  1. Our first day after completing our Whole30 is my husband's birthday. I've managed to convince him to have a wonderful dinner at home (you know - give yourself the gift of health!), but he has asked for two things: beer or wine, and ice cream. I read the reintroduction in It Start with Food and had planned to follow it, except these two requests throw a curveball into the plan. Thoughts on keeping it a Whole30 day and then for dinner adding the alcohol and then having coconut milk ice cream? We'd have to watch the flavors and other mix-ins here, but figured it was better than dairy options. I was thinking I could then do the next two days Whole30 and get back on the regular reintroduction plan. We had such a successful 30 days, I just want to do my best to keep us on a good track! TIA

    Hibachi Restaurant

    Hey y'all! How's it going for all of you? I'm on my second day of my first Whole30 and I am loving it so far! I think I must still be in the honeymoon phase because I'm finding it very easy to say no to sugary, bready, cheesy things and I don't have any cravings. Has anyone else had this same experience? I'm guessing it'll get harder soon. Anyway: during the thirty days, my friend's birthday is happening in a week and we're all going out to eat at a hibachi restaurant called Sumo in Ithaca, NY. Check out the menu here: Also Easter is tomorrow and my grandma sent cookies for the whole family, which I don't have any problem resisting (at least for now, we'll see how hard it is tomorrow) and I'm the only one in my family doing the Whole30 and I don't want my parents to judge me or get worried that I'm "dieting" or trying to lose weight. I'm not. I simply want to feel better and have more energy. Also my mom's birthday is in a few weeks. And I'm taking a road trip next weekend. So any advice for eating out at a hibachi restaurant (does anything on the menu look Whole30-compliant, or should I bring my own food but then have to explain it to them?), road tripping while on the Whole30, and dealing with holidays/birthdays? I really don't think that resisting the food will be a problem because I'm very committed, but how do you deal with defying social norms and not eating cake around family and friends on special occasions?

    encourage me, please!

    Hi! We have a 6 month old who has had some medical issues, and we are beyond exhausted caring for her. One of my friends challenged me that I need to do something for myself. I did a Whole 30 two years ago and of course felt great. When I realized that if I started my second one today, I would finish the day before my birthday, I thought that might be the best gift I can give myself in this exhausting time. I know Whole 30 is time-consuming, but I can't eat dairy, corn, or soy, so I actually eat a lot of paleo recipes and foods to begin with. In this exhausting time, I've just resorted to a lot of peanut butter (organic and just peanuts) sandwiches (whole grain bread) - but I can do better and feel better. I would really appreciate your encouragement as we are super sleep deprived already! But my motivations are - better energy for me, great birthday gift, something different to focus on!, a victory I can be in charge of (as opposed to medical issues that are a guessing game), hopefully dropping that last 5-10 pounds so I can fit into my clothes!, doing something for me, and the kind encouragement and nice people of the Whole 30 forum. Thanks for any encouragement you can provide. It's a treasure!
  4. Hello ladies and gents, My significant other is in the middle of a whole 30, and she has a birthday coming up in a couple of days. I would like to prepare her something special for her birthday, but I am really at a loss as to what would be something suitable for such an occasion that would also be Whole 30 complaint. Any ideas for me, fellow travelers? Wishing you health and all the best, Mow

    Daughter's 5th bday!!!

    My daughter's 5th bday is in 2 weeks and I want to keep it as W30 compliant as possible. I know that this will involve "paleofying" things which is not totally W30 kosher but I HAVE TO do something to keep it somewhat normal. 5 is BIG and I do not want to disappoint! My kids aren't doing the W30 but most meals at home are compliant besides them gettng raw dairy and non compliant meals at daycare. Any tips/recipes for me. Most kids are quite picky but I don't want to dish out the usual treats we wouldn't even eat normally! I recently experimented with homemade Jellies (Great lakes gelatin/water/peppermint oil/stevia) and will will try other flavours (coconut milk, blueberry, sour citrus). They could be fun for them. Maybe apple/nut butter sandwiches. Veggie platter fo sho! Maybe a fruit platter too. Need a bit more food though... maybe grilled chicken strips or meatballs they can dip in ketchup (homemade of course). Is there a way to make a bday cake or cupcakes or other treats that will wow them??? HELP!
