    You can do whatever you want while not on a W30, but under zero circumstances do I believe that soda of any variety makes you anything but LESS healthy. Your call though!
    Personally, I can't stand the taste of it anymore. Sickeningly sweet

    It's so much easier to just use Google to search for your whole30 questions! 99.9% of the time the first result will be a forum post and then you can go from there

    If you are looking for sauces...
    1. Start with the Whole30 recipes Instagram page or Facebook page. There is a a guest host each week, and they often have great sauce ideas.

    This is one of my favorite dishes but is normally made with brown sugar and wine. I picked up some chicken thighs and legs at a farmers market last week and wasn't sure what to do with them until I realized I could make this favorite Paleo-friendly! It turned out AMAZING. I served mine over cauliflower mashed, but it would also be great over any veggie.
    2.5 lbs chicken thighs & legs
    1 clove of garlic, peeled and chopped
    1/8 cup dried oregano
    coarse salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
    1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
    1/4 cup olive oil
    1 cup pitted and chopped dates
    1/4 cup spanish green olives
    1/4 cup capers with a bit of juice
    1. Preheat oven to 350
    2. In a large bowl, combine all of the ingredients except for the chicken
    3. Place chicken in a baking dish and cover with the combined ingredients (make sure the fatty side is facing up)
    4. Bake for 1 hour, basting frequently with pan juices
    When done, serve over mashed cauliflower and add lots of the pan juices
    Hope you like it!

    Salmon cakes are great! You could also make some fish tacos - look up some whole30 blackened fish spice rub recipes and cook some white fish in a cast iron if you have one. I use lettuce for my "taco" shell, and you could also use thinly sliced jicama. Add some mango salsa, coleslaw lime juice and avocado - so delicious and you won't even miss the tao shell

    I used to really dislike "white fish" night at our house but I've found some recipes I really love that have turned that right around and now they are some of my favourites!
    Cod + either a homemade or store-bought but compliant olive tapenade + fresh tomatoes. Mix the tapenade with some anchovie paste and spread over the cod. Top with tomatoes (halved cherry toms or sliced regular toms). Bake at 425 until the fish is done....around 12-15 minutes depending on how thick your fillets. This is SO good the next day mixed up w/ some homemade mayo as a sort of cod-salad. 
    I have another recipe that we've been using a lot lately for white fish and I am completely blanking on it right now so I'll come back and update this later today when I get home. Day 2 Brain....no workie!

    Tilapia doesn't have a very strong fishy flavor, so you might like it, you could follow this recipe, or just put a little olive oil, salt, and pepper on it and bake it at the temperature and time mentioned:   http://www.thepaleobabe.com/baked-lemon-herb-tilapia-recipe/
