    Filipino Whole30 Eats

    Ever since completing my first Whole 30 about a month ago, I've been noodling with the idea of hacking dishes from my food tradition to make them Whole30 compliant. And I've decided to do it! So for the month of June, I'll be trying out various Whole30 Filipino recipes and sharing them in my blog. Come visit! And maybe try some of the recipes for yourself. I started today with mango pork tocino. It didn't suck, if I may say so myself. I'll be posting links to new recipes in this topic as I add them to my blog.

    Which alcohol to try with re-intro

    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.)

    Your 2 Favorite/most used Condiments?

    Mango avocado salsa (recipe from Nomnom). Simple balsamic dressing (EVOO, balsamic vinegar, salt and pepper).

    Cauliflower Tortillas

    Ooh, here's what we should call it: a veggie fritter.

    Cauliflower Tortillas

    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.

    Crazy Person's Whole30

    "Beef shin"? That's not a typo? Is that like beef shanks?

    Help! Need recipes using lots of onions

    Oh, and also NomNom's slow cooker chicken with gravy. Bonus: you get a lot of leftover gravy.

    Help! Need recipes using lots of onions

    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.)

    Can I have Tucupi and tapioca?

    *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.

    Can I have Tucupi and tapioca?

    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?
  12. 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.

    Salsa and sardines

    For a moment there I thought this was a new and offbeat -- but intriguing -- recipe.

    New Lara Bars

    How I imagine the thought process usually goes: "Mmm. Larabars. Better get a bunch in case I have a food emergency." Later: "Oh, no! A food emergency! Good thing I bought those larabars!"

    Tuna without soy?

    Actually, the best way to find stuff is to Google "Whole30 + topic." Good luck with the next 27 days.

    Enchilada Casserole

    Made a baking pan of this last weekend. Almost done eating it. Not bad!

    So tired - need positivity

    Rest, sleep. If even light exercise is wearing you out, ease back. You're already eating much better than before. This is an opportunity to also really pay attention to your body and minister to it as necessary.

    Spaghetti meat seasoning blend?

    Spaghetti seasoning is very basic for me: dried oregano, salt (preferably garlic salt, but sea salt otherwise), pepper, and a bay leaf. Mixed in with ground beef, diced green bell pepper, diced onions, tons of sliced mushrooms, and tomato sauce -- maybe with Italian sausage or meatballs. Nothing else is really needed.

    Gonna try this.

    Legit general question re Whole30

    That's another layer of complexity in the elimination process which you may or may not include in your first Whole30. It was only after my first Whole30 that I zeroed in on how some nightshades (peppers, especially) caused skin rashes and itchiness for me. They're technically Whole30 compliant, but they did not apparently, agree with me -- and so I avoid them now. It's up to you how restrictive you want to be. The experiment will be as unique as you are.
  21. Oh, yeah, you totally messed up. If you continue for another 30 days, this time without the bacon, imagine how much more you can fail!

    Basic Whole 30 gravy: meat drippings, stock, tapioca flour. Proportions can vary (experiment). Simmer till reduced.

    Breakfast Hack

    You can try silicone muffin pans. They're nonstick and much easier to clean.
