  1. Thank you for all your advice!! I really appreciate it. You're awesome. BTW love wild Zora meals, best backpacking breakfast and i love that the dinners have so much veggies. They've been such a treat backpacking.
  2. So far I have been enjoying whole30. I slipped up during the first week and had to reset my count, not realizing I had eaten dried plantains that had oils not approved (learning pains), and choose to eat a few bites of french fries off my boyfriends plate after we had gotten done with some intense backpacking. But overall I have been staying true. My question in the title refers to my breakfast which i didn't use to eat before but I realized that I love eating breakfast and enjoy making my scramble in the morning. This is what it typically consists of: 2 eggs loads of veggies (u
  3. I started my journey 6/25, today is day 6. I can honestly say I feel pretty good. I was GF before and I think that because of that I am used to finding substitutions for foods and eliminating things from my diet. I had a lot of the pantry items already so shopping was just making sure I had good meats, and I am adding more squash and potatoes than I am used to eating. Plus I really enjoy cooking. I have tried a few recipes on the website and from the cookbook. Just FYI some of the instructions online are lacking steps in the process and the recipes could really use some more spices to add to t
  4. Thank you for all your help! I tried out the instant potatoes backpacking this weekend, made myself a dehydrated type meals and it was pretty good! Happy eating!
  5. Thank you so much for sharing I really appreciate this! I will definitely be using your recommendations.
  6. Hello there! Today is day one for me, and I need some tips/ideas on what foods I can bring backpacking. I basically backpack every weekend at the moment w/ my boyfriend who is training for a through hike on the JMT. Usually I bring dehydrated foods, for the light-weight easily prepared meal option. When you have to carry all your own gear on your back for 6+ miles multiple days in a row you think about these things. I am looking for suggestions on meal ideas with food that won't go bad, that I can pack to take with me. I can easily prepare snacks, olives, bars, nuts, ect... bu
  7. After some much sole searching, receiving some encouraging words on this forum, reading the Whole30-Day Guide book and all the PDF's, cleaning out my pantry, and spending 3 hours at the grocery store I have decided today is my day one! One or two things I have learned: -I have done hard things and this one will not be one of them. -I thought I ate pretty healthy before but never realized that there is sugar in so many foods. I spent so much time at the grocery store reading labels and was SO surprised at the many, many things that have added sugar. Foods I never really even t
  8. First off HAPPY BIRTHDAY! Thank you for the words of encouragement. I decided to start today myself, after 3 hours of grocery shopping yesterday. Good luck to you and have a wonderful day
  9. Have you looked at the premade meals for whole30? There are like 4 platforms that deliver meals and you can find the links on this website. That might be worth a try! I would say if you do go that route try and incorporate a little of one of the foods you don't like each time and start training your tastes to enjoy things you are not used to eating. Did you get a chance to read the book? I was able to download it through my local libraries app and read it on kindle. I am still reading mine but I must says It is incredibly helpful, I am about to start my first round this week. There are a
  10. I'm reading the book, taking notes and have my list of "to do's" in preparation to start but my birthday is July 7th and I'm wondering if I should hold off. I'm already gluten free, so I won't be eating cake but am considering waiting until after. Just looking for inspiration to start sooner. I'm starting this journey because I have digestion issues and am really hoping for the relief this plan can bring. Also, I take a anxiety medication that can upset my stomach if not taken with adequate carbs. Anyone have similar issues and so have success with this plan? Thanks for
