    Missmunchie - I had no idea there were any carton coconut milks that were whole30 approved?! I always use the cans - which I don't mind. Great find!

    Greenhm - I felt the same way after weighing myself this morning (which I don't ever do). But that's exactly why we're changing that starting RIGHT NOW! So turn your discouragement in to motivation! We've got this!

    CALLING ALL JANUARY 1ST WHOLE30ERS!

    Happy Day 1 (for most of us) everyone! I'm feeling excited and motivated to make this next 30 days fantastic! I'm so tired of being so busy through the holidays and eating like crap. I've already eaten eggs, bacon, and sweet potato hash for breakfast and feel better already. I did my meal planning and grocery shopping yesterday. I have some prepping to do today and I'll be good to go for the next 6 days. I love seeing such a range of whole30'ers in here - newbies and veterans! "_ How's everyone feeling on your day 1? I'm a little afraid that I'll experience "the hangover" stage at full force this time because my body has SO MUCH to detox after the holidays kicked my butt so hard. I may seem a little angry in a few days but don't worry, I'll get over it. Let's kick ass, all! Happy New Year!

    Hey tallison! Here are a couple of meal plan resources that I've seen others use. I haven't reviewed these to see that all meals are for sure whole30 compliant (this is a 3rd party source and there are many things online that claim to be whole30 but aren't neceassarily) so always, always check your labels. I know it can be overwhelming - especially if you're new to whole30 but I promise you'll get the hang of it! We're here to support you! http://thenourishinghome.com/2014/11/free-whole30-meal-plans-2/ http://frugalontheprairie.com/the-busy-persons-whole30-meal-plan-week-1/ Whole 30 website also has some great resources - http://whole30.com/pdf-downloads/

    Hey Ninetoze! I'm with you on the sugar addiction. The other stuff (bread, beans, etc.) was much easier for me to give up. But the sugar dragon is REAL. Time to kick it! We've got this!

    CALLING ALL JANUARY 1ST WHOLE30ERS!

    1 More day to go! (for most of us) I thought I would share my favorite whole30 compliant things that may be helpful. I would love for anyone else to share too! Bacon - This stuff is amazing. Amazing. http://grasslandbeef.com/sugar-free-pork-bacon-slices?affId=108183 Condiments - The slow roasted garlic sauce is so delicious. We love their ketchup/mustard too! http://www.tessemaes.com/collections/all/whole30-approved Snacks - Barefoot Provisions has a ton of compliant snacks. My absolute favorite is the Good brand Coconut Chips. The Mango Macadamia Adventure snack mix is yummy too. http://barefootprovisions.com/collections/whole30?page=3 Ghee - I can't live without ghee - whole30 or not! Tinstar has the most delicious ghee I have found. And Thrive Market has it the cheapest that I've found! https://thrivemarket.com/cultured-grass-fed-ghee? La Croix - I can't live without La Croix either - I used to think it was nasty, maybe it's somewhat of an acquired taste? Whatever. It's amazing. My favorite flavor is the cherry lime. I also love the regular one and I mix it with 100% pure cranberry juice and fresh squeeze of lemon for a delicious "mocktail". You can get La Croix at any market I think! Anyone else have some to share?? I'm always looking for ideas!

    Hey Bemcbe! Before I ever started a whole30, I was so obsessed with peanut butter. Like I put it with everything! But almond butter and cashew butter quickly became my new favorite. I haven't had peanut butter in probably 2 years! We'll be here to support you through your PB withdrawals.
