    Babsie95 got a reaction from MMC in Time Elapsed for Ill Effects   
    reactions will vary person to person.  I would love it if there were a clear answer to this.  In my experience effects can happen a day or so later.  You can always double check it.  Eat whole 30 a few days till you feel good again and then retest the non gluten grains. If you have the same result in the morning then you likely have your answer :-)

    It doesn't have to be complicated. Eat grilled/roasted meats and veggies, eggs and healthy fat. You don't have to use recipes simply make food. Use spices to switch things up. It can be expensive and complicated but doesn't have to be. Good luck. I'm sure you will do great

    Babsie95 reacted to lynnd92000 in Crabcakes   
    So excited to create a recipe that allows my favorite meal and keeps me compliant! I baked two potatoes and scooped out the insides to use in place of flour/cornmeal. Mixed crab meat with potatoes, chopped red peppers, chives, egg, old bay, and toasted almond slivers for crunch. Made patties and browned in ghee, then set in oven. Served with the whole30 tartar sauce over frisee. Perfection! Actually better than the "original" because the potatoes stay moist. Two baked potatoes with equal crab makes six crabcakes.

    Babsie95 reacted to SugarcubeOD in Cold Brew at Home   
    I was asked on another thread about my cold brew system so I thought I'd open a thread here so that if anyone wants to make their own cold brew, this might be helpful.
    There are loads and loads of instructions and 'recipes' online but they're mostly written by snobby coffee companies and some are a bit contradictory so here's what I do.
    I use a 1 gallon Ball Mason jar (purchased from Target https://www.target.com/p/1-gallon-collector-s-mason-jar-clear-ball-174/-/A-12794404#lnk=sametab)
    2 cups of Trader Joe Dark Roast coffee and fill the mason to the shoulder of the jar with cold water... stir as you're filling it up so the grounds get saturated.  
    Pop the lid on and stick it in the fridge for 24 hours, stirring once or twice when you remember (or more.. sometimes I leave it for a couple days and it never gets bitter or sour).
    When it's done brewing, strain it into a large pitcher (I use a random plastic juice jug I found at a discount store for $5) through a sieve lined with four layers of cheese cloth.
    Compost the grounds or spread them in your garden if you're lucky enough to have a garden
     
    To serve, I put 1 scoop of Great Lakes Hydrolysate Collagen (available here for both Canada and US), ice cubes and coconut milk into a mason jar and then pour in the coffee and voila!  It's good, cheap and cheerful

    Babsie95 got a reaction from misshannah in Animal fats   
    As I understand it animal fats are great (as long as the source is healthy) just as long as the amount of fat in a meal is enough in total. The main thing to look for would be if your meals are keeping you full 4-5 hours. I would think that you could probably enjoy your chicken skin and some avocado too.  Maybe others will weigh in as well :-)

    Babsie95 got a reaction from ladyshanny in SODIUM DEHYDROACETATE - PURPLE SWEET POTATO VERMICELLI   
    Spiralized veggies are awesome and compliant. If it is simply the veggie cut into that shape.  The difference is when they take the sweet potato (or other veggie) and process it down and then "reformat" it to become noodles.  In this form it is a highly processed food that is far from its natural state and made specifically to feel, taste like, and replace pasta

    Babsie95 got a reaction from longhornval in Favorite Steak Rubs   
    I mix up a cocoa coffee salt.  A whole batch is I/2 cup fine sea salt, I heaping tbs cocoa powder and 1 heaping tbs fine ground coffee or espresso ( is use on k cup of whatever I have) The batch will last a long time. I just sprinkle it liberally on both sides of the steak and sear it.  My husband HATES coffee in any form but once he tasted steak with this he will not eat it any other way. He no longer uses steak sauce and will not eat steak in a restaurant.  It does not taste like coffee or chocolate. Somehow it just enhances the "meat" flavor

    in a pinch you could take a portion and then freeze it for after your whole 30. That way you don't worry about feeling rude and you know it is there for later.
    just a thought

    I just made pineapple chicken overnight in the crockpot
    ITs simple you just put raw chicken in the crock and salt it a bit
    mix a can of pineapple with some garlic, coconut aminos, and mustard (two or three tablespoons each) pour it over chicken and that's it...

    whole 30 avoids added sulfites not ones that are naturally occurring. So you might need to avoid some things that would be compliant for others such as vinegars that contain natural sulfites

    Babsie95 got a reaction from Nedster7 in Excited! Starting March 20th   
    When I did my last round I called it 60 so I would not have a reason to skimp on reintros....my first round I didn't do well at all cause I didn't get my mind around the time it would take. So this last time I just banked on 60 days and it didn't take quite that long but the mind trick of planning too much rather than potentially not enough worked for me...

    was it on the nutrition label? or the ingredient list?
    If it is in the ingredients that means its added and is a no-go
    If it is simply on the nutrition facts it is simply naturally occurring sugar in the food and is fine
