    Day 30 & Still Bloated

    The main thing that strikes me is you're eating only two meals and a fair amount of salads.

    Can we eat yucca?

  3. Okay...well, it wasn't clear that you were buying them by the case. For Whole30, it's going to have to be citrus juice or freezing. Orange juice may work, but it won't keep them from browning for particularly long. Anything else would be based around sugar, like you said.
  4. Like avocados, buy them in various stages of ripeness. Get a couple that are slightly softer and some that are a little harder...the harder ones will ripen later than the ones that were a little softer when you bought them. Peaches also freeze and thaw pretty well.

    Is Organic actually better?

    How about the Journal of Toxicology? I'd say it's less of a "carnivore vegan thing" and more of a "science" thing.

    Is Organic actually better?

    EWG is not a particularly reputable group. There's also a really good article on Influence Watch, but their site's down at the moment, so I can't link there.

    What can I haver for snacks?

    Rather than put out a carte blanche for snacks, we could try troubleshooting your meals if you post what you've been eating for your 3 meals along with portion sizes.

    Help! What to do with frozen avocado?

    Just let it thaw and slice it as usual.

    Are French fries made in an air fryer compliant?

    That's a situation that will largely depend on the person. If she finds herself making air fried fries at every meal and cooking herself several potatoes' worth of fries, she should step back. If they're an occasional inclusion in a mean, they're basically just roasted potatoes.

    Coffee Smoothie?

    Also keep in mind that lots of bloggers/websites/etc will tag things as "Whole30" when they have literally no idea what the program entails.

    Day 5 low water absorption

    If you know you've been low on salt, add more salt to your diet. Don't just up your water. That's how you give yourself hyponatremia.

    Plant-Based "Meats"

    The Impossible meats could possibly be in now...just got an email saying that "most" peas are allowed. Peas: Yes. Green peas, yellow peas, split peas, sugar snap peas, and snow peas are an exception to the “no legume” rule per a rule change in 2020. Pea Protein: Yes. 100% green or yellow pea protein is acceptable on the program. Pea protein is often used by functional medicine providers since it’s gentle even for sensitive patients (those with GI issues or a host of allergies/intolerances) and is considered a “hypoallergenic” protein source. However, many vegan protein blends also include other grains like rice, and/or have added sugar, sugar alcohol, or artificial sweeteners. Pea proteins that also contain off-plan ingredients are NOT compliant.

    Sports Drinks

    The unflavored variety of LMNT Recharge is compliant. You could add a little juice to your water, mix with this, and it'll be like your own personalized sports drink.

    My Dinner at Zoe's

    Honestly, it's probably ghee. Because it's made from butter, dairy has to be listed as an allergen. Call the restaurant and ask for the ingredients. Tell them you had a reaction to something you ate and you need to know.

    Smoothies with meals?

    How about a blended vegetable soup instead?

    Smoked Seasonings and Mud WTR

    It means that the mushrooms are grown on oats. In the same way that Whole30 leaves it up to individuals if they want to/are able to be selective about what their meat animals are fed, Whole30 evaluated this product and decided that it's okay. It doesn't contain any oats.
  17. Before you spend much more time stressing about it, call the restaurant. Say that you had a reaction to something in the dressing and you need the list of ingredients. Then you'll know for sure. Hummus sounds like an odd thing to put in a dressing. Tahini (which is sesame seed paste), sure...I've put that in my own dressings to make it creamy. It's also possible that you've been stressing yourself out over this and gave yourself a headache. So give them a call and find out for sure.

    Looking for a substitute for melted cheese as a “glue”.

    I think by the fact that you started off looking for a binder and now are trying to figure out a cheesy texture, this might be something you leave off until after your Whole30. Nothing anyone suggests is going to that closely mimic the texture of cheese, which is what you're looking for.
  19. if you don't have a lot to lose, then you just might not lose any. It's also possible that your "natural weight" has changed in the last 7 years. Or you're not eating enough for your level of activity.

    Fighting off a cold since the beginning

    Honestly, probably not. It's winter and practically everyone has some kind of virus.

    Rx Bars are emergency food only - like you're unexpectedly stuck in traffic for hours. Pre-workout isn't an emergency
  22. Toss a big ol' bowl of pretty much whatever veg you want with some oil/ghee and seasonings and chuck it in the oven to roast while you're having dinner. Then you'll have lots of ready-to-go cooked veg. Almost as quick as raw

    Is Whole30 Compliant Buffalo Chicken Dip Allowed?

    "Whole30 compliant" and "delicious" aren't mutually exclusive. Now, if buffalo wings have always been a food without brakes for you, then the recipe may well be SWYPO. But SWYPO is a very personal and subjective thing.

    Almost Done With Day 17 and I Feel Nothing

    It may not be a matter of not eating enough from a volume perspective, but the proportions being off. All the veg you have listed is either starchy or, like, heavy. Might want to play around with swapping out all or part of one of those potato servings for a veg that's green. Cook some chard or kale with the bacon at dinner. Tweaking your pre- and post-workout "meals" may also've not got any protein in there and protein/carb is the recommended pre/post-workout rather than carb/fat.
  25. Which option for what is best?
