Hi! I recently saw a recipe for energy balls with ingredients that are all Whole30 compliant, but I'm not sure if this is a dessert replacement. These are the ingredients: 2 cups medjool dates (pits removed); ½ cup roasted almonds; ½ cup almond butter; ½ cup unsweetened shredded coconut, divided; pinch of salt. I thought I would ask since I'm on day 14 and definitely NOT interested in breaking my Whole30 for this. Thanks!
Terrible news - last night after eating a delicious meal of teriyaki meatballs and broccoli on day 8, my husband broke into hives. It seems likely that the medjool dates used as a sweetener in the recipe are the culprit. I’m heartbroken as I was already dreaming of a world after whole 30 where we stayed off sugar indefinitely. Has anyone found alternatives that wound change a recipes taste too much?
DeepBlue02 posted a topic in Food, Drink and CondimentsHi, I'm brand new to Whole30. I'm wondering if using dates and apple cider in cooking is acceptable in small quantities. I wouldn't be using them to satisfy sugar cravings rather as a way to balance flavors. My idea is to use the cider for BBQ sauce and I'd like to experiment with dates as a substitute for Palm sugar (reduced amounts) for Thai recipes.
