    Veggie sauce/salad dressing

    Ratatouille like mixes are easy to make and it if you like tomato sauce. Pan fry zucchini, peppers, onions and aubergine until very soft, add tomato sauce and cook for a while, good too a day after. I like raw carrots with coconut oil (and salt). For any other salad I use a salt, evoo and vinegar (sometimes red wine vinegar, sometimes balsamic...) or lemon. You can add other things to that, like mustard or tahini... For cauliflower oven baked and lot of spices (cumin, smoked paprika (hot or not), garlic powder, turmeric, powdered nutritional yeast, salt) make a great difference you can pair with mayo, ranc..., also caulirice or broccoli rice.
  2. "lean pork belly"? I've never seen lean, always fat.

    Stupid question: how much does cauliflower taste to cauliflower in this recipe? (I know, it is cauliflower, it have to taste to cauliflower then, but...)

    Protein portions

    I understand that template calls for palm size portions of cooked (not raw) meat, isn't it? Yes, the breakfast issue is hard one... So many years no eating eat makes very difficult to feel any wish to eat in the morning. I'm trying to find info/articles to read, like breakfast & hormones, to get me motivated to eat it.

    Food advice for small kids

    Maybe if you cook meats cut in bite size with veggies (like stir fry, kebab with veggies/salad) and then add a dressing on top, could he eat more meat that way with everything mixed?

    Protein portions

    Many thanks for answering! So is it ok to eat less than palm of protein? I thought it was the very minimum. I have been eating low carb for years, so I use to eat veggies with my meals, and I have been eating keto too (clean) so no used to eat starchy veggies. I have tried to up my protein ratio before, but I am hungry little later, I need lot of fat to not being hungry, or starches (but afraid of them yet since I have being not eating them for long time). I'm trying to find a way to eat something in te morning, but it's very difficult since I have not eaten breakfast since.... I can't remember!!

    Not seeing any NSV so far

    I have just known that 4 oz (cooked weight) is not as big as my palm, so not the very minimum.

    Protein portions

    I have made a chicken salad using boiled chicken breast, I just discovered that raw breast is much more big than boiled, half a chicken breast boiled is quite smaller than my palm, I have always thought that half a chicken breast was enough (and big) portion for a meal. I boiled 4 half (2 whole breast from 2 whole small chickens), weighting around 700 grams raw (around 500 boiled), so each half was around 175 grams, I have always thought that was a big portion. I feel a little messed.
  11. Not in a round. I ate keto for months (low carb for years). I started to consider changing my diet for several reasons to a more W30 and PHD (Paul Jaminet's diet) style. But before, I tried to up my ratio of protein (more lean protein) and I was always starving, it was so crazy. I need a balance between protein / fat or protein / carbs. If I do a very high fat meal like keto, I'm not hungry. But I discover that if I do a meal with less fat (not low fat, just not as high as keto) but more starch, I'm not hungry either. The problem: so many years of low carbing made me afraid of carbs (potatoes, bananas, etc) or eating too much food (because while keto you don't need too much food to be satiated).

    Kirbz's Whole30 Log

    Magnesium?
  13. Not a doctor, neither an expert, what it comes to my mind: could be she is eating less potassium? (I don't think she can be eating more sodium in whole30 than before, but that could be other way). In case you need you can use https://nutritiondata.self.com/tools/nutrient-search to find high potassium foods and other nutrients. Also you can use https://cronometer.com/ and record the foods she eats in an average day now in whole30 and then record another day with the typical foods she has been eaten before, and compare both. Also in this forum: Hope you both can find a path for her.

    What A Serving of Eggs Looks Like

    I can hold easily 4 (quite large), and not so easily 5. But more than 3 plain eggs, seems impossible for me, and if I eat any other protein, I just do 2 eggs plus meat/fish.

    What A Serving of Eggs Looks Like

    I think I'm not able to eat 4-5 eggs in a meal... I'd hate eggs after that. I have never eaten more than 3 in a meal.
