Whole30 Meal Template- Exactly What to Eat on Whole30

When talking to others on the Whole30 Journey, I hear the advice all the time that if we just eat compliant items, we will be fine. While only eating foods that are compliant is DEFINITELY a start, it’s not the point of the Whole30. The idea is to totally nourish your body through the food you put in it; and to do that, we have to be feeding it full of nutrients and vitamins at every meal. Simply eating a steak and potatoes 3 meals a day for 30 days, while technically compliant food choices, will not cure any physical ailments you have and certainly won’t deliver you the Tiger Blood we are all craving.  The Meal Template- a perfectly balanced Whole30 meal combines these components:  Protein: You should have 1-2 palm size servings of protein at each meal to take up abotu 1/33 of your plate.   Veggies: The rest of your plate- 2/3s- should be veggies.

Whole30 Meals- Week 2

Whole 30 Meal Plan - Week 2

You guys, we’re only a few days in and I’m feeling great!

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: Whole30 Meals and Recipes- Breakfast Whole 30 Meals and Recipes- Lunch/Dinner Whole30 Meals and Recipes- Sides and Snacks 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!
