thanks for those links! info overload! like a rabbit hole that keeps getting deeper!
so after 27 days you felt great what made you stop? surely its fairly easy to omit sunflower oil?
just cook with coconut oil and EVOO ?
Yes that is my main concern is losing weight, If anything I want to bulk up for the gym! so thinking, eating loads of cashews and brazil nuts. They are very high in calories
also what is the deal with fruit juices? can you eat any fruit? i make fruit smoothies and wondered if those are ok?
also i found a great link here > that has 18 simple paleo recipes
also has a paleo shopping list > http://www.mensfitne...t-shopping-list
I was traveling while doing the Whole30 and wanted some nuts, but they had added sunflower seed oil.
I cooked with coconut and olive oil all the time! I LOVE tilapia with coconut oil. It's so incredibly good. Also, if you cut up a sweet potato in "chip" slices and then sautee them in coconut oil with a little bit of curry powder...it's literally the best thing I've ever eaten. Just make sure you don't use high heat with coconut oil because it will make the room smoky.
I didn't stop after 27 days... I did the whole entire 30 days. The reason I didn't keep going with Paleo eating is mostly because I wanted to go out with friends and eat non-paleo foods and drinks.
However, I would totally be willing to do it again with a cheat meal or two thrown in.
I think cashews are the way to go if you want to get some more calories! That and lots of meat and eggs. You can make your own fruit juices; you just don't want the added sugar of the pre-made fruit juices in the store.
This is a really nice shopping list that I used when I did the Whole30:http://whole9life.co...opping-List.pdf
oh i see! yeah easier to follow any diet when not on holiday or with friends..
not tried tilapia? what is that! tonight i had sweet potato with drizzled EVOO and salt and pepper, then dashed on some cinnamon powder and it was awesome! ive had it with curry pow as well and i agree its so lush! also a rump steak, lettuce, cucumber, baby tomatoes, avocado. yum!
thanks for the tip with the coconut oil cooking temp.
i'm struggling with no bread or rice(i love chicken wraps) but tbh, i'll just replace with sweet potato lol!
that link with the menu is amazing! thanks so much, im going to print it off and stick it in my kitchen
