    trezkholl0806 got a reaction from LaurenDulin in Coconut flour   
    I was wondering the same thing... Don't know what to buy, if any. Arrowroot, coconut, almond flour... what are the differences? What can they be used for on W30?

    This recipe is AWESOME... very much compliant and it tastes so good. I cook some up every week! I normally make it with ground beef because it's more readily available to me than pork, but the pork tastes very good as well. Make sure not to skip any of the ingredients and make sure to measure everything out! For spicy, I would add crushed red pepper flakes. Enjoy! (Also, I haven't formed them into balls or patties as the recipe suggests - I normally just toss the ingredients in while or immediately after browning the meat in a skillet)

    I adore a nice fizzy glass of sparkling water with fresh lime wedge, or a nice hot cup of Rooibos tea. I savor it as a little treat in my mind. It really works for me.

    I try to figure out how many eggs are in each, and then eat either three eggs' worth, or if there's a fairly substantial amount of meat in it too, maybe just two eggs' worth. (Three whole eggs is how many I can hold in my hand, which is what the template says is a serving, that's where I came up with that.  So if your serving based on that would be four eggs, adjust accordingly.)

    There was a great recipe on here of a sweet potato crusted quiche. I made it this week and it was very good. It takes some prep prior but I got 4-5 M1's out of it. Here goes...
    2med sweet potatoes shredded
    1package chopped mushrooms
    1package frozen spinach, thawed and dried well
    1onion sliced
    1dozen eggs
    2T coconut milk
    S&P to taste
    Coconut oil
    1c broth
    Sautéed onions and mushrooms in coconut oil until browned and start to soften, add broth and simmer until tender and pan is dry. Set aside. Fry sweet potatoes until browned and crisp in coconut oil, pat into baking dish like a crust. Beat eggs, coconut milk and add seasoning, onions, mushrooms and dried spinach. Pour over crust. Bake 400 for 20-25 min until eggs are set. Allow to cool, slice into individual servings and refrigerate. Grab your container on the way out the door, microwave for about 90 sec. Everything you need in one meal...protein, veggies and fat!

    The sweet potato crusted quiche sounds amazing! (as in, look forward to preparing one this week). 
     
    dovely, I too start my work day (exceedingly) early by normal standards though do not eat upon arrival at work and dreaded trying to eat while driving. I have found a more tasty version of hard boiled eggs to be deviled eggs with homemade mayo, coupled with sliced raw vegetables such as red bell peppers...

    I had a trail marathon last weekend and this is the "gu" I made. It worked well. I also eat dates on my runs. I love them.
     Bake a sweet potatoe or how many you need.
    Mash it up with coconut butter (if you don't have that you can use cocnut oil)
    mash in banana, chia seeds, cinnamon and a dash of salt. Add water if you need.
    Put all of this in to a squeeze tube (you can get them at REI) or double up on a freezer ziplock bag.
     
    I'm 2 weeks into my Whole 30 (vegan) and it's going great. Can't wait for next weekends race!

    Drink plenty of water, add at least 1 sweet potato a day for potassium, maybe a banana if you're not trying to lose much weight. 
     
    I use a foam roller to help stretch. It hurts, but it helps so much. Have you or do you do yoga? I found when I'm doing yoga, i have more flexibility and the less my legs are sore.

    Don't know why you're having a bad day, but I hope it gets better! Have you tried using lettuce as lettuce wraps? I think its Bibb lettuce or butter lettuce that works well.

    Thanks! I was wondering if/why it wasn't in the cookbook We had a compliant dinner at my non-Whole30 friends' house a couple weeks ago, and I made this, with a wedge salad (make your own) platter.... everybody was fighting over the dressing bowl and trying to get the remains with their cucumber slices. I'm surprised someone didn't start licking the bowl. haha.
     
    And - thanks for the suggestion - I am totally going to try drizzling over my plantains tonight. I normally just pan fry the plantains in coconut oil. I bet it would still be good drizzled on top though.

    I haven't done that, but.... I think cabbage stays good for a while in the fridge (uncooked). I bought some, I'm wanting to say a week or two prior, and thought, oh man I didn't cook that yet, I'm sure it's bad. It was fine! I just peeled off the outer edges. hope this helps.

    I finally got around to making the cauliflower rice I have seen people post about and I am so glad I did! I should have made it last week! It is so simple if you have a food processor. I used a whole head and once it was chopped, I put half in a freezer bag to use next week.
    I sautéed onion, carrots, celery, snow peas, broccoli, mushrooms, zucchini in EVOO. I would have added chopped garlic if I had any. Once everything was to desired texture, I added the cauliflower and coconut aminos and stir-fried for about 5 minutes.
    Delish!!!

    I'm with Trez - cabbage keeps awhile, especially red cabbage (though I guess you have the green, or else it wouldn't have gotten confused with the lettuce!).

    trezkholl0806 got a reaction from Physibeth in getting lean and overeating   
    Janey - it is really hard to lose the connection a lot of us have with the scale and the number it says on it. However, you could stay the exact same weight and lose inches, by working out and building muscle/losing fat. Do not stay fixed on the scale number! Focus on how your clothes are fitting and more importantly, how you feel. Muscle takes up less space in our body than fat, so if you look at 1 lb of fat vs. 1 lb of muscle (Google this to see for yourself), the muscle is half the size.... therefore, it is very important to build muscle and that is what makes your body look smaller and have a more toned/tight look.

    trezkholl0806 reacted to BethannM in homemade balsamic vinaigrette with dates in it?   
    I know that dates are Whole30 approved, and I know that balsamic vinaigrette is approved.  But since we're not supposed to have almond flour pancakes (or banana pancakes, or sweet potato pancakes, or any kind of pancake!), etc., is it still in keeping with the spirit of the Whole30 to have a homemade balsamic vinaigrette that has dates in it?  I do. not. like. unsweet. salad. dressings. So does that mean that I have to not use this?  Cause here's the thing. I will end up not eating any salads for my Whole30. And salads are so great for me!  So....what do you think?  Yes?  Or no?  Here's my recipe (it's an Against All Grain makeover):
     
    1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
    5 dates
    2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
    4 teaspoons dried basil
    1/4 teaspoon ground thyme
    3 cloves garlic, peeled
    2/3 cup light olive oil
     
    Everything except the oil goes in the blender, Blend until smooth.  Drizzle olive oil slowly (like making mayonnaise) into running blender to incorporate and emulsify oil.  Makes a thick, creamy dressing. 
     
    Thanks in advance!

    Hello
     
    I'm 5'8 - however I am certain that this is not my healthy weight - I have love handles and saddlebags which are not natural for me to have! My body responds quickly to getting leaner when I am doing the right things, it's the saboutage that's the problem!
     
    You are quite right however, and I actually do not weigh myself generally because it promotes an unhealthy response in me, but I know my clothes are tighter than they were. The 10lbs thing is a guide so you could see I haven't a lot to lose, but in reality I don't care how much I weigh so long as I look and feel good.
     
    I will start another whole 30 tomorrow morning, you have encouraged me to take that step again as I was starting to think about bulletproof coffee again and the madness that lies down that avenue! I have the book and all the emails I kept from the last whole 30 I did.
     
    Just of my idle curiosity, I thought Mark Sisson said that IF/erratic eating patterns are good for the body? Or is the issue that I can't handle the psycholigical madness that ensues so best for me to stay away from that path?
     
    Thanks again, so glad I put this post up!
