    @clarkee Sounds like you pulled in a great haul on your market trip! Have you chatted with the butcher's yet at vincenzo's? I haven't found any good food sources in Kitchener outside of the market but I'm hoping you find stuff on your end of town.

    @tomi yesterday was day 2 and I'm already causing problems My auntie's surprise birthday party had a set menu outside of whole30 timelines and it caused a curfuffle with my cousin's when I said that I was only coming to the after party. They're trying to find any way for me to go to the restaurant. But I'mma stick to it for as long as I can. I've tried a whole30 before and didn't make it but damn it It's the best time to do it!

    Whole30 Day 2

    Meal 1- Fasted

    Meal 2- Leftover porkchop and cauliflower

    Snack- coffee @ DVLB (best coffee shop... in the world... at least to me!)

    Meal 3- Big plate of "what the hell is that!?!" Sweet potato strings, diced onion, garlic, salt, pepper, coconut milk, tandoori spice, and pork. Ugly as sin but delicious! I think a bit of nut butter and sriracha would have made it a killer pad thai. Also (not pictured) 2 soft boiled eggs and 6 olives on the side.

    Meal 3.5 (Dessert) 1/2 grapefrut. 1 apple sprinkled with cinnimon and cocoa powder.

    That plate of 'what the hell is that' looks fantastic. I might need to make that for dinner today!

    I agree Looks like a lot of the indian dishes my hubby throws together. And few things in this world taste better than Tandoori! Someday I want a real tandoori oven in my backyard!

    Whole(insert#) is better than no whole at all!

    Haven't been to Vincenzo's yet. Do you ever go to David's Gourmet? Not the Waterloo location cuz it's not great, but the Kitchener one? They have a pretty good butcher with locally sourced meats and lots of organic fruit and veggies. Expensive but that seems to be the case anywhere I try to buy local and organic. Oh and where is this coffee shop you love so much? Di

    @Clarkie When you're referring to David's gourmet I'm assuming you mean the healthy haven over on bruce st.? I used to love going there... still do just less now that finances are tight! (did I mention I'm out of work in a few days??). I started going much less once Vincenzo's and Eating Well Organically (both uptown and both closer) started stocking Giddy Yoyo's chocolate. Less incentive to go down. Vincenzo's is also (in my own opinion) the better store as far as food quality and variety.

    Ya, Bruce street is where I go. It's the closest place to my neck of the woods. Maybe I will make a trip to Vincenzo's part of my excursion to DVLB.
    I watched Fathead last night. I am a pretty mellow, trusting person and it made me so mad that we have all been lied to for so long. I also feel like a sh*tty Mom for feeding my kids a "healthy" diet all these years. I also wonder how much of both my parents heart disease was caused by what they ate?? My dad died at 66 of a heart attack and I just lost my mom in July. She was 86 but I can't help but wonder if her many ailments could have been prevented and or cured with dietary changes?
    If only I had known sooner....sorry for the vent, hard day today, I miss her alot.

    Praying for your job situation to improve very soon. All the best. Di

    Hey Diane, really sorry to hear about your parents and even more sorry to hear that you are having a hard time grieving. I'm glad that you at least got to do some further research and enjoyed fathead and I think you'll like this follow up so I wanted to share it:

    Fat Head Followup - YouTube

    It's an update that the writer did 3 years later on where he's been since.


    Now to catch up on food journal!

    Whole30 Day 3

    Meal 1- 2 soft boiled eggs

    Meal 2- Left over pork chop

    Coffee at DVLB

    Meal 3- 5 Eggs with NomNom Paleo's home made sriratcha.

    On day 3 I got a hankering for making sriracha sauce. Turned out well but now I want to buy a better blender so I can get it really ground down! It's chunkier than store bought but it is DAMN good! Made it with green jalapeños instead of red as well as red thai chilli's.

    In retrospect I probably should have taken a photo of it from the side of the harmony bottle that I stored it in



    Whole30 Day 4

    Meal 1- Half a turkey leg, 2 eggs

    Double Americano from William's Coffee pub

    Meal 2- Other half of the turkey leg

    Meal 3- Roasted chicken, riced cauliflower (which completely fooled my neice), and molokhia soup (middle eastern soup consisting of the molokhia plant (frozen), broth, cumin, fresh garlic, and a cooking fat). Made mouth happy!

    Your siracha looks good and so does your menu. I will watch the Fathead followup tonight. Thanks again for all your help. You are a wealth of information. Hope you have a great weekend. Di

    Thanks for that Fathead follow-up, ecks. I'm on that list of people who give Naughton credit for changing my life, and seeing how he has changed his own life is amazing. That is what is so cool about this whole lifestyle, so many interesting, intelligent people ascribe to it.
