You could think of your Whole30 as a tough month of eliminating and limiting foods—or, consider it a challenge in which you take real, whole foods and transform them into super-delicious meals that love you back. We choose the latter. Here are some of our favorite meals that you’ll crave even after your Whole30 is done.

Whole30 Mongolia Beef Stir Fry

A dish that’s bursting with flavor and on the table in 35 minutes? Oh yeah, baby. You’ll have this one done before takeout would have arrived, and this version is far healthier and tastes better. Win-win. Serve it on cauliflower rice.

Egg Roll in a Bowl with Creamy Chili Sauce

Egg roll in a bowl is a classic Whole30 dish, and we love this version because it’s a one-skillet meal, it’s ready in less than 30 minutes and, did we mention creamy chili sauce??

Whole30 Blender Cauliflower Falafel Tahini Bowl

Falafel on a Whole30? Yes! With cauliflower as a base in place of chickpeas (is there anything cauli can’t do?), lots of herbs and a yummy tahini sauce, this bowl makes a fantastic vegetarian meal.

Dairy-Free Spaghetti Squash Chicken Alfredo

Comfort food alert! Here’s a dish the whole family will love, whether they’re Whole30-ing with you or not. Creamy, rich and luscious. Roast some chopped broccoli alongside the squash to throw in or eat on the side.

Whole30 Fish Taco Bowls

Taco-seasoned mahi mahi, shredded cabbage, mango salsa, lime-cilantro cauliflower rice… why are you still reading and not making this dish yet?

Spinach-Artichoke Twice-Baked Potatoes

Another awesome vegetarian meal that’s also Whole30, and we love the twist on spinach-artichoke dip. Swap in sweet potatoes if russets aren’t your thing.

Vietnamese Lemongrass Chicken

One of the things that’s cool about Whole30 is that if you look at it as an adventure, you can use it as an opportunity to explore cool ingredients—in this case, lemongrass. You do have to marinate this chicken, but it’s SO worth the wait.

Paleo Burgers with Caramelized Balsamic Onions and Avocado

We love a simple burger as much as anyone, but once you start talking caramelized onions, we’re done for. Plus, since you give up sugar on Whole30, the caramelized onions will taste even sweeter.

The Tastiest Paprika Garlic Shrimp

We won’t argue with this description, since the recipe calls for 3 tablespoons of garlic, lots of paprika, coconut milk, lemon and pepper. Yum, yum and yum.

Instant Pot Moroccan Lamb Stew

Lamb is loaded with flavor, and offers lots of omega-3s. Plus, there are tons of veggies in this colorful stew, along with a few dried apricots for interest. The Instant Pot makes it all so simple.
