10 Whole30 Holiday Recipes

Delicious Whole30 Thanksgiving and Christmas Recipes.

As the holidays approach, you’re probably already thinking about what to serve for dinner. Maybe you’re not hosting, but you’ve been asked to contribute a dish. Good food is a huge part of celebrating the holidays for me, but I also know that I feel so much better when I avoid certain foods. So this year I’m trying to find a balance of traditional and Whole30 holiday recipes for the holidays.

There are so many delicious Whole30 recipes to choose from. If you’re not familiar with the Whole30, you can read more about my experience here and here. Keep in mind that many of these recipes also fit Paleo guidelines, either as is or with some minor substitutions. read more

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.

An easy & delicious Whole30 compliant meal.


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.

My Husband’s Nuts

In our house, my husband is the official bringer-of-the-bacon and in exchange for my gloriously luxurious life as a stay-at-home-mom (snort), I take care of most of the daily operations. This basically means that I deal with all the really mundane tasks like laundry, dishes and groceries, while also preventing our family from plunging into total chaos and teaching our children to not act like uncivilized barbarians.

When it comes to meals, my husband is pretty easy to please. If it’s relatively tasty, he’s happy. Until recently he hasn’t had much to say about the grocery shopping either. read more

Cauliflower Pizza Crust

If you’re living in Low-Carb Land like me right now, you might be missing certain indulgences like, oh I don’t know, bread in general! But let’s get specific here.

I didn’t have to look very hard because there are a lot of recipes out there for cauliflower pizza crust.

Even if you’re not avoiding carbs, this is a healthier, lower-calorie option packed with veggies. The recipe I used is from Sandy’s Kitchen and can be found here. After making cauliflower pizza a couple times, I now know that the key is making the crust thin so that it has the maximum potential for crispiness. Soggy crust is bad on real pizza and downright unbearable with cauliflower crust so spread it thin, people! read more
