    Wow - that must have taken you a lot of time.
    To clarify, the 7 day meal plan does not call for plantain chips: it calls for pan-fried plantains.
    Here's a recipe that would work: http://nomnompaleo.com/post/113854926293/fried-green-plantains-patacones-or-tostones
    ETA: the beef brisket recipe is on page 214, so you used the right recipe (there is a side note with it on how to make adjustments for the slow cooker).

    Tina R got a reaction from MeadowLily in My experience with hair loss and how I fixed it.   
    It could also be a lack of iodine. This can be caused by leaky gut and hypothyroid. By the way, the majority of people with hypothyroid actually have Hashimoto. Most doctors don't do anything about hypothyroidism until it's too late. I am talking iodine and will hopefully improve my sleep and my hair loss. The paleo diet should help improve your symptoms especially with added iodine. Some of us need the autoimmune protocol.

    If you like Bengal Spice tea check out Good Earth Spice Tea. I am not sure if it is Whole30 compliant because I don't have any at the moment. If not try it after your whole30. It is similar to bengal spice.

    I have this Bengal Spice herbal tea from Celestial Seasonings. It honestly tastes deliciously sweet that i feel like there must be something amiss.
    Here are the ingredients:
    "Cinnamon, roasted chicory, roasted carob, natural spice and vanilla flavors with other natural flavors, ginger, cardamom, black pepper, cloves and nutmeg." from - http://www.celestialseasonings.com/products/herbal-teas/bengal-spice
    Is this Whole30 compliant?  Or should I avoid because of the "other natural flavors"
