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.

The Week 3 Meal Plan, at a glance:
Again, just like the Week 1 and Week 2 meal plans , this meal plan and grocery list is for a family of 5. Adjust the list as needed for your family. Also, the grocery list does not account for the vague snacks listed as “fruits & vegetables”. Add what you want to the list for that.
