  1. I have never liked sweet potatoes until I discovered sweet potato chips, yummy!

    Tessemae's, Ah-mazing!

    It is pretty easy to make your own. I especially love ranch made with homemade mayo.
  3. I finished my first Whole 30 on Jan. 30. I had a check up and blood work done. I got the results today and was so, so pleased. So my blood work results: Total cholesterol: before 187 now 139 HDL: before 49 now 38 (not sure why the change, the nurse said maybe increase your cardiovascular activities. Can't, already go to bootcamp 3 days a week) Triglycerides: before 181 now 127 LDL, bad cholesterol: before 102 now 76. I give the Whole 30 all the credit. I have made great attempts to lower my cholesterol without any luck. But now that I understand how our bodies handle food, it makes more sense. Woot Woot!
  4. One thing I did not try to give up the first time was sugarless gum. And I started this second one still eating it. Is it really that bad?

    2 Days Off...Back On The Whole30 Train Tomorrow!

    Definitely read the forums, so much information. Also get the book, It Starts with Food. Food prep is essential as well.

    2 Days Off...Back On The Whole30 Train Tomorrow!

    Right there with you as well. Finished my first last Wednesday and am on another as of yesterday. I don't think I have fully slayed my dragons so hopefully another 30 will help.
  7. I finished my first Whole 30 on Jan 30 and started my second today. I need more time for my good eating habits to take a firm hold.

    I finished my first Whole 30 last week too. The first day I had popcorn, oh how my gut ached. The second day I was fine but Saturday I ate at a Chinese restaurant, and oh the pain. We had planned on going on a second Whole30 within the week and actually started today. Anyone else? Want to start a new post for those doing their second.

    Popcorn ?

    After I finished my W30 I had some popcorn. Wow the pain I was in! It was like it was ripping itself through my intestines. So sad, I love popcorn!

    Thanks for the advice. I did and they exchanged it!

    8 lbs down! Wish I had done my measurements since that is something I really notice. I am taking a week off then another W30. Good luck to everyone!

    Chicken vegetable soup

    Thanks Mom2A&M, that helps a lot.

    The worst is spending a lot of money on something and it goes bad. I bought some Coconut Aminos from a local health food store and a week later it was growing mold. Wish I kept that receipt!

    How did you make the broth? I am still uncertain where to get bones from. I would just use my grocer, I guess.
