    Figuring out Meal 1 timing

    I had a handful of soaked walnuts this morning and it did help. But is that a no-no?

    Figuring out Meal 1 timing

    I like the idea of the hard boiled egg. I will give it a shot. My stomach is often a bit queasy in the mornings, so eggs don't always sit well. I think part of what threw me off was the caffeine ratio in my coffee. I usually do a 3:1 ratio of decaf to caffeinated coffee, and it was slightly off this morning. I think drinking it black didn't give me that cushion and it just went straight into me. So I'm going to cut back on the caffeine and add in the egg. Honestly, in looking at the egg post pinned to the top, I should be eating more than the 2 eggs I had in my egg cup muffin thingies. So a 3rd egg will be good.

    Figuring out Meal 1 timing

    Today is day 1 of my Whole30, and I ran into a bit of a problem. I wake very early in the mornings (5 am), but I usually don't eat until 8:30 because of getting my family ready and fed. This hasn't been such a problem in the past because I usually put sweetened vanilla almond milk in my coffee which cuts it a bit and gives me a sugar boost. (I know, I know.) This morning, without that, I found myself shaky and feeling a bit hypoglycemic. I thought about having a banana or something with my coffee, but does that kind of defeat the idea of breaking the sugary habit? I don't want to eat right when I get up because my lunch and dinner times are at regular times and a very, very early breakfast would leave me shaky and sick at work before breakfast. Any ideas on what I can do to get over this hump in the mornings?

    Whole30 Compliant Lox

    There is an Aldi close to my house. I will see if the US one is compliant as well. Thanks!

    Whole30 Compliant Lox

    Ah, thanks for the search term tips! I was hoping I could find something that would be good over my eggs with breakfast. I thought lox and avocado would make a nice combo with the eggs. But ouch. Not sure I can afford WF.

    Whole30 Compliant Lox

    Okay, I tried to search this, but because lox is only three letters the search engine errored out! Has anyone found a Whole30 compliant lox? All of the lox in my grocery store had sugar in it. So disappointing. Why do we need to put sugar in every little thing? Anyway, if anyone has found lox that is compliant, can you let me know? Thanks!
