - I don't know if any little particles trickle in that could possibly cause an issue for someone with severe issues).
I have a bad habit of drinking coffee all morning instead of breakfast. I've tried to either skip the coffee altogether or make this Bulletproof coffee & add protein powder. It's really yummy w/ protein powder.

could this be drank on the side of a FP snack? I think it would be great with a little choco pudding or chia tapioca in the afternoon
Yes, you could have this with a FP snack or an S snack. The drink is S, so just remember to keep it 3 hrs away from an E meal. It does sound great with a chocolate pudding or something in the afternoon! =)
steffanie3: For breads you want to stick with the E guidelines of whole grain sourdoughed or sprouted or whole grain rye.

asensenig: Does this include Ezekiel Bread? I have a THM recipe that calls for 7 cups wheat kernels. It does not mention that it needs to be sprouted or rye.

steffanie3: Ezekiel is sprouted. You could post your recipe up in a post so we could see it

asensenig: Following is the recipe I used for Ezekiel Bread. 7 cups Wheat Kernels; 1 cup Ezekiel Mix; 1000 mg Vitamin C Tablet; 5 cups warm water; 1/2 cup Honey; 1/2 cup butter, slightly softened); 2 T salt; 3 T Saf Yeast; 1/2 cup Vital Wheat Gluten. Ezekiel mix next

asensenig: Ezekiel Mix: 12 cups Barley; 12 cups Rye or Spelt; 4 cups dry lentils; 4 cups millet; 4 cups dry pinto beans; 3 cups dry soy beans. Another question. Can rye berries be used without sprouting?

steffanie3: I was thinking you meant the store bought Ezekiel which is sprouted. This recipe would not be on plan with the honey.

asensenig: ok. if you substituted another sweetner for the honey, would it be ok?

aecmama: hello! just started the plan and wondering about the Chobani 100 yogurt that is sweetened with stevia and also monkfruit extract (both of which I have already in the house!) Anyone know anything? I've spent awhile searching. Are either of these on plan?
Apr 16, 2014 11:56:59 GMT -5
steffanie3: Can you list the ingredients aecmama?
Apr 16, 2014 13:55:11 GMT -5
steffanie3: Cane juice is sugar and is not on plan, sorry.
Apr 16, 2014 16:01:42 GMT -5
steffanie3: Are the grains and beans sprouted asensening?
Apr 16, 2014 16:04:42 GMT -5
aecmama: any thoughts about monkfruit extract as a sweetener?
Apr 16, 2014 16:05:09 GMT -5
steffanie3: "At this time, there is not an official recommendation to use monk fruit, but the early research on monk fruit extract is encouraging." The THM ladies are still researching it. If it were me I would use up what you have then get a stevia extract
