  1. Thank you for your comments! I really appreciate them. I just finished my whole30 yesterday. I realized that yeah, it's about listening to your body, but I also started to visually get the idea of the portions that I was eating. That way it is easier for me now to know what to put on my plate. And yes, planning is a life and time savior for those who do not like frozen/microwaved meals!
  2. Hey! I am on my day 18 but I have a question regarding the meal template. Sometimes I am not 100% sure about the protein, specifically for meats. For example, I usually buy chicken breasts and eat one for lunch/dinner. However, I understand that I could have a palm size and a little more, which could be considered the whole breast. But is this "little more" only for people who are usually more active than others? If I only eat my "palm size" I may have some chicken leftovers. I would really appreciate if you could give me some feedback regarding my dinner meal portion. It's chicken cacciatore (from the Whole30 book recipe) with half avocado and cauliflower rice. The chicken breast is sliced in 3 parts. Sometimes I feel like I eat too much but I do get satiated. I am just a little bit concerned if I should fix the meal template portions? Thanks!

    Sunday Brunch Out

    Thank you for your suggestions! I had never called a restaurant beforehand, but today I did and oh boy, do they use sugar, milk and vegetables oils! Though they offered to make scramble eggs on olive oil/coconut oil for me, so I could mix it with fresh vegetables and fruits that they offer on that day. I won't risk it on the meatballs, bacon or fruit juice as they mentioned they got it pre-made. Eating healthy is definitely a tough task. It's gonna be funny (and tough) to see all my friends eating their waffles. Thanks again!
  4. My friends and I are going to have brunch at this place this weekend. I have checked the menu online to see if they have some whole30 compliant foods, and even though they do, such as eggs and fruits, I am still not sure about the bacon and meatballs because I do not know if they have any added sugars and what kind of cooking fat they are using. I am on my 3rd week of my first whole30 and I feel like I am doing very well and following the rules. However, this is my first meal outside home and I would like to have some helpful insights of how could I handle this situation. I know I could stick to the eggs and fruits... but hey, since the place also offers bacon and meatballs I kinda feel like having them. Any comments will be most appreciated. Thanks!

    Coconut Milk Inquiry

    Thank you for your help! I totally read that on the book (ingredients part), but I was just a bit confused by the added sugars on the nutritional facts.

    Hi! Thank you for your reply. Here's the info of one that gave me some 'trustworthy' feeling. Kung Markatta Coconut Milk Organic coconut milk. Shake before use, otherwise it can get rid of. Fits Asian food such as curry and vegetable dishes, soups and sauces. ingredients Coconut * (60%), water. Coconut: Fairtrade ingredient from Fairtrade certified producers. Total 100%, excluding water.

  8. Hello dear Whole30ers! I am doing my first whole30. I am currently in Sweden and I find it quite hard to find a Coconut Milk without added sugars. However, the majority declare 0.5 gr or <0.5 gr. I checked some whole30 approved coconut milk such as Thai Kitchen and Whole Foods 365 and they declare at least 1gr. Therefore, the ones available here should be ok to consume? I appreciate your comments. Thanks!
