    January start, based in New Zealand

    Hi Hadley, thanks but I've finished my whole30 now. I found somewhere to get collagen creamer and I just get my ghee from the supermarket. Do you get good service from iherb? Their reviews are pretty bad from what I can see. Thanks, Leah.

    Compliant Coconut Milk

    I’ve just been using the canned stuff now. Tastes alright to me ☺️

    Hey SuzQNZ, so good to hear from someone else in Auckland! I've just hit day 15 today Thanks for that link, I was trying to figure out how I could get vital proteins here, I really want to try their collagen creamer. I have just been putting coconut milk in my coffee, but would like to add a little bit more flavour. I have a Soda Stream at home so that side of it isn't too bad, but I definitely contemplate the La Croix every time I'm at Countdown haha. Have you seen Milk Frothers anywhere? My parents had one a few years ago before they upgraded to a real coffee machine, but I really want to get one so I can make "bulletproof" style coffee in a mug. I thought they would be at Briscoes or even New World at a stretch, but I haven't found them anywhere Thanks!

    Day 3 feeling good

    Thanks for your responses ladies Things are looking up, I'm not getting as hungry anymore so I think I'm either plating better or just getting used to the structure of no snacking. I've only had one day of feeling REALLY tired, so hopefully things will continue to look good haha.

    Day 3 feeling good

    Ok good to know, thanks. Yeah I am following the meal template, maybe I need to use more veg. I'll see how it goes. Thank you
  6. Hi everyone, today is my third day of my first whole30 and I feel fine...I didn't have the day 2 hangover and I'm not feeling annoyed by everything today (I think that is the norm for day 3? or is that day 4?) Am I likely missing something...? Or was my diet not as bad as I thought prior to starting this? The only thing I feel really is that I'm more hungry between meals, but I've put that down to the portion control I'm doing, as well as not snacking. Anyone else found this? Thanks!

    Compliant Coconut Milk

    Ah ok thanks Shannon. I had thought about using the canned stuff, but I just wasn't sure if it would go with coffee alright. Good to know!
  8. Hi team, I've just started my Whole30 today! And I'm looking to find a compliant coconut milk to put in coffee, there are tins of it at the supermarket but they seem more for just the cooking side..so I was looking at ones that are made for drinking, like almond and soy milks. BUT, I get really thrown by some of the ingredients...are the ones I've copied in below compliant? Ingredients: Filtered water, coconut cream (min. 8%), inulin, mineral (calcium, phosphate), emulsifier (471), vegetable gum (407, 418), natural flavours, sea salt. If not, does anyone know of a good one you can get in NZ? I had already decided to not worry about coffee while I'm doing this, but figured if I can find a good milk I could give it a try. Thanks!! Leah.

    Thanks @kirbz and @ladyshanny for such quick replies! I am following both Whole30 and Whole30 Recipes on Intstagram and have requested the cook book from my library, so I should be ok for proper meals I hope! It is mainly the coffee side, I'm not super reliant on it, I've only recently started drinking it and have almost weaned myself off the sugar!! It is just nice to have I guess, maybe I'll try adding almond or coconut milk. I have done the bulletproof coffee before, I could just go back to that (I just had to add a teaspoon of honey in so we'll see haha). Good to know I don't really need the collagen, I just noticed that both Instagram stories this morning were promoting putting it in coffee. I thought I had found it nice and cheap through the company my partner gets his protein from but they put sweetener in it! Probably just give it a miss then. Okay, I'll keep it simple Not having just a bowl of muesli for breakfast is sure going to be interesting! Thanks!!
  10. Hi everyone, I'm starting my first Whole30 on Jan 3rd (my partner's birthday is the 2nd so I had to wait for that to be over haha) and am a little nervous! I live in New Zealand and am worried I'm going to struggle to find compliant foods as easily. I really want to get nutpods for my coffee but don't know where I can get a substitute here, I checked their website and they don't ship to NZ. I was looking at collagen peptides as well but the VitalProtein shipping to NZ is a LOT. Is there anyone on here from NZ that has had success finding good Whole30 products? Thanks team! Leah.
