    If you mean curd as in curds & whey, then no. If you mean curd as in lemon curd, then no. I could have just said no, couldn't i?

    coconut water?

    Coconut water is fine as an electrolyte replacement type drink if you're doing a lot of exercise - other than that it's kind of sugary for everyday use. And part of the idea of a whole30 is to get away from using food & drinks as "a treat"...

    She's been following the Dukan diet, in which sugar is bad, but artificial sweeteners are A-OK She's done worse diets, i guess (eat nothing but fruit every Monday, anyone?)

    Had this chat with my mum over a forthcoming visit Mum: so, we got your email, i'll try & do something without gluten then. Me: ...or dairy Mum: of course. You can still have a yogurt though? Me: no, that's dairy. And sugar. Mum (incredulous): what, even the low fat ones?? Me: sigh

    Confused - Sulfites in Balsamic Vinegar

    Added sulfites are the ones you want to avoid. Naturally occurring sulfites are ok

    My mum (because I'd explained my first whole30 as an elimination diet): "So, this gluten allergy you thought you had - it's all better now is it?" Me: *sigh*

    My 5 year old daughter was carefully studying the books on my kitchen shelf. "Mummy, you've got a book called Make It Potato!" Ah, yes. That would be the one between 500 Potato Recipes & Practical Potato ;-)

    Heh, the way my Sugar Dragon's been roaring today he was lucky not to end up with a thick ear - Whole30-compliant, obviously ;-P

    My other half has bad eczema on his feet which has been bothering him lately. As i sat watching him picking his feet (romantic night in!), i said "are you going to make another appointment with the doctor? Or perhaps you could do an elimination diet like i've been doing?". He replied "Well, i have been, haven't i? I eat the same dinner as you" Yes, dear. We'll just discount the porridge oats for breakfast, the pizza/burger/sandwich/sausage roll at lunch, the chocolate biscuits in your cup of tea (milk, one sugar), the bowl of ice cream with chocolate raisins after your Whole30-compliant dinner, the nightly can of beer & the smoking. Sounds like a pretty good Whole30 to me! What?

    My mother-in-law has numerous allergies & sensitivities, including (but not limited to) dark chocolate, bananas, washing powder, hayfever, damp & strawberries "that have gone over a bit". She's recently been suffering from an all-over itchy fine rash, which she's attributing to excess washing powder deposits in her clothes. I casually remarked that sometimes an underlying & not-immediately-obvious sensitivity to wheat or gluten could make the immune system overworked & unable to fight off other allergens, "fascinating" i said... She smiled at me blankly & said "Yes, i think i'm just going to buy a new washing machine" Hmm
