So the older girls went to a party with typical party food, chips, pizza, candy, soda, etc… They brought veggies & Sweet Potato Chips to share. They also age right before they left. I guess seeing and smelling the pizza was the worst. But other than that they said they kept busy, didn’t hangout by the food and it was all good. Also, the host of the party made them smoothies with coconut milk… how considerate is that!?!

- Always bring snacks! It’s inevitable that you are going to be in a situation that you are tempted. If you have a healthy choice with you it is easier to say “no.”
- Surround your self with friends that support you and the healthier choices that you are trying to make. If possible, have friends join you on your journey. We have a family that is doing the Whole30 with us! (Thank you Coady Family!! You are a blessing to us!) Even if we never cook or eat a meal together this month, it helps me to know that they are making the same hard choices that we are. We share favorite recipes and the ones that flop. Even my kids got to go to the party with a friend to support them and make the same choices that they had to.
Do you think it gets easier to be surrounded by food that you can’t have or is it always a struggle?
