I made chicken soup for me and my kids tonight! It had onion, garlic, carrots, cauliflower and cabbage. My kids are eating most dinners as Whole30. Lunch definitely isn't but breakfast sometimes is for them. I feel like their veggie consumption has increased over the past two weeks even though they were offered just as many veggies before the Whole30. They just don't fill up on grains!

You can try lettuce wraps with chicken or pork meatballs with veggies and mayo.You can even add boiled egg and mayo with some mustard.

I am sure kids will love assembling it together and eating with hands.
I made this for a party once and it was over before all guests arrived

I was just thinking about finding a way to make spring rolls with a lettuce wrap! We seem to be on the same cooking wavelength.  :lol:


I hadn't thought about using steamed cabbage leaves - sounds brilliant. I usually make spring rolls with carrot, zucchini, tofu, mint, vermicelli noodles and peanut sauce. Loads of non-compliant things there.  :( I like the idea of using cauliflower rice to bulk it up instead of the noodles and tofu. I may even try some chicken. My second favorite dipping sauce is based on hoisin (contains soy) so I'm still struggling to find something for that part. But I'm inspired to give it a shot now!

Yes. Dipping sauces are tough! My husband and I put hot sauce on everything so that has been my go to and then the kids still just use sweet and sour, ketchup, bbq, honey, etc. Please let me know if you come up with any good concoctions. Thanks!

I'm going to make fish and chips with homemade tartar sauce tonight- I'll keep you posted

Have either of you tried Sunshine Sauce yet? It's based on peanut sauce, so that might be a good option. If you can't find a compliant sun butter, you can use almond butter or whatever compliant nut butter you can find. That site also has this Best Stir-Fry Sauce Ever, but I haven't tried it yet -- definitely leave out the honey during Whole30.
