    @Roni-Leigh yes, label reading and prep are KEY:) If you have a Costco around you, their Kirkland brand of chicken stock is compliant, and there are several brands of bone broth that are Whole30 applicable as well. I really love the Kettle & Fire bone broth, which I keep on hand for those times I cannot make my own or I run out--and I order them online, especially handy as I live in a rural area. Also, there are several grass-fed beef (and other sustainably-raised animal bones) available online...check out the Whole30 approved product list for ideas, as well as US Wellness Meats (pops up as or Thrive Market (and other suppliers) if you cannot source your beef bones locally. I'm lucky to live in a farming community that has a rich supply of grass-fed products, and the butcher at the nearest town's natural foods market will sell me bones as well. Good luck! Shout out if you need anything:) be well, ~mae

    Hi, @RoyVer! Thanks for the heads up! I agree, the ingredients fit the compliant criteria. Does it taste nice to boot? It's always nice to find compliant products in the market place! be well, ~mae

    Homemade mayo.... safe?

    Hello, @Mary St! Homemade mayo is, in my opinion, the BOMB! So super easy to make and tastes way better than store-bought versions in almost every case--and, you can make a great variety of sauces & dressings from a simple base recipe. I love the easy addition of good fat to my meals! That being said, there's really no way to completely ensure that the eggs you use are uncontaminated (stats say that 1 in 20,000 eggs are contaminated), but there are ways to reduce the likelihood of getting sick from eating homemade mayo: *Buy refrigerated eggs and keep them refrigerated. Store them inside on the shelves, not in the door as the door is the warmest part of the fridge. *Wash hands and surfaces prior to & after handling raw eggs (You're probably familiar with all this--I just don't want to assume, well, anything!) *Refrigerate products made with raw eggs as soon as you make it or immediately after you eat/serve it. These are all pretty basic rules of thumb, and if you are very concerned about this, try making mayo with coddled eggs. Here's a link as to how to do this if you're not familiar with this way of preparing eggs: The website also has a recipe for homemade mayo, but it is not compliant, so I recommend using 1 whole coddled egg and 2 coddled yolks for a compliant mayo recipe that calls for 2 cups of oil. For the record, in my years of making homemade mayo, I've never had an issue with me or my family getting sick. We make a LOT of mayo at my house, and we always use it up before it turns--most homemade mayo will last a week or more in the fridge. Good luck, and reach out if you have any questions! best, ~mae
  9. Hi, @Mary St! Welcome! Is this your first round of Whole30? You sound super excited, which is awesome! As I am sure you can imagine, staying compliant during the holiday season can be a bit of a challenge (especially if there are family gatherings involved--which can result in pressure!), so I say to you: Prep, prep, prep! And be sure you have a support system, i.e., accountability partner, husband, etc. Shout out if you have any questions or whatever comes up! Will you be keeping a log of your journey? take care, ~mae
  10. @JMB2019, how are you feeling? Did you energy rebound at all? I was curious as to how you've reacted to flu shots in the past--if you've had one? Did you come down with something during this energy loss? Also, what's your sleep cycle like? Had it changed much/at all during the round/leading up to your loss of energy? I hope you're feeling better. Super curious about how this has turned out for you! best, ~mae
