A note on ingredients: Fermented foods, including coconut aminos, are considered suspect on the Bulletproof Diet because they can increase your levels of histamine — a chemical your body produces that can cause inflammation in excess. Test your tolerance with different brands of fermented foods, and avoid using them if you notice a negative reaction.
