    hellokatie got a reaction from Jihanna in compliant oil for mayo in Europe   
    thanks a lot for your post. sunflower oil is widely available here and I'll take good care to get high oleic one!

    I personally use high oleic sunflower oil.
    I didn't enjoy any of my mayo attempts that used olive oil (even extra-light) or grapeseed (I know it's not exactly compliant but it was in the house when I started my first round, so I tried it out of desperation, and that mayo was worse than the stuff I made with olive oils). I haven't found an avocado oil that's within my budget, but sunflower oil I can find easily and it's reasonably priced so I can justify getting it.
    It's not the most-preferred oil in terms of Whole30 but high-oleic sunflower and safflower oils have a fat profile similar to extra-virgin olive oil (according to the official Can I Have? guide), and I don't use mayo often enough for me to worry over it. My family enjoys the taste of it, also, which is good because I stopped getting store-bought mayo for them (it just makes sense to only have 1 jar of mayo in the fridge! ).

    Day 11. SO MUCH ENERGY! The energy surge arrived yesterday afternoon and of course I was locked in the house because of ice and snow outside. It's cool. I did some zumba videos, weights, squats. Ate great and on plan. Feeling amazing. No outside program cravings either. Absolutely loving this round of Whole 30. Best thing I did.

    Hey hey!
    week 2, yeah! 
    I must admit that I was kind of sick of the food for the past two days. I didn't really crave something, but I just couldn't eat a salad again. I'd rather not eat anything. I somehow got through it and today the sun is shining again. my favourite whole30 foods I discovered this week were:

    Tuna Salad (Downshiftology)
    Pulled Pork Salad  (Downshiftology) 
    Apple with almond butter
    Egg roll in a bowl.

    This week I'd like to make a chicken soup, I feel like needing it right now. On the menu are also fish curry, another egg roll in a bowl, maybe Zupa Toscana, but I'm not sure I can live with coconut milk instead of cream in a hearty dish and definitely some kind of stew. 

    I already prepped sauce Bolognese (to eat with zoodels or similar), some red cabbage (cooked and raw), sauerkraut, spicy shrimps and zoodels.

    also I must say that I'm sometimes jealous of American convenience-noseasonalveggies thingy, because I can't get half of the ingredients where I come from. I'd kill for a spaghetti squash, but it's only being sold here for a few weeks in autumn. Also riced cauliflower, wow! No one is selling that here - compliant sausages and bacon, compliant sauces - forget it. Rant over.
    you all have a great week!

    hey hey! I started today as well. I'm also from Europe (Vienna, Austria) ;-) it's really hard finding compliant stuff here, so I'll be making my own everything. I enjoy cooking a lot, so this aspect of whole30 shouldn't be a problem.
    what I'm "afraid" of is going to Crossfit fasted, as I work out three times a week at 6 am. it's not a problem now, but I'm curious if I'll mange that on whole30. I'm not very keen on eating something beforehand. anyone working out so early in the morning? how do you do it?

    Congratulations for your next wedding Joanna!
    I'm also starting on February 11, since I have no social commitments scheduled for the following weeks and will be easier to stick to the meals plan.
    For now, I'm trying to figure out what to do with my breakfasts, different from eating eggs :-)
    If you like (and don't mind my grammar or spelling mistakes, since English is not my mother tongue), we can support each other, share recipes, etc.

    Good luck to you!  It has been hard for me to find the compliant bacon and sausage links at times.  Sometime I feel like I am cheating when I use a store-bought compliant condiment.  It is so simple to make it myself.
    Most of the time I am making enough steamed or roasted veggies that I can mix and match different stuff to make it different each day.  But sometimes, I go for the frozen sweet potatoes, canned green beans and Dole fruit cups.

    actually yes... this would be like eating snap or sugar peas where most of what you consume is the shell and not the problematic pea portion itself.  Good find!
