If you’ve been following our journey on Instagram, you’ve seen these pictures. This post compiles all our recipes and gives you an entire week of Whole 30 meals- breakfast, lunch and dinner! These meal ideas complete our second week of January Whole 30.
Starting Whole 30 can be overwhelming because it forces you to change a lot of your regular menu routine. For that reason, we complied our meals for an entire week to give you a quick reference and plenty of meal inspiration. Leave us any questions you may have in the comments or if you have a Whole 30 recipe you’d like us to try, we’d love to!

Two Egg Omelette with Broccoli, Cherry Tomatoes, and Ham
Broccoli has become one of my favourite breakfast veggies because it is so filling.
Zoodles, topped with chicken, roasted cherry tomatoes, and a lemon garlic parsley sauce
I found this recipe on Pinterest, its quick to make and so filling. You can check it out here.
Chicken Tikka Masala over Cauliflower Rice
This Chicken Tikka Masala dish is probably the least pretty one I have made lately but it is also the tastiest. If you like Indian food you have to make this! I am going to be making this recipe from now on.
The recipe is from the book “Against All Grain – Simple Dishes” and the only change I made was to add coconut milk instead of Cashew Milk. Bonus, I just threw all the ingredients in the slow cooker. I served the Chicken Tikka Masala over cauliflower rice.
Here’s the recipe:
2.5 lbs of Chicken thighs, chopped into 1-2 inch pieces
2 cups of crushed tomatoes
2.5 Tbsp of Garam Masala
1 tsp of ginger powder
2 tsp of salt
1/2 tsp of paprika
1/4 tsp of cayenne
1/2 yellow onion, chopped
2 gloves of garlic, minced
1/2 cup of coconut milk
Chopped cilantro for garnish
Mix first 8 ingredients in the slow cooker and cook on low for 6 hours.
Stir in coconut milk before serving and garnish with cilantro.
Ham and Egg cups, strawberries, avocado, and carrots
Have you tried baked egg cups yet? They are so easy and you can make a bunch and throw them in the freezer for busy mornings.
- Sliced Ham or Bacon
- Salt and Pepper
- 1. Heat the oven to 400 degrees.
- 2. Grease muffin tins
- 3. Place a slice of ham or a partially cooked piece of bacon in each muffin tin
- 4. Crack an egg into each muffin tin
- 5. Sprinkle with chives and salt and pepper
- 6. Bake for 10-15 minutes
Tuna mixed with salsa, chives, and cilantro on top of sweet potato “toast”, with half an avocado.
This pregnancy, tuna has been a huge craving for me and I usually have it on toast so I thought I would give sweet potato “toast” a try.
Sweet potato toast is a game changer, it’s quick and more flavourful than bread. You could use all sorts of different toppings!
To make just slice a raw sweet potato into 1/4 inch slices and put into the toaster on the longest setting. I toasted mine 4 times and it came out perfect – cooked all the way through and toasted on the outside!
If you cut your sweet potato too thick, pierce it with a fork and microwave it for a minute to help soften the middle before toasting.
Jamaican Shrimp and Cabbage
I used the 7 veggie salad mixture you can get at Costco (I think it’s called Sweet Kale mix) and it was awesome. Next time I might try it with chicken or sausage instead of shrimp.
Check out the recipe here.
Soft poached eggs, bacon, and tomato stacked on top of sweet potato toasts.
Baked Cod with Tomato and Herb Butter on Cauliflower Rice
I followed this recipe and just replaced the butter with Ghee. It is delicious and makes great leftovers!
Steak and Cauliflower Mash
This is a simple dinner of grilled Sirloin steak with Montreal steak spice on top of garlic cauliflower mash with carrots on the side. Cauliflower Mash is amazing – just boil chopped cauliflower for 12-15 minutes, drain, and puree with an immersion blender. Then add a little almond milk, ghee, salt, pepper, garlic powder, and chives and you have delicious faux mashed potatoes.
Breakfast Bowl with Butternut Squash, Broccoli, Ham and Pico De Gallo
This dish comes together so quickly. I used frozen chopped butternut squash and saute it with ham, and broccoli. Add a couple of tsp of garlic powder and half a tsp of cumin and paprika – yum! Then top it with a perfectly sunny side up egg and some quick Pico de Gallo (just mix chopped tomato, cilantro, and a little onion with lime juice). Mmm this is good, this is one of my hubby’s favourite Breakfasts too!
When you are cooking so many delicious meals from whole unprocessed foods you have to utilize your leftovers. Sliced sirloin steak on a spinach and arugula salad with strawberries, pumpkin seeds, snap peas is a delicious and fresh way to enjoy leftovers from last nights steak dinner. I tossed it all with a simple dressing made from cranberry pear vinegar, extra virgin olive oil, and salt and pepper.
Unrolled Cabbage Roll Soup with Cauliflower Rice
I made a huge pot of this delicious soup and I’m planning to freeze a bunch of it for Whole 30 meal emergencies. I actually prefer this soup to regular cabbage rolls. The only change I made to the recipe was to add diced tomatoes because I love chunks of tomatoes.
Check out the recipe here.
Leftover Crustless Quiche
I used roasted vegetables and chicken from our dinner the night before and poured 7 eggs over everything and seasoned with fresh rosemary. This was our 5th snow day and I was seriously running out of fresh produce! This still turned out great and that’s why I love making these– They work with whatever veggies and protein you happen to have on hand. I baked this at 400 for 35-40 minutes
Salmon Lettuce Boats
I know this may not seem like a very exciting lunch but It truly is one of my favorites and I will be eating it long after this Whole30 is over. This meal is fast, fresh and nutritious. I mixed my canned salmon with our Whole30 Mayo, green onions, celery and pepper.
Grilled Steak With Roasted Potatoes and Salad
After I finished this meal I realized my children love steak. I grilled this on a frying pan because with 4 feet of snow and temps around 10F it is no time to start up the BBQ. I used ghee instead of butter and seasoned the steak with simply garlic, salt and pepper. My 2 year old ate almost half of the piece you see here. For salad dressing I mixed balsamic vinegar with olive oil.
This was amazing (breakfast sausage, bacon, bell peppers and sweet potatoes!!) For complete recipe click here
Roast Chicken and Avocado Salad
For the dressing I used the Whole30 mayo mixed with cilantro and a squeeze of lime.
Roast Beef with Winter Root Vegetables
For the vegetables I used baby potatoes, butternut squash, yams, and parsnips. This was a crowd pleaser.
There is nothing to call this breakfast except perhaps the fastest meal I’ve ever made. I had two children to corral into an 8am dentist appointment while battling snowy roads. Adells chicken apple sausage with scrambled eggs and some raw veggies did the trick.
Steak Stir Fry
This lunch used the left overs from our steak dinner the night before and mixed with some veggies made an awesome lunch for two. I seasoned it with fresh ginger, garlic and coconut aminos.
