    Freezer Meals

    I’m going to be having surgery in a few weeks and was hoping to find some recipes that I can make ahead of time that people have already tried as we all know some things just don’t freeze well. Thank you.
  2. Not sure if I should post this here or in reintroduction... I'm coming up on the end of my Whole30 and trying to map out my dairy reintro. Since this is my second go, I'm skipping reintroducing legumes and GF grains, and doing a dairy break down- lactose free, then grassfed, then conventional. Please send ideas for dairy heavy meals.
  3. Hello! I'm starting a whole30 in January and am looking for make ahead meal prep recipes. Ideally big batch recipes that can be cooked and frozen. I have the whole30 book but any additional recipes would be fantastic! Please share recipes and links here :)
  4. Hi all, Weird question--what can I bring for lunch that is physically compact? We have tiny shared work fridge. Today I brought a sandwich sized container and a mason jar sized container and they barely fit. Thanks!
  5. I'm on day 7 of my first Whole30. I came into it being used to eating twice a day and I think I'm starting to adjust to 3 meals, but I'm struggling to get a feel for how much food I should make for a day. I work long days so on a lot of days I eat breakfast at home, and pack lunch and dinner. The first few days I was eating two full sized meals and a little lunch, and struggling to eat it all. Yesterday though I got HUNGRY. I ate all the food I took to work, and was still hungry. I ended up having 2 Larabars and an entire liter of coconut water: not ideal, but that was all I could find complaint at the connivence store (why does all beef jerky need sugar?). So I packed up what I would consider three full meals for my next long day tomorrow, and it felt like a lot of food as I was planning and getting it ready but seeing it all sitting on the table it doesn't look like much. I attached a photo of tomorrows plan: Breakfast: asparagus, pork, and potato hash with hollandaise and an egg Lunch: spinach salad with spinach/artichoke spread, black olives, almonds, steak, and an avocado Dinner: chicken stuffed with spinach/artichoke and wrapped with prosciutto, roasted potatoes, leeks, and onions, and some fresh fruit I do ride a bike to work. I don't consider it a workout since it's only about 6.5 mostly flat miles, but maybe I need to add some food to eat as soon as I get off the bike? It's a good sign that my body is getting hungry, a lot of the time I eat because of the time of day and never actually feel hungry, but I don't want to end up super hungry and desperate at work again.
  6. Hello, I'm a single mother with two children and - between family, work and life - it's impossible to do the Whole30 without nearly complete weekly meal prep. After I wash/prep veggies & sauces for the week, I can cook breakfast/lunch/dinner each morning, but I do need to be able to follow a quick-reference plan. I don't have nearly enough time to figure it all out during the morning rush (or evening exhaustedness, esp after work, homework and bedtime rituals). I've gone online and, though there are recipes in various places, I REALLY need some help finding a full 30-day meal prep help. Part of my problem is that after being a vegetarian for 30 years, what I've read has convinced me that I ought to try meat again...and I don't know how to cook, spice, or prepare any kind of meat. So... Specifically, I need: Printable recipes that are complete meals (not mix and match side dishes). So if a recipe for breakfast is given, it will have protein, veggies and fat (not just the side veggies with the option to add protein). Printable shopping lists that go with the recipes A full 30-day plan Though I've looked online, full meals that come with shopping lists AND a printable version seem to be nonexistent. Can someone please help me? Thanks in advance!
  7. Breakfast: Bacon Spinach Quiche Lunch: Mexican Stir Fry Grocery list (for one, double amounts for two) Produce 1 onion 1 bell pepper 3 carrots 1 bag broccoli florets 1 bag of spinach 1 bag of cauliflower rice Protein 1 lb ground meat 1 package bacon (no added sugar for Whole30 approved) 10 eggs Staples you’ll need: Cooking fat Spices 1.5 tsp garlic powder 1 tsp paprika ½ tsp cumin ½ tsp chili powder ⅛ tsp cayenne 1 tsp salt Hot sauce to taste (optional) 1 tsp oregano Garlic powder, salt, and pepper to taste for quiche and cauliflower rice Preheat oven to 350. Spray pan you are using for the quiche (you can use a pie pan, spring form pan, baking pan, even muffin tin! Just adjust cooking time accordingly). BACON: Roughly chop the bacon. Heat a large saute pan and cook bacon on medium high heat. While bacon is cooking, chop half of the onion. Remove bacon from pan onto plate with paper towels. Remove most of the bacon fat. QUICHE VEGGIES: Cook onion in same saute pan until translucent. Add spinach and cook until just wilted. Season with salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Mix with bacon pieces. Spread mixture on roasting pan. EGGS: Crack eggs into a separate bowl. Whisk with small amount of water or compliant almond milk, salt, and pepper. Pour over spinach and onion mixture in pan. Put in oven. Set a timer for 20 minutes.(don’t worry if it’s not preheated yet, it will be fine!) STIR FRY VEGGIES: Chop all veggies into bite-sized pieces. STIR FRY MEAT: Brown meat in a large saute pan (can use the same one as before) on medium high heat. Season with a little more than half of the seasoning mixture and optional hot sauce to taste. Remove from pan into separate bowl. STIR FRY VEGGIES: Add in onion, carrots, and bell pepper to same saute pan. Cook covered for about 3 minutes, then add in broccoli. Cook for about 5 more minutes, adding small amounts of water or cooking fat if needed and stirring often. Add in the rest of the seasoning mixture and optional hot sauce. CAULI RICE: While veggies are cooking, heat another saute pan with small amount of cooking fat. Add in cauliflower rice and cook on medium for about 5 minutes, stirring often. Season with garlic powder, salt, and oregano. When timer goes off for quiche, check to see if the eggs are set or if it needs more time. https://www.thepracticalprep.com/single-post/Easy-30-Whole30-Meal-Prep
  8. I apologize for what will surely be a LONG intro post... I've been having a variety of issues so far in my Whole30, the biggest ones being the common "loose" stool problem and also being hungry between meals/needing self-contained snacks. As a college student going for my BFA in musical theatre, I have LONG 12 hour days with multiple dance classes + occasional trips to the gym (trying to work on my strength since dance requires it but is a lot of cardio), and to top it all off, I have very little money for groceries, AND am a horrible cook. Looking for suggestions for my ailments (I will try cutting back on eggs, which I love but have been eating almost every morning, and cashews, which are my main snack/fat source but are probably causing my digestive issues): any afforable meal preps, since I am short on time to cook during the week?? And snacks I can grab and go? I feel I am eating enough at each meal because I feel satiated but also suffer from grumbly, angry tummy post-meal--but then again, maybe I'm not because I'm always hungry between meals? Always looking for better fat sources (I don't think I'm getting enough); I despise olives, and I like avocado, but usually not on its own. Need to cut the nuts. THANKS FRIENDS
