    Conversation during dinner last night:
     
    Hubby: What's this red thing?
     
    Me: Tomatoes quartered, seasoned with salt, pepper, garlic powder, tossed with coconut oil and roasted in the oven.
     
    Hubby: Hmm. It's really good but you know I don't like tomatoes.
     
    Me: I know. Give it to me & I'll have it for breakfast.
     
    Hubby: Oh, I ate it all. But this pasta is really good. Have we had this before?
     
    Me: It's not pasta. I julienned zucchini and summer squash, seasoned it up and then sauteed it
     
    Hubby: I hate zucchini.
     
    Me: Ok, just give it to me and I'll have it for breakfast tomorrow.
     
    Hubby: Oh, I ate it all.
     
    Me: (Silently giving him a confused look)
     
    Hubby: Why are you looking at me like that?

    Today my grandma told me that "Bill O'Reilly says you need to do ___ and you'll never have to diet."
     
    Regardless of your political views, I think we can all agree that Bill O'Reilly is no expert on nutrition or a healthy diet.

    That's a hard one cg as a lot of new research indicates high cholesterol is not necessarily unhealthy but only sometimes an indicator of a health problem. Also that reducing cholesterol through medication is only reducing a symptom not fixing the cause of the problem. So my advice to you is find out a lot more before acting. It's worth a retest too as sometimes the results can vary a lot. Also I hope you know your body makes its own cholesterol so its not just as simple as reducing animal fat consumption any way.

    This has happened to me today, I posted in my log, however I feel like sharing in this thread too
    I love liver and all organ meats. I am walking down the aisles of the organic store. I see this pack and get all excited.

    Conversation while paying. Cashier: "Oh your dog is gonna love them!" Me:" I don't have a dog". Akward silence. I stare at the pack. It's a dog treat. Facepalm.

    In my grocery cart: two beautiful bunches of asparagus, ten avos ( on special), six yams, one clamshell each strawberries and blueberries, a bunch of bananas, a red bell pepper.
    One woman: "I want your shopping cart! Such healthy food!" (What I didn't say: "You just need to put stuff like this in your own cart!") Guy ahead of me in checkout line said he was jealous because he wished he could afford food like that. The second one was more sad than crazy. I referred him to look up the Whole30 site and told him how lots of people are finding ways to eat healthy on a budget.
    It seems to me some of the best food deals are in the produce aisle.

    Away for Work today and made the comment that its not too hard to eat healthy when away when you know what to look for (I had brought in a salad I made from supermarket ingredients) and the joking response was.... It might be easy but why would you want to..... My response... My mum is on her second round of cancer, my dad died of cancer, my mum and sister have diabetes and two weeks ago I just had my 7th surgical procedure.... Stunned silence then agreement that eating healthy was probably a good thing.... LOL

    Here is what I learned from what I have read here...
    Cheaper cuts of meat can become tender and delicious thanks to the crockpot.
    Not all fruits and veggies have to be organic. For example, if there is a peel that is not consumed as part of it, I don't go organic.
    Tuna and sardines are delicious, compliant and cheap .
    You are so lucky to have Farmer's markets available!

    You can do whatever you want while not on a W30, but under zero circumstances do I believe that soda of any variety makes you anything but LESS healthy. Your call though!

    It's funny. I see all these comments that fruits and vegs are "cheaper at the farmers market than in the store". Not here. And I've been to Farmers markets where they sell bananas. I have yet to see a banana "locally grown" in the Chicago area.

    Just remember to buy what you can afford. You can do this eating all conventional or even just a mix of conventional and organic.
