    Challah for Shabbat

    Hi! As an Orthodox Jew, I have Challah every week for Shabbat. It needs to be made of a grain (can't be gluten-free), and I was trying to figure out which alternative would be least disruptive. The best I could think of was spelt matzah (ingredients are whole grain spelt and water), but I would love to hear if there's a grain that would be less disruptive to the Whole30 process. Thanks in advance!
  2. I have a recipe for stone age bread I've eaten for years... Mix wet, then add nuts, bake, 325 for an hour... OK OR NOT? Ingredients 1 cup raw almond 1cup raw pecans or 1 cupwalnuts 1cup flax seed 1cup pumpkin seeds 1cup sunflower seeds 1cup sesame seeds 1⁄3cup olive oil 1 1⁄2teaspoons kosher salt 5eggs
  3. I have a few seeming remedial issues/questions to throw out on this forum. Here goes: I'm on Whole30 (Day 11 wrapping up) and I'm just wondering what the basis is for not having alcohol--as in a glass of dry white wine, which according to my research, has 4 grams of carbs and less than 8 grams of sugar in a glass and 100 calories. I'm fine not having it for 30 days but when I go back to "normal" I'm thinking of what I may want to add back in and wine is definitely at the top of the list. So it got me questioning what is wrong with it in the first place? Is it bad for you if you have 1 glass a few times a week, generally speaking? I thought it had tons of sugar in it, but apparently most dry whites don't. And I have a local wine store that I shop at where they pretty much know the vintage, etc, so I can get some personalized service when I am done with Whole30. I guess it can depend on a lot of factors, which is why knowing the vineyard, vintage, etc (via the wine store owners) is key. My other question is bread. Without it I am hungry all the time. Which is a different issue (below), but my question is, why is bread the devil lately? I know so many people who are gluten free, but bread has been around for the ages. Do we just eat more than our ancestors did? Or do our bodies just not process it the right way anymore? I was thinking, once Whole30 is over, I would start making my own bread. Is that a better option? Is everyone anti-bread because it's so processed these days? My kids love their peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and it's one of the staples for their lunch. So before I go giving up on bread in my house, I want to know the reasons why everyone is on the gluten-free bandwagon, even if you don't have gluten intolerance issues? No one in my family has gut or gluten issues. We have pretty iron stomachs. I'm happy to make my own if it's bad because of over processing. And pasta that is whole wheat and organic? Is that "bad" now? Because in Italy I'm guessing most kids still eat that every day (probably not even whole wheat) and it is another staple in our diet. I'm trying to sort out which foods my family should avoid. I know with weight loss bread is a big one to avoid, but if the rest of us (not including my husband) digest things fine, then is it wrong to eat it? If not, then how many servings are okay a day? Now onto my hunger: I'm doing this because, while I eat pretty well, I think I could eat healthier. But the main reason is to support my husband because he wants to loose some pounds (like 10-15). But I don't want to lose any. I'm already on the thin side. Today I had Chia Pudding, 2 eggs and sweet potato cakes for breakfast and was still hungry. I ate a big lunch, a huge chicken salad (Whole30 approved), charred zucchini, then a cashew-banana-vegan smoothie, then had a spoonful of cashew butter and while at the gym, I still bonked. Total sugar shakes, etc. Luckily I had a Lara bar with me but that barely did the trick. I felt like I was going to pass out. I'm feeling worse by the day on Whole30. Is it possible my body just doesn't have the reserves to do this? I have always had a very high metabolism so I'm wondering if i'm burning through everything too fast, and if so, how to fix it? I know I threw out a lot here so thanks in advance for anyone who wants to take on my questions!

    Yeah, this kinda sucks

    All, I committed to this a couple of days ago (I'm wrapping up day two) and while I was eating *kinda* clean before, I am absolutely surgical now. I'm eating, and I'm not equivocating, rationalizing, or faking - perhaps for the first time in my life. And it sucks. I've not done drugs. I had a short stint with cigarettes, but it didn't take (no addiction). I drink occasionally, but my young children have curtailed that (lack of time!). Suffice it to say, I have no addictions. WRONG. Holy crap this is hard. Briefly setting the stage, I'm deployed in support of the US Army. The dining facility has some great choices available - and I applaud them for it. But they have just as much crap, and are more than willing to push it upon you. I can feel the pull of sugar on a cellular level. And please, please don't get me started on the bread. I'm a bread guy. I come from a long line of bread people (it explains soooo much). And I am in the land of reallllllly good bread. I have long yearned for this type of access to this smorgasboard of carbohydrates. And now that I have forsworn them as my enemy, they are everywhere I turn. But on a slightly more serious point, my body doesn't like this. I know that an engine works better with better fuel, but the period where the new fuel is burning out the old, crappy fuel - well, it sucks. I am devoid of all energy. I've been working out five days out of seven (good workouts, not just lip service) for the past 6 weeks. I've lost twenty pounds. I have started to crave a good sweat. Today: no energy. I could barely keep myself awake. I was really thankful for my dark glasses today, because I nodded off when someone was talking to me in the car. Tell me it gets better. Tell me that I'll wake up tomorrow and everything will be great. I know it won't, but lie to me regardless. I'm committed to this, but this detox phase, well, it just kinda sucks. Thanks for sticking with me through my rant. I'm not always this needy. Denny

    Autism and Whole 30

    I have 4 kids, two of which have autism. This makes it super difficult to change ANYTHING. Previous to Whole 30; they ate cheese pizza, cheese sandwiches, PB&J, Pancakes, applesauce and bananas and candy. My boyfriend and oldest child are doing whole 30 strictly. With them I don't knpow what to do...I started by cutting gluten and dairy. Both have shown improvements, in fact my 4 year old who is classically autistic is now talking more and is more connected, he even wanted me to snuggle with him! They both would eat applesauce all day if I let them. Fruit is a major thing for both of them. Oh, they will eat plain scambled eggs. What do I do? Sneak veggies into Paleo-fyied food? Let them eat fruit all day? Should I not make them do whole 30? Anyone with any experience with autistic kids or even very picky eaters? I feel like they are straving all day. I am a sad mama. (Side note, I am about 2 weeks in and feel great! But I can't eat sweet potatoes, they make me sluggish and are WAY too much like food without brakes!)
  6. Had a nice sized chunk of bread yesterday during Eucharist (actually just a bite of course but seemed big!) and didn't realized until I sat down. I've read here that communion wafer is fine as a religious exception, but my faith tradition uses bread, and it's not "against my religion" so to speak to not take it. (Skipping wine or juice is definitely fine.) Anyways, I restarted my 30 days, but now re-thinking. Does that much bread make a big enough difference in re-calibrating my body? I do have a bunch of Sundays to go.
