I'm planning on starting Oct. 19th too! I wanted to start sooner, but have a colonoscopy (50 yr old must do) this Thursday, so I had to wait until that was over with. I've made a handful of soups over the past month and have been routinely freezing a quart or two per batch. I've done a couple of Whole30s previously, but it's been a while. I'm ready to get back on track.

I prepare a lot of my meals by just throwing things together. But, I do love me a good recipe to break things up. These are my most frequent and most favorites recipes!
Golden Cauliflower Soup: http://meljoulwan.com/2012/10/24/golden-cauliflower-soup/ (I make a double batch and use this as a way to add veggies to my breakfast) Spinach and Artichoke Twice Baked Potatoes: https://www.paleorunningmomma.com/twice-baked-potatoes-paleo-whole30-vegan/ (this is one of my all-time favorite recipes ever) Salisbury Steak Meatballs: https://www.paleorunningmomma.com/paleo-salisbury-steak-meatballs-whole30/ (this might just be the best gravy I've ever had) Sesame Chicken: https://40aprons.com/whole30-sesame-chicken/ (this tastes like the real deal (i.e., like the stuff from my favorite Chinese place) Hmmm... I think that's it for now! In general, my favorite recipe authors are Paleo Running Momma and Mel Joulwan! I highly encourage you to check them out for some new and delicious recipes!
Best wishes to you!

Me! Day 1 of round 3. Early last year, I did my first round to try and combat chronic vertigo which had defied any diagnosis or treatment and was getting to the point I was thinking of stopping full time work. Within 3 weeks of my first round, it was gone. I stayed mostly compliant and did another full round around May but then backslid badly at the rear of last year and now the vertigo is back, so so is W30!
I was going to prep on the weekend, but I was feeling crappy and so I did the minimum - made lunches and mayo, but hoping I'll feel better after a week on it and really knock off my food prep this coming weekend.

This is my 4th Whole30. I did my first one a few years ago and stuck with it for about two years. My sugar dragon mixed with menopause took a toll on me over the past six months (I gained weight and have achy joints again), and I'm finally ready to get back to eating healthy and feeling good!
I started prepping food here and there over the past week and have done a ton of cooking today. My husband is going keto, so not as strict as me, but he'll be eating clean which will be soooo helpful!
Did anyone else start today?
