Week 4 Whole30 Meal Plan – Just One More Week!

Week 4 Whole30 Meal Plan – Just One More Week!

Week 4 Whole30 Meal Plan I consider this the last week of the Whole30 (even though it is 9 days long!).  The whole idea of having to go into Week 5 was just too much for me, so the Week 4 Whole30 Meal Plan is just a long one.  🙂  There are most definitely some repeats this week of my favs, but also a couple of new ones, including two meals out – on purpose!  It is almost impossible to cook…

Week 3 Whole30 Meal Plan – Easy Meals for a Tough Week

Week 3 Whole30 Meal Plan  We just finished week 3 and let me tell you… This has been the hardest Whole30 week I have had yet.  And this is my third time through!  I have had serious cravings this week and busy, busy days.  So my focus this week was on EASY recipes.  These don’t take much planning or time to prepare because I just didn’t have it in me this week.  I’ll tell you more about my dramatic Saturday in…

Week 2 Whole30 Meal Plan – Bring on the Potatoes!

Week 2 Whole30 Meal Plan Woohoo!  You made it to Week 2!  It gets better… I promise.  So in our Whole30 world, there were less eggs this week.  But I might have a problem with roasted fingerling potatoes.  I just couldn’t get enough of them!  As you will see in my meal plans for this round of The Whole30, I tend to reuse certain recipes.  Because they are yummy and my family likes them.  Plus, it makes cooking every night a…

Week 1 Whole30 Meal Plan

Week 1 Whole30 Meal Plan

Week 1 Whole30 Meal Plan This round, I am posting our meal plans AFTER we do them.  This guarantees that you don’t get dud recipes, and you know they are somewhat realistic because we just DID them.  And we don’t just sit around cooking all day… Both of us work full time and have a toddler to distract us at home.  So if we can do it… You get the gist. Here was our week 1 Whole30 meal plan… We ate…

Whole30 Meal Plan – Reintroduction, Part Deux

Whole30 Meal Plan – Reintroduction, Part Deux

Whole30 Meal Plan – Reintroduction, Part Deux Okay, guys… this is it!  The last week of planned Whole30 meals.  After this, you are on your own!!!  This week, we introduce two of the biggest culprits in causing inflammation – dairy and gluten.  They both noticeably affect how I feel.  Please pay close attention to how you feel after introducing new foods – both during that day and the two days following.  Then, at least you know the consequences you may…

Whole30 Meal Plan – Week 5 & Reintroduction

Whole30 Meal Plan – Week 5 & Reintroduction

Whole30 Meal Plan – Week 5 & Reintroduction Does anyone else sing “Reintroduction” to the tune of the reproduction song from Grease?  Just me?  Oh well.  Reintroduction is probably THE most IMPORTANT part of the Whole30.  You have been through 30 days of eliminating many inflammatory foods, letting your digestive system heal, and learning to burn fat instead of sugar for energy.   Now, you have a clean slate to truly test foods and see how they affect you!  Don’t ruin…

Whole30 Meal Plan – Week 4

Whole30 Meal Plan – Week 4

Whole30 Meal Plan – Week 4 It’s the Last Full Week!!!!  You should be feeling pretty good by now, or at least not feeling the negative effects from the first few weeks anymore.  You also might be really tired of eggs.  I know I am, so I’m back to my prosciutto muffins for breakfast (cause the salt makes it all good) and I’m focusing on salmon cakes and leftovers for lunches.  Some repeat recipes are happening this week, because they…

Whole30 Meal Plan – Week 2

Whole30 Meal Plan – Week 2 Thanks for sticking with us through week 1!  I hope the withdrawal symptoms weren’t too harsh.  I promise that it does get better… typically not this coming week (sorry) but it gets MUCH better after that!  Last week I included many of my favorite Whole30 recipes because I wanted you to see how yummy this way of eating can be.  I hope you enjoyed them.  This week, I have thrown in a few that…

Whole30 Meal Plan – Week 1

Whole30 Meal Plan – Week 1

Whole30 Meal Plan – Week 1 In my opinion, the key to a successful Whole30 is one thing – meal planning.  Cooking within guidelines does not have to be difficult, and there are a million recipes out there to add variety to your Whole30 experience!  However, it is super easy to find yourself at 1pm – starving and with no meal in your lunch bag.  So you give up and grab a sandwich and say “I’ll start tomorrow/next week/next month”….
