If you have not tried it before, broth set with gelatine in a savory gello is quite a neutralish filler as well.

    and, thank you, I will. Soooo slow at work. It is STampede day here, so like nobody is at work.
    Avocado is a strong allergen for me Buuuttt! Konjak? how interesting. I looked it up and it is a safe starch on GAPS. Never heard of it thankyou. I will look out for it. I do like gelatine a lot. I will put it in my broth, good idea.

    Ooooh! stampede, fun. I should make it up there one of these days. My daughters boyfriend's parents are Calgarians.

      Those miracle noodles can run right through you like chia seeds, so use carefully! I'd rather have zucchini or squash "noodles" myself, but I'm unfamiliar with GAPS protocol.

      I've been feeling like dog doo all week, so I think today's going to be my D1. Bulletproof coffee with collagen powder pre WOD, then a grassfed burger patty, fried farm egg, avocado, and vinegar-slaw for lunch. I'm making a green gazpacho and salmon for dinnah. Maybe a nectarine or some berries if I still want something sweet. Sitting down and writing this out is making me drool...

      Have a great trip Leida!

        Okay, back from vacation and ready to do Whole30. Stepped on the scale and took my measurements. Now sipping black coffee and preparing a shopping list - going to make zoodles (zucchini noodles) later, and must make a new batch of homemade mayo, etc.

          Alrighty, so Sunday ended up as D1. Grapefruit mint margaritas were too enticing.
          Jackie, what recipes did you find? I'm making this tomorrow:

          Masala Chili with Kale & Kohlrabi |

          Yesterday was a veg omelette, bacon, grapes, and an avocado burger with a sweet potato and a nectarine (darn those are good right now...), then steamed mussels in tomato sauce before bed. A little higher in carbs than some would say is okay, but I've crashed on both W30 and 21DSD because it was just too low carb. Even at this level, I still get keto-breath. Today's been delicious, with eggs, wild boar sausage and green gazpacho so far. I plan on polishing off the cole slaw and last burger, and will probably get back into that gazpacho tonight. Planning on taking a looooong walk at sunset.
          I really wanted some chocolate last night after inhaling those mussels, even though I was totally stuffed. It reminded me of the SAD old days, and was a quick reminder why I need these WOE "resets" from time to time.

            I'm going to make the "zoodles" that Mark mentioned in passing in the links post yesterday. Bought zucchinis and other stuff today. Also ordered my gold-plated bacon from US Wellness Meats.

            Today went well food-wise. No cravings, but man, massive headache toward the latter half of the day. I'm guessing it's partially from how lousy my food intake was when I was on vacation for the past four days.

                Can I join you guys? I just started a Whole30 this month with a brief pause for the holiday (where I made some very bad choices!), but now I'm back. I have one major event that will be non-Whole30, but other than that I'm committed! Too much dark chocolate, too much alcohol, too much rice, too many taters...all sneaking in there. It's time to get back on track!

                This morning I had three eggs in olive oil for bkfst and a teaspoon of coconut oil in my coffee. Was called to a meeting and had to skip lunch, so unexpected IF. Dinner was two porkchops and sauteed zucchini from the garden. I just had an apple because I still felt hungry.

                  The more the merrier!

                  Yesterday went great, even got the nacho-lovin', pizza-shovelin' boyfriend to eat kale and kohlrabi! And he liked it!
                  Bulletproof coffee until Crossfit, then lamb masala chili, 2 eggs, and raspberries for first meal. I was pretty full for most of the day, and went to yoga later in the evening. Then more chili, gazpacho, and some berries for second meal. It's nice to get back to eating 2x/day, and so much easier on the food budget.

                  But... booze will still be my downfall. I think I'll do better to eliminate the dairy of non-butter variety, rice, white potatoes, paleofied junk foods, added sugars, and severely limit alcohol this time around. So, it's more of a Partial-30 for me. (P30?)

                    Oh dear! back today one for me. Hormones kicked in, was feeling down and tired, and I semi binged. Had potato, potato chips, chocolate and sugar..... mmm maybe I am not quite ready. Doc has just put me on progesterone again that I had been off for a couple of months, I think it will help.

                      Sorry if I sound stupid but what is W30? I just joined the forum and plan on starting Mark's 21-day challenge Monday

                        @thewildirishgirl - Absolutely!

                        @Sophie - You rock. I'm probably going to go off W30 this Sunday when we get together with our friends. I'll see if we can make Mark's taco salad there - everyone else will have shells, I'll just do the taco meat with avocado, etc., and will bake kale chips - but I have a feeling I will have some wine. I think the key, for those of us who are doing this to kick us back into primal mode, is to be lenient at times, as long as we're mindful about what we're consuming. Because life is short, you know?

                        @Silvergirl - No worries! You had a non-primal day. That's cool. When you're ready, go back to primal, and to W30. I'm taking advantage of the seasonal fruit - OMG, those Rainer cherries!!! Maybe go for those, if you get in the mood for something (awesomely) sweet?

                        @caradoerr - Whole30 (W30) is a way of eating for a month (or, really, thirty days) when you are strictly paleo. No grains; no dairy; no added sugar; extremely minimal processed food; no alcohol. It's meant to help you reset your system so that after the thirty days, you slowly add back in a food (say, dairy) to see if you have a reaction to it (e.g., acne, bloating). Some people (hi there!) do W30 not for food reactions but as a way to refocus on eating as cleanly as possible. Here's the official W30 website, which really spells everything out.

                          Oh that is awesome! That being said, I would love to start that Monday, but I need advice. I am a new mom of a 6 month old, and there is nothing better than relaxing with a glass of wine after a hard day. Any advice on relaxation techniques without the wine?

                            Lots of sunshine. A hot tub. Enjoying the taste of fabulous food (did I mention Rainer cherries?). A squeeze of lemon or orange in a glass of ice water.

                              Got my order of Whole30-approved gold-plated bacon! (That's from US Wellness Meats - just pork and salt; nothing else. Gold plated because it's expensive when that's all you order!) Made turkey-bacon-lettuce wraps for lunch today (the turkey was Boar's Head Natural Turkey; not perfect, but no nitrates/nitrites, and definitely gluten-free) with my homemade mayo. OMG, so good!!!

                                Hahaha oh goodness, lemon in my water is the best you got? just kidding. I am so determined! Someone asked me today if I was expecting (I just had a baby 6 months ago.) I felt terrible about myself and then realized I had no one to blame but myself. If pay day were sooner I would be starting w30 sooner. Come on Monday!!!!
