I'm a R&D chef working on a Paleo Diet project and the question has come up a few times regarding Gelatin. Is this ok to use in small amounts?

If you have dinner at 6 p.m. and skip breakfast, eating lunch at noon, that would be 18 hours and I doubt anyone would think much of that. Do what feels right to you. Your body will tell you if you need to eat more often.

What would be better to drink: raw grass-fed cow's milk or coconut milk? Nutrition-wise, I'm guessing cow's milk would be better for you, but if you're sensitive to that, then I'd guess coconut milk would be better, but not as nutritious?
