SO I know it is bad, but I kind of forget about Easter dinner. Ha! My mom loves making huge amounts of delicious food (could feed a small army for an evening with 10 people) I offered to make a pot roast (with potatoes, celery, carrots) and some green beans with compliant bacon. She said she would also have some fresh fruit for me to enjoy. Do you guys have plans?
After having my first successful run with Whole30 in January, I have encouraged my family to try it with me starting the day after Mother's Day! DH is finally onboard and ready to commit. DS is willing to give it a go, but a little scared, especially the thought of having to commit to 30 days (he did a 7 day sugar/gluten cleanse when I started my W30 in Jan). My main reason for pursuing this with my family is to alleviate some symptoms I've noticed in my son's health (low energy, weight gain, moodiness, mild gluten allergy, dairy intolerance, not hungry in the a.m., adult-sized appetite). Aside from the usual advice about reading the Whole9 literature about Kids doing the program, I would love some general tips and tricks from those of you that have had success with Kids' Whole30 or are in the process right now. Is there a mantra that helped you guide your kids through the program? A kid-friendly recipe website you couldn't live without? Did you modify the program at all for your kids? How did you explain the program to your kids to motivate and educate them? How did you manage slip ups? Any other words of wisdom to help with a 9 year old? Any advice you can offer is greatly appreciated!!
My husband & I have decided to start the Whole 30, mainly for healthy Lifestyle changes. I also battle Immunodeficiency, Autoimmune & a rare disorder called Mastocytosis. I truly believe this dietary change may help more, than some of the handful of rx pills & injections I take daily. (Yes, I will still take my doc ordered meds.) My children also suffer from autoimmune conditions as well. Should the whole family try the Whole 30 as well? 10 yr old & 4 yr old. Thanks for any advice!
