Whole Made Meal Ideas

First off I'd like to thank Paige Reagan, (soon to be) a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner, for contributing these incredible, simple, tasty and HEALTHY "whole-male meals" to the world. These are her descriptions. To read more about Paige and our exclusive Nutritional Therapy section, please visit here

These meals are PALEO Friendly, Gluten Free, WholeFood30 friendly, unprocessed and 100% approved by me! If you want to feel healthier, lose a couple of pounds along the way and get your digestive system under control, try some of these out!




Whole-Made Meal #1

"Whole-made meal" using these amazing organic, seasonal ingredients. Free-range chicken, Brussels sprouts and white sweet potatoes roasted in virgin coconut oil, with sauteed purple cabbage. A few minutes of prep work, a pinch of sea salt, and you're done!




Whole-Made Meal # 2


A simple "whole-made" meal in under 30 minutes. Wild-caught salmon on top of organic zucchini noodles that were lightly sauteed in avocado oil and tossed with a homemade, dairy-free, orange-basil pesto made with pistachios instead of the usual pine nuts! A few organic grape tomatoes, a spoonful of pesto, and a pinch of arugula microgreens finish the dish. Simple to make and loaded with protein, healthful Omega-3s, and fresh, colorful carbs!






Whole-Made Meal # 3

"This dish captures fall on a plate! Roasted organic delicata squash, drizzled with a homemade lemon tahini sauce, and topped with antioxidant-rich pomegranate seeds. 

Have you ever had delicata squash? If not, give it a try! It takes only 20 minutes to roast with alittle avocado oil and you can even eat the skin! 

Do what you can to eat seasonally and locally. Plants get their nourishment from the sun and soil. Seasonal produce is picked when its fresh and this is when it has the highest nutrient content. When you eat locally your food spends less time in transit and it also helps to support all of those awesome local farmers!"



Whole-Made Meal # 4


A bowl of comfort food on a cool fall night filled with homemade turkey chili, spaghetti squash, a quick pico de gallo made with tomatoes, cilantro, green onions, lime, and a pinch of sea salt, and of course avocado!

Spaghetti squash is so easy make and the perfect low-carb replacement in dishes that call for pasta and grains. It is low in calories and packs a nutritional punch with lots of vitamins C and B6 and healthful minerals, especially potassium, which is important for muscle performance.




Whole-Made Meal #5

Taking advantage of the fall root vegetables to make this amazing "mash" with parsnips, cauliflower, garlic, sea salt, and a splash of chicken bone broth. A quick and easy nutrient-dense version of mashed potatoes just in time for the holiday season. Topped it with a stir fry of grass-fed organic beef, red peppers, onions, and broccoli that was sauteed in a homemade sauce made with ginger and coconut aminos.  Had dinner on the table in 20 minutes!






Whole-Made Meal #6

Love rice but not the high carbs? Then give cauliflower rice a try.  It is simple to make with just a few quick pulses of a food processor. Cauliflower is a nutrient-dense cruciferous vegetable that is low in calories and filled with vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. It has a mild taste that blends well with other flavors. Saute it in a bit of olive oil with finely chopped lacinato kale, red onion, zucchini, and a homemade tomato basil sauce made with organic diced tomatoes, tomato paste, and spices. Top it with a few wild-caught shrimp or the protein of your choice for a quick and easy wholemade meal!
