When I did my first Whole30 back in January, I did all the things you’re supposed to do. I read through all the books, I meal planned for every single meal, and I mostly avoided the SWYPO (sex with your pants on) foods that Whole30 strongly looks down on (enter: small eye roll.) It was challenging, but I felt great after it was over.
During those 30 days I found a few key recipes that made my life a whole lot more enjoyable on such a strict program. These recipes were either so delicious that I forgot I wasn’t eating pasta, or made my life a little easier (read: batch cooking). These five recipes in particular I made multiple times and still eat today even though I’m done with Whole30.
