4 Simple Whole30 Meals

On Tuesday, I shared about my first two weeks doing the Whole30. You can read about it here. Today I thought I’d throw out a few of the simple but delicious meals that I’ve been eating these past 17 DAYS!!

Four simple Whole30-compliant meals that you can whip up in no time.My goal was to keep it simple and to make sure I could quickly prepare foods that I would actually enjoy. There are a ton of great blogs with Whole30 approved recipes, but sometimes it’s nice to just have some go-to meals that you can count on in a pinch.

An easy & delicious Whole30 compliant meal.

GRILLED HAMBURGERS WHOLE30 STYLE

Thank heavens that sweet potatoes are allowed during the Whole30! I’m just sayin’. A quick lettuce-wrapped burger makes life easy, especially because the rest of my family can eat the same meal with buns instead of lettuce and it’s not a ton of extra work. I topped my burger with avocado and pickled red onion and it was delish!

An easy & delicious Whole30 compliant chicken salad.

CHICKEN SALAD WITH HOMEMADE MAYO

Whole30 approved chicken salad is not hard at all, but the trick is to either find Whole30 compliant mayo or make your own! Mel Joulwan, author of the blog and cookbook Well Fed, has a very simple recipe, which I used. There’s a very similar recipe in the Whole30 book itself. Some leftover diced chicken, diced carrots and celery mixed with your mayo of choice and you’re in business.

An easy & delicious Whole30 compliant chili.

SLOW COOKER CHILI

I just made this fantastic chili in the slow cooker this past week and it was a hit with the whole family! The recipe comes from Emily Eats Real Food and uses diced sweet potato instead of beans to make it Whole30 compliant. I used ground turkey instead of beef, and although I was a little sad not to top my bowl with sour cream, the avocado worked great.

Warm chia pudding is an easy & satisfying Whole30 compliant breakfast.

WARM CHIA SEED PUDDING

One of my favorite quick morning meals is warm chia seed pudding with almond butter and sliced bananas. It’s so easy! Grab the recipe here and add whatever compliant toppings blow your skirt up. I’ve developed a deep love for almond butter during my Whole30 experience and the bananas go perfectly. You can jump on Instagram and check out #emilyschiaseeds for more ideas of great combinations.

These are just a few really easy meals that prove how uncomplicated it can be to embark on the Whole30. Even the homemade mayo isn’t as hard as it sounds!
