  1. Great idea! Try this: Plant Based General Discussion - Whole30
  2. What do folks find at Trader Joes that fits the PBWhole30 bill??
  3. This is done as per request, you can see it here: Plant Based Recipes - Whole30 Thanks for the great idea!
  4. Hi @hollysmokes, Whole30 HQ here, sorry that we didn't get this answer out to you quicker! Vital Proteins sources it from sodium hyaluronate which is a naturally occurring polysaccharide found in connective tissues such as cartilage. Hope that helps!
  5. Hey! HQ here! We just discussed these egg-life wraps recently and as this brand is just egg with a bit of stabilizer and not egg + almond flour + cassava flour etc, we've determined that they are compatible with the program! We will evaluate other egg-wrap products on a case by case basis as some are definitely not compatible with reference to the pancake rule!

    As of December 16, 2021, MSG is no longer off limits for the Whole30. You can read more here: Is MSG Okay on Whole30? A Change to the Whole30 Rules
  7. Oh, interesting! I'll talk to our IT team about this! @ShannonM816 - I've got this one!
  8. You sure can. Note that they are quite high in starch so the method you describe above is a great use for them!
  9. Interesting, @NSK, thanks for sharing!
  10. I don't know what "BC" is - but you can take whatever normal headache medicine you normally take. We don't want you to suffer.
  11. I had that dull throbbing headache on and off for a little more than the first couple weeks. Generally it's a hormone adjustment side effect - take a headache pill if you need to, you don't have to suffer. Of course I'm not a doctor so if you're concerned, seek out medical advice.
  12. This is all really up to you. Butter would be considered part of a dairy reintro. The sugar in the meats I wouldn't worry about at all. The wine though.............that can be really problematic for some people in a situation similar to yours where there IS a party-type atmosphere and non compliant foods. It lowers inhibitions. I wouldn't personally recommend testing oneself on wine at something like this.
  13. Three meals a day is our best practice recommendation, it's not a rule. In this case the moderator was discussing what to do when the person felt that they couldn't eat enough in one sitting to make it to their next meal. People who are very used to snacking all day sometimes need an adjustment period in order to teach their body to eat three meals/day.
  14. Salad greens you will typically require much more than 3 cups as they get munched down to next to nothing. We always tell people to eat "mixing bowl sized salads" if that is their only veggie. Eggs are as many whole eggs as you can hold in your hand - usually 3-4 is a good start for most people. Why would you want to only use whites for the bulk of the omelette? Starchy veggies are recommended as a fist sized serving once per day to start. More if you are extremely active, on or near your period etc. Less if you are quite sedentary, have weight to lose etc.
  15. No specific suggestions without knowing what you've been eating. Some foods like raw veggies, cruciferous veggies like brocoli and cauliflower, excess nuts, dried fruits and even fizzy waters will cause bloating and cramping.
  16. No, these are alright, it's just butternut squash cut in a crinkle form. It is literally nothing but butternut squash, raw, ready to roast. These are fine.
  17. Do you know why you didn't have your period for 4 months? How different is Whole30 from how you were eating before? There is definitely a hormonal adjustment that comes w/ Whole30 which can result in early, late, second, heavy, light, crampy, flowy periods. Basically it can shake things up in Uterusville for a while.
  18. Ya, I wondered that too when it first came out but I think the point is to literally go SO SLOWLY that you have the opportunity to figure it out. It takes, I think, more self assessment. So you have the cookie and you feel sort of crappy and your excema flares up the next day. So, you decide you probably don't want the cookie next time. Then 2 or 3 weeks later you have ice cream and your exzcema flares up again. So now you can be fairly sure dairy probably bothers your skin. 3 weeks later you have a fresh baked dinner roll (no butter) and you feel sort of crappy. You link that crappy feeling b
  19. Hunh, you are correct (and I've never seen that video!). The "least problematic to most problematic" does definitely stand. That's the most efficient and least disruptive way to do it. I still believe that you can do it in whatever order you want, especially if there is something coming up where the person KNOWS that they will encounter it and want to know now what the impact would be. Reintro is a personal experiment best done in the way outlined but you don't fail your Whole30 if you put toast before dairy. I guess where I get my reasoning is that if you're doing "slow roll", you don't know
  20. I don't know what video you're talking about? The reintro order is least problematic to most problematic. Realistically there is no "right way" because some of the things people don't want to bring back, some they need to break out more, some they need more time with. I don't know of any time that the reintro schedule wasn't just a suggestion, although one made with the intent of ordering them from least to most problematic.
  21. Probably not unless you went completely bezerk in the 2 weeks between your Whole30's.
  22. You can choose whatever order works for you. What do you mean not doing all legumes? You don't have to separate peas, black beans, pinto beans etc.
  23. It's impossible to give any specific feedback to possibly help you feel better without some information. Create a thread in the Troubleshooting section of the forum and list out your food from the last 3 days including exercise, sleep, stress, portions, fluids etc.
  24. Yes, this has been well-known for over 60 years. It's the tyramine in aged/fermented foods that can be a migraine trigger. "They" always say folks susceptible to migraines should avoid things like aged cheeses and cured meats etc but it's all because of tyramine which is also found in sauerkraut, kimchi, kombucha.
