    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."

    My fav is still the one about not licking our fingers. That makes me laugh every time.
    Last week I made oatmeal cookies with my daughter for a camp party and she asked if she could lick my fingers since I wasn't going to.

    This drives me NUTS! "Whole30 muffin" is an oxymoron! I always want to ask people if they've actually read the guidelines.

    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.

    Their freezer is full of picked-clean chicken carcasses waiting to be made into bone broth.
    I was going to take a picture of this but actually it's kind of gross. It's like Eraserhead 2 up in there.

    they are on farmers market at Saturday morning instead of sleeping
    they are able to buy and carry 20 pounds of organic beef on their own back across whole city
    they spend whole Sunday cooking, preparing and freezing
    they are only people who never touch free sweets at work
    they are angry if they see paleo pancakes labeled as "Whole30 approved" on Pinterest

    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?

    "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."
