  1. Start date Tuesday September 5th

    Day 10 (today) and Day 11 (tomorrow) are usually the hardest days on the Whole30. I'm definitely feeling a little weary today. Hang in there y'all. We got this

    Is anyone else dreaming about food? I dreamt about chocolate caramel cookies last night. I didn't eat any in the dream, but they seemed like they'd be really good!!!!!

    I really experienced the KILL ALL THE THINGS phase! I didn't remember that from my previous Whole30, but it was so long ago -- who knows?! This weekend I slept A LOT! Yesterday (day 6), my body was feeling happier, I'm glad to have made it through the grouchy phase. Here's the calendar, for all those that haven't seen it, I enjoy looking at it -- Whole30 Timeline / Calendar

    @GRiv @mvonhoff @BadWolf47 @LauraW13 @mtex1985 <-- I think you're all 1st timers. I hope your first Whole30 is going well so far. Please post if you're having any challenges you want to talk about! Or when you have successes! And, all you 2nd, 3+ timers, how's it going for YOU?

    @BadWolf47 Congrats on your decision to do a Whole 30 and making it to the end of Day 2! Several other folks started yesterday too - see the thread below. [I'm on day 2, of whole30 #2.] Good for you for giving up caffeine too! I am cutting down on my caffeine this go round, but not ready to give it up completely. Tea only, no coffee for me.

    RECIPES! @frogtox I'm glad you asked about recipes, I was just thinking I'd love to hear what other people's are. Here's one of my favorite easy ones for adding a veggie I love to a meal. Plus it reheats well for days to come. Easy / Yummy Collard Greens Ingredients: 1/2 onion chopped 5 pieces bacon chopped (whole30 approved or if you don't have that you could do some pork or dark meat turkey) 2 cups bone broth (home made preferably or some other whole30 approved) 1 bag frozen chopped collard greens (another bag is fine too) Spices (salt, pepper, some kind of cayenne or other spice if you like) Apple Juice (optional if you want a dash of sweet to mellow it out, of course 100% juice only) Directions: Saute onions and bacon in heavy pan Add bone broth, spices and collards Simmer for 45 mins or so - OR put it all in a crock pot.

    I'm starting today too! And I'm glad all of you are here doing the same. And many veterans... So, I did one Whole30 before (about 2 years ago) and it was transformational. It definitely improved my eating and lifestyle overall, but I've slowly slid to less awesome eating and living. I started a Whole about 6 months ago wanting to remedy this, but I had a hard time sticking to it, and only made it about two weeks—mostly because of poor planning. Looking back, I wasn't fully prepared to do the second one and should have done it more intentionally and consciously. This time in doing this Whole30, I am more prepared. I think and hope the biggest differences will be (a) I wrote some things down about my reasons, my goals and my outcomes (b) I'm committing to it here with all of you (c) I signed up for the email of 30 days from Whole30 Daily (d) I have a public calendar in my house to track progress. (Even though, I'm the only one in the house doing it, my husband is supportive and is doing his own self-improvement regimen.) I'm excited. Let's do this! ----- @MMF - I'm in Denver. Where are you?
