    Whole 30 and Arthritis

    Following Whole30 is not a cure for arthritis although some people have said it has helped them. When I did my first Whole30, I had less flare-ups but I still had them. But, I was also eating nightshades. People who have found relief may have decreased or omitted nightshades unintentionally. This time around, I have noticed my flare-ups lessen when I don't eat them. If you want more info about nightshades, google Autoimmune Protocol (AIP) or go to http://www.thepaleomom.com/autoimmunity/the-autoimmune-protocol for more info on how nightshades can affect your immune system.

    Boar's Head Everroast Chicken

    Boar's Head does have an All Natural line of products but the only one that I found to be compliant is the Roast Beef. Whatever you do, don't ask the deli person if there is any sugar in a product. More than likely, they will look at the nutritional information and see "0" for Sugars and say, "No." They will not look at the ingredients unless you tell them specifically.

    Starbucks caramel brewed coffee

    just my opinion, but if "Caramel" is in the name of the product, I would stay away....wouldn't even bother with the ingredients.

    Nomato sauce

    That sounds delish Vian! Did you make it or buy it?
  5. If you like toasted nori seaweed, you can cut them up into squares to use as "taco" shells to hold everything....I just call them sushi tacos!

    Sugar Dragon help

    Can you post your meals on a typical day so maybe a moderator or a seasoned Whole30-er can see where/if adjustments need to be made? What you are eating, not just how much, cna make a difference.

    Well Fed 1 or 2?

    I agree with jent103. A lot of the Well Fed recipes are on her site. Well Fed 2 is great, especially the banger, balls, and burgers section!

    September 8th, anyone?

    Hi all! Just started my second Whole30 today! My first one was last year in April and I loved it! A lot of the good habits stuck with me...at least until the beginning of this summer when I started traveling more than usual. Needless to say, I have lots to work on to get back to my happy place! So excited to see so many new faces!

    Ingredients in coconut milk...

    Do you have any Asian or Indian markets near you? If so, check them out. You can find coconut milk and other products a lot cheaper than in the regular markets...at least that's the case in the US.
  11. I did my first Whole30 in April 2013. In Oct. 2012, I tore my meniscus on top of having little cartilage due to rheumatoid arthritis. My only option was knee replacement (to avoid going in there twice) when I finally went to my orthopedic doctor and couldn't happen until Aug. 2013. When I started W30, my knee hurt every day. On day 8, the knee pain went away! Of course, there was still the pain from little cartilage but not nearly as bad as it was from Oct.-April.

    Egg Muffins - Cooking Spray

    I do the same thing! The cups are sturdy enough that you don't need to use a muffin tin. If you don't have the silicone cups, spread some ghee in the muffin tin "cups".

    Chocolate Chili

    I Chocolate Chili! And it is great for breakfast! The longer it sits, the better the flavor! I only use chicken broth unless I have beef bone broth made. I don't think it matters that much since there are a variety of spices used.

    Living "Whole" for a Whole Year

    That is so awesome! Love the before and after pics and so inspired by your perserverence over the last year!
  15. After reading http://www.subway.com/Nutrition/Files/usProdIngredients.pdf, decide if Subway is really an option for Whole30...or anytime after.
