Menudo or soups - ok to eat "around" items?


Recommended Posts

My friends are making menudo tomorrow, which sound perfect , with the exception of the hominy. Is it ok to eat the menudo if I don't eat the hominy in the same pot/bowl? is there anything else in menudo that is not allowed?

Same question for a vegetable soup that might have potatoes - can you eat around the potatoes or is having them in there where it might blend in with the broth a no no?

I am afraid that eating around the hominy would be a bad idea. And while potatoes are not as potentially troubling as corn, some of it would infuse into the broth too.

Hominy is not simply corn, which is off-plan for a Whole30. It is corn treated with harsh chemicals. In other words, processed food. From About.com:

Definition: Hominy is a food made from kernels of corn which are soaked in an alkali solution of either lime or lye. The corrosive nature of the solution removes the hull and germ of the corn and causes the grain itself to puff up to about twice its normal size.
