  1. Today
  2. Yesterday
  3. I’ve had two really good days. I have made myself eat breakfast (actually almond milk and frozen fruit and chia seeds smoothie) and my lunch and dinner has been very high protein. I’ve not felt hungry or craving sugar at all, which considering the last month is quite surprising! I’ve done 2 really busy days of working from home and now I’m having a few days off for autumn half term, so tomorrow I’m going to run in the morning then spend the day cleaning my house and sorting the kids rooms out. My food is all planned for the week. It is my daughters 18th on Friday so I will be having a meal
  4. Oh, I didn't think to use it as a dressing! Dang it! Next time, maybe. Upon closer inspection of the two bottles, Aldi's just said "olive oil" while the Kroger brand was "extra virgin." I have no idea what difference that would make, but there it is.
  5. 14 days in the books. iAy, Carumba !
  6. Dinner was delicious last night. Oven roasted potatoes rank above macaroni and cheese as comfort food, in my opinion. There were some left over potatoes that I'm looking forward to frying up with an egg and greens later this week. Plus, I had a nice long hike with the dog, which ended with a 1/4 mile run back to the car to avoid the impending thunderstorm. Followed by a LONG yoga session. I slept so well last night after spending a blissful afternoon/evening. How easy it is to take good care of myself when I'm motivated to do so. Day 24...though I need to check the dijon mustard I
  7. Sometimes it really is a puzzle, but when it turns out right, it's so lovely! I personally have more success with avocado oil than olive oil, but now based on your comment, I wonder if it's actually brand dependent. The only advice I can offer is to make sure all your ingredients are room temperature. Also, if the mayo doesn't turn out, add seasonings and turn it into a creamy salad dressing or a marinade.
  8. Vegetable Spiralizer is good to be quick with cutting or slicing vegetables. Manual: Spiralizers enable you to cut vegetables at lightning speed with chef-like precision. They are good to get a healthy and presentable meal on the table. Electric: They enable the chopping and styling of veggies in a faster way. If you require a bulk of chopping and trimming then electric choppers are good to go
  9. DAY 10 coffee; leftover chicken-vegetable stir fry herbed-lemon potatoes; tin of smoked mussels; sauerkraut kombucha tomato-cabbage soup; grapes + tahini; 1 tandoori chicken thigh
  10. Last week
  11. R1D25 1st: boiled eggs, smoked salmon, avocado, roasted carrots and sweet potatoes 2nd: forgot to grab lunch 3rd: buffalo shrimp with spaghetti squash, salmon patties with avocado So apparently Kroger brand olive oil doesn't work in Whole30 mayo. Got some from Aldi on my way home and it worked like a charm. Feeling like superwoman today, but it's that time in my cycle. I'm using it to my advantage to get some heavy home improvement projects done. Thank goodness I'm off tomorrow so I can hopefully finish it.
  12. Hello, I wasn't sure where to put this question, I am not actually in a round right now, but am/was considering a start date of Nov 1st. I had my MD run blood testing for food allergies last week because I wanted some cold hard facts about what I should definitely eliminate irregardless of doing a W30, and they came back completely normal today. I don't even know what this means now! I want to feel better but my bloodwork indicates it may not be a food issue?!? I have the idea that maybe I should just cut out things you can read about easily that are gut irritants and such, ie coffee
  13. Angela, you are so inpiring!! Thank you for sharing your story.
  14. Congratulations!! You got this, sounds like you have had life challenges that got in the way, but you are back on track. You have to cut yourself some slack and just look forward now. I just started my third week on Whole30 and I feel awesome!! I have a lot of weight to lose, so reading your story made me realize that I have to really stay focused. It also reminded me that this is a lifelong journey and I will need to figure out my plan for moderation and reintroduction of certain foods in a way that still keeps me on track.
  15. I can't believe the weekend has come and gone and I did no journaling...Saturday, Day 21, was on-plan. Yesterday, I didn't feel well, a stomach bug or something, and I didn't eat much or do much. I slow-cooked a pork roast for carnitas over the weekend, but didn't do the rest of my planned meal prep. Friday after work I stopped at a new produce stand and loaded up on greens - collard greens, rainbow chard, salad mix, plus scallions, mushrooms, and apples. The collard leaves make excellent wraps for sandwiches. Day 23 M1-2 eggs, 3 slices complaint bacon, Paleo Kitchen mayo w
  16. R1D24 1st: scrambled eggs with leftover brussels sprouts and sweet potatoes 2nd: salmon patties with avocado and mayo 3rd: coconut shrimp, cauliflower rice, steamed broccoli w/sliced almonds Had a lovely day with the fam (Gavin and the dogs) hanging out on the couch and then doing meal prep. Had 2 batches of mayo fail and I can't figure out why. The only difference is that I used olive oil from Kroger instead of Aldi. It's a real puzzle. The coconut shrimp was messy to make, but REALLY hit the spot. I might consider using skewers like the recipe suggested next t
  17. DAY 9 coffee; garlic-sautéed gai lan w/ sesame seeds; pastrami; 1/2 avocado salad (lettuce, carrot, pickles, olives, tahini-lemon dressing, nut'l yeast); salmon; baked yam; carrot soup grapes stir fried vegetables + chicken
  18. Yes, nutritional yeast is fine.
  19. Is nutritionnal yeast allowed on the Whole 30 days ?
  20. Hello! I am on day 5 of whole30 and loving it so far. Surprisingly I haven't had any cravings or bad feelings even though I ate processed food and enough sugar to feed a large family on a daily basis. I'm starting a colonoscopy prep today for procedure tomorrow and I'm a bit nervous, but I did find out how to remain compliant to whole30 by searching the forum. I hope to generally feel better, have more energy, and hopefully address some autoimmune issues I have been fighting for the last 15 years using this program. My husband and I are doing this together which is super helpful and we ha
  21. @peacefullyfierce Thank you! I try to keep it simple
  22. Yay! Good for you for wanting better health! Looking forward to hearing how it goes for you
  23. britgirl so glad to have you respond and get energized about this! I am actually sick in bed with a fever right now, ugh, got my flu shot and took a negative Covid test but man, I have been on the couch for a few days with this. I need to go grocery shopping when I'm feeling better. I am also a little apprehensive because I'm starting a new training program on the 7th, same shift just working with a preceptor and learning new things - so I will be more stressed than usual, I wonder? My big challenges are: drinking enough water, planning and prepping meals for workdays, and not having my n
  24. R1D23 1st: tuna and egg salad, celery and cucumbers 2nd: oops, skipped 3rd: fish almondine with roasted brussel sprouts and balsamic vinegar Snack: salmon patties Felt much more energetic today. I've decided to go back to lifting weights instead of doing workout videos. I've asked A LOT of my body the last few weeks, and I feel like doing the same workout 5 days a week was running me down.
  25. DAY 8 coffee; 3-egg omelette w/ roasted vegetables + sauerkraut; 1/2 avocado salad (lettuce, carrot, red cabbage, pickles, tahini-lemon dressing + nutritional yeast); pastrami; baked yam garlic-sautéed gai lan; salmon w/ mustard; handful of black olives; apple; small handful of almonds I'd forgotten how much I love a big plate of garlic-sautéed greens! First week done and one of the main things I've noticed is how much water weight I've lost. I feel lighter. I have more energy and, as a result, want to move more. I haven't had any negative side effects yet, which is
  26. Happy to find you all! Nov 1st: count me in! Like @Rebecca001id planned to start in mid sept but events overtook me and just now getting over flu - had decluttered the chocolate cupboard ( you can guess how I did that!) shopped and cooked and then just wanted hot apple juice for 10 days, then too weary to care what I ate. So Nov 1st will be perfect as a big wedding and birthday w/e next weekend and sometimes you just have to fit in. I clarified butter this eve,( my “post a flag” thing) and will make Mayo and a big batch of bolognese tomorrow so I can be compliant at home this week, and
