Apple cider

Recommended Posts

Yes, as long as there's no added off-plan stuff it's fine.

Keep in mind you're not intended to drink juice straight. You can use it in recipes that need a touch of sweetness or put a small splash of juice in water or sparkling water for a change of pace.

So, why is apple cider in the drinks check list on the Whole30 website if you can't drink it?

I've answered your question in the other thread and we would ask you not to cross post across threads as this is specifically against forum rules.

 

No one is disputing that apple cider is listed in the beverage section of the list because it is in fact a beverage but it is the manner in which the rules call it out to be used that you should be going with.

and 'vegetable juices' - also on that list?

 

what about a small glass of juice alongside a meal that is already fully compliant?

Make a salad dressing with it, use it in a soup, use it to simmer ground meat and shredded cabbage, just don't drink it straight. 

 

This is the discussion surrounding drinking your food.  It centres on smoothies but any fruit juice or vegetable juice would be the same answer.  And even though you are asking about vegetable juice, once they strip all the fibre away and add a fruit or veggie that contains sweetness in order to make the juice palatable, you are still introducing quite the sugar hit.

 

Food that you drink sends different satiety signals to your brain than food that you chew. So when you drink your meal, your brain isn’t getting the feedback it needs to tell your body that it’s had enough of what it needs. Plus, smoothies are generally really fruit-heavy, and starting your day off with a liquid sugar-bomb sets you up for cravings, hunger, and volatile energy levels throughout the day. In summary, we’d rather you just eat the food, and skip the smoothie.
