  1. Yeah, I'm having the same problem. My next challenge will be to tame -- if not eliminate -- caffeine.
  2. Share the recipe?
  3. Just a reminder: as with any reintroduction, be sure to have the thing you are reintroducing at every meal. (Sample reintro for alcohol: mimosa with breakfast, beer with lunch, wine with dinner.)
  4. Mango avocado salsa (recipe from Nomnom). Simple balsamic dressing (EVOO, balsamic vinegar, salt and pepper).
  5. Ooh, here's what we should call it: a veggie fritter.
  6. Oh, God. This is just cauliflower and eggs. Call it a hash or an omelet or a frittata or an egg fu yung instead and call it a day. I say this is fine.
  7. Yeah, I disagree. A ton load of Whole30 recipes are making compliant those things which aren't -- i.e. recreating them. In this case, chicken nuggets is just chicken.
  8. "Beef shin"? That's not a typo? Is that like beef shanks?
  9. Oh, and also NomNom's slow cooker chicken with gravy. Bonus: you get a lot of leftover gravy.
  10. Bistek Tagalog (Filipino beef steak). Recipe was from before they legalized potatoes, so you can use potatoes now. Maybe also liver and onions? (I hate liver, so I don't have a recipe to share.)
  11. *Shrug.* What this is telling me is that the rules will have to evolve as Whole30 expands further out into the world. Whole30 was formed largely as a response to the Standard American Diet, and some of its rules are therefore parochial to this culture -- but SAD is not the way most of the world eats. So issues like this will keep cropping up the more Whole30 goes international, and the guidelines will have to be more adaptable if Whole30 is to thrive. My $.02.
  12. Okay, this one I don't get. This isn't a faux tortilla that was made compliant. It's its own thing, a traditional food already made of compliant ingredients. There's no danger it will tempt or lead you to something else. It's similar to questions I have about other non-Western foods that Whole30 might disallow -- like the Ethiopian kabalagala, which would probably also be forbidden because it's pancake-like or pastry-like. But this is a traditional food (often made with compliant ingredients) that is not trying to be anything else. Seems to me issues of SWYPO don't apply. Mightn't some allowance be made in such cases?
  13. Creamy soups, such as creamy zucchini soup. Widely adaptable to a lot of other vegetables, such as asparagus, broccoli, carrot, even potatoes. Lots of variations in the interwebs. Recipes with chopped veggies in ground beef (or other meats), such as a beef enchilada bake or pastelons (plantain lasagna) or Whole30 cottage pies or meat loafs, etc. These are meals in themselves. Veggies in frittatas, scrambles, egg bakes, and egg muffins. Tons of compliant recipes out there. Vegetable dips and condiments, such as avocado tzatziki sauce, or salsas or guacamole, etc. Good luck breaking the barrier!
  14. I don't have the Whole30 book. Is this just refrigerating coco milk and skimming off the cream on top? If so, I just toss the water.
  15. Here are some solutions from one Asian cook (I'm from the Philippines). Hope these give you some ideas.
