Easy Whole30/Paleo Side Dishes for any occasion! Gluten Free, Grain Free, Dairy Free!

Anyone already planning how you are going to get yourself into awesome shape in the new year?  The more holiday parties I go to and free food at work around this time of year, the more I get excited about January!  Matt and I have already decided that we are going to embark on the Whole30 challenge next month.  I am so excited to reset my bod and tone down my cravings for mass amounts of dark chocolate at night.  Eating real foods has been a great way to get our bodies ready for this challenge and we are ready to up the ante! Wait. Do you even know what Whole30 is?  You can get all of the scoop HERE. But the short version is that you can’t eat grains, dairy, legumes, any sugar (real or artificial), alcohol or any processed anything!! So basically meat, veggies and fruit are A OKAY!  This could be hard to do if you aren’t so creative in the kitchen, but that’s what I am here for!! I have done a few Whole30 approved recipes before but decided to compile a couple of them along with some other awesome blogger recipes so you can get inspired!

I am a part of an awesome blogger community called The Blogger Project that Davida from The Healthy Maven and Lee from Fit Foodie Finds started together.  It is an awesome group of bloggers that just want to help each other and learn from each other!  And they are all amazing so please click through to their sites and check them out!

The first recipe on this list is my Spiced Spaghetti Squash with Roasted Butternut.  This dish is super simple and and the secret spice in the recipe really makes it stand out.
