    Coworker in the pantry today as I'm mixing up my massive turkey salad with carrots, jicama, cabbage, pepper, and cashews: One of these days I'm going to find you in here with a giant bowl of ice cream
     
    Yeah no you're not actually..
     
    Same coworker at a bridal shower as she stuffs her face with canoli filled cake: ohh you're having pineapple that must be a real treat for you!
     
    The irony is that later they were discussing another coworker who is donating a kidney. She asked said coworker if she'd lose weight then laughed and said if so, sign her up. 
     
    Soooo you'd rather donate an organ than put down the canoli and eat healthy? Wow. And I'm the "crazy" one

    Just had this conversation:
     
    Her:  You really shouldn't eat so many eggs.  Or if you do, just have the whites.
     
    Me:  Why?  All the nutrition is in the yolk.  That's the part that nourishes the embryo.  The white is basically amniotic fluid.
     
    Her:  Ew!  That's gross!
     
    Me:   Exactly.

    True, but that one life might last twice as long if you put some different foods in your pie-hole!

    My almost 16 year old daughter is along for this Whole 30 with me. She has been an amazing help prepping food,whipping meals together,etc.
    She was in her bedroom and was about to light a really nice smelling Yankee Candle that she got for herself last month when we visited the outlet store. I walked by her room and saw her standing there, confused. She said " I just for a second thought I could not light this because it wasn't paleo".
    It was a vanilla cupcake scented candle...

    Can anyone explain to me why my co-workers think I don't eat real food? I don't bring these comments on. They come to me. Today I was digging around in my drawer of food in the fridge and one of my bosses came by and said "Is that whole drawer full of your food?".
    Me: "yes it is".
    Him: "what have you got in there?"
    Me: Ground Beef & Cabbage, homemade mayo, an avocado, homemade soup, some vegetable salad...."
    Him: "don't you have anything EDIBLE in there??!"
    sigh...

    I had to make an emergency pit stop at a different grocery store and the only non-CAFO meat I could find was grass-fed beef in 1lb pre-wrapped packages. Obviously with huge health claims and stuff all over them.
    Me: walks up to the checkout counter with my beef and other stuff.
    Bagger: *picks up beef package* So what do normal cows eat?
    ...I can't believe factory farming is now "normal" and FEEDING A COW GRASS is something weird and remarkable.

    Costco's organic chicken stock is compliant but making your own is a far better choice.
