  1. 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!

    Shopping site

    Is there a website with Whole 30 approved foods?
  3. Hi all! So, I will be travelling to Arizona to visit my parents in February (a couple of weeks after I finish my first Whole30), and I am SUPER excited to bring back a few of the products I have been hearing so much about, to make my life a little easier as I continue my Whole30-inspired lifestyle. We don't have Trader Joe's or Whole Foods where I live and it seems like there are lots of compliant options there. What are some of your favourite things to get at Trader Joe's? Or Whole Foods? I am looking for (a) options to cook for/with my parents while I'm there, and ( a few of the best salad dressings, condiments, etc to come back in my suitcase with me. Thanks in advance for your help!
  4. One week in and what a week it has been. Started my whole 30 last Monday, on Wednesday my 21 day old grandson was hospitalized with strep B-a very bad bug esp. in newborns...scared us silly.....leaving me to bring home the older three, ages 7, 5, and 2. Wow, Fear, stress, feeling helpless... But at the core of it all I know real life Will Happen every day, and I stayed committed to the whole 30. Having my sister as companion in my journey helped me stay accountable, too....The baby is doing great but had to suffer through a spinal tap, catheterization, multiple blood draws... Thank God the bacteria had not entered into his blood stream or spinal fluid.. Actually it started as a "weird" diaper rash my daughter did not like the looks of... Mother's intuition... And it is turning into a 10 day hospital stay. So I feel like a champ having nearly succumbed to coming home and cracking open a bottle of wine... And I think that is what So far I have missed this past week- booze! A glass of wine; beer or two on the 4th of July. But since I am being honest with myself, it is never a glass of wine. it is always half the bottle. It is always three pale ales or chocolate stouts. I will miss you beer, now that I am giving up grains ..... I just got the Nom Nom paleo app with tons of whole 30 recipes, have ordered well fed 1 and 2, and liked several paleo sites on facebook for recipes and inspiration. I like to cook but not so great at the clean up part.... I am not much of a grocery shopper either, and this is forcing me to get back to what is important!,,,I thought after raising and cooking for four kids, their buddies, & my husband all those years I could coast... But cooking and feeding yourself is a life-long thing....and I need to rekindle some kind of passion for it.... Hoping the inspiring things ordered will help. Right now, I've got nothing!

    A minor victory

    Hi, This is day 8 of my first Whole 30 & so far things have been largely positive. (Thank god for the timeline so I could rationalise my extreme tiredness and feelings of rage a couple of days ago!) I just wanted to post and share what has been, for me, a surprising 'win' of the programme so far. I'm just back from the supermarket and ready to start batch cooking for the week. I felt so good in the supermarket, shopping from my list and buying healthy food. This may sound silly, but the reason I felt so good is that I had absolutely no inclination whatsoever to buy any junk - no chocolate, crisps or sweets or diet Coke - at all. I walked past it all without a second glance. (Even though I'm buying organic meat, eggs etc, I reckon not buying junk means my grocery bills will be coming down too!) Anyway, hope everyone has a good week. I just wanted to revel a little in this new feeling of control! Clare

    Show me your lists!

    Hi All, I'm starting my third Whole30 on August 1st and was hoping to get some fresh ideas for new ingredients to try. What does your weekly Whole30 grocery shopping list look like? Thanks! Julie
  7. So, as I wrap up on my first Whole30 week ever and am reflecting on the successes and challenges, I find this particular "Whole30 Fail" amusing to me and thought I'd post to see if anyone else has had similar experiences. I do all the grocery shopping for the family, so it was really easy for me to switch out the "bad" choices with the approved ones. I got really gung-ho about meal planning, prepping, and making sure healthy choices were always available for everyone. In that, it was "great success"! What I didn't count on was now that I wasn't eating breakfast and lunch at coffee shops and restaurants, my food was coming from the fridge. A fridge that was rapidly emptying. A fridge that was pretty much completely empty come Thursday night. Fortunately, we had a small stockpile of frozen chicken breasts and veggies in the freezer so we're not starving or anything, but it was an "aha" moment for me to realize that I need to increase my grocery purchasing if my family of 2 1/2 (baby is still transitioning to solids and doesn't count as a whole person yet) is going to make it through a whole week on one grocery run! Any epic whoopses or fails when you were first starting out?
