388gigi Posted August 24, 2014 Share Posted August 24, 2014 I've seen some conflicting posts about juice and coffee. I have a thermomix and often make a vegie juice. It uses the entire vegetable and fruit. A typical juice of mine will be kale/spinach, cucumber, apple, ginger/tumeric, mint/parsley. Sometimes I'll use other greens if I have them, like celery, broccoli etc. I add a little bit of coconut water to thin it down as it is quite thick from using all of the veg or fruit. Is this juice acceptable under whole30? I would have it WITH breakfast, not as a replacement. Or as a snack or PWO meal. Now I have a question on coffee. Also in my thermomix, I make a dairy free coffee. I make my own almond, hazelnut or cashew milk (about 15-20 grams of nuts and 180 grams filtered water) and add brewed coffee, a dash of coconut sugar and sometimes a dash of vanilla bean extract. I know that coconut sugar is out, that's fine. Would this coffee be ok to have WITH breakfast (not a replacement)? Is vanilla bean extract ok if it's 100% vanilla bean? I do have vanilla bean powder as well. I have checked out the bulletproof coffee. It doesn't really appeal to me, especially if it's meant to be a meal replacement. I"m also confused though as I thought butter wasn't allowed? Unless whole 30 people are using ghee? I guess my main question is, if I have breakfast, coffee and juice all before lunch - is that not really following the plan? Thanks Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
