POST NOT SHOWING UP? Ad-Block Pro blocks the display of images in this post because of a WordPress plugin. Disable ABP for the page, then refresh and you will be able to see all the goodies. Once my book is done, I’ll be re-writing this post, but in the meantime, that’s the quick fix

I have maybe a “newbie” question. I’m doing my first whole 30 challenge and am enjoying it quite a bit. A lot of the recipes I’m seeing on your site and other paleo/whole 30 sites have bacon fat used for the fat, I was under the assumption that bacon was sorta on the off list as it is nearly impossible to find without sugar added or if you can source it, you would have to sell a kidney. Is bacon fat somehow made okay after cooking regular commercial bacon? I always have a jar of it in my fridge but have put it on the don’t go there shelf for the duration of the 30. Or is the wonderfulness of bacon fat just okay for you – no judge

That’s a good question! And maybe it’s something that I should clarify throughout my site better, as I can see how it could be confusing.
When we talk about bacon fat, we’re talking about the rendered fat from bacon after cooking, yes. But commercial bacon is full of preservatives, sugars and similar things that we want to avoid on the Whole 30, especially as commercially raised pigs are not fed good diets and any toxins or medications are usually stored IN the fat (just like in humans). So when we talk about using bacon fat, it would be from the kind of bacon that is produced by pastured animals who are not fed unnatural grain based diets.
You are right that finding good quality bacon is seriously a hassle. And it’s not really an optimum food choice, anyway, given the fat : meat ration. So if you don’t have it, then I would say just substitute any other Whole 30 approved fats for cooking. I’m lucky enough to have a butcher who provides me with sugar free bacon.. and I have a bacon fat hoarding problem, ha! Feel free to throw me any other questions you might have and good luck on your Whole 30!

We found sugar free bacon at Walmart! It’s called Gwaltney. We are also able to buy it at the commissary at Ft. Rucker, AL. I know you can buy it online also, but it’s more expensive. I spoke to a chef who said you can get pork belly from a butcher, which is mainly what bacon is made from. You’ll have to smoke and/or season it yourself.

Oops, looks like an egg recipe slipped into the egg free section by accident… SEP’s zucchini fritters have one in the recipe. Looked so promising too

Oops, I had a dunce moment, sorry about that! I wonder if using a little arrowroot powder might work as a starchy binder instead – I’ll have to test that out sometime.

I was literally just searching pinterest for some new whole food breakfast ideas. I love eggs, but need to spice it up a bit. Thanks so much, these are fantastic ideas!

Every time I click on a link to get to this post, I only get to the comments. Any thoughts on why? I’d love to see the actual post as we’re planning on starting whole 30 on Monday! I’ve pinned your lunches and dinners. Thanks!

That’s very odd! What is the URL you are using? Try this one: http://meatified.com/30-days-whole-30-breakfasts/
February 2, 2014 at 14:38
I also am unable to see the recipes. When I click your above link it tells me the page no longer exists.

WordPress doubled up the link for some reason – it is fixed now
February 2, 2014 at 17:51
I’m having the same problem…
Should be fixed now!

Disable your ad blocker; that’s what is preventing the plugin from displaying the post.

I cannot see any of your blog entries, tried the lunch one first and then this, I just see the comment page:(
February 28, 2014 at 13:38
I think that’s because there are lots of images in the post – they take some time to load up on slower connections. Can you see any other posts from the homepage, or is the problem just with these recipe round up posts?
February 28, 2014 at 14:30
I eventually was able to see the posts but when I first came to your blog I could see everything on the homepage but when I clicked on individual posts nothing but the comments came up. I got it to work now, thank you
February 28, 2014 at 14:53
That is strange! Glad it’s working for you now
June 21, 2014 at 04:49
I’m having the same problem – can only see comments. I’m on an ipad – is that the problem? I wanted to read about your breakfast ideas!
June 23, 2014 at 09:11
It’s a bug in the plugin I used, unfortunately. I’ve found that clearing my browser cache fixes it – sorry for the inconvenience!
June 23, 2014 at 09:57
Hi! Im new to this whole idea of the “whole 30″, no pun intended, and I was just curious as to way grains are not permitted. I have become so accustomed to my morning oatmeal and will have a tough time passing it up! Thanks in advance for your reply
June 24, 2014 at 14:25
I’ll let the Whole30 team explain it themselves – check out their post on grains here

Hi, I’m interested in this post but can only see the comments.

Sorry about that – the gallery plugin that displays the photos seems to get picked up by some ad blockers. You can disable your ad blocker on this page OR try clearing your browser cache and reloading the page to get it to load
