Whole 30 Week 2 Meal Plan

We’re headed in to week two of January Whole 30! How are you feeling? The first week can be challenging between getting used to the guidelines and the different unpleasant ways your body can react to cutting out sugar, grains, cookies, etc. Hope you are on the upswing!

Here is my meal plan for this week. I hope it’s helpful as you do your own grocery shopping and meal planning. Most of my salads will be topped with chicken because that’s what I got a bunch of this weekend. My grocery store didn’t have any “approved” sausages that I found, so I’m going to make a recipe that I found on Primal Palate’s website (I haven’t tried any of their seasonings, but this recipe is great!).

Let me know if you have any questions!

Texas wildflowers. Growing up, my mom always told me about the beautiful wild flowers that cover Texas. I’m loving seeing the beautiful colors during my first summer here!

Breakfast Bars

These delicious breakfast bars from My New Roots. I can’t wait to tell y’all about them next week!

Basil RootsMy baby basil plant. Any other recovering black thumbs out there? A neighbor shared a basil cutting with me and I am so excited that it is growing roots! New life (even in little plants) is amazing! Not to mention, the idea of having a basil plant in my container garden has visions of pesto dancing in my head 🙂

Happy weekend, y’all! I hope you have had a good week and a great weekend ahead. Thanks so much for stopping by!
