Lugol's in apple cider vinegar has been debated quite a bit in this forum it seems. After reading so many conflicting posts, I ended up concluding that the iodine turns into iodide only in the presence of ascorbic acid, so ACV should be safe. I haven't been enforcing the delayed intake of vit C tabs after the Lugol's though, so thanks for bringing it up. <wombat>
Yes, the coconut oil that I have is extra virgin. It tastes wonderful and wish I discovered it sooner. I think it's okay to mention brand names so the one I got was Jarrow Formulas EV Coconut Oil. Great stuff!
Yeah, rice and veggies is pretty simple. Meat will be the challenge for me though, to get enough calories. Too much rice has also made me queasy and asthmatic but it may be different now. When I was LFRV, I could always rely on bananas to round out the day. Not anymore. I really miss 'em. :(
