    Sourcing food in Australia

    besides a few things in the "health" food aisle, our coles only has organic beef, beetroot, carrot and apples and eggs. besides the beef, all ridiculously expensive so I don't even bother! I wish they were better - woollies has a better range I think.
  2. It also lacks in vegetables too - every meal needs to stick to the template with protein, fat and 2-3 cups of vegies.

    There is no sugar gram per serve recommendation - kombucha is ok as long as no sugar is added after fermentation. If you're worried abou it, go for one without fruit/juice added

    All vinegars are ok, with the exception of malt vinegar. Naturally occurring sulphites are fine - this is normally stated on the label.

    Struggling with the morning routine

    PreWO should be fat and protein, but it sounds like you'd be working out later? You could maybe have both meal 1 and a preWO. There are plenty of things that could be eaten on the run if that's what you need to do (although I second the suggestion to sit down to eat - coming from someone who used to eat on the run constantly, making the effort to sit down and eat mindfully has many benefits!) Meatballs, chicken nuggets, lamb cutlets, fish cakes/balls could be eaten cold. Take some vegie sticks and a dip (mayo based, avo based) or some nuts and you're set!

    thanks! I will still probably leave it on the shelf...I can't say i'm a huge fan, and the price makes me want it even less!

    Day 18 Still Extreme Fatigue

    Do you have a copy of the meal template? Your meals look heavy on the protein and lacking in fats... Are you actually hungry between meals? If so, if suggest adding more fats to your meals (go with the upper template limit), lowering the protein to fit the template, and piling on the vegies. If you still need a snack, go for a mini meal of protein fats and vegies. Your body is trying to use fat for energy when you eat this way - if you're not giving it enough, it will struggle!

    You can have it, but its probably best to find something without - I can't help with where to find it though, sorry!

    Maltodextrin is out, pure wasabi is ok - check for any extra ingredients!
  10. could you buy a carton of canned coconut milk online? or perhaps go to an area where there's bigger shops (I think I read you lived in the "country") to do a bulk buy? there are plenty available without sulphites or any added nasties! what about olives in jars? again, it might be something you could get at a bigger shop if you wanted to make a trip. in terms of eating - most BF mums seem to eat 4-5 meals a day to support their needs and the needs of their bub. these are actual meals with protein/fat/vegies, not just a snack of nuts/fruit/avo. any vegies will work, and having a variety is good - definitely include the starchy vegies though! they'll help with energy

    Spending way too much $$ on groceries!

    To make the best of what you buy, keep it simple. Have the same meal regularly, you don't need to buy lots of ingredients or produce that may end up sitting in the fridge unused. Get used to weird combos! you could make a big pot of chilli or curry or stew and eat that for dinner or lunch every day. I tend to buy vegies through the week - out fridge isn't big enough to hold more than a few days worth!

    Spending way too much $$ on groceries!

    There isn't really a meal plan per se, but you just need to follow the template. Get yourself your protein, fat sources and plenty of vegies and mix and match! You can do big cook ups of protein so you've got a weeks worth - we do this and use it in lunches for work during the week along with a big salad and our fat. We love eggs and have eggs every breakfast - usually an omelette with lots of vegies, or pre made frittata for "on the run" days. Make 2-3 meals worth when you cook and have leftovers for a couple of meals. Have you got the template, and shopping list?

    I just looked it up - I was curious as i just assumed it was a type of rice. Google tells me it is a grain/ I'd say its not compliant, just like rice/quinoa/wheat etc aren't compliant

    Why not just eat the banana?

    Heston Blumenthal indeed!! I'm pretty sure it's being demonstrated on the MasterChef master class episode tomorrow night You basically turn it lots and lots - about every 15/20 seconds - you can google it, I think there's plenty of explanations on various pages
