MaryD, Yes, Natto is a great source of vitamin K which is NOT to be taken with coumadin 'cuz it interfers with the un-clotting action. How long do you have to be on that stuff? Don't know about the green tea and cranberries both of which are known to be very good for us. Drug interactions are a REAL problem, I feel for you. I hope I can go on a lot more years without having to take any...knock on wood...no, praying!
Good health and great success to you,
-annie

Hospitals are terrific for traumatic care; for acute care. They do a really, really good job in saving lives when it’s a sudden bleeding emergency. But in terms of chronic care, they’re terrible; (that is) in terms of the illnesses that most people have, endure, that cost the most money, that last the longest and ultimately die from. -Dr. Andrew Saul

Someone mentioned natto ("nasty natto"). I live in Japan, but I am on coumadin for my heart. Natto, green tea, and cranberries were on the none at all list.

Yes, I have seen the So Delicious coconut milk and I see that it has a few extra ingredients that are unnecessary including carrageenan. Azure even carries it too but I really like the Native Forest Brand. I use it a lot in cooking. It does have guar gum but that is all--not too bad. And it does taste like coconut. When blended into smoothies with fruits and protein powder you can't even taste it--it just works very good.

BEV the coconut milk I am used to seeing is called SO DELICIOUS made by Turtle Mountain. www.turtlemountain.com I like the creamer, but the milk tastes a little too much like coconut for me...I don't really like coconut unless I am eating a pice of fresh coconut.

Annie thanks for that link!! I think I will try making my own because also don't like sweet anymore, especially in my coffee, which is why I don't like the rice milk I can have that has 12 grams of sugar in it! I weaned myself from the sweet taste before I had to go dairy free. I do like the soy milk I have been drinking, but it really isn't worth the risks...and I am thinking already that I have a thyroid issue so I REALLY don't want to risk that! Thanks again!

You might have to order it on-line.
Native forest makes one that doesn't have carrageenan in it. You can buy it through Azure Standard co-op. You might check with their website to see if their regular delivery route is near you--I doubt it but they are growing all the time. Those of us who live near a delivery route don't have to pay any shipping if we combine our orders to be dropped off at one spot.
Here's their website page with the product. It is $2.05 for 1 can and $21.55 for a case of 12. It is the brand I use and I absolutely love it.

Or there's VitaCost.com:

c-
Coconut-Milk

or
www.vitacost.com/Thai-Kitchen-Coconu
t-
Milk-12-fl-oz-Each-Pack-of-12

VitaCost also sells a 5.5 oz can as well and by the case too.

Hope this helps. I think you might find coconut water on those websites as well.

I don't know why this message keeps making links of my text. I've been sitting here trying to fix it but it still keeps happening. Go figure!!

okay, coconut milk and water.....now, where would I find these? Remember, I live in the midwest --- we don't have wonderful local markets like those of you in other parts of the country. Even the closest Trader Joe's or Whole Foods is 2 hours away. Any specific brands?

Oh boy, that's too bad. I have seen some non-dairy milks that don't have that ingredient but I can't remember the brand. Can you make your own? It's really pretty easy actually.

I have been drinking Westsoy Organic soy milk for a few weeks now because I was having GI issues that I thought might be caused by carrageenan in my almond milk and coconut creamer. Unfortunately everything has carrageenan but that and one type of rice milk I have found and don't like. I am not sure what to do next...

Oh yes, and coconut water, especially fermented if you want a boost to your digestion as well as nutrients.

Coconut milk tastes great. For weight loss I'm not sure I would drink it all the time; I love to cook and bake with it though.
I also love coconut water. Tastes great and REALLY low in calories.

Laura is right; there are other choices of non-dairy milks. And, this is just my opinion, since the jury is out, but still kinda grumpy about the health benefits of soy, I would leave it alone and go for another milk. There's almond, hazelnut, cashew, oat, rice and yes, you can make these things at home. If you choose to purchase ready-made stuff stick to organic if you can.

Here's an article about genetically modified soy. Remember, any soy that is not labeled will be genetically modified.

I used a soy based supplement to help reduce my hot flashes and it absolutely worked. But, after reading more stuff on the soy/phyto-estrogen/hormone issues I felt it best to bite the menopause bullet and just press through without taking any more. I made it through--uncomfortable? yes indeed. But hardly have hot flashes anymore. Too much coffee can bring them on.

Also, glad someone mentioned "un-fermented soy" because fermentation is the good side of the soy eating picture. Fermented soy is very good for us. You can get it in tempeh, miso, traditionally fermented soy sauce using koji. In Japan they eat something called Natto which is also a fermented soy product. You can get it here in the west in specialty stores.

Unless the packaging states specifically non GMO... I've been told that over 90% of the soy crop produced in the US IS GMO!

It can mess (or help!) with your hormones. As most things, in my humble opinion, keep use in balance. (no extremes!)

It IS listed as ingredient in numerous places in Tosca Reno's cookbook: The Eat-Clean Diet Cookbook. Don't know if that "confirms" it is "clean"?? She also lists skim milk in recipes as another option.

Here's another article about soy milk. For years I ate a lot of unfermented soy and drank the milk. Now, I won't touch the stuff.

They do a little bit of covering both sides but definitely give you a warning list.

Thanks, Laura, for that info. I have heard some very contradictory reports on soy over the years. This article makes me glad that almond milk is accessible.

I wouldn't use soy uinless it's organic (could be GMO). Also, I have heard of problems about using unfermented soy.
