    Psyching up for a December W30!

    Right back at you and LadyLisbette, too. Melissa summed it up a short time ago. 'It's not enough just to do the thing'. That's it in a nutshell and not the whole bushel. Unless you reframe everything about food and what it can do to you, dieting the pounds away by remote control will never ever be enough. You have to unravel and unwind yourself. Go back to the very beginning where you tripped and undo every tangled web. A healthy relationship with food begins in the kitchen but transformation happens in the mind.

    Where have all the people gone?

    People still come and go. The half has not been told but I'm here to tell that this is one of the best run forums. You may have tried others but you won't find the same friendly discourse. No, siree. You'll find all kinds of snarkalicious snark and potshots. This place is downright user friendly. Kind. Good will towards others. I see some of my old group from time to time, I've heard some very sad news and some good news. The ebb and flow of life. So long now. The Dude abides.

    Dang Coconut chips

    These are toasted. It's similar to raw nuts vs. roasted and toasted coconut vs. raw-ish. They're going to be sweeter because they're condensed by the toasting process. You probably wouldn't overdo with raw coconut oil which is a better way to get fat into your meals.

    Whole30 Cooking Without Using the Oven

    A Whole 30 usually requires some cooking, no other way around it. Raw vege, could do but if you're washing them, why not throw them on the grill before or after the proteins. Google Grab-N-Go Whole 30's for other tips.

    Flavored drinking apple cider vinegars

    Have you tried Kombucha. Some think it tastes like vinegar, too. You could add ACV to your salad and your salad could have some berries or other fruit mixed in with the greens. Drinking fruit juices is not recommended even though a small amount of fruit juice is allowed for recipes. You can save these fruit drinks for post W30.

    Nightshades and inflammation

    Not everyone has to walk a fine line with FODMAPS or AIP. Some choose to eat the same foods every day with no problems. The downside is missing out on nutrients that different foods provide. The greater the variety the greater bacterial diversity in your gut. Eating tomatoes, coleslaw and a protein at every meal may not heal your gut but on the other hand, fermented cabbage/foods could help. This isn't a weight loss diet but if coffee messes with your cortisol or blood sugar, leave it out. The guidelines cover the bases for the majority of people.
