  1. @Rebecca001wow that looks so good! Yes, insomnia has been a huge issue for me since childhood. Can not seem to get on top of it. And now while pregnant it's much worse, as I get hormonal insomnia with pregnancy too. But if I go to bed early enough I manage ok. And the whole30 makes me feel so good it doesn't seem to matter.
  2. As far as exercise goes, I'm hooked on barre3. It's been all online since March, but especially during pregnancy it's so great.
  3. omg that looks so good! I love shrimp! I am 38 and this is my 4th whole30. I started Jan 1 too, and my favorite thing about the whole30 is that the tiger blood kicks in for me almost immediately (in the first 2-3 days) which is such a huge help as I am a busy full-time mom to 4 kids (ages 1-9) with one on the way due this spring. I do need to focus on more balanced meals and less snacking, as I do get lazy with the template especially between breakfast and dinner. How is everyone feeling?
  4. Awesome everyone! On day 5 over here and feeling pretty good. My kids are happy to eat a can of sardines for a snack (I know, I don't even know how I got so lucky - but on the flip side they don't sleep for sh*t so I guess there's always something) so I feel like I can stock the house with compliant things and not be surrounded by temptation. I also find once I get past day 3 or so it's relatively easy to avoid temptations and cravings aren't as strong.
  5. Yay! I had a false start a few months back but am now on day 3 of my fourth whole30. Every single time I feel so incredible right away, I don't know why I don't just eat this way all the time (well, yes I do...) I am 38 years old and 24 weeks pregnant with my 5th baby. My other kids are 1 (2 next month), 4, 6, and 9. They'll eat whatever I make so it's easy to just change everyone's diet when I embark on this. Very grateful for that. So excited to start 2021 on this foot.
  6. I am starting on Monday oct 26. My husband will follow me a couple days later as he has a colonoscopy (ugh!) on Tuesday.
  7. I don't know for sure but I think that sounds ok? I'm doing split pea and bacon soup tonight with a side of sweet potatoes (the Japanese kind - my absolute favorite) with chipotle mayo for the potatoes... I know bacon is technically a fat source so I think the soup totally counts as a complete whole30 meal!
  8. Hi @CGinDC!! We are actually starting in a couple days as we had some things we have to finish off that aren't entirely compliant. But we're right behind you! How are you feeling today?
  9. Oh my gosh @BabyBear, I am so sorry that happened! I am so excited to start this whole30, I'm also hoping to get my husband on board too, he's had a lot of challenges with fatigue and GI stuff and migraines and I think this would help him a lot. I am so glad to be on the other side of the crippling exhaustion and nausea and food aversions!
  10. @BabyBear so cool you are expecting number 5 too, congratulations! How was your first trimester? this one was the roughest for me by far, but I also don't have the usual outlets I've had in the past (socializing at school drop-off, barre3 classes, etc). So much nausea and rage and fatigue. Morning nausea still lingers (I'm 12+1 now) but everything else is way better. @ChristyJ, yes I've done 3 and kind of 4 whole30s but only one that felt like I was really in control and didn't "cheat" with just having a bunch of whole30-compatible snacks all day. I'm so ready to dive in again, esp
  11. Hi Mama! I am a mom of 4 and pregnant with baby 5 due in April 2021. I am so sorry for your stressful year! I am starting October 26, which would make the 30 days end the day before Thanksgiving. Planning to have our thanksgiving foods use whole30 ingredients but not necessarily in the "spirit" of the whole30 (think rolls made with almond flour, etc). I am so happy to do this with you. How does that start date sound? Katie
  12. @kirbz, yeah I don't seem to have any actual food issues or sensitivities whatsoever, I just have very volatile blood sugar (have since I was a kid!) and eliminating grains and added sugars of all kinds really give me the steady stream of energy I need. even dates are fine for me, if I don't eat them alone. I notice the higher the fat I consume, the better I do. As is so often recommended - especially for breastfeeding moms! I do get the tiger blood for SURE when I manage to eat enough, so at least that part is encouraging. How much fat do you manage to eat with your meals? I will straight up
  13. Kirbz, it's actually nice to see your day 1 details Yeah, my mom is one of those rare people who just eats very intuitively and slowly and never (like - ever) eats to stuff feelings, etc. She had a horrible childhood and got an ulcer when she was only 11 from the constant anxiety, so I think that probably made food not very comforting from an early age for her Fortunately she's found a great husband and partner in my dad, and has struck a great balance in her life now. She's outrageously active, energetic, and healthy - so it can be done! How are you feeling today? I am very crabby and
  14. I am breastfeeding as well. I get those Montezuma's "absolute black" chocolate bars from Trader Joe's - they have zero sugar (or fake sugar), and have cocoa nibs. I think it can be hard, with hormones and sleep deprivation (oh god the sleep deprivation) to avoid cravings. I definitely get them badly, especially at night. Good luck, mama!
  15. Hi, Kirbz! this is my 4th whole30, too! for me it's all about mood and energy. Sleep would be a nice bonus, too. I'm a chronic insomniac - it takes me at least an hour to fall asleep every night without fail (been like that since I was a kid) and when I get woken in the night by the baby or one of my kids, I often am awake for a couple hours. It's just brutal! I have 4 young kids who need me at my best and I'm tired of being moody and irritable. I always feel SO MUCH BETTER when I'm doing the whole30. Thanks for sharing recipes! I don't need too much variety day-to-day, just a few
