    We had 3 feet of snow from a storm in 2016. DH told me we were fine on eggs so I didn't stock up.  My friends who were not snowed in were treated to a countdown of how many eggs were left as the storm progressed.  (I believe we started with a dozen--really not enough for 3 people...)

    I can get local, organic, sweet corn and it is so perfect it doesn't need salt or butter.
    And even before paleo, primal or Whole 30, I knew it didn't agree with me. I ate a couple ears a year and suffered.
    This year I'm going to listen to my body.
    I'd say eat it and see how you feel. And really listen for a few a few days after. (Let's just say it takes a while for my body to process what it can't digest...)

    I haven't reintroduced alcohol since I did my first Whole 30 in January.  I haven't stressed about it as an ingredient in mussels or in a steak sauce but I haven't had a drink since.  I don't miss it.  I did briefly contemplate a glass of wine a few weeks ago but  I can't find my corkscrew.

    I don't drink much alcohol, but after 100days without, I was amazed how when I did have some, even just a few mouthfuls, the next morning my body felt so tired it was hard to get out of bed... I tested this a few times over a week or two and it was definitely the alcohol making me feel so drugged!
