    coconut mana? Primal?

    Primal Fuel
    I have fallen in love with coconut....coconut oil, c. mana, c. amino acids, c. nectar...heck even coconut flakes and milk too. Are they all primal? I am curious about the nectar and the mana. I have created a treat that is a blend of coconut oil and mana with some cocoa powder and it is delicious....but is it primal?

    thanks

    The only one I would be leery of is the coconut nectar, as it's basically sugar, right? I mean a teaspoon in your coffee or something is ok, but if you're pouring it on everything that would be cause for concern.

    All the other stuff is totally Primal approved as far as I know.

    Yep, it's a primal Godsend......second only (in my humble opinion) to coconut BUTTER, which is awfully similar - heck, depending on the brands, the two can be identical.

    My big jar of Artisana coconut butter is the one coconut product that I do tend to keep on the top shelf so that I'm not grabbing it TOO often. It's pretty tough to stop at a spoonful or two sometimes. At least I don't have to keep it out of sight completely like the almond butter, macadamia nut butter, pecan butter, walnut butter, etc.....
