  1. Need help dining out

    definitely check out the download above but in my experience about the only thing that is typically safe at a Japanese place is the sashimi which is just the sliced raw fish. Even then sometimes it is garnished with something off plan. I have done this successfully but I did take my own coconut aminos and I missed the rice I would have typically eaten with it. But I was able to order and eat something. I suppose you could also get a dry salad or ask if they could steam veggies rather than on the cooktop... but definitely ask all the questions.
  2. I like sauces over mashed potatoes (compliant) kind a like a gravy...
  3. Meal Delivery? Cooked-Concerns

    What were the portion sizes like? I fear having to add to them so much it would kinda lose the point for me anyway
  4. and... cooking fat is often not even counted as most of it stays in the pan. So adding a plated fat is important
  5. Extreme gas

    A simple veggie tip is to roast them. You can roast almost any veggie. Just coat in some sort of complaint oil (you probably won't taste it or even notice it) and spread on a sheet pan and place in oven. Most will roast in about 30 minutes anywhere from 325 to 425. You can mix and match veggies. I love broccoli roasted with olive oil, salt and garlic. White potatoes roast well as do brussel sprouts, carrots, squashes, asparagus. Just about any veggie can be roasted (maybe any) Just a thought. I like to roast several trays at once and then reheat. Sometimes I will also roast a tray of chicken or other protein at the same time too.
  6. Help me make softer meatballs!

    maybe mashed white potato? I know this makes the difference for me in salmon patties... and definitely mix as little/gently as possible. When my husband makes them they are always harder/tougher and he definitely mixes a lot more than I and that's the only difference.
  7. Meal Delivery? Cooked-Concerns

    It does look great but I was just looking for fun and one of the items on the upcoming weeks menu did list quinoa in the ingredients. Just fyi, I think it was the Chile rellenos
  8. Beer brine on turkey

    I think this would make it a no is still beer
  9. Heavy Cream Substitute?

    I would use coconut cream in something like this and I have in other soups with success. That being said I like coconut and am not sensitive to the flavor.
  10. Ningxia Red

    I agree with the other comments as well but in the ingredients you did list there are two that jump out as non compliant anyway stevia and vanilla extract

  12. I can't do this, right?

    Its much less a question of CAN and much more a question of WANT. Ask yourself if you want to do it. If you do then you CAN. However maybe there are reasons you don't WANT to and that is ok its just something you have to look at and make a commitment if you decide you WANT to you may decide you do but need to wait for whatever reason. Its your decision but please know that if I was able to do it anyone CAN do this
  13. 7 Weeks Strong, but something's missing

    sorry but no soy of any kind, including soybean oil is allowed on whole 30. many things can sneak into restaurant food. Butter, dairy, sugar, other sweeteners. You really have to do your research when eating out.
  14. Rice Vinegar

    use google to search just search whatever you are looking for and add whole 30 most times it will send you directly to posts here
