If you have a tradition job where you don’t work from home, a lot of these recipes will have to be done with some meal prep at the beginning of the week.

Whole30 meal prep may look like this:

  • Wash all fruits and vegetables
  • Peel and cut all vegetables for easy snacks and quicker cooking.
  • Pre-cook any meat for salads, stir-fries.
  • Pre-cook casseroles to take to work.

I recommend buying some glass snap lids for transporting. They can go from fridge to oven or microwave to dishwasher.

They’re so simple to deal with.

You can find them on my Amazon Whole30 Resource page.

Whole30 Lunch Recipes

Here are a few Whole30 lunches found on The Bewitchin’ Kitchen:


Whole30 Broccoli Cauliflower Salad

Broccoli and Cauliflower Salad with Sun Butter Sauce

From Our Salty Kitchen

Our Salty Kitchen’s delicious salad is a nut free Whole30 meal. It’s a fantastic vegan option that’s perfect for making ahead to take with you to work.

Crunchy vegetables (and my favorite varieties) with a creamy sunbutter dressing, talk about a match made in heaven.

California burger bowls Whole30

California Burger Bowls

From Fixed on Fresh

I love a good burger, and sometimes that’s one of the most difficult parts of doing Whole30. However, I love this version of a burger bowl! Fixed on Fresh speaks my love language with adding in pickles (just make sure they’re Whole30 compliant).

Whole30 Tuna Salad

Chili Tuna Spiralized Spring Vegetables Salad

From Cotter Crunch

Cotter Crunch is one of my favorite bloggers. She has such incredible gluten-free recipes. This Chili Tina Spiralized Salad is a favorite because it’s not a Whole30 lunch recipe that you see every day. It’s not trying to replace anything, it’s unique all on its own.

The fact that it’s ready in 10 minutes makes it a winner.

Whole30 lunch - Chicken Zucchini Poppers

Chicken Zucchini Poppers

From One Lovely Life

What really piqued my attention with these chicken zucchini poppers is that she mentions a member of her family not liking zucchini but he LOVED these. I’m not a huge zucchini fan either. I want to like it, trust me, but I truly have to hide it. So knowing that it’s loved by a zucchini hater sold me.

The fact that it’s such a simple Whole30 recipe makes it even better.

Cauliflower Pitas

Cauliflower Pitas with Avocado Crema

From Paleo Gluten Free Eats

Just looking at the photo has me drooling! Reading through the recipe, it doesn’t look overly difficult and may be a great option for lunches.

If it happens to fall apart during transport, it won’t make a difference. It will be just as delicious eaten with a fork. I say that because knowing me, I’d mess it up somehow.

Whole30 meal prep bowl

Buffalo Chicken Ranch Meal Prep Bowls

I love this Whole30 lunch idea! Cauliflower rice with a creamy Whole30 homemade ranch dressing, avocado, veggies, and spicy buffalo sauce.

Delicious veggies topped with a creamy cashew dressing – sounds like my kind of meal!

Chicken Pesto Stuffed Sweet Potatoes Whole30 lunches

Chicken Pesto Stuffed Sweet Potatoes

I love pesto, I love chicken, and I love sweet potatoes.

So I’m pretty sure this recipe is a home run. I’m adding this to my meal plan next week!
