  1. I have this same question about prosciutto -- fat or protein?
  2. Thanks friends, for the help, and @CCLaymon for putting a positive spin on it! I don't really feel any different from eating a half a can of tuna that has a minor amount of soy in it. I will think about continuing, but what they don't tell you is that you basically eat Whole 30 in the reintroduction phase anyways, so I'm not sure whether I'll "restart" or not. My main concern though is the constipation and diarrhea that I have been having. I know the forums say that it may last for a while, and to eat cooked vegetables, not just those that are hard to digest. I feel like I have been doing that, even removing FODMAP foods (some are high in fiber, by the way) and still, no luck! Is anyone else experiencing this? Does anyone have any advice? Here's what my days have been looking like: B: 2 eggs, homemade turkey burger, cooked sweet potato, zucchini, squash, parsnip L: 2 coconut chicken strips, cooked in EVOO, lots of carrots, snap peas D: same veggie mix as above, turkey sausage, 1-2 eggs I have also mixed in salads in there as well, following the meal template as close as I can. HELP!
  3. Hello everyone, I have to confess, I ate a can of Bumble Bee Tuna with Jalepenos today...and then realized it had SOY in it! I am not starting half of a can of tuna can't affect me that much, and this was not like I "caved" into sugar and gotta start over, but an honest mistake. I will be clean from here on out. (But ugh, I hate soy! Hated it since before whole 30) Anyways, I have really enjoyed the energy and having all of my meals prepped for the day! I love the consistency and schedule the meal template helps to provide. My one complaint is that I still have intermittent constipation or or the other, it's always 0 to 60! When I do poop, which is only once every couple days, it is straight liquid. sorry if this is TMI but wondering if anyone else has this issue? I've been reading things should even out, so that's what I'm hoping for. But now that I got soy in my system, who knows!
  4. Try the coconut chicken tenders on here! They are AMAZING! I just made them and YUM. Could be fun to do with another person, too, since you will dip the tenders in all the different ingredients!
  5. Thank you! Looks like this confirms that it is compliant.
  6. Fresh Market Peppers & Onion Turkey Sausage from meat/deli section: "Turkey, Peppers, Onions, water, salt, spices, in pork casing" This looks compliant! Am I right?
  7. @sweetz149 That breakfast picture looks BOMB! I may have to do that spaghetti squash next week! Planning on cooking tomorrow evening. This week involves a lot of chicken, with my favorite jalepeno burger: chicken lettuce wraps chicken salad coconut chicken tenders salmon (haha!) Also going to roast up so veggies to have with eggs, and sides for everything else. Salads involved, too.
  8. Sounds like you are doing great! What kind of breakfast are you making? I've discovered my favorite is a jalepeño Turkey Burger with a yolky egg on top. It is AMAZING. I try to then eat some veggies with that, too, like some carrots, or this morning I did it all on top of compliant mashed potatoes
  9. Oh good to know! Thankful when I find a product that is widely shopped that is compliant. Takes less hassle out of the hunt! (pun intended)
  10. Hunt's diced tomatoes have no added sugar, and minimal ingredients that I found to be compliant.
  11. I hope your trip went well! I found that traveling is hard, too. Took a short day trip to visit my friend today, and made some food ahead of time to be prepared. I knew we were getting coffee, and brought canned coconut milk to try it in the coffee (delicious! it's naturally soo sweet!). Also, whipped up some egg salad with HB eggs and Primal Kitchen Mayo, Kroger brand mustard. SUPER easy and great protein + fat combo. Would be great on bed of lettuce for full meal, too.
  12. I have been finding a neon green residue in the egg whites when I fry my eggs. I got them at the farmer's market, so no chemicals, pesticides, or preservatives. I saw on another site it could be excess vitamin B-12, but looks straight weird! Any hunches? Please tell me my eggs are okay!
  13. I hope your trip goes well today! Also, you said you have FODMAP, right? How did you find that out? were you tested for it, and was that expensive? What do you eat to avoid FODMAP foods? Feel free to message me if easier!
  14. You're right, that Larabar is just a substitute for my sugary craving. If I'm hungry late at night, maybe an apple and some almond butter? I was looking into FODMAP information last night, too...I have had trouble with my stomach since I was a baby (colic, dairy, etc.). And, I love sugar. So may have leaky gut/FODMAP Trying to get enough water! Definitely had around 70 oz yesterday. I weigh 140 lbs, so would that be the amount I am supposed to have? A natural health specialist (from hair analysis) told me that I should take magnesium a while ago. Any recommended brands? I was taking nature made for a while. I'm one of those that's scared of too much fat, I believe I fried 3 eggs in coconut oil this morning, with spices. Then cooked up my mixed greens and some cherry tomatoes, tossed in EVOO. Does that sound like a better choice?
  15. Hello friends, End of Day 4: I am feeling NAUSEOUS...and backed up. Anyone else? I am tying to follow the meal template as best as I can. Here was today: BREAKFAST: Jalepeño Turkey Burger, topped with egg fried in EVOO, apple (for fiber). --coffee to regulate-- LUNCH: two HB eggs in salad, homemade compliant salsa, 1/2 avocado, mixed organic greens DINNER: Mealoaf whole 30 recipe from Real Plans, "mashed" white potatoes with EVOO, cooked green beans in EVOO I have not had any snacks until I got off work tonight at 10pm, and broke out my first Larabar. Trying to limit those to max 2/week. I want to break my sugar/snacking after work habit! Also, felt nauseous day 2, and my local health food store sells compliant ginger kombucha on tap! This was a life saver. What tweaks or advice do you guys have for me?
