    Sugar-Free Pancetta?

    I want to make the Roasted Roots with Chicken recipe from the Whole30 Cookbook but the pancetta at both Trader Joes and Whole Foods had some form of sugar in it. Anyone know where I could find sugar-free pancetta?

    How often do you grocery shop?

    How often do you grocery shop so that you have enough food but not so much that stuff starts to go bad? My official start date isn't until Oct 1st but using this week as a practice week. I don't think I've ever bought so much perishable food at once. Bummed that the mung bean sprouts I bought just a few days ago are already slimey and bad. The riced cauliflower is already showing signs of spoilage as well. I'm thinking I may have to grocery shop 2xs a week instead of my usual 1x a week. Anyone have any tips? Maybe a cheat sheet of foods that should be eaten as soon as possible? Or storage tips -how do you keep your food as fresh as possible?

    Thanks Shannon!
  6. Prepping for my upcoming Whole30 and shopping for staples. I know their other chicken broth is not compliant b/c of the canola and safflower oil, but wasn't sure about this one.

    Newbie starting October 11th!

    Today my hubby and I committed to do the Whole30. We decided on an official start date of October 11th - the day we return from on out-of-state trip. It's a few weeks out but will use the time from now til then to read the book, plan, prep the house and "practice" with some whole30 compliant meals. I've been looking at the cookbook and see a lot great recipes I want to try. Reason for jumping in is skin issues and energy. I have had acne, eczema and overall irritated skin ever since I was 11 and have never fully cleared it up (except for a brief Proactiv stint that later resulted in a benzoyl peroxide allergy). I also have hypothyrodism and hormonal imbalances. My husband has unexplained rashes throughout his body that are really uncomfortable for him. Really excited to see if going through this program will help with these issues. I have good feeling that it will!
