    The meal template gives you slightly vague information on purpose. Do your best to estimate the palm-size and thumb-sizes. Make sure you have at least 1 cup of veggies, but more like 3 is better, especially if they are salad greens. After that, try to use your own hunger to guide you. If you are hungry between these meals you need more of something, likely more protein or fat but more vegetables is rarely a bad thing. good luck!

    Ok, so if we are sharing....picked up this lovely jar tonight, now to be patient and wait a week so my batches can be properly staggered (oolong batch started yesterday, cherry/ginger and strawberry/lime on second ferment). Cat for scale.

    Hello kombucha friends! I made my first scoby from GT's plain and it worked just fine. BUT if yours doesn't work, kb, I'm happy to share . Oh and for the record: fav flavor so far is blueberry/lemon/ginger...although blackberry/lemon was pretty awesome.

    I've done it by getting fresh ginger juice from the juice bar at the co-op but sometimes I cheat a little bit (don't tell the whole30 police!) and use prepackaged ginger/lemon/honey stuff (ginger soother from ginger people). One small bottle split evenly over about 2 gallons of kombucha. Add in whatever berries. Close it up tight and leave it on the counter for up to a week before refrigerating. I used to do 48-hours for second ferment, but it really does get better around day 5 or so. From what I'm told, less air (fill to tippy top), more time, and more sugar during second ferment means bubbles might be possible? I never seem to get bubbles.

    guys, sorry to be a rain on your parade person here...but: the Califa Farms Coffee Creamer is only just barely compliant. It's not a great choice on a plan where we want you to be eating real foods. Have you tried regular coconut milk or almond milk in your coffee? maybe one without six different additives?
     
    you get to decide where to draw the line with this one, just know there are better choices you could make when you are ready.

    I can relate to this person, actually. I love the Whole30 because of the science and just plain logic behind it. I'm not so much a fan of "eating like a caveman (or dinosaur or grock or what have you)" as a rationale for my choices, so yeah. I might take advantage of the paleo label to narrow down a recipe search, but paleo isn't what I'm doing; the Whole30 is.

    Whole30 info: Palm kernel oil is missing all the nutrition from red palm oil (unrefined) and is a white colour.
     
    Other concerns:
    Palm oil is a $US40 billion dollar industry worldwide, so there are some business practices that may make you not want to purchase products containing palm oil. Personally I find it something I'm not ethically comfortable with, regulation on production doesn't seem to be tough enough to make a difference and food labelling is pretty dodgy around the world when it comes to palm oil (in some countries it's entirely hidden under "vegetable oil" to avoid the eye of angry consumers).
     
    http://www.orangutan.org.au/palm-oil these guys are critically endangered, so palm oil and anything containing palm oil is off my shopping list until that changes. Industries change fastest with financial incentive If you ever get a chance to see one of these wonders in a zoo, please do. They use tools, are the only non-human species capable of "calculated reciprocity" and interact with those who come to visit them very much like humans do.
     
    We no longer trade in ivory to protect elephants which are endangered, but palm oil is a real threat to a critically endangered species which will likely become extinct in within our lifetimes. We're quite close to Indonesia here in Australia so palm oil is a hot topic here.

    yes. palm oil and palm fruit oil are the same, and both are fine as far as the whole30 is concerned. I have not seen anywhere that palm kernel oil is explicitly prohibited on the whole30, but it is a seed oil, so I would limit it.
