  1. I agree with Shannon. This is not the same book. It Starts with Food by Dallas and Melissa Hartwig is the one you are looking for. It has so much science behind why Whole30, all written in easy-to-understand terms!
  2. and another question....canned bean sprouts?? They have ascorbic acid and citric acid. I can't find fresh bean sprouts from the stores I do grocery pick-up with.
  3. Is there a brand of shirataki noodles that is Whole30 compatible? I am hoping to try pad thai. I have zucchini that I can make into zoodles. Just wondered of the shirataki noodles were an option? I've never had them before.
  4. Hi! I just started yesterday. This is my 3rd, although I have a few Whole-not-quite-30s under my belt, too. I don’t know if they have updated the testimonials in newer editions of It Starts With Food, but in the original edition, they used my testimony at the head of chapter 7.

Since we are not supposed to eat snacks in between meals, I wonder if putting calories and protein in my coffee is really a no-no?? The ingredients are homemade cashew milk (raw cashews and water), cinnamon, ginger, cloves, compliant canned coconut milk, and plain pumpkin puree. I realize that all of the ingredients are comp
  6. Hi, all! I'm so glad to be back at a Whole 30! This is my third, and the beginning of a big shift in my life as a whole! I have signed up for classes to become an elite personal trainer and life coach, and hope to become a Whole30 coach as well! My first Whole30 was back before It Starts with Food, and it was so transformative for me that Dallas and Melissa included my testimony in chapter 7 of that book! Since then I have had so very many life changes, including adoption, divorce, and all that entails. For several years I have wallowed in the stuck-ness of what is hard in my life, and my
