  1. Currently accepting suggestions for a better title! I used a lot of the same ingredients that I would use to make regular shrimp scampi, so this is what I'm calling it. I think adding shrimp to this would be weird texture-wise, but who am I to limit you. You don't have to use tomato paste, but if you can, you should; it enhances the flavor. Summer Squash Scampi Serves 3 as a side 1 C cherry tomatoes, halved 3 garlic cloves, minced 1/2 shallot, minced (or 1/3 of a regular white onion) 1 Tbsp tomato paste 1 Tbsp fresh oregano, minced (or 1 tsp drie
  2. Sorry for the TMI! Confused as to what this might be indicating. So, all day today my pee has been a very pale orange. I’m drinking plenty of water and I’m on day 11. Possibly relevant - I think I’ve had heat exhaustion the last two days; when I realized what it was I decided to quit yard work early.

Recently I had sweet potato hash for breakfast (sweet potato + chopped kale + onion) topped with 3 slices of bacon (
  4. Also doing W30 at home! This feels like a great time to do it... pre-quarantine, if I had a sugar craving late at night there was always the option of hopping in the car and getting something... but the quarantine puts another barrier between me and sugar! I'm on day 6. Sugar cravings were intense last night, but I know that in time it will get easier.
  5. Hey all! I'm pretty new to Whole30, and last night I was hungry before bed (and, honestly, it being day 2 I was worried about intense sugar cravings!). I did some googling and came across "Golden Milk Tea" (or tea latte). There are a lot of variations out there on how to make this, but the consistent factors seem to be: almond or coconut milk, herbal tea, tumeric, and cinnamon. The spices were great - tumeric is a must IMO. Here's my very rough recipe - adapt to fit your tea cache and spice cabinet. Golden Milk Tea Latte Serves 2 - 1 can lite coconut milk (could prob
