I am so excited to be sharing a few of my favorite Whole30 recipes! If you see the words “Whole30” and your initial reaction is to keep scrolling, I would love to challenge your perspective. I promise these recipes are sure to please, and you certainly don’t have to do Whole30 to enjoy them! I love Whole30 because of the health benefits that come with ridding your body for 30 days of all the processed food, sugar and other not-so-nutrient-packed foods we consume on a daily basis. But I really love Whole30 because it forces me to find or create recipes that are just as tasty using healthier and more wholesome ingredients!
Today, I am sharing my three favorite Whole30 recipes perfect for breakfast, lunch and dinner, all of which are easy (under 30 minutes of prep time, can I get an amen?!), affordable (no weird ingredients you can’t find at an ordinary grocery store) and delicious! For breakfast, this Whole30 breakfast casserole is super filling, and we often make it when hosting friends for brunch. Spoiler: they can never tell it is Whole30-compliant! For lunch, enjoy my easy tuna or chicken salad recipe! This is great to make and then enjoy throughout the week! Lastly, one of my all-time favorite recipes on my blog, Whole30 White Chicken Chili. It is the perfect blend of a little spice and a lot of flavor. Enjoy!
