  1. I missed yesterday, but I'm still on track! It's Day 8! Yesterday I did weights and this morning some intervals of running/walking. Have a nice weekend everyone!

  2. Feeling listless on a Friday night. I made plans to enjoy a breezy patio dinner at a restaurant with my fella tonight, but in the end we canceled the reservations out of COVID concerns. Infection rates in our area seem to be really high, and I am not sure I can handle two hours in public without a mask on, even if it's outdoors. "Your 'Surge Capacity' is Depleted — It's Why You Feel Awful" This essay has been making the rounds in my social media circles, including a repost from W30's Melissa Urban. It resonates with me. I continue to find help in hearing (reading) other people's refl

    Hello! I’m on day 6 of my 5th or 6th Whole30 and I’m doing it differently this time. One of the things that entails is being active in the forum, so hello! I guess on this first post I’m just going to dive right into the psychology, since meal prepping and staying on plan aren’t the struggle anymore. I know I can do that part. I know my blog title might earn me a few side eyes, but 1. It’s a reference to the band Fatboy Slim and a nod to college nostalgia and 2. I’ve always identified as a fat girl, even before I actually was one. I’m 5’9” and I’ve been 5’9” since the 6th grade

  4. I started Whole30 yesterday for myself along with my two toddlers, ages 4 and 2. So far, so good! My four year old told me yesterday he doesn't like the idea of big changes with our food but he's been hanging in there really well. My two year old hasn't seemed to notice yet. They are both pretty picky eaters but thankfully they both love eggs! And I'm SO thankful for compliant hotdogs (thank you Applegate!!). It's harder to balance their plates as they are picky but I'm hopeful they will grow more open to different foods over the next 30 days. I feel bad for them though. I can tel

    It’s day 31! I’m down 9.2 pounds, which is cool. I definitely feel less puffy. My sugar cravings are super manageable, which is a big deal. I don’t think I ever quite hit tiger blood. I think I’m still just not eating enough or sleeping enough. Today is cheese day. There are a lot of things I’m just not going to bother reintroducing because I don’t miss them. Like beans, and milk, and surprisingly bread. I mean sure I miss cake and cookies and brownies, but I really haven’t missed pasta or toast or sandwich wraps. So I’m going with the theory that if I don’t miss it, why reintroduce it?

  6. Mucky horrible Saturday here! I've done very little, meal 1 was leftover chicken ribs and slaw. I've been working on my new crossstitch today. It's hugely ambitious, beyond anything I've made before, eek! Dinner will be roasted turkey drums with root vegetable mash, brussel sprouts and broccoli, and turkey gravy made from pan drippings and potato starch.

    Craving Creamy Texture

    I love blended soups for their creamy texture. And of course there's homemade mayo and ranch dressing (look up dump ranch dressing) for compliments to meals. I've also made sauces that had coconut milk in them, plus homemade unsweetened coconut milk yogurt.

    Craving Creamy Texture

    I'm also currently shoveling cucumbers with heaping piles of tzatziki in my mouth right now. It is creamy and delicious. Here's the recipe (note that the other foods are not Whole30 compliant, but the tzatziki is compliant): https://www.penguin.com.au/recipes/2096-durga-warrior-goddess-bowl-with-herbal-cashew-tzatziki.

    Craving Creamy Texture

    I love me some creamy soups! I make double batches of these two soups and keep individual-serving-size jars frozen in the freezer. I love eating them for breakfast because it's a great way for me to eat veggies early in the morning but they would hopefully satisfy your creamy-texture-cravings quite well!

  10. Very late meal 1 but damn, it was good, and fast and simple! Just frozen cauli, brocc, beans and carrots, heated up in a frypan, threw in some ghee and a couple of slices of shredded prosciutto, cracked 2 eggs over it then when it was cooked, topped with with Salsa God Hot & Spice Fire Roasted Salsa. YUM.

  11. I hope things got better but you're right that it's normal to have some days like that in the first half especially right where you are. I'm glad you aren't letting it stop you.

    Whole30 with toddlers.

    You can make lemonade without sweeteners. I add a teaspoon of baking soda per lemon (it's alcaline and modifies the overall acidity) and dilute it in water. It's also cute to do with kids because it's a very bubbly chemical reaction

  13. Another thing that helps me is that I try to think of the things I make him and his meals as "exposures" whether he eats the food or not. He's currently in a phase where he is less than enthused about most of the veggies I give him, and usually doesn't eat them if they aren't peas, olives, or sweet potatoes. But I still continue to put whatever other veggies I have made on his place and in his lunch. Even if he doesn't touch it, I think of it like, it's still teaching him that this food is a food we eat in our family, whether he chooses to eat it or not. I make an effort to never make a bi

  14. I have no tips or advice as I do not own any children but it stands out to me that if your 2 and 4 year old are having carb flu/detox type symptoms, this is probably the best thing you can do for them!
