What is Whole30?
What’s the difference between Paleo and Whole30?
Paleo is a lifestyle and Whole30 is used for a reset. It’s about eliminating foods to give your body a little of a detox. Yes, the foods that are eliminated are hard like sugars, carbs, legumes, and alcohol. But anyone can do anything for 30 days, right?
Whole30 Salad Recipes:
Salads are the perfect Whole30 compliant meals. They are easy to meal prep, low in carbs, full of veggies, and customizable. Plus, they work great if you are following a keto, paleo or gluten free lifestyle. Add any protein you’d like for a filling and healthy lunch.
Be sure to leave out or swap out any toppings or dressings with dairy free and whole30 compliant ingredients.
