    Britishgal got a reaction from praxisproject in What A Serving of Eggs Looks Like   
    I always add a fat to my meals...be it eggs, steak or salmon. Maybe because I'm obsessed with homemade mayo Honestly though I feel better health wise and fuller for longer with more fat in my diet

    When I first started whole30 I was convinced from reading that I had to have coconut oil and other things. And you don't really. My jar of coconut oil is now used for my face because I never liked using it to cook. I have always cooked with olive oil and butter so clarifying butter and carrying on with my oil made more sense.
    Look at what you cook now and base your cooking on those with whole30 twists. It'll be simpler, cheaper and as you know you like those types of foods you are far more likely to stick to it
    Oh and I second jmcbn on the no prepackaging...I am slightly obsessed with reducing waste so it kills two birds with one stone

    My mother asked me this morning if I was having my cholesterol checked...apparently now I'm not able to eat wheat my cholesterol must be soaring (I haven't told her about the ghee, the homemade Mayo or that I don't eat other grains either!)
    As if I don't have enough health wise to worry about just how...and no, I'm not having it checked...

    My mother told me this afternoon that food allergies are just a fashionable thing to have, like autism
    I have aspergers...and a wheat allergy.

    I have a family reunion next summer.   A relative asked me if I'll be showing off..not eating what they do.   Really?  Really?   
    I have relatives who prefer it when everyone is eating unhealthy foods. It enables their habits.

    I watched this last week and it made me so very sad. those children made me so frustrated and the school meal meal bit floored me ;(
    I too have wanted to scream at labels, this week it was "100%" beef burgers with sugar and wheat flour on the label (so not 100% beef then...huh?)

    I tried the intermittent fasting as it is touted here in the UK.
    I'm quite used to going without food but the knowledge I could eat what I wanted the next day made me want things I've never really eaten...I remember I had waffles and syrup for breakfast. I've never had waffles or syrup for breakfast in my life!
    It was too much like a freakish roundabout for me
