    Erinj got a reaction from Samantha Ribeiro in Protein (beef fat)   
    I think the main thing with the fat is the possible toxins that could be in it. But that will also depend on how the meat was sourced. The better the source (grass fed and grass finished) the better the fat will be.

    " you do not need to defend or explain yourself"
    This is a really good point, Erinj. 
    Tonight I made the most incredible meal. It was absolutely lush. So I took a photo of it and posted it on social media. Hardly deprived over here!LOL!
    Here's what I made if you are looking for something new. I shredded a head of purple cabbage, a head of green cabbage, and 4 carrots for the base. Now I have a giant bag of shredded veg to use as a base for more of this recipe or for others. I thought the raw shredded veg was pretty tasty to use in place of the regular salad greens too! I also added a a handful of cashews while I stir fried it and a hard boiled egg on top before serving too! Would also be great with spicy or teryaki chicken if you are not a seafood person.

    I do order my "purse ranch" through Tessamae's or their packets of dressings through Amazon, so for this trip that might be too hard, but for the future:) Like you, I am also OK with just olive oil and salt most of the time, and I think that's what will also be important to remember on this trip.........let good enough be good enough:) Stay compliant, but don't stress over it too much. If you have an Rx bar and a meat stick for breakfast one day (which is not ideal we know) let that be OK for that day, and try to add more veggies when you are eating somewhere where you can! Just stay compliant, you got this. Is there a Chipotle near you? They have an awesome Whole30 bowl!!!

    LOVE the green eggs idea! And for me, leftovers for the win! Leftovers with an egg on it (or not!) always works for me since most of my leftover meals have veggies in them. And then of course, #throwaneggonit

    Definitely try to get to a nearby store if you can to stock up on some essentials to get you through. That will really help! Even being able to eat a little before you go out to your meals  can be helpful so you're not hangry and feeling deprived! It can definitely be challenging to Whole30 while you travel, but also very doable with some preparation and thinking ahead. I am known for carrying around compliant dressings in my purse for situations where there isn't something compliant! Protein, veggies, fat. You can do this!!

    Erinj got a reaction from Pashcool in Tahini   
    I love coconut aminos and also prefer it to soy sauce now, so good! Tahini is also OK and can be a great base for dressings and sauces, just make sure you read the label:)
