    LucieB got a reaction from SugarcubeOD in You know someone is doing a Whole30 when...   
    More of a "been living Whole30 style" for long time observations--
    New person at work asks where vending machines are. I've worked there 9 years. I couldnt answer with certainty.
    Turns out vending machines are by the elevator. Not the stairs, my usual mode of transport!
    And when mom asks why I use bank lobby instead of drive up. Banks have drive ups? Can I ride my bike through there?
    And, when Siri FINALLY figures out it is FODMAP not God map, polyols not polyps, and fructans not fry tans. She's like that unsupportive friend sometimes lol!!

    Similarly, I've heard "You say you don't eat dairy, but you're eating mayonnaise".

    OK we're off the post topic, but why the fixation on just tuna? I skip the tuna and go for canned salmon, mackerel, oysters. Maybe I'm missing something about the tuna? I love added bonus of calcium from the bones in the mackerel and salmon, too. My stores in the midwest sell full big cans of these for just $2-2.50.

    Friend bought some yogurt covered raisins and offered me some, then said "oh I'm sorry, I forgot, you don't eat dairy".  
    Then followed that with, "I eat them for the calcium from the yogurt."   
     
    Ingredients:  yogurt coating:  sugar, partially hydrogenated palm kernel oil, nonfat milk powder, yogurt powder (contains nonfat yogurt powder and sodium citrate), color added, lactic acid, lecithin (an emulsifier), and vanillin (an artificial flavor). Raisins:  tapioca dextrin, dextrose, whey powder, powdered sugar, confectioner's glaze. 
     
    Probably more calcium in the raisins alone!

    LucieB got a reaction from missmary in Help on energy drink pre-workout   
    Sorry but that vuka drink is certainly not the "intelligent energy" as described in the site. Vitamins, salt, and questionable extracts dissolved in water to "Perform at peak levels"? Marketing gimmick. And not 'natural'.
    Besides, how does zero calorie equate to energy drink? Again sorry if you love it. But I hate seeing stuff like that suggested, especially here in my fave Whole30 forum. You don't need stuff like this. Drink water. Eat real food.
