My Whole30 Grocery List and Healthy Meal Planning

Food and Drink

Disclaimer: I’m NOT a Whole30 Pro, nor a nutritionist. The list below is just what it says “MY Grocery List”. Some items may not be considered ‘Whole30 approved’ and will recommend buying the book if you want all the rules. What you see below worked great for me. I was able to see results, limit my snacking/cravings, clear up my skin, and learn what foods affected my body. AKA: why it’s my whole30 list and something I did just great with.

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 fitness planner and meal tracker.

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 nuts), 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, but 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 ;) And since I’m motivated by pretty resources, I created a stylish meal planner and fitness tracker.

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?

    • Angela S says:

      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!

    Sweets are not allowed on W30. . .

  3. D. A. says:

    I mean this in the very best of interest. I can be a word geek. So, avocado has two “o’s” not two “a’s”.
    Besides all that, thank you for the planning ideas and the meal suggestions. I am having the hardest time thinking all this through.

  4. Holly says:

    Absolutely stunning photos!!! Everything looks extremely delicious. Lovely, gorgeous food!!! Thank you for inspiring me this morning.

  5. K says:

    Ok, the Whole 30 does not promote things like chia pudding and banana coconut bowls for breakfast. Nor are “sweets”, or recreation of sweets. The meal template is very specific and is the same for every meal-veggies, protein and a plated fat. Fruit is to be eaten very sparingly. It is always great when someone wants a healthier lifestyle, but these items are not allowed on Whole 30. There is so much misinformation out there. It is not a diet, it is an elimination process to find out what foods trigger inflammation in your body. If you don’t follow the rules, you don’t enjoy the full benefits. Just wanted to point that out.

    • Angela says:

      Thanks! I should probably add that I’m not certified in Whole30 and what I followed and posted above did worke great for me (in terms of results, snacking, and finding the foods that affected me). But may not be Whole30 approved ;)
