    This morning I had coffee with heavy cream, and two hardboiled eggs. For lunch I had one cup of the chocolate chili from Well Fed on top of baby spinach, and added one tbsp. of coconut oil to it. I might have a snack of blackberries with heavy cream a little later if I get hungry. Tonight I'll have meat and veg sautéed in coconut oil most likely. My meat servings are usually about 4 oz or so.

    It can also be addicting in that your digestive system develops a dependence on having it there to be able to function. Not good.

    Interesting. But isn't there some actual meat derived protein in it too, not just the gelatin? I guess this would vary by the batch depending on the meatiness of the bones involved.

    Please do not put all your faith in ketostix. They are often not very accurate. They measure the ketones being excreted in your urine but, if you have become well adapted to using ketones as you body fuel, you will be burning them up, not excreting them. The only accurate measure is a blood test meter like the ones diabetic people use. If you are under 25 a day though, I don't think you need to be sticking your fingers.

    The advantage of MCTs are that they burn off quicker instead of being stored as fat. CO is awesome stuff. I use coconut cream in my Teeccino.

    There might be other soluble protein fractions as well. I'm not a researcher, but a cook. Soup that sets up like jello will have more body when hot. Soup with 1 ounce gelatin per 2 cups of broth with have a very thick, rich texture. I'm not sure how anyone without a lab could determine what other proteins are in a soup.

    I have a pot going right now that is the consistency of warm honey. Smells heavenly. When I put mine in the fridge, it comes out like knox blox, you can slice it and pick it up.

    Back in the old days, when someone was making a long journey, the cook would make portable soup for them. It was highly gelatinous. Cut into pieces, it was dried at room temperature until hard. The traveler could dissolve chunks in hot water for sustenance.

    Sounds good for modern day road trips too.

    I wonder if coconut cream would gel. That way you could pop a knox blox chunk into a hot beverage and get both the MCTs and the gelatin. Must try that.

    I absolutely LOVE coconut milk with berries, but have to eat very, very sparingly. So good though.
