    GlennR got a reaction from CaroHarNord in Day 26 and all hell breaks loose!   
    Huh, I always thought it was a detox thing. If it's not, something is (often) happening. There are just too many posts in these boards about itchiness, rashes, acne, running noses, styes, and other skin and orifice issues to be a coincidence. And it doesn't make sense to me that these are allergic reactions to new foods (nuts, coconut milk), because so many of these accounts describe the symptoms as appearing late in the Whole30, rather than when the new foods were introduced. Something in the Whole30 process itself is making a number of people susceptible to these problems. IMO.

    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.

    Two and half months of almost perfect Whole30-compliant eating (with minor post-W30 offroading listed in this thread), and now I'm having dreams of chocolate? And in the middle of a disaster film/Godzilla sequence to boot! (I'm nibbling on chocolate squares, one after another, while walking along a pier while I and a crowd of townspeople wait warily for Godzilla to emerge from the water.)
     
    Yeah, my brain is weird.

    Here's one recipe I'm really hoping some Whole30ers here will try: guinataang halo-halo. Very simple recipe, and very delicious and filling.
     
    You know how newbies keep saying they're hungry all the time and the mods keep saying eat carbs, eat fat? Well, this dish is basically carb-dense root crops plus carb-dense sweet plantain cooked in glorious, fatty coconut milk. I dare you to have this at breakfast (with your protein, of course) and tell me you're hungry again before noon. Go on, I double dog dare you.

    It's not a fail at all, especially since you caught it and are adjusting. That's the exact opposite of fail.

    Thanks! I haven't posted in a while, and truth to tell, I'm a little more off the path than I'd like (damn that sugar!). But majority of my meals are still template. So I figure I'm still a little ahead of the game.

    GlennR reacted to Juliana Paiva in Can I have Tucupi and tapioca?   
    My opinion is just like yours. I don't eat mexican food and tapioca is far from beeing a tortilla-like food for me, but I didn't eat during my whole30, just because I was triying  something new. Now I finished it, I understand all the proposal behind avoid paleo hacks and, in my opinion, I don't think tapioca would Be a hack. As I said before, is just cultural diferences, the whole 30 community is growing so fast, is reaching people around the world and I think could Be the time To think about these diferences.
