The Whole 30 Diet
I recently finished the Whole 30 program with my family. If you know nothing about Whole 30, this book has a ton of great info and this website has even more! The basis idea is that for 30 days you cut out a ton of things and then start adding them back in once you’ve finished the 30 days. No sugar. No dairy. No grains. And so on. It’s not necessarily known to be the biggest weight loss diet but more about retraining your body and feeling better. And for me, that’s huge. Weight loss would be awesome but I’m really going for retraining my body how to eat and how to feel better.
You can check out my family’s Whole 30 results (4 adults) here. The results were eye-opening and life-changing!
Since I was already putting together my own meal plans, I figured I might as well share them with you. So here you go – a week 1 Whole 30 meal plan. And if you need more ideas, here’s a week 2 Whole 30 meal plan as well!
I’m weird when it comes to dieting and eating. I can’t eat the exact same thing every day. I know a lot of people (like my husband) can make muffin cups on Sunday and eat them all week long. I can’t. I need variety or I don’t eat anything. This meal plan is based on that preference and also so we vary the meat we eat.
If you like to eat the same thing multiple times, feel free to change it up and just eat the same thing every morning or multiple times a week. This is also based on not really having leftovers. I’m already cooking for four grown adults, so we really don’t have many leftovers for meals. Again, feel free to tweak it up as necessary if you know you’ll have leftovers. Lunch is a great time for leftovers!
I included a breakfast, lunch, and dinner for each day in my menu. I’ll be sharing a list of my favorite Whole 30 snacks soon so make sure to check back or sign up for my email list in the sidebar.

Whole 30 Shopping List
I put together this printable shopping list of everything you will need to make all of these meals. I didn’t put measurements because honestly the measurements will be totally dependent on how many people you’re cooking for, what size portions you eat, etc. But this should give you a good start when you’re hitting the grocery store!
