One of the most popular types of diet resets is the Whole 30 program. Many of our team members have tried it and loved the results. We’re sharing a few Whole 30 compliant recipes to help you if you decide to try this program. However, even if you aren’t doing it, we think you’ll still really enjoy these healthy and easy meals!
What is Whole 30?
Whole 30 is a diet type that focuses on eliminating common foods for a 30 day period and then slowly reintroducing these to see how your body reacts.
“The Whole30 has been changing lives since 2009, when co-founder Melissa Hartwig Urban blogged about a 30-day dietary experiment that transformed her health, habits, and emotional relationship with food.
Since then, millions of people have changed their lives with the Whole30 program; eliminating cravings, improving energy and sleep, reporting an improvement in allergies, anxiety, chronic pain, digestive issues, skin conditions; and losing weight healthfully and sustainably.”
There are some simple Do’s and Don’ts for the Whole 30. Check them out here!

- Think of this as less of recipe and more of a general guideline for how to make a delicious stir fry! You can switch up the veggies for whatever is in season and tweak the seasonings for a slightly different taste every time.
- If you aren’t doing Whole 30, you can serve this stir fry over rice for a delicious bowl. Or, to stay compliant, just use cauliflower rice.
- You can also add your protein of choice to this recipe. Chicken, tofu, and skirt steak would all be delicious!
