Stumbled on this today. Some good stuff here.

Whole30 compliant and AWESOME! (and super easy)
Here are my favorite W30 recipes that I still eat at least once a week:
Taco Chicken Wings from Health Bent - if you haven't tried them - DO IT.
Breakfast Chili from Health Bent. Makes enough for the entire week. I top with scrambled egg and bacon sometimes. Really filling:
Omit the water. Best salad dressing we have had. I make it all the time, and we don't eat anything else anymore.
Butternut Squash Soup with Crab: I don't know where I got the recipe, but here it is:
I bought the precut butternut squash from costco and a 1# can of jumbo lump crab meat from Costco. Directions: Roast BN Squash in the oven for 45 min @ 375. I drizzled with EVOO, Salt and Pepper. While I was doing this: In a large soup pot I melted 2-3 TBSP of ghee. I sauted 1 large yellow onion (chopped) and 3 ribs of celery. Also added S&P. Saute for roughly 10-15 min until tender. Add 4c. chicken stock (1 box) and about 1 cup of chopped carrots. I was probably a bit over cuz I am really trying to jam in veggies. I let this cook for about 15 min until the carrots were tender. Once this is done, just set aside until the squash is done. Once the squash is tender, add to the pot. I used an immersion blender and blended the whole thing up. THEN I added 1# crab meat (broken up a little) and 1 cup of coconut milk. Also added S&P. Next time I may add a shallot and some garlic with the onion. I also think topping it with rendered bacon would just put this OVER the edge delicious.
Here are the recipes that I rotate through most frequently that are either W30 compliant or can easily be adjusted to meet W30 requirements. I’m sure many of you who have done a W30 or CFP Nutrition challenge have seen these recipes already, but I figured I’d post it as a reference for some of the new members. I typically cook twice a week, Sundays I’ll grill or broil a value pack of chicken or pork and make 2 or 3 vegetable sides to go with it for my lunches and dinners. Wednesdays I throw something together (usually in the slow cooker) to take me through the rest of the week.
Kalua Pig (smoked pork) http://nomnompaleo.com/post/10031990774/slow-cooker-kalua-pig (I know this seems super easy, but it’s really good and I use the meat in lettuce wraps with salsa and avocado)
Lemongrass and Coconut Chicken http://nomnompaleo.com/post/5242279411/slow-cooker-lemongrass-and-coconut-chicken-drumsticks (I buy the lemon grass in a tube from Safeway and use boneless/skinless chicken thighs…because I’m lazy…)

Cold Cucumber Noodles http://www.theclothesmakethegirl.com/2011/07/16/cold-sesame-cucumber-noodles/
The Nakata Method of roasting vegetables: Dump veggies on baking sheet (I like broccoli because Costco sells it precut), drizzle with olive oil, salt and pepper, bake at 400 degrees for 20ish minutes (I like to leave it in until the edges get a little charred)
Stuff I make when I have a little more time…My “weekend recipes”
Butternut Squash Lasagna http://www.health-bent.com/beef/paleo-butternut-squash-lasagna
Pad Thai http://www.theclothesmakethegirl.com/2011/05/08/paleo-pad-thai/ I made it with shrimp but you could also do pork or chicken
Stuffed Portobellos http://nomnompaleo.com/post/6376896810/sausage-and-spinach-stuffed-portobello-mushrooms
Good Chicken!!! (Mostly because of the brine) http://www.theclothesmakethegirl.com/2009/06/09/the-best-chicken-you-will-ever-eat-ever/
Veggie Sushi Rolls http://nomnompaleo.com/post/30938921261/paleo-eats-9-4-12 (at the very end of the post – its not a recipe but it’s a good idea!...I make mine with raw carrot, cucumber and daikon radish)
Chorizo Mini Meatloaves with Chipotle Tomato Relish http://www.foodrenegade.com/chorizo-mini-meatloves/ (I usually only make the Chipotle Tomato Relish…it’s a great sauce to put on boring grilled chicken or top off an avocado for flavor)
Cilantro Lime Roasted Chicken http://www.foodrenegade.com/zesty-cilantro-lime-roasted-chicken/ (I usually just buy a skin-on split breast so I don’t have to breakdown a whole chicken…I’ve also used the same rub/marinade on fish and shrimp too)
I also second the Taco wings and breakfast chili from Keendran’s post!!! Those are winners!

Wanted to update the cauliflower crust pizza. We tried it again last night, but left the crust in the oven an extra 5 minutes or so. It firmed up a lot better. We also left the pizza in the over for the max time when we added the toppings. Still not like regular pizza, but getting closer.
