Also increased the gelatin to 4 tablespoons for a liter of coconut milk, 3/4 of a 500 gram chunk of butter, and 1 cup of coconut oil. Still 24 egg yolks. Even though I didn't have a curdle, I added the two tablespoons of water and used the immersion blender. The texture was like silk and very light! Amazing stuff.
Maybe i am wrong, but i thought you once said that you couldn't tolerate coconut, as it is a seed. Did you have to readapt to it?
I have a serious tree nut allergy. (I carry an epipen for walnuts and bee stings.) When I first began the diet, I couldn't eat coconut at all. The key to eventually using coconut oil, then coconut cream/milk was healing the digestive system. It took me a little over a year and a half to eliminate foods, and heal my gut to the point I could re-test coconuts.
There are points in transitioning to the diet in which your body will become sensitive to certain things. At one point, I couldn't eat eggs without joint pain. Now I can eat scrambled eggs when I want some. I was more cautious with the coconuts, due to the tree nut allergy. I can report now that I eat coconut oil/cream every day, without reaction. It's important to note that not everyone will be able to reach that point, its very individual.
In my case, I still can't eat other tree nuts without risking a serious allergic reaction. Coconuts remain the only one I can eat, and even with this particular food, I don't consume the raw meat at all...just the cream/oils.
It may be the same for Laura, or not.
