    Hear you on the coffee! It seems to upset my gi track so I switched to caffeinated green tea which has 25 to 50 percent less caffeine than coffee for a few days then to decafeinated green tea and actually like it just as well as coffee. I put a slice of lemon in and it's nice and warm like the coffee. Hope this might help you.

    I will be continuing. Just saw a functional health dr for some intestinal and autoimmune issues. I had scheduled this appt prior to the whole30. Much of my intestinal problems have already resolved on the diet but I need some tweeking. Found out I have a yeast issue as well as high sulfa. So eggs are now out for me as well. Will be having lab work and sending in a sample of my stool. Yay! So thankful for dr like this. He was very pleased with my whole30 and said I am on the right track. Just need a little extra help with some of the detox.

    My daughter is coming home from college next week and was cleaning her room when I found a little dish of MnM's. started to reach for a few and stopped myself! Our kids are grown or in college and with hubby doing the whole30 as well none of that stuff is around. Scary how mindlessly I reached for those! A definite habit to break...yikes!

    A friend wants to meet tomorrow for lunch at Panera. Anyone know of anything compliant there to drink or eat? I was thinking a salad and bring my own dressing... maybe tea?

    I have a question. Silk almond milk unsweetened has locust bean gum in it. That means it is not whole30 approved. Am I correct? Haven't used it since starting because of that. Only use it in my coffe in the am. Thanks

    Hi guys, started the whole 30 on April first with my hubby. Couple of questions. Everyone seems to be sleeping really well. I have been the opposite. Difficulty falling asleep(not my norm) and waking in the middle of the night(not uncommon for me). Took some camomile tea last night and 2 250mg magnesium before bed and that helped but then 3 hours later wide awake. Husband has been sleeping great. I am starting to get a little stressed about it as I know how important sleep is. I drink one cup of coffee a morning(used to be two) with coconut cream milk after/with my breakfast. For during the day I have non caffeine iced tea. Would appreciate any suggestions.
