  1. In reading the original rules I recalled it said it was ok to buy minimally processed packaged foods like tomatoes and broths. I purchased the Pacific Brand Beef Broth and didn't notice until later (my bad!) that it contains a small amount of "autolyzed yeast extract" and says on the label it is gluten free. Otherwise the rest of the ingredients are approved. My gut tells me not to eat this as I don't know exactly what that stuff is, though others have posted that guar gum in coconut milk is ok, even though that is technically not a whole food either. Any suggestions??
  2. Pasteles are one of the delicacies found in Puerto Rican homes. It is traditional food that is a treasure in a Puerto Rican food desert that is Oklahoma. I get them from my dad for Christmas. A pastele is basically a protein, some olives, and a few other ingredients that are stuffed inside a mix of plantains and yautìa, which is a corm or tuber type vegetable (?). There is also Adobo (seasoning) and sofrito (which I know is already compliant in of itself when it is homemade.) I also wonder if the seasoning Sazón is compliant. Thank you for your time.

    WaWa Whole 30

    Going out of town for the weekend and brought some foods with me but I know we will be probably stopping at a WaWa, what can I eat there? Is there anything I can actually order off the menu or should I just stick to some almonds, fruit cup, veggies, etc. ? Thanks!
  4. Hello-does anyone know if this is whole30 approved?

    Cooking spray

    Ok, ok,.....really! I don't use cooking spray often, actually try to avoid it BUT!! BIG BUT! I just looked at my Ingrediants. Soy, soy lecithin, canola oil. All bad, right? So when I don't use cooking spray I use coconut oil or EVO. I guess I just worry about using too much of these. Thoughts? Advice?

    Egg/Banna Pancakes/Crepes

    Hello - I see that 'pancakes' are a no-no, but it seems like that is mainly because some sort of flour is used and they are mimicking a traditional pancake. I have a yummy recipe for 2 ingredient 'pancakes/crepes' its just a mashed banana and 2 eggs and they are sort of like crepes more than pancakes. Sometimes I add cinamon but wanted to know if these would fall under the 'approved' list? I eat them with some sort of nut butter and maybe a small amount of berries? Thank you - Samantha Jane.
  8. Hi! Is Konjac allowed as an ingredient in a pre-made salad dressing (in this case, Primal Kitchen's Italian). I know the fake noodles are not allowed, but this is the first time I've encounter Konjac as an ingredient in this matter. (And yes, I know I can make my own dressings, and I do.) Thank you in advance!
  9. Hello everyone! I start my whole30 tomorrow morning and I did some preparing today by shopping! I know sugar is not allowed in the whole30 (duh), but I'm a little confused on something... I was reading labels today at the store, and while sugar wasn't on the ingredient list, the nutrition label said it had sugar in it... so can I have the said item or not? For example, a can of Hannaford Tomato Sauce lists ingredients: "Tomato Puree (Water, Tomato Paste), Water, Less than 2% of: salt, onion powder, garlic powder, citric acid, natural flavors, dehydrated bell peppers" But in the label it says "Total Sugars 2g" ("Includes 0g Added Sugars) Is this just the natural sugars you get from tomatoes? Should I be more concerned with the ingredient list or the nutrition label (or both)? What if the label DIDN'T say "added sugars"? A few items were like this, so I didn't buy the product just in case (but will need them soon if I want to make what I have planned!) If this is a product I should stay away from, anyone have any recommendations for tomato sauce, tomato paste and canned diced tomatoes? (I live in New England). Also, is there a source/list of products you can scroll through/browse to see what is approved? Little about me: I don't drink coffee, and am considered a social drinker to alcohol and soda (not even once a week!) Bread, pasteries, and ESPECIALLY chocolate are my biggest mountains to climb. Any tips or advice is welcomed! Thanks for reading! ^^ -oh, and I know it's been answered (but can't find it) but is popcorn okay to have? I'm mainly talking about the Skinny Pop brand (the plain/original flavor in particular). I think I read the answer is no, but it was because of the butter in it (which the original does not)
  10. This particular iron supplement contains vegetable glycerin. However, I only need a capful once a day in the morning. I've tried the straight iron pills and they make me feel seriously sick. How much is this small amount going to throw off my whole 30? Finding an iron supplement that my stomach can handle that I don't dread taking (iron tastes awful y'all) was a game changer in my life and I don't like the idea of rocking that boat.
  11. Hi all helpful Whole30 gurus! I am going on a three-day work trip to Las Vegas. I know Vegas has lots of food options but I want to pack some Whole30 back up supplies just in case. I will be working a conference and will have limited time for breakfast and lunch. Please share suggestions for a quick breakfast and/or lunch that I can buy now and take with me in my checked suitcase to have while at the conference. Right now, I am wondering about Whole30 compliant Rx Bars or Lara Bars for a quick breakfast if no other options are available. Also, is there a beef jerky option that could work for lunch along with fresh veggies or fruit? Can I pack fresh veggies in my checked suitcase on Southwest airlines? Thanks in advance for your advice! - JohnW

    Vitamin C Powders

    Before I started Whole30 I was taking the goop GLOW morning skin superpowder. I especially liked all the Vitamin C because flu season has been crazy. Here are the ingredients: Vitamin C (as ascorbic acid) Vitmin E (as d-alpha tocopheryl acetate) Grape (Vitis vinifera) Seed Extract CoQ10 (as ubinquinone) Lutein Zeaxanthin Isomalto-oligosaccharides, natural flavors, citric acid, rebaudioside A, and silica. So I stopped taking it because at the very least I think the Isomalto-oligosaccharides are problematic, but that wasn't completely clear to me from searching the forum. Ever since, I've been looking for an easy Vitamin C powder I can drink with water in the morning. I found something by MegaFood called Daily C-Protect Nutrient Booster Powder, which lists the following ingredients: FoodState Orange Vitamin C FoodState Farm Fresh Fruit Phenolic Blend (Uncle Matt's Organic Whole Oranges (natural source of bioflavonoids), Organic Blueberry (natural source of anthocyanins), Organic Cranberry (natural source of proanthocyanidins)) Immune-Strengthening Herbal Blend (200 mg Organic Astragalus Root, 175 mg Organic Schisandra Berry) The "FoodState Orange Vitamin C" has a registered mark, so I looked that up and a "Cytoplan" web site (UK-based) lists the following ingredients: Vitamin C complexed in citrus pulp, vegetable stearic acid, tablet coating (Vegetable Cellulose). I'm starting to suspect that there is no Vitamin C powder out there for me to have in the mornings, but can anyone advise as to whether the goop GLOW or the MegaFood powder are Whole30 compliant? And if not, due to what ingredients? This info will be helpful during the 30 days, but also afterwards when I'm deciding what to re-introduce. Thanks!
