AnticipatingJOY posted a topic in Join the Whole30Trying this healthy option so that I can possibly cleanout the things that I am allergic to. Concerned because food groups already limited. Tips for how to manage adjusting recipes or places to go for additional recipes.
I am on day three of my first whole30. I normally take an off brand version of Zyrtec (as recommended by my doctor) every day because I have year round allergy symptoms (scratchy or itchy throat, runny nose, stuffy nose etc.). I realized on day one that my off brand antihistamine contains corn starch and that’s a no go for Whole30. So I went and bought a different one but just found it contains glycerin which is also a no. I need help! Anyone have an over the counter antihistamine that does not contain anything from the no list??? I tried to just go without taking any allergy meds at all for the last three days but am now suffering for it. I’m on Whole30 to figure out a possible mild allergy that is causing my skin to break out and my eczema to worsen if that helps for context.
After having my first successful run with Whole30 in January, I have encouraged my family to try it with me starting the day after Mother's Day! DH is finally onboard and ready to commit. DS is willing to give it a go, but a little scared, especially the thought of having to commit to 30 days (he did a 7 day sugar/gluten cleanse when I started my W30 in Jan). My main reason for pursuing this with my family is to alleviate some symptoms I've noticed in my son's health (low energy, weight gain, moodiness, mild gluten allergy, dairy intolerance, not hungry in the a.m., adult-sized appetite). Aside from the usual advice about reading the Whole9 literature about Kids doing the program, I would love some general tips and tricks from those of you that have had success with Kids' Whole30 or are in the process right now. Is there a mantra that helped you guide your kids through the program? A kid-friendly recipe website you couldn't live without? Did you modify the program at all for your kids? How did you explain the program to your kids to motivate and educate them? How did you manage slip ups? Any other words of wisdom to help with a 9 year old? Any advice you can offer is greatly appreciated!!
