No matter what you think of the Whole30. . . good or bad, we can all use new (to us) recipe ideas, right? Bonus points if they are made with good for you ingredients!

So, I am about 2 weeks in (day 18 to be exact) on the Whole30 {+spark} and I have been eating some super good meals. And I thought I would share in case you are looking for some new recipes or meal inspiration.

Here are some of my recent winners. those recipes that I will be making again!

Slow cooker carrot and beef stew {minus wine and cabbage. Add more onion, carrot and chicken broth}


Meatballs with sauce and spaghetti squash {Laura made this for dinner my first week in Eau Claire and it was seriously like sitting down to a huge plate of pasta. Totally comforting and satisfying.}


Easy Baked Chicken Fajitas {served over lettuce}

Chicken Fajitas

Slow cooker chicken coconut curry {perfect over oven baked potatoes}


Garlic roasted carrots {omg so good!}

Garlic Roasted Carrots - This is really the best and easiest way to roast carrots. All you need is 5 min prep. It's just that quick and easy! 59.5 calories.

Butternut squash bake. {recipe from Well Fed}


I’ve also been loving

  • roasted sweet potatoes, drippy eggs and avocado.
  • Chicken salad with either homemade mayo {seriously, so good} or avocado.
  • Bananas with coconut flakes and nuts.
  • Steak on the grill.
  • Salads.

What have you been eating lately?? Feel free to share links in the comments!

I am linking up with Peas & Crayons for What I Ate Wednesday this week.

  1. The chicken coconut curry sounds awesome! Lately I’ve been eating juice, juice, and more juice! I bought a ton of stuff for my new juicer over the weekend, and now I’m afraid I won’t get through it all quickly enough before it goes bad haha. I’ll have to pace my grocery trips moving forward.

      Ha!! I did the same thing when I first got my juicer. Loved trying new combos. The only thing I didn’t like was celery. yuck!

  2. I have got to try spaghetti squash again. Tried it when I was a kid and I didn’t like it. Hopefully my taste buds have matured because I MISS pasta. Steak on the grill……….I can’t wait for it to warm up!!

      YES!! So good. Cut in half, scoop out the seeds, sprinkle with olive oil, salt and pepper and roast cut side up in the oven at 400 degrees for about 30 minutes or until the strands are easily removed with a fork!

  3. Today is my 3rd day on whole 30 so I love all of these ideas! Definitely a major key to eating healthy is planning! I have a curried parsnips and carrot soup that I will be trying out today. I’ll have to let you know how it is!
