"Alternatives" to baking on Whole30? in Cooking Posted November 18 If you were able to still bake but not eat it, maybe you could link up with some charities in your community that would appreciate home baked goods - Safe houses for victims of domestic violence and the like would probably love occasional treats. If having the baking in the house is not something that would work for you, maybe try out some cooking recipes that are more fiddly? Stuff that takes prepping ahead of time, fussy chopping and plating techniques etc? what about researching spice blends and then making your own? That doesn't take long but it's quite rewarding to use your own spice blends in subsequent cooking. Maybe your 'thing' isn't in the kitchen anymore? Drawing, painting, knitting, crochet, reading, writing, photography... maybe there's something else that isn't related to food that your creative skills would be perfect for?
