    The Official "Can I Have..." Guide to the Whole30

    Miracle noodles have no carbs and no calories because our body doesn't recognise them as food and cannot use them. If I said to you put this gas in your car but by the way the car won't recognise it and the engine can't use it - you'd think I was mad. Yet somehow humans now think it's acceptable to eat *food* that our bodies can't use. Sorry but this is one of my pet peeves W30 is about eating real wholesome nutritious food that will nourish our bodies not 'stuff' that will provide us with absolutely nothing so please, please no miracle noodles

    Spending way too much $$ on groceries!

    I have a very small fridge freezer provided by the landlord so I can't change it. I bought a table top freezer which, don't laugh, lives in my bedroom. In it, I keep meats that I've cooked and frozen in individual portions. The trouble is, its so crammed full that my new menu planning is open the freezer and whatever falls out first is the meal
  3. Plantains are the first that spring to mind.

    The crazy things people say

    Every so often I do the YouGov surveys. You state how well you agree or disgaree with a statement. One of todays was " I like to treat myself with foods that are not good for me". Excuse me????? If a food is not good for me, how on earth is that a treat?

    My short and simple answer is "I've found they don't agree with me". Well they don't

    food dreams

    I really don't know but my food dream was eating a cheese sandwich. Now I've been gluten free for 12 years and dairy free for nearly 3 years so why that? I haven't a clue. I must have a really warped subconcsious

    Ideas for more fats?!

    Home made mayo on anything, coconut oil either to cook with or melt on top of veggies etc

    The crazy things people say

    Went into an in-store cafe to treat myself to a black coffee. Was served it and then had the following conversation. Server : Is that all or can I tempt you with one of our cakes or muffins. Me: No thanks, that's fine. Server : Oh, ok here then and puts shortbread type cookie on my saucer. Me : No thanks, don't waste that. I won't be eating it. Server : But it's free! Me : (thinking to avoid an argument) It's ok I'm gluten free. Server : Oh, no problem I can get you a gluten free one. Me : (wishing I'd never brought it up) No thanks, honestly don't bother. Server : Oh you people that stick to your new year's diet. Me : I'm not actually on a diet. Server : What! You're not on a diet and you still don't want this even though it's free??

    Coffee Creamer?

    I'm so glad you said this. I've drunk coffee straight black for over 40 years. I've recently started using either the creamer or coconut milk + oil in my coffee just to get the extra fat. I still can't face my first coffee like that though, that one has to be black.

    Don't over think this.

    Robin, I'm going to print this out and keep it. You don't have to address every food related issue you have, break every bad habit, and shun every food that gives you comfort to succeed with your Whole30. I love it, love it, love it. thankyou

    5 hour energy

    Someone in another post was saying she drinks this http://www.criobru.com/crio-bru/ I can't get it here in the UK but it does sound awesome. I don't think it's actually got caffeine but I think it would still give you a lift from the cacao. also what about tea, green or black both have caffeine Me, I'll stick with my black coffee (am only )

    The crazy things people say

    My friend said "Oh it's all right for you, you've always been able to give things up (having a severe gluten reaction, I've had no choice) but I couldn't possibly eat like you - I like my food too much" Another friend " Oh I couldn't possibly eat like you - I couldn't afford all that meat and fresh vegetables are really expensive" while, I kid you not, filling her supermarket trolley with Over £80 of cakes, bisciuts, sweets and processed crap.
