"All sounds brilliant! Does anyone know of compliant sausages in the UK?"

 

Green Pasture Farms  sell compliant sausages on line and deliver but obviously depends upon where in the UK you are.

Ingredients: 99% Meat (100% Grass Fed Beef or Pastured Pork), Salt & Pepper

Baby spinach - where do you buy yours? I gave up on Aldi as their's just wasn't 'baby' with thick stalks and large leaves. Now Sainsbury's are going the same way. I want nice little leaves with thin stalks. Any idea where I can get these?

Waitrose still sell baby spinach leaves.

British problem. I enjoy my tea..that's Yorkshire Tea. With milk. Other milk substitutes are just Wrong in tea.

Hate coffee, dislike fruit teas. They are insipid and overpriced, I'd rather drink water.

So what do other people drink? Oh lemon in black tea is OK once in a while, but will rot the enamel on your teeth if drunk by the gallon as I do my tea.

Ideas, please.

I so agree with you. I gave up my Yorkshire gold altogether as I couldn't stand it with almond milk. I never thought it would last but I have actually stopped missing it now. I drink peppermint blends mostly, or plain peppermint. I usually have at least 3 different teas in the cupboard. Pukka do a night time blend which is nice.

Yep. Just drink water.

I actually really like a variety of herbal teas but I haven't really had a milky brew since my first w30 in May 2014. I thought it'd be the first thing I went back to, but it wasn't as good as I remembered. And I feel better when I don't consume dairy.

So yep. Stick with the water.

If you want to investigate herbal tea my current favourites are earl grey rooibos, Taylor's sweet rhubarb, a pukka herbal chai and twinings lime and ginger.

I've substituted Rooibos for tea, can't remember the make, and also got some chai tea bags too, I'll check the make when I'm back as they're compliant.

 

We get an A&C fruit and veg box, I'm thinking of changing it to just veg, and maybe more, as we've suddenly started using it all up with a few days to go, and having to buy more veg in Sainsbury.  We always used to have leftover veg each week, and never sure what to do with it.

Is yeast extract okay?

The concern around yeast extract is mainly with the potential for MSG (and you'd be encouraged to find an option without it) but they actually state on the home page that their products are MSG free.

Keeping true to the South African tradition, we add no chemical preservatives or sugar to our great tasting biltong. Using only 100% prime beef and air drying it to perfection, we maximise quality, flavour and nutrients. Our Biltong has no artificial colouring preservatives or curing agents. We’ve ‘Stript’ all that bad stuff right out, leaving it Gluten Free, MSG free and using only natural ingredients. This makes for delicious biltong that is high in protein, low in fat and packed with essential nutrients for growth and repair.

This is made with 70% juice so I'm afraid it would be out as it's more of a sparkling juice than a sparkling water.

Juice is fine for use in cooking, or for adding a dash to liven up some water, but not for drinking straight up like this.

I'm in the middle of my first Whole30 and found stock really difficult to find. However, Sainsburys do a compliant Veg stock in their 'free from' aisle (so it isn't chilled). Waitrose also do a compliant chicken stock which is found in the chilled aisle. If you can't be bothered, like me, to make your own, these are great for soups and plenty of other dishes!
