  1. Yes. I see you've made a few posts with individual items - if you have a bunch of questions, feel free to combine them into one post - it keeps the forum neater. Second, you can also google 'whole30 + item' and results from past conversations should come up so you don't have to wait for someone to answer.
  2. What are the ingredients? If the ingredients are only peas then yes. If there are other non compatible ingredients in it then no.
  3. As long as all the ingredients in them are compatible with the Whole30, we don't dictate how things like this are prepared.
  4. Sorry you're not feeling well! It's hard to say what could be causing the digestive upset - 24/48 hours is probably not chronic, it could just be a detox happening or if you're eating a lot of something now that you normally didn't before (say for instance entire whole avocados with every meal or a ton of nuts/seeds). If you want to give us a run down of your meals, we can see if anything stands out that you can add or remove that might help. Not every Whole30 compatible food is compatible with every Whole30'er so there might be something in there we can adjust.
  5. Ya, I agree with you there - it's a frustrating transition! The cool part is that once you know these things and potentially grieve the things you have to leave behind (yes, that's a real thing), you know that you're pretty safe that you're going to have an amazing experience at the Fall Fair because you didn't eat something that maybe your tummy was okay with but that gave you a headache or made you tired or grouchy... for instance... it's quite freeing but there can definitely be a grieving period as we move through this.
  6. I would say maybe you're not eating enough. You don't list vegetables with your meal and if you're shorting yourself over the previous day's meals, then you're going to be behind the eight ball with the next day...
  7. You might also try a magnesium supplement like Natural Calm (the unflavored is compatible with Whole30). If you're not used to taking it, start slow and work up to a full dose or you might end up with the reverse situation of your problem A couple things also worth trying... white potatoes can be constipating so try leaving them off for a bit. Leave off the nuts/nut butter - it's amazing how so little can cause huge problems... Not sure what proteins you're eating but a lot of red meat can be a source of constipation so make sure you're switching up your protein sources so you've got pou
  8. It's not that you've become intolerant in the last 30 days. It's likely that you WERE intolerant to those items but your gut does try and protect itself and creates a mucus layer to keep it as safe as possible from those things. In the 30 days, your body got rid of that because it wasn't necessary - now you're bringing those foods back and gut doesn't have that built in protection. Could you force your body to go back and tolerate it again? I guess... to me it seems like you healed a wound and now you want to make a wound again just to put a bandaid on it so that occasionally you can ea
  9. Hey there, sorry that you're feeling crappy! It's really not uncommon to feel really fatigued and even weak. I've copied the timeline below - you may just be experiencing the general symptoms a bit later than it says - it's just an idea of how it might look and lots of people get some, all, none of the symptoms right on time, late, early... What are you eating for the rest of your meals? I"m suspecting that you're undereating which will also create feelings of fatigue and tiredness - the fact that eating made you feel a little better is my hint that this might be the case. If you wa
  10. Our concern would not be whether an item is 'keto' friendly and to be honest, I know nothing about Keto. What I do know is that if the item had sugar in it, then it would not be compatible for the Whole30 but you haven't said if you're actually in the middle of doing a Whole30 or not so not sure what suggestions you're looking for. The spices you're thinking of sound great, just check the ingredients if you're going to use any of them doing a Whole30. You might get more information about how to prepare meat on a cooking forum - Whole30 is completely devoted to the Whole30 program an
  11. On the forum here, you just join in on any of the threads that are going to be going during the month of September - it's a titch early for them to be showing up but you could even start one and others can join in. There are also Whole30 resources like Melissa's Daily Texts (not sure if it works if you're not in the US tho) and other resources HQ is putting out for September. A good way to find out about that stuff is to follow Whole30 on social media (Instagram, facebook).
  12. Hey there! You should definitely not be so hungry. This is an elimination program, not a restriction diet so we want you eating enough to nourish your body. Are you following the meal template (linked in my signature below) three times a day? Are you adding the plated fat? If you want some feedback on your meals, list a few days here with approximate portion sizes and we can see how we can adjust your intake so you're not starving because that's definitely NOT what we want!
