    TravelPhotoWriter got a reaction from MeadowLily in You know someone is doing a Whole30 when...   
     
    LOL!!! I bought 9 at Whole Foods yesterday b/c they were on sale. The cashier actually ASKED ME, "So what do you make with all this coconut milk?"  
     
    (I said "A lot of creamy soups without dairy, but this will last me a long time, it's not like a week's supply - it's on sale.")

    When your stove top is remarkably shiny, because you need to wipe little coconut oil spatters off it every night.

    This thread kicks booty! I laughed out loud more than once. (The "gets mad when sees paleo pancakes marked as Whole30 approved" was my favorite.)
    Maybe me and Melissa Joulwan need to make a video called "Sh*t Whole30 girls say."

    Thank you for this!
    They have this conversation with the TJ's cashier (and this was yesterday)
    Me: do you have Larabars?
    Cashier: yes, many kinds. Do you want me to hold your place in line while you run over?
    Me: No. Thank you but I can't have them right now.
    Cashier: but they're just fruit and nuts
    Me: I know, but I have an unhealthy psychological relationship with them. They feel like dessert.

    This is an awesome thread!
    -- they know what carageen, soy lecithin, kohlrabi, and chard are
    -- they don't complain about feeling bloated or lethargic
    -- they are really disappointed when spaghetti squash is out of season and thrilled when strawberries come into season
    -- they find themself standing in front of the refrigerator saying "man I wish I had a cauliflower!"
    -- an egg is warming on their counter because they are going to make mayo

    ... they bring a tupperware container to the gym for their post workout snack.
    ... they specifically tell their waiter they want their meat dry grilled with no butter, no oil and no seasoning.
    ... they have 10 cans of coconut milk in their shopping cart at TJ's.
    ... they go to a restaurant and ask for a salad with no cheese, no dressing, no croutons, and no candied pecans. And they brought their own dressing.
    OK people lets have some fun. What else can you come up with?

    NEVER put a scoby in the fridge!! A scoby hotel should be at room temp. All you need to do is leave the scoby in a jar somewhere dark and occasionally add some fresh sweet tea. It will stay dormant (but healthy) for months and months.

    I just swapped out my scobys - put the one I've been using for almost a year into the hotel and took out the hotel one.  So far so good.  The hotel'd scoby is working just fine.  I'm sure yours will, too.

    Welcome to the Whole30 Forum!

    We are happy you are here, and think you will find this new format ideal for questions, answers and support during your Whole30 program and beyond. Below are the general rules for this forum. We ask that you read them through at least once, and abide by them at all times.

    General Forum Rules
    We run a family-friendly show around here. Please keep language, links and images PG-13; no "f-bombs," links to adult content or any other such things you would not say, read or watch around your kids Keep discussions respectful. We appreciate differing opinions and relish open dialogue, but we ask that you maintain your temper and your respect for others at all times. Do not spam or grossly self-promote in these forums. If you have a blog to share, by all means, link to it in your signature. If you wrote an article appropriate to a particular topic, go ahead and let us know. But keep it tasteful, and please do not use this venue to drum up business for your goods or services.  
    Respect the Copyright!
    Do not post recipes, articles, excerpts, or images from copyrighted materials. That means no copying recipes from The Whole30 or Well Fed into a post, no posting entire paragraphs from It Starts With Food, or posting links to PDFs of e-books you've purchased. These posts violate people's copyright (which is illegal), and it's just a generally disrespectful thing to do. If the item in question is posted freely online, you may copy the recipe or an excerpt from the post, but ONLY IF you provide a link back to the originating website. Posts found to be in violation of these rules will be immediately deleted, and the poster will be warned. Repeat offenders will be banned from the forum. We take this seriously, so please respect people's hard work and original material.  
    Posting Rules

    Before you submit a new question, SEARCH! We aim to keep forum material as streamlined as possible, and chances are your question has been asked (and answered) before. Do not cross-post across categories. Please choose the best category for your query, and post only once. Stay on topic! This forum is currently only for Whole30-related topics. Again, do not post, upload or attach copyright-infringing material which you are not free to redistribute (subject to the licensing terms of the specific item). If you are found to be in violation of these rules, you will either be warned or banned. A ban of your user account may either be temporary or permanent. The administrators and moderators also have the right to edit, delete, move or close any thread or post as they see necessary, without prior warning.

    General Recommendations
    Use a descriptive topic name, so we can answer your questions faster and more effectively. ("Help!" tells us nothing - "Headaches on Day 2, is this normal?" gives us a clearer picture of your issue.) Do not ask for (or expect) personal consulting via this forum. Should we feel your request requires more attention than we can provide in this setting, we will direct you to our consulting options. Welcome new members. Help new folks "learn the ropes" about how to find information and resources, and how to get involved in our Whole30 community. Thank you for your support, and best of luck on your Whole30 program.
