    Maltodextrin in Deodorant?

    Whole30 is only concerned with what you eat - if you want to find out more information on whether maltodextrin is something that you're comfortable having on your skin, Google would be your best bet but for the purpose of Whole30, it's fine in deodorant.

    Soy Lecithin!

    Soy is a very inflammatory food - you can google ' whole30 do I really need to start over' and read the article to see what your options are. It's also linked in my signature below.

    Bullet Proof Coffe During Whole30

    Where do you see in this thread that the MCT branded oil is off limits? I just read through and can't see that?

    What are the ingredients?

    Smoothie bowl success?

    Soups also don't have the sugar load that a smoothie usually has.

    Whole pomegranates...too much?

    Quite possibly and we also suggest limiting seeds... I would leave them off for a few days and see how you do... the fact that you refer to it as an 'addiction' tells me it might be a good idea to let them go for a bit... they're a good food choice but as with all good food choices, it's best to get some variety.

    Chicory root compliant?

    What is it that you've found it in? Its commonly found in herbal teas. A product like the one linked 'just like sugar' is a bit of a dead giveaway... where were you wanting to consume it?

    Chicory root compliant?

    If it's being processed into a sweetner or concentrated for the purpose of acting as a sweetening product, then yes, you would not use that sweetening product. If it's just an ingredient in tea for example, it would be fine. Consider dates. You can eat a date. You cannot eat date syrup which is just dates and water concentrated into a sweetener. Make sense?

    Bummer,, messed up the reintroduction

    First, this doesn't make you stupid and it's really counterproductive to speak to yourself like that... give yourself some love! Second, it depends on how far off the rails you went and for how many days... if it was a couple days since you ended your Whole30 and you did a little stumble at thanksgiving dinner, then maybe going back to Whole30 until you feel as good as you did at the end of your program is enough. If you've been riding off the rails for some time, or you really did a twister into every inflammatory food you could find, maybe a full W30 again would be in your best interest. it's really up to you - you want a clean and healed gut to do the reintros so you know what bothers you and what doesn't... me saying go back on it for 3 or 6 days is great and all but you really need to make the call as to where you went and where you want to go from here.

    Chicory root compliant?

    Chicory root is naturally sweet like cinnamon - it's not used as a sweetner like monk fruit for instance... tea with cinnamon and chicory root in it is naturally sweeter but not processed into a sweetner.

    Kombucha w evaporated cane sugar!

    I would say yes on the condition that as you said, you didn't keep drinking it. If you had asked, discovered how sweet it was, read the label, realized it might be a no and then kept drinking it, that would not be an 'everything you could do'. If you stopped after two sips, asked again, checked the label and then didn't have more until a determination could be made, that seems reasonable right?

    Kombucha w evaporated cane sugar!

    You could contact the company and ask them if they put the sugar in before or after the first fermentation... the only way it is compliant for the program is if any sugar/sweetener is put in BEFORE the first fermentation. Anything added after the first fermentation has to be Whole30 approved (fruit, fruit juice etc... is fine). The way this label looks, I 'assume' the sugar is before the first fermentation but you should really contact them and check because for instance, a GT Dave's Kombucha shows 8g of sugar which is more what we would expect if there was nothing added after the fermentation.

    Thrive Market

    Thrive has been discussed at length here on the forum... google 'whole30forum thrive market' and you'll find dozens of threads with info, products, experiences etc...

    Compliant prenatal vitamin

    That's a discussion you should be having with your care provider. If you are eating a lot of dark leafy greens and other high calcium foods, then you should be good but we wouldn't say one way or the other whether you should be supplementing as we don't know your context.

    Approved Sweeteners

    Not a sweetner persay but cinnamon is actually sweet so you could put a cinnamon stick in with your grounds and see if that helps?
