9 Whole30-approved recipes that’ll make you the star of every summer BBQ

It’s easy to get jazzed about the Whole30 diet when you consider all its health benefits, like improved sleep quality, digestion, and energy levels. But the popular plan, which eschews grains, dairy, legumes, alcohol, and sugar, isn’t always a walk in the park—and it’s especially difficult to maintain during the summer social swirl.

Luckily, throwing (or attending) an epic backyard BBQ and sticking to Whole30 don’t have to be mutually exclusive. If you think about it, most picnic staples are meat-, veggie-, or fruit-focused. So, chicken or salmon skewers, burgers, veggie sticks, fruit salad? Yep, you can eat all of that.
