    Cauliflower rice skeptic...

    I would agree with you until I tried it this way. I really really really really hate cauliflower except as rice. I either use it as a fried rice, or make it from Well Fed as a side dish. I would gripe and moan about it raw if the family would put it in stuff. I thought it was the devil! (Insert Momma from Waterboy here) Give it a try and see what you think!

    The crazy things people say

    I guess the fact that I was eating a ton of veggies made a female coworker ask, "Are you eating for you and the baby?" First of all, I AM NOT PREGNANT, nor do I look pregnant. Second: I would never say that to another female even if she was pregnant. Third: We are not even friends so she has no reason to speak to me as if it is ok to say whatever is on her mind. Four: She is much larger than me (I know petty but she just called me pregnant) Fifth: It took everything I had not to say a snarky comment back about her health. (The comment was incase you were wondering , "Gee, I guess we all can't have your girlish figure and be as fit as you while eating that" Rant over.

    Where To Go? (and what to eat)

    Thank you, I thought that would be ideal to go with some type of steak. I have to go out to eat tonight and it is a chain and I had already planned to eat steak and broccoli plus I have made and packed my own salad dressing. I am done with my first Whole 30, but I love the way I feel and can't imagine making myself feel like I did before with food. (I didn't have allergies or anything, just loved food too much) Thanks again! Your help is appreciated!

    Chris, what do you get at Chili's? I can't eat seafood so hopefully you have a suggestion from there??? Thanks!
  7. Roz, for my birthday I was given three paleo cookbooks and then I turned around and ordered another one the next time. I am in the double digits of cookbooks and there is no sign of it stopping.
  8. The thought of eating out makes you extremely nervous.
  9. They completely throw out perfectly good bags of rice from the pantry...... They refuse to walk in the center aisles of the grocery store.......

  12. I am on Day 18 and I am feeling great! (Not to brag but to give hope) Finally had a break in the cravings. Man! That was rough for me. I mean they were coming at me from every side. I have great energy now and am not tired in the afternoon like I was pre Whole 30. I sleep well but not completely every night yet. It is a more restful sleep though, I toss very little now. The good sleep started about five days ago. I am certain that it will continue to get better. I think it may take more time to kick in for you. Maybe you are sleeping but not resting yet? I hope your energy picks up soon!

    Confused - Sulfites in Balsamic Vinegar

    Thanks for the clarification on white wine vinegar. 😀

    Confused - Sulfites in Balsamic Vinegar

    Trezk, that is a good question I am thinking that wine is out on period so anything made with wine is a no no. I could be wrong but I think avoiding it along with malt vinegar is the way to go. I doubt that the process to make white wine vinegar is going to rid the problematic ingredients to make it compliant.
