One Month of Whole30 Recipes is all you’ll need to successfully complete a round of Whole30. From delicious suppers to snacks and even a few desserts. The month will fly by with the help of the recipes in this Whole30 Menu Plan!
One Month of Whole30 Recipes
If you are planning on doing a round of Whole30 then you need this complete menu guide to get you through the month. There are more than enough Breakfasts, Lunches, and Dinners on this list to get you through the whole month with no problems. I do plan for leftovers for lunches and breakfasts which is why I’ve included fewer options for each of those.
Whole30 is all out getting back to basics with only fresh whole foods. You aren’t supposed to recreate your favorite desserts/baked goods even with Whole30 approved ingredients. It sounds super restrictive and overwhelming at first, with the lack of sugar, dairy, grains, and processed foods…but it’s easier than it sounds. The hardest part are the cravings the first week.
Whole30 How To Get Started
This is honestly one of the easiest “diets” I’ve ever done. It’s straightforward and there are a ton of great recipes online and in books. It’s basically an elimination diet to find out if your body is having issues processing certain foods. The easiest way to get started is to look up 5-7 recipes that sound good and go shopping. Plan every meal for every day! And make sure you have plenty of snacks…the snacks saved me!
Whole30 What Can I Eat?
Wondering what what to eat on Whole30? The better question is what can you not eat. The list of things you can’t eat is small…but it eliminates a lot of the foods you are used to eating.
Whole30 What Can I Not Eat?
Whole30 foods you should avoid include: grains (wheat, rice, etc), dairy, sugar (of any kind real, fake, honey, etc), alcohol, legumes (including peanuts), MSG, baked goods with approved ingredients. For the complete rules and why these ingredients should be avoided, read here.
30 Whole30 Dinners: One Month of Whole30 Recipes
This selection of Whole30 Dinners got me through my first month. There is a variety of slow cooker Whole30, Instant Pot Whole30, and oven/stovetop Whole30 recipes. They are all very easy to prepare, but there are no shortcuts in Whole30 so plan to spend some time in the kitchen for supper.

8 Whole30 Lunches
I ate a lot of leftovers for lunches. I would make a little bit bigger dinner or pull out my lunch portion and put it away before my family even started to eat supper. That way I knew I would have an easy lunch. However, there were a few days I needed to actually make lunch and these were delicious.
Buffalo Ranch Chicken Salad
Lettuce Taco Wraps
Chipotle Pulled Pork Lettuce Wraps
Sweet Potato Chicken Poppers
Cauliflower Fried Rice
Pulled Tandoori Chicken
Chicken Salad Boats
Jalapeno Turkey Burgers
10 Whole30 Breakfasts
Breakfasts tend to be super easy. Just eggs and bacon and I would be good; however, we love a big weekend breakfast and these totally hit the spot! There are few on this list, that are probably not Whole30 approved due to the fact that they are recreations of traditional breakfasts, like pancakes. The ingredients are Whole30 approved, so it depends on how strict you are doing the plan. For me it was more about the ingredients and detox.
Homemade Turkey Breakfast Sausage
Mini Crust-less Egg Quiches
Sausage & Hash Brown Egg Bake
Sheet Pan Breakfast Bake
Strawberries with Coconut Cashew Crumble
Apple Cinnamon Hot Cereal
Banana Bread Pancakes
Breakfast Pumpkin Custard
Easy Grain-Free Cinnamon Date Granola
Banana Breakfast Smoothie
5 Whole30 Desserts
There are NO Whole30 approved desserts. Whole30 is about resetting your body and mind about food. I tried hard to not make any desserts, but there were a few nights I just really needed something to get me through to the next day and these Whole30 desserts really did the trick. If you decide to have something that would be considered dessert, that is your decision.
Cinnamon Roll Chia Pudding
Sauteed Apples & Pears
Double Berry Coconut Ice Cream
Rocky Road Blender Ice Cream
Grain Free Apple Crisp
Paleo Peach Cobbler
15 Whole30 Snacks
As much as I didn’t want to make Whole30 Desserts…I practically lived on my Whole30 snacks. Most of the time I just grabbed a few simple things and it was totally satisfying, but a few times I actually made a snack and kept it around for a few days to munch on. These Whole30 snacks were a lifesaver!
Prosciutto & Honeydew
Plantain Chips & Salsa
Crispy Bacon & Guacamole
Sliced Mango with Tajin or Chili Powder + Lime Juice
Sliced Apple with Lime Juice
Banana with Almond or Cashew Butter & Flaked Coconut
Nuts, Dried Fruit, Flaked Coconut
Salami & Nuts
Apple with Almond Butter and/or Cinnamon
Chocolate Coconut Bites
Plantain Carnitas Nachos

These recipes are perfect! I can’t wait to try these someday! Thanks for sharing!

Int in this diet due to ms. Looks good sounds easy. Can i have gluten free oatmeal for breakfast.
Wendy O'Neal says
Hi Kathleen. Unfortunately, oatmeal is off limits during Whole 30. My favorite breakfast was eggs & bacon. w-
Just a note for people looking for whole 30 recipes – although your recipes Wendy sound delicious they are not all whole 30. On whole 30 you can not make deserts using approved ingredients or make things like banana pancakes or anything resembling breads. Doing that doesn’t get your body out of the habit of eating sweets and craving carbs. I did the whole 30 and it does work if you do it right. My husband lost 15 lbs. I only lost 8 but I lost more in inches. We tried doing a partial whole 30 like your recipes are suggesting and it just made us crave the things your not supposed to eat more. Not all of these recipes are whole 30 so if you are truly wanting to do whole 30 watch out and read the website on whole 30 first.
Wendy O'Neal says
Yes…you are totally correct Brandi. I lost 15 pounds on my Whole 30 month with these recipes and I do address that not all are “on plan” 100% in my post. w-
