Whole30 Favorites: What I’ve been eating for Breakfast + Dinner

Hello Hello!

I’ve been having such an awesome time doing Whole30 this month that I thought it would be fun to put together a list of some of my favorite recipes. It’s been so fun to try so many new meals and it’s been great to be back in the kitchen cooking. Most of the meals are from the Whole30 Cookbook {which I highly recommend – it’s awesome!} and I’ve linked a few others I’ve tried from the internet as well!

As I’ve mentioned before, I’m doing a 80/20 version of the Whole30 – cutting out carbs + dairy most days, but when we have events or date nights or birthdays out, I’m enjoying myself. And I’m cool with that! Now, onto the food!

First up – the most important meal of the day – BREAKFAST!

I had to work out a few kinks with how I was starting out my meals each day. Cutting out dairy and carbs first thing in the morning means you have to take a little more time in prepping what’s for breakfast. And after 2 days, I was over the basic scrambled eggs – SO OVER them. But that was a good thing because it forced me to get creative and try new things!

All of these things do take time – in terms of chopping, prepping or even just cooking {like potatoes!} The more planning ahead that goes into the meals, the better – sometimes I prep my breakfast veggies the night before so I’m ready to go! But here are a few of my favorite breakfast meals so far – most of which I’ve had more than once this month because I love them so much!

First up – Diner Breakfast – Eggs, Sausage and Home Fries.

This is the absolute best breakfast in the whole entire world. And no I’m not exaggerating. The sage in the sausage, the sweet potato with the runny egg, it is SO GOOD. My husband has requested this meal each weekend this month, he loves it as much as I do! It’s in the book and its amazing.

Twice Bakes Sweet Potato

This was one of those meals where I woke up, didn’t know what I wanted to make but realized I had some sweet potatoes to move. Toss them in the oven, add in a egg to bake and it was so yummy!

Veggie Packed Breakfast Frittata

Another good one in the book that was delicious! Took a little bit of prep time with all the chopping and what not, but a great weekend breakfast that everyone can enjoy – because it’s definitely big enough for the whole family!

Brussels sprouts, Egg, Bacon + Avocado

This was just a random morning combination as well, but it turned out so good that I had to share. I had Brussels sprouts I needed to use and adding them in a combination with a runny egg, bacon and avocado – it was so yummy and kept me full FOREVER.

Now it’s time to look at what I’ve been making for dinner! The dinners have varied in things I make just for my husband and I or also for the kids to try as well. Some things are a little spicier than others so I keep that in mind if the kids are going to try them too, but my husband, Charles has been having all the dinners with me and he’s been loving them as much as I have!

My favorite dinner – Chimichurri Kebabs

These were in the book, but you can find them online as well. The Chimichurri sauce is outstanding. I can’t say enough good things about it, it’s so delicious! Go make these now!

Grilled Salmon with Avocado Salsa

The seasoning on this salmon plus the avocado salsa makes this meal so fresh, light and tasty. We’ve made this twice so far – whenever I have an avocado that needs to be cooked – and it’s delicious!

Meatballs!

This was an awesome dinner because I made 50 meatballs – from my own recipe – 30 to eat and enjoy over a few days and then 20 to store for later. The kiddos had spaghetti and meatballs {one of their favorite meals} and I just had them by themselves, which is perfectly fine with me! They are delicious any way you enjoy them! I’ll eat meatballs by themselves all day everyday!

Asian Chicken

I need to find the link to this one because it was INCREDIBLE. The sauce on it was insane – like a peanut pad Thai. It might not look pretty, but it was so tasty!

Stuffed Peppers

These are perfection. I’ve made these two or three times and I am committed to having them in the weekly rotation. I cut up the stuffed peppers and use them as a taco shell of sorts and its so filling and good. Now I want to make these again tonight!

Thai Cucumber Cups

ANOTHER WINNER! These were a little tough to make because they were intensive with lots of steps but another great meal. I made them for dinner and they were light and flavorful. Would be awesome for lunch as well!

Chili

It’s easy to make Chili Whole30 Compliant – just take out the beans, no cheese and always add guacamole for that creaminess. Boom.

Spaghetti Squash with Meat Sauce

I made this last night and it was insane. I made my regular meat sauce and added the spaghetti squash and it totally took care of any carb craving. I can’t wait to eat leftovers later. So good!

So those were just a few of my favorite meals so far in my Whole30 journey. I am usually so full from breakfast I don’t eat much lunch – or if I do, its celery with sunflower butter {which is awesome!} I can’t wait to eat and make some more from the amazing recipes!

If you have any awesome Whole30 recipes, I’d love to hear about them! Send them my way! And if you have done Whole30 before, I’d love to hear about your journey and what you think of it all! Please share!!
