Chances are you probably have heard that preparation is the key when doing a Whole30. During the 30 day reset we optimize meals that are packed with tons of fresh vegetables, high quality proteins, fat, and good carbohydrates. Personally, I really love cutting out all the processed and added sugar. Keep focus on a well-balanced meal template. After the 30 day reset, my whole body feels so much better – not feel bloated after meals, better energy, skin, and as a side bonus I was able to fit into the jeans I used to wear in the college (hey that’s over a decade ago!).
Tips for A Successful Whole30 Meal Prep
Many of you asked for breakfast and portable lunch ideas. To me, having breakfast ready ahead of time (and just reheat in the morning) really saved me during Whole30. I’m not a morning person so grab-and-go breakfasts ready is absolutely crucial. Lunch usually involves reheat what we ate a night before. So learn to dress up your leftovers.
- Include a wide variety of nutrients
- Put green color veggies to every meal, including lunch box!
- Learn to dress up leftovers
- Prep breakfast in advance
- Have a few back-pocket recipes ready and make larger batch.
- Have emergency snacks ready (p.s. it’s okay to snack when life throws you curve balls. See more here)
- Avoid processed things as much as possible
- Use containers that are safe for quick reheat
- Get kids involved in lunch making
