  1. Seattle Whole 30 places

    I searched and found this thread for you. I hope it helps. http://forum.whole9l...__fromsearch__1
  2. Is it ok to drink kumbucha?

    I have found I prefer black tea. I used green tea and green/black mix, but like just black the best. I do 1 cup sugar per gallon, 8 tea bags and have found 2 weeks is still too sweet, but 3 weeks is too long (too bitter). 2.5 weeks seems to work for me.
  3. Stories from the trenches

    My son looked me in the face and told me with all seriousness..."I will literally die if I can't have Goldfish". We are very thankful he is still with us.
  4. Egg free breakfast ideas, please!!

    We eat bacon, brussel sprouts, mushrooms and sweet potatoes for breakfast it is one of our favs. Cook up the bacon, remove the bacon, cook the rest in the bacon fat, add the bacon back in. Bacon must be compliant, of course.
  5. Jocalat Bars

    I am gunna say chocolate is a no. And, you are correct...this may come close to being SWYPO and not helping to break old habits. Keep in mind, Larabars (and the like) are for emergencies only. Snacks should include all of the nutrients...protein, fat and veggies, consider them mini meals. If you must have a dessert/treat, I like berries with just a bit of coconut milk.
  6. My Second Whole30!

    Welcome back Benji!
  7. Funeral--Air Travel, Staying w/Relatives

    I too am sorry for your loss. I was just going to suggest that same thing...bring a cooler with you or buy a cheap one when you get there. Also, how about offering to make dinner for everyone one night? Surprise them with how absolutely yummy this way of eating is.
  8. Me and my beets....

    A friend of mine gave me this recipe: Peel and cube, steam them to desired 'done-ness', add about 1/3 of a red onion, 1/3 of a jicama, and about 1/3 cup of pineapple with the pineapple juice (not a lot). From there, I add olive oil and apple cider vinegar (or you can use coconut vinegar), a little salt and cinnamon to taste.
  9. pre-workout foods?

    For pre-WOD, the Whole9 Nutrition Workshop Packet says to include a small amount of protein (1/2 a meal size or smaller), and (optionally) a small amount of fat (1/2 a meal size or smaller). Do not add fruit or carb-dense veggies to your pre-workout snack. It specifically says if you train first thing in the morning, something is better than nothing. For post-WOD, try a meal sized easily digestible protein, up to a fist-sized portion of carb-dense veggies and little to no fat. Do not use fruit as your primary post-workout carb source, but rather choose sweet potato or yams or squash or pumpkin or beets. Your post-workout meal is a bonus meal and should not replace breakfast, lunch or dinner. It is designed to help you recover from a high intensity workout. I hope this helps.
  10. Picky eaters

    This is still one of my favorite quotes in the Forum. In this situation, Robin is talking about protein, but the experiment is still the same.
  11. pre-workout foods?

    I workout in the afternoon so I usually eat some leftover protein from lunch and some avocado or some olives or salad with olive oil. It does not have to be much…just a little something and make sure it is protein and fat. Hope this helps.
  12. Bone broth - to skim or not to skim?

    Agreed...skim it.
  13. Rising Moon Organic Pasta Sauces

    I didn't do a whole lot of looking around, but a quick glimpse at the link you provided and it looks like they contain wine and cheese. But, they do sound yummy...yummy for after your W30.
  14. CSA Help

    At my CSA, I assume this is the same everywhere, I can get a half basket vs. full. When I went out of town a few weeks ago, I asked her to only put together a half basket for me since I was leaving for a few days. And, you can always tell the farmer what you like/don't like. For example, I don't want potatoes or corn in my basket, but I love the bok choi so she loads me up on the stuff I like and keeps the stuff I don't like out. I also pick up 3 dozen eggs from her per week. It is wonderful...I would not do it any other way now.
  15. Paleo Bread

    We ask you not to make Paleo versions of old food choices even with individually okay ingredients.
