  1. I'm not sure if this is breakfast, or more of a brunch, since I slept later than usual, but this is what I had for my first meal today: Elvis burger (hamburger patty topped with almond butter, banana, and bacon), collard greens, and sweet potatoes (yes, they were slightly burnt. One of these days I'll learn to set a timer).
  2. This morning was hamburger patties, the last of some tricolore salad I made for the week (thank goodness -- it's good, but getting soggy and I'm tired of it. Next time, I'll only make a half batch), tostones, jicama, tahini dressing, and berry-lemon-ginger kombucha.
  3. One of the most common questions here on the forum is, what can I eat for breakfast? Maybe it's someone used to eating pancakes or pop tarts or just coffee or nothing at all, or maybe it's someone who's been eating eggs and is tired of them or wants to try the AIP protocol that doesn't allow eggs, but most people at some point during a Whole30 wonder about this. I thought maybe we could have a thread about unusual but tasty breakfast options that we could direct people to when they ask.

  7. I use fruit juice a lot, but mostly because I'm too lazy to cut up fruit, it's so much easier to buy a few bottles of juice to keep in the pantry and then they're there when I get around to bottling for my 2F. When you did the blueberries, did you cut them up at all? When I do use berries, I cut them at least in half, and larger things like strawberries I cut into fourths. More surface area exposed in the booch=more flavor, from what I've read. If you figure out the Gingerade thing, please post how you did it. I've given up on recreating any of the GT's flavors, they never turn ou
  8. Many people find it helpful to do a weekly cook up, in which they chop vegetables to last for most of the week. Much easier than chopping them for each meal. Here's a description of how that can work:
  9. Well, stepping on the scale is a rule, so if you want to be able to say you truly did a Whole30, following all the rules... But, having said that, here is the guidance for determining if you need a restart.
  10. If you check the Can I Have list, the rule is, as long as there's no sugar added after the first fermentation, it's okay. Here's the exact quote:
