  1. As for the MSG thing. It seems in all the years I have been aware of the Whole30, very minimal changes have ever been made. She started labeling Lara bars and Rx bars as only partially compliant aka emergency food only because they are easily food without breaks for most people and easily trigger the sugar dragon. She also totally nixed plantain chips which honeslty made me sad because I love plantain chips and homemeade guacamole. As for add ins. I think MSG and white potatoes are all I have ever seen her add back in as okay. Anywho. It appears things are not don
  2. I tried the one I had. It was a “glucose syrup” or something on the ingredients list. It didn’t do anything more than chomping on the ice did. So I will stick to the ice at this point. I work in a hospital and hafta go back to work tomorrow so I’m currently sitting in an instacare for a rapid strep and covid test. As long as it’s not covid I will go to work. I’m 99% sure it’s not but I need to play it safe. I’m so over covid. I wish we could just go back to ignoring our colds My goal for today is to eat something. I haven’t eaten in about 24 hours. Worst case scenario I will
  3. I found this on the Whole30 page….. And if it’s a matter of taking the Nyquil and sleeping through the night, or sticking to the Whole30 and being miserable, well… sweet dreams. (We’re pretty sure no one sips Nyquil for the sugar hit.) nowhere in the article does it say you need to start over either. I think I will try one lozenge and if it works miracles I will sneak another one or two in until I can get to the store to find sugar free ones. there hasta be sugar free ones. The article also listed some herbal teas and stuff that are approved. So I will look for those.
  4. My throat is not happy this morning. Being sick is stupid. What are your thoughts on throat lozenges with sugar in them? I’m currently sucking on ice and it’s just not cutting it. I have two different kinds but of course both have sugar. I mean it’s not like I’m popping Candy. They are menthol and don’t taste good at all even with the added sugar I feel like there should be an exception for these things but at the same time I’m betting there isn’t. I’m guessing I need to stick to the ice.
  5. Well shyte. I’m sick. My youngest was sick last week. Covid negative. I now have the same symptoms he did. Yay me!! No wonder I have felt so run down. This stupid thing was brewing. I tend to not take care of myself when I’m sick though. I mean I’m a mom. So today I still cleaned the whole house. Toilets and all. Meal prepped a little bit of meat and fed my family. I didn’t eat much at all today but I’m ready for tomorrow if my appetite is back. Now I’m lying in bed praying my body isn’t too angry tomorrow. hahaha. I just proofread my post. I promise I washed my hands betwe
  6. I signed up for daily Whole30 text messages when I started. They are promoted as being daily encouragement from Melissa herself. Of course they are computer/auto generated but they are nice to get. The one today made me laugh and feel better about life. If you don’t get them, here it is. “Whole30 Day 14! Hey, are you doing the PERFECT Whole30? No? Good, because it DOESN'T EXIST. Not every meal will be a colorful rainbow. Snacks will happen. Over-eating almond butter might happen. If you're me, microwaving Whole30 Approved hot dogs and eating them with my bare hands happens like once a we
  7. I finally made it to the store!!!! I didn’t get any actual cooking done today but I will do a bunch tomorrow. Tonight for dinner I just ate one of the approved primal kitchen frozen meals. It was actually pretty good! A bit on the spicy side for me but still good. I do have to say though that if I was ever in a place where I was starving I might need to add some extra veggies to it. The serving is pretty small. But I can’t complain with the fact that it was super easy after a day of not having energy to do much of anything.
  8. Day 13 for me and I am TIRED!!! No energy and no desire to do anything. It could be because I worked out twice on Thursday and my multiple sclerosis is mad, or it’s because I need to be eating more but I am not hungry. My appetite is nearly non existent. Heading to the grocery store here in a few and I’m going to meal prep better this week. My goal is to really work on three meals a day that are in line with the template instead of just randomly eating approved foods. No feed back from me on the possible swypo items that have been discussed because I myself have searched an
  9. I know smoothies are not encouraged, but when I still havent made it to the store…. It was my go to for breakfast today. Fruit (strawberries and banana) veggies (a handful of kale and spinach) healthy fat (almond butter) and protein (collagen powder) all blended into a thick smoothie. Now to get to the store!! Breakfast is the hardest for me. What are your favorite NO EGG breakfasts??
  10. I really wanna get on a scale. I feel so much lighter already but I know in the grand scheme of things that’s not important. It’s still a hard mindset to change.
  11. I’m with you on the need to meal prep. I am the worst about just doing Whole30 on the fly and when I do that I am not amazing at sticking to the template. My food intake is always compliant, just not always in the plate template they suggest. I hope to plan out some meals for the next week tonight and get to the store tomorrow. I for sure plan on making the BLT salad I shared with you guys yesterday and maybe a Zuppa Tuscano soup as well.
  12. Oh and here is one of my most FAVORITE things to eat!! Both on and off Whole30. I found it during my first round. https://soletshangout.com/blt-breakfast-salad-with-soft-boiled-eggs-avocado/
  13. Im already dreaming of cheating with sugar cookies!! That’s not supposed to happen until later!! It was one of those dream where you wake up relieved that you are actually still on track and it was just a dream.
  14. Just wrapping up day 9 over here and doing pretty good. My boyfriend ordered enough food to feed five people from a local Brazilian restaurant and ate that while I ate my compliant steak and veggies for dinner. His food smelled AMAZING but I wasn’t sure how it was prepared and there were a lot of breaded and deep fried things involved so I just steered clear. My only current issue…..My right leg is ACHY!!! My hip, my pelvis and all down into my thigh. Just the right side. I have not done anything that would have injured it so I have no idea what it’s about. It could be related to my
  15. Im on day 9 and still doing well. I already feel so much less bloated and uncomfortable. Only downer is my energy is low. Can’t wait for that to bump up a little. How are you doing??
