Diane correctly points out that coconut is high in fat... When I stated
that the pudding was free from "added fat" I meant it had no refined fat
added... I have probably stepped outside the guidelines for this list and I
apologise if I have "misled" anyone by implying that the dessert is free
from fat - it isn't...
I have a question for the list, however. If it is out of place, please
feel free to let me know (one person only please!)...
I don't actually believe in "fatfree" eating - I consume a fairly large
amount of cashews, almonds, avocado's and other foods that may be
considered high in fat, however I always consume them in their raw and
natural state. I have been surprised at the number of recipes and other
items that call for things like "fatfree" cheese... If the aim of eating
fatfree is to lose weight then maybe I can understand this, however from a
health point of view, the processing involved in such products surely makes
them a menace to health... In which case if you are eating fatfree for
health reasons then this would seem counter-intuitive... I changed my diet
about 18 months ago to being strictly vegetarian (no dairy, eggs, etc) and
lost a substantial amount of weight... However I still eat nuts, avocado's,
fresh coconut meat...
Please understand I am not attacking anyone here... I understand there are
many people better educated than I am - all I am trying to do is understand
the why's and wherefore's so that I can make the best decisions for my own
