    Nazza B, I don't know if it is just me, but I didn't think Coconut Aminos were much like soy sauce at all! Still nice, in a sweet, slightly salty, subtle way, but not that hit like you get with soy sauce. I did find them useful when doing my Whole30 though, as something to try and experiment with, when you are feeling a bit deprived! I still use them now, and they are def. great with seafood, also good for a splash on stir fried greens, or in salad dressing. If you can source them, afford them and don't mind buying overseas products, then can't hurt to give it a try!

    Edit: Hmm, OK, I was sure I had read that nitrates/ nitrites were not a problem on Whole30... as long as the bacon is sugar free, and free range (not intensively/ factory farmed). The bacon I buy is Murray Valley free range, traditionally smoked onsite, cured without sugar (and gluten free too). The Bacon Manifesto seems to say that nitrates/ nitrites are not part of their 'rules'? I would eat the panna cotta as part of breakfast. Its not something I would normally eat for dessert, just a way to consume coconut milk and gelatine in a convenient breakfast... however, I've not made it without honey, so it may taste fairly awful without it!

    Hi Aussie Mell, I use coconut cream/ milk in the kids smoothies, and a coconut milk pannacotta, but those might be considered too paleofied for the Whole30? The Honest to Goodness brand coconut milk is organic and no additives, plus BPA free tin. www.goodness.com.au (Also available at Supabarns). I have always bought the Ayam brand because it has no additives. I also buy my organic coconut oil at Honest to Goodness online, 5 litres for $75.40. Lasts for ages! I also recently purchased Coconut Aminos and Red Boat Fish Sauce from Rachaels Organics, an Adelaide company. www.rachaelsorganics.com I am thinking Rachael is a member here?? I see she also sells Whole30 style ghee, though I make my own ghee from 180Acres Pastured Organic butter (also sold at my local Supabarn!)

    Woo hoo, my local butcher does sugar free/ gluten free bacon. It has nitrates, but I can live with those for now. For any Canberra area people, Jordos Chop Shop has an online shop with deliveries. Grass fed beef (though he occasionally stocks grain fed, so just double check) and lamb, free range pork, cuts on the bone, beef fat etc. www.jordoschopshop.com Thanks [email protected]

    Hi GoJo09, yes, those Tamari almonds are evil. I am going to ask our butcher what his has in it. It is free range ppork, and they smoke it themselves. Crossing my fingers he says it doesn't have sugar! I make my own kombucha, and drink small amounts every couple of days, more as tonic, than as an actual drink, if that makes sense! Coffee, yeah, I usually have it white, but it tends to flair up my skin issues!

    Oh, and in amongst all that stuff, I didn't say that I find Honest to Goodness has some good products, either buying online, or they sell their brand in Supabarns. Sorry, I didn't get to read the rest of this thread yet, so apologies if this has been mentioned! I will probably find the answer to my questions when I actually read through it all too!

    Hi all, I just started a Whole30 today, and am excited to find this thread and other Aussies doing it this month too (I am from Canberra). I found out about Whole30 through Instagram (The Merrymaker Sisters) plus I have a friend who has completed a Whole30 previously. I just need to make sure my bacon is sugar free (or find an alternative), & find out whether I can continue having kombucha or not, and getting a handle on 'snacking'.
