    I buy TCC coconut milk from woolworths for $1.50, it has only one additive, citric acid. I pour it into a Tupperware shake container and keep it in the fridge and give it a quick shake before use... I buy chicken thighs to use for my soups. I cut some of the meat off to pan fry and cook the rest with carrot sand beans in water until the meat falls off the bone.

    What A Serving of Eggs Looks Like

    Since our stomach fills up by volume, it makes more sense to use volume than weight. Veg is 1-2 cups per meal. You could think of a cup of veg as what you can fit into two hands cupped together if that works for you. Good luck.

    Whole30 approved almond milk?

    You can still get compliant coconut milk that has additives, most have an antioxidant and a thickener - some of these are okay.. You need to check against the list. My brand TCC just has citric acid as an antioxidant.

    What A Serving of Eggs Looks Like

    So I made this great breakfast of leftover cooked veges with three beaten eggs and showed off my beautiful creation still in the pan to my partner and instead of telling me how great it looked I got.... thats a lot to eat for breakfast!!! Was so tempted to say yeah right, 350 calories of healthy unprocessed food is bad for breakfast but your two weetbix with milk and muesli on top is the better meal? Hmmmph!

    The crazy things people say

    I think a whole30 helps most people (but not everyone... There are some genuine situations it can aggravate) but it is not magic and for many people it is part of the answer but not the complete answer. Hence the whole9 philosophy of what else to do to improve your health.

    Okay... I hate getting told I eat "special food" or have special dietary requirements. I don't eat special food, I eat real food! Plain meat, fish, vegetables, fruits, nuts and eggs!

    I went out to lunch for dumplings with my new boss and 5 others (we restructured but same people). I don't usually waste my time/money eating out as my own food is nicer so this was the first time I joined their weekly event. I ordered plain cooked Chinese broccoli (to share) everyone else had dumplings. After a while there was a collective gasp from the others as my boss reached for the broccoli. "We've never seen you eat a vegetable before" was the comment..... Hmmmm

    " You eat that for breakfast?" After I have mentioned i dont eat grains and dairy and they ask me what I have for brekky... I'm like well if I don't eat grains and dairy then my first meal is the same as lunch or dinner, meat and vegetables. In my mind....duh!

    I always go there when I am in the city... I must check out the kombucha, is it expensive? What happens to the coconut cream after a few days with the probiotic? Does it get tangy? Change texture? Or! I'm interested but I don't think I can tolerate much coconut cream and may not want a reason to eat more, then again maybe the probiotic makes it easier to digest.... Struggling right now and can't figure if its the cauli rice, cashews or too much protein..... Aarg.

    Changes in Menstrual Cycle

    I reread your other post Karen, very good! And also explained why I now seem to get the night sweats a day or two before my now natural cycle starts

    Changes in Menstrual Cycle

    One of the success factors of my whole30ing was re establishing my cycle after stopping BC. Had about 8 months straight of quite regular cycles after none for 14 months then only two in the subsequent six months before my first whole 30. Then the last couple of months I have been doing whole 30 s with and without coffee for a few weeks. Last cycle was 9 days! late and this one has just come 8 days early... What the???
