  1. Just started a whole30, bought the meal planner and all the ingredients I didn't have for the first day, and then I realized... I normally eat this much meat in a month. Not a day. I'm not vegan or vegetarian, I've just never felt like I needed to eat that much meat. Surely suddenly downing 115g bacon and "1 turkey sausage" (assuming that's like maybe 250g? I bought 300g of it just to be sure) in a day can't go well, right? Sure enough, I started feeling tired and sluggish some time after my breakfast consisting mainly of bacon. Not completely sure it was the culprit, but - how do you cut back on meat in the meal planner? Not completely eliminate it - getting some in small quantities a couple times a week would be nice. I tried applying the "vegetarian" filter to most of my meals in a week, but turns out only 3 lunch/dinner recipes have this tag, and I'm not sure I want to prepare me 40 servings of ratatouille during the course of the program. Cycling between the "Whole30" and "Vegetarian" meal plans is definitely an option - the latter seems to have a few more lunches/dinners if you eliminate all the things eliminated in a regular W30, it's just not very convenient to have to completely rewrite the entire meal plan several times a week. If anyone's had a similar experience I'd love to hear from you! I really like the feel of this meal planner and it'd be sad to have to resort to using something else :/ (I guess I could just decrease the quantities of meat and increase those of everything else in the recipes?)

    Meat Delivery Services

    Hi! I live in Michigan and am having a hard time finding bacon, other pork, and ground chicken that is pastured or at least less industrialized, even at the health food stores. I am looking into delivery but I thought this would be a good place to get some feedback on a good and reasonably affordable service. Thanks!
  3. Hello! I have a question related to meat consumption. I increased a lot my animal protein intake during my whole30. Some scientific studies showed a correlation between a high meat consumption and some diseases and cancers. I know that it’s only 30 days, but what would you recommend in term of meat and fish consumption post-whole30 ? Thank you!
  4. 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
  5. I ate at work event where the main course was steak and veggies in a light port wine reduction. I removed the mushrooms cooked in Boursin and tried my best to move around the meat and veggies out of the reduction and didn't dip them in the sauce. Did I totally mess this up? I'm on day 4 and would really like to not start over. What would others do with no other meal options and a table full of important people not to mess up in front of? Mind you I skipped dessert and rolls so I'm feeling like this is a huge win no matter what! Thanks!

    Meatloaf Drippings

    What do you all do with your meatloaf drippings? Funny as it sounds, I think the meatloaf that I made today is only the second one I've ever made. I didn't have a special pan for it, so I just baked it in a glass baking dish. But on taking it out of the oven, I find that it's swimming in grease, and not just the clear stuff... something I'm not sure what to do with, as strange as that may be. With my roast chicken drippings I make gravy, or cook with the fat. Same for turkey and roast beef and hamburgers. I don't like the taste of the pork loin or roast drippings, and the smell bothers me, so I tend to discard those, but I save other types of pork drippings (bacon, pancetta, etc.) to use with cooking other stuff, like eggs or potatoes. But those meatloaf drippings - not the clear oil part (which I will definitely be saving to use as pan lubricant for something else) but the gelatinous fluffy looking part. Can I even use that for something else?
  7. Hi everyone this is my first Whole30 and overall I think it's going really well. Today is the halfway mark and I just can't get this off my mind. I have been a vegetarian/vegan for the past 9 years and am now eating animal protein because I am a firm believer that the soy and grain replacement products for meat have been extremely detrimental to my health. I also can't see a way to get enough protein from just plants themselves. Many vegans out there may disagree with me, but after 9 years of trying to nourish myself I am only left with IBS and other inflammatory problems in my body. On the Whole30 my energy is still leveling out but overall I feel much better. HOWEVER, I can't help but feel like I am eating way too much animal meat! I have reinforced my belief system for so long that humans can live healthy, long, sustainable lives completely from plants and too much meat can ruin your health. The Whole30 is really shaking up this value. I have especially drank the cool-aid when it comes to the negative affects of the meat industry on climate change. On Whole30, the only way I can seem to make meals work is if there is an animal protein on the plate. I suppose it's a bit of an existential crisis for me. Does anyone have any research, reflections, or thoughts on this topic they would like to share with me? I know this is not the majority. Most people go through this epic lifestyle change to become vegetarians/vegans and here I am going in the opposite direction. Thank you in advance for all of your help.
