My Whole30 Grocery List and Healthy Meal Planning

November 13, 2017

I thought I would share an update, as I’m about 2 weeks into my first ever Whole30…and it’s not too bad! I’m actually loving it and surprisingly doing much better than I thought I ever would.  I do have to say, I think it might be a bit easier for me because we already were eating pretty healthy, we rarely ever go out to eat, and my husband is doing it with me. The main reasons I am doing this is to help reset my body and my sugar cravings (the quick bars, afternoon latte, nightly halo top) were getting the best of me. Doing Whole30 is forcing me to cut that shit out (rules HERE)  ;) – ALSO, we are going to Mexico in about 2.5 months and I want to look and feel great, so this is going to be a great way to introduce a healthier lifestyle for the next few months.

With all of that, I thought I would share with you my Whole30 grocery list and healthy meal planning guide. Keep in mind, this is my first time and I’m no expert at this but I think it’s a good start! So, take a peek below at my Whole30 grocery list and healthy meal planning guide! — P.S. Feel free to use my planning guide and meal log HERE!

With the Whole30 grocery list above I will highly recommend buying ‘The Pantry’ items first and even getting extra. I’ve noticed that I tend to use quite a bit of coconut oil, coconut milk, almond milk, spices (hello cinnamon and garlic), assorted nuts, and dates. If you buy a little extra (like ntus), you’ll know you’ll eat them at some point!

Note: I do try my best to get ‘compliant’ items, but there are a few I don’t and just go with it (aka: turkey bacon or tuna). I’m still eating very healthy and cutting out a lot so I’m happy with getting a few non-compliant items.  P.S. be prepared to spend a lot of $$, but it’s worth it.

MEAL PLANNING: We did start to write out our meals for the week that way we knew if or when we would have to make a quick Costco run. Not only that,  we also started to track our macros to make sure we were getting all of the right nutrients and at the right times (hello carbs before workouts and protein after ;) – Feel free to check out my MEAL PLANNER HERE too!

A HUGE TIP: I highly recommend making a lot of meat at once, either in the crockpot (and shredded) or simply baked in the oven. When we do that I am able to break it up a bit and make a whole variety of these recipes.  This works for us as we are more than happy to eat chicken for a week ;) — If you’re not that type, you just might have to meal plan a little bit more. With that, I thought it would make sense to break the recipes into categories of meat as I realized quickly how often I had leftover meat and wanted to try a new recipe.

  • OMG! This makes me really want to try the Whole30 diet!! Those recipes look AMAZING!! The Whole30 isn’t really very popular in Australia… is it sort of like the keto diet?

    • Hi highly recommend it! And I think it might be just a little more strict than keto, just because you do it for 30 days (not a strict full lifestyle change). But, going on 3 weeks now I’m not hating it or struggling, so that’s a win!
