    The crazy things people say

    My favorite is "well what CAN you eat" I say "meat, fish, chicken, fruit and vegetables" Then they don't know what to say.
  2. Meadow, very interesting stuff about the Amish!!
  3. You tell people to bulletproof their tea because you have no milk in the house.

    What A Serving of Eggs Looks Like

    I don't eat eggs at all ever as I am doing the Auto Immune Protocol. I eat a regular meal for breakfast, whatever I would eat at another meal. Steak, chicken fish, fat, salad, a bunch of veggies, yum. Plenty of recipes to be had on Google for Whole 30 breakfasts with no eggs. Enjoy! PS I can hold a whole chicken in one hand.
  5. Meadow I love this and need to memorize it. Also you gave me the idea to have a smoothie - stomach is still killing me and I'm scared to eat :-( Nutrition in 60 Seconds I eat real food – fresh, natural food like meat, vegetables and fruit. I choose foods that are nutrient-dense, with lots of naturally occurring vitamins and minerals, over foods that have more calories but less nutrition. And food quality is important – I’m careful about where my meat, seafood and eggs come from, and buy organic local produce as often as possible. This is not a “diet” – I eat as much as I need to maintain strength, energy, activity levels and a healthy body weight. I aim for well-balanced nutrition, so I eat both animals and a significant amount of plants. I’m not lacking carbohydrates – I just get them from vegetables and fruits instead of bread, cereal or pasta. And my meals are probably higher in fat than you’d imagine, but fat is a healthy source of energy when it comes from high-quality foods like avocado, coconut and grass-fed beef. Eating like this is ideal for maintaining a healthy metabolism and reducing inflammation within the body. It’s good for body composition, energy levels, sleep quality, mental attitude and quality of life. It helps eliminate sugar cravings and reestablishes a healthy relationship with food. It also works to minimize your risk for a whole host of lifestyle diseases and conditions, like diabetes, heart attack, stroke and autoimmune.
  6. Meadow, I am quoting most of that post because it is SO GOOD. And SO MANY miss this SO IMPORTANT message!

    Whole30 approved almond milk?

    Almond milk is compliant if indeed the ONLY ingredients are almonds, water. Because almonds and water are both compliant. So finding it in a store it would be a boutique brand or made by a local juice place most likely. I have found it like that here in LA. Making it yourself is great: The only canned coconut milk that truly has no additives is Natural Value and its hard to find, but you can order online:
  8. Iced herbal tea is delicious. No sweetener of course. My favorite is hibiscus, or "jamaica" tea. This is also the main ingredient in Starbucks Passion Tea. I often buy the Passion Tea myself and make the iced tea. Very refreshing and delicious. Rooibos is also a robust and great tasting tea with no caffeine. Its great with coconut milk or coconut oil added and also tastes wonderful iced. Anyone with candida issues should beware of kombucha - the yeast/fermentation process can feed that beast.
