    Compliant deli meat

    @Robin and @Chris - Thank you!
  3. @Physibeth - Thanks for the input. I am on Day 10 of Whole30 so I am still within my first 2 weeks, I don't feel horrible when I run it's just the thought of not being able to finish my runs or not having the energy to run at all is my only fear

    Compliant deli meat

    I haven't really looked into compliant deli meat until I came across a statement on the "Can I have... forum". I hardly eat deli meat but if I do eat it (before I was on Whole30), I like the FF Roasted Turkey by Wegmans. I am not sure if that is compliant or not. How do I know? Do I ask to read the package? Has anyone found any compliant deli meat?
  5. @Physibeth - Usually your body does not start to burn fat until you are in your 30 minute work out, sometimes my runs are under 30 minutes so in order for me to endure my runs, I need the energy as soon as I start running. So, I really do not get to the 30 minute mark to start burning fat. Which I think that I may need to workout/run longer than 30 minutes. I am just afraid to collapse on my long runs or not being able to continue at all if I do not fuel my body with carbs I typically do not do HR Zones and I am not planning on start doing that. We will see how this pans out for me. Today I am going to run 3-4 miles to get ready for my long run tomorrow and decide if I need to scale back my long run again tomorrow. We'll see!

    Can I have cottonseed oil?

    @Tom, thanks! I found salted dry roasted whole cashews at Wegmans so I bought those and brought them into work. Ingredients are basically organic cashews and salt :-)
  7. I am glad I found this thread!! I am on Day 8 on the Whole30 Program and I also am a distance runner. I most do my long runs on the weekends, between 10-12 miles/week, however, during the week my runs are shorter ranging from 3-4 miles, 2-3X/week this is to be sure that I am prepared and can endure my long runs on the weekends. Last weekend I decided to scale back on my long run because I had not ran in the last 2 weeks due to sickness so I decided to run 6 miles. I usually eat pasta for dinner the night before my long run and then an egg sandwich on a bagel and a banana the morning of and most of the times, I do really well on my long runs. It's just the right fuel amount for my body. Since I was not able to eat all the above last weekend, I ate sweet potatoes with veggies and protein for dinner and then sweet potatoes and scrambled eggs for breakfast. I felt okay, not great and not too bad either during my run. I decided to run at a slower pace (9:20), however, during and at the end of my run my quads were a little sore, of course, it didn't help either with running a huge hill just before the end of my run, but I did it, so I was happy with myself anyway. I also think they were sore because I had not ran for a while. Yesterday, Tuesday, I ran 4 miles and my quads were worse than last Saturday and my pace was 1 minute faster than last Saturday. Prior to running I read the PWO guide and said to eat a small amount of protein and fats and to NOT eat any fruit or carb-dense vegetables to your PWO snack. Well, I had some eggs with veggies and some cashew nuts. I was not extremely tired while running but again my quads were killing me during the run!!! Should I go back to eating sweet potatoes before my runs anyway?? I am so confused with the PWO snacks!!! But again, I cannot not run and need to fuel my body correctly...

    Can I have cottonseed oil?

    I am on Day 8 on the Whole30 and I am pretty determined not to mess up, so far it is going well. I read my ingredients very carefully and if in doubt or do not see an ingredient list, I just do not consume it just to be sure. Anyway, my question is that I've read the official "Can I have..." Guide to Whole30 Program and I do not see cottonseed oil listed anywhere. I see canola oil as yes but reluctantly but not cottonseed oil. Is cottonseed oil part of the vegetable oils? My work has some cashews as snacks and the ingredients are: Cashews, salt and cottonseed oil. I immediately put it back and didn't eat it. Can someone tell me if cottonseed is a semi-compliant food just like canola and vegetable oils?

    Breakfast foods!

    @Physibeth - Thanks for sending me the link to the zucchini soup. I am going to make it tonight, I have all the ingredients at home. BTW, next to the ground black pepper on the ingredient list it says (If you're not on AIP) What does that mean?

    @AllyB - I didn't see the silky ginger zucchini soup on the link you provided. Can you send it to me again, please?

    @GFChris - Thanks! I am on Day 6 and slowly I am discovering that leftover foods are good breakfast foods!

    Breakfast foods!

    @1Maryann - I don't have to eat breakfast?? I don't understand. What do you mean about that? Thank you all for your suggestions... I love leftovers so basically any foods that I would cook for lunch or dinner I can eat at breakfast, which is what I've been basically doing. :-)

    Breakfast foods!

    I am on Day 3 on the Whole30 Challenge and so far I am loving it! I can't believe that I have gone for 3 days without any bread or pasta! I feel that I am fuller and don't feel the need to eat every 2-3 hours since I don't feel hungry. I also don't feel jittery you know like when you are so hungry that you are shaking? I know I've only been on the challenge for 3 days and the results are apparent and I feel good! Does anybody have any breakfast recipes they'd like to share or can direct me to a website with breakfast recipes? So far, I have been having eggs, fruit and sweet potato!

    Canned tuna

    I bought wild planet sardines today and I can't wait to try it. I was looking for tomato sauce and tomato crushed in a can and it had citric acid and other brands had asorbic acid. Are these ingredients okay to have?
  15. mskapaldo

    Don't over think this.

    I added ingredient for asorbic acid or citric acid ok to have?
