This will be a game changer for you, as the hardest part of doing a Whole30 is all of the prep work that is needed for true to access.
Before starting your Whole30 diet meal plan...
- Educate yourself & prepare accordingly
During your Whole30, do not recluse yourself from social outings and gatherings. If you’re planning a dinner date or heading out to a new restaurant with some coworkers or friends, look up their menu online. You can take a look at all of their options and figure out what is compliant on the menu.
What’s even better is you can call the restaurant if you have any questions or concerns about certain items. You will walk into that restaurant with a plan and executing that plan will be stress-free.
- Get friends and family on board
There is nothing better than having the support of friends and/or family members while on a Whole30. This is especially true if it is your first go around. If you’ve been invited for a night out with close friends who may poke fun at your new lifestyle, ask them if you can invite along your sister, who just so happens to be Whole30’ing with you!
Having that support system right by your side when tempted to make unwise decisions will prove to be tremendously helpful. In fact, print out a copy of this Meal Plan & Trader Joe's Whole30 Shopping List and invite your support system to come grocery shopping with you.
How about hosting a Whole30 dinner party at your house? This would be a great way to show your friends & family what you've been up to. After seeing how many delicious things they can eat during a Whole30, they may become tempted to join you for your next round!
- Share this Whole30 meal plan with others
Those friends and family members are going to feel like they want to be extra supportive if you show them all of the delicious kinds of recipes you get to eat during your Whole30!
Go ahead and send over this meal plan to them. I guarantee you that once they see all of the things you *can* eat, they're going to forget about all of the things that you can't.
Tips & Tricks
FIRST THINGS FIRST - Print out the Whole30 Meal Plan shopping and pantry lists. That way, you can go through the recipes and check out what you already have at home and what you'll need to purchase. Bust out that dusty highlighter of yours!
Plan your grocery trips for twice a week. This ensures that you'll be planning at least 2-3 days ahead of time, yet still keeping the possibility of food spoilage very slim.
Wash, dry and cut all produce after you finish grocery shopping and store in the refrigerator.
Be sure to portion out meals in to-go containers when you're finished cooking. That will make grabbing breakfast, taking lunch to go and heating up dinner a whole lot easier!
Why TWO separate meal plans?
Meal Plan A
Stick to this meal plan during your Whole30. Every recipe is 100% compliant, with a wide variety of different fat, protein & carbohydrate sources to choose from.
Meal Plan B
Start this meal plan after your 30 days is up. Continue eating real, nutrient dense foods but begin experimenting with reintroductions during this time period.
I've created this Whole30 Meal Plan as a resource for both during and after your Whole30 has been completed. I get questions constantly about what to do after your Whole30 is over.
For 30 days, you have completely eliminated foods that both scientific literature and Melissa Hartwig's clinical experience have deemed as the most commonly problematic in 1 of 4 areas- your cravings, metabolism, digestion, and immune system (Whole30 Cookbook, 1).
After your Whole30 is up, it is now time to start systematically reintroducing those foods you've cut out and now pay close attention to your experience.
This doesn't mean that you go from Meal Plan A to a junk food vacation.
You should still be eating whole, nutrient dense meals (which is where Meal Plan B comes into play).
However, you should be reintroducing those "less healthy" foods (i.e. dairy, gluten/grains, soy, etc.) one at a time and taking inventory of how you feel.
After reintroducing sugar (regardless if its in the form of coconut sugar, honey, etc.), do you experience fatigue or joint swelling?
After 30 days of elimination and spending some time with reintroduction, you will have a firm understanding of what foods are best for you, both physiologically and emotionally.
And that is exactly what this Whole30 meal plan was created and intended to do. If you're looking for a great place to get started, I recommend heading to this Whole30 Starter Kit!
