    Your doctor is misinformed.

    I don't know if I could make it a full 30 days, but it would be fun for maybe a week to actually try to include the whole list with every meal, since the questions does come up so often

    I accidentally just dumped everything in at once (cold egg, cold lemon juice too), stuck my stick blender in. Surprisingly it came out perfect and in just a few seconds! My super silly fail was actually a great success! I've repeated my mistake 3 times now, it continues to work
    I use these ingredients:
    1 whole egg 1/2 tsp sea salt 1/2 tsp mustard powder 1 1/4 c extra light tasting olive oil juice of half a lemon Made it in a wide mouth mason jar.

    I started to get performance anxiety when I read this! But I double-checked my pic from a couple years ago and was relieved that I had at least fit 10 on there.  I do have short fingers though but I supposed I could stack more to make up for it.

    Pick your fats from that list! Not all at once. 
    1-2 thumbs or equivalent servings (a half to whole avocado, heaping handful of olives, etc) at every meal.

    No, it's a sweetener

    It's only ok to use clarified butter or ghee, not standard butter.  And that's because the milk proteins and sugars have been filtered out and these are what are most potentially problematic for people

    Eh, if my house wasn't like 80 degrees that night I probably wouldn't sweat it.  Mayo is like 95% oil anyway and only a bit of egg, so there's not a whole lot riding on refrigeration.  I mean, ya, bacteria breeding ground etc etc but I tend to play pretty loose with stuff like that ... I figure it just strengthens my gut microbiome

    That's the premise of the movie That Sugar Film -- http://thatsugarfilm.com/ -- he makes a point to eat stuff that is promoted as healthy like yogurt, smoothies, etc.

    This weekend I got back (my 2nd) home in San Diego, where I'll be 'til the end of June, so that right there is pretty much a perfect prescription for a stress-free month!

    I'll have to try some meditation by the beach!

    I think what I am going to do for my children is offer Whole 30 foods at dinner time and not necessarily push the Whole 30 lifestyle on them all the time. I would also have a heart-to-heart with hubby about your concerns. I like the ideas of letting them take turns choosing a recipe or meal, or maybe take one of their favorite meals and tweak it to be Whole 30 compliant?

    Well dang, we all just became such good experts at sleep last month that we slept right through the start of April!

    But this month we've got an important factor to focus on: stress.
    (I was tempted to use capital letters and explanation points, but I didn't, because, you know, I didn't want to stress anyone out )
    Stress management might even be the most important skill we can develop, because it affects every other area of our life.  When we don't manage stress properly, our nutrition efforts can fall flat, our sleep is compromised, relationships suffer, and life just isn't as much fun.
    Great article here: https://chriskresser.com/beyond-paleo-7/
    To reduce the impact of stress, we can address both the amount of stress we're exposed to, and the way we deal with unavoidable stress.
    Avoiding unnecessary stress means learning to say no, limiting arguing, turning off the news, etc.  Dealing with unavoidable stress can occur through reframing, time management, and cultivating acceptance and gratitude. (this is just a snippet from the article, so read the whole thing, and also we'll look at all these different strategies throughout this month.
    And here is why our focus on stress management fits well side-by-side with our focus on sleep:
