    Those are just suggestions. The best thing to do is introduce something you might actually want to eat again though be careful that there are no cross contaminating ingredients. I did sourdough bread for mine because that was what I was interested in.

    We as moderators see a lot of confusion around here on what constitutes a serving of eggs when eggs are your primary protein source. We tell you as many as you can hold in your hand without dropping but I still don't think people actually try this. So I thought I'd post a visual for you folks. It would be fun if other people added their own pictures too. Try the experiment.

    You most certainly can. Also remember that you can't always trust your hunger signals while things adjust. But if you just can't eat anymore saving it and eating it as a mini meal is a great option. Your body will adjust.

    You're not lazy at all, you're adapting to a new system of preparation.  It gets easier and you get faster!

    Try your next breakfast without the added fat and see how you do.  If you're hungry before 4-5 hours is up you'll have your answer!

    Well, stepping on the scale is a rule, so if you want to be able to say you truly did a Whole30, following all the rules...
     
    But, having said that, here is the guidance for determining if you need a restart.

    Purpleish?  Brown stringy things are yeast (I believe).  Could the berry juice have darkened them?

    I think that a scoby built on an herbal tea is not as healthy as one grown on conventional tea so it's possible that she succumbed because she didn't have the right pH? Healthy scobies need the tannins in black tea (or green, oolong etc) to thrive. Maybe try growing your own using plain GT kombucha and some sweet black tea? 1 cup of heated water, 1 teabag, 1/8 cup of sugar added to the bottle of GTs plain and then set with a cloth on top for about 14 days.

    These are jumbos (I am a big guy at 6")...   In all seriousness, I tend to keep it to 3-4/serving and mix it up. This mornings breakfast was 3 eggs scrambled with 2 beef breakfast sausages.

    Yes that is your serving. You are better off getting a variety of protein over your meals because different protein sources have different benefits, but I've been known to eat 4 eggs at multiple meals in a day when I'm pressed for time. I don't know the answer on 2 palm-sized portions of eggs. Because eggs have a higher fat content they are quite filling...when I eat them I generally don't need more than 4 but if I eat chicken I often need 1.5-2 palm sized portions. Good questions maybe another mod will chime in too.

    Well you are allowed to have 2 servings of protein if you need it. This would be a question for the top dogs in all seriousness. I'd be scared I'd drop one of my very expensive pastured eggs trying to build a pyramid. And my floors are not really clean right now...and I would scoop it up and eat it anyway.

    I am! I think one more would tip the ship. I remember reading in something Melissa posted that Dallas can hold more eggs when he is very hungry though.

    Those five eggs looks like a stretch for your hand to me. Remember, it's the eggs you can hold without dropping them as the guideline. 
     
    Start with eating at least 3 eggs for your protein serving, along with 1-3 cups of veggies and the appropriate amount of fat per the recommended meal template. If your meal doesn't keep you satiated for at least 4-5 hours, add an egg the next time around.

    Kirkor- Correct, the new reintroduction schedule is phrased in terms of least to most likely to cause issues. BUT, order can change based on personal context and preferences. If you have a preferred order, or want to skip foods on our list, please feel free. Our schedule is our best recommendation, but variation is not a deal breaker.

    If vegetable oil is listed as an ingredient I would not use that mustard. I've never heard of such a thing. I'm sure you can find a mustard without it.

    I love eggs and eat them almost every single morning. The other day I ran out - gasp! - and only had two so I had to supplement. I used my normal sauteed veggies, the two eggs, and tossed some turkey on top. It was actually incredibly tasty. The only one I can't get behind (yet) is fish at breakfast time.
     
    There's so much you can do with eggs. Have you tried switching it up? Poaching, over easy (or medium or hard), scrambled, hard boiled, steamed, omelet, frittata, bake them in a pepper... When I get tired of one method I'll switch to another, swap out my veggies and seasonings, and it's like a completely different meal.
