Thanks for the tips ) the plan definitely does encourage real talk, lol.
My husband has not joined me on this (probably thinks I am crazy) but he understands since it is for health reasons. He is really enjoying the meals though! every single one he has had he remarked that he could really live with this kind of eating plan ) score for me since we can share the meals and that means much less meal prep for me. I also plan on switching to Paleo afterwards so this kind of eating will be long term.
The next family dinner will be interesting though, I come from a terribly unfit, unhealthy family that has no concern regarding the effects of anything they consume . Donuts for breakfast is a staple! And from a partly portuguese background, mealtime is a big social affair that goes on for hours and includes a lot of wine I am sure they will be horrified to see what they are eating, and even more so when they see there is no wine. what! no Wine!?.
