    I am not a fan of this vegetable, normally. This recipe changed my view of this nutritious food forever. Enjoy!

    Good call. Jason Seib (of Everyday Paleo) has trademarked the following quote: "Healthy by choice. Hot by accident." He contends (and is right) that if you want LASTING positive body composition changes, you MUST go through HEALTH to get there.

    Another former vegetarian here. ISFW didn't convert me, but it did help me slay my sugar dragon. Even Bob Harper, once vegan, has started eating a more Paleo diet (Google it, if you need confirmation).

    Tricks to the Olive Oil Mayo in ISWF...
    It's not specified, but make sure the eggs and lemon juice are mixed in Step 1 when coming to room temperature. I've not broken the eggs before and had bad batches that way.
    The oil needs to go in SUPER slow (at first). I don't know if it's kosher, but I went to Autozone and bought a funnel for oil. It has a twisty bottom that lets you control the flow (even so far as to close it so nothing comes out). I let the bottom sit in the open top of my Kitchenaid Food Processor and let it do it's thing SLOWLY. Like ~5 mins for my 2 cups of ELTOO (I double batch) to all drain in.

    Bought an immersion blender this weekend. That thing is MAGIC! No lines, no waiting when you make mayo with this thing. So easy. So thick. So creamy.

    I just put mine whole in the slow cooker, no holes and no water. Susan taught me. Comes out great when I have the presence of mind to not let it sit on the warm cycle for too long.

    Kept myself amused this evening reading everyone's reviews and comments, and adding mine.  One 5-star review by a guy who probably wrote the book, because his other reviews are all for knock-off stuff as well, one 4-star review from a woman who did a Whole30, thinks the recipes are fine for afterwards, and that the ISWF people need to 'lighten up'.  and 150 1-star reviews from all of us!  fun.

    Nico, I could but would probably have to pay shipping which is no big deal. Actually, I could call Amazon and pitch a fit about the fraudulent words of the connection with W30 and I am sure Amazon would send me a mailing label. I am a very good customer of theirs.

    Whoa! I didn't want to get anyone in trouble... but the truth is the truth. There is so much stuff out there... I didn't think it was compliant. But as I'm learning to navigate, and then see something like that... It gets a little confusing.
    Have to say I'm getting better at recognizing recipes that are whole30 approved (at least I hope!!)

    Ugh.  Here's the description on Amazon:

    "It Starts With Food by Dallas and Melissa Hartwig was named one of the top 50 health books by the Huffington Post in September 2012, and for a good reason; this book is responsible for changing the lives of it's readers. If you have not read it yet, we highly recommend that you do.
    Those who choose to apply the program laid out in the book have reported the elimination of a wide variety of symptoms, diseases and ailments in just 30 days. Here is a list of just some of the symptoms people have reported relief from:

    diabetes · high cholesterol · high blood pressure · obesity · acne · eczema · psoriasis · hives asthma · allergies · sinus infections · migraines · acid reflux · celiac disease · Crohn's · IBS bipolar disorder · depression · seasonal affective disorder · eating disorders · ADHD endometriosis · PCOS · infertility · arthritis · Lyme disease · hypothyroidism · fibromyalgia

    We designed this cookbook to support those who are on the "It Starts With Food Whole 30†program, and for anyone who believes in the benefits of eating whole foods and avoiding processed foods and sugars. We hope you enjoy these recipes as much as we do!"

    I vote we get the forum members out in force and flood the product with reviews letting people know it's anything BUT W30 compliant. Mine will be a 1-star review, is all I can say. ;-)

    To the point where I bought a stick/immersion blender, paid the price for avocado oil, followed the guidelines in the cookbook Well Fed (that differed from the video on the clothes make the girl- same author) added the extra yolk, as per someone's advice and was finally successful.
