  1. Grace, When in the “tropics” of say, Nicaragua, do you use Coconut Oil on your skin (I use it as an eye cream sometimes and on my legs) and/or your hair? I’m thinking that it may be to hot and therefore Oily to use on my skin (running off) and hair (attracting bugs! Yikes!) when I come to do the Ometepe Retreat with you and Randi Smith in a few days… Thoughts?

  2. Just ordered some maca powder to make this recipe. Can I use Almond milk instead of Hazelnut milk?! Or is there some nutrient specific to hazelnut that i miss on otherwise.
