Are you one of the many people following a Whole 30 plan this month? Whole 30 is a short-term nutritional reset, designed to help you cut out the foods that might be having a negative impact on your health, restore a healthy metabolism, heal your digestive tract, and balance your immune system.
Many times people ask if I have recipes that are Whole 30 compliant. But recently, my daughter was asked if she knew of any Whole 30 recipes that aren’t chicken or fish. Not only was her friend finding it hard to cut out certain foods, but also most of the recipes recommended to her were chicken or fish recipes. Above all her friend was getting bored with eating chicken and fish.
So I’ve rounded up nine Whole 30 recipes that aren’t chicken or fish. All these will work for the Whole 30 diet as they have no added sugar, grains, legumes, dairy, alcohol or unnecessary chemicals. Just whole food ingredients and deliciousness your whole family will love (so you won’t have to cook a separate meal for them).
Skip the taco shells and fill your taco bowl with spicy beef, spinach and broccoli sprouts, homemade creamy guacamole, sweet tomatoes, and homemade chunky salsa. If you make homemade, you know what’s in it. 🙂 Recipe here.
When I say you’ve got to try this pot roast, I mean it. It’s ah-mazing. And I’ll give you a little tip. To thicken the gravy a little bit, crush some of the cooked potatoes into the gravy. Yum. Recipe here.
Just prep the meat and veggies and let your slow cooker do its magic. Chili is the perfect Whole 30 meal and don’t forget the sugar-free bacon. 🙂 Recipe here.
Every mouthful explodes with flavor in this quick and easy dish. Serve it over spaghetti squash for a delicious pasta substitute. Sounds like a win-win. Right? Recipe here.
This savory, spice rubbed pork roast with its rich basting sauce is a wonderfully satisfying Whole 30 choice. Recipe here.
Fire up the grill and get ready to dig into the tastiest pork chops topped with zesty chimichurri sauce. Recipe here.
I think you’re going to love these lamb chops that have their own little handle and a nugget of meat to savor with each bite! Chermoula sauce elevates these tasty chops to irresistible. Recipe here.
Skip the Parmesan cheese to keep zoodles with bolognese sauce Whole 30 compliant. You won’t miss the cheese at all with all the flavor going on in this fun dish. Recipe here.
There you have it. I hope you enjoy these nine Whole 30 recipes that aren’t chicken or fish. If you’d like to see all my recipes that comply with Whole 30 click here. They’re all fresh and easy and never boring.
