    How is everyone doing? I am in D.C. This week. It's been 20 degrees here and I live in Florida so no 10000 steps! Today it's 40 so I'm off soon. I'm pretty sure there was dairy in the Brussels sprouts at dinner last night so even though I already know that dairy doesn't bother me, I'm in for a restart. I decided I'm doing this til April 17th --my 65th birthday. I'm home for at least the next 3 weeks so I can do much better. How are you?

    Day 6. I'm in the zone. I went out of town for work this week and had to eat out twice since I have been home. Salads and chicken (can't say exactly what that chicken was cooked in but it's the best I could do) with oil and vinegar. Not at all tempted by the menus. But I woke up this morning with the WORST headache. Ughhhh. Who has time for this?!! Going for for the black coffee. May put some coconut oil in it. Maybe I need more fat.

    I know the feeling. We can do this! I did a Whole 100 in 2013. Best health ever. Been basically Paleo through 2015. Like everything else that went bad in 2016 I fell off the program. Very much looking forward to renewed health!

    Starting today! The first 2 weeks will be the most difficult because I will be traveling for work. But I have my emergency box and I'm committed to getting this WOE for life. I did 100 days starting in January 2013 and I never felt better. I'm going to be 65 in April. No time like today to begin my transformation.

    I am not a nutritionist but if losing weight is one of your goals I would limit fruit and not add back beans. I would add back whole fat dairy first. Did you add back dairy?

    Hi All! Today is Day 1. I'm 64 , pre- diabetic, stressed to the max with family and work issues and 15 pounds overweight. Having said that in here to inspire you all. 4 years ago I did 3 Whole 30's including the last one which was 100 days!!! ( no wine my biggest challenge!). I never felt better. All My numbers were great. I slept the best I ever had. My energy levels magnificent. All this in the face of my husband being ill and eventually dying. Over the past 3 years I have been mostly Paleo and/ or low carb (include dairy). I started a job that requires a lot of travel and that has been a challenge and I have been "medicating" stress with alcohol -- not abusing it but still not good It's time for a new Whole 30. I need the discipline and I need you! Last time we had a wonderful group. And they really got me through. I hope I can be helpful to you.

    Franco AMERICAN macaroni and cheese. What a hoot!

    Here's what I remember-- Franco Macaroni and Cheese in a can. My parents are still alive-- in their late 80s. My mom actually got healthy in her later years but now-- everything is frozen food and stuff with chemicals in it and they can't understand why they always have upset stomachs. It drives me wild. You can follow my Pinterest boards at Michelle Lobovits for the latkes and other good stuff. I don't know how to attach a recipe from my iPad My favorite one is zucchini and sweet potato latkes from the blog "I Breathe I''m Humgry". I made them last year and they were great.

    It's easier in the oven than on the stovetop. I promise. You don't need to look. And you can make them whenever you want and reheat them so you don't need to prepare them immediately before dinner. I have a lifetime of recipes for latkes. Sweet potato, zucchini, carrot. Mixed together. Let me know what you want.

    I like butternut squash roasted with olive oil and a little Penzeys cake spice or pumpkin pie spice. Add any of the following: raisins, dates, pecans. In addition for a bit savory-- add onions, Brussels sprouts. Oven at 400 put the veggies flat on a baking sheet. Roast for 35-45 minutes turning once until really soft and caramelized.

    Teresa-- here are my tricks for portable meals-- canned tuna (wild planet with a flip top), canned salmon, canned hearts of palm, canned artichoke hearts. I keep them in my briefcase and another "set" in my office. If I'm home the one thing I always have is home made mayo and so I use it with the tuna or salmon. As for dying hair-- I do but I'm all about never say never when it comes to looking good. I think we all need to feel good about how we look. At 61 I often feel invisible. The other night I met some friends for dinner and as I was walking to meet them, for the first time in a long time I felt some guys eyes on me in the street. Gave him a big smile!!!! It's the Whole 30 look!,

    I am struggling with eating everything now. I make food and end up throwing it away. But here is what I found is good for an early breakfast. I mix an egg and 1/2 sweet potato in the magic bullet ( you could put spices-- Penzeys cake spice or Penzeys sunny Paris but I don't so early in the morning) and fry them on medium low in ghee. They make pretty bland pancakes and they are good.
