LDT, congrats on day 3. By the way, I've followed those paleo blogs you mentioned. And followed them on Pinterest too. Started a new paleo Pinterest board, yay I actually tried out paleo a couple years ago. Would like to give it a try again, and this time eat more fruits and veggies.

Awesome SJ! Sometimes there are contradictions on the blogs, but you just have to read through them and see what personally works. One of the things I'm doing differently with this particular W30 is making a conscious effort to eat breakfast....last time it was just green smoothies for breakfast, and wehav made me see the errors of my ways.

I would love to have an 'Arnold Palmer' right now ( ice tea and lemonade ), but will just drink tea. It's OK though. Only 27 more days

I think what I'd like to do is whole foods with a leaning toward paleo. My husband really loves beans and rice, and other grains. So, technically we'll be "whole foods" or clean eating I guess? We also like greek yogurt, cottage cheese, etc. So I guess that's not paleo/primal either?

I just made a cucumber and radish (both thinly sliced) salad, with olive oil, acv, salt & pepper. Good stuff.

If you eat Paleo+ dairy, that's generally considered "Primal". I adore beans and rice but can't eat them much any more.

And cucumbers and radishes sound delicious. Love both!

Do you have a bad reaction to them?

He likes beans & rice and is a little bit lactose intolerant. Like, he can eat yogurt but not a whole bunch of cheese or ice-cream. And he doesn't eat shellfish or pork.

I eat shellfish, pork, dairy, beans, rice... any of that. No reactions I can notice. But I have some issues with sugar, and heavy carb meals. That seems to be what I need to steer clear of for optimal health.

I think ldt is right, we ALL have issues with sugary, carb-heavy meals. It just took me a while to connect the dots...

Today's menu (in support of ldt):
Breakfast: sautéed spinach and mushroom with 2 eggs, coffee with light coconut milk
Lunch: the usual salad, extra broccoli
Dinner: probably paleo orange chicken with cauliflower rice, but I had better stop yapping and get on that!
No snacks, no cheats like ghostly likes to say...

Aww shucks, wehav... That was nice of you doing that just for me.

SJ..not to be top "indelicate" but beans and rice create so much bloating and gas, it's not even worth it to me any longer..... Especially white beans, which are my favorite...white beans cooked down with a ham bone, served over rice...good Lord.... I better stop talking about it..... Remember, rice is sugar even though it's gluten free ( see Ghostly, I was paying attention after all)..... Sugar is just awful for me. It makes me hurt , it gives me restless leg syndrome at night, It makes me want to eat more sugar, it give me gaaaas...... It's not my friend. But SJ, you are younger than me ( says LDT with a heavy heart )... I did not have any of these symptoms when I was your age.....but then again, when I was your age I was drinking, so I could have had them and not known it.

My ducks were delicious tonight . It's been a great day of W30. Time to go figure out tomorrow's menu.

And to steal a phrase from a former heater.....Chow, folks.

Wehav... how do you like the coconut milk in your coffee? That's going to be a really tough one for me, to give up half & half and milk in my coffee. I'm guessing that's going to be the last to go. Lol. I actually would give up ice-cream before I'd go without milk in the coffee.

LDT... duck sounds delish. I've had duck a few times.

Dinner tonight was OMFG amazing My husband cooked a slab of beef ribs on the grill, along with a huge sweet potato. We put coconut oil in the sweet potato. I cooked some julienned slices of zucchini in coconut oil, garlic, sea salt and herbs de provence. Wow! So delicious. I'm doing that again. And the salad was great too... used a mandoline to slice the radishes and cucumbers, tossed them in olive oil & apple cider vinegar, dash of sea salt.

Not having ice-cream tonight. Going to eat grapes if I want a snack before bed.

SJ.... Now THAT'S the perfect dinner.

I couldn't imagine my coffee without half N half. It was hard the first W30, and I think my posts reflected that cream in my coffee was the very first thing I was going to do off W30..... This time around drinking it black is really not so bad. I tried to make a latte with almond milk one time, but it just didn't work for me. Some people love it, though.

1Day - This is not a Paleo Thread. LDT summed it up well. Sounds like you are making some positive changes.

Your dinner sounds great Jennie.

Wehav - Ha ha! You have a great memory. I haven't wrote "no snacks, no cheats" since I did that challenge months ago. Geez I'd like to be able to write that more. You made me smile.

Congrats on three days LDT!

Hope you're ok MB. You sound down.

Today I had some Paleo chicken salad and fruit. Then some roast with veggies. Later a Paleo pancake, which I made a huge batch of.

It was finger licking and plate licking good, LDT, because that is exactly what we did!! He licked his plate, and I was licking meat fat and coconut oil off my hands

But what's odd is that we bloated pretty badly and had some stomach discomfort for maybe 10-15 minutes, then it went away. Not sure what was going on.

Think it might have been the BarBQue sauce you used SJ? Or did you use any? BBQ sauces are loaded with sugar.

Nope, no BBQ sauce tonight. Didn't even need it. So tasty. So much better on the grill instead of in the oven.

Hmm... bottled ranch dressing, 4th ingredient sugar.

Ghostly... what pancake recipes do you use? I saw a few on Pinterest today. Some with bananas, nut butter, and others with coconut flour. What's your fave?

ghostly! Hugs!

Soberjen, I hated the coconut milk the first couple days, but now I can hardly tell. Maybe my senses have dulled. I only use milk occasionally anymore. But the two things I missed the most while on whole30: ice cream/froyo and restaurant Indian food. Those are still my guilty pleasures.

I don't bother with rice anymore. I make cauliflower rice. I tell j if she wants regular rice we can get those preformed packs you can nuke, but she isn't bothered either.

It got pretty late so I scrapped the orange chicken idea in favor of Thai yellow chicken curry on cauliflower rice. Compliant and tasty . And a lot less fat.

Tomorrow I'm taking my newbie staff on the longest hike in the park, aka the adhd trail (that's my cure for most behavioral issues with kids: hike their legs off. Strange how well it works). Okay before someone slaps me I do in fact employ other professional methods too. But hiking works!
So I'm gonna have fritata and a green smoothie for breakfast. Then of course, the usual salad.

Hey ldt, do you have trader joes where you live? Today i saw they carry freeze dried banana chips. No oil, no preservatives, nada. I would have bought some and given them a try, but well, they are bananas. Blech!!

I'm not going to slap you, we..... I teach kids everyday and I've often said that more parents need to stop over medicating their kids and just take them fishing.

Closest Trader Joe's is 2 hours away. But I already have some of the banana chips of which thou speakest, wehav.... And they pretty Much BLOW!

Jennie - My pancake recipe is kinds my own recipe that I've tweaked over the years.

I make my own almond flour. I use four eggs per cup of almond flour. One banana (mixed up well) per cup of almond flour. Mix that all up. Put in a bit of cinnamon and sea salt (sometimes vanilla). Then I pour them and cook them in coconut oil. As they're cooking I put a few blueberries (sometimes rasberries too) in them.

The four eggs per cup of almond flour was the key. Not enough eggs and they fall apart.

Ghostly.... I found that if I use arrowroot with my almond flour I don't have to use as many eggs.

I knew sugar was bad for many reasons, but never realized that it caused bloating! Hmmm...very interesting! Thanks for the info!

Hi, Heaters)

I am on Day 4 of Whole30 today. And I have a question.

I finally got my antidepressants. I hope so much they will work. But considering they contain hell lot of "not whole 30" stuff, and I have to take them at least for 3 months, does it mean I have to forget about Whole 30 for this time?

Just want to hear your opinion.

See you all later)
