    kruddock got a reaction from STACEYRAE46 in 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).

    It is day 28 for me and I could have easily caved since this is not my first Whole30 and I am so close to the end. We celebrated a birthday for our manager today and went out for lunch and there was a cake ordered from a special bakery.  I ordered a plain big green salad with grilled salmon seasoned with only salt & pepper and brought my own dressing. I put a piece of the cake in the freezer for a day when I feel like trying it. I only drank water, no wine, I felt totally in control and not the least bit deprived and no cravings to speak of, I am having a good Whole30 Day!

    kruddock got a reaction from CaseyLee in 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!

    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.

    kruddock got a reaction from life love laughter in 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!

    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.

    SUCCESS! Finally! Thank you all for telling me to keep trying. I followed Ladyshanny's method and dumped it all in, at room temp, using Bertolli Extra Light oil, and it actually worked! And I love it. Now I see what all the fuss was about and I don't even like mayo but I licked the spatula on this one. As Gomer Pyle used to say, "Thank, thank you, thank you!"

    I am on day 32 into the slow intro and I went out for a coworker's birthday lunch today. I chose a meal of pan seared halibut, asparagus, fingerling potatoes & red pepper. I asked what it was cooked in and asked them to use olive oil instead of butter. I think my taste buds are much improved because I could taste the olive oil. It felt good to make that choice and nobody looked at me weird! Best of all, I didn't have that sleepy, full feeling all afternoon!!

    You're doing everything you can to set yourself up for continued success.   The days after a Whole 30 can be the most perilous of times or a great learning experience.  Nice job listening to yourself, Kruddock!
