    On-Plan mustard

    I know what to look for with mustard- specifically no sugar or wine- but the ones I've had have been REALLY sharp and acidic- to the point there's no flavor. Any recommended brands? I've tried Annie's Organic and 365. The brands I like (Maille and Grey Poupon) have sulphites and wine.
  2. Not sure if I should post this here or in reintroduction... I'm coming up on the end of my Whole30 and trying to map out my dairy reintro. Since this is my second go, I'm skipping reintroducing legumes and GF grains, and doing a dairy break down- lactose free, then grassfed, then conventional. Please send ideas for dairy heavy meals.

    9 days in and frustrated

    Other fat sources are olives, avocado and fatty fish like salmon or sardines (make sure they're compliant if they're canned). Definitely make sure brekkie is heavy on the protein and good fats to start the day, along with fiber-full veggies. I made myself a sausage hash- pork sausage, sweet potatoes, broccoli and onions. It gets me through til lunch. If I worked out in the AM, I throw an egg on it, but I don't always miss it. Also make sure you're hydrating.

    9 days in and frustrated

    Are you me? I was coming here for support too. Day 9 on #2 as well! For me, I've made it through FAR worse tummy troubles than I had last time and seem to be ok for the last 24hrs, but now I'm flagging. I like to go through the upcoming circulars and plan my meals around what's on sale. I'm trying to plan but I've lost all drive. I just want to give up, eat what I have on hand and planning be damned. I think I'm also hitting some decision paralysis.
  5. I'm currently in my second Whole30 and, last time I did this, I had no issues with legumes or GF grains. I'm wondering, to give me more time analyzing my reactions to gluten and dairy, is it ok to gloss over the legume/GF reintros- maybe skip them all together. Just leap right into dairy (which I'm breaking into lactose free dairy, then grassfed dairy, then conventional dairy, all with 2 days between), followed by gluten. I would, of course, still stick to the plan of being 100% compliant outside of the reintro areas. I would, once completely done, resume eating legumes and GF grains.

    Corned Beef

    I'm half Irish, half Jewish and I tell me friends I'm corned beef. Corned Beef is an Irish American thing that came about when the Irish immigrants met the Jewish immigrants on the Lower East Side. This is why I tell everyone to avoid any pub in Ireland that serves it.

    Amino Almonds!

    I just adapted my mom's tamari almonds for W30 and they're awesome! Roast 1lb raw, whole almonds at 300F for 15 mins on a cookie sheet, lined with foil or parchment. In a heat-proof bowl, toss almonds with 1/4c coconut aminos and 1/4 tsp salt. Let sit for 5 minutes. Toss again, then place in a single layer on the same sheet, and roast until dark mahogany outside, toasty brown inside. Took me about 30 min, tossing every 10. Let cool completely, then enjoy!

    I'm on day 1 of my second W30 and just realized my vitamin D pill has safflower oil and my vitamin B has cornstarch! While nether is medically required, I definitely would prefer not to go off them if I don't have to. What should I do?
  9. I just started my second W30 and, as I did last time, I shared my plans publicly on Facebook and Insta and told my family. The first time I did this, my mom was very supportive (my dad kinda couldn't care less either way- I just tell him what I can eat and send recipes that will work for everyone). When I told mom in December I'm doing W30 again her initial response was "Why?" Not inquisitive, more judgey. I had some lingering effects from gluten and dairy last time and she felt that means this doesn't work for me. I explained about A) getting out of sync over the holidays and B ) needing to refocus my eating. She sorta shrugged it off. I spend a lot of time with my family and we cook together whenever we see each other. This has me feeling embarrassed and like I don't want to speak up about my needs next time I go to their house.
  10. I found this recently and it looks amazing and W30 friendly if you skip the lentils. My question is, what can I sub in for the lentils, since it needs something to bump up the nutrition and heartiness. I eat all things. Harissa Lentils with Roast Squash and Tahini Dressing

    PCOS and Whole30

    I know this is from a while ago, but as a fellow PCOS sufferer, I wanted to reach out. How did it going? How did the year since go? I did my first W30 in June and noticed better skin- since dropping gluten and limiting dairy, my skin is definitely clearer, though not perfect.

    Lactose Free dairy?

    Last time I did Whole30, I had some issues with dairy. I didn't give it up completely afterward, but am eating significantly less now, though the issues have mostly subsided. I'm doing W30 again in January and planning a multi-step Dairy reintro. First trying grass fed/organic products, wait a few days, then lactose free products, wait a few days, then "standard" dairy. My question is, is there dairy that's naturally lactose free/super low? Other than stuff branded Lactaid?

    W30 Bacon

    I found applegate no sugar at my local Fairway, and Willshire Farms no sugar (package shouts PALEO) at Whole Foods. Willshire was slightly cheaper, but the pieces are so thin I had a hard time separating them to cook. Haven't tried Applegate. Baked it in the oven and saved the fat for cooking.
  14. I don't know where to post this. I'm on day 8 and my stomach's a bit upset. Normally, I'd reach for some tums or pepto but low and behold- BOTH contain sweeteners! Any compliant tips? Currently sipping sleepytime mint tea since it's the only this I could think of, although it's the AM and I'm at work.

    Compliant bacon - FOUND!

    I googled and it's a synthetic Ascorbic acid (vitamin C) (from Livestrong) and, according to Wiki, "Chemically, it is the sodium salt of erythorbic acid." How is that a sugar/sweetener? moreover, in chemistry, sugars tend to end in "ose" or "ol" (fructose, glucose, alcohol, sorbitol).
