  1. For me I got bloated for a day or two (also coincided with my TOM so it was probably even more exaggerated) and then on day 9? I think, it looked like I lost 5 pounds overnight. Seriously the morning before I was like wow, the holidays were rough on my tummy and the day the bloat went away I was like wtf. Last few days I have fit into dresses I haven't worn in month!

  2. That's what I did with my cod, it had a crust of ground garlic cloves, fresh thyme and salt. I drizzled it in olive oil then baked it in foil. To be honest it was even better the next day as left overs as the garlic had really worked it's magic overnight.

  3. @MizRiki completely understand, I have a lifelong love:hate relationship with my scales. Of all the whole30 things we have to give up, I find that the hardest.

  5. Well it’s day 13 here and I feel good, considering my boy has covid, I’m working from home, I’m missing some really important things at work and have had to leave them in incompetent hands and…. I feel chill. Serene. Ran after I finished working and definitely felt the tiger starting to purr. food prep is one of my ultimate favourite things about this plan. Is my Sunday ‘me time’, while cooking the family roast I make all my things for the week. Usually it’s my mayo, a meat thing (eg koftas, fish cakes or chicken) for lunches, a veg thing (this week it was roasted tomatoes with garli

  6. Whoo! It happens to the best of us. You can do it this time. I think a lot of people don't make it through their first time.

  7. It looks like everyone on this thread is doing OK. Best of luck to all. Started 10/12 and crashed on 23rd day. Restarted on 1/2, 11 days in the books.

  8. Hi Tiffysquid, thanks for the feedback. My use of the term "breading" is confusing, admittedly. I was really referring to a "coating" for fish, poultry that can be used when baking or sautéing. Under the Whole30 rules, using almond, cassava, coconut flours etc are compliant within the context of cooking a protein - but not for the purpose of recreating "baked goods or treats". I just used the term "breading" as a catch-all for any whole30 compliant coating. You can refer to the Whole30 program rules somewhere on this site for more on this. The Suzanne Somers "breading" for fish is

  9. I just made the chicken stroganoff from this site last Saturday - a little time consuming with the prep (aren't they all!) but really satisfying.

  10. I definitely know I need to do some prep this weekend. I have been doing this week on the fly! Been able to pretty much stick to template but tomorrow I am definitely going to get creative! I think I figured out breakfast and lunch. Tomorrow's dinner will probably be very different for me vs. the kids. I do have a primal frozen meal I can pull out if needed. Kids smashed the chicken I made today and my daughter even asked for it to be packed in her lunch tomorrow. I do have another pack of thighs so I suppose I can easily make more for Friday. Just need to figure out the veggie situation. Defi

  11. I am eating a lot more meat and protein than usual. My body just loves this. Within days, I somehow feel better. I lose puffiness in my face, my pants fit better. I don't know if it's *because* the fats and proteins and animal-food are so desired by my body, or because my body's delighted *not* to be dealing with a bunch of sugar and processed carbs and legumes. In any case, it's sure nice. Cooking-wise, my favorite W30 thing to do: at night before bed, put a couple sweet potatoes or yams in the digital oven, and set a timer. Wake up to wonderful smells in the house, and something
