Me: I'm not drinking any alcohol for 30 days. I'll be sticking to the Paleo diet afterwards though and I think I can have the occasional glass of red wine.
Mum: That's not so bad.
2 hours later
Mum: Let's have a glass of wine!
Me: I can't drink alcohol Mum
Mum: I thought you said you could drink wine?
Me: Yeah after the 30 days.
I have to laugh at my parents who've been "diary free" for around 2 years but never gave up chocolate and they've started eating cheese now. They drink soya milk/dairy free margarine instead of cow's milk and butter.

Overheard at work
coworker 1: "I just ate two donuts and here I am getting more food"
coworker 2: "yeah but that's not Real food, it doesn't count"
coworker 1: true. it's not filling. Wonder if they have pizza left?" (at the commisery)
coworker 2: I'm getting a grinder, need some veggies" (veggies = 1 leaf lettuce, & maybe some tomato/green pepper smothered in spaghetti sauce)
And then they both come back with pop, potato chips and candy. Nothing else.
Me-just reaffirms why I'm doing this....I Refuse to become a "typical" state worker

My friend said "Oh it's all right for you, you've always been able to give things up (having a severe gluten reaction, I've had no choice) but I couldn't possibly eat like you - I like my food too much"
Another friend " Oh I couldn't possibly eat like you - I couldn't afford all that meat and fresh vegetables are really expensive" while, I kid you not, filling her supermarket trolley with Over Â£80 of cakes, bisciuts, sweets and processed crap.

You watch an old episode of NCIS and when a character turns down the offer of a burger with a "No thanks, I don't eat food I haven't cooked myself", you immediately think Wow, that's how to do a whole 30.
and I really can't believe I'm doing this but
When you save up for ages for a new pair of leather boots and then decide to blow the money on a vacuum food saver instead - and you're excited about it
midwestgirl80 got a reaction from Mich in Alternative to coconut aminos
Hi MichB- Not sure if you managed to secure any yet, but I was finally sucessful! The website below has them in stock and will deliver. They are in Sydney, but they aren't near me so they actually hand delivered it to my office! But they ship through the Australia Post as well:
Hope that helps!
UPDATE: they have coconut sugar in them - I've posted in the "Can I have?" forum to see if this is okay (I am guessing no).

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."
