You guys, we’re only a few days in and I’m feeling great! I will admit to a few headaches and a some irritability but I know that these will subside very quickly! I felt SO accomplished with all the prepping last Sunday and have really enjoyed not having to cook for an hour each night. With that in mind, for our Whole30 Meals Week 2, I decided to focus on recipes that could be prepped ahead of time. If you don’t like prepping as much as I do, you can cook most of these the day you are set to eat them! I’m also adding in an emergency meal – chocolate chili – that you can cook and freeze for unexpected events that leave you hungry and without food options. This has already happened to us! If you don’t think you need it, don’t worry about cooking it!
First things first, all the recipes for this week are located here:
Without further ado, here is our Whole 30 Meal Plan- Week 2:
What do you guys think? We have a few repeats from our Whole 30 Week 1 Meal Plan, and quite a few new recipes. I’m most looking forward to you all trying the Slow Cooker Kalua Pig! It’s one of our family favorites and so, so easy! These great Pancetta and Egg Muffin Cups, and Nom Nom Paleo’s Big O Bacon Burgers are absolutely delicious. I’m so excited for you guys to try these out!
** Here’s a fair warning Disclaimer for the meal plan: Sometimes the meals I put on the plan aren’t “full” meals in the eyes of the Whole30 program because they are lacking some portion that is necessary to create a balanced meal. They might be missing good fat, protein, or veggies. Mostly this happens because I don’t haven enough room to add them in my editing software and I put priority on listing the meals you might need a recipe for- so make sure that you read over the Whole30 Program Rules and are eating complete meals! **
Here is the week 2 Grocery List:
Before grocery shopping, make sure you check your pantry and reorder any items you might need. I had to reorder these:
I believe I have EVERYTHING we will need for the upcoming week but if you see anything that I’m missing, please let me know either in the comments or on my Facebook Page The Hungry Mommy or Instagram @the_hungry_mommy
Last but not least, the prepping guide:
I know that a lot of you have said that prepping is A LOT of work, and you are right. I still think it’s the best way to ensure that you stay on track throughout the week, though. If you have anyone available to help you prep, enlist their help! I had my mom helping chop and slice while my husband washed the dishes. I’m here to tell you, a dish washer can totally transform your prepping experience! Grab your husband, wife, children, and neighbors, anyone will do!
It’s only Day 3 for those of us in my January Whole30 Challenge but I’m still feeling pretty good! If you want to join in on the fun or have any questions along the way, give me a shout!
