Q: Coconut showed up as a "moderate intolerance" in a recent allergy screening. We have a lot of allergies and intolerances in our house (gluten, soy, peanuts, and dairy), and I've been relying on coconut flakes, oil, milk, and butter for a lot of my cooking. Any substitution ideas?

Editor: Olive oil, avocado oil, and grape seed oil are all excellent subs for everyday cooking and many baking recipes. You might also try goat milk and other goat milk products, as these are sometimes easier for people with dairy intolerances to digest.

Readers, what other substitutions do you suggest Kristin try?
