    trezkholl0806 reacted to Nadia B in Kombucha Makers Unite; Where to ask and be answered   
    I am pretty sure that I've read that metal lids are ok as long as they don't touch the liquid. Metal can actually erode. Just note that you will have to puree all the flavoring, so you can strain it without problems. No big deal I guess.
    Susan, does your booch get fizzy after the first ferment? Mine is sparkling even prior bottling. I wonder if tea has anything to do with this. I am actually using plain black from Russian store. Maybe that's the pixie dust Green tea batch will give the answer.
    Now question fro pro-s. What do you do with your new babies? I mean every week I am getting two new offsprings. Even if I keep two as a backup... I can sell them if I find enough booch enthusiasts here. My Dad has the same question. Are you throwing them away? Gasp.
    Btw, for those who haven't seen, I am bragging. Daddy and his new yeastie friend!

    Susan, look at these. I am dying. So flipping expensive for the pretty bottle.

    Maltodextrin is not compliant, as it can contain corn, rice, potato starch, barley or wheat.
     
    US Wellness Meats is a source for compliant bacon.
     
    I believe Applegate Organics has a compliant roast beef: no sugar, carrageenan, etc.

    You watch an old episode of NCIS and when a character turns down the offer of a burger with a "No thanks, I don't eat food I haven't cooked myself", you immediately think Wow, that's how to do a whole 30.
    and I really can't believe I'm doing this but
    When you save up for ages for a new pair of leather boots and then decide to blow the money on a vacuum food saver instead - and you're excited about it

    How about when you know a particular store sells sugar free bacon and you buy it regularly, yet you STILL check it each time just to make sure it hasn't changed

    This thread kicks booty! I laughed out loud more than once. (The "gets mad when sees paleo pancakes marked as Whole30 approved" was my favorite.)
    Maybe me and Melissa Joulwan need to make a video called "Sh*t Whole30 girls say."

    Thank you for this!
    They have this conversation with the TJ's cashier (and this was yesterday)
    Me: do you have Larabars?
    Cashier: yes, many kinds. Do you want me to hold your place in line while you run over?
    Me: No. Thank you but I can't have them right now.
    Cashier: but they're just fruit and nuts
    Me: I know, but I have an unhealthy psychological relationship with them. They feel like dessert.

    Welcome all newcomers, welcome back vets, and for those of you who never left...welcome to this post.
    I just wanted to pop in here and remind you all to take a deep breath before you dive into all the questions about what you can and can't have. The program guidelines are clear on what you can and can't have (grains, dairy, W30 muffins), but things get a little grey when people start talking about what you should and shouldn't have. Please don't over think think this. You don't have to address every food related issue you have, break every bad habit, and shun every food that gives you comfort to succeed with your Whole30. If you need to you can always extend or repeat the process, and things will get better each time you do. My advice to you is this:

    Stick to the rules like they are your port in a storm (really, they will become that).
    Take the Moderators responses seriously (we know what we're talking about).
    Take community members suggestions as advice from those who came before, but keep in mind they are not the rules and not the Mods. Everyone here is well-meaning, and everyone here wants to see you succeed, but everyone here is at a different place in this journey.
    And finally, take comfort in these words (from Melissa Hartwig, on another forum post):

    Here's the thing (and this is an interesting discussion)... there are Whole30 "rules," which are strict, clearly outlined, and very well defined. No grains - and here are all the things we consider grains. No dairy - and here are all the dairy items excluded. No Paleo-fied food choices, and here's what those look like.
    Then, there are Whole30 suggestions for success. They're not part of the official rules, but they're things that we've seen really help (or harm) people as they move through the program. Fruit smoothies for breakfast - not a good idea. Skipping breakfast - not a good idea. Eating every two hours, all day - not a good idea. These things won't necessarily affect your Whole30 results (although they might), but if we can give you additional suggestions that will make your transition and your program easier and more effective, we're going to give them to you.
    Keep Calm and Whole30 On.
