There are more rules to follow, but for the basics, remember that if you are doing Whole 30, you are temporarily eliminating the following:
- Grains – that means no rice, pasta, oats, etc.
- Sugar – of course white and brown sugar, but also honey, maple syrup, etc
- Dairy – milk, cheese, yogurt
- Beans and legumes – yes, that includes peanut butter
- Alcohol – beer, wine, hard liquor
But you CAN have fruits, vegetables, grass-fed meats, herbs and spices, potatoes and sweet potatoes, nuts, and cooking fats like avocado oil, coconut oil, and ghee (which is a perfect substitute for butter). So enjoy these recipes, which range from chicken and fish to beef and pork, plus some eggs and even vegetarian dishes.

Then after Whole 30 is over, or if you are also trying to keep your kids happy and fed but don’t want to make different meals, you can always serve these dishes with pasta, rice, or bread.
