  1. Hi! I think Whole30/ Melissa needs to outlaw larabars and anything that comes in a small wrapper. I never would have even known what they were or tried them if they weren’t mentioned in the book so much. After looking at this forum I realized a lot of people are having issues with "treating" themselves with a half Larabar. I’m on week two and was doing so well, but then saw Larabars at Trader Joe’s and got one and before you know it, I was back in the store buying five. The Whole30 book talks about the "spirit" of whole30, yet Lara Bars and Epic bars literally the only brand and thing allowed that can be eaten from a wrapper. My guess is Whole30 gets paid to promote these products. But if Whole30 outlawed chips, then why would they allow sweets in a wrapper labeled "cookie." The "Cashew Cookie" larabar messes with my head. I just ate cookies on Whole30. I think that anything sweet and processed should either be homemade or outlawed. Larabars are like candy and I just don't think it's right to put them in the book so many times. I never ever would have even looked in the "bar" section of my grocery store. I get they're for emergencies, but the WHOLE point of WHOLE30 is to do things whole heartily. Wrappers are cheating and i kinda feel like i failed and need to start over again because i ate so many lara bars in two days.
  2. When is it okay to have snacks? Sometimes if I'm more active in the mornings I get hungry before lunch or in between lunch and dinner? I'm on day 11 and still have a lot of cravings...mostly because I wasn't struck with the snacking rule. Also, is saving my fruit for last during lunch or dinner the same as substituting it for dessert? Lastly, I'll be traveling to my parents house over Labor Day weekend. I plan to cook a few meals and they know about the program but I'm not convinced I'll be able to have everything they make. Is it okay to make a trail mix (almonds, macadamia nuts and raisins) to have incase? I can't have the rx bars bc all the compliant ones I've found have cashews in them which I don't like eating bc my three year old is allergic to them. I found one larabar I could have, but it's cherry pie and that seems like more of a "treat" than a homemade trail mix. I also have some complaint beef sticks to take as well. Thanks!

    NEED 4th of July Recipes please!

    Hi! My boyfriend and I are supposed to be doing a BBQ with some friends. We are planning to smoke some brisket, make some side veggies, and have been asked to bring a dessert. Does anyone have any suggestions for compliant desserts? The host absolutely HATES coconut, so my plan to bring fruit salad with coconut whipped cream probably won't go over too well. I know desserts aren't exactly in the spirit of Whole30, but if you have any ideas they would be very much appreciated. Thank you!
  4. Hi! I'm doing my second Whole 30 starting today, and decided this time to join the forum. Looking forward to sharing ideas, support, complaints, tips and emojis. My boss and a close friend were also supposed to start today, but they both decided not to last minute. I respect their decisions and am going to continue my Whole30 solo. Of course today is someone's birthday at work so we're going to have sweets this afternoon. Since it's only Day 1 I feel confident I can avoid them, but any tips for long-term 'saying no thanks' to sweets in the workplace? Thanks

    Hello all, I need help! I am meeting some people tonight that I only know through a Paleo facebook group. We are meeting at a restaurnat that serves all Paleo food and even AIP compliant food, no grains (except rice) allowed, all healthy cooking oils, the whole 9 yards. Just found out yesterday they are part of "restaurant week" and will have a pre fix menu which would make dinner a whole lot more affordable. Of course the 3 course meal comes with dessert. My husband and I are on day 22 of our January whole30 so the question is do I order the pre fix meal and eat the desert, order the meal and just skip the desert or hope they still have their regular menu and pay for that (guess actually in that case it would be cheaper to still get the pre fix menu and skip dessert). Here are the ingredients for the two dessert I can chose from, would any of them be "ok" on whole30. I almost hate to ask because I know that the answer is no and I know that and would feel like I didn't do the whole program if I ate it so probably I should just skip it. 1. Apple crumble: cinnamon roasted apples with cassava flour 2. Avocado tart: avocado puree with pomelo, lemon and a cocnut flour crust Dinner is tonight, so any insight today would be great! Thank you!

    Fruits and nuts

    Hello there, I have a question about the program rules. I know that fruits, dried fruits, nuts and seeds are allowed to eat. Is it a problem if I have some fruits (1 or 2 depending on the size, I mean like either an apple or 2 small clementines for example) and approximately a handful of nuts, (occasionally) dried fruits with my 3 meals per day? For instance I have omelette for breakfast with a lot of veggies AND a fruit and some nut, then again lot of veggies and protein for lunch and dinner, side of a fruit and nuts. (For pictures of the foods find me on Instagram: ) Is that okay, or should I cut down on these things and stick to the meat and veggie version? As for me I don't think these are snacks since I eat them only with my meals, but I don't eat them together. I mean it would be awkward for me to eat broccoli with apples. I usually don't have snacks between the meals, only in those cases when I do exercises and it's not time yet to eat lunch or dinner, then I have a post workout meal, but otherwise no snacking. So what do you think? Is it okay?

    Little Victories

    Two victory anecdotes from Easter weekend - I stayed 99% on plan at my mother-in-law's yesterday! The ham and sausage were your typical grocery store offering so I'm sure there were some undesirable additives, but I kept my protein portion to the small side and loaded my plate with veggies. I passed over the dinner rolls, the regular butter, the dill dip, the wine, and THE APPLE CRISP (my absolute very favorite dessert), so I'm calling it a win. Some thoughtful person left an Easter candy on my chair when I got into work this morning. I didn't even consider eating it - just deposited it in the communal candy bowl on my coworker's desk.

    Sweetness Burst

    Prior to doing my first Whole30, I did not consider myself addicted to sugar. In fact, I did not think I had a sugar dragon to slay. Well...I'm on day 22 and I'm beginning to think otherwise. My pre-Whole30 life did NOT consist of desserts on a regular basis, an abundance of fruit, soda or other sugary drinks, etc. I preferred salty snacks to sugary ones. Overall, I would say I was a pretty healthy processed foods in the house, meat, lots of veggies, farm fresh eggs, etc. During the Whole30, I have not had sugar cravings and have not indulged in tons of fruit (had an occasional apple with almond butter). As I begin thinking about life after Whole30, I find myself perusing Pinterest in search of paleo treats. I'm thinking about rules that I'm going to create for myself, i.e. paleo dessert one day a week or on a special occasion, All the while, having an out of body experience, looking at this person (myself), thinking "this is not don't want these desserts"!!! And, I should mention that part is true. At this moment, I do not want the treats I'm bookmarking for later. Does anyone have any thoughts about this? Could I have a sugar dragon that hasn't really reared his head during Whole 30, but is trying to come on full force after Whole30 (perhaps because that's when sweets will be allowed)? Suggestions for curbing this after Day30? Thanks!

    Dessert? do I figure out what to add first? I would like a piece of cake....but do I need to just add dairy milk first? Or if I DO add dairy can I add not just milk but ice cream as well? Also, when can I start 80/20? After I've finished re-introducing stuff? I would like 3 cheat meals a day because I'm doing Primal 80/20. I'm just not sure when I can start me cheat!
