Meal Planning And Prep: Whole30 Week 2

Another week of the Whole30 is complete! As I said on Wednesday, I am starting to get the hang of this more and more each day. So, here’s what I planned and prepped for last week.

Here is what I prepped last weekend:

-sliced peppers

-roasted spaghetti squash

-made frittata

-cooked ground turkey

-roasted broccoli and sweet potatoes

-cooked meatballs (to freeze)

-washed and stored berries

-cut up broccoli

-cooked butternut squash

-sliced cucumber

-made paleo ketchup

I also ended up baking the apple chips later on Sunday, and Rob grilled chicken on our indoor grill as he always does. I took the above picture before the apples or chicken was done!

If you have done the Whole30 before (or are doing it now), did you find that it got easier each day?

What’s on your meal plan for the week?

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

    • Very true- Since I am about 2 weeks in I am thinking about repeating some things, but I also want to keep trying as much new stuff as possible. So far I don’t think we have had any failed meals so I am happy about that! There were definitely some winners too that we will go back to even after the Whole30 is over!

    • I think the hardest part is the prep work and the realizing that I still had more to do throughout the week for certain meals! We have also been running out of food quicker because we are eating at home all the time!

    • It helps to me to know what meat I need to freeze and which I can leave in the fridge. I also plan for easier meals on days when I know I will be home later. I also like to spread out similar meals, so if we are eating sweet potatoes more than once I try not to do it back to back. Otherwise I don’t think it matters much!

    • I’ve really been enjoying finding new recipes to try! It’s amazing how many great whole30 meals there are.

    • That would be great! Reading the book is definitely important. I wish I had read it more recently but I have been using the whole30 website as a great source when I have questions. And there are so many great blogs with whole30 recipes and tips as well! It definitely makes it a little easier.

  1. Looks like a great plan for the week ahead! I’m planning to make apple jalapeño turkey burgers, a meatloaf, and salmon cakes (basically Nom Nom Paleo’s tuna cakes), along with leftover flank steak and other odds and ends. Feels good to have a plan in motion for Whole30.

    • Your meals sound really good! I always forget about meatloaf for some reason but its so good and I love having leftovers! Enjoy your week!

    • I think white potatoes would work well as long as you can get them soft enough! Maybe just cut them smaller so they cook faster? I hope they turn out well if you give them a try!
      But seriously, he doesn’t like sweet potatoes?!!?

    • It’s so true! If I don’t prep my week of food gets really boring. Its great to have a plan and be ready for a busy week!

  2. I am TRYING to branch out a tiny bit from my standard 3 meals this week, haha.

    I bought pre-diced butternut squash that I’m going to bake along with some diced sweet potato and see how that goes! Exciting times in my house, haha.

    • I agree that its so important to have veggies available! Anything I can do on the weekend to save time during the week is a huge help!

    • I think the meal planning/prepping is kind of addicting! Now when I don’t do it I really regret it. During the whole30 I do more than usual but it definitely helps with staying on track!

    • Thanks! Some weeks it can feel like a real burden but then I just do less. Usually it takes about 2 hours.

    • Probably not! But I will definitely continue to use it as a guideline for how I eat. But I don’t like feeling like I’m not “allowed” to eat certain things when I want to. And I need peanut butter and wine back in my life:)

    • To be honest I feel like I learned a lot more when I initially started trying to eat paleo last year. But as I have been more “strict” with whole30 I am much more aware of EVERYTHING in my food and its opened my eyes to everything that has added sugars or oils! I think I will also notice what foods don’t make me feel as good when I start added things back in once its over.
