Sure, it will help you lose weight and improve digestion. But you also might be thinking, “What on earth is left to eat?”

Relax. You can still enjoy plenty of foods while on the Whole30 diet. 

Here, I have you covered from Monday thru Sunday, from breakfast to dinner. 

These dishes aren’t just delicious, but super filling, too. They’re proof that going Whole30 isn’t as difficult as you make it to be.

1. Whole30 Chicken Salad

This Waldorf salad is made extra hearty and tasty with chunks of chicken.

Made with grapes, celery, almonds, chicken, and tahini, this salad is out-of-this-world delicious.

The use of tahini instead of mayo or Greek yogurt doesn’t just make the salad extra scrumptious, but also Whole30-compliant.

It’s so rich and creamy, you’ll want to add this to your weekly menu even if you’re not following the Whole30 diet.

2. Grilled Salmon with Avocado Salsa

I’m obsessed with salmon. It’s the kind of protein that’s just delicious no matter what.

Heck, you don’t even need to cook it. Just slice and serve it fresh for some irresistible sashimi.

But for this recipe, the salmon is made extra special with a flavorful spice rub. It’s grilled to perfection, then garnished with creamy avocado salsa on top.

3. Dairy-Free Tzatziki Sauce (Vegan)

A simple way to add flavor to any dish is to top it with a dollop of sauce. This cold and creamy tzatziki is a perfect example.

4. Perfect Deviled Eggs With Bacon

Serve these deviled eggs at any party, and they’ll be a certified hit! 

They’re Whole30, paleo, and keto-friendly. More importantly, they’re seriously delish.

The egg yolks are mixed with mustard, mayo, butter, and vinegar, giving them a ridiculously creamy yet well-balanced flavors.

Here’s another sheet pan meal that’s a certified crowd-pleaser. I mean, it’s flank steak and bell peppers roasted in a glorious chipotle sauce!

The best part is how easy it is to make. Just dump all the ingredients on the pan and bake!

8. Potato Crust Quiche

Traditional quiches have a pastry crust at the bottom. It’s easy to turn it into a Whole30-friendly dish, though.

Just use potatoes instead of pastry and you’re all set.

Besides the crisp potato crust, it’s also loaded with creamy eggs and a medley of vegetables.

Rich, savory, and hearty, this quiche is a great way to start your day.

9. 10-Minute Chili Lime Shrimp

11. Whole30 Sweet Potato Hash

A colorful medley of sweet potatoes, bacon, bell peppers, and fresh herbs, this hash is the ultimate breakfast.

Oh, and did I mention this dish is garnished with fried eggs on top? Just watching the golden yolks ooze into the dish will give you so much pleasure.

With the air fryer, your asparagus spears will be wonderfully crispy on the outside and tender on the inside in no time.

With the air fryer, never again will you end up with dry and rubbery steak.

17. Garlic Butter Chicken and Potato Skillet

What do you get when you combine crispy-tender potatoes and juicy chicken flavored with garlic butter sauce?

A mind-blowingly scrumptious dish, that’s what! 

You really can’t go wrong with chicken and potatoes. These two are a match made in heaven.

Add the garlic butter sauce into the picture and it gets even better.

18. Hearty Vegetable Soup

This ground beef and vegetable soup is as hearty and delicious as it is colorful.

Filled to the brim with perfectly seasoned ground beef, potatoes, carrots, onions, and tomatoes, this truly is what soup dreams are made of.

Loaded with carbs, vegetables, protein, and fat, you don’t need anything else whenever this soup is involved. The dish is a complete meal on its own.

19. Prosciutto Wrapped Pork Tenderloin

Tender and juicy tenderloin is based with honey Dijon, wrapped in prosciutto, and roasted to perfection.

How awesome is it that a dish this indulgent is also Whole30-friendly? This is a meal you’ll want to serve even if you’re not following the diet!

20. Whole30 Blackened Shrimp Tacos

Plump and sweet shrimp pieces are blackened with a spice and herb mix and pan-fried to perfection.

You’ll love how the blackened seasoning creates a crisp and earthy crust around the tender shrimp. 

Serve the shrimp in lettuce and top with onions, mango salsa, and avocado for the perfect low-carb tacos.

21. Two-Ingredient Baked Egg and Sweet Potato Nests

How can something so adorable be embarrassingly easy to make? 

These baked egg and sweet potato nests only call for 2 ingredients, but they’re ridiculously scrumptious.

The sweet potato shreds are a wonderful mix of textures: crispy, tender, and crunchy.

The sunny side-up egg on top complements the potatoes with its umami-rich flavor.

22. Spiralized Sweet Potato Fries

Another spud-tastic dish that absolutely won’t disappoint are these sweet potato fries. They’re curly, crunchy, crispy, and sweet on the inside.

The only problem I have with it is how addictive it is! Self-control is definitely a must-have whenever this snack is involved.

23. Garlic Balsamic Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Bacon

Brussels sprouts aren’t the most well-loved vegetable, but with this recipe, they’ll be a hit even with kids.

Drizzled with a sweet garlic balsamic glaze and roasted with bacon, these Brussels sprouts are nothing short of perfection.

They’re crispy on the outside, creamy and nutty on the inside, and flavored in the best way possible.

24. Baked Salmon in Foil with Garlic, Rosemary, and Thyme

Here’s another salmon dish you’ll absolutely enjoy.

In this recipe, the fish is drizzled with ghee, thyme, rosemary, and garlic. It’s then wrapped in foil and baked to perfection.

The resulting dish is ridiculously tender, fatty, flaky, and packed with rich and earthy flavors. 

25. Whole30 Burgers – Burger Joint Style

Just because you’re on a diet doesn’t mean you can’t indulge. With this recipe, you’ll enjoy a juicy and meaty burger a la In ‘N Out! 

Instead of buns, we’ll stick with iceberg lettuce to still be Whole30 compliant. But I promise you, these burgers are still phenomenal even without the buns.
