    salsasis14 got a reaction from ladalton in 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!

    salsasis14 reacted to laura_juggles in Natural Flavors added to food?   
    @AAC5453 I've copied and pasted this from the FDA website:
    How can I know if there is MSG in my food?
    FDA requires that foods containing added MSG list it in the ingredient panel on the packaging as monosodium glutamate. However, MSG occurs naturally in ingredients such as hydrolyzed vegetable protein, autolyzed yeast, hydrolyzed yeast, yeast extract, soy extracts, and protein isolate, as well as in tomatoes and cheeses. While FDA requires that these products be listed on the ingredient panel, the agency does not require the label to also specify that they naturally contain MSG. However, foods with any ingredient that naturally contains MSG cannot claim “No MSG” or “No added MSG” on their packaging. MSG also cannot be listed as “spices and flavoring.”
    If you're going to call someone out, maybe get your information from the source of the regulation rather than a propaganda website like "truth in labeling". We already recommend that people not consume products with the list I made bold above because of the naturally occurring MSG. However, just as fruits and veggies are allowed despite their naturally occurring sugar and even tomatoes with their naturally occurring MSG, no one is going to show up at someone's house and kick them out of the Whole30 for using a beef broth with yeast extract in it. 

    We can encourage people to make better choices and look for items that don't contain added flavorings or preservatives, but if that cup of coconut-flavored coffee with "natural flavorings" makes someone a little happier when they're having a tough day or a can of LaCroix with its "natural flavorings" helps someone kick a 4-Diet-Coke-a-day habit, it's not a bad thing. It's better for us to cheer someone on for their small steps of progress than to tell them "oh well, you made soup with broth containing yeast extract and that's mucked it all up too bad you're not trying hard enough."

    Can I just comment here that not everyone follows the timeline so if you're NOT experiencing the listed 'symptoms' you're not necessarily doing it wrong - also sometimes the expectation actually brings it on, which isn't always the best thing

    Comparison is the thief of joy - enjoy your OWN journey!!
