30 Days Of Whole30 Meals
Want to know how I survived my Whole30 adventures? With a few key ingredients, a bit of planning, a whole bunch of simplicity and tons of tasty Whole30 meals!
I survived! Yes, I did!
If you read my post on 5 Things I Learned From Doing Whole30, then you have already seen quite a few of my Whole30 meals and have some insight into how the 30 days went for me! If you haven’t read it yet, I suggest reading it HERE first before diving into the food!
When I finally committed to a date to start Whole30, I knew I needed to go into those 30 days with a plan, so I didn’t get bored!
I needed to make sure I had plenty of protein options on hand:
I stocked my freezer with:
Applegate organic hot dogs
Trader Joe’s turkey burgers
Brat Hans chicken sausages ahi tuna (this was a splurge for me!).
Ahi tuna (this was a splurge for me!)
Next up was deciding what fresh veggies and fruits I wanted to have on hand. I chose things that I could quickly #MealPrep on Sunday to ensure that the week was easy, and my meals were still delicious!
My ‘go-to’ veggies (and Meal Prep items) included:
Japanese Sweet Potatoes
Orange & Purple Cauliflower
Green Beans (in moderation – it’s summer and I couldn’t resist!)
Strawberries, blueberries, nectarines, apples
Veggies made up the bulk of my Whole meals, as you can see! I didn’t eat as much fruit as I thought I would. I stuck mostly with berries for meals and then apples and nectarines if I needed a quick snack (which wasn’t very often). I presliced all of my vegetables on Sunday (as you can see above) and then cooked them up so I could have a meal together in minutes! The picture above also shows my favorite go-to meal prep protein, shredded 5280meat tri-tip roast which I did in the crockpot every Sunday! (I am addicted, what can I say!)
- One 5280meat tri-tip roast
- balsamic dressing (not malt balsamic)
- dijon mustard
- garlic powder
- onion powder
- Add all ingredients into your crockpot
- Cook on high 4-6 hours or low 6-8 hours
I also did a double check of my cabinets to see what I had on hand to give flavor to my Whole30 meals and what I needed to possibly buy:
The items I had on hand before my shopping trip included:
La Croix Water
Frontier Veggie Pepper Seasoning
Braggs Organic Sprinkle
Coconut Chai Tea
*These items were used only on a very rare occasion when I needed something quick for a day out or a road snack. Whole30 advises that bars, etc. be used only in cases of emergency.
After my initial haul, the only items I needed to restock were my fresh fruits and veggies, which I was able to do bi-weekly.
So, now I am sure you are wondering, what the heck did I do with all of these items? Are you ready? Here are 30 days of Whole30 meals! 30 breakfast, 30 lunch and 30 dinner!
a.k.a – my favorite meal of the day!
a.k.a – my second favorite meal of the day
a.k.a – the meal I was most lazy with because I normally eat late
WOW!!! Looking at all of that food amazes me and reminds me of how many cold meals I ate just to make sure I got a picture of it for you! 😉 Do you still want all the meal details?
