    Dfroehlich got a reaction from MeadowLily in You know someone is doing a Whole30 when...   
    ...when your co-workers say, "I know you won't eat this, but I made (insert baked goods/pasta casserole/dairy-infused dish here) and you're welcome to have some if you want." And you just roll your eyes and turn back to your computer screen.
     
    ...when baby carrots, bell peppers, onions and sweet potatoes are ALWAYS in your fridge because they are now main staples in your diet.
     
    ...when you start thinking about holiday recipes you can take to gatherings months ahead of time so you'll have something compliant to enjoy - and they turn out to be the most popular dishes!

    This drives me NUTS! "Whole30 muffin" is an oxymoron! I always want to ask people if they've actually read the guidelines.

    Inspired by lahyshanny's "Your Whole30 Island" thread, and more specifically Munkers' comment, "I feel like the next step is to take this list and try to make a meal plan using only these foods. ", I have decided to give it a go!

    The central metaphor is that you are stuck on an island with only a certain amount of foods to eat. What would you bring if you could? What would you not want to live without? The framework can be as light or as dire as you choose to make it. As you will see, I'm keeping it pretty light. You're limited to only 10 items, hence the name Project X!

    For sanity's sake (or perhaps "shannity's" since it was her idea ), seasonings are allowed. My interpretation of that will include mustard, hot sauce, lemon juice (for making mayo), and vinegar, in addition to stuff like salt, pepper, garlic, curry powder, etc.

    I'm big on visuals, and figured being able to actually see my little island paradise would help me be inspired to try living there, so I whipped this up:
     


    My X items:
    Beef
    Chicken & eggs (I feel it's within the spirit of the game to include these as one item)
    Salmon
    Coconut
    Olive
    Avocado
    Cauliflower
    Broccoli
    Cucumber
    Coffee

    Some notes:
    * This'll be my 4th or 5th Whole30 so I "know the drill" ... this island metaphor is about fun and experimentation, not restriction or hardship
    * I eat keto, in case you were wondering about the lack of sweet potatoes, fruit, etc.
    * Having coffee take up a whole spot is more an acknowledgment of how simply I already eat rather than any kind of "OMG I can't live without coffeeeeee!!!" feeling
    * The cucumbers are mainly so I can have pickles, which I eat a lot with canned salmon, hard-boiled eggs, and mayo
    * I weight-train every other day in a fasted state (16:8 IF reporting in  )
    * No health or weight issues I'm currently trying to correct; everything is going swimmingly
     
    Dates:
    Monday, April 13 thru Tuesday, May 12
