    Couple of items: pickles, V8

    Ah good to know, thanks Adagio. I'm walking distance from Harry's and shop there all the time (2x today in fact! LOL). I'll run over tomorrow and see what I can find.

    Couple of items: pickles, V8

    Tom I get your perspective, but I'm gonig to go ahead and include V8 in my plan. I choose to do so for a few reasons: juices are not an issue for me; I don't have the mindset of drinking meal replacements; I don't drink them (as many people do) because I hate veggies and this is the only way for me to get in my veggie fix; and it's not an everyday thing for me. Honestly if the commercial V8 was out due to preservatives, I'd probably just make my own in the juicer and continue to enjoy it. I just enjoy tomato juice and the spiciness of the V8. Thanks for the rec on the pickle brands. I see that you're nearby, so I will look for them in my Publix or Kroger after I finish the jar of Claussen's that I have.

    Couple of items: pickles, V8

    As the title says, I have a question about 2 items. First one: I saw someone recommend using unsweet pickle relish or dill relish in a recipe. The only relish and pickles I can find that don't have sugar or a long list of preservatives are the Clausen ones and they do have sodium benzoate and polysorbate 80. I am suspecting those are a no-no on Whole30? Second one is V8. I know that we're encouraged not to rely on juices and that's fine. I usually have a small snack sized can of spicy V8 in the afternoons. I don't use it as a veggie substitute, just a nice cold spicy snack that's portable. The can I have says all natural vegetable juices and spices (and lists them) and potassium chloride. Does that kill my V8? If so I can just spice up some regular plain tomato juice and deal.

    Bedtime snack or tough it out?

    I have the same question as Gregory. In my reading I didn't see restrictions on when you should eat, just what you should eat. I'm concerned that for some of us who already have emotional or eating issues, feeling guilty about snacks could be counter productive.

    Stevia

    Stevia is no different from honey. It makes perfect sense to me. If you're not allowed honey, then why would you be allowed stevia?
