Not low key tonight. We are having crab hand rolls from the first nomnom paleo cookbook. Not low key because I have a pound of picked crab meat. I had to time the ripening of the avocado with the development of the sprouts, which took take about 4-5 days to be done. So a highly planned and expensive, but delicious looking meal.
My low key go to meals are things like a salad, roasted veggies, and a meat. The cracklin chicken on the nomnom paleo website is absolutely delicious for having just chicken, oil, and salt (and a cast iron skillet).
Question about the gluten reintro -- the guide says to have whole wheat bread for lunch then whole wheat pasta for dinner -- is there a reason for the whole wheat? I'm unlikely to ever eat whole wheat pasta unless forced to . Regular pasta is more likely to make a reappearance in my diet down the road (not at home, but I do have a favorite restaurant that makes their pasta fresh).
Those are just suggestions. The best thing to do is introduce something you might actually want to eat again though be careful that there are no cross contaminating ingredients. I did sourdough bread for mine because that was what I was interested in.
Just a quick change of protocol related to your Whole30 logs.
First, please note these logs are only available to members of the forum who are currently logged in. General browsers of the internet and those searching for Whole30 information on Google will NOT be able to view your log unless they register and validate their registration for the forum. This is for your privacy, so you don't have to worry about non-members browsing through your personal information. This has been our policy since the forums were created several years ago--we just wanted to highlight this for you.
Two, these logs will no longer be moderated by the Whole30 team. They are your personal "diaries," and as such deserve the respect to remain your own form of expression, within our general guidelines. (Verbal abuse, profanity, or any sort of disrespectful conduct is never tolerated on the boards, regardless of where it is posted.) We will only comment when asked, or if we feel that significantly unhealthy or dangerous behaviors are taking place.
Three, if you choose to post non-Whole30 meals as part of your log, or go off-plan on purpose, we gently encourage you to make this clear in your log. This will help avoid confusion on the part of those new to the program. This isn't mandatory, but we are asking you to help us keep the boards clear and easy to use for all, especially those new to the Whole30.
Finally, for all browsing these logs, know that you have no guarantee that every meal or food posted here is, in fact, Whole30 compliant. Read these logs like you read your labels, and when in doubt, ask/search/read to determine whether something posted in a personal log does, in fact, fit the Whole30 program.
Thank you for doing your part to keep this forum supportive, respectful, and in line with the spirit, intention, and guidelines of our Whole30 program.
