  1. Superbowl Sunday

    Alright all you Whole30ers, what are your plans for Superbowl Sunday? Are you abstaining completely and staying home? Eating beforehand? Preparing Whole30 approved snacks? (Is that even allowed?) I need a plan!
  2. Kids birthday party

    Okay took my son to a birthday party that had pizza chips and cake. I ATE NONE. they had fresh vegetables so I had some raw broccoli, carrots, cherry tomatoes. They also had some fresh fruit and I had a serving of fresh fruit. Then on the way out I had 3 hard boiled eggs and a cup of black coffee. I feel the only missing was some fat, but honestly I didn't trust the guacomole they had there and it might have been too much to finish. Any advice?
  3. I am on Day 7. On Day 6, Friday night, we had a cocktail party to attend. I really wanted to go as there were some good friends there and possibly some new friends, which is always nice. But I was concerned, of course. To prepare, I ate dinner just before going so I wouldn't be actually hungry. That was a good move. And I was prepared to just drink water. After greeting and being greeted, we all moved toward the bar set up in the back yard. Soda, wine, and booze. I found one lone bottle of Indian tonic water. Okay. Water. Perfect. Poured it, added lemon, took a sip. Not sure. Took one more, quizzically, but wasn't sure if the sweetness was the lemon or what. Checked the bottle. Sugar. I had no idea there was such as a thing as sweetened tonic water. My sips were miniscule. This week I've learned that my first bites of something I didn't make myself or buy myself need to be like testing for the king himself -- just little tiny bits to let my tastebuds tell me what I need to know. Went to the kitchen and poured tap water. The table had the usual array of snacks at parties in India and a few nods to the Americans tastes of the host and guests: samosas (nope), little hamburgers (maybe, if I take off the buns), dips (too unclear), watermelon (okay), raw veg (okay), paneer (nope), various deep fried pasty covered things (nope, nope, and nope), and an appetizer sized quiche thing (nope. So, table assessed, and loaded with tap water with lemon, I visit, chat, and nibble on carrots. Tried the hamburger sans bun only to realize I had a mouth full of potato (it was some Indian kind of "hamburger" thingie). Spat it out without swallowing, delicately, in the kitchen, where no one could see me. Barely avoided that one. went back to carrot and cucumber snacking. Probably should have just NOT snacked. Probably should have just relied on my very own water bottle, which I carry with me everywhere in part because of safe drinking water issues in India, and in part because of Whole 30, as I like to have flavors all day, so I carry flavored water (ginger, mint, lemon grass -- more or less weak, iced cold tea). So it was a success, but for the two very tiny tester sips of the tonic water. But what a MINE FIELD! OMG. Ironically, the host was our doctor and his wife. And all I could eat drink was veg sticks and tap water :-)
  4. I've been kinda paleo for about 8 months, and started a Whole30 on Monday to (hopefully) finally kick the sugar cravings and get myself back on track after a crazy summer and first few months of grad school. Honestly, its been great so far, but when I decided to start, I failed to realize that all of my best friends from college are getting together for a big reunion/party weekend at one of the girls' mountain cabins. Basically, its going to be a big, drunken party with all of my favorite people. So, my question is, if I choose to partake in the festivities (i.e. drink), will it totally derail my Whole30? Thanks!

  5. Because of an unfortunate run-in with pizza last night, I am restarting my whole30 today. This means that I will be be whole30ing it on Halloween. We are hosting an outdoor dinner this Halloween because we finally live in a neighborhood with tons of trick-or-treaters. So, a group of friends will come by, we'll eat outside (we live in Florida, so the weather is still pretty nice for outdoor dining) on the porch, and hand out candy. We are going all out with the decorations, and I am trying to figure out the menu. We'll have about 10 people over (all adults), and about half are paleo-ish. The other half are flexible and one has an absurd love of legumes. I know I'd like the main dish to be the famous Well Fed Chocolate Chili with some avocado slices, onion, and olives for garnish. Am I required to put out sour cream and cheese? I am going to go ahead and make a side of black beans so the legume-lover can add them to her chili. But what else should I serve? I'd like a couple more items, maybe an appetizer or two, and something sweet for the end (I was thinking baked apples, or maybe apples with homemade cashew butter...) So, does anyone have any suggestions? Also, just as a side note - has anyone changed their halloween candy preferences for trick-or-treaters after whole30? Do I have a responsibility to hand out a healthier treat or am I overthinking this? Thanks!
  6. Need ideas!

    I am having a celebration for my college graduation in December. I want to keep the food entirely paleo, but there will be a fairly decent amount of people. So, I am needing ideas/recipes of food to serve in a buffet style. Any advice? : )
