    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?

    After spending a day or several playing Tupperware Cupboard Jenga, you realise this means your freezer needs restocking

    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"...

    You cook dinner & discreetly hack off & eat the fat from your OH's steak before serving because you know he'll just leave it or FEED IT TO THE CAT

    Bone Broth: How much? How often?

    You need some bones Put them in a big pot on the stove, or in the slow cooker, or a pressure cooker. Add enough water to cover, a good splash of apple cider vinegar (to help leach out the minerals), peppercorns & then optional herbs & veg: veg could be a whole carrot, celery sticks including leaves, onion, onion skins, garlic if you want. Maybe some sprigs of rosemary or thyme. Bring to the boil. On the hob it'll need at least 2 hours, 1 hour in a pressure cooker, in the slow cooker at least 24 hours. Strain out the solids & enjoy

    I find adding a little salt when you come to drink it works wonders And if you decide you can't stand to drink it as it stands, you can always use it to make soup & add it to stews

    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*
