    laura_juggles got a reaction from SugarcubeOD in Can I have D-Ribose>   
    Limited studies have shown that people with coronary artery disease may benefit from taking extra D-Ribose, but outside those circumstances, your body makes it on its own and supplementation is not necessary. You can also get Ribose from foods like beef and eggs. 
    Again, though, if it has been recommended by a person's doctor (and not some doctor on the internet), it's fair game.

    laura_juggles got a reaction from elizardbeth in Question about Nutpods   
    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?

    Thank you so much for clarifying this as red wine vinegar is something that I buy a lot and the particular brand I used to buy isn't available anymore and I've found that what I can find says exactly this "contains sulfites" which made me think it wasn't allowed.

    laura_juggles got a reaction from JRBILW30 in Red wine vinegar   
    Can you post a picture of the ingredients? Because "contains suflites" doesn't automatically make the vinegar a no-go since sulfites occur naturally in vinegars (like naturally occurring glutamate in tomatoes is OK but added MSG is not). 
    So, a vinegar that's ok may say something like "Ingredients: red wine vinegar reduced with water to 5% acidity (contains sulfites)" and that's ok. But if it says something like "Ingredients: red wine vinegar, sulfur dioxide" that's not okay because it's a separate ingredient.

    Go with what the bottle says. Stores and other websites can copy and paste random information from other places or just throw in information from other products if someone doesn't feel like researching what that particular product actually lists. Always go with what the label on the product in your hand says.

    However, I've had great success with just whisking up some eggs with a little water and cooking very flat omelets in a pan which I've then filled with other ingredients and rolled up and that's compliant!

    laura_juggles got a reaction from Jennifer Jensen in 2nd Whole30 reintro dilemma   
    I'm guessing/hoping that you stopped eating dairy and gluten after your first Whole30, so you're left with mostly legumes, non-gluten grains, alcohol, and the additives like MSG and carrageenan? 
    Maybe take it as a slow roll reintro of those remaining items? A day for soy, couple days back to Whole30, a day for non-gluten grains, couple days later peanuts, couple days later other legumes? Because, like, if your hands hurt on soy day, but they don't hurt for peanuts or other legumes, then you don't have to avoid all the legumes. 
    Does that makes sense?

    Honey and other sweeteners are not allowed on Whole30, so it is very unlikely you're going to find a Whole30 compatible honey mustard. 
    @Healthgrabyou have made several posts suggesting items that are not compatible with Whole30. We definitely want people to participate in the forums, but they are very specifically Whole30 forums. As such, you should familiarize yourself with the rules, and make suggestions that fit those rules. You can find the rules and other information here:  https://whole30.com/pdf-downloads/.

    laura_juggles got a reaction from Kynard in Sweetener clarification   
    A big part of the Whole30 is getting you to eat whole, unprocessed foods. Fruit juice used in these recipes is, at most, blended and strained. 
    The process to make stevia extract or the white powder we get in those little packets at Starbucks is, well, quite a process. And the resulting product is never just stevia. 
    In the majority of Whole30 recipes where fruit juice is used, the juice is both imparting flavor and cutting bitterness with the sugar. Stevia's only purpose is to make things sweet. It's kind of amazing finding out what things actually taste like when your tongue isn't so attuned to sweeteners.

    Coffee at most. 
    Those drinks fake you out into feeling like you actually have the energy and then it turns into a vicious cycle of needing them because you're just so dang exhausted. 
    Take an extra rest day as an active recovery day as you need it while you're getting yourself weaned off those drinks.

    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.

    laura_juggles got a reaction from mountaincatfarm in Can i have balsamic vinegar?   
    That's not always true either, unfortunately. Often, ingredients will list the sulfites whether they're added or not. If the label says something like this:
    Ingredients: Wine Vinegar, Grape Must Concentrate, Cooked Grape Must, Sulphur Dioxide (Antioxidant)
    then it's out because of the Sulphur Dioxide. But if it says something like this:
    Ingredients: Wine Vinegar (contains sulphites), Grape Must Concentrate, Cooked Grape Must
    then it's compliant because the sulphites are naturally occurring in the vinegar.
