Me, too, except that I am a pescetarian! Followed the program pretty much over the weekend, but today is my first official Day 1! I am also including organic yogurt and kefir, edamame, and tofu. I am doing the Whole30 to get healthier and tackle some of my "no brakes" foods like grains, pasta, cheese, sugar, and wine. I am also doing the Certified Specialist of Wine exam in the fall, which is a bit ironic--glad wine is the first non-Whole30 food to be introduced. Aiming for quality over quantity because anything over one glass will make me vulnerable to my "no brakes" foods.

Thanks for the vegan meatball recipe! Looks great and I plan to try it. Last night, I had roasted plum tomatoes, pine nuts, and roasted broccoli with almond flour fettucine. I'm thinking that the almond flour fettucine might have been too SWYPO, but it was still Day 0 . . .  I know the tomatoes are compliant, so will post the link!

My husband is making clean-out-the-fridge stirfry with tofu (no soy sauce or peanut oil) tonight while I watch. ;-)

 

Cheers!

those vegan meatballs need a flavour infusion. if i were to make them again, i'd probably be adding some tahini + tomato paste + maybe lemon juice. i made them without onion/garlic though, so that could have been the problem.

there's almond flour fettucine? yeah, SWYPO for me. i could see myself chowing down on quite a bit - which is what i do with gluten free pasta too.

You are correct, the almond flour fettucine is against the rules.  :) 

On a Whole30, one can use almond flour as "breading" on proteins or veggies, to thicken sauce or stew, or as a binder on meatballs. To use it to make Paleo baked goods or pasta is off-limits.

The veggie burger recipe is here. I am assuming that it is OK for the vegetarian Whole30 option to make a veggie burger out of approved ingredients, but I may be wrong. Planning to sub almond flour for the bread crumbs, coconut aminos for the soy sauce, dry mustard for the Dijon, if mine is not approved.

I started Monday.  Seem there is confusion with the info here: http://whole30.com/2015/06/veg-whole30/

and the vegetarian shopping list around quinoa, tofu etc.

 

Any advice?

Thank you,

LeeAnn

 

where do you see the confusion?

here's how i see it - ultimately, you're offroading from the typical whole30 when you're veg. it's up to you to make the right decisions for you based on your history, what you know are your issues, and your lifestyle. 

here's an interview that you might find useful: http://whole30.com/2014/09/vegetarian-whole30/
