    Panera Chicken

    I was wondering if the chicken from panera that they use for their salads is whole30 compliant.
  3. Hello! My girlfriend and I are preparing to start the Whole30 but we have several bags of frozen Great Value chicken breasts that say they contain either “chicken broth powder” or “chicken broth” but we haven’t been able to find online what the ingredients are within these broths. We’d hate to have to buy more chicken though because we’re both grad students. Would these be compliant?
  4. So this recipe looked delicious: like REALLY delicious. Obviously, heavy cream and parmesan are out, so I tweaked the recipe - take out the bad stuff and substitute with 3/4 cup of coconut cream... CRAZY GOOD!! (It goes without saying: brown the chicken in ghee.) You don't miss the cream and parmesan at all, and you don't taste the coconut - you just get the creaminess. I made it for company and they went nuts over it. Making it next time we have people for dinner too (don't judge - they don't know each other ).
  5. I am starting tomorrow and am a bit confused on what meats are ok. Can I buy steak and chicken breast from a regular grocery store or is there something specific I should be searching out? Any guidance on the meat aspect would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
  6. I'm starting the whole30 on Monday. I grocery shopped today and spent $250..because I don't cook much so I needed a lot. That said, I'm looking for very simple, few ingredient crockpot ideas for chicken
  7. So has anyone seen the Netflix documentary What the Health, Its mostly about how bad meat and eggs is for you. I'm freaking out and trying not to fall into the hype but I look up everything they mention and they're not wrong. Has anyone else seen it? Any thoughts?
  8. I am making bone broth for the first time in my life and I'm using my slow cooker. It's been about 18 hours now, I was thinking to go to 24 and stop, but I see the water level has dropped about 3/4 of an that normal? And can I just add a little more water now to bring the water level up? Or just let is be and I'll have a little less that what I initially poured? I only opened the lid once at around an hour into it, but since then the lid has been down.
  9. I have never made chicken stock in my life and I looked high and low around my area for chicken broth that was whole30 compliant...but nothing was available that didn't have sugar (evaporated cane juice to be exact.) So....I have decided to try out the recipe from the book to make my own broth. My question is, do I just use the bones from a chicken? I asked my mom what she normally does, and she told me to use a whole chicken...meat and all. I don't recall the recipe mentioning to cook a chicken in the pot...just use a leftover carcass of a chicken. What's the difference? I don't really want to have a boiled chicken (I am not making chicken soup). I just want to have some chicken broth available for other dishes that require it. So, do I just buy some chicken bones from a butcher and continue on? Or do I need the meat on it? Thanks in advance!
  10. Hello! This past week while meal planning, I decided to make a couple of basic dishes to eat for breakfast/lunch throughout the week. I made compliant egg salad, and a compliant chicken salad spin off. Both were made with whole30 mayo, and for the chicken salad I mixed diced chicken with mayo, bacon, and sun-dried tomatoes. Both dishes were absolutely delicious, and we're wonderful options throughout the week. Since they were packed with protein and fat, they kept me full for a long time! Going into this next week, I'm looking for some alternatives that are similar to these dishes. I don't want to make the exact same things two weeks in a row, because I know that I'll get burnt out of them and won't want to eat them. I was wondering if anyone else have made some similar dishes that they can fall back on? I'd love to hear ideas! Thanks!

    Can I have rotisserie chicken?

    From like, the super market? I haven't checked ingredients (are they even listed on the chicken?) but I was just wondering. I'm hungry and just feel like veggies and chicken tonight. No defrosted chicken. You understand my question.

    Meat Marinades

    I have attempted the Whole 30, lasted 5 days and gave up. Unfortunately, I didn't pick a great time in my personal calendar. It was loaded with social engagements that made being compliant extremely difficult. I have however, found great value in following the shopping lists and meal plan template! I am trying to do the best I can with what my schedule and budget will allow. I have historically purchased my meat in bulk and then packaged them in smaller bags with a marinade. This has been great because I have been able to pull them from the freezer and while they thaw they marinade. This has allowed me to not eat the same boring plain chicken/pork each night. I have been using the Lawry's 30 min marinades - which I know is not compliant! I am looking for simple compliant marinades that are flavorful. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

    Costco Meats

    How are the Costco frozen meats (mainly beef and chicken)? Grass fed is so expensive and I already have the Costco meats in my freezer. How much difference does it make whether the meat is grass fed? I am willing to do it if it will make a difference!

    deli meats? (canada!)

    Hello everyone! I'm a few days into my first Whole30, and I'm having a lot of trouble finding deli meats that actually meet the "no added sugar" rule. I live in Canada, so I don't have this "Whole Foods" store you keep talking about, and I'm a broke college student with no ways of buying it from a farmer because my wallet really can't take it. Does anyone know of a brand in Canada that would fit the criteria? Talking about things like sliced chicken and roast beef, by the way.
  15. You ever have meat defrosted and have NOT a clue as to what you're going to do with it? I have about 5-6lbs of skinless chicken breast defrosted in my fridge and i am in need of a recipe. i am thinking i can make 2 different dishes with the amount i have. Day 9 and feeling great! (my mom and sister even jumped on board, i've inspired them!)

    Rotisserie Chicken?

    These have always been a go-to, healthy source of quick protein for me on nights I don't have time to cook. Are the rotisserie chickens you can buy in grocery stores typically compliant?
  17. So I've seen many versions very similar to this...tried it...sharing it...wondering how anyone else out there would improve it....would love feedback! Thanks. 3ish T clarified butter 1 1/2 cups diced onions 1 diced red pepper 1 diced yellow pepper 1 diced green pepper 2 t + minced garlic 3/4 head of cabbage chopped maybe about 1.5 lbs boned, skinned, chicken thighs 2 t (est.) Sesame oil 2T Red Thai curry paste 1 can of coconut milk (I actually used about 3/4 of it as I'd already started the can) ________________________________________ Cooked thighs at 425 for 14 minutes. Sauteed onions in 1 T clarified butter - long time on low to try to get browning/caramelizing Sauteed peppers in 1 T clarified butter and the garlic - pretty quick. Sauteed cabbage in 1T clarified butter. Put all veggies in a Tupperware container - mixed them up and stored away for lots of meals to come. In skillet, added a little sesame oil. Added the curry paste to release flavor. Added the coconut milk. Added the chicken - as cooking on a very, very low simmer, I cut the chicken into even smaller pieces (personal preference). Probably allowed to simmer on low for 20 minutes to soak up the flavor. Serving - placed a generous helping of veggies on my plate. Placed a serving of chicken on top.Heated, salted - and ate. ________________________________________________ Notes: I think I could have cooked all the veggies together...but I do think they cook differently, so chose to split it into 3 separate actions. The Thai flavor was NOT too strong. I actually think it could have been stronger, but my husband suggested it might be missing something other than the Thai curry paste. He suggested something with more of a punch like a Cayenne...something that stayed on the tongue. HAVE ANY SUGGESTIONS for any improvements? I think some type of approved nut butter would have been great - but I haven't yet found an approved version in any of my local stores. Still looking. Maybe coconut aminos, but I haven't found that yet either. THANKS!

    Store-bought Chicken

    Outside of organic chicken, which is sometimes out of my budget, to be honest, I'm having trouble finding chicken without any additives. All the chicken at my local grocer has been processed with "chicken broth." The ingredients to the broth are not broken down. Is this chicken OK in limited quantities? Or should I continue to only buy the organic chicken when the budget allows? Thank you!
  19. I'm starting my first W30 on June 4th. I'm a student who will be living on campus over the summer -- I'll have my own kitchen, which will make this more manageable. However, I am a student with not a ton to spend on food. Also without a car, my closest food options are Hannaford and a farmer's market (not sure on the quality there). If I can borrow a car I could get to Target and Wal Mart. Given my financial situation and these options, I'm not sure how feasible it will be to actually get good meat. I think I'm going to make good tuna and good eggs my priorities (because those seem to be the least costly), but I doubt I will be able to afford good chicken and turkey. If I just get standard poultry from Hannaford, am I defeating the purpose of a W30? Will my results drastically change? Also I'd love to hear about your experiences with meat shopping at Hannaford, Target, and Wal Mart. Any suggestions?
  20. I made Better Butter Chicken tonight from EverydayPaleo and remembered how delicious it is! Just thought that I would pass it on to anyone looking for a rich flavored chicken dish!!! Happy eating.... Heidi
  21. I live in Chicago and all of the places I'm finding that offer free-range or pasture raised turkey and chicken also mention organic feed. 1) Is turkey/chicken given organic feed out of the question for the Whole30 even though it is pasture raised? 2) Does anyone have a good website or know somewhere in Chicago that I could find free-range turkey or chicken not supplemented with any type of feed? Thanks and Happy Holidays!! Lauren
  22. So easy its dumb. I put all the ingredients in the slow cooker last night and turned it on low for 9 hours. Woke up to some DELISH soup for breakfast! Put the following in a crockpot: - 3 large or 4 small chicken breasts (mine were frozen) - 1 cup chicken broth - can of full fat coconut milk - can of diced tomatoes with juices (I used fire roasted and added a half lb of home roasted roma tomatoes I had) - one or two cloves of garlic - 2 tablespoons of italian seasoning - 1 tablespoon dried basil - other spices as you wish, I added some cayenne and red pepper flakes cause I like spicy! In the morning shred the chicken with two forks and then EAT UP

    Sick of Meat!!!

    I am in my second week and I am so sick of meat!!! I've never been very good at cooking meat anyway. But the first week everything I made from well fed and nom nom paleo was so good. But now everything I have as leftovers tastes too strongly spiced. Today I made pork chops and chicken breasts to get me thru until Sunday cooking day, but they both ended up dry and gross. Probably because I was cooking hungry and impatient. Now i'm discouraged! I have nothing to bring to work for lunch and I can't do eggs for lunch as I've been doing them for almost every breakfast!
