    Mich got a reaction from CaitlinM in Sourcing food in Australia   
    Not sure which post I saw this on but thanks to whoever recommended Aldi for panchetta. Got some on Sunday and used to wrap the outside of some mini quiches. So yummy!

    Thank you for this! I worked a rogue night shift this week (between day 2 and day 3 of my W30) and was having some guilt twinges regarding my every 2 hour egg/meat/coconut milk/veggie 'muffin' - but it allowed me to get through the night without having graham crackers and peanut butter (an ICU staff nutritional staple!). It's not what I do on a normal day, but I survived my shift with my W30 intact so it was a victory. I think we are very hard on ourselves sometimes. I was actually feeling GUILTY about the 'egg muffings' because I felt I was 'snacking'. Then I remembered that we hear a lot about context here. And in that moment (or those 12 hours) I was doing what I had to do to maintain my W30. And I felt better. Yay me!!

    thanks so much for this post! I am on my first whole30 ever (or whole100 if I have my way) and have started to stress out a little bit today. I was actually upset with myself for having 3 pieces of fruit and cashew butter on two different occasions. did I stick to the rules? yes. could my food choices have been better? yes. did I drink diet coke and have cookies for breakfast like I did a week ago? nope. so that is success. I don't want to get discouraged and worry about how I can cook my veggies/meat/whatever.

    Mich reacted to Melissa Hartwig in Can I have Marijuana   
    I'm not really sure how to respond to this. First, as far as pain management goes for serious conditions, I am aware of the uses and benefits of marijuana. If this is something you've talked about with your doctor, I'd certainly support medical use. If you're taking your own pain management into your own hands, well, I can't really help you with that. Do I think 10% - 30% of marijuana users become addicted? The research shows that to be true. Do I think smoking anything (putting smoke into your lungs) makes you less healthy? I do. Do I think there are downstream effects of smoking/ingesting pot that may interfere with other healthy pursuits? Yep. Is it illegal? Still, yes (even in Washington, as far as the federal government is concerned).
    But I can't really tell you what to do in this situation, as I don't understand your chronic pain, and how ingesting this substance might help. Would we ever say marijuana is okay during the Whole30? Hell no. But you're all grown-up people with your own unique contexts and full awareness of the consequences of your actions, and you are free to engage in whatever behaviors you feel are appropriate for your situation.
    Best, Melissa

    By boyfriend mixed some Sherry vinegar, balsamic vinegar, moscatel vinegar and a bunch of salt for my sashimi and it was a wonderful soy sauce substitute.

    Hi MichB- Not sure if you managed to secure any yet, but I was finally sucessful! The website below has them in stock and will deliver. They are in Sydney, but they aren't near me so they actually hand delivered it to my office! But they ship through the Australia Post as well:
    http://www.thecoconutshop.com.au/shop/
    Hope that helps!
    UPDATE: they have coconut sugar in them - I've posted in the "Can I have?" forum to see if this is okay (I am guessing no).

    Maybe a different stir-fry sauce, like a coconut milk or sunbutter based sauce? For example: http://www.theclothesmakethegirl.com/2009/07/21/sunshine-sauce/ (there is a tablespoon of coconut aminos but you could probably just omit and add salt instead)

    I combine 1 can coconut milk and 2 tbsp. red curry paste. It comes out pretty saucy but it's very sweet and delicious.

    You could use a balsamic vinegar as an alternative. The taste is different, but it could work. In some situations, you might use fish sauce. Again, the taste is different, but it could work.
    I like coconut aminos, but actually don't use it very often. I never was big on soy sauce, which is what it replaces so well.
