    Amino Almonds!

    I just adapted my mom's tamari almonds for W30 and they're awesome! Roast 1lb raw, whole almonds at 300F for 15 mins on a cookie sheet, lined with foil or parchment. In a heat-proof bowl, toss almonds with 1/4c coconut aminos and 1/4 tsp salt. Let sit for 5 minutes. Toss again, then place in a single layer on the same sheet, and roast until dark mahogany outside, toasty brown inside. Took me about 30 min, tossing every 10. Let cool completely, then enjoy!
  2. Good morning, I'm not sure the best forum to put this on but since it deals with my meal plans I figured I'd start here. This is my first time on whole30 and generally I like it a lot. I find myself eating a lot of salmon, eggs, almonds and other items high in vitamin E and such. While I love removing all kinds of negative foods I am scared I'm eating too much certain things that can cause vitamin E toxicity as well as high cholesterol. I am predisposed to high cholesterol and because of all the eggs I'm eating I'm scared that it could rise. I've been eating eggs daily while on whole 30 cause my go to breakfast (yogurt) isn not allowed. That's a lot eggs. I've tried fruit but days I have fruit for breakfast I end up eating eggs later on. I normally don't eat a lot of red meat the occasional beef meat balls or maybe super rare piece of lamb but I find now that I need to eat more of it to diversify my meal plans. Anyways today is day 21 and outside a cough drop which seemed unavoidable because I couldn't catch my breath and had a bad cough. It's been a pretty good eating month. I would love any and all advice. Thank you. -Yelizaveta

    Ok so I had been in the grocery store for about an hour reading labels then I was at the end of my trip got in a hurry and picked up some almonds that said “May contain peanuts “ and ate some before realizing it!!!! Does this constitute a start over??? Any help appreciated!!!!
  4. I am trying to stick with eating only three (relatively large) meals a day that mostly consist of protein, veggies, and fat. But if I am hungry for a snack, is it okay if I eat a handful of nuts or coconut chia seed pudding? Should I eat fruits or nuts/fat as a snack?
  5. Hi there, I have always been a grazer and as such I tend to have smaller main meals with grazing stops in between. Before W30 I would generally graze on berries (like a handful at 11am sort of thing). But other times I would dig into a bag of crisps or maybe a slice of toast. I'm on Day 7 of W30 and I've noticed that I am grazing on nuts (almonds and cashews). So I am eating about two small handfuls per day, split between around 11am, 4pm and 8pm. Sometimes I have berries too. Is this behaviour ok on W30? I'm not eating them during cravings, I am generally hungry and I consider them part of my main meals, just eaten a little later/earlier! If I should be cutting them out then I will try. But I'm worried about not getting enough fuel otherwise. Thanks! K x
  6. I'm on Day 4 of my second Whole30 and finding it much easier this time around, although still not easy, of course. One thing I'm focusing more on this time is eliminating excess nuts and fruits from my diet, which was a problem for me last time and which I know can be an impediment to a successful experience. However, the reality is that I have blood-brain barrier hypoglycemia, which means my blood glucose will test perfectly normal but my brain isn't getting what it needs out of it all. It's a life-long problem that no amount of proper eating can take care of, defective physiology in other words. Sometimes I get flat-out HANGRY and need something to give my brain a kickstart, and prevent myself from verbally eviscerating people until I can eat a proper meal. I know that Larabars are permitted as emergency snacks for situations like that (I don't like having hunger rage, or passing out for that matter), but about three weeks into my last Whole30 I got back some allergy testing results: Turns out that I'm allergic to almonds, which are an ingredient in all Larabars. Are there any other compliant bars that I can buy, or can anyone suggest a compliant recipe? I'd almost rather buy them, so that I only have a limited number on hand and am not tempted by a pan of them. I looked at every single bar I could find today and they all had sugar in them, usually as the first ingredient! I did see in another thread that Epic bars are ok, but they're painfully salty for me and it's the carbs that I need. I also looked at RXBars, which were also mentioned, but they all had sugar (by any other name). Any suggestions would be very much appreciated! <3

    Ah Nuts!

    I'm not completely new to this and I have read the book but would like some clarification please! I get a little confused on the nut section. Under Best Eating fats it includes…. cashews and macadamia nuts while under the The Occasional it lists almonds, pecans, brazils,etc. Does this mean that cashews and macadamia are superior over almonds? I understand that one should not consume an entire bowl of any of these but I get a little confused on the Best, Occasional and Limit section in the nut category!! Help!!! Thanks in advance!

    Walnuts vs. Almonds

    Hi everyone, So I like to snack on a little bit of walnuts once a day in between meals. I grew up eating them in Poland and they just seem like my "comfort food" so to speak. Now Dr. Cordain says that almonst have a good 6:3 omega fat ratio while almonds have no omega 3. It Starts with Food says that we should enjoy almonds but limit walnuts. What to believe? If I were to go with my palate, I'd go with walnuts. What do you do when your Paleo resources seem to contradict one another? -Dominik (day four of the Whole30, restarting, after falling off the wagon after a week)

    Allergic to Almonds...

    My husband and I successfully finished our first Whole 30 back in June. It was really great and we felt it wasn't that hard for us since we are both big meat eaters. We took a few weeks to do reintroduction and then ate what we wanted on vacation and now we're moving back to a "paleo" lifestyle. My husband noticed ever since we started Whole 30 that he's been getting these rashes. At first we thought it was poison ivy because he got the first rash right after we were out in the woods at a picnic, but after it went away with treatment, it came back several times. He went to the allergist yesterday and found out he is allergic to almonds. it just so happens we've been using almond flour and almond butter in a few recipes! I've done a few searches, but haven't come up with any good answers. What can I use to replace almond flour in recipes like meatloaf or meatballs that use it as a bonding agent or for "breading" and things like that? I hate coconut, so I wouldn't want to use coconut flour if it has any taste of coconut at all. I really don't want to give up these great new recipes I've found. Any suggestions?
  10. I was wondering if anyone had experience with a histamine reaction early on. I've developed a wheezy productive cough since day 2 that feels a bit like asthma, and some intermittent sneezing and post-nasal drip that seems to be worse after eating then resolves (congested bronchi feeling stays though). I've had very mild seasonal allergies in the distant past, and have a slight mold allergy. I've never had any kind of noticeable reaction to anything I've eaten before, and at first I thought it was possibly a "healing crisis" carb flu type reaction to not eating dairy or grains. (I've done low carb before but always with full fat dairy and a little whole grain (like Kavli crackers). The is the first time I've ever been dairy and grain free.) Has anyone ever heard of a histamine reaction to foods like almonds or coconut? I'll list my four days below in case anyone has any ideas. Other than some nausea, which resolved, I've been feeling pretty great except for the allergy symptoms. I'm coming off of a really terrible carb, sugar and PUFA laden diet. This seems to be getting worse, so I'm not sure if I should let it run it's course (if it's more of a detox symptom) or medicate (benadryl) or try to lay off the nuts and coconut (which would really be depressing). I guess I'm leaning towards wait and see, watch and wait, but after my last meal, I'm getting some swelling in the roof of my mouth, so I don't want to aggravate any possible developing allergy by keeping on with the food. Anyone have any thoughts about differentiating allergies from detox symptoms? Thanks for the expert advice folks! I love this forum.... Day One 1. coffee with coconut oil 2. Baby greens and tuna 3.
