whole30 weekly menu plan: 01.06.13

MPM Logo

I made it through week one, and am starting to feel so much better. I can already tell I’ve got less inflammation and bloat going on. I did have a few rough days – there was one day when I lost all coordination and strength about 10 minutes into my workout and there was another when I tried to make coffee without actually putting in the grounds.

But it’s getting better, and I’m about 99.9% sure this Whole30 is actually going to be a Whole60. Interested in what this crazy thing is that has me excited I forgot how to make coffee? This post right here is all you need to know.

We have a semi-quiet week. One birthday and one kiddo starting at a new school, plus a few doctor’s appointments. I’m going to continue with the following template for a while – it’s just so easy to plug in meals:

  • 2 nights of soups/crockpot/slowcooker (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
Roasted tomato bisque
Bratwurst (locally made with Whole30 friendly ingredients from Wolfsen’s)

Tuesday
Crockpot Chicken with Gravy
Mashed Cauliflower (me – using half of the steamed cauliflower from the night before)
Mashed Potatoes (family)
Kale (trying it in the pressure cooker!)
Tossed Salad

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

Thursday
Bunless burgers with guacamole
Sweet Potato fries
Spinach

Friday
Birthday party for The Girl – we’ll be grilling

Saturday
Balsamic and Onion Pot Roast (trying it in the pressure cooker, which doesn’t scare me anymore)
Carrots

Sunday
The best chicken you’ll ever eat (that’s a pretty big boast for a recipe name – we’ll see!)
Whichever veggies need to be cooked!

  1. It all looks so good! And with a name like Best Chicken You’ll Ever Eat, how can you not try it!? I’ve never thought about brining chicken breasts before grilling, but it makes good sense. I’ll be anxious to hear if you think it’s the best, too.

    Thank you for posting your progress and meal ideas. This sounds like a great plan! Everything sounds delicious, especially the bunless burgers with guacamole – yum! And I am going to have to try the “Best Chicken…Ever…” I will continue to follow your posts in hopes that I may gain the courage to start the plan, too. Thanks again, Resa ~ Pitcher and Plate

  3. Stopping by from Organizing Junkie’s Menu Plan Monday today!
    Pinterest is a fantastic resource for recipes! I made a banana cake, onion dip and a turkey soup last week…all found on Pinterest. They’re now family favorites!
    Happy Birthday! I’m turning 51 this month and am still deciding on what I would like for my birthday dinner. Grilling sounds like a good candidate.
    It looks like there’s going to be some delicious meals enjoyed this week.
