  1. Reaction...?

    @SugarcubeOD one step ahead of you Thank you! I get migraines quite frequently, have since I was younger so it's no surprise. They have been a lot better since starting whole30 though! Just wanted to be sure I wasn't eating something I shouldn't have. Thanks!
  2. Reaction...?

    Immediately after dinner I got a headache and stomachache. I ate ground turkey, lettuce, tomatoes, approved salsa, 1/2 avocado and homemade plantain chips w/coconut oil. All of these things I have eaten before with no reactions. Is it because of a food, or maybe I didn't have enough water today...? I do normally get migraines often, but since whole30 I've only had a few so that could be possible as well...
  3. So while looking online for foods that are legumes to start reintroduction....I am having a huge panic attack seeing peas on the list. I don't know how I missed this!!!! I ate about 1/2 cup of peas for dinner on either day 28 or 29 (I can't remember) and now am feeling very guilty. Do I need to restart??
  4. @SugarcubeOD Yes I am guessing peppers maybe? Or cashews are new as of yesterday but that was at lunch time. And yes I mean new by I usually don't eat peppers, if anything just a few chopped up in a recipe and I've never ran across this issue. Broccoli I do eat very often normally, just haven't in the past 2 weeks. So strange!
  5. Good Morning! So I am on Day 22 and changed up my breakfast this morning a little bit (not too much) and seem to be having some strange reaction and I can't figure out what food it is to! The feeling is hard to explain. Almost like I can't get a "gas bubble" out of like my throat? I am yawning constantly and feeling like I may need to burp (which I never do so this is very rare for me). But basically the reaction is I feel like I'm not breathing correctly/have a gas bubble in my throat I cannot get rid of and have been yawning constantly (not from being tired). If that makes any sense at all... For breakfast I made an egg veggie bake this week with eggs, broccoli, peppers, onions and kale. I have been routinely eating kale, eggs and onions for the past 3 weeks. I normally eat broccoli, but haven't in the past 2 weeks. And peppers are new for me. Any ideas as to what food may be doing this? I feel it right after breakfast and it continues all day. My lunch is the same as the last 2 weeks so that couldn't be it. This just started happening yesterday after the first day of this new breakfast and is happening again today after breakfast. Thank you!!
  6. Eating correct meals?

    @jmcbn Okay, just to clarify... If I workout in the morning (wake up at 6, workout 6:15-6:45 and breakfast around 7-7:15) I don't need a pre workout, just post lean protein followed by breakfast at 7-7:15 And if I workout from 4-4:30 (with lunch at 12:10), no pre WO, just add more protein or fat to lunch and then lean protein after working out then just have dinner around 5:30-6?
  7. Eating correct meals?

    @jmcbn Okay so other than the workout meals, the lunch and dinner looks okay? And I'll switch breakfast to just eggs/veggie bake cooked with ghee instead.
  8. Eating correct meals?

    @jmcbn It depends on the day. Some days I workout first thing in the morning, and in order to get to work on time I workout, eat breakfast, get ready for the day and leave.If I workout after work it's around 4 in which I will eat a pre workout meal of like hard boiled egg and workout, then it will be time for dinner (I eat dinner around 5-6.
  9. Eating correct meals?

    @jmcbn My lunch is about 1 and 1/4 cups of the entire mixture of ground turkey, kale, carrots, mushrooms, zucchini, onions and garlic. So not 1.5 cups of just the turkey, I make the mixture together if that makes sense? For dinner the chicken is probably 2-3 "tenderloins" size so smaller. I have very tiny hands haha so it is the size of my palm. I typically workout 5 days a week and will eat a hard boiled egg before (I don't ever exceed more than 2 hb eggs a day. So if I eat one before working out I omit it somewhere else) I am not hungry between breakfast and lunch, but I eat lunch at 12:10 and start getting hungry by 4:30-5
  10. Hello. I am on day 18 of my Whole30 journey and am not noticing huge changes and my clothes seem to be getting tighter, or maybe the same but definitely not any looser. My skin is starting to clear up slightly so that is a major benefit. However, I'd like to know if I am doing this correctly! I haven't stepped on a scale so I am not sure weight wise if I have gained or lost. I do drink about 90+ oz of water a day usually. Anyway, I'm looking for guidance if my meals are correctly portioned. This is what a typical day looks like lately. Breakfast: 3-4 eggs scrambled in ghee with broccoli & kale, a banana, 1 tbs almond butter, coconut flakes, and a sprinkle of walnuts Lunch: 1 and 1/4 cup of A mixture of ground turkey, mushrooms, zucchini, carrots, onions, kale and garlic sauteed together, a clementine and a hard boiled egg. Handful of celery sticks/carrots with tessemae's ranch Dinner: Spaghetti squash with homemade sauce (tomato puree with blended celery carrots and onions) and homemade meatballs (ground turkey, ground pork, carrots, celery, onions) OR Chicken, broccoli and half a sweet potato with a salad (lettuce/spinach with cherry tomatoes and one hard boiled egg) OR turkey burger with a salad (lettuce/spinach, cherry tomatoes, hard boiled egg, tessemae's ranch) and steamed veggies (broccoli, zucchini, sweet potato) Thank you in advance for your help!
