  1. Are water chestnuts compliant?

    Nutritional yeast?

    Could I please have the recipe for the Cashew "cheese" sauce?

    Yes, MissMary, I think I'm beginning to get it, finally. I hope that I can continue without these temptations and just think of them for post-whole30. So far I have been drinking my coffee black (blech) and not using the yonannas. But at least the idea of those treats, knowing that I can have them without challenging Paleo, is comforting.

    Yes, it does and I do understand. Last week I had the 'yonannas' just once and the coco creamer twice. I was afraid it would lead to an everyday addiction, but somehow I managed to limit them to just the weekend. Maybe because I'm so busy during the week, who knows? I think if I can look forward to an occasional treat, it will help me. However, if it becomes out of control, then I have a problem. For example, I know better than to make paleo brownies - there is no way I could limit them. I'll try the once a week system again this week - I think it could be a good way to bring 'kosher' treats into a permanent way of eating, without having to indulge constantly. What do you think? Also - I am confused about Ghee. I thought dairy was out, yet many on these threads use Ghee in their cooking. Is it compliant with the Whole30? (ps day 11 now and going strong!!)

    What does Ghee actually taste like?

    Is Ghee permitted on the Whole30? I thought it was supposed to be dairy free.

    Substitute for Gum/Breath Freshener

    What about Colgate Plax, non-alchohol? My dentist recommended it, but it seems to contain a lot suspicious ingredients.

    Thanks, Robin. I'm definitely one of those people who go for 'sweet, creamy caffeine' and have valiantly been drinking my coffees black for the 10 days I've been on Whole30 so far. However, I haven't really liked it. I have 2 coffees a day - one in early AM and one at noon. What I'd like to do is add the creamer to the 1st coffee and drink the 2nd one black. I can't see the problem with dates, at least the little bit that would be involved in one serving of this 'creamer'. Another thing I wanted to check was something new I've discovered called 'Yonannas'. It's a machine that takes frozen fruit (with banannas as the base) and somehow shmushes it all up, resulting in a very yummy ice cream-like treat. I know it's better to just eat plain fruit, but this is really delicious and has no additives at all. I was hoping to be able to have this once or twice a week. OK, you can hear that I am an arch sweet toother, but it's been such a big step for me to give up my sweets, including Xylitol. I'm not going to go in the direction of Paleo brownies (yum!) etc during the Whole 30, but I can't see what the problem would be to have a bit of Yonannas 'ice cream' a few times a week. Advice?

    Hi - I'm struggling with black coffee and can't stand coconut milk or almond milk in my drink. I found this recipe on a Paleo website - is it compliant? Ingredients 1 Can full fat coconut milk 3-4 Medjol Dates ( Pits removed) more if you want it sweeter 1 T. Vanilla beans scrapings Cooking Steps Optional Add-Ins: -Cinnamon -Pumpkin Pie Spice -Orange Zest -Unsweetened Cocoa Powder 1. Add the dates, vanilla bean seeds/scrapings plus 1T. hot water to a blender and puree until smooth(ish). 2. Add 1/4 of the can of coconut milk and blend until smooth (it's near impossible to create a completely smooth puree, so just be ok with the speckles of date). 3. Add the remaining 3/4 can of coconut milk and blend. 4. Transfer mixture to a container and transfer to the fridge until ready to use. Once refrigerated, the mixture will set to a whip cream-like consistency. Use as creamer or a topping for sliced berries.
