Batter for Frying plus GF cream cheese wontons

This batter is based off of this recipe (almost exactly it): . This is for my kids, so has a lot of stuff not so good for me, but might be fun for someone trying to figure out something similar.

Whole30 Chicken and Zucchini with Green Chile Sauce

For foods that are, likely, whole30 compliant, I'm pretty much just throwing things together, for the most part. Every once in a while I might have a 365 days of pinterest recipe, though.

For right now, though, so I can remember what works, here is the first one.

Whole30 diet

If you haven't heard of this diet, it's kind of like a modified Paleo, with the theory - as I understand it - to take 30 days to get into a different headspace about food, while eating a bit healthier.

Basically, no grains, no dairy, no sweeteners, no sulfites/msg stuff, and almost no legumes. Meals are based around a meat or egg protein with the rest made up of lots of veggies, a little fruit/nuts/seeds/coconut/avocado.

But without the subs like paleo pancakes and breads, because again, this is supposed to be a mindset thing.

I don't really know how this works for other people, but this is pretty much what I have to eat all the time anyway, when I don't want to react, so I'm trying it for this month to get back to my good diet, and also have some folks who are, for once, eating kind of like I do. :-) Although I suspect I'll have more fats than some. :-)

It's actually helped already, because when I'm tempted to eat things I know I react to, I've been able to tell myself, 'just for the next 30 days, at least.'

I'm looking forward to the company, for now.
