  1. Snacks

    I just started my whole30 Journey today got the cookbook (latest edition). I just want to know what all I can have as a snack between Lunch and dinner ? any help would be appreciated.
  2. Happy Thanksgiving all! I'm at the in-laws and have been offered La Croix. I know it's an approved partner, but so is Epic and some of their products have unapproved ingredients, like sugar, so are obviously out. I'm not too familiar with La Croix, but see this Lemon version I've been offered has "natural flavor." What is this natural flavor, is it approved, and if so, why is this natural flavor allowed?!! Thank you!
  3. Hi, I started whole30 recently (first timer). Tomorrow (October 15th) is going to be my 17th day. So far so good. Here comes the challenge: I need to attend a wedding reception tomorrow evening. I am in dilemma what should I eat at wedding etc. If I do not eat, that will look rude. Please advice. Thanks, O
  4. Can I have Coconut Water

    I searched the forum and read the program rules completely and haven't found an answer, so hopefully someone can help. I have 100% organic coconut water. Not coconut milk for coffee. Not coconut sugar. It has no sugar added, just plain coconut water. I ask because it's REALLY sweet so it might violate the "no substituting x for bad thing" rule. OR it might fall within the "fruit juice is ok" rule. (wait, is fruit juice ok? I did a search for "fruit" on the Whole30 program rules and it just says "fruit juice as a sweetener") Thanks very much! - Danielle
  5. This is Day #1 for me!! The guidelines say to eat your meals (protein + veges+ fat + fruit (opt)) and to have three big meals with no snacking in between. Kombucha (GT's specifically) is Whole30 compliant because it has fruit juice instead of added sugar. If I wanted to drink kombucha, when do I do this? Would it be instead of having some fruit during meals? The same would apply to coconut water.
  6. Day 3 and I think I could be getting a cold. Does anyone know if the Evolution drink Defense Up is compliant? Here are the ingredients. I was unsure of some of the purees and the ascorbic acid. Please help! Thanks! Orange juice, pineapple juice, mango puree, apple juice, acerola juice, ascorbic acid.
  7. Izzie Esque Drink

    Is Izzie Esque compliant? My husband wants something more than water and we don't like that Lacroix has bpa. It's less juice than regular Izzie. From their website: How is IZZE Esque sweetened? IZZE Esque is sweetened with 25% real fruit juices. No other sweeteners are added.
  8. Can I have V8 juice?

    I LOVE that OK to drink?
  9. Beverages?

    Just curious about approved drinks? I'm afraid that if I get bored with water & LaCroix I won't have any other options. What are some favorite Whole 30 compliant drinks (non-alcholic)?
  10. Spindrift Seltzer

    Hi, I've noticed the popularity of La Croix especially with Whole 30 instagrammers however Trader Joe's didn't carry it so I found something else there called Spindrift Seltzer. The drink is advertised as no sugar added and the ingredients are: sparkling water, raspberry puree, raspberry juice, fresh squeezed lime juice, natural flavor, fruit and vegetable juice for coloring. Link to the site: I have a couple questions about the ingredients, the lime juice was listed as fresh squeezed but the raspberry juice is just listed as raspberry juice (could this mean that there could be hidden sugar or would they have to list that out as a seperate component) same goes for raspberry puree is it okay to assume that raspberry puree is just mashed up raspberry with no added sugar? Additionally the nutrition label reads 2 grams of sugar, could this be the sugar that is naturally from raspberries? Thank you! Sarah
  11. My local shop sells 100% coconut water and it's really cheap! I could drink this by the litre but I'm not because I'm worried that it's just fattening or something - old food thoughts and associations are hard to shift. It comes in 300ml bottles - how much is ok to drink in a day?
  12. Fruit Juice

    Would like some guidance on the following: I read in the "Can I have…?" forum a suggestion made about adding some fruit juice to your sparkling water as a way to create a tasty alternative to drinking just plain water all day. However, I'm trying to avoid those blood sugar/ insulin spikes that I understand come with the naturally occurring sugar in fruit. So… Is adding 1-2 ounces of a pure tart cherry or cranberry juice, for example, acceptable as a between-meal beverage?? Thanks! Almost completed 2 weeks….
  13. Why...Starbucks...why?!

    My boss offered to buy us all coffee or tea this morning...I asked for a iced green tea, no sweetener. We even all wrote down our order for her yesterday to hand the barista to minimize confusion....there is also only 5 of us so nothing too crazy. *sigh* I am so glad I didn't just suck it down like I usually would...guess I had a feeling something would be wrong. I took one sip when the drinks got back to the office and ended up spitting it right back out because it was waaaaaay sweetened. Probably even more so than I would have sweetened it myself in the past...I'm going to have to find a way to dump the thing without my boss noticing...I don't want her to feel bad since it isn't her fault, and there is no way to take it back since our office is in the middle of nowhere and she grabbed them on her way in. Oh well...plain ol regular hot green tea for me today...
  14. I could use some clarification on the "no honey" part of Whole30 as it applies to drinks. Take a look at the following attached food labels. (You'll probably need to click on the picture to see the details.) Picture 1: Label for drink with honey Picture 2: Label for 100% juice I realize water would be better than either drink. However, of the two drinks shown, wouldn't the one with the honey be the better choice (setting aside the Vitamin C piece for a sec) - i.e. cause less of a sugar rush or on-going craving for sugar? Thanks for your help.
  15. Hi, I'm doing my first Whole30 (I'm in the UK) and really confused about drinks. I have a Purdey's multivitamin drink which contains fruit juices from concentrate. Am I right in thinking this makes it non-compliant? Its the same with my coconut water but coconut water from concentrate. Does anyone have any recommendations for complaint cold drinks in the UK other than water with lemon and limes? Thanks
  16. Does anyone have an idea for a non-coffee based source of caffeine that fits within Whole30 guidelines?
  17. Neuro Drinks and Milk

    Hello. I have found that the Neuro Sonic energy drink works really well for me as an activator when I am having trouble with energy/focus/stress. I am about to try the Whole30 once more, but would love any advice on supplements/foods that could help me to replicate the effects of the drink without the added sugar content and dodgier ingredients. From what I can tell, the active ingredients are: Vitamin D (200 IU), Thiamin (0.45ms), Riboflavin (0.6mg), Niacin (5mg), Vitamin B6 (4mg), and Vitamin B12 (6mcg) as well as a proprietary blend of Vaffeine, L-theanine (L-TeaActie), Choline, alphoscerate (Alpha GPC), Phosphatidylsenne, and Resveratrol. I also found that the last time I tried the Whole30 my milk cravings (particularly when on the rag) were out of control. I would love to hear if anyone has found a way to curb milk cravings, or has an idea what makes them so powerful (particularly in lady time). Thanks.
  18. Hi all, I have found a fruit tea that I really like, but one of the ingredients listed is Natural Flavour. I emailed the company and this was their response: "The ‘flavour' that is listed in many of our flavoured teas is Nature Identical flavour. These are compound made of all natural molecules, made in an artificial process. This is not artificial flavouring and therefore does not have any numbers or codes, it is made from compounds identical to what is found in nature. So Strawberry Nature Identical flavour will be made from compounds identical to those flavour and aroma compounds found in real strawberries. We use a higher concentration of these compounds than what is found in nature to give the teas a more intense taste and to maintain seasonal consistencies among the flavours." Would you have such a tea during the Whole 30 or not? Do you think it is compliant?
  19. Drinks Anyone? bf is attempting the Whole30 challenge and he's going nuts bc he can't use the flavored powder/liquid anymore. He hates coffee and the doctor said since he's had kidney stones he should stop drinking tea but if increases your chances of having them, especially if you've had them in the past. What other options are there other than coconut water, tea, coffee, and regular? Anyone?
  20. I have recently started the program and was wondering if there are any recommendations for endurance drinks? I have seen only 1 thing posted: coconut water, any other ideas?? Thanks in advance!!
  21. Kombucha Question

    I bought my first bottle of kombucha last week, and I really liked it! I don't really like strong drinks, so I was pouring out a little bit each night after dinner and then filling my glass the rest of the way with seltzer water. My only question is how to mix the culture evenly throughout the drink - it seemed to be all at the bottom, so I shook it, and learned that kombucha is carbonated, lol. Any suggestions for making sure I don't end up with the whole culture at the bottom by the end of the week?
  22. No-body has mentioned using unsweetened cocoa powder to have a hot cocoa drink. Is that compliant? Would be yum....
  23. Teavana JavaVana Mate

    I have some Teavana teas and realized that almost all of them have candied fruit in them (no wonder they are so good!) but I have some of the JavaVana Mate and I was wondering if it is compliant. Here are the ingredients: Black tea, roasted mate tea, cocoa bits, flavoring (chocolate, cappuccino), vanilla bits. I think the chocolate would make it no bueno, but wanted to double check! Thanks!
  24. Vega Smoothies

    Hi Everyone! I'm currently on Day 3. I've taken away carbonated drinks, and majority all juices due to sugar but I'm having a hard time finding something to drink. I don't like Coffee or Tea so that's kind of hard. Am I stuck with only water??? I've drank Vega Smoothies w/ lots of fruit (bananas,peaches,blackberries, blueberries, strawberries) With 2tbsp of Almond Milk and Coconut Milk mostly in the mornings for post-workout/ accompanying my breakfast for the last couple of days, but reading the forums that mention it must not be a good idea! Taking it off my daily regimen, but I do need an alternative drink!!! HELP!
  25. Bolthouse farms

    I purchased and tried the the Strawberry Banana drink from Bolthouse farms. For the majority of the whole30 I've been staying away from fruit juice and smoothies. The ingredients are as follows: Strawberry puree, banana puree, pear juice from concentrate, apple juice from concentrate , apple puree, Pectin, Vitamin C, Natural flavors. I am about done with my first whole30 although I have reset a few times. Is this drink whole30 compliant? Best, Kevin
