These 30 quick Whole30 recipes are full of flavor but low on time spent in the kitchen! Some of my favorite Whole30 dinner recipes, you’ll love each of these for their simplicity and deliciousness. Yep, these quick Whole30 recipes might just save your round…
Quick, let’s play a word-association game. I say Whole30, and you say the first thing that comes to mind…
Did you say sweet potatoes? Bacon? Avocados? DUMP RANCH?
Or how about spending-hours-and-hours-each-night-in-the-kitchen?
It’s true: the Whole30 requires you to eschew many additives, preservatives, all sugar, soy, and most vegetable oils for 30 days. And when you’re on one, you realize just how much sugar is in every damn thing ever, right? I remember on day 4 of my first round realizing that the bottled ground ginger I’d used in Nom Nom Paleo’s turkey curry bites with apricot-ginger sauce has fructose in it. I was a bit devastated, considering starting over, and realized that would make me punch someone, so I moved on.
But still… in general, you’ve got to cook most of your food. Unless, of course, you’re smart and order from Territory Foods (seriously, they deliver fresh Whole30-compliant meals to your door!). Otherwise? Well, just consider it a great time to catch up on all of those podcasts…
Until now! I’m sharing # of my favorite quick Whole30 recipes with you, so you can spend less time in the kitchen and more time out there enjoying that tiger blood. Each of these recipes takes at or under 30 minutes to make, so you’ve got a real food dinner on the table in less than the time it takes to get your toddler dressed and out there door.
Seriously, Leo, I’m still waiting.
