Anyone else doing the Whole30? For a few weeks now my husband and I have been doing the Whole30 in hopes or resetting and cleaning up our eating after a crazy end to the year. While it has meant a few more trips to the grocery and a bit more thorough meal planning, my gut health has never felt better and my husband has started loosing weight and is on his way to his goal. While we're working on cleaner meals for everyone in the house, the kids obviously aren't following the restrictions of Whole30. I've been looking for dinner options that work for everyone; here's some recipes that have been a hit in our house so far.
Slow Cooker Beef & Pepper Soup - Recipe from Paleo Leap
Chicken Salad with Bacon & Scallions - Recipe from The Paleo Running Mamma
A great options for kids is to put this chicken salad in wraps or pita pockets, and mine liked the addition of some cheese.
Sheet Pan Steak Fajitas - Recipe from No. 2 Pencil
Note with this one the kids had the tortillas and we ate the peppers/onions and steak which was plenty.
Instant Pot Whole "Rotisserie" Chicken - Recipe from A Pinch of Healthy
With the Whole30 I found having chicken on hand key - this is a tasty and easy recipe. I served it with a big batch of roasted vegetables.
Pulled Pork Stuffed Sweet Potatoes - Recipe from Paleo Leap
Cauliflower Beef Fried Rice - Recipe from Against All Grain
If you have Whole30/Paleo family favorites, I'd love to hear about them! Also note that when time is running low on time we've been eating a lot of burgers, chicken sausage with peppers and onions and eggs - keeping them on hand at all times is key. I'll continue to update you as we make our way through the month. I'm trying this recipe tonight. Thanks as always for stopping by!
