whole30 weekly menu plan: 12.31.12

MPM Logo

I don’t know about you, but it feels sooo good to get back to meal planning…and knowing that I’m actually going to follow them. These past few weeks have been an ugly mess of bad eating, lots of meals out and sugar (and other far worse stuff I shouldn’t eat) in everything.

This week’s meal plan is going to be interesting. I’m back on a Whole30 (that’s going to be a Whole60 as of today). I’m also working to start transforming what the rest of the family eats, with a lot of grace and an understanding that it’s going to be a slow transition. I’m so thankful to finally have a quiet week to focus in on making better choices!

I’m also going to continue with the following – it’s just so easy to plug in meals:

  • 2 nights of soups/crockpot (bonus points for soups in the crockpot)
  • 1 brinner (breakfast for dinner)
  • 1 stir fry
  • 3 nights:  meat and two (meat and two veggie sides).

Whole30 Breakfast Options:

  • Scrambled eggs (it’s the only way I eat them)
  • Sausage
  • Mashed butternut squash
  • Fruit
  • Chicken and apple sausage
  • Blueberry “cereal” – blueberries, pecans, cinnamon, coconut flakes and coconut milk

Whole30 Lunches:

Whole30 Dinners:

Monday
Broccoli Beef
White rice (family – soaked, then cooked with homemade chicken stock)
Cauliflower rice (me – I’ll get around to posting my method soon)

Tuesday
Chicken soup (I’m all about the dill!)

Wednesday
Crockpot Chicken with Gravy
Mashed Cauliflower (me – using half of the steamed cauliflower from the night before)
Mashed Potatoes (family)
Tossed Salad

Thursday
Bunless burgers with guacamole
Sweet Potato fries
Spinach

Friday
Tri Tip (on the grill)
Roasted root vegetables (olive oil, garlic, salt and pepper)

Saturday
Roasted tomato bisque
Bratwurst (locally made with Whole30 friendly ingredients from Wolfsen’s)

Sunday
dinner out – the Pastor is taking a much needed Sunday off and we’re hoping to do a bit of adventuring, but it will definitely be as Whole30 as possible!

    I was right with you these last two weeks! Feels so good to get back to meal planning! Found you from OrgJunkie and we do Paleo/GF too (well minus the hubs- he’s asking for homemade bread for sandwiches). I just notified the family that we are getting back on track starting today! I plan for a month, so I’m still collecting ideas. Thanks for sharing and I’m following you now, so I hope you stick with it! ;o) I’m definitely doing the Whole30, maybe I’ll join you for a Whole60 too!

  2. Hi! Just found your blog through Holly and immediately added you to my list of blogs to read. I’m terrible at meal planning. Thankfully I live a few blocks from the grocery store so I can easily run to get things but I know I can be more efficient if I plan ahead. Looking forward to getting more tips from you :)
