Dear Gwen, Do you always use Olive Oil or is there anything else that can be used? I also use Grapeseed oil sometimes but I don't really use lots of oil.I use avocado a lot in salad dressing with lemon or lime, honey and sometimes sprinkles of seaweed. I get most of my fat from nuts, avocados and seeds. I know we need fat but I don't know the daily amount.

Also, what is your coconut milk of choice? I was buying Whole Foods brand--organic but just opened a full milk and even tho I shook it, it had a dark(black) liquid coming out of one side of can. Opened a Light WF brand and same thing happened. Has this ever happened to you? I threw it away because I wasn't sure if it was ok to eat. Do you know what that was? I called WF and John didn't know even tho he tried and called back, couldn't find phone on Whole Foods site. Their cans have an inside white liner except for 1/4-1/3 inch not lined. Hmmmmm? Some cans are no good, am finding out. Looking forward to your answer to these 2 questions. Thanks, Carole
