Are you guys still hanging tight with your Whole30? I have one more week of easy and family-friendly dinner ideas to keep you on track. If your house is anything like ours, you’ve had your fair share of cold, flu and cough. I’ve added some immunity boosting ingredients to this week’s meal plan to keep you going strong.
Grilled steaks, smashed Yukon gold potatoes and roasted broccoli. The trick to grilling meat is not to mess with it too much and to let it develop a nice sear. Flip once, and when the steak come off the grill finish with a generous dusting of Maldon sea salt and let rest before serving.
I want something simple that takes very little effort to pull off. A chorizo frittata with a side of roasted sweet potatoes is just what the doctor ordered! I’m following the formula for my BLT frittata, but substituting about 4-6 ounces of Whole30 compliant chorizo for the bacon. Add any herbs you have on hand that need to be used up. Serve with compliant green salsa, cilantro and thin radish slices.
Slow cooker carnitas. So easy and hands off. Serve them with guacamole, pico de gallo, jalapeños and quick pickled onions. When I’m doing a round of Whole30, I like to have mine over a bowl of finely shredded cabbage or salad greens.
I’m headed to LA today to tape a cooking segment for Home&Family on Hallmark! Set the DVR for Friday morning. Since I’ll be gone for a couple days, I’m defrosting a batch of kale minestrone for my family. The original recipe contains white beans, but this makes a delicious Whole30 vegetable soup without the beans.
Quick veggie stir fry for the win. My husband has this one down, and my kids say he makes it better than I do. Probably because he always makes it with a side of pan-fried dumplings. This is one of the most popular recipes on my site –– it may sound a little boring, but it has great flavor and comes together quickly!
Wonton meatballs over steamed cauliflower rice with a side of quickly sautéd sugar snap peas. These are also delicious in won ton soup with a gingery chicken broth. When I make the wonton meatballs I use 1 1/2 pounds group pork instead of any shrimp (because I’m allergic to shrimp). But I’m sure they’re delicious as is!
