mags79 Posted June 24, 2014 Share Posted June 24, 2014 Hubby and I are on day 20 and feeling great. After the 4th of July we're considering easing our girls into it (3, 6 and 10). Our 10 year old, we believe, could especially benefit from it. She has learning difficulties, eczema and about 3 times in the past week have had uncontrollable outbursts that have lasted 20+ minutes each. While I haven't fed them 100% Whole30 while at home, I have not bought new non compliant food. While away from home, anything goes. Here are my concerns: 1) Grandparents. We've done restricted diets in the past and it's always tough on the grandparents. They try and be supportive but they don't understand and get frustrated with the restrictions. We live close to 3 sets of grandparents, we eat with my in laws once a week and my dad and step mom gets the girls frequently throughout the week (we live 1 mi away). 2) SWYPO foods. I'm thinking these may be key in the grandparent department. If I can keep some Paleo cookies in their freezer for those times when a treat seems necessary to them, then it may be best for all. 3) Time! I know, this one I just have to prioritize, but some days I just don't know how. I'm figuring now until school starts is the perfect time but boy is it a lot of food prep and a ton of groceries. 4) Budget, good grief all this meat and produce is expensive, compared to oats, rice and beans and pb and j. Thanks for letting me process looking forward to your responses. Maggie Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
