    Help! Digestion problems...

    Just a hunch, from my own experience... I love pistachios, however I had to stop eating them because they cause me BIG TIME stomach issues. I also had issues moving from a low fat to high fat diet for the first few weeks in my first Whole30. Keep pushing through!

    Ideas for more fats?!

    I didn't make homemade mayo my first Whole30 and wow that was a mistake! I made a batch the first few days of my Whole45 (I'm on day 16) and it is AMAZING! I also make my own coconut butter to put on sweet potatoes, apples, squash, etc. Both are a big part of my fat intake!

    Best Pork Chop of your LIFE

    No problem slw600! Ingredients: 4 boneless pork chops (size can vary, if they are REALLY big add more of each below) 2-3 tbsp olive oil or ghee 2-3 tbsp apple cider vinegar 2-3 tbsp spicy brown mustard or dijon 2-3 tbsp coconut aminos (if not paleo/Whole30 sub soy sauce or tamari) 1 tbsp Frank's Red Hot (optional) 1/2-1 tbsp minced garlic salt and pepper Directions: Put pork chops into a 1 gallon ziploc bag and add all ingredients except salt and pepper. Mix well until the chops are all coated and place in refrigerator for at least 1 hour, up to 24 hours (mine was about 3 hours) When you are ready to cook them heat a tablespoon or two of ghee (clarified butter, coconut oil) in a large pan and heat over medium-high heat until shimmering Generously salt and pepper both sides of the chops and place them in the pan Cover with a lid and set timer for 5 minutes Once timer goes off, carefully flip them to sear the other side (be careful of hot oil!) for 5 minutes Once the timer goes off, remove the chops to a plate and tent tin foil over the top for 5 minutes or so to let the meat rest and stop the juices from flowing *** This last step is important because if you just cut into them all the tasty juices will run out and your chops with be dry, and like we discussed before, no one likes a dry chop! I like to plate the chops and then pour some of the juices back over the top for extra juiciness and flavor ENJOY!
