So…you’re doing a Whole30 round. And you’re nervous, a bit scared, and kind of freaked out thinking you’re just going to be eating salad for the next 30 days.

I get it, and I’m here to help! My husband and I did our first Whole30 in May of 2018. You can read about our experience here. That ignited a burning passion in me for making wholesome, creative, and colorful food that anyone could enjoy.

And I’ve taken all our tips for success and put it into a comprehensive and printable Whole30 meal plan. For you!

What is Whole30?

I like to think of it as an elimination diet so that you can best figure out what (if any) foods might be negatively impacting you. Other people use it as a way to get their sugar or junk food cravings under control, and still others use it as a weight-loss tool (which it is not designed to be).

For 30 days you do not consume:

  • Sugar
  • Grains, including rice and quinoa
  • Dairy
  • Legumes
  • Soy
  • Certain additives
  • Any “recreated” foods like pancakes made from compliant ingredients

After the 30 days are up, you’re encouraged to add those items back in during a reintroduction phase. It’s designed to allow your body to take a pause and then see what foods to limit or avoid going forward. Whole30 is not intended to be a permanent way of eating.

For some people (like me!), there were not any foods that impacted me. But it helped me realize I was not eating nearly enough vegetables with every meal. That has led me to add greens to my daily scrambled eggs and have a lot more cut up veggies in the fridge for fast snacks.

A word of caution: if you have a relationship with food that leads you to excess or restrict, this might not be for you. It’s a strict 30 days, and you know yourself better than anyone. It’s a great tool for identifying “caution” foods, but if it won’t be good for you mentally, then don’t start down that path.

Instead, you can take the parts of the program that work well for everyone – adding more veggies and eating more whole foods. When I feel like I’m getting off track with my eating, I just make it a goal that half of my plate or meal is covered with veggies. That simple little shift is always enough to make me more mindful of my food choices.
