Are there certain types of Whey protein isolate that is not a good idea to get? I just wondered because I found a place to get some, but I am guessing it wouldn't be the right kind. I can't easily order any online.
And I have the same problem about not easily ordering Glucomannan powder online. Is there anything that can safely be used on the plan as a substitute?
For the whey protein, the Swanson one recommended in the book has only 1 g of carbs per scoop, while most others have much more. Look for Jay Robb's which is supposed to be good too, and can be found in many stores (Kroger often carries it).
No suggestion on the glucomannan, as I've never seen it in a store. One thing to consider is that it comes in 1 lb bags, which should last quite a while and would not have to be ordered constantly, or could be shared with someone else.
steffanie3: carmela there are many restaurant options if you are doing that while vacationing, sometimes bringing your own food is best and sometimes people you are visiting eat in such a way that you can eat easily out of what is offered, it just really depends

delightx8: Is there any reason why I shouldn't add a full scoop of whey protein to the Singing Canary if I want to use it as a snack or meal replacement? So happy to find something for adrenal fatigue!

steffanie3: I put a full scoop in a quart and drink it for a meal or snack delightx8

rahel: Hello there,I have just started the plan and before that I did low carb-high protein. That diet allowed Oatbran, as the "only" fiber loaded carb. So now I still have a lot of that at home - is oat bran allowed to use? 100gs: Carbs:47g, Fiber:18g,Protein:14

steffanie3: You can use oatbran in an E setting Don't confuse it with oat fiber in some of the recipes on here though, common confusion.

carmela: Can you have regular sourdough bread on TRM plan

carmela: Sorry THM plan

steffanie3: For breads you want to stick with the E guidelines of whole grain sourdoughed or sprouted or whole grain rye.

asensenig: Does this include Ezekiel Bread? I have a THM recipe that calls for 7 cups wheat kernels. It does not mention that it needs to be sprouted or rye.

steffanie3: Ezekiel is sprouted. You could post your recipe up in a post so we could see it

asensenig: Following is the recipe I used for Ezekiel Bread. 7 cups Wheat Kernels; 1 cup Ezekiel Mix; 1000 mg Vitamin C Tablet; 5 cups warm water; 1/2 cup Honey; 1/2 cup butter, slightly softened); 2 T salt; 3 T Saf Yeast; 1/2 cup Vital Wheat Gluten. Ezekiel mix next

asensenig: Ezekiel Mix: 12 cups Barley; 12 cups Rye or Spelt; 4 cups dry lentils; 4 cups millet; 4 cups dry pinto beans; 3 cups dry soy beans. Another question. Can rye berries be used without sprouting?

steffanie3: I was thinking you meant the store bought Ezekiel which is sprouted. This recipe would not be on plan with the honey.

asensenig: ok. if you substituted another sweetner for the honey, would it be ok?
