  1. I finally bought some almond butter because it seemed like everyone really likes it, but I don't know what to do with it. All I have been able to find are suggestions to dip apples into it, but I do not like apples. Sarah
  2. Hello! I've been on W30 since April 17 and so far so good. I've been passively reading these forums and thought it was time to contribute. Here is an easier way to make your homemade almond milk with NO straining! 3 tbs compliant almond butter 1 cup of water Put ingredients in blender and mix until combined. That's it. Add optional cinnamon or other w30 compliant flavorings. You can strain it if you like but it's not necessary. I store mine in a regular mason jar. You will need to shake it up before each use as it will separate in the fridge. This is a great recipe if your using it with your coffee. It lasts me about a week While I enjoy a good black cold brew, this was a nice way to shake things up.
  3. The food we can eat

    Hi Anyone knows, how much almond butter can we eat for each meal? Thanks
  4. Hi Community! I'm on day 3 of my second whole30...and I'm feeling discouraged. I came home last night hungry, and sick of the idea of meat already (I think I ate too much pork at lunch trying to squash any cravings) and I went for the almond butter. First with a cut up apple, then with dried apricots dipped straight into the jar...and then I felt better. My body was happy, but I felt discouraged. This is not whole30 behavior, and I considered starting over, but thought I would reach out for support. Has anyone had similar experiences? Thanks for the help!
  5. SWYPO Food Question

    I'm clear on the Whole30 stance on SWYPO foods. In fact, I probably just answered my own question (don't eat the SWYPO and get individual packets of almond butter if portion control is a problem when using a full-size jar, or don't eat it at all during Whole30 as there are better sources of healthy fats). But here's the thought process that lead up to the conclusion above: I'm torn about whether the benefit of a portion-controlled "treat" (almond butter mixed with coconut oil in a food processor and then frozen into the base of silicone muffin liners - similar to many freezer fudge recipes except only two compliant ingredients and NO sweetener of any kind - I realize it's the shape and experience of eating it in a little cup - like Reese's in shape except no chocolate and no peanut butter) is better than uncontrolled spoonfuls from the jar, knowing that the latter is a bigger food problem for me. I didn't have a Reese's addiciton in my past life but I DID/do have a "nut butter" problem. Solution: avoid nut butter, or get individual packets for portion control. Do NOT freeze into little Reese's-style cups. Thanks for listening! I hope this thought process helps someone else! Cheers, -Lauren (GGG)
  6. I bought a jar of MaraNatha raw almond butter. The label reads like so; ingredients: almonds. Contains almonds. May contain trace amounts of soy, peanuts and tree nuts. Is this not compliant due to potential traces of soy, peanuts a tree nuts?
  7. Almond butter ingredients

    I know there has been a post before about almond butter, but it Did not answer my question. I found the kirklands brand at Costco, and in the ingredients all it says is roasted almonds. But in the nutritional facts it says sugars 2g. Can I still have this?
  8. Almond Butter brands

    I know almond butter is allowed, but I am wondering about a specific brand. Justin's classic almond butter I bought it then a friend I am doing it with said it might not be approved it might have added sugar. Can someone help I don't want to eat something not approved! I am working hard at this whole eat clean thing! (: Nutrition Facts Serving Size: 2 Tbsp.

  9. Can I ask one question about coffee. I use to drinking coffee black with no sugar but usually I have it with something sweet. Before starting Whole30 I would have 2tbs of almond butter(no sugar, just dry roasted almonds) with my coffee. I was wondering what would be a better choice in terms of nutrition vs sugar: banana, 2 dates or 2 tbs of almond butter or put coconut milk in coffee? And one more question if you don't mind. In terms of protein is 3 eggs for breakfast is too much protein? I have standard-small palm but I'm afraid I will get hungry with just 2 eggs. Thank you all very much for help.

  11. First day! Hopeful. But got real hungry and dinner's just now barely getting started. I ate some Almond Butter to hold me over and wondering if that was a bad choice… noticed it was on the Limited list (almonds) I'm used to snacking A LOT!!!
  12. I am on Day 9 and keeping it together. I have already discovered I cannot eat Lara bars. I wake up wanting one-- the cherry pie flavor- I adore! But I know they are a sugar trigger for me. I am a sweet breakfast person and a few times have made "paleo discs" with pumpkin, 3 eggs and some coconut flour. I eat them without any sweetener with some almond butter and 1/3 a bananna on the side. I know it's all totally compliant --but really I know-- it's not sweet pancakes- hoping that's ok b/c it's not sweet and does't seem to trigger the sugar demon. I have half and apple and that's it for fruit daily. i am struggling to limit nuts and nut butters- I don't like avocado (a tsp or two of guacamole as a condiment is ok) and I am leaning towards lean meats so I'm hoping the nut butters and nuts are ok. The main feeling is one of being sort of unsatisfied all the time... Just missing my old foods a lot- and I was eating pretty clean before!! One note: a friend passed away on day 2 of the Whole 30 and I desperately wanted a drink during the week of mourning and am very glad I stayed strong did not drink and dealt with my feelings. It was a wake up call that a glass of wine (even though I do not drink to excess) is a definite emotional crutch for me.
