    Not really... it's very fruit heavy.  We want you to eat a template meal of 1-2 palms of protein (actual chewed food), vegetables (2-3 cups that can include a fist sized serving of starchy carbs) and a fat source at every meal.
  2. Thanks

    Google is the best way to search this forum. Use 'whole30 + topic' and usually the first results are forum based results.
    Eggs would be fine for pre workout.  Post workout is ideally lean protein and starchy carb but unless you're an elite athlete trying to get that final bit of perfected recovery, as long as you eat protein after, even if it's a bit fattier like an egg with the yolk, that's fine.
    Smoothies are discouraged for all participants - from our Can I have guide: 
    Smoothies: We’d rather you didn’t
    This is a very popular question, with a very unpopular answer. Smoothies (generally made using lots of fruit) are technically compliant on your Whole30, but we strongly recommend against it. Food that you drink sends different satiety signals to your brain than food that you chew. So when you drink your meal, your brain isn’t getting the feedback it needs to tell your body that it’s had enough of what it needs. Plus, smoothies are generally really fruit-heavy, and starting your day off with a liquid sugar-bomb sets you up for cravings, hunger, and volatile energy levels throughout the day. In summary, we’d rather you just eat the food, and skip the smoothie.
