Whole30® Recipe Roundup

Eating well means different things to different people, but I think we can agree that it should always taste good. The recipes that follow happen to be aligned with Whole30® eating guidelines—but more importantly, they’re all meals and snacks I would eat anytime. If you’re planning your first Whole30 or you’re new to the Primal or keto styles of eating, the recipes below offer a variety of easy, flavorful options for you and your family. No sacrifices necessary.

Whole30 Breakfast Recipes

Curried Pork Frittata

This curried pork frittata is a high-protein and high-fat meal that’s perfect for brunch or dinner. It’s a frittata, basically, with added flavor from coconut milk, ground pork, curry powder, and fresh arugula. The texture is light and airy, and the flavor is rich and buttery.

Servings: 4–6
Time: 55 minutes

Whole30-Approved Breakfast Sausage

Finding breakfast sausage without sugar and other additives is not the easiest task. Thankfully, with a few simple spices, making your own Whole30 homemade breakfast sausage for skillets, egg bakes, or sausage patties is really easy! This simple but tasty recipe from our dear friend Paleo Bailey [2] at the Whole Kitchen Sink [3] proves that you can make your own breakfast sausage in 30 minutes with minimal ingredients.

Spanish Fried Egg

Need something to accompany that Whole30 breakfast sausage? Why, a fried egg, of course. While this crispy-edged egg can stand alone, it’s also wonderful with a side of homemade sausage or as a topper for a kale salad, zoodles, or sweet potato toast.

Keto and Whole30 Collagen Cacao Smoothie

One of the quickest and easiest ways to ensure you’re getting the nutrition you need is to make smoothies. Easily digestible and simple to make, this recipe takes the guesswork out of pre- and post-workout meals as well as breakfast. This smoothie has a slight chocolate almond flavor and is packed with healthy fats. It’s important to note that drinking a meal isn’t recommended by Whole30 [6], and fruit-filled smoothies are a no-no. That said, this recipe doesn’t contain sugar-filled fruit (except as an optional topping), so you can decide whether you might want to switch up an eggs-and-sausage breakfast routine with this or not.

Whole30 Lunch Recipes

Grilled Chicken Salad

Throw this Whole30 approved, keto-friendly, high-nutrient salad together in less than 10 minutes. If you plan to take it to work or to use as a make-ahead dinner, try stacking it in a large mason jar: Place the greens on the bottom, followed by the chicken, carrots, cucumbers, tomatoes, bacon, and seeds, and seasonings. Right before you’re ready to eat, shake onto a plate or salad bowl, top with sliced avocado, and drizzle on Primal Kitchen® Dreamy Italian Dressing [9].

Turkey Pineapple Burgers in Lettuce Wraps

A lighter, slightly tropical take on the classic burger, this pineapple-topped turkey burger is flavored with coconut aminos and chili pepper flakes. It’s reminiscent of a Hawaiian-style burger topped with teriyaki sauce, but Whole30 Chef Sarah Steffens gave the classic recipe a healthy makeover so you get a similar flavor profile without any added sweeteners or soy.

*Applegate Organics turkey burgers are Whole30 compliant, but, of course, you can make your own turkey burgers from ground turkey and whatever Whole30 seasonings you like.

Avocado Chicken Salad

Don’t get us wrong—we adore our Primal Kitchen Mayo [13] made with avocado oil—but, sometimes it’s nice to switch things up with a chicken salad recipe that gets its healthy fat and flavor from mashed avocado. Our friend Dani Spies at Clean & Delicious [15] whipped up this easy eight-ingredient chicken salad that can be piled onto butter lettuce leaves, packed with zucchini or carrot chips for a workweek lunch, or served in cucumber boats (spoon out the seeds to make room for the chicken salad).

Spinach Deviled Eggs

If you love (and miss!) spinach-artichoke dip but want a keto-friendly, Whole30-approved option, these deviled eggs provide an out-of-the-box option that can be enjoyed without remorse. There’s no cheese in sight in this recipe, but it still has all of the creamy, rich flavor of the original dip. The egg whites provide an easy-to-hold package for delivering the flavorful filling, making this recipe perfect for a lunch to go. Pair with a simple green salad, some carrot and celery sticks, and a handful of olives or raw almonds for a tasty moveable feast.
