Whole30 Diet: 30 Day Meal Plan

30 Days of Whole30 Meals – Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner

Many people new to Paleo start with a Whole30 challenge. I know I did. It completely changed the way I look at food and has forever made me grateful for almond milk and avocados! If you’re doing your first Whole30 or your 20th, a great way to accomplish your goal and not fall off the wagon is to have a plan. I’ve got just the thing to help you out – 30 Days of Whole30 Meals!

Using Weeknight Paleo as the basis for lunches and dinners and supplementing breakfast ideas from some of my favorite Paleo bloggers, this 30 day guide will keep you on track and make meal planning a cinch for your Whole30 challenge. If you have a copy of Weeknight Paleo, you already know the make-ahead schedule gives you a head start on weeknight dinners and the shopping list is a great foundation for the meal planning. If you don’t have a copy of Weeknight Paleo, you can download a free sample from the home page (complete with full Week One recipes, make-ahead schedule, and shopping list) or download an eBook for just $14.95. All the same content, half the price. And the ability to reprint recipes, when your favorite meatball sauce splatters on the page.

Whole30 Dinner - Paleo Pulled Pork and Home Fries
Oct 1 – Oct 2 all-day
Weeknight Paleo – Slow-Cooker Pulled Pork with Stellar Sweet Potato Home Fries  http://paleosavvy.com/paleo-slow-cooker-pulled-pork-recipe/  I love this recipe! For compliance with Whole30, you’ll need to make a minor adjustment and omit the honey and molasses from the barbeque sauce, but don’t worry it still tastes great! Any leftover sauce can be stored in the fridge for up to 2 weeks. I suggest using it to create a scrumptious barbeque chicken dinner later in the month.
Whole30 Lunch - Mediterranean Tuna Salad
Oct 1 – Oct 2 all-day

Whole30 Dinner - Asian Five-Spice Chicken w Matchstix Salad
Oct 3 – Oct 4 all-day
Weeknight Paleo – Asian Five-Spice Chicken with Matchstix Salad (pg 13) A great juxtaposition, fresh crunchy fruits and vegetables with warm, spicy sauteed chicken tenders. For the Whole30 challenge, I suggest omitting the Szechuan sauce and substituting ghee for the Grass-fed butter used to finish the chicken. The rub on the chicken will give some heat and a huge flavor boost, so you won’t miss the sauce as much.
