    Hey guys! Hello day 2!! Looking for a clarification from a moderator regarding making our own grain free granola. Being an athlete having a PWO meal or something to eat during race events is important. Date syrup (DATE LADY brand) I know is a very "walking the fine line" & can be considered a SWYPO item. But if I am using it to bind the granola mix is it ok? In case you are not familiar with the product i posted the pic. below. Thank You 3 cups unsweetened coconut flakes 1 1/2 cups sliced almonds 1 cup shelled raw pumpkin seeds (pepitas) 1/2 cup sesame seeds 1/2 cup raw sunflower seeds 2 tablespoons chia seeds (optional) 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon 1/2 cup Date lady syrup

    Cycle 4 for me May 1st!! I really try to stay w30/paleo during the week, BUT the weekends are where I lose myself! Need a good reset! Look forward to all your checkins!
  7. W30 & InstantPot

    I would love to start a thread for InstantPot recipes. My IP is being delivered 2/1/17 so any & all ideas are welcomed =)
  8. I have had a handful of friends run marathons during W30. yes they may not have PR'd but they did get through the races. I myself did a DUathlon & was a bit slower. We used: Rx bars, dates w/ cashew butter, some drank coconut water, pickle juice, just to name a few off hand
  9. Kombucha

    GT is approved. Melissa did do a post back a few years ago.. If you do not see added sugars to the label you are good to go. Hope this helps

    nope, no worries!! I totally understand! I was talking with a friend about W30, & W30 compliant ingredients. So it was a fun debate! =)

    Easy Paleo Oatmeal (With Vegan Option) PRINT Ingredients For the base: ¼ cup almond meal 1 mashed banana 2 pastured eggs (for vegan omit eggs and include additional 2 tbsp ground flax or chia) ¼ cup coconut milk or almond milk (how to make almond milk) 1 tbsp ground flax seeds 1 tbsp grassfed gelatin (for protein, omit for vegan- buy it here) Optional add-ins: You can add in any of these items to make different flavors: blueberries strawberries cinnamon milk nuts seeds Instructions Put the banana, eggs and milk in a unheated saucepan and mash the banana until it is pureed. This is much easier if you use a hand blender. Once all the liquids are pureed, add in the remaining dry ingredients and mix once more with the hand blender until combined. Turn the heat on to medium and continuously stir until the mixture starts to thicken and bubble slightly. About 2-5 minutes. Turn off heat and put the oatmeal in a bowl. Top with your favorite toppings (I used blueberries and a little cinnamon) and enjoy! curious to know... If I get a fat mixed into this somehow, will this be a compliant meal. Looks like all all ingrdients are W30 approved.

    I love love Rx bars!!!

    If you can plan out your meals on paper that always helps! I would just do a weekly menu or even a few days at a time that works too. That way you know what you have or may need to buy. Reading the labels is the key to all this! Those sneaky sugars are every where so meal prep is gonna be key! I use my slow cooker to make my lunches for the week. I even purchased meal containers, to have them made & ready to go.
