    chezjulie got a reaction from Gwenn in Digestive Enzymes and Probiotic...   
    I take Enzymedia Digest Gold, which is carried at Whole Foods and on Amazon. It is the same brand that the first poster mentioned. No non-compliant ingredients and works great.

    When your non-whole30 husband (who absolutely refuses non-traditional breakfast food for breakfast!) says as we are cleaning up dishes from dinner, "I assume we are keeping all these leftover veggies for you to eat with meal 1 tomorrow?"

    You give up on using a regular lunch bag to bring your food to work and switch to a reusable grocery bag.
     
    Your mixing bowls forget they were once used to prepare cookie dough, instead have been repurposed as massive salad bowls … for one.

    I agree with what missmary and Loulabelle have said. 
     
    I'd also point out that we seem to have a different standard for meds for psychological issues than for meds for other issues, which is just silly. I've never contemplated not taking my blood pressure medicine just to see if W30 is enough to keep it under control without the medication -- why would you do that with your medication? (This isn't judgment of any kind, believe me -- I used to take antidepressants and while I've been off of them for a few years now and would certainly prefer not to take them anymore because I hope never to feel the way I felt when I finally broke down and asked my doctor about them, I do understand better now than I did back then that needing them was not some kind of moral failing on my part, it was just my brain needing some help to function the way it's supposed to, just like my body needs help now keeping my blood pressure where it's supposed to be.)
     
     
    This sentence also stood out for me in your post. I recently read an article in the Wholesome newsletter (a free biweekly Whole30 newsletter) that was written about people altering their W30 to make it harder, but I think it speaks to your point here too.
     
     
    Basically, a Whole30 is hard enough without going out of your way to make it harder, and going off a med that is improving your health would be going against the basic premise of a Whole30, which is to improve your health.

    LMAO I know this was 2 years ago but this resonated with me as I totally told a lady at the store who commented on all my healthy food how the margarine and bread was my husband and picky child's choices!

    ...when you gauge the temperature in your house not by the thermostat, but by the state of the coconut oil in your pantry.
     
    "I think it's time to turn on the A/C...the coconut oil is nearly all liquid"
     
    "Chilly morning today.  My coconut oil was very firm today and I had to break it up with a knife before scooping out some."
