Sylwia Zygalo Posted May 31, 2013 Share Posted May 31, 2013 I was thinking of making a beef stir-fry but my body is just not craving any type of meat at the moment. I was feeling very nauseaus most of the day and the thought of my leftover dinner for lunch nearly made me hurl. I decided to do little digging and found a recipe for ingredient compliant Paleo pancakes. Now, I have read the manifesto and I understand the dangers of "replicating" your unhealthy meals, but it also says: "For example, the amazing fried chicken in Paleo Comfort Foods is a perfectly appropriate (and delicious) dinner choice while on your Whole30. However, if you're coming off a wicked addiction to KFC, perhaps Jules & Charles' creation isn't the best choice for you during your program. Make sense?" The issue I have is that prior to starting Whole30, I never actually ate or craved pancakes. I might have had them once a year, if that. I actually very rarely ate any type of baked goods like muffins or croissants, etc. I would make an exception if I went to Paris, ("when in Rome"). As I mentioned in my introductory post, 10 years ago I lost 100lbs, not by dieting but by eating whole, nutritious foods and by doing so had re-wired my brain to crave those foods on a regular basis. My main goal with Whole30 is to break my daily red wine habit, and to lose a few lbs or re-shape my body from the last few years of increased drinking and slight slack in diet. Do you think I'm still breaking the rules somehow even if I'm making something like pancakes, without having had an addiction to pancakes or baked goods?
