  1. Yeah, not gonna lie, I don't really get it either. Back in the day when the flavors were the "normal" ones like hazelnut and vanilla it was pretty clear. But if cotton candy (which is melted sugar) isn't okay, how are marshmallow (which is also basically melted sugar) and caramel (hey, another variant of melted sugar) okay?
  2. This is going to be the hill I continue to stand on. Try adding some dark leafy greens into your meals. Kale, chard, spinach, mustard greens, beet greens, collards - they're all best cooked anyway. Carrots are teetering on the edge of being a starchy vegetable and zucchini is practically water. Try some greens.
  3. No, because it contains dextrose.
  4. I cross-referenced AIP and FODMAP lists when offering you more suggestions. Green beans and leafy greens came up as OK across the board.
  5. Get yourself some more veggies. Basically the only vegetable you're eating is zucchini? Get some other one in there - green beans, kale, chard, lettuces... Your meals look super high protein so getting some more plants in your meals will not do much harm. Also, it's really hard to gain weight when you're eating a high proportion of non-starchy veggies.
  6. That's a no. It's still a sweetener.
  7. Basing your food choices on a company listing the scientific name for an ingredient is a little reductive, in my opinion. You can google the ingredient and find out what it actually is.
  8. If you wanted to make something like an enchilada that'll be wrapped and then cooked, chard or kale or cabbage would make a good wrapper.
  9. Yes, I'm sure. If you want to do your Whole30 without them, feel free, but it artificial flavors are allowed.
  10. There's sugar in the base, so that's not going to be allowed.
  11. Fody! I've seen these in the "organic" section of my local ShopRite.
  12. Ideally, you're going to want to portion your meals so you're not snacking at all. Keep some extra cooked protein and vegetables on hand for a mini-meal if you need one, but also take a look at the composition of your meals to see what you can tweak so you don't need a snack.
  13. Probably start by making sure that you're getting enough protein, veg, and fat at each meal...your meals look a little light on the fat too.
