    I think some of W30 restrictions are simply frivolous. If you have previously eliminated dairy, eliminating butter & fermented makes no sense whatsoever. Embracing all tubers but white potatoes makes no sense whatsoever. That said, I did fine, but after finishing it fell into deep depression --> fruit, of course. (Sigh) Overall, yes, W30 is easy, just won't do it again because I don't see no point to reject perfectly good food. We do too much of it anyway.

      I wonder if non-alcoholic wine could be used for cooking? One attempts to cook off the alcohol anyway, right? I actually think cooking with wine wouldn't really count on a whole 30 anyway. There's so little alcohol left and it's split among all the servings in the whole recipe plus it's just for flavoring. And what are they trying to get you to eliminate? The alcohol or the sulfites or both?
      I didn't read anything that made a distinction between alcohol and sulfites.
      Just no alcohol.
      Perhaps I didn't dig deeply enough.
      I've heard that a couple of the non-alcoholics are passable... I always cook with good wine/liquor when I do. Skipping the alcohol completely in the cooking process would skip the chance to let the alcohol liberate some of the flavors that water alone cannot though... yes?

      I think I live close enough to the edge of this that I'm just not very interested in doing it completely... I darn near live there so I don't see a real point I guess.
      I admit I'll be glad to have the holiday season over and all my travel done with so I can start picking up my real raw dairy again.

        For me, dairy -- even raw and fermented -- upsets my stomach, except for butter which I do use. i don't see any reason not to at this point, really, since it is so minimal. So being without dairy is no trouble.

        Potatoes are bad for me. one potato leads to binging, so I stick to sweet. It's just how I respond.

        I don't do sweetners, other than the occasional dark chocolate, and I actually did give that up for 30 days. I figure having chocolate once a month or less is no big deal. But, I can also do without it so all good.

        never did alcohol and the like, so that's easy.

        The rest is pretty straight forward and easy, so.

          I could do whole 30 if not for the sweetener and caffeine restriction. I need my daily coffee so badly.

            i suppose i'm doing caffeine, now, actually. I've been off caffeine for about a week now. It's hasn't been hard, but I don't drink coffee -- just tea. So I switched to a different tea (peppermint, red bush).

              There is no caffeine restriction on Whole 30... not that I could find.

              Rooibos tea is really good.

              I also like a peppermint, spearmint, raspberry leaf, and chamomile mix.

              Herbals are great.

                It seems I did a Whole 30 without realizing I was doing one. Cool beans. I didn't feel restricted at all. As for tea, I received a cool cup and a tea infuser for Christmas (yes, a month early. It is how we roll) so have been drinking the hell out of some tea. Well, herbal stuff and Rooibos as actual tea gives me a headache. Good stuff indeed, though it makes it harder for me to squeeze in all my coffee drinking

                  I know a lot of people feel this way, but I love my numbers! I get a lot of satisfaction out of planning my menus and tracking my macronutrients.
