I'm a social worker. Half of the kids I work with are 11 year old boys who struggle with anger outbursts due to the trauma, sickness, and emotional pain they've had to experience in their lives. I am the one who works with the family and providers to develop a "crisis plan" so everyone knows what to do to be safe and calm when a potential crisis comes up. The one "trigger" on nearly every single little boy's list is "being told 'no'." I feel ya, kid.
Then, in a whirlwind of nothing we ever expected falling into place better than we ever imagined with more peace than we could even understand, God gave us another detour to follow.
I completed my first Whole30 in January this year and Kyle and I have eaten Whole30 or paleo on and off before and after that. In January, I blogged about how that round was going every week. I had several of you ask me for tips and favorite recipes. So here’s my collection of our favorites! About half of them are super easy to make, and they other half aren’t complicated, but are just too yummy not to include! Try them and let me know how you like them!
I'm extra sensitive to nagging - it's like my biggest fear to become a nagging wife, so I lean towards the secret grumbling end of things. The only problem is, that builds up then explodes over something insignificant like a single sock that's been on the living room floor all week. These explosions are not pretty or helpful to anyone.
