If people are struggling with running out of veggies or having a lack of time to prep veggies for breakfast I found that having loads of frozen veg helped loads as a back up. Also if you buy some of the small bags you put in the microwave they are a great time saver when you don’t have time (or energy) to chop, boil water, drain etc. This has helped me with having veg for breakfast on my previous whole30s.
My sugar dragon was prowling after dinner last night (I think I was partly bored) so I had a hot bone broth with coconut milk. Anyone have any tips for distraction techniques in the evenings?? We have an open plan kitchen/lounge so temptation is right there!
@NanSea I make my mayo in a small food processor. As it doesn’t have a hole to pour the oil in with the blender on I start with 1/4 cup light olive oil, add the mustard etc and the egg (make sure it is room temp!!!). Then blitz for 30 secs. Add another 1/4 cup oil and blitz for 30 secs again. Repeat this 3 more times (total of 1 and 1/4 cups oil) and it’s done. It thickens as more each time you add then again when refrigerated. I do this every time and it has never failed. Good luck!!!

I'm in. I don't think this will be a brutal transition for me. I've been working with a trainer and nutritionist for two years and I'm close to my goal. My achilles heel is simple carbs. After 2 weeks of out of control eating holiday sweets, I'm done, done, done with the sugar. I feel terrible, bloated, and head-achy. It's going to be hard giving up dairy and sugar, but I've done even more difficult things. I'm looking forward to a successful Whole30 challenge.
