New Goodie~Forager Cashewgurt


Day 2 of my Whole 30 and it's going well. Here's I did a little video of a haul from Trader Joe's and Whole Foods with some Paleo/Whole 30 staples. Turn up the sound to hear my nasally voice.



My sister turned me on to Forager Cashewgurt, and I was able to find it at Whole Foods. Non-dairy yogurt can be tough to find, especially one with clean ingredients. The coconut stuff from So Delicious is pretty tasty but it's loaded with sugar and I was unable to find one without sugar. 

The cashewgurt fit the bill. Silly name, delicious taste. It's very tangy and you can really taste that mellow, sweet natural flavor of the cashew nut. It's creamy but it's not as thick as Greek style. But it definitely fit the bill because I like the convenience of yogurt and fruit as a snack or light breakfast, especially for work days. I also like that it's made without carrageenan, which is a no-no on Whole 30. Try it and let me know what you think!

I also found Forager Cashew milk at Sprouts Market yesterday, but I haven't opened it yet. I will let you know how it is when I try it.

I bought a beautiful T-bone steak to make tonight, I'll have mine with asparagus, and maybe a small sweet potato depending on my hunger level. One thing about Whole 30, you think you'll be hungry all the time, but you won't. Grains and sweeteners stimulate my appetite, so much so, that it's always a pleasant surprise to not be snacky between meals on this way of eating.

  1. I've been trying a lot of grocery delivery lately and therefore I often get substitutions. Recently they subbed a package of ice cream bars with a cashew milk ice cream bars from SoDalicious. Man were they good, and much creamer than almond milk bars, etc. Of course they are loaded with sugar and covered in chocolate, but it made me realize that exploring the cashew scene might be a very good thing. They just make a creamier end product I bet. Good for you doing the Whole30 again. I've thought about it but never taken a committed leap. T-bone and asparagus certainly hit the spot without feeling like you're on an eating plan of any sort. Nice!

    1. Karin! Thanks for reading. A Whole 30 definitely takes commitment. That's the hardest part about it, getting the mind to do it. The body will adjust and thrive, but the mind is the bitch. Though now that I'm a week in (today is day 7) I'm feeling unflappable, calm and stable. The sugar makes me so irritable. I'm sure Rob appreciates the calm me. ;)

  2. I need to reign it in... Thinking WW for accountability and Whole30 to break the SUGAR CRAVINGS... because they suck. Today is August 1st - no better day to start right?! And you're still alive...it gives me hope.

  3. I won't lie and say it's easy to start, but it DEFINITELY gets easier as you go. The cravings do go, as does that general feeling of "mouth hunger" as I call it. When you're not physically hungry but your mouth is wanting something to do. I'm still alive, today is day 9. Tomorrow and the next day are supposed to be "the worst days." Not sure why, but my energy level is kicking in and the mental clarity is sharpening up. I feel more motivated, generally less lazy, if that makes sense. I'm here for any support you need. Good luck!
