I LOVE this cookbook! Most of the recipes are wins, several have made their way into my favorite dishes to make (North African Chicken with roasted carrots? ❤ Forever and ever. Pork tenderloin and apple carrot sauerkraut is my new favorite way to eat pork and cabbage ), and I still have a bunch of pages marked for more winter appropriate dishes. I can’t recommend this book enough. Everything is so tasty! Highly recommend trying this if you’re looking to cut out processed sugar. Everything is so ...more

There are a lot of great recipes in this book. They are written in a way that's easy to follow. Every one was a hit. They don't sound too impressive by the names alone but they are balanced, full of flavor and satisfying. I didn't fully appreciate them until I started trying other Whole30 or Paleo recipes from the internet. My favorites from this book include Bistro Breakfast Salad, Sausage-Mushroom Frittata, Asian Beef Zoodle Soup, and Asian Sesame Chicken Salad. A few of the recipes can be use ...more

I have made many recipes from this book, and every one has been very good. We especially like the Thai Coconut Chicken Soup, Autumn Hash, Italian Meatball Soup, and Cuban Spiced Pork Tenderloin.

The organization of the book and photographs are very good. The "Introduction" and additional tips for each recipe are very informative. In looking for "substitutes" for many things while eating Whole 30 and Paleo, I found the "Sauces and Dressings" and "Basics" sections to be extremely helpful. The exten

An excellent book. Lots of great recipes .... we are continuing try out new ones.
I really like the Whole 30 cooking method for people with different sensitivities and diet needs. After years of dealing with and cooking for family members with food allergies, sensitivities ( grains,dairy, sulfites, etc.) it is refreshing to find a cookbook like The Whole 30 Cookbook with healthy appealing recipes to help people feel better through becoming more aware of common "food triggers" which affect their

Lots of interesting recipes. I bought this and the Whole30 book at the same time because I was starting the Whole30 with two friends in just a couple of days. I really did not need this book as I am a fairly accomplished cook and can easily determine what I could make that would be compliant. But for someone who is not used to cooking and avoiding processed foods, there are some great tips and recipes in this book.
Jun 09, 2017 rated it really liked it
This is a much more extensive set of recipes for doing a Whole30, than just the original book. Super helpful! But beware! A lot of the recipes are combination recipes that will take a bit more time than originally expected. Still, very tasty and helpful with providing ideas for creative food combinations, whether you're doing the Whole30 or not
Jan 05, 2018 rated it liked it
I can’t really say that I would make the majority of these recipes. Most are beyond my skill, comfort, or budget level. However, it gives you ideas of ways to cook in the whole 30 style, and especially helpful for me, are the many different spice combinations you can use in a lot of recipes. That is an area where I struggle.

These recipes are a little more fancy than the original book. They take a little more time. Some ingredients are hard to find. Sometimes I feel that when I'm cooking these things that I'm missing the point of whole30. Just eat Whole Foods. It doesn't have to be difficult.

That being said, there are lots of yummy things things here.

If you prefer holding a book vs reading online, or are in the mood to create more labor intensive meals, make the investment. The introduction/philosophy behind the whole30 concept was helpful, but most of it is also available on-line. I found the recipes to be a good jumping off point for easier recipes, but I preferred recipes that I found on-line.

A terrific book that is filled with recipes that make everyone at our table happy. With all our food sensitivities we have managed to be satisfied with the Whole 30 meals.
Love this book and just purchased the fast and easy version of this Whole30.

This is a very nice cookbook. Pretty, too! And it includes ingredients that I've actually heard of, which helps. Still not sure why it's okay to serve cauliflower rice if you're trying to avoid things that the brain can substitute as a grain, but it's delicious, so who cares.

Try the Moroccan Chicken and Carrot-Pistachio Slaw on page 143. Spectacular! I’m also going to try the Spicy Cacao-Orange Almonds on p. 275 for our Super Bowl party.

Since doing an official Whole30 in September, I have been trying to cook Whole30 whenever possible. When I heard this cookbook was coming out, I knew I had to have it. I got Jim to buy it for me for Christmas. Since then I have made many recipes from this cookbook, and I have loved them all. I don't want to give an official star rating on this book, but if you're looking for a healthy way of eating, I highly recommend Whole30. And being prepared with good recipes makes that program possible. The ...more
Jan 28, 2018 rated it did not like it
I found very little to recommend this book. I found the recipes and ingredients inaccessible. Too many ingredients for the average Joe home cook and weird ingredients, too. Like what the heck are coconut aminos? And I guess it's allowed in Whole30, but I didn't love seeing so many potato- and starched-based recipes, which I consider essentially junk food, in a healthy eating cookbook.
Oct 07, 2017 rated it really liked it
I am giving the Whole30 a try and am finding this cookbook really helpful. Unlike some diet cookbooks, the recipes are actually interesting and ones I want to try out. I have already tried a couple and they are hits. I especially appreciated the section on basics like sauces and such and the introduction that explains Whole30.
