  1. Restarting whole30

    Fender I am/have been logging. I think it is just that last "bad habit" that I am struggling to let go of.
  2. Restarting whole30

    Increasing fat and carbs and peppermint tea after dinner helped...still felt the "need" for something after dinner but had the tea and went to bed.
  3. Restarting whole30

    Thanks everyone. I had opened a tin of coconut milk to make my kids some ice-cream, I have dumped the rest of it in the sink now. Can't do the same with nuts and blueberries as I'm not the only one in the house who eats those. I have made an effort to increase my fat and carbs today an hoping that gets rid of the post dinner hungries. I think I need to just go to bed earlier and then the temptation is not there.
  4. Restarting whole30

    Fender..they were mixing coconut cream with frozen blueberries is very tasty : )
  5. Easter menu

    I'm the only one whole30ing here but so far I am making spelt hot cross buns for my family (cause we have to have them apparently) Going to roast a leg of lamb so that is easy, with roast potato/sweet potato and a stack of green beans and Brussels sprouts. Plenty of bone broth in the freezer to make gravy
  6. I am looking for some advice/ opinions if people are happy to help. I am on day 11 of my 2nd whole30 but think I might need to restart the whole thing. I have been trying to avoid nut snacks and sneaky swypo stuff (hello blueberries almonds and coconut milk) after dinner. I had been doing ok however twice this week I have had nuts/berries after dinner. And then gone back for a second serve. Does this deserve a Restart? Or am I heading into OCD/ED land here? Part of me is saying "restart this was a habit you wanted to break" Part of me is saying " it's blueberries and almonds, lighten up already" So which of my inner voices would you listen to? : )

  8. Yeah, might as well make the most of the restart : )
  9. Best Ever Homestyle Meatloaf

    Yeah, also wondering if I mis-converted something from US to metric. Next question : ) I asked on your blog but will pester you here too. How long would the sauce/ketchup keep do you reckon? I made up the rest of the tomato past I bought for this into sauce for my kids to use.
  10. No time for proper reintroduction

    I had a holiday the week after I finished my first whole 30. It stuffed my re-intro schedule. It has taken me a few weeks post holiday to realise I need to do another whole 30 and a proper re intro with no interruptions. So. Y suggestion would be go enjoy. He trip, come back and start afresh.
  11. Best Ever Homestyle Meatloaf

    Tried th is last night. Next time I will add more eggs as was tasty but crumbly.
  12. Taro and Yam Bean ideas

    So I can eat the yam bean raw? Hmm I am making massaman curry prawns for dinner so might use the taro in that
  13. Taro and Yam Bean ideas

    I have just purchased my first ever Taro and yam bean (jicama) and have no idea what to do with either of them. The girl in the fruit and veg shop said to use the taro like potato and the yam bean like water chestnut Does that sound reasonable?
  14. Sourcing food in Australia

    My local Bushy Park fruit and veg had taro and yam bean(jimica?) in today. Now I just have to work out what to cook with it
  15. Too much fat??

    My thumb is about 2 teaspoons, I will swap : )
