    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!

    Trying to eat through the fridge before we leave on holidays creates some...er....odd meals.
     
    Breakfast this morning:
     
    Bed of spinach
    Leftover grilled peppers & pineapple (note, the pineapple was SO tart when I cut it earlier this week that it was inedible.  Grilling it made it so sweet it was like candy!)
    Chopped up chicken breast tossed in a 50/50 mix of mayo & Frank's Red Hot

    Curry for breakfast today! the grilled chicken in curry sauce from the w30 book (oven baked not grilled). With green beans, cauli rice and cocoa toasted cauliflower. All leftovers, all delicious. I'm sad it's gone.

    You no longer think of sweet potatoes as vegetables, but as a dense energy source that must be earned.

    When you buy no less than 7 avocados a week....because you MUST have some with almost every meal!

    I'm not sure if this is breakfast, or more of a brunch, since I slept later than usual, but this is what I had for my first meal today:
     

     
    Elvis burger (hamburger patty topped with almond butter, banana, and bacon), collard greens, and sweet potatoes (yes, they were slightly burnt. One of these days I'll learn to set a timer).

    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.

    Oh, fun!  
     
    As it is currently Eight Billion Degrees here today, I thought I'd start off this morning with a salad.  And yes, I ate it out of a huge tupperware because as we always say, your salad needs to be huge and all my large bowls were busy.  Contained potatoes, olives, pickles, peppers, tomatoes, greens, cucumbers, a hunk of meatloaf and this dressing.

    I've had people ask questions out of true curiosity and have tried to answer their questions briefly, then refer them to the books for further information.
     
    Critics.... I've tried to ignore them. It's been nearly 3 years since my first W30, and I basically do like the others above; ignore them and quietly eat what I eat. And feel really good about it....

    You buy Dairy Queen for  the nurses and your mom in the nursing home, drive back with them in the seat next to you, feed your mom ice cream, while you chomp on a turkey jerky and wipe each bit of Butterfingers blizzard off your fingers and really enjoy the jerky!  And, you are happy that she is enjoying her ice cream!

    When your date night consists of you eating a compliant meal at home and then joining your bf at IHOP to watch him eat gross food that you wouldn't dream of eating - EVER.

    When I was breastfeeding my 6 month old baby my (overweight) Mother-in-Law was living with us and made so many comments on a daily basis:
     
    MIL: Don't you need a lot of protein for breastfeeding?
    Me: Well I eat eggs every breakfast and meat with lunch and dinner
    MIL: Eggs have protein?
     
     
    *hears baby crying/fussing*
    MIL: She is probably allergic to all the veggies you are eating.
     
     
    MIL: Are you sure you're making enough milk? You have no boobs anymore!
    (I am a B cup)
     
     
    Pediatrician: You're not feeding her cereal? She needs it to get her iron!
     
     
    MIL talking about my toddler: Her tooth enamel is going to erode from eating too much fruit.

    co-worker: here, try these hummus chips. 
    me: no thanks.
    co-worker: they're healthy. they're made with garbanzo beans. 
    me: no thanks.
    co-worker: oh yeah, you're trying to be good. 
     
    Same co-worker started asking questions about my diet and was generally positive about it. She must be a people-pleaser because every time she eats something that's healthy to her she tells me about it. She did have an egg baked in an avocado -- with black beans though. This morning was funny:
     
    co-worker: I went out for chinese last night and if you don't eat the rice it's not that bad. I got the Happy Family with 3 different kinds of meat. Lots of protein! 
    me: i wonder what kind of oil they use.
    co-worker: oh yeah. it's probably peanut oil.
     
    I'm thinking soy sauce, flour and/or cornstarch, MSG, but I didn't say anything else.

    "But you're so skinny! You don't need to go on a diet!!"
     
    This made me very uncomfortable in the beginning, but those who cared enough to ask good questions quickly changed their tune. 
     
     
     
    "So how's your 'dinosaur diet' going?!"
     
    I guess Whole30 = paleo = cavemen = ... dinosaurs?
     
     
     
    "Oh! I once did a two week juice cleanse!"
     
    Does this sound possibly dangerous/counterintuitive to anyone else? lol
