    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

    Make sure to tag us and use #madebyWhole30 when you post your taste tests, reviews, and recipes. We can’t wait to hear what you think.

    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.

    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.

    ladyshanny got a reaction from EllieHH in Whole30 Approved at Walmart!   
    Have you seen the Whole30 Approved meals at your local Walmart yet? Eight delicious varieties of Great Value frozen meals have been rolling out to Walmart stores nationwide all month long. Keep an eye out … if they’re not in your local store, they should be soon!⠀

    These meals feature American Humane Certified protein, lots of veggies, and delicious herbs, spices, and sauces perfect for between-meeting bites, fast weeknight dinners, and travel meals. In addition, Walmart's commitment to move towards GAP-certified animal protein in Whole30 meals by 2019 is a huge step towards changing our food system and making ethically-sourced animal protein more affordable than ever.⠀

    A big part of our ongoing diversity and inclusion efforts involves making the Whole30 easier and more accessible for our entire community. Over the last few years, many Whole30 convenience products (like meat sticks, condiments, and sauces) have entered the market, but because of their price point, they are often seen as luxuries for those shopping on a budget. Partnering with Walmart to create Whole30 offerings under their Great Value brand will help make the Whole30 easier and more accessible for everyone.
    Some frequently asked questions:
    Are these available in Canada: We wish we could send ALL the Whole30 Approved things across the border to you! Alas, things are complicated when it comes to shipping, distribution and international borders. We are hopeful these might be available to you in Canada someday, and in general we are trying to partner with Canada based brands.
     
    What about additives? The meals have some common additives in them (like potato starch or citric acid), as many other compliant shelf stable or frozen options do. (Please note, any mention of “sulfites” are naturally occurring in the vinegar, NOT added.) These are additives that have always been compliant with the program. Check out our common additives cheat sheet resource for more information about which additives are okay for your Whole30.
     
    Will it be at MY Walmart? It's rolling out to about 4,000 Walmart stores nationwide; if the Walmart near you carries better for you frozen brands, it's likely you'll find these Whole30 Approved meals there too.
     
    But can we trust Walmart? We assure you, this is of top priority for us as well. We have an audit clause written into our contract, and the right to inspect their facilities and production at any time during the partnership to confirm compliance. They are also mandated to provide us with detailed quarterly reporting as to their efforts to move towards GAP certified protein. Finally, we have been working on this partnership for more than a year. They were all 100% on board with a Whole30 approach, many having done the program themselves, and the entire team recognized and respected our rules and standards. We know their entire team respects our mission and community, but we also have the right (and will exercise this right) to verify through an independent audit.

    ladyshanny reacted to LindsayO in Suggestions for Coffee Substitute?   
    As much as I love coffee, it no longer agrees with me  I have severe gut issues and coffee affects my gut and produces brain fog/bloating. I have leaky gut and bottom line is that drinking coffee is very unpredictable, sometimes it's fine but many times lately it just makes me sick.
    The problem is, that tea just doesn't do it for me! I've tried every tea, and the only tea that I somewhat like is green tea. But it doesn't give me the energy kick like coffee does, and it just doesn't compare to that good coffee feeling you get in the morning! I'm going to try and add MCT Oil to my green tea to see if that helps give me the energy kick I usually get with coffee.
    I'm also thinking about drinking bone broth in the morning as I know it will probably do wonders for my gut. But it's not as good as coffee....
    Has anybody quit coffee and what did you use a substitute? Back when I tolerated coffee, it was a great part of my morning routine and felt so good. Yet I don't seem to have that experience with any other beverage...
