    coffee sweetener???

    I'm actually on my second round. And the desire for some sweetener in my coffee hasn't gone anywhere. I'm drinking it black, but I don't like it. Thanks anyway.

    Walden Farms?

    Yeah, this kind of sucks, because I was doing really well. I wish I'd posted BEFORE I drizzled that stuff on my salad. But I'd have had to start over anyway. I only just realized that my garlic salt has sugar in it. At least I'm only a few days in. This would really suck if I was in a couple of weeks.

    Walden Farms?

    Walden Farms products bill themselves as being sugar free, fat free, carbohydrate free, gluten free and cholesterol free. I don't like most of their stuff, but I DO like their Honey Dijon flavored dressing. Here are the ingredients: Triple filtered purified water, apple cider vinegar, white vinegar, vegetable fiber, salt, dijon mustard, xanthan gum, cellulose gel, food color, mustard flavor, honey flavor, potassium sorbate, sodium benzoate, sucralose, beta carotene, caramel color, DS&C yellows#5, cayenne pepper. Is this compliant???

    Portion size????

    Thank you!!
  8. I'm starting Day 2 of my first round of Whole 30. Last night I made stuffed bell peppers. The recipe said it would serve two, but I'll get four meals out of it. Ditto with this morning's frittata. I'm just wondering where these portion sizes are coming from. Also, does anyone know if the frittata will freeze okay? Thanks.

    Apple pumpkin breakfast bake

    Thanks. That's kind of what I thought too. Looks like a fritatta for me tomorrow!
  10. I saw a recipe that claims to be Whole 30 compliant, but I'm not sure. The ingredients are pumpkin puree, eggs, full fat coconut milk, banana, pumpkin pie spice, cinnamon, salt, apple and pecans. All the ingredients seem fine to me, and it's meant to be eaten at breakfast, like a quiche. But there's that whole thing about no desserts, and this is baked, so I'm not sure if this is compliant or not. I'm only just starting out (today is Day One), so I don't want to sabotage myself already. I'll post the recipe here. PUMPKIN APPLE BREAKFAST BAKE (PALEO, WHOLE30) PREP TIME10 MINUTES COOK TIME40 MINUTES TOTAL TIME50 MINUTES SERVINGS9 AUTHORAMY 4.55 from 11 votes PRINT INGREDIENTS 1 cup pumpkin puree 3 large eggs 2/3 cup full fat coconut milk 1 large ripe banana mashed 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice 1 tsp cinnamon divided 1/4 tsp salt 1 large apple peeled and diced (I use pink lady) 3/4 cup chopped pecans Get IngredientsPowered by Chicory INSTRUCTIONS Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Grease an 8x8 square pan with coconut oil or spray, set aside. In a large bowl, combine pumpkin, banana, eggs, coconut milk, pumpkin pie spice, 1/2 tsp cinnamon, and salt. Using a hand mixer or immersion blender, beat the ingredients together. In a separate bowl, sprinkle remaining cinnamon on the diced apple and coat the apples. Now mix into the wet ingredients. Pour into square pan. Sprinkle the pecans along the top of the dish, and place in the oven. Bake for 35-40 minutes (depending on oven). You will want the top to be mostly firm and golden on the top. Let sit for at least 10 minutes before serving. You can also chill and store in the fridge for up to a week. Serve warm, cold, or at room temperature!

    Sunflower/pumpkin seeds?

    I plan to start Whole30 on Monday. I've been getting rid of the stuff in my pantry and fridge that aren't on the plan. I do have some salted sunflower & pumpkin seeds. Are they okay? Also, I think I'm reading that almonds and walnuts are okay, but peanuts are not. Just want to make sure I start off on the right foot!

    Starting January 22nd

    Hello. I'm planning to start the Whole30 program on Monday, January 22nd. This may be tough for me, because I usually get my groceries from the food bank, which usually only has rice, beans, packaged goods, and peanut butter. Fresh stuff is often just this side of rotten. So, I'm going to have to get my groceries from the grocery store, and I hope I'll be able to stick to the plan. I've been trying to eat up the stuff I've got that's not on the plan, which is practically everything in my pantry and fridge. Still, I know I need to do something drastic to break this addiction to sugar and other cr*p I have no business eating. All the support I can get would be appreciated!

    Hot dogs???

    I plan to start Whole30 on Monday. I've been getting rid of the stuff in my pantry and fridge that aren't on the plan. But I have a package of hotdogs. They're not even high quality hot dogs, but I don't have a whole lot of money, so I'm wondering if hot dogs or lunch meat is okay. Can you help?

    Haven't started yet

    I haven't started yet, but I know I need to do something drastic. I've looked in my fridge and pantry, and I'd say a good 90% of what's in there, is on the NO list. Truly! Also, I eat from food banks often as my money is pretty limited. I'm hoping I can do this. Any words of wisdom for me?
