  1. Today is my 1st day of the January Whole30, and Melissa's email talks about how important it is to clean out your pantry. But what if you can't do it? I have a husband and three little kids, and my husband is definitely not up on the program. Even when I tried to clean out our pantry of cereals, he ended up just buying more. Yes, I know, I know, we have an issue there -- but it's one that we've had for years, decades even. I've come to accept that on this issue we'll never see eye to eye. I can eat what I want to eat, and I can feed kids when I feed them what I want to feed them, but I can't control his actions or convince him to join me. And it's not that he's eating unhealthily, it's just that he's a true follower of all the conventional "best for your health" recommendations about needing whole grains, etc. Anyway, that means that we always have bread, dairy, etc. in the house. And I even have to handle them, because our kids don't have any issues with dairy, and I don't want to deny them yogurt (unsweetened) or sour cream or butter just because I'm on Whole30; so I serve it to them. but oh, it's hard to cut brie and not want to put it on my plate. Or that yogurt with fresh fruit while my own dinner is not yet ready, and I'm tired from a stressful day at work and kids' din of voices and I so want to just fill my bowl like theirs... Help! Any advice for staying the course of Whole30?
