Following the Whole30 program doesn’t mean I have to be deprived of my favorite foods. It just means I have to be more creative and work around the things I am trying to avoid. I also enjoy tricking my family into eating healthy Whole30 compliant food.

When I was craving fried rice I made this faux Cauliflower Fried Rice that has become a family favorite. (Even the family members that don’t follow the Whole30 program love it.)

When my daughter asked for Orange Chicken I was able to pull the meal together without anyone knowing it was totally Whole30 compliant. Another win for me at the dinner table.

What I love most about this Whole30 Egg Roll recipe is that the flavors from the sesame oil, rice vinegar, garlic and ginger are amazing. Also, you can make endless variations depending on what vegetables and meats you have on hand. (Meat is optional.)

Serve up your Whole30 Egg Roll in a bowl and dig in with your chopsticks or in my case a chork (chopstick fork) which can be purchased online {affiliate link}. If you happen to have any leftovers, the egg roll in a bowl reheats well and tastes just as good the next day.
