    not possible

    There's a recipe for egg-less mayo in one of the Whole 30 books that involves, I think, coconut butter. And this one: (Although flax seeds may be hard on digestion, depending.) Have you seen the shopping list: Cross off what you can't eat, you should still have plenty of options. It's also not a comprehensive list of all possible foods, so add whatever. I second the soup idea mentioned above!

    Day 23

    Since you eat other sources of meat, you can eat chicken or fish in the morning.....doesn't have to be only eggs. Something like: (Yes it has 3 total eggs spread out over 4-5 servings.....leave out the optional goat cheese, double check any sauce ingredients) would be quick to re-heat up. Also take a look and make sure you're adding fat to the meals....hard to say with the way you've written it out.

    Trader Joe’s pesto?

    From: Safflower/Sunflower Oil: Yes While we don’t think vegetable oils are a healthy choice (understatement of the century), we don’t expressly rule them out on the Whole30. If we did, you’d never be able to eat outside of your own kitchen, because all restaurants use them in cooking. We wanted to create the healthiest program possible, but we also need it to be do-able for those who travel for business or pleasure, or simply want to dine out during the month. Ideally, you’re using high-oleic safflower or sunflower oil; these actually have a pretty favorable fat profile, similar to extra-virgin olive oil. _______________________________ I've seen on the forums a bunch where people say it HAS to be high-oleic for home use, but according to the website it's just IDEALLY. Side note: I love that pesto!
  4. Phytates and anti-nutrients
  5. I've never seen anything in any of the books or on the website that even remotely sounds like that.

    Round Two of Whole30 starting August 4th. Anyone with me??

    Ah, yeah, the template could be phrased better.

    Round Two of Whole30 starting August 4th. Anyone with me??

    @wp3 How are you coming up with 1700 calories from fat per meal? If I model 1-2 heaping handfuls of, say, olives as a can of olives, that's like 250-300 calories. If I call 2 thumb sized portions of olive oil as about 3 Tablespoons, that's about 350 calories....

    Heart Rate Spike

    How are sleep and stress? If I don't get enough sleep, my resting heart rate in the morning is noticeably up. And caffeine consumption from the day before also seems to affect me.

    You can try something like:

    Whole30-Approved, Freeze-Dried Meal

    It looks like Wild Zora had recently taken over Paleo Meals to Go and then created some new flavors as well. This has been really handy for me, thanks - I'm about to go on a backpacking trip and although not currently whole30, I'm always GF. I often make my own meals but am feeling far too time crunched to do it this time around. However, you save TONS making your own meals, plus can make exactly what you like.
  11. Check the ingredients to your nuun tablets! Most of those have sweeteners as far as I know!

    Whole30-Approved, Freeze-Dried Meal

    Thanks for following up with that info!
  13. If you've got an underlying medical condition, there'd be nothing wrong with eating 4 smaller meals a day. Skip all the nuts and fruit, just add in another meal that also has protein, veggies, and some fats.

    Problems with Planning/Prepping

    Also, if everyone was hungry to the point of anger after 1.5 days, check portions and the template. It's easy to under eat at first. A lot of recommendations include making sure there's fats and maybe some starchy carbs. And you can do it!

    Is ghee an acquired taste?

    Some brands are different. I tried the Trader Joe's version once and did not like it. I had one from Whole Foods that was better but still meh. Then I tried making my own clarified butter from Mel Joulwan's Well Fed 2 cookbook recipe and blammo! The best.
