  1. Yep. Just drink water.

    I actually really like a variety of herbal teas but I haven't really had a milky brew since my first w30 in May 2014. I thought it'd be the first thing I went back to, but it wasn't as good as I remembered. And I feel better when I don't consume dairy.

    So yep. Stick with the water.

    If you want to investigate herbal tea my current favourites are earl grey rooibos, Taylor's sweet rhubarb, a pukka herbal chai and twinings lime and ginger.

  2. The trickiest thing I've struggled to find compliant here is mustard, especially dijon. The Co-op do a compliant dijon and wholegrain mustard but they are the only ones I've found.


    The Waitrose Cook's ingredients coconut milk (with a blue label) is the best flavoured of all the compliant coconut milks (some are compliant but have the carboxy methyl cellulose in which I think tastes icky). Morrisons also do compliant coconut milk pouches - own brand. 


    I buy coconut aminos on Amazon.


    I do most of my shopping in Lidl and get compliant smoked salmon and bacon there - just the basic stuff. They also do a proscuitto style ham which is compliant. Fruit/ veg/ raw meats are all great and as others have said compliant tinned tomatoes, passata, puree as well as fish -  tuna, salmon, sardines etc are very easy to find anywhere. 


    Tesco do some compliant cornichons/ gherkins. Olives are easy to find.


    Mattheson's smoked pork sausage is compliant. I was astounded by this as it's always been seen as emergency/ camping/ barely food. But it is compliant, if not exactly the most organic grass reared protein source on earth. It is also shelf stable and doesn't need to be refrigerated. It's filling protein and good in a pinch.

  3. I'm not sure if this is breakfast, or more of a brunch, since I slept later than usual, but this is what I had for my first meal today:




    Elvis burger (hamburger patty topped with almond butter, banana, and bacon), collard greens, and sweet potatoes (yes, they were slightly burnt. One of these days I'll learn to set a timer).

    How I love those Elvis burgers. On this week's menu I think.
