    I prepared a lot of food yesterday! But I noticed already that it won't last long!
    How many vegetables, eggs and greens do you usually buy to last a week?

    It doesn't have to take that long.  Grocery shopping aside, you should be able to prep a week's worth of "base food" in 2 hours or less, you just have to get the system going.  
     
    Here's a post I made in another thread about pre-cooking:
     
    In 25 minutes you can chop a fridge full of veggies (I did a butternut, four peppers, a bag of mushrooms, 5 onions) and then supplement with bagged spinach or kale, bagged coleslaw (make your own dressing or cook the shredded coleslaw and use as a "noodle" base), the bagged brocoli from Costco & a bag of snow peas.  Just before you start on the veggies, throw a dozen boneless skinless thighs on a greased cookie sheet into a 435F oven , throw some S&P, garlic and ginger powder at them bake them for 35 minutes.  Once the veggies are done and bagged, put two frying pans on the stove and put 2# of ground beef in one and 2# of ground pork in the other.  While those are sautéing, put a dozen eggs in a pot and start them hard boiling while you make a batch of immersion blender mayo and a batch of sunshine sauce.  And when that's done, your chicken thighs & ground meats should be done.
     
    So in about an hour you have about 6# of protein + a dozen eggs, two sauces and a fridge full of veggies and your "during the week" cooking should be nearly non existent.

    There are also lots of resources here on our forum about cooking in advance, a little google action will get you there, just google "Whole 30 meal prep" or "Whole30 advance cooking"

    I also planned to start on June 1st!
    I am in the process of moving, so I have the advantage that I can fill my pantry and fridge with compliant foods only!
     
    We can do this!
