Coconut Oil and ACV

I thought this was a great post. I was reading a lot about coconut oil, since I gave up dairy in September. I just thought I’d pass it along for any ladies TTC, who haven’t’ given up dairy yet. It’s actually quite incredible, how giving up something, as simple and wheat or dairy, can change so much. I use to have a flushed face all the time, and one day my gf at work told me her sister had the same issues – 10 days off dairy and she was clear skinned. So I tired it- and don’t ever want to go back. It sounds hard, and it is hard, but for the most part- nothing really dairy is good for you, that you can’t find in an Almond alternative…which Almond milk has more vitamins and calcium that cows milk.

I also wanted to share a link on Apple Cider Vinegar. I know us ladies, when TTC, it feels (more than feels, it quite accurate to confirm) that we have read every possible solution to help treat infertility- especially when the doctor tells you it ‘unexplained infertility’.  Being told you have “unexplained infertility” was like hearing him say, “You are working fine- apparently a baby just doesn’t think you’re good enough”.

Anyway, if you haven’t already Apple Cider Vinegar (in the raw), is so good for you. It helps loose weight, clears up your skin, and allows you to change your diet for the better, if you are finding it more difficult to eat healthy after being addicted to holiday foods the last few months.

Anyway, I was reading some articles today, and wanted to pass it along, for anyone who hasn’t tried these alternatives.

  1. Very interesting. I’ve been using coconut oil a lot lately in cooking, body scrub, moisturizer and hair treatment mixed with other oils.

    I’ve never been fond of the taste of milk to drink. While I’ve never attempted to quit dairy, I do like a nice glass of almond milk. 🙂

    If it’s ok to ask, is everything going well with the pregnancy?

    • So far so good- I’m at 16 weeks, and I starting to feel little flutters every now and then (maybe once a day if I’m lucky). I have my 16 week check up this Friday, my nervous as all Hell about the 20-week anatomy ultra sound. I’ve heard and read my fair share of horror stories, and can hardly sleep. 4 more weeks. I’m just trying to enjoy every bit of it for the next 4 weeks, until the exam.

      • I can totally relate to the worries! 4 weeks can feel like forever. But how great that you’re feeling flutters!! I loved feeling those little kicks. 🙂 I’m so happy you are experiencing this now.

    • Oh also, I cut dairy because it was giving me a skin rash, and drinking ACV in the morning helped give me energy. I was doing that every day and running… and I got pregnant. I can’t say that that’s what ‘did it’, but my husband and I still can’t figure out how it happened… especially because he is only home on the weekends! Must have been the perfect storm between ovulating, losing weight (I lost quite a bit this year) eating better and reducing dairy.

      • Whatever it was that did it, I’m glad it worked!! 🙂

        So, you’ve spiked my interest by saying the ACV gave you energy. I might have to try that!! I could use a little get up and go.

  2. I found your other site, life on the rocks, and was so impressed that you changed your profession to what actually fits you better. Most people don’t have the guts. You are definitely inspiring and thank you for sharing your stories and words with others. These blogs are more powerful than what they may seem. Also, congrats on your bundle, which is probably not such a little bundle anymore.
