    Until I googled it, I thought every time I read Yonanas on the threads, it was a typo and it was supposed to say bananas.

    You won't believe how your relationship with food changes. No more obsessing about calories or any other stats. You will have more time to cook fabulous meals.

    I have not been successful at freezing guac. Not sure why. I love my guac but I also love Wholly Guac when my avos are sitting in my kitchen refusing to get ripe. I bust out a little snack pack and life is okay again. :0)

    Percy the formula I use is 4 cups of water to 6 tsp of loose leaf tea (or 6 tea bags). I let it steep for ten minutes. Then I stir in 1 cup of sugar. After dissolving, I add it to 8 more cups of water. Boom..booch food.

    When I realised corn was used to fatten animals, it lost its taste. It fattens us as well.

    Susan W got a reaction from wildwildrose in A QUESTION FOR THE EXPERTS!   
    I am also no expert, but I am on my 3rd Whole 30. Each one has been better than the last. This time, I added better sleep and life in general habits. It's been a great success.
    I don't go off much inbetween W30. When I do, it's for something quite special. Or at least special to me. A cosmo out with my girlfriends, like Johnny, rice with my sushi about every two weeks, if I go home to San Diego and my mom makes her marinated grilled flank steak and brown rice pilaf...I totally partake. This Thanksgiving will be W30, but Christmas won't be. I'll have two very special things that our friends and family make in San Diego for Christmas. I do mine fairly mindfully and with some thought. Gluten and dairy are my two evils, so I really rarely have those. Maybe once a year. I also relax at restaurants and while I usually have a steak or some other hunk of meat and grilled or roasted veggies, I don't grill the server about it. I do make sure I am not getting some unexpected sauce, but if I do, I deal. I find it fun to be on W30 and fun not to be.

    Michelle, if sugar is not a "no brakes, wake up the sugar dragon" for you, then feel free to have ice cream. It just wasn't an appropriate dairy for me and it seems it isn't for a lot of people, but it is within the rules set by Melissa and Dallas.

    OLD BAY® Seasoning is designed to give a characteristic spicy flavor to any food, especially seafood. The taste is spicy with refreshing undertones. The peppers and ginger lend to the spiciness while the bay and cloves help smooth it out and give it a breath menthol. OLD BAY® Seasoning is a blend of celery salt (salt, celery seed), spices (including mustard, red pepper, black pepper, bay [laurel] leaves, cloves, allspice [pimento], ginger, mace, cardamom, and cinnamon), and paprika.

    I am not sure where you read occasional fruit. The book simply states you shouldn't eat it alone and you shouldn't eat so much that it crowds other important items off your plate. Do you have a sugar dragon? I do, so I choose to rarely eat fruit. You don't have to eat any if you don't want to. Many consider one to two servings a day to be reasonable.

    Hopefully some previous gum chewers (I have never been a gum or mint person) will come up with more creative items, but I use (fresh) parsley, lemon peel, mint, cilantro etc. Mostly, I simply keep hydrated with water and brush my teeth.
