    Tenpoundbaby got a reaction from Raven in peanut butter and jelly is all they want   
    Hi!  I have a 6 year old and a 2 year old who are on Day 19 with me and my husband.  I think it really helped in the 2 weeks leading up to our Whole 30, we discussed things as we prepared and cleaned all the non-compliant foods out of our house.  They went thru the "Kill All The Things" phase about 5 or 6 days in, but besides that they have been fantastic sports!  I found their appetites increased dramatically, and their acceptance of new veggies and other foods has been great.  
    I think it would work for your kids if it was something your whole family was doing.  If my husband was eating cake at the office, it might be tougher for my 6 year old to forgo cupcakes at school parties. 
    Also, if there's no PB&J ingredients in the house, there won't be sandwiches right?
    My 2 year old is gradually eating more and different veggies, so I understand the "2 veggies" only thing.  They get over it.  She also likes her veggies with fruit in baby food pouches when we're out.
     
    Good luck with whatever you decide to do!

    Tenpoundbaby got a reaction from AnaRobin in Holymacaroni my kids have arrived to the "Kill all of the things" Phase...   
    "Kill all the things" lasted with our two kids about an entire weekend.  It's not fun but it should be fine after 3-4 days.

    Are you able to list a couple of days worth of meals for him (and you) for us to take a look at?
     
    I've struggled my entire life with skin issues - and I know there are certain healthy foods (like fruits and veggies) that will cause skin flares.
     
    Some items include:
     
    tomatoes, peppers, eggplants, potatoes - veggies from the nightshade family
    eggs
    nuts
    ghee - some people are extremely sensitive to dairy - so they will react to the minuscule amounts of milk fat left in the ghee. (I am one of these people)
    pork - not a dry skin reaction
    Certain fruits can cause this too - I have a slight issue with strawberries.

    Starting Day 8 and I have to say I'm so surprised and SUPER proud of my kids! (6 and 2.)  While we did have a "kill all the things" sort of weekend and I can see the stress from their carb withdrawls, they have been so strong.  At Sunday School I sent each of them with "treats"- one an organic fruit leather, the other 1/2 a Larabar & a few apple chips.  The 6 year old refused the chocolate chip cookie from his teacher but happily accepted the green grapes!  My 2 year old wears an "allergy alert" pin to help out- when an adult bent over to take a closer look at it she said, "It says Please Don't Feed Me!"  
    They talk about their cravings, and we have ensured them we are having them too. 
     
    One thing is for sure: doing this with kids and spouse keeps me accountable and on track.

    There was a great recipe on here of a sweet potato crusted quiche. I made it this week and it was very good. It takes some prep prior but I got 4-5 M1's out of it. Here goes...
    2med sweet potatoes shredded
    1package chopped mushrooms
    1package frozen spinach, thawed and dried well
    1onion sliced
    1dozen eggs
    2T coconut milk
    S&P to taste
    Coconut oil
    1c broth
    Sautéed onions and mushrooms in coconut oil until browned and start to soften, add broth and simmer until tender and pan is dry. Set aside. Fry sweet potatoes until browned and crisp in coconut oil, pat into baking dish like a crust. Beat eggs, coconut milk and add seasoning, onions, mushrooms and dried spinach. Pour over crust. Bake 400 for 20-25 min until eggs are set. Allow to cool, slice into individual servings and refrigerate. Grab your container on the way out the door, microwave for about 90 sec. Everything you need in one meal...protein, veggies and fat!
