  1. I found these and thought of spreading almond butter on them and having them in the morning with poached eggs. Are they compliant? It is just sliced sweet potatoes that are roasted. Or is that considered bread?
  2. @Lorna from Canada Thank you for wondering I got through Friday, had 2 fried eggs and a banana there as I never had a chance to get groceries. I did try to change my soup up some and used stew meat. I found even browned that I did not like that as much so going back to ground beef. I am trying to Donate or toss many foods that I have that do not meet Whole 30 so temptations are down.
  3. I had to do a couple restarts in Jan and struggled at the end, but am going to do a 2nd whole 30 with Feb 1st start
  4. I have been having rather vivid dreams which is strange as I am on medication to suppress dreams/night terrors. But I would dream I caved and have things I am not supposed to have. Then there would be guilt. I even had the thought today that since on Friday I have to go to the hospital, after fasting, for labs and other appointments at the VA and will be there for hours. I thought That for a few days I break the rules, because the VA's cafeteria is not really on the healthy side, (my nutritionist's words not mine) and I have nothing to take to stave off hunger. I have debated on setting a new
  5. So I am only 5 days into my 2nd restart, I started on the 5th I think then screwed up with a can of tuna (soy) and then a supposedly whole 30 safe jerky (brown sugar). But other than that I have been compliant, though it is still a start over. So I have had urges, especially after the jerky screw up... I still feel drawn to things. Funny story is I had stale Chex cereal and had run out of dog treats so I would give each one piece (They are small dogs). They like them so instead of buying dog biscuits that are expensive vs how many you get I just bought a Family size box of Rice Chex (my lea
  6. @becs thank you very much.
  7. It does make sense. And I will stay away from them as both hot dogs and breakfast sausage were things I ate a lot, but compliant sausage in a meat sauce with never before eaten squash or zucchini noodles I think I can do especially as I kinda loathe zucchini
  8. @Rebecca001 I have to find it but I have a roast pumpkin recipe that I got from a friend in Australia. I just thought of looking for compliant recipes that can use canned pumpkin as that is all that I think is available to me right now. Am debating in my mind if I should add canned pumpkin to my soup recipe that I have been putting together. I do hope that W30 is helping during your period and am sorry that you feel bloated As for sleepiness I have been dealing with that but do not know if from W30 or Diabetes. I am keeping an eye on it and enjoying tea. I miss my wardrobe, I got a n
  9. Was really wanting some jerky so look and found Epic Bars. Now I know not all of them are compliant so I looked for the ones that were and got one of each to try them. I had the venison earlier this afternoon and enjoyed it, then after dinner decided to try the Wagyu beef steak stick. Now I had passed on all with brown or maple sugar in them... but as I was finishing the stick I just happened to look at it and that was when I noticed honey was the second ingredient and I had missed it. So back to Day One... I can do this, I will do this, I just need to be more observant.
  10. I will have to get some spaghetti squash, but I admit I have never had or tried to cook squash, unless you count pumpkin pie. I will have to look up that book thank you. My meat sauce though, funnily enough, is easy to make whole30 compliant as all I change is no Italian sausage. It is just crushed tomatoes, petite diced, tomato sauce and meat (may use venison) and add spices and let cook in the crockpot. I did go searching and found this https://www.wholekitchensink.com/whole30-compliant-sausage/ They show even Whole30 compliant hot dogs and breakfast sausages... I will have to rerea
  11. I have been doing ok. Poaching eggs or making scrambled eggs using olive oil, black pepper, and paprika. And ground beef patties with spicy brown mustard. In the evening usually grilled chicken breast and green beans. Also am doing crockpot soup, diced cabbage, shredded red cabbage, shredded carrots, diced yams (instead of russets), sliced mushrooms, broccoli and cauliflower florets and ground beef then spices. I do have one question, I thought we couldn't have spaghetti or sausage?
  12. First week in and I have to utterly restart because a thought occurred to me. While I can't really change medications I can look at vitamins... and I have been using Centrum Womens... and at the bottom of the bottle: Contains Soy. Ugg... at least my Balsamic Vinaigrette recipe is a success and fantastic
  13. I know this is a year after, but I found one tonight that was rather odd.. I was looking at "Lucini Everyday Balsamic Vinegar of Modena" The picture of the ingredients seemed plain enough It seemed rather straightforward until I happened to scroll down and Raley's just lists the two ingredients and fails to mention Sulfites. I was price checking so looked at Instacart, but they lists it as it also having Caramel Color which is not listed anywhere. Fredmeyer goes even further and along with Caramel Coloring it lists Sulfur Dioxide ( as a Preservative ). Again that is NOWHERE on
  14. Thank You and congratulations on your pregnancy I may have made a goof last night after eating some tuna as I noticed it was in vegetable broth and said there was soy in it. I had rinsed the tuna off but not sure if that negated the soy so I guess today was a restart? I will be getting different Tuna as I like it with Gideon's spicy brown mustard. Debating buying Ghee or attempting to make my own to have with green beans. Will have to source approved Mayo for Broccoli as there is soybean oil and sugar in the jar I have >.> One thing I wonder is about AHA drinks...
  15. This will be my first time and I started today. Part of me wonders if it was wise to do with unallowed food still in the house, but I have to have some control over myself... I have been unable to control my diabetes because I do good then binge and I really need to get ahold of things. I have foods I love that works so am going to concentrate on those, but I am wondering if I give up potatoes, even though they are allowed, if Yams will work in my cabbage soup.
