    Where To Go? (and what to eat)

    Ditto with Subway. All their meats contain non-compliant ingredients. You can get a veggie salad but with no banana peppers, jalapenos, or pickles. I found out a lot about Subway after reading their ingredients list: I find that eating out is difficult most of the time. Sometimes I get embarrassed always asking questions about how a food is cooked.

    type one diabetes low blood sugars

    The first time I did the Whole 30, I used bananas but sometimes they make my ears itch. Nowadays, I always have at least 1 cooked sweet potato in the fridge and I use that to raise my blood sugars. But my blood sugars always get dangerously low (40s) before I notice symptoms due to a medication I take that blocks the shakiness as well as sweating symptoms.

    Original Tobasco is also Whole 30 compliant but Franks, imo, has a better flavor.

    Thanksgiving - thinking ahead

    I'm not on the Whole 30 atm, but like others I'm also looking to compliant foods. But I think the protein will be a geese and save the turkey for Christmas. We used to get a Honey-Baked ham but not this year. I want to make a green bean casserole with bacon but it's so hard to find sugar-free bacon and US Wellness Meats is always out.

    Beef Jerky, got marinade?

    Oops, double post. But forgot to add black pepper. A convection oven takes 3-4 hours, while a regular takes 6-8. A food dehydrator takes 3-4 hours.

    Beef Jerky, got marinade?

    Have you considered making your own beef jerky? It's not difficulty and can be made in an oven. I make it with coconut aminos, pure liquid smoke, garlic powder and onion powder. It comes out very flavorful with less sodium.

    Meal Ideas After Surgery

    I am having reconstructive foot surgery tomorrow. I'll be non-weight bearing for six weeks and a total of 3 months with limited mobility. I began freezing meals last month because I didn't want food to be an issue during my recovery. Although I'm now off the Whole 30, all the meals are Paleo with several remaining Whole 30 compliant. Here's what I froze: Paleo Choco Chili (Well Fed) Spicy Coconut Chicken Curry Spaghetti Meat Sauce (adapted from Paleo Slow Cooking) (froze the spaghetti squash separately) Jambalaya Gumbo Cauliflower Rice Baharat Beef Stew Filipino Chicken Adobo Manhattan Clam Chowder (Paleo Slow Cooking) Crockpot Whole Chicken & Gravy (Nom Nom Paleo) Turkey & Chicken Meatloaf (adapted from Everyday Paleo) So there's more ideas for you. Good luck with your surgery and recovery

    Going to see a movie...

    I watched Iron Man 3 last weekend and took a bag of celery & carrots. Plus I took some raw almonds. I thought I'd be tempted to eat popcorn but I wasn't. It smelled good though.

    Claussen Kosher Dill Pickles

    Ok on the Claussen's? Wow, I never knew that. I passed on these pickles last weekend in my lettuce wrapped hamburger. I'll definitely remember this because I'm going another 6 weeks on the Whole 30.

    Sardine Virgin

    I also eat them out of the can. Prior to Paleo, I ate them with rice though. Nowadays, I buy the boneless & skinless sardines in water.

    How many eggs do people eat per day?

    2 to 3 per day: 2 in the morning and sometimes 1 as a post workout food.

    What are you making for dinner tonight?

    Making Whole 30 compliant Paleo chicken and shrimp gumbo tonight. Lots of prep work for this one.

    Sugar-Free Bacon Find

    The only sugar free uncured bacon I've found is by US Wellness Meats which has a Whole 30 stamp of approval.

    Whole30/Paleo and DDP Yoga

    Hi I'm a newbie here. I am 95 to 99% Paleo and I have been using DDP Yoga for almost 3 months. But in May I am doing the Whole 30 which means I just need to make a few changes to the way I eat. DDP Yoga is great as I needed an exercise program that was low impact due to foot problems. I do other exercises as well, again all low impact due to my feet but the focus is DDP Yoga. If you have any questions, feel free to ask.
