Whole 30 – Week 2 Meal Plan

One week down! Three to go!

Having a meal plan and grocery list really helped me stay on track this week. I didn’t assign meals to individual days, so it gave me the flexibility to choose a meal based on what sounded good each day.

Seeing as it helped so much, I have another plan for Week 2, and am sharing here in case it helps anyone else!

If you haven’t heard of Whole30, I highly recommend you check out the book It Starts With Food and the whole30.com website. In short, you eat clean food for 30 days and cut out processed food along with food groups that people are most commonly allergic to. Then at then of 30 days they give you a reintroduction plan so you can evaluate how different foods effect your body. The goal is to change your relationship with food and food habits/cravings.

Whole 30 Week 2 Meal Plan

Note: I only meal plan dinners. I eat almost the same thing for breakfast every morning (eggs + another protein + veggies + healthy fat) and leftovers for lunch. Also, I only planned 6, because inevitably we end up doing something 1/week not at our house. If we do stay home I’ll cook up leftovers.

Snack ideas: cooked sweet potato, hard boiled eggs, almonds, carrots/celery/apple with almond butter

Week 2 Dinners & Recipes:

  • Crock Pot Carnitas [A], lettuce wrap, salsa: recipe here (*leave out the adobo)
  • Paleo Chili [B]: Recipe here (*make sure the canned tomatoes are sugar free)
  • Taj Majal Turkey Curry Paleo[C1]: Recipe here
  • Paleo Sweet Potato Soup With Bacon [D1], Homemade Ras el Hanout Spice [D2]: Recipes here
  • Damn Fine Chicken + Broccoli [E]: Recipe here
  • Basil Walnut Pesto Salmon with Brussel Sprouts or Asparagus [F]: Recipe here

Shopping List

I always find the most time consuming piece of meal planning is compiling the shopping list. I’ve done that already here. However, if you choose not to use one of the recipes above, I’ve assigned them letter codes so you can adjust accordingly on the shopping list. Remember, this is just the list for dinners. If you’re eating breakfast and snacks, you’ll need to add those as well.  It should also be noted that I’m cooking for 2 people but I usually cook like I’m feeding 4 (so that we eat have lunch the next day).
