    JulieP757 got a reaction from Ktaylor3 in W30 Bacon   
    I found Pederson's sugar free bacon in Harris Teeter and it's surprisingly good - super expensive though.  I've purchased some before at US Wellness online and thought it was yucky.  Hope you find some you like.

    Ya, my brother is fat-phobic.  He eats toast with jelly but not butter ... does soy "chicken" ... eats low-fat Cheez-Its crackers ... etc.

    Another question: Why are people more concerned about what we eat when we're eating healthy? If I showed up at work in the morning with McDonalds breakfast with a soda, had Taco Bell for lunch with a soda, and then pizza for dinner - complained of a headache the next day - not a single person would mention that maybe its due to the food that I ate the prior day. But if I eat Whole30 and then complain of a headache - people are concerned that I may be missing out on a nutrient or something.

    My very overweight, very unhealthy, lives on fast food neighbor last night:
    I've learned that as long as you take a multi-vitamin, you can eat anything you want including fast food because the vitamin gives your body the means to deal with the toxins. The problems come when you eat the junk and DON"T take a multi-vitamin.
    I was dumbfounded.

    My mother told me this afternoon that food allergies are just a fashionable thing to have, like autism
    I have aspergers...and a wheat allergy.

    I was at a health food store looking at Vitamin B supplements. One of the ingredients was sorbitol, of all things. When I asked someone who worked there why they have to put sorbitol in a vitamin that you swallow, they said not to worry its a "good kind" of sorbitol.

    My mother asked me this morning if I was having my cholesterol checked...apparently now I'm not able to eat wheat my cholesterol must be soaring (I haven't told her about the ghee, the homemade Mayo or that I don't eat other grains either!)
    As if I don't have enough health wise to worry about just how...and no, I'm not having it checked...

    JulieP757 got a reaction from Zyriel in Organic Caramel Color - Beef Broth   
    I think it's a fancy name for sugar - sorry!
     
    According to the Food and Drug Administration's Code of Federal Regulations carbohydrates that may be used to produce caramel color are dextrose, invert sugar, lactose, malt syrup, molasses, starch hydrolysates (such as glucose syrup) and fractions thereof, and sucrose.

    I'm sure they've changed it up a bit, you can never rely on the stock... I'm in Germany right now and I think there is one pouched tuna in oil (but I don't know if its olive oil) and the others all have seasonings that are non-compliant. All of the typical canned brands have soy, but the canned in olive oil doesn't so that's what I use. The salad bar does come in handy, plus the ready to go small containers of olives I found!

    Good food is my #1 expense.  It is about priorities  I don't eat out much, so there are savings there.

    Heh. Although I agree that most IHOP food is not what I'm really interested in eating, I do end up there sometimes.  This may help you figure out how to navigate their menu so that you can sit with the BF and eat something:
     
    http://www.glutenfreegigi.com/how-to-eat-gluten-free-at-ihop/
     
    The summary is that they will crack shell eggs for you, which are far less adulterated than the mix (including pancake batter) they usually use for omelettes.  They use butter for cooking and Pam on their cooking surfaces, which is why all their foods say that they have soy in them -- Pam contains soy lecithin.  But I'm pretty sure they will dry-cook instead, and that at least some of their veggies can be steamed rather than cooked in others stuff.  They also often have baked potatoes.  Might take some research, but I bet you can get a compliant meal there.
     
    ThyPeace, has had to eat out a LOT the last few months.
