    Frozen Banana "Ice Cream"

    I tried the frozen banana, nutmeg, cinnamon, and coconut milk ice cream....I guess I was cheating by doing so but it was pretty good. In the morning this week I'm having coconut milk and berries smoothie which I hope complies with the whole30 plan. I added banana today because I wanted it to be a little sweeter...the berries alone are pretty bland or tart.

    Bacon, Bacon, Bacon

    So, I finally found bacon at my local HEB that has no sugar in it. I was so happy about this because almost all bacon and breakfast sausage has sugar in it....even turkey bacon which I hate. HEB brand Hill Country Low Sodium bacon has no sugar and it was less than $3 for a pack. So, not only do you get the low sodium you also get no sugar as well....awesome combo. It actually taste really good too. I was a little nervous. This will probably be the only bacon I buy for now on. I hope this helps anyone who has been having a hard time finding bacon with no sugar added.

    Making Homemade Mayo

    I think that is the probably I had. My bullet is only one speed. I'll try the cake mixer since you can use a slower speed.

    Having a hard time finding Bacon without sugar

    I had this same question. All the bacon I saw at my local store had sugar in it the same for all the breakfast sausage. I decided that I'll just use ground pork or ground turkey in the morning instead. The only probably I had with the turkey is that it's dry but I think its because I let it cook to long in the oven.

    Can I have coconut butter?

    As I was googling for coconut butter I found this website that shows you how to make your own. I'm going to try this first before buying it. It actually seems quite simple to do.

    Making Homemade Mayo

    Can you use a cake mixer? I tried making mayo with my single serve smoothie maker but it wouldn't thicken. I don't really want to buy a hand blender but if I can use cake mixer then I'll do it that way.

    Pre/Post Workout Foods

    Sweet potatoes are the best. I love them more than reg potatoes. My fave recipe is to toss them in olive oil and season with garlic powder, sea salt, and herbs then roast in the oven until they are soft. So, good.

    Can I have coconut butter?

    Any idea on where I can find it? I didn't see it at HEB here in Houston. I guess I should try Whole Foods.

    Can I have coconut butter?

    I saw coconut better some where and I was wonder if that is ok while doing the Whole30? I'm just starting this week for the first time and for the past few days have been trying to come out with meals especially for breakfast that I can create to be successful.
