amen...i always love your posts, paleobird..
i do miss & crave fruit, but i stay away from it..same with wine, but i DO plan on adding wine back in maybe once a week or so after my whole 30, simply bc im tired of being the only sober person when we go places & wine is by far one of my all time favorite things..ever..life is just over all better with it & i'm tired of being without.. i guess i figure even though the wine probably isnt as good for me as the fruit would be, i know i'll enjoy it more..& one of my main goals for 2013 is to quit trying to be so perfect (diet & body image wise) & be happy with how far i've come & how much healthier i am now. in a way i'm lucky bc i dont care of many squashs other than spaghetti squash or starches, & i cant stand sweet potatos. i get tired of defending myself & "my ways" too...almost as tired as i am of letting this whole "way of living" take over my whole freaking life. i've been low carb/primal for almost 3 years & i'm to the point where its not a diet or something that i should have to explain or justify..its what i like to eat, & i continue to do it bc it makes me feel good.
