Difficulty preparing Meals

Recommended Posts

I am interested in starting the program but have a condition which makes it difficult to do much cooking. For example to prepare even a simple dinner could take me three hours. With the aforementioned in mind would appreciate any suggestions that would help me through the Whole 30.

Pre-cut or frozen vegetables can help save time. There are some brands of whole30 compliant frozen meals -- a few brands are mentioned here: https://whole30.com/whole30-at-walmart/. This is for Walmart, but I think only the Great Value brand is a Walmart exclusive, you might Google other brands to see where they're available. There are also some companies that you can order meals from, plus dressings and sauces so you don't have to make all of those from scratch, listed on the Whole30 Approved page:  https://whole30.com/whole30-approved/.

You can also stick to really simple options. Scrambled eggs with a couple of handfuls of the pre-washed, bagged baby spinach. A can of tuna dumped over a bagged salad mix with mayo or dressing or avocado. If you get pre-cut vegetables, sheet pan meals may not be too bad to prepare, toss your vegetables with oil and seasonings, put them and seasoned meat on a baking sheet, and cook.

If you have a crockpot, it requires a little more planning, but you can start a meal early in the day so it'll be ready for dinner. 

For most people, it doesn't really take much longer to cook multiple servings at the same time, if you can do that, then you'll have leftovers to save time making another meal.
