pocketsofroses I'm seriously loving #whole30! I'm definitely detoxing with a headache and fatigue but I'm so much more satisfied hunger wise during the day. I made my own whole30 compliant mayo and herb de Provence dressing and it's delicious. Feeling good about my choices and commitment 5d
  •   fifiindc I need to try this! 5d
  •   juliablessing Yum! When did you start? 5d
  •   pocketsofroses @juliablessing I'm only on day 3!! 4d
  •   juliablessing @pocketsofroses I have been thinking of doing another. I am such a sugaraholic even when it comes to maple syrup or honey! Josh wants to do one but has a hard time committing to the work of food prep or eating certain things as snacks, for example, he won't eat eggs after 1030 am :-) I can do dinner for all of us but I'm not willing to do his other meals cuz I just don't have enough energy. How do you deal with having Saren around and eating different food? 4d
  •   pocketsofroses @juliablessing I'm a huge sugaraholic and I have no impulse control, I can eat a plate of cookies if it's in front of me. The prep is what kept me from doing it for the last year but I just bit the bullet and did it finally! Mike isn't doing it but he loves paleo anyway so he eats whatever I make for dinner, he's on his own for his other meals. Saren actually seems to be doing fine with it, he will usually eat whatever protein/fruit I make plus I keep quick grains on hand for him (couscous, rice pilaf, quinoa) to serve with it. I make them in bulk so I can reheat quickly if I need to. He loves couscous with feta and it's super quick to make and mix with shredded chicken and a veggie. If all else fails, I keep a few packages of Trader Joe's fresh tortellini on hand that I can have ready in about 7 minutes 4d
  •   juliablessing Great ideas thanks! 4d

pocketsofroses Seriously, thank Gaia for babywearing. Aster has had a rough day and only wants mama. I was able to do a ton of prep for #whole30 with her snuggled close and she finally settled down and fell asleep! 6d
  •   msillyman6 Is this how you stay healthy? Curious what whole 30 is?? 6d
  •   pocketsofroses @msillyman6 today was my first day! It's a 30 day commitment to eating only whole, real foods and no dairy, gluten, sugar, legumes! It detoxes and resets your body and digestive system as well as rids you of cravings for junk. So basically veggies, meat, some fruit, nuts and eggs. I make sauces with homemade mayo and coconut milk and spices! whole30.com has a ton more info! 6d
  •   msillyman6 Awesome! Thanks @pocketsofroses ! I'll check it out! It sounds similar to how I've eaten in the past but could really use a reset myself as there are definitely cravings creeping in! You look great and Aster is sooo precious! 6d

  •   bitsymae I grew up in Philly and went there all the time! Used to think it was called the "police touch" 7d
  •   juliablessing Philly is so fun with kids! 7d
  •   pocketsofroses @bitsymae that's so cute, haha! I would have a membership in a second if we lived there!! @juliablessing we had so much fun and it's so close! 6d
