Whole30 Menu- Week 1

Whole30- Week 1 ❤

 

Quick & Easy Meals for a Busy Family

This will be my third time doing a Whole30. To say we need this right now is an understatement. This last year was AWESOME because we had our little JJ, but our commitment to cooking meals at home has been hugely lacking. This Whole30 is going to be challenging  because time seems to disappear with a baby and both of us working. Which is why I have created a menu full of quick, easy meals. We will also have one larger slow cooker meal once a week so we can stretch that through multiple days as well.

Snacks for “Hangry Hours”

There are snacks listed that will be prepared ahead of time. But we also have a few other snacks in the house to ward off “emergency hangry” hours. Hardboiled eggs, kale chips, larabars, turkey meat, smoked salmon etc…

Preparing for the Week

  1. Saturday or Sunday: Grocery Shop
  2. Sunday or Monday: Pre-Cut Yams, zucchini, onion, raw bacon for quicker cooking during mornings with Hash on the menu
    1. I have the veggies tossed into a larger plastic container  in the fridge with a small amount of water to keep them fresh. Bacon is in a second container.
  3.  Sunday: Pre-Make Frittata Muffins [2x recipe]
    1. I love the “muffin” idea because they are SO easy to just grab a couple, throw a glob of guac, salsa, and voila breakfast complete.
  4. Sunday: Pre-mix Nut & Dried Fruit
    1. Homemade is so much cheaper and it takes three seconds to make. Throw it all into a big bag or fill small lunch baggies for ready-to-go snacks for work.
