    What are the ingredients for the ones you're thinking of using? The ones I'm seeing have wheat, so gluten, and they have lentils and soybeans, so legumes, and some other grains. So those wouldn't work. But if you've got some that have different ingredients, they might work, just look at the ingredients and see what's in them.

    Something like kombucha could help - it's really hard to know what will change the situation. The bacteria is great for your gut, no questions asked, but to sharp of a spike in consumption can cause the same problems you're experiencing now. I'd encourage you to give it a try - a couple of ounces per day - along with some foods you know are more calming to the system (sweet potatoes, bananas, unsweetened applesauce).

    RubyVroom reacted to slc_melissa in Are there any Whole30 compliant foods that could cause migraines/headaches?   
    If you haven't been having migraines and then suddenly are and think it's food related, the real test would be to compare what you just ate to what you've been eating before.  Is there anything that you ate recently that you haven't been eating?  Or ate a lot more of?
    But to answer your questions:
    Yes, it could be a stress headache and from not sleeping well.
    Yes, it could be there is a compliant food that doesn't do well with you personally.  For instance, the amount of nuts and almond milk you listed would destroy me.
    If you're really dragging all the time, it could be food related.  I personally do better with more starchy vegetables than you've listed.  I especially make an effort to eat a lot of (specifically cooked) vegetables at breakfast, it really sets my day up well and has an effect on afternoon energy.

    I'm on day 24 and the last week or so I have been super struggling with my moods. One day I was in a rage all day. Yesterday I cried multiple times at work. I'm trying to figure out if I could improve this by eating differently? (I've been eating consistently throughout my 24 days, though the mood problems are getting worse.)
    Here's a typical day of food for me:
    Coffee with ghee and coconut oil 2 eggs Mid-morning:
    Beef broth Lunch:
    Beef Mixed greens Sweet potato Banana Mid-afternoon:
    Kombucha Dinner:
    Chicken breast (cooked in coconut oil) Avocado Plantain (cooked in coconut oil) Broccoli Raspberries I appreciate any tips! I feel like these strange swings of emotions are going to do me in.

    My suspicion is if this is typical menu for you, then you've been undereating for the last 24 days and while it does seem sustainable for a while, it always catches up to you.
    Eggs when they are your sole source of protein are as many as you can hold in one hand without dropping... usually a minimum of 3-4.  There's no veggies in your breakfast, no fat in your lunch and you're probably short on veg there too since greens don't have a ton of volume once chewed down.
    Try making your meals more closely match the template and honestly, I'd replace that fruit with veg until you start feeling better as it may be keeping your sugar cravings alive which also does nothing for our moods...
