    Is there a reason you're snacking? If you're hungry in the afternoon, perhaps try increasing the size of your lunch, likewise with dinner if you find yourself hungry at night....

    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

    BF mums are supposed to eat more - I'd say you should eat a mini meal as opposed to having a coffee. Perhaps make bigger meals, but put a small portion aside to have later on?
    Butter (ghee? considering we cant have butter) is a lot more calorie dense than coconut cream so you'd need a lot more cream to get the same amount of fat as a smaller amount of butter...there might be other reasons why ghee would keep you feeling full longer...

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

    Earlier this week was my office Thanksgiving pot-luck lunch. Since everyone either brings a desert or pasta dish I clearly could not attend. While leaving the office to go out for lunch I was approached and asked why I wasn't going to the lunch. I told them that I couldn't eat grains, dairy, or sugar. They looked at me weird and then asked "What about those almonds you are eating if you are not eating grains?"
    I politely pointed out that nuts are not grains and then laughed my head off on the elevator ride down to the lobby.

    Our local woolies is terrible, barely has any vegetables (bakery section is 4 times the size of the veggies!)
     
    Our coles still has King Island beef, but my organic chicken has gone and the organic veggie section now seems to just be dates, carrots (sometimes) and white potatoes We seem to have retained organic eggs though.
     
    On the plus side a bunch of places now deliver to me who didn't used to: Victoria Organic Delivery & Organic Angels. Both have lovely organic berries.

    amberino21 reacted to Gabenick2 in Spending way too much $$ on groceries!   
    Before my whole 30 I calculated that we were spending a little over 1,000.00/month eating out for family of 4. This also did not include starbucks nor groceries. We would order out from restaurants several times a week because we are so busy and are gone for the entire day. Since starting the whole 30 I have saved money while buying organic, at first I couldn't believe the amount I was spending on organic eggs but realized I would not hesitate to pull my wallet out for junk food. Mcdonalds meal would cost us around 28.00 for one meal, I can buy 4 lbs of meat for that price and eat for at least 3 days, this has been an eye opener for me.
    I have completed my first whole 30 and my husband decided to do one as well, I am saving money and feeling healthier eating healthier and would never go back to the crappy processed foods. I have learned to cook using a crockpot and we make sure we have enough left overs for extra meals.

    You turn down the office 'free' lunch because it's always some kind of food that you can't eat (and really don't want to....)

    My husband, eating a white tortilla, "this doesn't have wheat.  want one?"  
    Me:  Um, it's a flour tortilla.  Flour is made of wheat.
    DH:  But it doesn't say "wheat tortilla."
    Me: Look at the ingredients list.  What does it say?
    DH:  wheat flour.... oh.

    It also lacks in vegetables too - every meal needs to stick to the template with protein, fat and 2-3 cups of vegies.

    Success! For those wanting a coconut yoghurt, easy recipe for Aussies (adapted from FeedMeRachel's):
     
    1 x can of undrained Ayam Coconut Cream (270ml)
    4 x Dairy Free Inner Health Plus capsules
     
    In a glass jar, put coconut cream, empty 4 capsules into jar (throw out crispy capsule shells), stir madly, put in fridge and patiently wait 2-3 days.
     
    Coconut yoghurt, no sweeteners, no additives, dairy free

    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!

    Do you have a copy of the meal template? Your meals look heavy on the protein and lacking in fats...
    http://whole9life.com/book/ISWF-Meal-Planning-Template.pdf
    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!
