  • Whole 30 No Primalizing/Paleo-Fying

    Just wanting to know where to draw the line on the W30 no paleo-fying rule. Cooking up some scallops for dinner tonight when it occurred to me that they'd make a fantastic clam chowder-ish soup, but then I was afraid that using coconut milk for broth with some other ingredients would fall on the primalizing/paleo-fying unhealthy foods. Same for baked coconut milk custard (like the recipe in Mark's PB cookbook).
    Just wondering exactly what's okay and what's not

    Are you maybe overthinking this? You've asked several questions about it already. I think it's the spirit of the whole 30, rather than the whole 30 itself. I don't think I"m healthier without butter, but knowing that I can go without it really strengthened my resolve and helped me overcome some food issues. If you want to make chowder, make chowder! That seems fine. Was chowder a binge food for you before? Exactly.

      I think the coconut milk chowder sounds fine--you see a lot of coconut milk soups out there anyhow, so it doesn't seem like a paleo-fying thing. The custard sounds like a no-go though.

        Yes, I am definitely overthinking it, but I want to do it right. I don't want to feel bad if I screw up. If one is going to do something, they should give it their all.

          I think the no paleo-fying applies mostly to desserts/sweet things, or things that are meant to emulate grain dishes. scallops in a clam chowder-like soup sounds fine to me too.

            Okay, good. I love seafood. The custard will have to wait til May. It makes a really yummy hot breakfast.

            Thanks for your input! Need to set boundaries for myself here.

              Seafood chowder is my ultimate fave food, and no it's not a primalized food. It's a nourishing fatty awesome meal!!!

              I agree that if you stay away from playing Betty Grokker you'll be fine! <3 You're gonna do great Dr. Bork Bork, soon we'll be talking about your primal pregnancy cravings!

                I just need to stay out of the kitchen, LOL. Some days I feel like Remy from Ratatouille when he starts getting super excited about food & all the endless combinations and limitless possibilities!

                The scallops I got today were from Target. Wild caught, wildly delicious. Wild price
                $12/bag for 15 scallops per bag. Night and day difference between them and the ones we buy at Walmart. Hubby said no more $24 scallop binges. Will have to save it for another paycheck this month or wait for an epic sale.
