Who’s ready for Week 2 of Whole30? My first week started off a little rocky. On New Year’s Eve (the night before starting Whole30), I went to bed early and ready to take on the challenge. I woke up in the middle of the night with food poisoning, which lasted the whole next day! I could only keep ginger ale, saltine crackers, and chicken noodle soup down so I had to postpone the start of my Whole30. I was able to start on January 2nd and so far it’s been great (I’m only 2 days in so still optimistic, ha!) I am loving all of the recipes so far and getting excited for the new ones planned for Week 2.
We have a few days this week where we will be out of the house during lunch so I account for that by making meals that don’t require heating (I’m looking at you Tuna Salad and Harvest Chicken Salad!) Also, we are taking Avery to see Sesame Street Live! on Sunday so we are planning our first meal out for Whole30! We haven’t chosen where to eat yet, but I will update once we do. Make sure to jot down all of your hectic schedules in the Notes section at the top of the meal plan to help you figure out your week! Also, for the two recipes that require a crockpot, make sure you have time to be home and cook the meals in the crockpot! I scheduled those for the days that work best for me, but you might have to switch days to accommodate your schedule.
Here is a list of items that are not included in the Grocery List, but needed for the following recipes. Double check that you have them before heading to the store! Also take a second to review the grocery list and check off any items that are already in your kitchen. 🙂
