Nom Nom Paleo + Whole30 by Michelle Tam

If you’re looking for cheap, fast, and easy Whole30 dishes, you can’t beat recipes that showcase the humble egg. I always have a few dozen pasture raised eggs in my fridge so I can whip up healthy, tasty meals in a flash!

My favorite thing about cooking with eggs is that you can use them to stretch your leftovers. If you have some leftover stir-fry or cooked protein but not quite enough to feed the whole family, you can add a few whisked eggs to make a big frittata or scramble. Plus, eggs are great for any time of the day—not just breakfast or brunch!

Here are some of my favorite Whole30 Egg Recipes:

Whole30 Soup & Salad Egg Recipes

Simple Egg Drop Soup: This delicious Whole30-friendly simple egg drop soup can be made in about 5 minutes from start to finish. It’s perfect for any meal of the day! Top it with crispy leftover Instant Pot Kalua Pig for a special treat!

Bacon Deviled Egg Salad: This bacon-y make-ahead egg salad is perfect for picnics, parties, potlucks, and packed lunches!

Sunnyside Salad: This isn’t your typical egg salad, people. Crispy fried eggs on top of salad greens is my favorite go-to Whole30 breakfast, lunch, and dinner!

From her, I gained a deep, abiding love for magically transforming pantry items into mouth-watering family meals.
