    beespajamas got a reaction from Alix B. in The crazy things people say   
    When I told my daughter (a nurse) about the food restrictions and Whole30 program she said "Oh, in other words, if it tastes good, spit it out."

    They know exactly where that button is because they INSTALLED it.

    I'm loving this thread - just "found" it and have been reading off and on for a couple of days now...  I'm still new-ish, but am sure I'll have some contributions at some point...

    I've used the grater attachment on my food processor rather than pulsing it with the regular blade and I like the texture better.
    I make it almost weekly! I love it for meal one with eggs and under Moroccan meatballs.
    but I definitely need to try the oven roasted method bc it always makes a huge mess on my stove.

    Because my DH did not want to do Whole30 with me, I sent him the guidelines and a link to the timeline so he would at least know what to expect.
     
    In spite of that, he chose to ask me on Day 4 (Kill. All. The. Things.) "How is your Diet du Jour going?
     
    Grrr....
     
    (I'm on Day 14 now, and DH is still among the living thanks to my remarkable restraint.)

    In a discussion on a weightlifting group on Facebook, in which I mentioned that I woke up this morning with a broken blood vessel in one eye, my second one in two weeks, some dude told me that Whole30 is a "dysfunctional and restrictive fad diet," that it's low-carb, "needlessly restrictive," filled with "energy-poor choices" that are "notorious for not being able to support a decent activity level," and -- wait for it! -- the possible cause of my recently-diagnosed hypothyroidism.
     
    This is the kind of thing that makes me regret speaking to other people, as opposed to, say, breaking a chair over their heads.

    "salad is not a food!"
    wha-what? I still wonder what they think salad is.
    One of my favorites was a vegetarian co-worker who was drinking a Diet coke and eating Fritos and a hostess cupcake told me that the grassfed steak on my salad would give me colon cancer. I looked at her lunch and then at mine and said "that is a risk I am willing to take."
