    The house smells amazing on Sunday afternoon but no one gets to eat it because it's going into the freezer for later in the week.

    The other day on Facebook a girl I know posted a photo of her daughter playing (maybe 4 or so) and this was the caption: "Vivi and I were playing shop and I said should I get the cupcake? She said I don't know mom I think its 4 points." She and all these people commenting thought it was the cutest thing while I was absolutely horrified. I actually feel bad for the mother because she thinks she's teaching her about healthy eating habits. And to be fair, all I know is the one comment but still. I hope my kids don't know about weight watchers at 4.

    This topic is super fun. You are all making me laugh so much!

    LOL Krista! That was totally me this weekend! Carnitas, roasted carrots, Moroccan Meatballs, roasted mushrooms, steamed broccoli, baked chicken thighs and drumsticks, sweet potato hash...and I had bacon (surprisingly, while mine is a name brand, it doesn't have sugar! Hooray!) and eggs for dinner as my last non-whole30 night!
    Edited to add:
    You go to a restaurant for breakfast and are totally bummed about the lack of veggies on the menu. "No cauliflower mash for breakfast?"

    Co-worker: "I am going to get food, I am starving". Comes back with a bag of chips. Then he goes: "Look, guys, they have new flavour, guacamole! Wanna try?" I politely refuse. "I thought you said you CAN eat avocado" (very disappointed voice).

    This thread, like others have said, is hilarious...and horribly sad. Let's see what I've had recently...
    "Want a cupcake? They're the dinner of champions!"
    "You really don't want the cupcake? Still sticking to that resolution?"
    "I'll trade you my [boxed German fruitcake he got as a gift] for your chocolate-dipped pretzels!" (in my defense, the pretzels were a gift and I brought them straight to work to get rid of them)
    "You don't have any more trail mix?" (my boss used to eat the big container of trail mix on my desk; I don't have it out for now because I don't want temptation that close until I have more control)
    "You're eating paleo? Here, have a bowl of popcorn. It's FREE." (when I turned this one down, he offered cheese and crackers, then a candy bar yeah.....)
    I am avoiding the one gas station because when you go in to pay, you are offered a FREE REESE'S EGG or Cadbury egg and they're big on hawking them. They're FREE because you bought so much gas!!!!! The other station offers them too, but you have to go inside (instead of the paying kiosk with the guy) to get one. I never turned them down until now!
    Luckily, one of my coworkers, who sits behind me, has done paleo before. She doesn't anymore (she's a weight lifter who prefers protein bars and powders to eating real protein...yeah...) but she's at least being nice and asking how it's going, how many days I've been on it, if I've cheated, etc. It's nice to have someone supporting me (until my hubby comes home anyways).

    My other half has bad eczema on his feet which has been bothering him lately. As i sat watching him picking his feet (romantic night in!), i said "are you going to make another appointment with the doctor? Or perhaps you could do an elimination diet like i've been doing?". He replied "Well, i have been, haven't i? I eat the same dinner as you"
    Yes, dear.
    We'll just discount the porridge oats for breakfast, the pizza/burger/sandwich/sausage roll at lunch, the chocolate biscuits in your cup of tea (milk, one sugar), the bowl of ice cream with chocolate raisins after your Whole30-compliant dinner, the nightly can of beer & the smoking. Sounds like a pretty good Whole30 to me!

    What?

    I haven't eaten anything bad in my dreams yet, but last night I dreamed I cried in front of a bunch of people (my old coworkers, bizarrely) because they were all eating cookies and crackers and candy and I couldn't. One of them called me a weirdo and I responded by screaming something about not having had sugar in two weeks! I am even hard on myself in my dreams, I guess. And also feeling a little sorry for myself.
