Clean Eating Meal Prep Guide (with Whole30 Meal Plan) – Weekly Meal Prep tips featuring clean, whole food recipes with a bonus meal plan and shopping list for Whole 30 program followers or those wishing to kick start a clean-eating lifestyle!
Who’s ready for a reset?? My next round of Whole30 begins January 2 and I would love to have you join me! For the next 4 weeks, my normal Clean Eating Meal Prep Guide will be Whole30 focused with a Whole30 Meal Plan, Prep Guide, and shopping list. Be sure to also check out my recipe archives for more Whole30/Paleo inspired recipes and watch for plenty of new recipes throughout the month!
You should know that I have a husband and two kids so everything I make will be family friendly with simple ingredients! Also, many of my recipes are made in the Instant Pot(which I highly recommend for meal prep purposes and just in general!) but if you don’t have one, that’s okay too. Although, what are you waiting for??!? It’s life changing!!
So a little bit about Whole30…I have had great results in the past with this program. And I couldn’t feel more ready to reset after all the holiday indulging. If you are new to the Whole30 plan, I highly recommend checking out the book The Whole 30: The 30 Day Guide to Total Health and Food Freedom. Huge disclaimer: It’s not for everyone and it’s definitely not easy! But if you struggle with feeling tired all the time, have regular digestive issues you can’t pinpoint, are pre-diabetic, or just need a “reset”, then it is a worthy read. The Whole30 concept aims to eat only clean, unprocessed foods for 30 days, much like a Paleo diet. After the 30 days are up, certain food groups are slowly reintroduced in order to determine their true effect on your system.
The following sample menu is for anyone who wants to eat healthier, regardless if you choose to follow the Whole 30 plan. I hope you find it helpful for kick starting those 2018 health goals!
I created this printable template for you to fill in your own whole30 meal plans or feel free to follow along with my menu! Here is the Printable template: Whole30 Meal Plan & Shopping List Template
