Squash stands in for rice in this remake of the traditional Spanish dish. You can use butternut squash or yellow squash — we recommend spiralizing the veg first, then cutting or pulsing in the food processor to get rice-size pieces. If using yellow squash, cutting it is a safer bet since the veg is so delicate. Check the labels when you are purchasing chorizo as some brands contain sugar.
You might be skeptical at the thought of rice made from beets (we certainly were), but trust us, it works beautifully. This taco bowl is so satisfying that we’re sure you’re going to keep it on rotation long after your Whole30 journey is over. When purchasing salsa, check that it doesn’t contain added sugar.
This take on burgers ditches the buns in favor of a collard green wrap and subs in baked carrot fries for the traditional fries that are usually cooked in processed oils.
A high-quality bone broth in place of traditional broth not only makes this dish Whole30-compliant, but it also helps boost your immune system, treat leaky gut and improve joint health, thanks to the collagen it contains. This soup tastes even better the next day, so it makes a perfect weekday lunch.
Removing the backbone from the bird (aka spatchcocking) ensures the dark and light meat cooks evenly. Do it yourself with the help of our easy instructions, or have your butcher do it for you. The turkey is marinated with a dry brine of sage, fennel, orange zest and salt for 24 to 48 hours for juicy, flavorful meat, but you can add the rub just before roasting if you’re in a rush.
Infusing pork loin with zesty garlic-sage rub and wrapping it in prosciutto makes for a showstopping entrée that’s super-easy to make.
This savory Greek-style pastry is a great way to incorporate more spinach in your diet. We use a whole-grain phyllo dough brushed with olive oil and feta cheese to add a creamy, salty kick. If you’re sensitive to gluten, see the tip at the bottom of the recipe to easily adapt it. For a prettier presentation, we simply take the phyllo and crumble it over the top of the pie before baking it.
These grain-free waffles use almond flour instead of wheat flour for added protein. Because they’re gluten-free, they work best on a mini waffle iron, but making 4 full-size waffles is an option, too.
