    Plan a Whole30 dream vacation

    Whenever we travel my husband and I try to rent an apartment. This gives us the ability to 'live like a local'. We get to experience local grocery stores and markets and interact with locals in a less touristy environment. My husband likes to cook so we don't necessarily worry about a personal chef - although daily housekeeping would be awesome! Not only does this way of travel make a Whole9 vacation more realistic it is often more economical than a typical hotel stay with every meal at a restaurant - so it may put your dream vacation within reach!

    Don't over think this.

    Hey Amy, Unfortunately hospitals are not bastions of healthy eating! I did a clinical rotation at a facility that had a McDonalds! In our busy unit we often do not get a full sit-down lunch break. Many people resort to the 'running to the break room and scoffing a pack of graham crackers an some peanut butter' a few times a day in lieu of a real meal. Hence my victory with my eggy/muffiny things

    Don't over think this.

    Thank you for this! I worked a rogue night shift this week (between day 2 and day 3 of my W30) and was having some guilt twinges regarding my every 2 hour egg/meat/coconut milk/veggie 'muffin' - but it allowed me to get through the night without having graham crackers and peanut butter (an ICU staff nutritional staple!). It's not what I do on a normal day, but I survived my shift with my W30 intact so it was a victory. I think we are very hard on ourselves sometimes. I was actually feeling GUILTY about the 'egg muffings' because I felt I was 'snacking'. Then I remembered that we hear a lot about context here. And in that moment (or those 12 hours) I was doing what I had to do to maintain my W30. And I felt better. Yay me!!
