    Yes! Exactly.
  2. Whole30 Ketchup Recipe

    Thank you so much for this perspective. I was coming up with blanks every time I tried to reason the date comment. I appreciate your thoughtful response!
  3. Whole30 Ketchup Recipe

    I realize that. I've done many rounds of Whole30. I don't eat sugar or other sweeteners as a general rule & have gone without ketchup since my first round in 2013. However, the results of this recipe were very runny tomato-flavored vinegar. No other recipe I've found calls for more than a few Tbs, so I wanted to check & see if it was correct. Also, even here in the forum & in bloggers & sites that are Whole30 affiliates, many "Whole30" ketchup recipes include 1/4-1/2 cup of dates, which per the book, is not in the spirit of the program. I was just curious as to why that would be ok. I'm a moderator on a very large Whole30 group, and when we tell them these recipes really aren't in the spirit of the program, as the book says, they then say they got it from this forum or a Whole30 endorsed source. It causes a lot of confusion.
  4. Whole30 Ketchup Recipe

    Speaking of typos... "fkavir?!" Um..."flavor"
  5. I have searched the forum & have not found an answer to this question. I also sent messages to Whole30 a while back, but haven't received a response. Hopefully someone here can advise me... I have been trying to make the Whole30 Ketchup recipe from the Whole30 book, The 30 Day Guide to Total Health and Food Freedom. It is as follows: 1 cup tomato paste 1/2 cup apple cider 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar 1 teaspoon garlic powder 1/2 teaspoon salt 1/8 teaspoon ground cloves (optional) I made it as suggested twice. But the vinegar was SO overwhelming that's all we could taste & it was very runny. I had to add two more cans of tomato paste & more cider to balance it, and even then it was a strong vinegar flavor, but in a good way. Is the 1/2 cup a typo?? Also, it says "We could use date paste to make our sugary, but that's not really in line with the spirit of the Whole30. This ketchup will have more of a lighter vinegar flavor, different but still delicious on eggs, burgers, and baked potato "fries." The "lighter vinegar flavor" sounds like the 1/2 cup might be incorrect. Every other recipe I find has,a max of 4 Tbs to 1 cup tomato paste. ALSO... the dates. Every other recipe I come across fir Whole30 ketchup calls for dates, even here on the forum. I'm confused by the contrasting statement in the book & the sweet recipes I keep sing posted by Whole30 partners calling sweetened ketchup Whole30. Some call for a whopping 1/3-1/2 cup of dates! Any clarification is appreciated. Thanks!
  6. Confused, moderators please help...

    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!
  7. 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!
  8. Frozen green plantain tostones?

    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.
  9. Frozen green plantain tostones?

    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!
  10. 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?
  11. Sticky Wings recipe?

    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!
  12. Sticky Wings recipe?

    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.
  13. Cashew Cream Veggie Lasaga?

    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.
  14. Cashew Cream Veggie Lasaga?

    @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.
  15. Cashew Cream Veggie Lasaga?

    No, this is similar to a cashew cream recipe in the Whole30 book. It's the application. Recreating a creamy, cheesy lasagna.
