We chose the name “a spoonful of family” because, like Mary Poppins suggested, doing this together will make something unappealing (like drastically changing our diet) go down easier.
The four of us, (middle aged father & mother, 20 something daughter & son) are all coming to Whole30 with different needs and expectations. However, the overall goal for all of us is to lose some weight and to feel better. And on some level, it has also become a competition… no one wants to be the first to cheat!
It remains to be seen if Whole30 will become a permament way of life for all of us, or as I suspect, some of us will adopt more aspects of the program than others. But we are all in this together for now!
