    If you google search peas and Whole-30, you'll find the "Can I have..." forum for green peas.  I think your decision to just keep going is a good one.  I seriously doubt you are in danger of doing what my mom used to do when she was on Weight Watchers back in the 1970s...she would open a can of peas or green beans and eat them right out of the can, cold, because she was so hungry!

    Hello, so it seems I am not that great at keeping this up.  The journal, I mean, not the Whole 30.  Whole 30 is going great.  I am not brilliant at getting the meals together as per the template and I have definitely snacked on fruit when I shouldn't but as Melissa says, there is no such thing as a perfect Whole 30.  I have been completely compliant with all my food choices and I am feeling great today.  
    Have a great day!

    Day Three and the headache is gone, thank goodness!  I really wanted to skip my Tai Chi class last night, and I was making all sorts of bargains with myself on the way home, but then I thought in the spirit of Whole 30, I'd just do it and I am glad I did.  It was fun and I am looking forward to the next one.
    Breakfast: Tinned mackerel (I love my fish!)
    Lunch: Chicken stuffed with aubergine pesto and wrapped in bacon, assorted vegetables and half an avocado.
    Dinner: Ribeye Steak with a baked potato and homemade coleslaw - I am excited about this one!
    Happy Weekend to anyone reading this! x

    Hello, my name is Tevenie and I AM GOING TO DO A FULL Whole 30!
    I have Multiple Sclerosis and am very overweight which is one of the worst things you can be with MS, apart from smoking.  I have tried every diet / food fad / ridiculous thing under the sun - none of which work because I try to be overly restrictive and then I get totally overwhelmed and binge on rubbish.
    Today is Day 1.  
    Breakfast: Tinned sardines in tomato sauce, black coffee
    Lunch: Chicken stuffed with Aubergine Pesto, wrapped in bacon with roasted onion, brussels sprouts, tomato, courgette, and yellow pepper.
    Dinner: Butternut squash stuffed with mushrooms, walnuts, and onions with fresh sage.
    I am determined to do this!

    My mom's GF:
    "It's just a fad like so many other diets that came around and that nobody remembers anymore"
    Me: "Well, yeah, I guess you're right. T'was a "fad" for 2,5 million years straight."

    I was at a friends birthday party & her husband told me I wasn't a good friend because I wouldn't eat a piece of her birthday cake!

    "salad is not a food!"
    wha-what? I still wonder what they think salad is.
    One of my favorites was a vegetarian co-worker who was drinking a Diet coke and eating Fritos and a hostess cupcake told me that the grassfed steak on my salad would give me colon cancer. I looked at her lunch and then at mine and said "that is a risk I am willing to take."
