hfowler Posted July 23, 2019 Share Posted July 23, 2019 I am on Day 8 of my first Whole30 and I've been 100% compliant. While my husband is not doing Whole30 with me, he is the one who does most of the cooking and he's been making all of our dinners for the last 8 days (directly from the Whole30 cookbook). As I write this, he's had the Italian Beef Roast in the slow-cooker all day. When I went through our pantry on Day (-2), I checked all the beef and chicken stock that was in there. Fortunately, all the cartons we had were compliant and I told him as such. However, when he went to the store on Sunday, for some reason he decided to grab another carton of beef stock (even though we have one in the pantry), and while it's the same BRAND as the compliant one we have, it's NOT the same VERSION (we have the low-salt in the pantry and he bought the regular), and has some slightly different ingredients, including RED WINE! I didn't know he bought more beef stock and he thought he was going on my "ok" based on the brand (therefore assuming there was no need to check the ingredient list because I'm the only one actually eating Whole30) and I only just now noticed the ingredient list because it's sitting on the counter, empty, in front of my face with the rest of the recyclables. This beef is meant to be used for at least 2 meals this week! I texted him that it has wine in it and his response was "the alcohol would have burned off". (I know that's not the point but I didn't argue with him.) I haven't had any yet but I can't tell him I refuse to eat what he's cooking when he's being so supportive, not to mention how much of a waste of food/money that would be. Bottom line: I'm going to eat what he made tonight and for any leftovers that result. Does this situation require a restart or is it ok for me to add on extra days past Day 30? (Incidentally, I already decided on Day 2 that I am going to make this a Whole45 or 60 or 90). Thanks for any advice and support! hfowler Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
