  1. I know that's the recommendation, but I struggle with this as well. I eat breakfast at 8am, lunch between noon and 1pm. But dinner is often not until 7-8pm because of my work schedule. So an afternoon snack is a must or I am ready to eat everything in the house when I sit down to dinner. We always have hard-boiled eggs on hand. Homemade beef jerky is the best, but I have never made it without soy sauce so I'll have to figure out a new recipe for that. A cucumber sliced or carrot sticks are good, too.
  2. OK guys, Day 2 and I have a big challenge tonight. I have to attend a dinner for a club I belong to at O'Charley's, a chain restaurant near my house. I don't want to skip it because I think I can't put my life on hold for Whole30, I need to learn to live my life with it. I've looked at the menu online and it is depressingly non-compliant. I am thinking I will order a Cobb Salad, without blue cheese or croutons. Here is how it is described in the menu: "The Classic with diced grilled and chilled chicken, tomatoes, bacon, avocado, hard-boiled eggs, bleu cheese crumbles, green onions and croutons on a bed of crisp romaine and iceberg with our Bleu Cheese dressing." I will skip the dressing and maybe even bring my own. What do people think? Is this compliant? I'm not one to order special at restaurants I always thought they must hate that but I guess I need to start.
  3. Morning, folks! What's for dinner on Day 1? I am planning beef ribs in the Instant Pot, I've got them thawing now. I'll have some bones to make bone broth tomorrow. Will serve with Asparagus and riced Cauliflower.
  4. It's Day 0, folks. Hope you are all cleaning out your cabinets and filling them with good food for our big start tomorrow.

    prosciutto and chorizo at Aldi

    ALDI has lots of great organic stuff at amazing prices. ALDI and Trader Joe's have the same parent company. There's actually two different ALDI's in Europe (I think "Nord" and "Sud") and one is ALDI and the other Trader Joe's in the US.
  6. That is great to hear. I take a fistful of meds every morning. Would love to change that.
  7. I am also starting Monday 2/19. I am a Whole30 newbie. I've read the book all the way through. I am headed to Costco on Sunday to stock up on good stuff. I am 54, a software developer and I work at home. My two kids are in college but I have three teenage stepsons who spend some time here. I am a diabetic, hypothyroid, have high blood pressure and high cholesterol. I also have joint pain in my thumbs and fingers from typing on a computer for more than 30 years. Hoping to improve all my numbers and eliminate my joint pain. Would love to be part of a group to keep us all motivated. Lisa
