Trying a Whole30® can be a great way to refresh your diet or routine. If you’re already busy or overloaded with life, you might wonder how you have enough time to do even more prepping or cooking.
The Whole30 diet means doing 30 days (or longer) of a restricted version of Paleo. Any added sweeteners, even those that are Paleo, are not allowed, and neither are Paleo baked goods or alcohol. Foods like soy, dairy, grains, and other non-Paleo foods are definitely off the table. While it can feel restrictive, it’s only for a month—and it’s a great way to give yourself a dietary reset.
Going Whole30 recipes don’t have to be time-intensive or complicated. These 15 recipes are the perfect way to maximize your time in the kitchen. Even if you hate cooking, these easy Whole30 recipes are so delicious, you’ll keep eating them long after your 30 days are up.
