    Hi Rindaloo-
    I can get delivery from Whole Foods through Amazon Prime Now, however- most of their time slots have been completely full whenever I've checked. My husband lucked out once and was able to order a bunch of broccoli, tuna steaks, and some compliant whole30 turkey bacon. So that was a win! But I've mostly just trekked on the bus to Whole Foods. I've only had to go 3 times so far and I got enough stuff this Saturday to hopefully hold me for 2 weeks before I needs to go there again. As long as I make a trip to my local grocery store before then, I should be set for this and next week at least

    Revelate- how's your whole30 going? Are you on Day 20 now? Amazing! Sorry it looks me a while to respond! I didn't start on 4/12, but I DID start today!
    I ended up going to a different Whole Foods location than my previous trip a month ago on Saturday (braved mass transit and took a bus, stayed far away from the only 3 other people on it) and waited outside in a line in the rain for maybe about 10 minutes total. This Whole Foods had literally everything I needed from my list EXCEPT 1 item...which I can make from scratch, I just usually avoid doing that since it's time consuming- but I have all the time in the world now 
    So I prepped my breakfasts and lunches for the week yesterday and I'll make my dinners for the week tonight. Sooo thrilled I was able to find everything I needed and was able to start on time like I had planned. Now I just hope I'm consistently able to find everything I need every week for the next 6 weeks 
    I guess no one else decided to start today if a lot of people started last week, so I may be the only one posting in my own forum, hah!

    I’m cheating haha.  Started April 1st but apparently there’s a Whole Foods / Snapkitchen partnership and I have simply been doing the subscription meal service and picking W30 compliant meals off their menu.  That plus an occasional Chipotle lifestyle bowl for additional sodium and calories, both of which I apparently need right now, and the logistics at least have been smooth.
    They did recently reduce their menu selection and some items are running out (though it may just be first come first serve and I got there much later today than I usually do and the item had Avocado in the name /eyeroll) so I suspect we are finally starting to see some impact in the food supply at least for certain items.
    From the news though many consumers were being more cost conscious rather than health conscious right now: namely there was an uptick in cheaper food and discount grocers were seeing more business.  The counterpoint to that is Whole Foods is probably getting somewhat less business, though with the Amazon delivery services that might not be true.
    Actually that’s what I might do if I were in NYC and worried about public transit (rightfully from what I hear): Whole Foods vis a vis Amazon has a delivery service, probably somewhat more expensive for delivery but that might not only tell you what’s available it might be a good solution too.
    Also I think there’s a big push for #Whole30AtHome starting tomorrow according to the main web page, if you have time might try pushing up the date to what I assume will be a flock of others though sounds like you are fine for motivation being experienced ;).
