I love these recipes. I am through the 30 days so I often add wine to my dishes. But I still try to follow the healthy recipes
THESE ARE NOT WHOLE30 COMPLIANT.
Would you mind being more specific? I’ve reviewed each and every one these recipes myself and they are all indeed Whole30 compliant, so I’m very curious to know which recipes you have an issue with.
The only thing I could think of is when it calls for “Chicken Stock” or “Lard” in some recipes people would have to know to use Whole30 compliant, but if people are seriously doing Whole30 they should know that. So I have no idea what Anon is complaining about, haters gonna hate I suppose.
I guess so! Thanks, wanted to make sure I’m not insane or anything.
