  1. Hello Whole30 Team! Today is Day 1 of my reintro and I'm starting with legumes. I was planning on having beans with my Whole30 complaint meal from Chipotle but it seems they cook their beans in rice bran oil. Does anyone know if I should be still cautious of rice bran oil during my reintro? Technically, it's lumped in with the "no grains" and I would think that would pose a problem with reintroducing groups separately. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated!
  2. Hi all! Today is the last day of my reintroduction period and I dived in with gluten. I don't have celiac and I didn't notice issues with gluten during my last Whole 30. However, today I had some whole wheat toast with breakfast and not even an hoir later...BAM! BRAIN FOG has settled in. Is this a common reaction I can contribute to gluten sensitivity?

    Had to stop my reintroduction for now. Went to a family bbq and was able to avoid bbq sauce on my ribs and butter in my potatoes but my tummy is not happy right now and my lower back is aching again. Boy, I didn't miss any of this.

    Happy Day 30 for those of us who started on Oct 3rd! I'm looking forward to whatever may come with my reintro. How is everyone else doing?

    I'm still working out the kinks in my meal prepping. I have to consider making enough for both myself and the boyfriend. I always have hard boiled eggs in the fridge and bags of mixed greens for quick salads. This weekend I prepared 1.75 lbs of brisket but that was only enough for 3 leftovers. I also have roasted red pepper sauce to add to fried eggs or chicken. I made a large batch of roasted butternut squash and brussels sprouts. Tomorrow I'll be grilling some chicken sausage and chicken breasts to toss into salads.

    @kellydawne, thanks! I'm just happy the second breakfast I had along with some strawberries kept me full until I got home from work.

    So today I grabbed the wrong container and ended up with breakfast for lunch. I'm a little disappointed but I'm also proud of myself for asking the food truck vendor what oil he uses to smoke his tri tip before caving in on buying a splurge meal. Ended up having my second breakfast for the day and asked a coworker to bring me back some guacamole for some added fat.

    @losinggravity, that's a good house mate for telling you to join the forum. It's amazing that how only after 7 days even the simplest of food items like peanut butter can smell so much stronger and richer when you're not the one eating it lol. Push forward! @Diane M, welcome!

    Hello everyone! I started my 1st Whole 30 on 10/3 and I'm feeling pretty good. Days 1-3 I was feeling pretty sluggish and was ready for bed by 8pm. Other than a few minor headaches, I'm really happy I made this decision. Will be going to the grocery store shortly and get my meal prep out of the way. Looking forward to pork chops with apple sauce on a bed of greens!
