    Hi Candy. Yes, your son is gorgeous.

    Try taking magnesium for the constipation. It's a mineral we're often deficient in anyway. It's been one of the supplements I've been taking for the chronic fatigue. I'm taking it at the lower end of the recommended range, so when I need a laxative, I just add some extra magnesium.

    Hi Judg, I'm already taking magnesium, but I'll try upping the dose and see if that works for me!

    @Sabine: I "riced" the cauliflower! It turned out so yummy I ate too much and was still stuffed at lunchtime today! I did have a peach for breakfast (was going to CrossFit and didn't want to faint ) and a "ChoCoco-Banana" pudding (recipe on my blog) after my workout. Tonight I'm making rainbow trout, I think with chorizo 'cause that just sounds good to me . We'll have a fennel-grapefruit salad with it.
    The recipe for the "No-mac&cheese" is on my blog here: No-Mac and Cheese | Candy in Wonderland.

    I looked at your no-mac and cheese recipe and think I might just have to try that for my kids! They used to love mac and cheese and of course we don't eat it anymore. My mom used to make it all the time when I was growing up (it was a cheap way to fill bellies when there wasn't money!) and I hated it!!! ALways used to ask where the meat was My brothers love the stuff - I'd be happy if I never smelled it again! However, all that to say, I am going to give your recipe a shot ... after our reunion, too much going on before it!

    My mom used to make it with spam!!! it must have been a comfort food of mine growing up b/c it sounds disgustingly appealing right now.

    Too much cauliflower? Is this even a possibility? I had some at lunch too, with a simplified version of the ginger-coconut pork. I do so love cauliflower with blackened butter...

    Don't overdo it with upping the magnesium, and just on a need-to basis. I don't think I have to explain why. LOL!

    As I said in Jenn's journal I've been thinking about schoollunches for my kids (school starts on September 3rd over here). My boys (especially my 12 yo DS2) never really liked 'normal' sandwiches in their lunchbox. So I just ordered Goodbyn Bynto lunchboxes for my boys, DH and myself! You can find them here: Goodbyn US Store.

    I have a pinterest board dedicated to lunchboxes(Lunchbox project => not all paleo/primal, I started this board before going paleo ). I was thinking of adding a paleo waffle (my kids love the frozen waffles from "Eat Like a Dinosaur") or a slice of paleo bread if they wanted something like bread, and a small treat (piece of dark chocolate, homemade primal cookie) for when they finish the veggies and meat. I'm planning on cooking double amounts as of September: DH will join me in a W30, so I want plenty of leftovers for all of us to take to work/school! I'm also making a list of possible breakfast and lunch idea's. I'll probably bake a whole batch of frozen waffles, all kinds of primal muffins (for the kiddo's), egg muffins and meatballs on Sunday for breakfasts Monday through Wednesday (I work those days). Then make another batch on Wednesday for the rest of the week.
    I'm also making a 30-day quick-meal-plan for some people from my CrossFit gym who will also join me in the Whole30 (on their request - they say they're not good cooks and don't have inspiration). Start-date for our Whole30 moved to September 3rd (a Monday) as it turns out we all have social obligations (involving food) on the first weekend of September .

    The one person who would probably benefit a GREAT deal of doing this Whole30 with us won't take the challenge *sigh*. It's DS1. But I can't force him....I can only make sure he sticks to it for dinner at home, as I just won't have any 'non-primal' food in the house and all kids will just eat what we eat (with exception of some white potatoes and maybe a little rice once in a while for the kids). But most of the time he doesn't have breakfast ('cause he always gets up at the last moment) and lunch will be some junk he buys at school (can't MAKE him take a lunchbox and eat it, can I? I can only ask/suggest and even offer to prepare it for him in the evening, so that he just has to take it out of the fridge, but I know he doesn't want to). If we just lead by example, some day he'll come around (I hope)....

    But MOOOOMMM! It's not cool to bring your lunch when you're that age! All the other kids are buying their lunches! He can't be a cool kid if he's busting out a brown paper bag with lunch from Mommy!! lol

    He's a teen... there's no changing them. The best you can do is demand that whatever he eats inside the house meets your approval. Tell him he's not allowed to buy anything and bring it in either b/c it's not fair to the rest of the family. JMO.

    Yeah, that's what I'll do. He went to the doctor yesterday because he had a plaque, like an 'itchy bump' on his head. Turns out to be eczema. Doc prescribed a (probably really expensive) shampoo and lotion...I bet he'll use it twice and then won't bother again. I told him when he came home: IT STARTS WITH FOOD! But no, that's not true *sigh*. I wouldn't mind buying loads of expensive shampoo if 1) I knew this was going to CURE the cause of this stuff and 2) he would really stick to using it in order to cure it. But I know it won't cure the cause AND he won't stick to it. Aaargh, teenagers!!!

    On a positive note: DS3 (our little picky eater) is really excited about my lunchbox plans . I told him I'll be putting a paleo waffle (from Eat like a dinosaur) or sth similar in his lunchbox together with veggies, fruit and meat, and also a little treat (piece of chocolate, homemade primal cookie he loves,...) BUT he has to eat all his fruit and veggies before he can have the treat! And if I notice he didn't eat his fruit/veggies (and I would check with his teacher that he didn't just throw it away) he wouldn't get a treat the next day.
