  1. Hey there gang! I've seen many folks talk about going to their local butcher for Whole30-compliant meats and sausages. My question is - do I just assume all meat there is good to go? Or do I still need to ask the butcher additional questions to ensure the meat is compliant? Is it silly to even ask a local butcher if their sausages contains sugar or preservatives? I mean obviously they don't, right? Or do they? I just have no idea about what is normal for butchers.
  2. I work remotely and often hunker down on Starbucks and Panera Bread to do work. On Whole30, this means a LOT of black iced coffee, which makes me jittery after a while. I did some research and good news - the Panera Bread Plum Ginger Hibiscus Tea is complaint! Detailed Ingredients Plum Ginger Hibiscus Tea (Nigerian Hibiscus, Apple Pieces, Sweet Blackberry Leaves, Rosehips, Natural Plum Flavor, Carob, Ginger). See at: I thought this was pretty cool considering a lot of Starbucks iced teas are not compliant. Unfortunately I can't find the other iced tea from Panera on the nutrition page (I think it was a Green Tea, but it definitely said unsweetened on the fountain dispenser at Panera, and online I only see reference to a sweetened iced green tea). It's just nice to know I can drink something there other than coffee. And water.
  3. I'm trying to put together a guide on Starbucks Do's and Dont's while on Whole30. Obviously lattes and the large majority of drinks are out. From what I can tell in research, prior to his year Starbucks used Taza Teas, and their teas (such as the Passion Tea) were compliant. However, now Starbucks used Teavana Teas. On the Starbucks nutrition facts website, the Passion Tango tea includes: An Infusion Of [Water, Hibiscus Flower, Cinnamon, Candied Papaya Pieces (Papaya, Sugar), Rose Hips, Apple Pieces, Lemongrass, Natural And Artificial Flavors, Blackberry Leaves, Candied Mango Pieces (Mango, Sugar), Rose Petals]. The majority of other herbal teas from Starbucks show something similar. Does this mean (with the infusion of candied fruit pieces) that basically none of Starbuck's herbal teas are compliant? So far it seems only black iced coffee, cold brew coffee, green tea, english breakfast tea, and mint tea are compliant.
