Whole30 is an eating plan that can actually become a lifestyle depending on how you approach it. The idea is that you want to eat foods that have not been processed at all such as bread, sugar, and desserts. This sounds easy at first until you start reading labels and realizing everything is processed on some level.

The key is to stick to the perimeter of the grocery store when all the fresh food is. Walking down a cookie aisle is where the craving starts and your diet ends. This approach to eating is not only healthy but very achievable – especially with delicious meals like these ones.

1. Sweet Potato Waffle Breakfast Sandwich

When it comes to breakfast, it’s easy to assume that a good meal is bacon, eggs, and toast. With Whole30 though, anything processed is out of the question.

Enter sweet potato waffles. They are absolutely Whole30 approved and beyond delicious! You can make them sweet or savory, just pick your toppings accordingly.
