    So I made this great breakfast of leftover cooked veges with three beaten eggs and showed off my beautiful creation still in the pan to my partner and instead of telling me how great it looked I got.... thats a lot to eat for breakfast!!!
    Was so tempted to say yeah right, 350 calories of healthy unprocessed food is bad for breakfast but your two weetbix with milk and muesli on top is the better meal? Hmmmph!

    But it's probably the artificial sweeteners that are contributing/causing her migraines, and crystal light has the same artificial sweeteners in it as diet soda...I used to get headaches from splenda and aspartame (though I had to consume a lot more aspartame to get a headache, which I think is odd)
     
    My friend likes to joke and say that all I eat is kale. "You can't have that, it's not made of kale." He also calls me a hippie a lot. Just because I go to the farmer's market every saturday, make my own deoderant and toothpaste, doesn't mean I'm a hippie...Ok, maybe a little...

    Since our stomach fills up by volume, it makes more sense to use volume than weight. Veg is 1-2 cups per meal.
    You could think of a cup of veg as what you can fit into two hands cupped together if that works for you. Good luck.

    “Why don’t you try smaller portions and eating every 3-4 hours?”
    Breaking news! Thank you for that. It’s just really hard for me to convince my mind,  that eating all day long is a good thing. And I’ve tried it!

    a conversation between some coworkers today that goes like this:
     
    "I can't eat gluten (she has a sensitivity) but I still eat junk food... it makes me feel sick"  -- well uh, if it makes you feel sick, why do you eat it?
     
    (when someone mentioned not eating carbs - meaning breads -  today) "I don't know what planet you're on, but that's just not possible for me"
     
    "I don't eat (red) meat so I don't feel bad eating carbs" - another coworker's respone to this was "oh yeah that balances out" -- yeah, totally balances out.
     
    "I would die if I couldn't eat cheese, I love cheese"  -- acutally I'm quite certain you would not die.
     
    I'm just keep my head down and rolling my eyes. lol

    Is this question for me? I have eaten for 2 meals once during my Whole30.
     
    I normally have eggs for breakfast, chicken or fish for lunch and lamb or beef for dinner.
     
    On Monday however, I had eggs for breakfast and then got home and realised I wanted eggs for dinner as well, rather than the chilli I had made.
     
    On Tuesday, I had chilli for breakfast.

    We as moderators see a lot of confusion around here on what constitutes a serving of eggs when eggs are your primary protein source. We tell you as many as you can hold in your hand without dropping but I still don't think people actually try this. So I thought I'd post a visual for you folks. It would be fun if other people added their own pictures too. Try the experiment.
     
    Context - I'm 5'4" female and these are large eggs.

    Away for Work today and made the comment that its not too hard to eat healthy when away when you know what to look for (I had brought in a salad I made from supermarket ingredients) and the joking response was.... It might be easy but why would you want to..... My response... My mum is on her second round of cancer, my dad died of cancer, my mum and sister have diabetes and two weeks ago I just had my 7th surgical procedure.... Stunned silence then agreement that eating healthy was probably a good thing.... LOL
