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!
Just started my vegan whole30 and on day 6. Yay!! I am also reading It Starts With Food and finding it helpful in understanding the underlying reasoning, which helps keep motivation up. As I understand it, the idea is to eliminate all inflammatory foods and then slowly introduce ingredients to gauge their effect on our body. Given this, why are red meats allowed as part of whole30? The link between animal fats and inflammation has been established well beyond doubt, and so is its harmful effect on the gut bacterial fauna (which in turn leads to inflammation and tissue damage). Grilling it only makes the effect more potent. So why are *any* animal products allowed (instead of merely cutting down on dairy) as part of whole30? Has anyone here who has, e.g., arthritis or IBS here noticed difference after whole30 with vs without animal products? Thanks! Rahul
