  1. Our first day after completing our Whole30 is my husband's birthday. I've managed to convince him to have a wonderful dinner at home (you know - give yourself the gift of health!), but he has asked for two things: beer or wine, and ice cream. I read the reintroduction in It Start with Food and had planned to follow it, except these two requests throw a curveball into the plan. Thoughts on keeping it a Whole30 day and then for dinner adding the alcohol and then having coconut milk ice cream? We'd have to watch the flavors and other mix-ins here, but figured it was better than dairy options. I was thinking I could then do the next two days Whole30 and get back on the regular reintroduction plan. We had such a successful 30 days, I just want to do my best to keep us on a good track! TIA
  2. Hi there, I'm on day 25 of my first-ever Whole30. Hooray! I feel great. I don't crave my (sweet) treats like I thought I would, don't crave the gluten-free hot cereal, except for the fact it's easy, and am proud of myself for upping the vegetable consumption. The *only* thing that concerns me is that I have thought about my celebratory glass of red wine all month. Every day. I want that glass. I'm an athlete and am a very light drinker. Over the past few years, one drink a week, maybe. Sometimes every few weeks. Sometimes if there's more social events happening, more than one in a week. I can limit myself to one, but it takes mental effort. Because........... I come from a family of alcoholics. Both sides of my family, including my father. And, in my 20s, I flirted with it. I started drinking heavily to self-medicate. Fortunately, I got my s**t together. I'm 47 now. That's why, I think, I have to really use my willpower to stop at one. What concerns me now is that I'm thinking about this darned glass of wine so much. I worry this is the genetic predisposition rearing its head, and wondering if it's a sign I should just give up alcohol completely. Another thing. In the months before I started W30, I was drinking a little more than usual. Like one a few times a week instead of one whenever. Almost always due to work stress, not because of a wedding or birthday party. I love W30 for helping to bring this and other food issues to light. And for many other reasons that I won't babble on about right now. If anyone has experienced something similar with alcohol, I would love some perspective. Thank you,
  3. Hello! I've just completed my first ever Whole30 and I feel amazing. I truly don't miss any foods, and don't really have the desire to reintroduce any (yet). The only thing I miss is red wine! I would like to stay Whole30 compliant food-wise while reintroducing red wine slowly - thinking a glass while cooking dinner tonight, and over the weekend, and then back to no wine at all next week. Then reintro for foods. If I do this though, am I just completely sabotaging my reintro? I don't know if this makes a difference, but my sugar dragon doesn't feed off of sweet sugary foods, but it rages for savory carbs (pasta, rice, potato chips). Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

    Angostura Bitters

    Hi. I’m not interested in reintroducing alcohol just yet but I am wanting to reintroduce Angostura Bitters back into my diet. While it has a high alcohol content, the amount you ingest is so tiny since only a dash is usually added (in my case to club soda). The ingredients also list sugar and caramel colorant. My question is would I consider this reintroducing alcohol or something else since the ingredients also list caramel color and sugar? I really only use are a teaspoon per drink. Thank you!
  5. I know we are able to drink things like flavoured sparkling water, or make 'mocktails' for special occasions, but what about using something like this product? https://seedlipdrinks-ca.com/products/spice-94 It is a distilled non-alcoholic spirit. All the ingredients are compliant, but I have a feeling this might fall into the SWYPO category. Thoughts?
