    Pre/Post-Workout Meal Suggestions?

    jerky (if compliant) & carrots are good but raw veggies might be hard on the stomach, I would prefer cooked if it were me. I also eat steak, thinly sliced or salmon or tuna burger (without almond meal) with potato would work well. Starch isn't absolutely necessary but the protein is.

    Mayo Fail :( Discouraged, please help!

    I've had 2 in a row fail on me then the rest perfect ever since. Sometimes it just happens and you make dressing out of failed mayonnaise!

    Olive Oil Confusion

    I think its a matter of taste, if your olive oil is a strong taste then you mayo will have a strong taste. I use light-tasting olive oil which works great for me.

    pre-workout foods?

    You might have been fine last week and its catching up on you (cumulative effect). A preWO snack is just before the workout, I usually eat it within 1 hour before and consists of protein & fat, a boiled egg works well or chicken & mayo or avocado. A postWO snack is the most important out of the 2, that should be protein & starchy carb, like chicken & sweet potato, no fat. Don't eat fruit before or after, I say that because lots of people want to eat fruit and you don't want to feed your body sugar, you are training it to be fat adapted. The postWO snack should be eaten right after your workout and it only has to be a few bites, so as soon as your done at the gym, or in the car, before your shower, something like that but usually within 1 hour. Then you eat your full breakfast, it can be shortly later, that's fine. Make sure both of these snacks (they are not meals) are in addition to your 3 template meals. A moderator might have some other suggestions. BYI, make sure you are drinking the recommended amount of water & taking in enough salt, that can also effect your energy. Hope that helps!

    Yeast Extract in organic chicken stock?

    I have never found compliant chicken broth (I'm in Canada), so if I don't have time to make my own, I can always find compliant vegetable broth and then I add my chicken to it and everything else. Not sure what your making though.
  7. You find a bottle of kombucha hidden at the back of your fridge and suddenly its a great day!

    Compliant Coffee Creamer!!

    If you can find Real Thai coconut milk in the carton, it doesn't have any additives at all and it mixes with coffee very easily and stays mixed, especially with a milk frother (my new favorite toy).
  9. ... they are proud as a mother hen when all their food prep for the week is done! ... they curse the food companies for adding sugar to EVERYTHING! ... they pass the treats at work without a glance! ... they always get a thrill when the mayo turns out!

    Let's talk (non-traditional) breakfasts

    My favorite combination right now for breakfast hash is: lean ground beef, butternut squash, kale and mushrooms. I also add salt & pepper, coconut milk & green curry paste and add ghee for added fat. If I have time I will have it with a couple sunny side up eggs on top. The runny yolk tastes absolutely delish over the breakfast hash.

    Failed Mayo 101

    Sea Level??? Maybe you are whipping the egg too much and it is separating?

    Failed Mayo 101

    I have used the exact recipe from Well Fed with a food processor on medium low. I have always used the slow drizzle method with room temperature eggs with success, I haven't tried an immersion blender with cold eggs yet. I am happy with using what works for me! You should also know that once you put the mayo in the fridge it will firm up a bit more. The 2 oils that I have used with success are "Chosen Foods" avocado oil from Costco and "Bertolli" mild light tasting olive oil from Walmart. I am in Canada so hopefully you can find the same brands from the same places in the U.S. Good luck! I should note that I never mix oils, I just use one or the other!

    The crazy things people say

    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.

    Organic Rice Concentrate

    I know this is probably non-compliant but I thought I would double check. I bought Simply Organic brand chili powder and this is in the list of ingredients. Can someone please confirm it's not allowed. Thanks.
