We are happy you are here, and think you will find this new format ideal for questions, answers and support during your Whole30 program and beyond. Below are the general rules for this forum. We ask that you read them through at least once, and abide by them at all times.
General Forum Rules
We run a family-friendly show around here. Please keep language, links and images PG-13; no "f-bombs," links to adult content or any other such things you would not say, read or watch around your kids
Keep discussions respectful. We appreciate differing opinions and relish open dialogue, but we ask that you maintain your temper and your respect for others at all times.
Do not spam or grossly self-promote in these forums. If you have a blog to share, by all means, link to it in your signature. If you wrote an article appropriate to a particular topic, go ahead and let us know. But keep it tasteful, and please do not use this venue to drum up business for your goods or services.
Respect the Copyright!
Do not post recipes, articles, excerpts, or images from copyrighted materials. That means no copying recipes from The Whole30 or Well Fed into a post, no posting entire paragraphs from It Starts With Food, or posting links to PDFs of e-books you've purchased. These posts violate people's copyright (which is illegal), and it's just a generally disrespectful thing to do. If the item in question is posted freely online, you may copy the recipe or an excerpt from the post, but ONLY IF you provide a link back to the originating website.
Posts found to be in violation of these rules will be immediately deleted, and the poster will be warned. Repeat offenders will be banned from the forum. We take this seriously, so please respect people's hard work and original material.
Before you submit a new question, SEARCH! We aim to keep forum material as streamlined as possible, and chances are your question has been asked (and answered) before.
Do not cross-post across categories. Please choose the best category for your query, and post only once.
Stay on topic! This forum is currently only for Whole30-related topics.
Again, do not post, upload or attach copyright-infringing material which you are not free to redistribute (subject to the licensing terms of the specific item).
If you are found to be in violation of these rules, you will either be warned or banned. A ban of your user account may either be temporary or permanent. The administrators and moderators also have the right to edit, delete, move or close any thread or post as they see necessary, without prior warning.
Use a descriptive topic name, so we can answer your questions faster and more effectively. ("Help!" tells us nothing - "Headaches on Day 2, is this normal?" gives us a clearer picture of your issue.)
Do not ask for (or expect) personal consulting via this forum. Should we feel your request requires more attention than we can provide in this setting, we will direct you to our consulting options.
Welcome new members. Help new folks "learn the ropes" about how to find information and resources, and how to get involved in our Whole30 community.
Thank you for your support, and best of luck on your Whole30 program.
One of my fave seasonings is "Spike" i looked at the ingredients and 2 soy items are listed; I know soy is not a part of the whole30 however because it's part of a powder seasoning and most likely a minimal amount I wasn't 100% sure if it was okay to use during my 30. okay or not??
Ingredients: Salt crystals (earth and sea), nutritional yeast, hydrolyzed soy protein (NO ADDED MSG), mellow toasted onion, onion powder, orange powder, soy granules, celery leaf powder, celery root powder, garlic powder, dill, kelp, Indian curry, horseradish, ripe white pepper, orange and lemon peel, summer savory, mustard flour, sweet green and red bell peppers, parsley flakes, tarragon, rosehips, safflower, mushroom powder, parsley powder, spinach powder, tomato powder, sweet paprika, celery seed ground, cayenne pepper, plus a delightful herbal bouquet of the best oregano, sweet basil, marjoram, rosemary and thyme.
