@melissasfoodfreedom ‘s SAUCY, CRISPY BUFFALO CHICKEN POPPERS 😍 My famous recipe, a Whole30 favorite! Here's what you need: For the Chicken Poppers: -1 lb. Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breast -1/3 C. Almond Flour -1 tsp. Paprika -1/2 tsp. Salt -1/2 tsp. Black Pepper -1 Tbsp. Garlic Powder -2 Eggs -Avocado Oil For the Buffalo Sauce: -1/2 C. Hot Sauce (check your labels!) -1/4 C. Ghee -2 tsp. Garlic Powder Here's what to do: 1. Slice chicken into small nuggets. Then combine dry ingredients in one bowl and whisk eggs in another bowl. 2. Pour avocado oil into a deep skillet until surface is coated in oil. Set to medium-high heat. 3. With one hand, dip the chicken poppers one at a time in eggs, coat, and then place in dry ingredients bowl. Use your other hand to press dry mix into chicken poppers and set aside (using one hand per bowl keeps your hands from turning into gooey batter fingers). 4. Once oil in skillet is shimmering, Place all chicken poppers at once in pan in a single layer. Cook about 4 minutes per side, and transfer to a paper towel lined plate. 5. In a small bowl, Melt ghee and then whisk in hot sauce and garlic powder. Then use a silicone brush to coat each chicken strip in sauce. 6. Serve with @whole30 compliant ranch and a big pile of greens. Enjoy! 🌿 @melissasfoodfreedom | recipe available at melissasfoodfreedom.com .

@melissasfoodfreedom ‘s LAZY BREAKFAST CASSEROLE 🍳 I use this basic recipe for breakfast casseroles, swapping out white or sweet potatoes, throwing in peppers or broccoli, trading kielbasa for breakfast sausage or bacon... so easy and interchangeable! Plus, it heats up SUPER well for a whole week of breakfasts! Here’s what you need: -8 C. Frozen Shredded Potatoes (check your labels!) -1/2 Package Kielbasa, Chopped -11 Eggs -Olive Oil Here’s what to do: 1. Preheat oven to 350°. Spray a 9x13 baking dish with olive oil. 2. Place the kielbasa and the frozen shredded potato into the dish and stir together, spreading evenly. Season with salt and pepper if desired. 3. Scramble the eggs and pour over the kielbasa and potato mixture. Cover with foil at bake for 1 hr. You can serve immediately, or slice it up and store to microwave for breakfast before work/school/etc. I never really make this quite the same way- no worries if you’re short an egg or two, or if you want to toss in extra veggies or leftover protein instead! Keep it simple. 👍🏻 @melissasfoodfreedom | recipe available at melissasfoodfreedom.com .

Josh from @kitchfix here to wish all the dads out there a Happy Father’s Day and to showcase our final recipe for grill season. Wanna know the perfect way to celebrate? BACON WRAPPED SCALLOPS WITH A PEACH THYME MOCKTAIL. . I’m celebrating today with my son, Milo, and my family in Michigan. Comment below how you’re celebrating (and what you’re eating!) . Bacon Wrapped Scallops with Peach Thyme Mocktail Serves 4 . Bacon Wrapped Scallop Ingredients: 1lb Sea Scallops 1 pack W30 Approved Bacon Wooden Skewers Salt and Pepper . SOAK the skewers in water so they don’t burn as easily on the grill SEASON the scallops with salt and pepper. You don’t need to use a lot of salt as there is salt in the bacon. WRAP the bacon around the scallops and then skewer the scallops with the wooden skewers GRILL the kebabs on the grill for 1 minute on each side. Scallops cook quickly! . If you like your bacon a little more crispy, you can par cook your bacon in the oven on a sheet tray at 375F for about 6 minutes. Then remove, and do the same as above. 🥓🥓🥓 . Lastly, for this picture we took our garlic aioli and blended it with some roasted red peppers we had lying around, then tossed some arugula in lemon juice and olive oil. Perfecto! . Peach Thyme Mocktail Ingredients: 1 part Peach-Pear La Croix 2 parts GT Dave’s Gingerade Kombucha 2-3 slices Fresh Peach, per drink 1 sprig Fresh Thyme as a garnish, per drink . This drink is very simple and refreshing. Ginger, peach and thyme are perfect combos. I lighten up the kombucha with the addition of peach-pear @lacroixwater. You can muddle the peaches and thyme prior to adding the liquid to really bring out their flavor. Pour over the La Croix and Kombucha, give it a swirl with the thyme sprig and enjoy! 🍑 .

Hello Whole30ers! It’s Josh from @kitchfix again and it’s your lucky day: I saved my FAVORITE cauliflower rice dish for my last takeover day - and I can’t wait to share it with you! . Eating cauliflower rice can get tiring, but not this caulirice! This CREOLE “DIRTY” RICE packs a ton of unique flavor with the Cajun Holy Trinity (ie (celery, pepper, & onion) and toasted pecans. I’ve paired this decadent caulirice with a blackened fish, but it would also go well with chicken or even alone! . Creole “Dirty” Rice Serves 4-6 . Ingredients: 1 Tbl Extra virgin olive oil 2 cup Cauliflower, riced ½ cup Onion, small dice ½ cup Green bell pepper, small dice ½ cup Celery, small dice ½ cup Carrot, small dice 1 Tbl Garlic, minced ¼ cup Pecans, toasted ¼ cup Sunflower seeds, toasted ¼ cup Kale, blanched and chopped 2 tsp Cajun seasoning (Whole30 approved!) ½ bu Parsley, freshly chopped 2 Tbl Fresh squeezed lemon juice ½ tsp Sea salt ¼ tsp Black pepper . Instructions: SAUTE the cauliflower rice with the garlic and EVOO until the food is cooked yet still slightly firm SET aside the caulirice for now SWEAT the carrot, onion, green bell pepper, and celery until they are fork tender TOAST the pecans and sunflower seeds until they are golden brown delicious COMBINE all the ingredients together in a mixing bowl ADJUST the seasoning with salt, pepper, cajun, and a splash of lemon juice SERVE alongside a blackened fish fillet DON’T be ashamed if you end up eating it straight out of the bowl. It’s that satisfying! . #Whole30 #Whole30Recipes .

Hi guys! Josh here from @kitchfix to give you some ideas for my favorite season: grilling season! Let’s kick it off with these CARAMELIZED GRAPE CHICKEN KEBABS. My next 3 recipes in this takeover will be grill themed so follow along to see what I have up my sleeve! 🍢 . I added grapes to my skewers because they caramelize on the grill and add a little sweet to this summer savory dish. Plus the grapes help to keep the chicken nice and moist. Pro tip: Add thick cut @Whole30approved bacon to these for another layer of flavor! 🍇 . Caramelized Grape Chicken Kebabs Serve 6 . Ingredients: 8 wooden or metal skewers 1 yellow or red onion cut into big square pieces 1 lb Chicken Breast, cut into large pieces 1/2 bag of red grapes, picked from the stems If you’re doing bacon, half of a package of whole30 approved bacon cut into 1 inch strips should do it! . Marinade: ½ c Extra Virgin Olive Oil 2 cloves Fresh Garlic, sliced ¼ c Chopped Parsley ½ Lemon, juiced . Instructions: . SOAK your wooden skewers (if you’re using) in water so that when you put them on the grill they don’t burn as easily ORGANIZE your kebab station by placing all your ingredients in bowls or on a tray ready to skewer! SKEWER the ingredients to your liking alternating as you go MIX the marinade ingredients together and pour over the complete skewers - you can let them sit in the marinade overnight, or just throw them on the grill right away. The longer you marinate them the more the flavors will infuse. GRILL the skewers on a hot grill. I like to leave the ends of my kebabs off the grill as much as possible. You can also put a piece of foil on the grill and then I place the exposed end of the kebabs over the foil so they don’t burn! #whole30 #whole30recipes


Here at @kitchfix, everyone loves our Chimichurri sauce, so I wanted to try a new take on the traditional green chimichurri. Through much R&D Chef Joe, our Executive Chef, landed on this RED PEPPER CHIMICHURRI SAUCE! . It’s very versatile but we like it best when it’s paired with grilled chicken or a grilled veggie platter featured here! It’s sure to impress guests at your next barbecue. Try it out and let me know what you would serve with it! I would love to hear your ideas. 🌶 . Red Pepper Chimichurri Sauce Makes almost 2 cups . Ingredients: ¾ c Parsley, chopped ¼ c Cilantro, Chopped 1 ¼ c Extra Virgin Olive Oil 1 ¼ tsp Celtic Sea Salt 1 tsp Dried Oregano ¾ tsp Red Pepper Chili Flake 1 tbs and 1 tsp Red Wine Vinegar 1 ¼ tsp Smoked Paprika ¼ c Roasted Red Bell Peppers ¾ tsp Garlic . SAUTE the garlic in a few tablespoons of the extra virgin garlic oil, let cool ADD the remaining ingredients to a food processor, plus the oil/garlic PULSE the ingredients in the food processor - I like to keep mine a little chunky! . If you’re wondering why we use fresh cilantro and parsley but also dried oregano, well then I’m impressed! Britta and I ate at this at an Argentinian steak house in our neighborhood and I noticed that they used dried oregano in their chimmichurri. Dried oregano has such a unique flavor, so I adopted it in my recipe as well! #whole30 #whole30recipes


Hey everybody! It’s Josh from @kitchfix and I’m kicking off the weekend with one of my all time favorite sides. For this LOADED CAULIFLOWER MASH, we use cauliflower in two different ways. In order to create a texture similar to mashed potatoes, we boil and mash half of the cauliflower, but for the other half, we cut them into florets and roast them to fold into the mixture and save some for the top. . Cauliflower aside, I can't say enough about these toppings! We top this mash with 🥓, scallions, and our very own almond parmesan! What’s that, you say? It’s a sprinkle of @whole30 joy we have created by toasting almond flour with herbs and spices and adding our secret ingredient: nutritional yeast! Check it out below! . Loaded Cauliflower Mash . Ingredients: . Mash: 1 lb cauliflower, chopped into large pieces 2 Tbl fresh garlic ¼ c EVOO ½ tsp sea salt . Almond Parmesan: 1 c almond meal, lightly toasted 1 Tbl nutritional yeast ½ tsp fresh thyme, chopped ½ tsp sea salt ¼ tsp black pepper, ground . COMBINE all ingredients together, it should remind you of a classic Italian garnish 🇮🇹 . Toppings: applewood smoked bacon (be sure to get a @whole30approved bacon!) julienne scallions roasted cauliflower florets almond parmesan . Instructions: ROAST the garlic in the olive oil until it is golden brown, being careful not to burn it SET the roast garlic aside BOIL the cauliflower until it is fork tender STRAIN off the cauliflower, being sure to discard as much water as possible BLEND the cauliflower, garlic, oil, and salt together (we recommend an immersion blender!) ADJUST the seasoning to your taste. You may want a little more salt (or black pepper). GARNISH the mash with the toppings INVENT new toppings! Cauliflower mash is versatile; let your imagination run wild. #Whole30 #Whole30Recipes #BouquetOfCauliFlowers #MashtonKutcher


Hey guys! It’s Josh from @kitchfix with a PALEO BOLOGNESE recipe that holds a special place in my heart. Secret ingredient? You guessed it: Cashews! . In the first restaurant I ever worked at, the head chef loved to create this dish. It is truly a sauce that takes a lot of love and attention and you can taste that in the final product. I learned how to cook and build flavors through this dish. 🍅 . For our @whole30 version, we skip the red wine, and instead of adding cream and cheese at the end, we use nutritional yeast and cashew milk. Try it out for yourself - I think you’ll love the rich flavors over any spiralized veggie! . Paleo Bolognese . Components: zucchini, spiralized yellow squash, spiralized spaghetti squash, roasted . Pasture-raised Chicken Sausage: 1 lb pasture-raised chicken, ground 2 ea garlic cloves, minced ½ tsp fennel seed, ground ¼ tsp chili flake 1 tsp sea salt ½ tsp black pepper, ground ¼ tsp oregano, dry ¼ tsp thyme, fresh, chopped .

Instructions: HEAT a large sauce pot over medium heat SWEAT the garlic and onions in the olive oil ADD the chicken sausage to the party and sautee until cooked through WORK the salt and spices into the sausage mix to draw out more flavor COVER the mixture with the tomato product and vinegar SIMMER for 30 minutes LIQUEFY the cashews and the water in a high powered blender until smooth and add nutritional yeast NO SERIOUSLY, KEEP BLENDING it should be smooth like silk POUR the cashew cream into the bolognese sauce and mix well FINISH the sauce with fresh chopped basil SERVE with the vegetable “noodles” of your choice 🍝 #Whole30 #Whole30Recipes
