    GlennR got a reaction from RandiW in 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.

    Here's a recipe for spaghetti squash pancit (when you have to feed a lot of people good veggies).

    It's been a while, but here's a new recipe: a Whole30 compliant kare kare, or oxtail stew. Delicious! (if I may say so myself).

    Bet you've never heard of this one: banana sauce (or banana catsup).

    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.

    Glenn, your food looks delicious. And it would be just the way to add variety to meal planning.    I also stumbled upon this Paleo food blog. The blogger seems to be Filipino too (and gorgeous), and she's done the Whole 30 twice. Check it out at http://pfflifestyle.com/blog.html.  Her ginataan is made with chia seeds to stand in for the tapioca pearls! Anyway, keep posting your great ideas.

    These dishes look wonderful!  I grew up in Japan, on a navy base, so of course I grew up on Filipino food.  I miss it greatly, and Denver has almost NO Filipino food presence.  
     
    I just want some lumpia and pancit.  That's all.

    I'm an egg eater, so it's very rare for me to have eggless breakfasts. But here are a couple from the past:
     

     
    Slow cooked beef stew with butternut squash, kale, and onions
     
     

     
    Chicken sausage with kabocha squash and apples

    Went to the farmer's market and bought (from the seller of grass-fed/pastured meats): 8 lbs. of pork butt for future slow-cooker kalua pig, 3.5 lbs of beef shanks and 1.5 lbs of oxtail for a Filipino lunch dish I'll be making next week for family, and 2 lbs. of ground pork for whatever (sausages, meatballs, omelets -- haven't decided yet). I tend to buy a lot, then eat my way through my freezer.

    I haven't had to deal with too many (or any) crazy things. But reading through this forum, it occurred to me that TMI may sometimes be your best response.
     
    For example: "If I eat that, my poo turns green and syrupy."
     
    Let them respond to that!
