    Baby Led Weaning

    Yea so mozzerella sticks, the Stoney filed organic yogurt sticks, my daughter loves sliced turkey(lunch meat), Nick's Sticks you have to cut them (We sell them in the Metro Detroit Crunchy Club), but my daughter eats a lot of carbs compared to me. I used to be more worried about it than I am now. Myka likes tuna with a spoon (I don't know if you are using utensils), almond butter on a spoon. PM me if you want any more info.

    Yes there is a blog, a book and Facebook groups. I recommend all, mostly having supportive moms who do BLW is the most helpful. PM me and I can add you to a group on Facebook. I didn't do the book I had great friends and a Lactation consultant who got me started. I think the biggest fear in BLW is true choking, but they can choke (gag) on breakmilk or purees. Soooo there is a great video on a BLW blog. I recommend doing the choking/ CPR certification its liek 2-4 hour class. Sooo worth it. I used it once when she ate a piece of plastic packaging off the floor. OMG I was scared but the training took over she was fine.
  3. @ArtFossil It specifically says at the bottom of the article that all "light" olive oils tested were impure. @kirkor I am concerned that it will be cut with soybean oil, thus totally invaliding a Whole30. @ultrarunnergirl Do you think it tastes avocado-y? It tends to make the mayo a little green?
  4. @Rachel Cantrell Thank you very much, this is what I was looking for.
  5. I still make the mayonnaise from Whole30, but since learning that many olive oils are cut with other oil, I have yet to find an extra light olive oil that is not on the list. Help! http://www.realfoodforlife.com/which-olive-oil-to-buy-the-olive-oil-fraud/ Do you have a brand recommendation?

    Recepie wanted: veggie hashbrowns

    I have a great recipe that have been wanting to share so perfect!! 2 carrots 2 parsnips 1 small to medium sweet potato 1-2 small potatoes I used red ones Shred with grater or food processor, salt and mix. Now I just pat them dry with a paper towel or two, lay them on parchment and shape them into a flat sort of patty then I stack them on parchment paper, on the other until I fill a Tupperware. Then when you freeze them you could peel them off. They don't stick together great, I cook them on high (to thaw as well as cook) in fat of your choice, maybe a egg or some coconut flour would help them stick together better if you care about it a lot. I over salted my last batch and now I just pour the eggs on top of them as they cook. So good!!

    Okay, I don't know if your doctor is older? None of that advice is good. I am part of a big group that does BLW, maybe look for some on facebook, or there a ton of great blogs out there. They can have water at 6 months, the recommendation is less than 4 oz a day, I think you will find it is hard to give your baby 4 ounces a day, - you should still be either nursing or formula until at least a year, if you have already weaned, then there is something called weaning formula, it is very common in Europe. I find that my baby only has pooping issues if I feed her grain and dairy. As long I make sure that she gets fruits and veggies with each meal to the best of my ability, the poop works. Cheers, mom of a 9 month old that has been eating meat off and on since 6 months,

    Starting Whole30 tomorrow (May 19th)

    Thanks! The times seems to be flying by. Other than work being insanely stressful, the food has been really easy. When I come home from work sometimes I am insanely hungry. Today I came home, I ate my lunch that I didn't finish at work, a peach, larabar, coconut oil, and then the dinner that my loving hubby had prepared. I don't know why I was hungry! Strange huh?

    Starting Whole30 tomorrow (May 19th)

    I re-read the part about circadian rhythms and corisol and I think my cortisol is off. My hubby and I are thinking about getting preggers in the next year and I just really want to be as healthy as possible. We are planning on eating as healthy as possible when we are "done." find I can tell if I haven't eaten enough veggies because I feel really off. What do you think is causing the not sleeping and the bloating? For the not sleeping thing for me every light has to be off. I had a little trouble the other night, since this used to be a continual problem for me. I just lay in bed, like i am sleeping and write a pretend book about my favorite subject until I sleep. It has to be dark dark dark. I have had some gas but not much.
