This protein-rich skillet breakfast is both fast enough for weekday mornings and hearty enough for houseguests. Here, we used plain turkey sausages, but go ahead and toss in your favorite variety, such as Italian or breakfast-style.
Treat yourself to this smoothie version of sweet potato pie whipped together with frozen mango and topped with pecan-studded baked granola.
This breakfast take on a Greek favorite skips the heavy pastry and gives you a good dose of greens, along with heaps of feta and creamy ricotta for a satisfying start to the day. Make it ahead of time and simply warm it through in the toaster oven in the morning.
Any morning is glorious when this loaf is ready and waiting. It’s grain-free and packed with good-for-you ingredients, but the coconut butter glaze almost takes this breakfast into dessert. Remember to use coconut butter, not coconut oil, for the glaze.
Pinto beans lend body while also adding a dose of satiating protein and fiber to this spicy soup. Adapt the toppings to your taste — we love it with tangy pickled onions (see recipe below), but they are completely optional. Avocado, cilantro, jalapeños and radishes all make great toppers as well.
Muhammara, a Syrian roasted red pepper dip, is the perfect stand-in for hummus lovers and is the star of this warm mezze brunch board. A plethora of colors, flavors and textures, this mezze board is a perfect dish for entertaining your Whole30-embarking buddies.
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.
