4-Week Whole30 Meal Plan & Grocery List Whole30 Meal Plan: Week 3 | Our Paleo Life

[rs-alerts label=”DON’T FORGET:” type=”alert-success”]

This meal plan comes with a complete grocery list. Check it out at the bottom of the post.


Late posting the meal plan again. The weeks are just flying by and all of a sudden it’s Sunday and I have no plan. I pretty much wound up winging it all of week 2. I didn’t even look at my own meal plan and had a couple slips.  Also, I think I must be one of those people that doesn’t lose weight on Whole30’s, which isn’t terrible, though it would be nice.

Week 2 wound up being weird for me, a very stark contract to week 1. I pretty much lost my appetite. I just simply wasn’t hungry for most of the week (and felt pretty sick on Monday, so even if I was hungry that day, I wouldn’t have eaten for fear of not being able to keep it down). I wound up skipping some meals, just snacking, or eating bird-sized portions.

My problem this time around is I taste-tested a few recipes I was trying out, and I think that set me back a little. I’ve also got a few Whole3-approved recipes that I’m going to try and get posted this week. I had big plans for avocados last week, but I think that all avocados are on strike around here. They feel ripe and ready, then we cut them open and they’re either rock hard or completely brown. This has been going on for 2 weeks. So I’ve temporarily given up on avocados because they’re mean.

I’m still tracking my daily meals with photos on the Whole30 Visual Guide, and let me tell you, taking an extra 4 pictures a day is a lot more hassle than I originally anticipated. When I want to eat, I want to eat. But I think having this photo food journal is extremely helpful and will continue to do it until the Whole30 is done.

And finally, here is the Week 3 meal plan. I’m reusing some recipes from the previous two weeks. Our weeknights have gotten pretty hectic with the kids’ activities, so I’m trying to plan the easiest meals for hectic nights (and our activities are right at dinnertime, what the heck?!). Hopefully this helps ease the burden of meal prep in your home as well.

  1. Hi. I’m interested in trying to feed my family a Paleo diet and also in The Whole30. My daughter has a severe egg allergy and does not tolerate dairy – at all. Dairy is obviously not a big issue, but what would you suggest as an alternative to all those bacon and egg breakfasts? I don’t actually eat pork or beef or seafood (all of which my kids eat), so I would clearly be relying heavily on poultry and fish..non of which make an appetizing breakfast option…Suggestions?

  2. I found your meal plans so very helpful and was sad to find they weren’t continued and lots of things were TBD in Week 3. Thanks so much for the work you put in to the first two weeks, they got me off to a great start and everything was delicious.

  3. Looking for your Paleo Denver Omelette recipe. Love your recipes!
    Thanks so much for sharing!
