Are you ready to take your Whole30 education and planning to the next level?
Besides educating yourself about the philosophy and principles of the Whole30, another essential component is menu planning and meal prepping. At the end of each week, I begin searching for recipes and create a menu for the following week.
Today, there are endless resources for Whole30 compliant recipes. In my opinion, some of the best recipes come from the multiple Whole30 recipe books created by Whole30 cofounder, Melissa Hartwig. These books include The Whole30 program book, The Whole30 Cookbook, and the new book Whole30 Fast & Easy, which came out this month.
A resource I use almost daily is Pinterest. There you will find Whole30 tips, shopping lists, meal templates and of course many recipes. I like to sort my recipes on my Pinterest boards for easy access and quick reference. Often times, while searching on Pinterest, you will be directed to paleo and Whole30 blogs where you will find even more recipes to add to your collection. Some of my favorite Whole30 bloggers include:
- Ashley at Fit Mitten Kitchen
- Kelsey at Little Bits Of
- Chrissa at Physical Kitchness
- Michele at The Whole Smiths
- Danielle at Against All Grain
- Jessica and Stacie at The Real Food Dietitians
You will find that most bloggers also have an instagram. This is a great way to see what people are eating daily or which new recipes have just been posted on their blog. The official Whole30 Recipe instagram stream is constantly being updated with new recipes from real time bloggers and the Whole30 headquarters. If you don’t have an instagram account, do not worry! You can often view instagrams feeds online and from blog links.
It is on blogs and on instagram that I find my favorite Whole30 recipes that keep the 30 days tasty and satisfying. Cooking a variety of different foods is what helps keep me motivated during my rounds.
Looked out for next week’s post about my favorite Whole30 Compliant products and go to shoppings lists for stores like Trader Joe’s and Whole Foods!
