    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 try
    Buffalo Vinaigrette: made famous in Melissa's chicken-blueberry-hot-sauce salads
    Elderberry Vinaigrette: a dash of fruity sweetness with zero added sugar
    Creamy Balsamic: a classic with a creamy twist
    Secret Sauce: inspired by Utah Fry Sauce, our version is good on everything

    They’re available exclusively through Thrive Market, and right now you can take an additional 30% off of the four dressings—House Ranch, Buffalo Vinaigrette, Elderberry Vinaigrette, and Creamy Balsamic. (Keep your eyes out for Secret Sauce, which is coming very soon.)

    Be one of the first to try all four varieties. Tap the link to get them now! THRIVE MARKET

    ladyshanny got a reaction from cassnate18 in At what point is ReIntro just a modified W30?   
    Many (many!) of us tend to stick to a mostly Whole30 framework after we've done our reintros because there are foods that make us feel less than fantastic. It's such a unique result for every person, there's just no possible one outcome. Congrats on figuring out what does and doesnt work for you!

    ladyshanny got a reaction from lizziehall in Worried about not stepping on the scale   
    Aw, sorry to hear that you're having that internal struggle. But what if you change your mindset and internal dialogue. if you are eating protein, veggies and good fats in a quantity that gets you 4-5 hours in between and allows you to feel well, sleep better, think clearer etc - would you change what you were doing because of what the scale said? Would you eat less and be more hungry and have less stable moods and less energy just to make the scale move? What would be the point in that? 
    Also try and remember that the "optimal" weights that they say women should weigh do not take into consideration that women are not men. Are you 55# overweight? Specifically? Like if you lost exactly 55#, everything would be perfect? 
    I'm not trying to give you a hard time, I promise. As I've aged and my life has changed I have gained weight too..........but it doesn't define who I am, it doesn't make me less loveable or more deserving of critique. This body you have has been with you through it all every single day of your life without fail. Be kind to it - speak nicely to it - don't submit it to a weigh in, instead submit it to a love-in.

    ladyshanny got a reaction from SugarcubeOD in First Date?   
    I echo what @Jihanna said about picking the restaurant - especially on a first date. Your comfort and convenience are important and sometimes as women we just go along with whatever we're "told". 
    I disagree about having the conversation about what you do and don't eat - you don't owe anyone an explanation, least of all a first date prospect.  If it naturally comes up in the conversation then great, maybe he also avoids gluten or alcohol. But it's not up to you to design yourself to be the least troublesome, most amenable human being you can be. You do you. They either respect that or they don't. It's a good way to weed in or out.

    No one here is a doctor. We can't give you any kind of medical advice.
    A change in diet is going to affect blood sugar levels, but three days isn't necessarily long enough to say whether it's going to continue at this level or change over time as your body adjusts. I would suggest maybe calling your doctor and telling them what's going on and see if they are concerned enough to change something now or if you're ok to just wait until you go in next week.
    Obviously though if this is really affecting how you feel and whether you're able to carry on with your day, go to a doctor or urgent care or something now.

    ladyshanny reacted to annierl in not sleeping   
    Last night I took an hour long epsom salt bath and listened to a book tape while my husband watched tv.  I put ear plugs in and folded a pillow case over my eyes when I got in bed to block the tv light and went straight to sleep.  The tv did wake me up eventually and I turned it off and slept great the rest of the night.  I ended up at work early this morning.  I guess there may be something to the effects of blue light.

    This. Right. Here.
    My husband routinely stays up later than I do, and often heads to bed without turning off his PC monitor... not to mention having a phone in his hand for a good portion of his resting time, since he reads on it. I haven't had to pull out ear plugs yet (though they're definitely available in my house, just in case!), but an eye mask has been my saving grace on many nights when he just can't seem to get himself settled enough to sleep. I keep it within reach of the bed so I can grab it quickly if needed, after trying without it first.
    I've also noticed that a nice calming cup of tea about 20 minutes before bedtime has done wonders for me, though it really doesn't do anything about the bright screens

    ladyshanny got a reaction from ultrarunnergirl in Normal to feel less hungry?   
    It's not uncommon at all. Sometimes it can be from hormonal imbalance and sometimes it can be from the nutritional density of the Whole30 foods if the person came from a less whole foods approach. Also, lack of appetite begets lack of eating which further begets lack of appetite. It can be quite the circle because the further you go along the more nauseous and unwell feeling. Try and make palatable meals and eat them every 4-5 hours until your signals regulate. It shouldn't take too long. Having the first meal within an hour of waking will also help quite a bit. If you're only eating a bit, prioritize protein, veggies and fats and leave off fruits.

    ladyshanny got a reaction from BabyBear in Add fat to Whole30 recipes?   
    Nope, don't calculate based on grams etc....it'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 nutritionally barren. This causes your body to never say "enough" because it hasn't received the things it needs.  When you are eating protein, veggies and good fats you will have a hard time overeating to any measurable amount. Maybe at first you'll eat more because your body is crying for micronutrition? But in the long game your body will tell you what it needs. Same goes for thirst. Drink the water even if you don't think you need it and that will all regulate.

    It is different - zucchini noodles is zucchini cut in a certain way - no additives or processing. Sweet potato noodles are the same - just a thinly sliced sweet potato. Cauliflower rice is shredded cauliflower. Gnocchi on the other hand is a bunch of ingredients put together to make a soft, doughy dumpling and the program has determined that these are out for the 30 days.
