Here are the recipes that I tried during the first week of Whole30. I think it’s important to get creative and make dishes full of flavor that you are looking forward to (especially since week one away from grains, sugars, etc. can be challenging)! Meal planning is key to setting yourself up for success.

Breakfast (I ate the same thing each day during week one)

Lunch & Dinners 

Meal Prep Sunday:

Oven:

  1. Roast all vegetables (sweet potatoes, brussels, cauliflower)
  2. Bake salmon for salad
  3. Roast butternut squash
  4. Make meatballs for Thai meatball recipe

Other:

  1. Wash all fruits and vegetables and chop as many as you can (within reason)
  2. Cut pineapple
  3. Spiralize zucchini noodles
  4. Pre-portion out snacks (nuts, veggies, fruit) into single serving bags or containers
    1. You can go ahead and portion out the roasted vegetables for the hash. In the morning all you need to do is cook your egg and go.
    2. Make your salmon salads
    3. You can make the butternut squash soup and store it (its easier to get the squash out of it’s flesh while it’s warm)
    4. Everything else should come together fairly quickly during the weeknights!
