  1. Thank you so mch for your reply & the information. You supported our stance on these kinds of recipes & blogs claiming their creations to be "Whole30." I will pass this along to our other moderators & the group!
  2. This great blog post was shared on the Whole30 Facebook page yesterday. However, I have questions & can't seem to get an answer there, not to mention my FB App is acting funky again. This is the blog posted for breakfast ideas on Whole30: However, as part of that post, these recipes are included as Whole30 breakfasts, which I thought we not compliant meals, according to the website & moderators on this forum. I'm a moderator on a very large Whole30 FB group, and we try to be as up to date & accurate as possible with our information. We have always maintained that recipes like this are SWYPO & not compliant according to the template. Can you please clarify for me, as I know I'm not the only one confused by this, since it was posted by the official Whole30 FB folks. Thank you!
  3. Thank you! Yes! Totally! That's how it's supposed to be done. I am a moderator for a FB Whole30 group, and this was posted as a suggestion. I was trying to get some info for our members.
  4. Thank you so much for your help! I totally missed that they were already fried once! That answers my question right there. I appreciate your attention to detail!
  5. Doing some research for a group I moderate. Someone posted these and I'VE never seen them before. They are Chiquita brand. Ingredients are sliced green plantains & palm oil. Ready to prepare at home. Of couse, they are saying they aren't chips, so they're fine. Looks like a new gray area to me. Technically ok, but... Then again, foljs,are buying pre prepped/spiralized veggies, sweet potatoes cut into fries, etc. What do y'all think?
  6. Thank you @SugarcubeOD! That is exactly what the other FB group moderators & I thought, too. We just weren't sure how to proceed with an official reply. We appreciate your input!
  7. Checking on this recipe. It's been posted as a Whole30 recipe online & in a FB group I'm in. Is this actually compliant? Sounds like too much fruit juice used in a questionable way to be truly Whole30. Is this another case of personal responsibility, but though technically compliant, not in the spirit of the program? Any guidance would be appreciated.
  8. Thank you, @SugarcubeOD! I will relay this back to the other moderators in our group. I appreciate everyone's input! For the record, I completely sounds pretty disgusting to me, too.
  9. @kirkor. I don't know. I don't have the cookbook, but I'll ask someone who does. I think it's just a recipe for cashew cream. By "they all", I meant those foods/recipes. I agree, though. It's an ownership thing. In our group, we go by the rules. But if something is ok, even if we don't agree with it, it's still ok. That's why we wanted some clarification.
  10. No, this is similar to a cashew cream recipe in the Whole30 book. It's the application. Recreating a creamy, cheesy lasagna.
  11. Thank you @River30 for your reply! You basically reiterated everything we've been saying as moderators. We don't see a difference between this, banana pancakes, sweet potato apple breakfast bake, paleo pizza crust, etc. They all seem to be trying to bend, stretch & break the rules.
  12. I'm a moderator in a rather large Whole30 Facebook support grouo. This recipe is gaining momentum & though to be compliant. I cannot find anything here in the forum to really support that, or deny it. As moderators, we feel it is not ok, certainly not in the spirit of the Whole30. Can a moderator please clarify for us so we can pass along a more official position? "What You Need -1 lb PRE ground beef, 92% lean -2-3 medium zucchini -4 cloves garlic, diced -1 bag spinach or 1 box frozen spinach -1 can tomato sauce -1 can tomato paste -1 container sliced mushrooms (if you like them) -1 large white onion, diced -1 tsp ghee or olive oil -cooking spray -2 TBSP Italian Seasoning, divided -2 cups cashew cream (Make cashew cream by soaking 2 cups of cashews in 4 cups of water overnight. Drain the water in the morning. Put soft cashews into a blender with 2 cups of new water and puree until smooth.)" The rest is basically layering & baking like traditional lasagna.
