    When not on my W30 I've used dates to sweeten things. I take 4 dates put in a small container and cover with just enough boiling water, let them soak for 5 minutes then blitz in a processor. I keep this in the fridge and you can use in coffee, baking etc.. Makes a great substitute for refined or artificial sugar but still quite high in natural sugar so use sparingly and I don't use at all when doing W30

    You can do whatever you want while not on a W30, but under zero circumstances do I believe that soda of any variety makes you anything but LESS healthy. Your call though!
    Personally, I can't stand the taste of it anymore. Sickeningly sweet

    Hi Mamy!
    We really don't make many recommendations on sweeteners. I think we can all agree that they don't make us healthier, and should be consumed in very serious moderation. If you're not having them often, I'd say choose whichever seems the most appropriate at the time

    Went to a health food shop to buy some krill oil. There was normal krill oil in a blue package. And a "for women" version in a sickly pink colour box. I really dislike pink things for women, but I looked at the box to see what they had added to make it better for women.
    Sigh. It was soy Isoflavones.
    I bought the blue box instead.

    Catching up from the last few days ...
    Husband: I'm really not hungry enough for lunch because I haven't done anything today.
    He then ate at least four servings of a check mix thing (loaded with MSG which he knows he can react to) and a bag of Dr. Pepper jelly beans.
    Then there was the lady at the store that was overweight. Her cart had Double Stuffed Oreos and a box of diet cereal.
    Husband: but they cancel each other out!
    A friend of ours, after seeing our cart with a ton of veggies in it: man, she's really strict about your food! I'm going to go get my bachelor food ...
    He then walked to the frozen pizzas while we stocked up on meat.
    Am I the only one whose husband is serious about thinking he will keel over and die without his bread and pasta? He agrees that it worked for me and for his dad, but is convinced he would go into shock and die.

    In my grocery cart: two beautiful bunches of asparagus, ten avos ( on special), six yams, one clamshell each strawberries and blueberries, a bunch of bananas, a red bell pepper.
    One woman: "I want your shopping cart! Such healthy food!" (What I didn't say: "You just need to put stuff like this in your own cart!") Guy ahead of me in checkout line said he was jealous because he wished he could afford food like that. The second one was more sad than crazy. I referred him to look up the Whole30 site and told him how lots of people are finding ways to eat healthy on a budget.
    It seems to me some of the best food deals are in the produce aisle.

    I've heard that one too. Real food is something that isn't chock full of preservatives, unpronounceable chemicals, and ingredients with no clear purpose other than to drive the price up.
    "I could never do that. I can't get up two hours earlier to make breakfast."
    Um...I'm up 15 minutes early, and I'm still making myself scrambled or fried eggs in the morning and reheating sausage and sweet potatoes. I get up a whopping 15 minutes earlier than pre-W30. That's it. And that's so I can make and eat breakfast, but usually I get caught up in the internet (like now) and that eats up any extra time I have. Heck, yesterday I unloaded the dishwasher in my extra time!
