Here’s your Whole 30 meal plan for week 2. Y’all. This meal planning is about to KILL ME. It’s taking absolutely forever because I’m having to find all new recipes (didn’t cook very Whole 30 compliant before), having to find things that we can feed all of us or alternatives for the littles, thinking through time & meal prep, plus stretching our budget as far as I can when the things that fill us up (meat and nuts) are pretty pricy. And in the end it IS costing us a bit more- about $30 more a week, but over the course of a month, that’s $120, which is nothing to sneeze at when you keep a tight budget. But, after about 2 1/2 hours, it’s finally done and I’m happy with it.
And that’s not to say I’m not happy with the Whole 30. I’m pretty satisfied so far. Yes, it’s hard. But I feel good. I’ve got more energy. Both my husband and I feel like we’re seeing things more clearly. And honestly, maybe this is just day 6 and not very “far in” talking, but it hasn’t been so bad. Except last night at a party. That was hard. (Casserole… chips and guacamole– and yes I ate the guac with a spoon–, alcohol, crackers/nuts/party food…) I’m loving the jump start I feel like this is giving me on my weight loss journey. Though I’m almost 100% sure we won’t maintain the Whole 30 as a lifestyle, I do think we’ll eat healthier. Try to eat more “real” foods. Just with some dairy and grains splashed in (I’m missing my homemade whole wheat pizza and our pasta nights).
So here’s your meal plan for download. —>HHH Whole 30 Meal Plan week 2
I’ve separated babies & adults for breakfast and lunch, but we share dinners. Babies breakfasts are all already cooked for the week, so that’s a weight off of my shoulders in the mornings. Have a great week!
Comment and let me know if you’re using the meal plan for your Whole 30! I’d love to know my loooooong hours of effort aren’t just benefitting me!
