    I can't keep my picky kids full!

    Thanks so much for all the ideas!
  2. We are on day 13 here, and my biggest frustration so far is listening to my children complain all day long about being hungry. They are picky to boot, so finding things that they are willing to eat has been tricky. It feels like they are eating way too much almond butter because they put it on everything, celery, carrots, apples, bananas. They actually ate their tuna salad for lunch today which was an improvement, but I didn't give them very much cause I didn't know how well they were going to do. The 4 and 5 year finished theirs, but when I asked if they wanted more, the answer was no, but I'm still hungry. I was going to buy them a box of almond crackers today, but then discovered that all the boxes also had rice in them! Ah! What else can I do?

    Essential Oils in Water?

    It is never safe to ingest essential oils unless directed by a certified aromatherapist.

    Frontier Organic Herby blend?

    I'm nearly out of off my Frontier Organic Herby blend, and need to know if I can get some more for our Whole 30 in January. The ingredients in questions are organic guar gum, and organic rice concentrate.
  5. First off, we definitely fall into the category of "can't afford to lose any weight" which I just read in the book means we need to snack somewhat. Also, my husband has fibromylagia, and if his blood sugar gets too low he can't function, (something I'm hoping Whole30 will improve). He needs things that are as easy as possible to put together for himself and our children. I'm at work most of the day, but will try to get as much prepped as I can. So, I'm looking for kid friendly snack ideas.

    Whole family starting Jan 1st

    Hi all, we are all going to start our 1st Whole 30 on January 1st. I know it's kind of far out, but I didn't think it would be fair for my children if we were doing this right through the Christmas season. My husband was diagnosed with fybromyalgia and chronic depression a few months ago, and is finally ready to try something radical to feel better. We have 3 daughters. The oldest, age 5, has been going through some behavior issues, and had a rash that wouldn't heal until she was gluten and dairy free for 3 months this summer. The 4 year old is suddenly breaking out in hives every week. I have asthma and allergies that are mostly under control at the moment, but my nose is continually blocked, so I don't have a good sense of smell anymore. And the 2 and a half year old is just along for the ride. I'm sure we will need lot's of support to help hubs through as he is stay-at-home-daddy right now, and doesn't have much energy for food prep. And I think I may have one of the hardest jobs possible for going through this: I work at a bakery and cafe. We are so ready to feel better and have our lives back!
