Ahh, thank you for the clarification. Newbie here and I'm just at the beginning of getting familiar with Paleo. Appreciate this.

Porgy, my info was not for you -- I said that several times. I also said that I respect your choice. I posted this because I know that there are some people here who are new to Whole30/Paleo and might be confused by the recipe given the Whole30 program rules. You have every right to follow the program or not follow it as you please. This info, as I stated, was meant for newbies.

Knowledge is half the battle!

I do not believe in being fanatical about any program ... it is lifestyle choices that I make. And, frankly, this is my choice ...

For your information, I do not consider almond pancakes as SWYPO as you put it. I didn't eat pancakes before I became paleo.

So, with that said, I do not want to continue with this thread. I made my choices ... and I live by them. Remember that W30 is a step toward a new way of life, unless you are planning on being on a "diet" for the rest of your life. I for one do not. I also have a family to cook for and I need to make choices for all of us to live healthy.

Lis ... you could have stressed your concerns in private rather than declaring your "views" to the world.

And, it is for that reason that I am leaving this thread.

Ok... So, I was going to leave this alone, but every time I come to this team page and I see a recipe for Almond Flour Pancakes in the Whole30 team posts, it sort of nags at my conscience. Everyone is free to do what they want and whatever works for you works for you, and that's great. I'm not here to tell ANYONE what works for you. Porgy, I read your post about your choice to keep eating the "SWYPOs" and although I think it misses the essential spirit of the program process, I respect YOUR choice.

At the same time, I think that it is good for everyone to have another perspective on this. So, I decided to post this because I think these types of foods are really outside of the realms of the program as it is intended to be and I also think that including these foods (especially as a newby) potentially causes us to miss out on the true benefits of 30 whole days of truly clean, natural, unprocessed, low sugar, no junk food eating.

Here is some information that I found very useful from the official "Can I Have" section of the Whole30 website, which is run by the creators/authors of the program. (Again, this is not intended for those who have already read the book and made their own decisions about how to go forward. It's for the newbies and is a reminder to me myself also.)

Also, check out this blog for even more clarity on the topic:

"Pancakes: No

"Sometimes, we feel like if we have to have one more conversation about pancakes, we might explode. No, you can’t have pancakes. Yes, even if they’re just bananas and eggs. First, they are explicitly ruled out in the Whole30 program guidelines. This should be enough of a reason, but in case you’re still wondering why (they’re just bananas and eggs!)…

"Pancakes in any form do not encourage success with the Whole30 program. Reaching your health goals depends on committing to both the RULES and the SPIRIT AND INTENTION of the program. The Whole30 is designed to change your RELATIONSHIP with food, first and foremost. And the PSYCHOLOGICAL impact of eating pancakes as part of your healthy eating, life-changing plan cannot be ignored.

"Eating eggs, a banana, and some olive oil is not the same as combining those ingredients into a pancake. There are studies that show that how your brain perceives the food influences satiation. This is often cited with liquid food (smoothies or shakes, as we reference in the back of It Starts With Food), but experientially we see this with whole foods as well, depending on how they are combined. Pancakes bring up a totally different psychological response than frying some eggs and eating a banana. And it’s that psychological response that we are trying to target with the program.

"You may not have an affinity for pancakes, but we find that most people who complete our program do best without any of these comfort/trigger/reminiscent-of-the-SAD-stu
ff-you-used-to-eat foods. So, because we need to create one program that applies to as many people as possible, we rule these Paleo recreations out. In our vast experience, this sets everyone up for the best Whole30success possible. And, of course, what you choose to do after your 30 days are up is entirely up to you."

Again, I'm not telling anyone what to eat, or trying to dictate how you carry out your Whole30 program. I'm posting this for people who are new to the program, haven't read as much about it, and may be confused about the inclusion of Pancakes and other "cheat" foods, or SWYPOs being included here.
