    Okay, I don't want to flood the threat, but this literally just happened:
     
    Coworker: I went to CVS last night to get some biotin and B12 and I also found a non-sugar coated gummy vitamin!
     
    Me (thinking hmmmm): Oh yeah? That's cool; what brand?
     
    Coworker: CVS brand, mimicking the One A Day vitamin.
     
    I asked to see the bottle and the first two ingredients are glucose syrup & sucrose!

    Oh! I need to add my own thing. When I first heard about Whole30 I ranted to my cousin and one of the things I said was "But it's not healthy to cut out entire food groups! That's the whole POINT of the food pyramid!"
     
    That was the morning of the day that I was supposed to meet with my mom's friend about Whole30, and I was planning on going over there and politely telling her that it just wasn't for me. My cousin was so confused when I came home with a ton of vegetables and meat and fruit.

    My mum (because I'd explained my first whole30 as an elimination diet): "So, this gluten allergy you thought you had - it's all better now is it?"
    Me: *sigh*

    My boss the other day: "Be careful with that. High protein, low carb diets will wreck your kidneys."   SMH!  
    (A few weeks ago)A good friend of mine ranting about people who buy grass-fed and organic: "There's no point in buying organic or grass-fed. Anyone can say their product is organic or grass-fed. Did you SEE them grow that sh*t? Did you SEE what the farmer fed that cow?" ------then, today I find out she ordered online a 90 day supply of the latest MIRACLE "all natural" fat burning pills. Had to resist the urge to say, "Any supplement company can claim their product is all natural. Did you SEE what they put in it????"    She keeps asking me if I want to split the 90 day supply with her. DOUBLE SMH!!!!

    Conversation during dinner last night:
     
    Hubby: What's this red thing?
     
    Me: Tomatoes quartered, seasoned with salt, pepper, garlic powder, tossed with coconut oil and roasted in the oven.
     
    Hubby: Hmm. It's really good but you know I don't like tomatoes.
     
    Me: I know. Give it to me & I'll have it for breakfast.
     
    Hubby: Oh, I ate it all. But this pasta is really good. Have we had this before?
     
    Me: It's not pasta. I julienned zucchini and summer squash, seasoned it up and then sauteed it
     
    Hubby: I hate zucchini.
     
    Me: Ok, just give it to me and I'll have it for breakfast tomorrow.
     
    Hubby: Oh, I ate it all.
     
    Me: (Silently giving him a confused look)
     
    Hubby: Why are you looking at me like that?

    I finally have a contribution!
     
    At a birthday potluck celebration at work, where the only thing I was eating was the fresh fruit.
     
    Coworker #1 (to me): Why aren't you eating anything?
     
    Coworker #2: Because she is on the caveman diet.  
     
    Coworker #3: What's the caveman diet?
     
    Coworker #2: It's like the caveman. They only eat one big meal once a day.
     
     
    Uh, WHAT????  What's crazy is that I have NEVER used the words "caveman diet" to anyone at work!  I always say I am not eating processed foods!  If anyone asks more questions, then I explain Whole30 to them.

    "I don't think that you should completely eliminate any food groups. It's not healthy." -- Him, when I told him (while he was gone) that I was going to eliminate grains and dairy for a month.
     
    *insert me losing weight and looking fantastic*
     
    *insert me still keeping mostly grain-free, except when they're gluten free and on occasion, but successfully reintroducing everything else and maintaining a decent weight level despite eating more candy with him*

    I've had all the lymph nodes in my left arm removed and was getting mild lymphoedema. the hospital fitted me with a really tight sleeve to wear. My daughter goes "Oh mum, it's making your hand swell up, it looks a lot fatter". I swear my first thought was "Yeah - that's the hand i use to measure my protein and fat"

    Couple more I'm finding: 
     
    1. You always have a mason jar of coconut milk in the fridge
    2. Farmer's market vendors save stuff for you
    3. You are constantly running out of chili powder, paprika, and cumin. (I showed my spices to my father in law yesterday and he said 'Its like a SPICE LIBRARY!' This filled me with glee.

    .... They are constantly baking sweet potatoes at random intervals to make sure they are supplied for post WOD snack at all times.
    To quote on of my favorite (late) comedians, Mitch Hedberg,
    "It takes forever to cook a baked potato in a conventional oven. Sometimes I just throw one in there, even if I don't want one. Cause by the time it's done, who knows?"
    (Its much funnier by his delivery.)

    - They crave cabbage (ok, not all the time, but sometimes!).
     
    - They have packed lunch to take to a hair appointment.
     
    - They feel like a moron for taking so long to realize that there was a whole extra drawer available in which to store food in the fridge.  Who needs a dairy drawer?

    Ahah right. I am guilty playing another game called "what can I cook from a stranger's shopping cart contents".
    I LOVE faces of people standing behind me when I unload liver, hearts, kidneys and such at my Asian store. They probably think I am assembling frankencow in a lab later on.

    Before I started buying all my veggies at the market, I would strut through the supermarket and was that person who would stand smugly in line at the checkout, glorying in having the healthiest trolley there.
     
    Now I slink through trying not to catch anyone's eye because my trolley usually has meat, meat, more meat, some butter for turning into ghee, sugar and tea for kombucha, if I'm extra lucky a pack of tampons, oh, and did I mention the meat?  Not a green thing in sight.  Everyone is looking at my trolley doing the "wtf mate" raised eyebrow.
