    Yes, breakfast is so hard! Start simple. Even a hard boiled egg with water or a handful of almonds. (Total amateur here!) Good job doing breakfast!

    Yes, I'm going to work on the template today. Iheartmybody - what a great thing that you get to start new in a new place. That sounds fantastic. Last year I did crossfit for a year and fell off the wagon due to grad school and In the good days of making that change, I would say "this is who I am now" and it really helped. I'm trying to get myself back in that head space.

    Hi all! Yes, we have 6 kids who eat all the non-compliant stuff. I am fine with how all of them eat, as feeding the masses is a challenge. (I finally found support with this forum for big families, though, so we'll see how this affects them!). BIG WIN FOR ME! My parents trigger bad eating for me (I have found over the years), and after the girls' big dance recital last night, my parents wanted to take all 8 of us out, so I called the restaurant ahead, stopped by my house and warmed up some of the awesome turkey I had prepped (see pic), a little ziplock of compliant avacado mayo (just in case), and the Brussels sprouts, and we (hubby and I) did salad bar with turkey and brussel sprouts. It was easy and filled me to happy. He used non-compliant balsamic vinaigrette from the salad bar, but I will mention that to him later. mayo worked great with salt and pepper. Yay! Good job everyone on preparing. That's the trick!!!

    I haven't heard of the Real Plans app. I'll look into that! Here's a funny picture I sent a friend after my prep yesterday: Then I wrote, "but I just wanna eat it all right now!" Motivation from feeling gross is sooo helpful. You'll do great!
  7. So grateful to see this thread! 6 kids. 5-17. A head of cauliflower baked is an appetizer that they scarf down. A 10 pound bag of carrots is annoying to peel, but when baked they eat them super fast (and then I have to peel another 10 pounds). Chicken by the 10s of pounds, shredded, and then used for everything for a bit. Then a turkey, then a pork roast, etc. WOW. Avacodos by the dozen. Frozen bags of veggies in their brown rice. Venison from Grandpa. It's just never ending. I just never understood the complexities of cooking HEALHTY for this many people (and I work!). A little overwhelmed... We have a pressure cooker (Instant Pot), and I'm trying to use that more. Beans and rice are must, for the kids (not for hubby and I).

    And lots of other foods. All compliant, but not at a "meal" just whenever I wanted them. Food is still not "fuel" to me.

    Finishing Day 2! I want support too. I prepped a ton today and then ate the prepped food. The baked cauliflower was amazing, but I was supposed to be cooking it for later. Geez.
  10. HiD

    My first Whole 30 - looking for friends!

    So how bad is it to just eat Whole30 compliant *all* day? Obviously that won't work. I'm trying to get myself to sit down, calm down, and slowly eat three meals a day.

    I started June 1, too. Brand new to the concept. Emotional.
