Please let me know how the oats go. All the evidence is leaning towards a gluten sensitivity for me so far so I have a little grain phobia right now :)

Morning ladies!!!

Marki I haven't tried oats yet. Maybe I will tomorrow morning for breakfast.

Lara bars sound interesting. Would be good for me to make and take on vacation. I'm going to have to check it out. Thank you!

Hope everyone is having a fabulous day!!!

Day 4 going good.

Try using dried fruit and nuts to make your bars. You can use any combo. Soak the fruit to get it to blend a little easier and then add your nuts. The possibilities are endless as far as combinations go:)

I used to hate buying avocados but I can honestly say that in the last 5 years every avocado I have purchased from Whole Foods has been beautiful inside! They cost a little bit more, but definitely worth it. Also, I use to feel like I had to use them immediately or they might go bad, but now I buy them and store ripe avocados in the fridge, and they last for weeks! Lately, I've also had good luck with the Costco avocados. I would never buy them, because they would go bad before I could use them all, but since I've been storing them in the fridge, I've only had one go bad. emoticon

I cut open a perfectly ripe avocado today!!! I find avocados tough to deal with. They are either hard or rotten. I saw a post by Stupid Easy Paleo last week about avocados and people in the comments said to store them in a brown paper bag in the fridge. I did that this week and it worked like a charm, so I wanted to share.

Happy Tuesday everyone!

Great job getting right back on plan!

I'll have to check out Lara Bars. I need to find some healthy convenience foods. I've really missed the ease of being able to have a bar or protein shake, pre or post workout or even for a breakfast or lunch on the go. But even when my Whole90 is over, I don't want to go back to food with chemicals. Maybe I'll look for recipes to make my own.

T. Have you tried gluten free grains yet? I'm curious about what your body thinks of oats. Since, I think the best recipe I've seen for a bar, calls for oats. emoticon

Whole90 day 77. emoticon

Typically I have a Lara bar (dates, dried fruit, almonds) just got out of the house without one:)

Hope everyone is having a great week so far!!

Awww. I'm so sorry you had to start over, but good for you for being honest with yourself about it. About 1/2 way through my whole30, I started carrying Almonds in my bag so I would always have something Whole30 approved to eat.

:) Thanks for the support! Yes, I did learn a valuable lesson and will probably carry a snack with me all the time just in case. If I am truly hungry I will eat it, if not then it goes back in the pantry. That is not a problem for me since I am pretty good about listening to my hunger cues.

Day 2
No grains
No dairy
No artificial sweeteners

But it sounds like lesson learned, and you will be even stronger now. emoticon

Today is finally day 75. I realized I had screwed up my counting. But I don't want to cheat myself out of a single day. I feel stronger with each new day.

Moment of weakness. I came home starving yesterday! Grabbed a bar without thinking about it and later read the ingredients...whey protein. Oh well looks like I will be starting over:)
Lesson learned:
Always have a snack. I truly thought I would be ok til we got home. So I am planning to double up on the vegan bars this week at the store that way I have one for each day of the week just in case:) Honestly I did not feel terrible after eating it. I thought I would be sick.

So today is Day 1: everything is tracked and I am ready to hit it again! Looking forward to that 2 week streak again!

emoticon emoticon emoticon You're doing so well! I'm a little jealous of your natural sweetners. But I know I'm not that strong yet.

I think today is day 74. Funny I never thought I'd lose track of these days. I've almost made it to my Whole90. I haven't noticed any changes in my body in these last 14 days but then I didn't notice anything until day 59 of my previous 30 days.

My husband has officially lost 20 pounds now. I'm a little jealous of that too. But I'm staying focused on me and I'm so happy to have survived the 4th of July without eating cherry pie.

Happy Friday! Hope everyone has a great weekend

Happy Wednesday!

Sorry I haven't been around, but didn't have computer access. My husband has been using it for work, and sparking from my phone just takes too long.

Great job everyone!

Today is day 71 of my Whole90. I went to the grocery store this morning and it smelled of baking bread and cookies and the ice cream was on sale, but I wasn't even tempted. emoticon emoticon

Day 12 all is good:)

I did notice my calories were higher the past two days, trying to reel things back in for the rest of the week:)
I know it is all about balance, but I also know too many high calorie days and the scale gets wonky on me.
Hope everyone has a great day!

Day 6 all in check:) Stomach much flatter without dairy or wheat. No change on the scale though. It's ok...I'll take a flatter stomach!

So cool that you make your own ghee. As much as I love the convenience of store bought products, I love making the same things at home:)

I buy ghee at my regular store in the organic section. I can only find coconut aminos at whole foods... And they run out a lot. I LOVE the coconut aminos and the ghee. They will be always used in my kitchen from now on.

I can find all the products you mentioned CSINICOLE18 at my local health food store. Whole Foods or Trader Joe's would likely have them too or maybe Harris Teeter if you have one of those near ya:)

Oh yes I hear ya with being more sensitive to flavorings. My sister's wedding food was overly seasoned and I only ate it because I was really, really hungry. I would never cook anything like that at home.

Great job forgoing the cookies. Believe it gets easier. I would eat every sweet treat in sight, now I make cupcakes for friends and am perfectly happy to send them away:)

Day 3 no dairy or wheat...all tracked:)
Feeling great! Workout was amazing today too:)

Good morning! Congratulations on day 1 & 2!

The dinner party was fun. But it's funny how sensitive I've become to flavors. I took one bite of a veggie salad and could taste peanuts!!! I never thought there would be peanuts in a fresh veggie salad. Luckily I could spit it out without anyone noticing.

Day 62. I'm ready.

Have a great day everyone.
