This marinated steak uses bold flavors such as ginger and fish sauce. Make the marinade in advance, but only add the steak the same day. The pickled carrots and cucumbers are a great make-ahead side. You can also serve this dish with brown rice.
No need for a bottled sauce — here, you can make a quick, zesty teriyaki using orange juice, ginger and a few pantry staples. The recipe makes enough to coat the fish before roasting with plenty left over for drizzling and dipping at the table. (Tasty tip: Try it on the broccoli!)

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.
