    A Canadian far from home, I’m currently living the expatriate life in Ulsan, South Korea. I’m not letting that stop me from pursuing my fitness & nutrition goals, and I invite you to join me on my adventures both in and out of the kitchen as I pursue my passions for fitness and nutrition while enjoying the best of southeast Asia’s recreational, gastronomic, and cultural opportunities!

    You know someone is doing a Whole30 when...

    Just from my perspective, I'm looking for a convenient, portable lean protein source other than egg whites or chicken. The fattier fish/seafood you mention doesn't work.

    What type of sprouts are best

    Yep, sprouts only. Not the bean (but I know what you mean about the little bit that still resembles a bean at the end - I live in Asia!).

    Making myself like hard boiled eggs?

    You don't HAVE to like them (although you've got lots of great suggestions to try). How about canned sardines as a comparable convenient, on-the-go protein/fat combo? Some beef jerkies (check the label carefully for compliance) might also do the trick.

    The crazy things people say

    I had to dig this post up from 2.5 years ago - there's eerily some truth to it. Re: eggs =/= dairy - I don't think that you can be too harsh on people. The food pyramid (great bastion of the SAD diet and taught in most, if not all, North American public schools) has eggs in the dairy quadrant (or band of the "rainbow" in the new scheme), along with milk, cheese, butter, yogurt, etc. Not sure why. Would make more sense in the "meats & alternatives" where they have the fish, tofu, beans and legumes. Fascinating reading on the "marketing" of the food pyramid (and myriad other subjects) is in Michael Pollan's "In Defense of Food: An Eater's Manifesto." He certainly points out how little "real food" there is in grocery and supermarkets these days. Cheers, -Lauren (GGG)

    I can't find answers on most of these ingredients

    Thanks, Tom. Can you explain your position on the vegetable glycerin? If it's compliant for the Whole30 then I might not have to search for a new B-vitamin complex (which I take for energy support and hopefully can discontinue when I hit the "Tiger Blood" stage). Cheers, -Lauren (GGG)
