RE: What was your “Easy Transition?”

In our first kickstart, having the whole family (me, hubby, 13 yr old son) on board was really helpful - especially since hubby is the household chef. If he wasn't willing to try it, it probably wouldn't have happened. Also, knowing that it was "only" 21 days and we could go back if we wanted to, and for that matter, we could hold onto whatever we wanted to (since no one would know unless we said something about it - and in that first kickstart, on the "day x" threads, I'd still include my one Greek style yogurt as a snack). From there, adding new recipe ideas was important, learning to DIY with known ingredients (swapping out grains, adding new veggies, etc) so that we could have variety and comfort foods at the same time.
