    So glad you are doing well, day 23 now, I'm hanging in there, loving my food more and more. I made mayo and it's delicious. I am glad I didn't make it any sooner as it's been a real boost this late in the game!

    Ghee- making me feel yucko?

    This was a brand new jar and it smelled wonderful and tasted great! I am going to do some experimenting and that's a great idea to have the same meal without the ghee. I also am going to not use it for a several days and then try it again to see if I have a reaction.

    That seems possible!! Thanks for mentioning it!

    Ghee- making me feel yucko?

    Let me change my question. I have suspected a dairy allergy or sensitivity in the past. Today on day 18 I added ghee to my whole30. Is it possible there is some thing about/still in ghee that would bother a person who has had likely trouble with Greek yogurt, and possibly other things as well. Like I said the way I feel is not uncommon but has been missing since I have been doing this, which I didn't realize until I started feeling bad after dinner.

    Ghee- making me feel yucko?

    Salt potatoes, they are a regional thing, not sure what they really are. They are smallish, pale skin, very light yellow flesh. I have had them once before during my 30, and I don't remember that they bothered me. I just had them plain last time.

    Ghee- making me feel yucko?

    I am on day 18 today, and just got a jar of ghee in the mail that I ordered on Amazon, it's the pure Indian foods brand. 100% organic. I have had it prior. I put it on some potatoes, and have felt kind of sick to my stomach since dinner was over, and am I belching these huge awful burps. I have to say this is a familiar feeling, but one I did not realize was missing the last 18 days until it showed up tonight. Could it be the ghee? My other theory is just that dinner was so good tonight I over ate, and that's what is going on. I don't feel like that is it though, I had 2.5 chicken drumsticks and two servings of small potatoes smashed down to about the size of my open hand with ghee spread on top.

    I used ghee today for the first time, we had potatoes and I put it on those, it was delicious, but I may have over done it, feeling puny now.

    I'm still hanging in, made it through enough tough spots it'd truly be a shame to throw in the towel now, day 18!

    Ok today has become my biggest challenge. I can not believe I can't have a glass of wine. I hate this.

    I made it until 5pm before thinking about "what day" it is. Day 11

    He was released last night. We are home. My mom got pizza for the kids for dinner, and I pretty easily resisted and had a chicken breast pan fried with mushrooms and onions. I am really proud of myself. If anything this will help me stick with it at this point. If I did that with out blowing it, why would I blow it now right!? I am starting to feel changes in my body, bloating going away mostly I think. I am not weighing though, which is hard for me, but kind of nice to not be allowed to. How did your birthday go Monday?

    Thanks, the cafeteria had a salad bar with oil and vinegar for dressing, I was able to get egg on the salad too for protein. Maybe I will make it! He is having an MRI tomorrow, hopefully that will show everything is ok. He has been great today, just a stiff neck. Spinal tap ruled out meningitis thankfully.
