  1. @Jmb369 Welcome, we’re happy to have you join us! I’m curious about your comment that your biggest challenge will be to not feel hungry. Is that normal for you on Whole30? Do you eat fat with every meal? I’ve found that’s the biggest key for me to feel my best! Which is hard because we’re so indoctrinated that fat is bad! I also tend to eat A LOT of potatoes on Whole30. Sometimes for every meal... LOL. I’m pretty active though. @Laura of The Great White North I can definitely relate to your relationship with food. I didn’t really realize how many food rituals I had until I did a Whole30.

I like the recipes in the Whole30 books and I found a lot of good recipes on the Nom Nom Paleo site. The potsticker stir fry is one of my favorites. I think this time around I'm going to focus on prepping breakfasts ahead of time because that is my most challenging meal. I have 2 teenage boys to herd in the mornings so I rarely have time to sit and eat. I think I'm going to try doing bulk batches of things like chicken and cauliflower rice so I can kind of mix and match throughou

  5. I was thinking of starting more traditionally on January 1 (or 5th) but I'd like to connect with some people who have done it before, so I'd like to join you and begin on DEcember 27. I've done two complete Whole 30s and had several false starts over the past four years. I need a total reset -- just had a flare-up of my AI symptoms, plus my weight has been steadily creeping up over the past year. I did my first one in 2015. I do menu planning, and have for many years, but I always have easy meals for those days when I don't feel like following my planned menu. Our house has very few non
