    Question about the gluten reintro -- the guide says to have whole wheat bread for lunch then whole wheat pasta for dinner -- is there a reason for the whole wheat? I'm unlikely to ever eat whole wheat pasta unless forced to . Regular pasta is more likely to make a reappearance in my diet down the road (not at home, but I do have a favorite restaurant that makes their pasta fresh).

    So I made this great breakfast of leftover cooked veges with three beaten eggs and showed off my beautiful creation still in the pan to my partner and instead of telling me how great it looked I got.... thats a lot to eat for breakfast!!!
    Was so tempted to say yeah right, 350 calories of healthy unprocessed food is bad for breakfast but your two weetbix with milk and muesli on top is the better meal? Hmmmph!

    That whole 'when you're fun again' thing really irks me... I'm accused of not being 'fun' all the time... I, actually, am a blast. the 'fun' that is being referred to is that the other person wants to indulge in whatever (cake, booze) and they don't want to feel judged for it (not that you're judging... that's all on them for how they feel).
    Also, LOL at the 'main part for the most part'. Uh, booze is one of the MAIN PARTS! LOL!

    mulay's is the best! and they have great customer service - i was unable to find them at any of my local whole foods, so i contacted customer service and they called all the whole foods in my neighborhood, told me where i could find them, and then put me in contact with the manager at the location so i could let him know which flavors where my favorite to keep in stock.
     
    chorizo and italian sausage. amaaaaazing.

    I thought to post this shot of my breakfast prep this morning.  On the weekend I diced 5 bell peppers, 3# green beans, a bunch of steamed potatoes and some ham (note, the ham is not compliant but I am not on Whole30).  Now in the morning I just throw a handful of each into a frying pan with some fat, go blowdry my hair and pour a coffee and breakfast cooks itself.  Wash out one frying pan when the food has been plated and you're done!
     

     
    Note: the ham is non compliant but you could do the same with cooked chicken, cooked ground pork/beef, chopped roast, chopped pork chops etc.  Repeat, the ham is not compliant.

    It's possible to buy oil misters that allow you to turn compliant oils into a non-stick spray. I have an oil mister filled with avocado oil that I use to spray casserole dishes.

    Yes that is correct. Just to further clarify on day 4 legumes is the only non-Whole30 item you have. On day 7 alcohol is the only non-Whole30 item you have. In other words you don't have dairy (or legumes or alcohol) again (even if you are fine with it) until all your reintroductions are complete.

    We as moderators see a lot of confusion around here on what constitutes a serving of eggs when eggs are your primary protein source. We tell you as many as you can hold in your hand without dropping but I still don't think people actually try this. So I thought I'd post a visual for you folks. It would be fun if other people added their own pictures too. Try the experiment.
