    Recommendation for Multi-Vitamins

    Pure Pharma is a good brand:

    Brand of mayonnaise ???

    Mayo fails still make great sauces. I failed at mayo by trying to cut the recipe in half (and the eggs were below the blade) and it was runny. I added hot sauce and it was a delicious saucy topping for some grilled chicken.

    The Official "Can I Have..." Guide to the Whole30

    Yep - a friends mother had questioned the Stevia leaf and I knew it was out, but couldn't give a concise reason why. Just forwarded it to her.
  4. Club soda, Kombucha - those are my favorites.

    Confused - Sulfites in Balsamic Vinegar

    Just read the labels. Icky ingredients can pop up anywhere (like sugar in your salt! Really?) You just need to be aware. There are plenty of compliant balsamics out there.

    Boars head meats

    I was at Publix and had the poor meat slicer read all of the ingredients of the Boar's Head deli meats. None of them were without sugar (to his surprise - he didn't want to check because it's "Crazy to think Organic Turkey Breast would have sugar." I asked nicely and he checked. Sugar in them all. Applegate Farms has a couple that are compliant.

    Calories - do I really not count them???

    It's really hard to overeat the right kind of foods. Try to finish a 32 oz ribeye and a whole plate of broccoli.... but I sure wouldn't have a problem polishing off an entire box of cookies if challenged! The processed, "fake" foods that I ate before this lifestyle (The Las Vegas Strip in Your Mouth as Dallas and Melissa call them) have no brakes. You can keep going long past when you aren't hungry... But real foods trigger a hormonal response that causes you to know when to stop. Not counting calories is THE BEST part (I mean... aside from feeling better, looking better, performing better, and sleeping better - HAHA)

    Can I have Marijuana

    One of the biggest plusses of the Whole30 Program is that satiety signals are reset so you can eat until you're not hungry anymore instead of counting calories (assuming you are eating the correct foods.) Marijuana seems to cause a satiety signal mix up so I would say no... But am excited to see what Melissa has to say!

    Guar gum in coconut milk?

    It's allowed. The ones with guar gum aren't as tasty (IMO) as the ones that are just coconut milk but definitely allowed.

    You know someone is doing a Whole30 when...

    They feel guilty when they lick an envelope.

    You know someone is doing a Whole30 when...

    Thank you for this! They have this conversation with the TJ's cashier (and this was yesterday) Me: do you have Larabars? Cashier: yes, many kinds. Do you want me to hold your place in line while you run over? Me: No. Thank you but I can't have them right now. Cashier: but they're just fruit and nuts Me: I know, but I have an unhealthy psychological relationship with them. They feel like dessert. Cashier: but they're just fruit and nuts
