If you're camping, you can use a sturdy camping knife to open it. After opening the eyes and draining the milk (you can open them with the tip of your knife and a small twig), just place the blade against the middle of the coconut and hit the blade with a heavy stick. A little bit of the coconut shell will come off, exposing the darker part of the shell. Rotate the coconut and keep hitting until you have a dark circle around it, then choose one spot on the circle and hit your knife into it repeatedly. The coconut will split in half perfectly. It's a bit more time-intensive but you get a really cool coconut bowl after you eat the meat!

after opening the coconut ,to seperate shell from meat ---heat that broken part on low heat ;shell part directly touching heat : for arond 5 minutes. leave it to cool. after 5 minutes you will find meat and shell seperate very easily.however big the broken part of a coconut it is.

I think the eggs / dairy confusion is because the eggs are usually in the dairy section or "eggs and dairy section" at the store! Thanks all who helped with locating dairy-free chocolate chips DARK - I like using the 60+ % cacao - hopefully I'll find that at Whole Foods!

Eggs are not dairy

Work - From - Home - HQ also lets you to post articles where you can earn around $1 per article. Those considering a home-based business will also need to be disciplined in work habits and schedules. In doing so, it is good to make an online portfolio for you to show your samples. For instance, if you are creating DIY videos, a local lumber yard may be interested in sponsoring you for the increase in sales they hope to receive.

I want to sincerely thank you so much for this post! I am currently working on my own health and wellness blog, but keep getting stuck on food. I want to enjoy the food that I eat, but a lot of the recipes I've found are bland and leave me craving for the junk food that I'm used to. I think if I can branch out with my food choices and be patient to find ones that I enjoy that the whole process will get much easier.
Jill K. -Oct 04, 2013, 11:42AM
I recently found out I have a tomato allergy. I didn't always have it, and tomato sauce used to be my FAVORITE food in the ENTIRE world! *sobs* It's a pretty uncommon allergy, and I dread Mexican restaurants for this reason. Luckily it is not life-threatening and it is more like an intolerance, so I don't have to worry about cross contamination, but tomatoes give me digestive problems. :-( I have been trying to find different ways to eat pasta as I am also intolerant to dairy. I'm getting tired of pesto. I find many types of ravioli are delicious simply drizzled with olive oil. But as for plain pasta, olive oil isn't enough. I found a butternut squash jar sauce and got really excited, but it was BLENDED WITH TOMATOES. I am still hoping my tomato allergy will disappear one day. My mom was allergic to shrimp in her 20's but is not allergic anymore.
