    crackers....

    Correct! No recreating baked goods of any kind regardless of the ingredients.

    Tajin Seasoning

    If the four ingredients are not on the 'do not eat' list then you can. If they are, then you can't. What are the ingredients?

    Sesame oil and Bone broth

    The item with soybean oil would not be compliant. What are the ingredients of the Ancient Nutrition bone broth you want to use?
  4. SugarcubeOD

    Sunflower protein powder

    Nuts and seeds are meant to be limited so this would not be the best choice and smoothies/shakes are discouraged so again, not a great choice. You can find both items in this article and the official stance on them https://whole30.com/2013/06/the-official-can-i-have-guide-to-the-whole30/

    Can I have D-Ribose>

    If this has been prescribed by a doctor to your wife then she may have it and whether it follows the rules or not is moot. If it's one of those things like Acai or other super foods that people say is great for xyz, like a glass of red wine a day is good for xyz then no.

    Team outing to La Roma - Greek - Advice please

    You would need to contact the restaurant and ask them what they use to season with, what they put in anything you might be interested in eating - the cabbage rolls have cracked wheat in them according to the menu so those would be out.

    Buffalo Butter

    Not if it's made with animal dairy which I assume it is. Good for after tho

    Change my Whole 30 Log Title?

    We actually can edit the title, you just need to use the edit button in the first post and it brings up the title @aliem999 - all done
  9. Please, steal away... give it to everyone!
  10. It's not that unusual and it's usually from either hormones (if you are a person who menstruates) or from consistently undereating... even if you're only slightly undereating, nutrition is cumulative so it's possible that there's some room for improvement there. If you like, go ahead and list out a few days of your meals and we can take a look and see if anything stands out.

    Too much Avocado?

    The thumb rule/recommendation is for liquid fats like cooking fat (olive oil, coconut oil etc). Each other fat choice has it's own measurement on the meal template - avocado is a half to a whole, olives are 1-2 heaping open handfuls etc... have a look at the meal template (linked in my signature below) and you'll find more there.

    Carbs needed for energy

    Oh, I'd put the almond butter on a spoon but that's just me I would think raw potatoes that you then roast over a camp fire or camp stove would last just fine and not sure why you 'can't' do olives but there are places that sell prepackaged olives in little pouches (I've bought them from trader joe's before) that would keep just fine. As far as cheating... well, there's no such thing But maybe you can plan a Whole30 around a time when you're not doing a week long trip - it's only 30 days and then you can reintro all your usual stuff and see what works best.

    Bacon

    It doesn't matter how the pig was treated (for the purpose of compliance on the program) so the first one would be compliant. The second one, anytime a product says 'less than 2% of a non compliant ingredient, that makes it no go. This is a sneaky way for manufacturers to get around listing all the ingredients on the main ingredient panel but because it's still included in the product that makes it no go. Definitely don't assume that because a brand has some compliant products that ALL their products are compliant because that's definitely not the case so unless it has the Whole30 label on it, you'll have to read the ingredients.

    Carbs needed for energy

    Nuts and nut butters would be considered fat on the Whole30 so if you're looking to replace like for like in the peanut butter department, other nut butters (almond, cashew), olives would be a good fat choice. If you're looking for carbs of which you only list raisins (the rest you list is protein and fat) then you could do baked sweet potato spears, roasted potato or other root veggie which along with fat would give you good staying power.

    a banana and hard boiled eggs for breakfast?

    Maybe this person has found a brand that is compliant? If the ingredients are fine then the product is fine. Or maybe they're using the term Sriracha to refer to hot sauce, many varieties of which can be found compliant.
  16. Sorry you're still not feeling well. Not sure what your 'calories are on point' means as we don't count calories here but if you are eating to the meal template then that's a good start. There shouldn't be anything about eating meat, veggies and fat that make your ears ring constantly so maybe it's something else that just happens to be going on at the same time as the Whole30? If you're very concerned, please go and see your doctor.

    W30 sushi compliant or swypo?

    @Jihanna did a great job explaining how each individual person may have some grey areas for SWYPO and Food Without Brakes. For something like sushi, you have to ask yourself if eating the compliant version is going to make you crave or obsess about the real thing... If you have an ongoing and deep love affair for sushi and you are in deep mourning for it these 30 days, that recipe may not be the best idea. If it's just another shape of veggies and protein on your plate and you could basically take it or leave it as far as sushi goes, then go for it!
  18. Your meals don't look too bad altho some of them are missing a plated fat entirely so you'd be well off to add fat to those meals such as the first one and the third one. Make sure you're salting your food to taste and drinking 1/2oz of water per pound of body weight and getting enough rest and you should start to feel bettter shortly. One thing to keep in mind is that if you're needing to snack because you can't go 4-5 hours between meals, then make your meals bigger altho adding that fat to each meal should help as well. If you have to snack while you get meal sizes sorted, go for protein and fat instead of fruit and nuts, dried fruit and nut butters
  19. Sorry you don't feel well It's not uncommon to not feel great in the first week but maybe if you give us a rundown of what you've been eating over the past few days we can see if anything stands out. Are you doing a vegan/vegetarian version of the program? The fact you think toast will solve the problem makes me think to ask if you're eating starchy carbs at at least one meal a day?

    Whole 30 compliant

    The silk one with the ingredients shown is compliant. As for the cough syrup, its likely not that which gave you a splitting headache - those usually come with cold and flu. It's definitely up to you whether you start over or not - some people depending on what day they're on just add a couple days to the end so if you were on Day 2 when the cold syrup happened, you could do a 'whole32' instead... makes it easier for some people to stomach starting over. We do have a 100% compliance policy for Whole30 but we're also not jerks that expect you to suffer with colds/flus/migraines etc... so as an adult, you get to make the choice of what medicines to take knowing that they're not usually compliant. Did that make sense? Hope you feel better soon!

    Preserves...

    Yep, as long as the ingredients are all compliant, this is fine. Using apricots or making ones own preserves for a recipe is also fine but some people don't have that kind of time or desire
  22. SugarcubeOD

    Whole 30 compliant

    The one that lists pea protein is out. I can't see the ingredients on the other one.
  23. Also this? Is it a recreation of flatbread with compliant ingredients?
  24. SugarcubeOD

    Organifi Superfoods powder?

    No sorry, the Monk fruit in them make them non compliant!
