    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!

    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.

    Is this question for me? I have eaten for 2 meals once during my Whole30.
     
    I normally have eggs for breakfast, chicken or fish for lunch and lamb or beef for dinner.
     
    On Monday however, I had eggs for breakfast and then got home and realised I wanted eggs for dinner as well, rather than the chilli I had made.
     
    On Tuesday, I had chilli for breakfast.

    Can you build a pyramid with the eggs?

    We as moderators see a lot of confusion around here on what constitutes a serving of eggs when eggs are your primary protein source. We tell you as many as you can hold in your hand without dropping but I still don't think people actually try this. So I thought I'd post a visual for you folks. It would be fun if other people added their own pictures too. Try the experiment.
     
    Context - I'm 5'4" female and these are large eggs.

    For anyone who travels through Melbourne near Flinders St station, there is an organics store there now called Habib Wholefoods. Bit expensive, some things are vegan/soy/sugary/agave but lots of organic things, including Mojo Komboucha, meat and dairy (if you can have it).
     
    [Edit: pass on the non-chicken meat, although it's organic, the red meat is ALL grain fed  
     
    Things I buy from Habib's:
     
    Isola Bio Coconut Cream in a tiny (expensive) 200ml mini-tetra pack 
    http://www.bio4you.eu/en/toiduained/1070-coconut-cream-200g-isola-bio.html - beware the similar looking Isola Coconut Rice drink which comes in a larger size, it's not the same product but the box looks very similar.
    This one thickens up USA-style in the fridge! (as it has guar gum in it)
    Perfect for using as a fluffy "whipped cream" - but I actually buy it because it's a sealed portable coconut serve I can keep in my bag for coffee in cafes - 100ml is about a serve for me, so I use half and then put the leftover half in the fridge. It's hard to pour if cold (need to squeeze it out like toothpaste), so don't fridge it before you open it unless you want whipped cream.
     
    Loving Earth products - very expensive, but good if you're caught short.
     
    Mojo Komboucha
     
    Organic veggies - watch the labels, not everything fresh is organic, the berries rarely are.

    The odd gluten-free treat, but most of these have too many dates/sugars for me.

    Avoid: Most of the fresh salads are gluten free, but almost all of them contain soy, tofu, sugars and either beans or pseudo-grains. There also are many complaints that the salads are v expensive by weight (they're all pretty heavy/wet salads, not light ones).
     
    The stocking levels are strange in this store, don't wait to buy something, if it runs out, it may be gone for weeks. ]
