  4. 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.
  5. 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
  6. 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
  7. 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
  8. 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
  9. Yes, nutritional yeast is fine.
  10. Is nutritionnal yeast allowed on the Whole 30 days ?

  12. 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
  13. @peacefullyfierce Thank you! I try to keep it simple
  14. Yay! Good for you for wanting better health! Looking forward to hearing how it goes for you
  15. 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
  16. 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.
  17. 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
  18. 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

    Starting Whole 30! 10/25/21
  20. Recently I joined whole30 Thank yew moderator for doing this job!
  21. DAY 7 coffee; chicken-vegetable soup; 2-egg omelette w/ sauerkraut roasted vegetables w/ tahini-lemon dressing; bison jerky; last of the chicken-vegetable soup (yay!) coffee; apple; small handful of almonds banana; herb-lemon potato wedges; tin of smoked mussels A weird day of eating. I ended up staying at work 4 hours later than I'd anticipated, necessitating an emergency grocery store dinner.
  22. R1D22 1st: tuna and egg salad, celery and cucumbers 2nd: 2 salmon patties 3rd: salmon with leftover pico de gallo slaw Less tired today, but still not 100%. I skipped my workout this morning because I knew work was going to be physically demanding today.
  23. Wow, not posted since last weekend. The week has been very up and down. My meals have been ok but I have found myself reaching for sugary things to ease my crappy mood and complete exhaustion. We had a school inspection this week, very stressful, and have limped to the half term break which has finally started today! So I am drawing a line under the week. No point dwelling on it, I do however know that this has got to stop now. I feel so unhealthy. Tired, repeatedly getting sore throats and winter virus, nothing too serious, but just mild things that last a few days. I need to plan my fo
  24. I did make chia seed pudding last night to have for breakfast this morning. As I sat before my computer eating it, I wondered if it was in fact compliant. I did a search through the forums and found technically it's not, because it's a treat with compatible ingredients or a no-brakes food. Chia seed pudding is a fairly new discovery for me, and it's delicious. Just as those egg muffins (are they technically non-compliant because I cook them in a muffin tin with muffin papers?) were that I had for breakfast earlier in the week. I don't typically eat pudding. This is not sweet and I wouldn
  25. Hey everyone. I got to know about the whole30 from a pintreast post. I was so amazed by the whole idea and did a little more research about it. Am totally in.i am struggling with weight lose after two beautiful babies(C-section) I gained over 20kgs. I feel horrible.i have tried several diets but some how I don't get any notable results.(it must be the chronic inflammation...) So frustrating. I have irregular my periods for months now ,always bloated and tired. I am giving this program a try and I will return with my results. Food here is abit different from the recipes shared but m
  26. R1D21 1st:tuna and egg salad, celery and cucumbers 2nd: 2 salmon patties 3rd: fish balls and pico de gallo slaw This was supposed to be the "I'm so over this" day. I had a fleeting craving or two, but I think it's mostly just old habits dying. However, I was beyond exhausted all day. I barely finished my workout, I was dragging at work, and I struggled making dinner. I passed out on the couch with Gavin and the pups afterward. I kind of wonder if I haven't caught some kind of minor crud. Or therapy was more draining than I thought. Or I'm not getting enough recovery
  27. Yay! So glad to hear from you both! I am excited but also afraid, mostly that I will forget how important it is to me once I get going - like once I feel better I hope I don't just think what the heck and eat a piece of pizza or some other unwise thing. It's easy to eat healthy when you are feeling poorly, you know? Also I work 12 hr shifts and don't always have scheduled breaks. That has proven to be challenging as far as food prep (making it a priority when I am already tired) and not just going to the hospital cafeteria and getting chicken strips. Also I have a hard time drinking enou
