  1. Haha, well she is just a human person who makes errors just like the rest of us! Trust - we are not trying to lead anyone down the garden path.
  2. Hey ya'll - Shannon from Whole30 HQ here! Wow, this is an oldie screenshot! To be clear - artificial flavors have not now nor have they ever been off limits during Whole30. Would we encourage you to find something without them? Sure, if you want. But natural and artificial flavors are fine. And before you point to the screenshot from Melissa - I've confirmed with the Whole30 team and her response was incorrect. Maybe a brain-fart, maybe she was in a hurry, maybe she didn't clearly read what you were asking before responding. But rest assured, the answer "nope" to the question about c
  3. The absolute scientific manipulation of the consumer and the human physiology should make everyone angry! They know how our bodies are going to react so they create and sell us on things that are NOT good for us but which we have a very hard time refusing. Love that you named your sugar dragon. Down with Sharon!
  4. Oh, that's fun! Should still be there, we haven't changed the content of that book!
  5. Hi Carrie, all are welcome, glad to have you! Planning is absolutely the key for success! As for cutting veggies - sturdier veggies such as squash, peppers etc will keep for a week in a container in the fridge. I would cut the more tender ones closer to when you want to use them.
  6. Haha, well I'm pouting in Canadian - and I WORK for us! LOL!
  7. Oh, interesting! I'll talk to our IT team about this! @ShannonM816 - I've got this one!
  8. Hi Lori! Just popping on to give you this link: This is sorted by start date - there are a couple starting Sep 1 if that works better for you!
  9. Made by Whole30. Meet our brand new line of Whole30 salad dressings and dipping sauces. They are inspired by Melissa Urban's own kitchen creations, designed with you in mind, and 100% Whole30 down to the very last detail. The Whole30 HQ team worked together to hand-select our five-flavor debut:House Ranch: a Whole30 staple and the best darn Ranch you’ll ever tryBuffalo Vinaigrette: made famous in Melissa's chicken-blueberry-hot-sauce saladsElderberry Vinaigrette: a dash of fruity sweetness with zero added sugarCreamy Balsamic: a classic with a creamy twistSecret Sauce: inspired by Utah Fry Sau
  10. Hi @Miss Fern - Welcome, glad to have you and yes, we definitely need to look at the positives in this weird situation!! Here's the official stance on doing Whole30 as a vegetarian/vegan.
  11. Hi, you would have to look at the package and read the ingredients to determine. I'm not sure what this item is so cannot say.
  12. Nope, don't calculate based on grams's more fluid than that. For recipes, we don't necessarily write them all as template abiding - some are side dishes or protein mains etc. Given your lack of satiety I would add fat to your meals - it's really almost impossible to overeat fats - they shut the body off when done. The satiety also depends on your portion sizes. How many cups of veggies were in that stew - how many approx palms of protein? Now can I also say that the foods that some people were/are used to eating (not saying you but it's possible) are calorically dense but
  13. This is fine. Grapes naturally have sulfites, hence the note. It's just those where it's added in the actual ingredients list.
  14. Oh no! Sorry to hear that, I will certainly pass this message along!
  15. You sure can. Note that they are quite high in starch so the method you describe above is a great use for them!
  16. Sorry to hear about your dad, @Mrs. B - it is possible that you may need to do the best you can during this tough time and then prioritize Whole30 when you return home to your routine. We know that things happen during everyone's Whole30 but in certain instances we have to take a look and see if we are served by staying on it or maybe served better by staying close but prioritizing this emergency time.
  17. Yum! For the fat, our meal template is a recommendation but really you should be assessing how you're feeling. Fat slows digestion and keeps us satisfied so if you find that you are feeling fine after your meal without another plated fat and you are going around 4-5 hours in between meals, you're probably fine. Play it by ear - there's no targeted answer here as far as specifically how much fat to have.
  18. Hi @LindsayO - I think if I were you I would try and stick with as calm of foods as I could. I know you like olives but for now you may have to come to terms with prioritizing healing your body over eating something you generally like. I'm not sure about sweet potatoes, a google search will probably help there. As for eating enough - you have all the protein options, all the non-starchy (cooked) veggie options and all the fats except nuts and olives. You can absolutely do this. If you are unable to include starchy veggies, make sure you up your fats and protein as the non-starchy veggies
  19. Interesting, @NSK, thanks for sharing!
  20. 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.
  21. Sometimes raisins are easier to find unsweetened and would work much the same.
  22. Sweet potato "toast" is sliced sweet potato and is definitely permitted on Whole30. If you, personally, have a very strong association to conventional toast where you think that putting toppings on a slice of sweet potato is a gateway food for you, then sure, you should exclude it. Latkes are also permitted for the program as they are baked or pan fried vegetables. We understand that some people may find that they are better off leaving them off and that's fine but they are also not considered SWYPO. I appreciate your passion surrounding the program and of course we want folks to read th
