But my family (me, my wife, and our two daughters) does have a family "ritual"/"tradition" of Pancakes on Sunday mornings. We've been eating gluten free pancakes for years, but we do make them with DF Chocolate Chips and we cover them in real maple syrup.
Today is day 30. We have missed our tradition for the last 30 days. And since its a big part of our family, I am eager to get back into the swing of this ritual. This upcoming Sunday is the big day.
My plan is to make paleo pancakes for myself (and a few extra to encourage the rest of the family to try them). I will probably avoid the chocolate chips. But I'd like to reintroduce Maple Syrup.
Here are my questions:
- I don't think I have a big "sugar dragon" -- I didn't see any withdrawal during whole 30... is it likely I'm gonna create one or wake something up from deep down?
- What is the main reason for avoiding maple syrup or honey during Whole 30? Aside from the insuline reaction (which I'm already well tuned into thanks to my endurance training) Are there other inflammatory or anti-nutrient effects of these?
