  1. I've posted a few times about how bummed I am about Chipotle... it was just such a quick staple for emergency times! I thought perhaps a thread about where to go and what to eat when fast food is necessary would be helpful... Currently the only thing I'm confident in (and it's a shaky confidence) is going to Tokyo Joes and getting a bowl with lettuce instead of noodles or rice, veggies, and meat. Then I get one of the curry sauces--the ingredients seem okay. Where do you eat out if you have to?
  2. spaghetti squash, acorn squash, delicata squash, pumpkin, butternut squash, other winter squashes...

    This thread makes me laugh and feel sad simultaneously!

    That's hilarious! I picture them announcing over the loudspeaker "this person actually has real food with them!" and a big, Far-Side style red arrow suddenly pointing at your head as everyone turns to look at you! Hooray for planning ahead!

    Couple of items: pickles, V8

    We buy Bubbie's at Sunflower Market. They are really good. Tom, do you have an easy pickle recipe? We have cucumbers in the garden...

    Where To Go? (and what to eat)

    A Trader Joe's coming to the next town over from us--hooray! Our family of five needs a place to go after late volleyball games, climbing comps, school plays... sometimes we can cover it with the Crockpot and sometimes it just makes for an awfully late night for the kids. I'm still grieving over the loss of Chipotle I really thought they were a good option. Sorry for the whining... Subway is a possibility (lol, I can't believe I'm saying that either!) or now I'm wondering about the salad bar at the regular grocery store.

    I do Chipotle all the time... and I'm really disappointed to hear about the soybean oil! Arg!
  9. Jenelson, I didn't have sinus issues to the extent that you describe, but the Whole30 has helped my sinuses tremendously! I used to get sinus infections 4-6x per year, each lasting about ten days. I can also simply breath better and deeper; I think I had a lot of inflammation in my lungs that has improved. Do you currently eat dairy and grains? If you do, I suspect cutting them out will help your sinuses hugely!
