I’m a little late in getting this out, but here is our meal plan for Week Four! For those of you who started on the 2nd, you only have a couple days left and will finish this week…YAY!
Do you have your plan for reintroduction ready? For more on the recommended reintroduction plans, see this post. I’ve done both, and I’m a fan of the Fast Track option, especially if it’s your first Whole30. If you have a few under your belt, then the Slow Roll might be a good option. Either way, having a plan in place is key to learn important things about your body from this experience. Don’t skip it!
Today marks Day 21 for me and I’m feeling great! I’m really glad we decided to do the Whole30 this month because the structure simplifies our weekly meal planning. A little extra planning on the front end, but it’s less to think about overall. I tend to cook more and we save money in the process!
Our dining out go-to’s this time around have been Origin, HG Sply Co (date night!), and Chipotle. (Favorite Whole30 friendly menu items can be found on my Whole30 Dining Guides.) On a few occasions, the Whole30 Approved Menu at Snap Kitchen has been a lifesaver for meals to go! I’ve been posting my meals and tips on instagram stories, so be sure to follow me there if you aren’t already…
Here are the links to recipes I’m using this week…a few repeating items, per the kids’ request! They love the steak fajitas with veggies, and even like to have them for breakfast the next day! I haven’t made the Paleo Pad Thai in a while, and I’m so looking forward to it, because it’s delicious…
Sunday: Meal Prep Basics
We decided to do a bigger prep for the week, to have things ready for breakfast and lunches. On Tuesday and Wednesday I’ll have more time to cook in the evenings so that is where I put the more time intensive meals. This is what we’re prepping today…
- Chicken Tenders, cooked in a little ghee, simply seasoned with salt and pepper
- Whole30 Mayo (for tuna and chicken salad) and Dump Ranch, with my immersion blender!
- Roasted Broccoli, baked at 425 for 20 minutes with avocado oil, minced garlic, salt, and pepper
- Roasted Potatoes, baked at 425 for 20-25 minutes, with avocado oil, salt, pepper, cumin, and paprika. I like to use the broil function during the last 5 minutes to get them a little crispy!
- Hard Boiled Eggs
This combo pleases everyone in the family! We set out all the fixings to build your own burger…lettuce wraps, tomato, avocado, onion, jalapeños/green chile, and more. A quick, easy dinner!
Tuesday: Paleo Pad Thai with Chicken
This recipe has amazing flavor…you’ve got to try it, especially if you’re a Pad Thai fan! You can make the chicken and Sunshine Sauce ahead of time, or make it all at once. I’m going to make extra sunshine sauce to serve with the Asian Lettuce Wraps on Wednesday…yum!
My first time trying these, but they look quick and easy to make…I’ll keep you posted!
The kids requested these again and I didn’t argue…a family fave for sure! Love to make rice bowls with them, with cauli rice as the base, followed my steak and plenty of peppers, onions, and mushroom, topped with salsa and guacamole…
