Coconut pancakes and me may not be a good thing. Made them this morning and quickly felt like I had eaten a bunch of movie house popcorn on an empty stomach -- which is not good. I'm very sensitive to corn and used to always get a carb/insulin spike whenever I went to the movies (also a craving for red meat -- so my body wasn't totally screwed up!)
So I'm still feeling a bit woozy -- even tho I've had some tuna to help with the spike. My stomach is now a bit rumbly -- a phenom I've had when I've eaten a couple of teaspoons of coconut oil straight. So some of the problem could be the (lots) of coconut oil I cooked the pancakes in, plus the coconut flour. I have a similar reaction, tho not as strong, to almond flour bread/crackers.
I know I'll recover with dinner -- we are having duck and I'm making a basalmic blackberry sauce (a variation on the Crispy Roasted Duck recipe here on MDA.) Meanwhile, I may have to have another high protein snack.
I'm writing all this down, because I need to keep track of any negative reactions I have when I'm eating. That is a good thing for anyone to do, especially when embarking on a new eating style.
Now for an actual whine -- my Costco stopped stocking Kerry Gold Butter! I'm guessing it's for the holidays to make room for other stuff, but still, no good butter for quite awhile. I did find pastured butter at Whole Foods, so I'll be comparing and report on that when I get a chance.
Meanwhile, I'm off to look for the leftover beef in the fridge.
