    Laura,
    What do you snack on if not nuts? They are my weakness! I know I eat too many nuts!
    -Erin

    Since we started the Whole 30 in August (see http://movingstronglyforward.typepad.com/moving_strongly_forward/2011/08/the-whole-30-begins-today.html) we haven't been hungry for snacks. Nuts were never a problem for our digestion prior to the Whole 30, but they tore us on on the Whole 30 (see http://movingstronglyforward.typepad.com/moving_strongly_forward/2011/09/nuts-in-both-senses-of-the-word-we-havent-eaten-nuts-in-over-a-week-if-you-will-recall-nuts-force-you-to-stay-near-the.html)

    That said, we do still snack on some soaked and dehydrated nuts and use them in recipes, but we really don't crave snacks much at all. If we do, an apple will do the trick, or some jerky. There are also some good recipes in the Every Day Paleo cookbook.

    My kids seem to be hungry for snacks still, even on the Whole 30, but they are only 2 and 4, so I wonder if for their age they just need a little snack in the am and pm--or maybe it's just habit. Laura, is there any way you could keep a log of what you eat for a few days and post it on your blog? If you ever feel motivated to do that, it would be really helpful! Thanks for the great info.

    Hey Erin. I think kids are a bit of a different case when it comes to this. They are thinking hard, growing and very physical - needing and using more energy than adults. That is why rice is back in Colson's diet (and Ryan eats it too just because) - it affected the kid's mood. Your kids may need the extra oomf - maybe make some rice flour and raisin cookies if you need a creative way to get it in and rice isn't a problem for them.
