  1. My husband's nightshade symptoms are basically psoriasis and arthritis type symptoms. Itchy, blotchy skin and sore joints. He doesn't have any sore/swollen throat issues from nightshades.

    The crazy things people say

    Me: "No thanks, I can't eat wheat" (which is kind of a lie. It's more like I _don't_ want to eat wheat.) Lady giving our free samples at the grocery store: "Oh, I'm so sorry!" I felt like saying "Don't be." She was handing out samples of some pasta covered in a bottled cream sauce with mushrooms. All I could think was "NASTY!" There was no shortage of people taking the free sample.

    "That was quite possibly the worst meal I ever made!" Exclaimed my mother when she _insisted_ that she cook dinner for a family gathering and wanted to do it 'whole 30' style because that was our latest 'fad'. However, when I said 'whole foods', she took that to mean, no fat, no spices, no nothing. I offered to cook. I offered to go to a restaurant. But no, she wanted to host everyone for a 'meal'. We had roasted pork loin with no seasoning on it. Zucchini that was cooked to death and mashed sweet potatoes (which was the only edible thing. Then she added "I don't know how you stay on this diet!" as she broke out the Heath bar ice cream. My teeth were so sore from trying to chew the shoe leather pork loin that I refrained from commenting that it wasn't the diet, it was the chef!

    Cauliflower rice skeptic...

    Yeah, I'm a convert too. I read the recipe and was like "Gross!" But doing the whole30 forced me to expand my horizons which was awesome. Now that I'm done with my whole30, I still eat the cauliflower rice instead of normal rice. I love it with meat and a sauce over it.
