  1. Finished Day 10! Made it through a crazy day of meetings and my girl's night. Luckily the friend hosting is doing Whole 30 and another friend has done it before.
  2. I'm on day 9 and I guess most of you are on day 10! 1/3 of the way through. This morning I worked out before eating and came home to make a leftover chicken/egg salad with those things, capers, watermelon radish, cucumber, homemade aioli, lemon juice and tabasco! My husband checked on Tabasco which has no sugar and then I also checked Valentina Salsa Picante a Mexican hot sauce common here in Houston. My kids put it on chips and popcorn, but I'll be adding it to all kinds of Whole30. Anyway, I gobbled down my salad and am feeling pretty full. I can't stand store bought mayo, but LOVE my homemade.
  3. Day 7 and my first all-in dinner, meaning I made everything and embraced the meat and fats! Tenderloin, zucchini noodles with olive oil and red onions, roasted potatoes with s & p, olive oil, parsley & paprika and a slaw made with watermelon radishes, cucumbers, fennel, cilantro dressed with homemade aioli, lemon, olive oil.
  4. I'm a 4/11 er. We celebrate Passover AND Easter and waited until after our Seder to start. Easter was easy-isa, but I was out of town so was just focused on compliance. I probably didn't eat enough over all and ate way to many nuts. I did accidentally discover a great "mock-tail." I ordered a Topo Chico (Mexican sparkling mineral water) with lime at a Mexican restaurant where everyone was partaking in beer and margaritas.The waiter brought me a glass with a salted rim, a nice portion of lime juice along with my bottle of Topo Chico. It was tart and fizzy and salty and felt special. Looking forward to mixing it up with proteins, fats and veggies this week!
  5. How long does homemade mayo/aioli last in the fridge?
  6. Hi, I started on April 11 so am on my Day 7. I've done the Clean Program several times so once I'm in the mode, saying no is pretty easy. Whole 30 has some distinct differences (no legumes, all the meats & eggs allowed, coffee allowed, nightshades allowed). I will say Easter weekend was a bit challenging. I was out of town with my family and had one sister who kept offering me alcohol and sugar. When I said, "no thanks," she moved on and didn't pressure, but it was annoying. My biggest reflection is that last week was about compliance for me, not about planning and taking advantage of recipes and all the things healthy and delicious things I could be eating. We were often in restaurants and I wasn't cooking so, I did eat too much fruit, nuts and nut butters. Not as a sugar fix, but just because I was starving and my meals weren't robust. After Easter dinner which was perfect with grilled leg of lamb and roasted veggies in coconut oil, I grabbed some dried mango and stuck a piece in my mouth only to instantly realize it had sugar on it, I spit it out without chewing it and rinsed my mouth. We keep clean dried mango from costco and trader joes in our home, but this one was from walmart and had all kinds of crap on it. So, my attempt to have dried mango in lieu of Easter candy failed. I'm doing this with my husband and we both are feeling better after week one. He's not a big believer in food affecting his aches, pains, moods, but is already feeling the positive affects! Where is the other April 10 group?
  7. Hi, Just started Whole30 with my husband. I've done the Clean Program cleanse six times. Looking forward to trying this one. Some differences in what's allowed/not allowed and I like not having shakes! I never bought their kit, so it was pretty much whole foods as well. Anyway, looking forward to that anti-inflammatory high that comes with no sugar or alcohol.
