Meal Planning: Whole30 Week 2

by jennifer14. April 2013 06:17

This is Week 2 of the Whole30. I’ve pinned a bunch of Whole30 friendly recipes and I’m ready to share my meal plan with you, but first a quick re-cap of week 1.

Week 1 went okay. I stayed on plan but I’m much more tired than I thought I would be. I didn’t take a nap any day last week, and have been going at my normal pace, but I think not drinking as much coffee is having a greater impact than I thought it would. Doing a WOD first thing in the morning (9am) also seemed to help get the blood flowing and wake me up a bit. It's also been challenging to eat lunch. I have a Pre-workout snack of 2 hard-boiled eggs, go to the box, come home around 10:30am and that's when I have meal 1. And then I have to pick the kids up from school at 3pm, and Whole30 recommends 5-6 hours between meals, so that puts me eating lunch at 3:30ish, but at that time I'm in dinner making mode. I need to figure out a better plan with this because skipping lunch or eating late is not ideal. That would put me eating dinner at 8:30pm, and that's too late. Suggestions needed and welcomed!!

I got some coconut milk, no sugar added, <1g of sugar per serving, so I’m adding that to my coffee starting today! I need my coffee!! And it is also a healthy fat, so WINNING. Week 2 is also supposed to be the week that tiger blood kicks in. I am really looking forward to that. I am planning on doing a little landscaping in the backyard this week, so some extra energy will be much appreciated.

The meals I cooked last week were so good!! James and the kids really liked the burgers, meatballs, and garlic shrimp. I did too. Those were all big hits! I also perfected the hard-boiled egg, so now I'm eating beautifully colored eggs instead of ones that have a grey or green yolk.

I’m craving Italian this week, so I’ve added a couple Whole30 friendly meals with an Italian flavor! Any recipe that calls for beef, I will sub lean ground turkey in its place.

Here is this week’s Whole30 menu:

Monday: Spaghetti Sauce with Zucchini Noodles

Tuesday: Damn Fine Chicken

Wednesday: Garbage Stir-Fry with Curried Cabbage

Thursday: Zucchini Lasagna

Friday: Paleo cauliflower rice with ground turkey and veggies

 

If you've done the Whole30 how have you worked through some of the issues??

I've never tried the Whole30 but I've heard great things about it.

Stone maintains her enviable figure by following the low-carb GI (Glycemic Index) Diet. If you help someone move furniture or do community service moving wood or cleaning up heavy things then this would be better than doing static weight training in the gym. A diet means what you eat should be in sync with each other, and have balance.
