    Sweet Potato Powder Noodles

    Thanks folks! That's what I thought you would say so good to know my instinct on it was right. I also bought a potato spiral-er and made spiraled sweet potato "noodles" the other night that were really yum. I'll keep this in mind and use these noodles as a very occasional treat when I'm off my Whole30 (3rd one, yay!).

    Sweet Potato Powder Noodles

    I'm assuming this is a "NO" because of SWYPO, but otherwise, I found noodles in the Korean market that have only two ingredients; sweet potato powder, water. I also found similar noodles that have two ingredients; arrowroot powder, water. Are these ok? If not for w30, perhaps just off of w30? Thanks!

    Sour Coconut Milk?

    Mine has definitely gone bad after a week or two in the fridge. I transfer mine from the can to a mason jar. One time I opened the jar and it exploded and hissed at me and had a sour stench and weird bubbles! Yeah! Time to dump it! I also have been putting it in plastic ziplock bags, laying it flat in the freezer so when i need it, it defrosts very quickly in a bowl of warm water. Hope that helps!

    Turned off from food

    I actually started my period the day before my W30 (that was awful) and this 'aversion' was about halfway through for a few days. I am glad to be on day 28 and haven't had this since. I'm guessing it was some psychological aversion because I was daydreaming about eating a very bad sushi roll deep fried in tempura and wanted to just not eat at all.

    Turned off from food

    Just wanted to update that it's day 27 and this weird aversion went away after a few days. I just realized I no longer like shrimp and have been cooking lots of sweet potatoes and lovely grass-fed steaks instead and have been happy as pie! Not sure what this was all about but I struggled through and am happy I did! Renee, I did go out with a friend and enjoyed some hand rolls with salmon avo and coconut aminos Thanks!
  6. Irish Rose, I completely feel you on everything you mentioned as far as frustrations go. I keep having to tell myself this is for good health, and that my annoying my friends and restaurant staff with, "I can't eat that" is really bumming me out. I also wanted to just comment about the nutritionist telling people to eat ham sandwiches and sports drinks! YUCK! I am applying to a holistic nutritional Master's program in the next year. I was on vacation recently and experienced a woman at breakfast, who is a John's Hopkins (one of the top health universities in the States) trained nutritionist advising a man to drink Coke Zero. I wanted so badly to shake her and go, "ARE YOU KIDDING ME"!!! But alas, the only advice I have is go on and get your degree and then advise your future clients with what YOU know is best for them, not what some school teaches you. It saddens me that this is what is being taught as healthy "nutrition", but what we can do is finish our degrees and preach what we need to preach Carry on!
  7. Hi folks! I'm on day 15 on the W30 and have been going through a weird problem: I am so turned off from food! I did a W30 in January and didn't have this issue. I'll get so creative with my meals and then I take a bite or two and I am repulsed. Foods that I used to love or eat without any thought feel like torture to me now. I feel like I'd rather starve than eat anymore. I use plenty of fats and make delicious noms! I just don't know why I am feeling like I can't eat. No, I'm not pregnant. I am not sick either and drink plenty kombucha and water so I think my probiotics are in tune. I haven't really been having cravings for anything but today especially I just want to give up so bad and order some sushi rolls. A typical day for me is: Breakfast - lots of lox with avocado, tomatoes, cukes or 2 eggs with a sausage (from WF). Lunch- leftovers or a hearty salad with some kind of protein, lots of veggies, avo, sweet potatoes olive oil and balsamic Dinner - sauteed shrimp in olive oil, capers, garlic, red peppers with a side of sauteed spinach or a grilled sirloin with a side salad and side of sweet potato hash browns. I feel very full when I eat and am seldom hungry. I found this post from a year ago about my same issue but I feel I'm eating enough, I just get so turned off and force it down http://forum.whole9life.com/topic/1917-turned-off-by-food/ Any suggestions? It's really bumming me out because I know the results after 30 days are great!

    Chipotle Carnitas still compliant?

    Good to know! Last time I did a W30 in January, I read the forums saying carnitas was an ok. Now, it seems it's best to stay away unless it's an emergency meal if I can't get home in time. Thanks everyone for your input!

    Chipotle Carnitas still compliant?

    Thank you, Erin! I enjoyed my salad with Carnitas after all
  10. I've read that carnitas at Chipotle is the only compliant meat for a Whole30. I checked out the website and it says "Sunflower oil" in the ingredients. I know seed oils aren't ideal so am wondering if anyone knows if Chipotle changed the formula since the last time this topic was posted. Here's a link to the ingredients page I'm referring to: http://www.chipotle.com/en-us/menu/ingredients_statement/ingredients_statement.aspx Thanks!!
