Meal Planning and Prep: The End of the Whole30

I’m just popping in as usual on Saturday morning to share my meal planning and prep from the past week! Our Whole30 ended on Tuesday, so of course for Rob that meant buying chocolate chip cookies on Sunday in preparation for the big day when he could eat sugar again. I’ll admit that I bought a bar of dark chocolate as my “indulgence” this week. I didn’t want to bake last weekend and then not be able to eat it while it was fresh!

weekly meal planning and food prep

 So here was our meal plan for last week:

Sunday: Paleo Turkey Chili

Monday: Salmon, baked potatoes, broccoli/cauliflower/carrot mix

Tuesday: Rosemary Chicken with Zucchini

Wednesday: Burgers, sweet potato fries, green beans

Thursday: Paleo meatballs with spaghetti squash and spinach

Friday: Out

Saturday: Celebrating Rob’s sister’s baby shower!

Breakfasts: Egg, bacon, and veggie frittata

Lunches: Leftovers, salads with grilled chicken or steak, roasted veggies 

Other: plantain chips, fruit, baby carrots, almond butter. Oh and chocolate chip cookies and dark chocolate:)

meal prep

Here is what I prepped last weekend:

-cooked 2 batches of meatballs to freeze

-roasted spaghetti squash (also froze it since it was for later in the week)

-cooked steak for salads

-Rob grilled chicken on indoor grill

-washed and slices cucumber and pepper

-washed and store berries

-roasted sweet potatoes, butternut squash, zucchini and broccoli

-made plantain chips

-baked frittata

-baked 2 potatoes

I did most of the prep last Saturday but saved a few things for Sunday which was less overwhelming. Isn’t it kind funny how our meal plan pretty much looks exactly the same even though the Whole30 is over? Maybe I’ll get back to baking paleo treats again one of these days. 

What was the best meal you ate last week?

Do you seem to make the same things every week?

I’ll also be linking up with Mommy Run Fast and Jill Conyers for their meal planning link-up!

    • I don’t feel like the frittatas keep me as full as cooking eggs in the morning but for days when I am short on time its a great option!

    • Exactly! I’ve been happy enough eating this way and feeling good so I will likely continue while adding back in a few other things on occasion.

    • I was actually able to make it to Friday before my first glass on wine! The week was so busy and I was so tired that I wanted to wait until I could truly enjoy it:)

    • We had it the night of the Super Bowl and it was perfect! And then I took the leftovers to work the next day which was a nice change from the salads I usually eat!

  1. I tend to cycle trough the same meals from week to week. Every now and then I’ll crave something new and switch it up, but I’m a pretty picky eater and I’m usually satisfied with my favorites.

    • I usually do the same thing unless I force myself to try something new! Or I go through phases where I make the same things week after week before switching it up.

    • I definitely prefer homemade burgers to the frozen ones! Although it is nice to keep some in the freezer in case of emergencies:)

    • Thanks! It is much easier to make the same things that you know and love, but once in a while its fun to change things up!

    • I wish I had realized you lived here! We don’t get out here very often because its so difficult to get flights from Baltimore to Northwest Arkansas. But now that my sister-in-law is expecting a baby in April we hope to come visit more often! I love running around here and this weather is amazing! I think today we might just take a short walk before heading to the airport later this morning…its probably time for a rest day, although I am very tempted to run!

    • Whole30.com has just about everything you need to know about it! Good luck with your meal planning!

    • Thanks! The frittata was good…love just tossing together random veggies and seeing what happens!
