I’m so excited that you’ve decided to take the life-changing challenge and join me for the Whole30 program developed by New York Times Best Selling Authors Melissa and Dallas Hartwig. To help make our 30-day journey a whole lot easier and more delicious, each time I lead a Whole30 challenge, I always create new meal plans. You can find these on my Whole30 resources page.
In fact, I love creating meal plans that are not only Whole30-friendly, but are family-friendly too! Since I’m the only grain-free girl in a house full of grain-loving guys, I’m flying solo here doing what I call “The Lone Ranger” Whole30. Maybe the same holds true for you too?
So to keep us from becoming short order cooks, I’ve developed meal plans that feature recipes the whole family will love – whether they’re doing Whole30 or not. Below you will find my Whole30-friendly meal plans from two of my 30-day Whole30 challenges. (Simply click on the links to open the meal plans and then save them to your computer for convenient reference.)
Round One Whole30 Meal Plans:
• Week 1
• Week 2
• Week 3
• Week 4
• Bonus! Week 5
Round Two Whole30 Meal Plans:

• Week 2
• Week 3

Thanks for all your efforts, Kelly. With all the rules, Whole30 can be a bit confusing at first when you’re trying to decide what you can and cannot eat. Your meal plans and recipes made life so much easier.
You are so welcome! I put the meal plans up on their own page so they can reside here permanently. That way, those who decide to take the Whole30 challenge when they’re ready will have immediate access to all of these helpful resources.
I’m so glad you found the Whole30 meal plan kits to be helpful. Thanks again for your kind words and encouragement throughout our Whole30 journey! 🙂 You are a blessing!
Just a question. I see potatoes on your Whole30 menus and don’t remember them being allowed when I did a Whole30 last year. Has that changes or are you including them for your non-Whole30 family members?
I am so glad to have found your Whole30 page. I didn’t do it along with you, but I plan to do it again after the holidays. Your menus and ideas will be so helpful!
Hi, Laura. Yes, Whole30 now allows white potatoes. Here’s the scoop: http://whole30.com/2014/07/new-whole30/ I’m so glad you’ve found the menus too and I hope they help make your next Whole30 easier! Please keep me posted on your progress or if you have any questions. Many blessings, Kelly
Mary Kay Kunce says
I am very new and on day 3 of my first Whole 30. I notice that almond milk is allowed as long as unsweetened. I have checked all the ingredients listed on the container but potassium citrate in not in allowed or restricted. Please advise. Thank you so much.
Hi, Mary Kay. I have not seen a restriction for that particular ingredient. You could of course check the Whole30 site or post to their facebook page. 🙂
Thanks for posting this page. I look forward to trying your recipes. Everything looks so yummy!
You’re so welcome, Shonda! 🙂 Best to you on your Whole30 Journey!
Melinda S. says
Thank you for posting these! It looks great, and I am looking forward to trying this. However, just so you know, the hyperlink for carrot and red onion dish under October 5 is not correct. It goes back to potatoes, again.
Thank you so much for letting me know, Melinda. I’ll get that fixed as soon as possible! I really appreciate you taking the time to let me know and your kind words! 🙂 Thank you!
Rena Acevez says
I am looking forward to joining you on the 18th for the Whole30. First of all thank you for providing these meal plans to make if easier for people like myself who are new to this are already meal planners and have families to still feed (we are a family of 6).
I am new to all of this and am just wondering if your meals plans will be the same as ones you provided in the fall with just news dates. Or will the meal plans be completely different.
Thanks for helping me venture through new territory. I am looking forward to taking head on my recent hypothyroidism diagnosis, tackle obesity, and also obtain more optimal health as someone living with hereditary spherocytosis!
Hi, Rena. Welcome to our Whole30 Challenge! To answer your question, the meal plans that I will be providing will be new ones. There will be some of the same recipes from the fall (my very favorites), but there will also be some delicious new ones as well. If you’d like to receive the new meal plans, you’ll need to subscribe to my newsletter and be sure to check the box “Whole30 Meal Plans & Recipes.” I hope this helps to clarify! Looking forward to you joining us and taking positive steps forward in discovering how a healthy diet can help with health and wellbeing! 🙂
Thank you so much for all the hard work that you put into this website as well as making whole30 seem simple with all your tools instead of overwhelming. I do have a question though. Do you have any plans like you do for whole 30 family friendly but instead just for one individual? I am not quite there yet in my life so I just need meals for one. Thank you again
Hi, Caitlyn. Thank you so much for your kind words. I’m glad you’re finding the Whole30 resources helpful. Although I don’t have meal plans for one, I do have a couple of recommendations to help. First, most of the recipes selected serve 4, so you could half the recipe, which would give you leftovers for lunch or dinner another night. By “shopping” the meal plans for recipes that sound good to you, that you don’t mind having as leftovers again, that will save you a lot of cooking and prepping time. So whereas I need to make all 7 meals on the meal plan, you may be able to make as little as just 3 dinner recipes, yet get 6-7 dinners, or again use leftovers for lunch. You might also want to try googling “Whole30 meal plans for one” or something like that and perhaps you’ll find someone who does offer that service. Hope this helps. 🙂 Best to you on your Whole30 journey!
This looks great but I can’t seem to get recipes up when I click on them, any suggestions?? Thank You!
Hi, Cathy. If you are using a phone or tablet, that is most likley the issue. The best way to access the recipe links is to open the meal plan from your computer and save it to your desktop, then open the meal plan directly from your computer. All computers have pdf readers that can recognize hyperlinks in pdfs, unfortunately, not all phones or tablet devices have this capability. Although, some have informed me that they have been able to save the meal plans to their tablets and open from their tablet once it’s saved there. If you are using your computer, and are having trouble, please try saving it first to your computer and then opening up the meal plan direct from the file saved on your computer. If you still have trouble that means you need a pdf reader in which case, you can download Adobe Reader for free. Just google “Adobe Reader” and select the version for your computer. They have a version for macs and a version for pcs. I hope this helps! 🙂 Blessings, Kelly
Stephanie Pickering says
So glad you have this site with make easy recipes. I am just starting week one. Wish me luck.
You are so welcome, Stephanie. I’m so glad you’re finding the recipes and meal plans helpful to you! We’ll be starting a new Whole30 again in July, so I hope you’ll stick around here. If you’re not a subscriber, I encourage you to join so you’re in the loop about new recipes and meal plans, as well as our next whole30 and more 🙂 You can subscribe here: http://eepurl.com/LFIpf Blessings, Kelly 🙂
When I click on the link to reach weekly meal plan it makes me download it to view the plans. Once I do, I can’t see the actual recipes. There’s no way too click on the individual meal name to take me to a recipe. They all look so good, but I need to know how to make them.
I see a previous post. Thanks
No worries. If you have any questions or concerns, please know I’m always happy to help! So glad you’re joining us for Whole30! Blessings, Kelly 🙂
Tina Peterson says
I am so impressed with these menus! I’m considering doing the whole30 program but I’m single w kids who are very very picky. So I’ve been looking for menus with normal foods not fancy ones. Thanks!
I’ve got it all saved to my flashdrive so I can review them at home when I have time. Thanks!
Hi, Tina. I’m so sorry I missed your comment. Please forgive me for the oversight. The good news is that we are just about to start another round of whole30. If you’d like to join us (if you haven’t already), we’d love to have you join us. I have new meal plans and recipes for free to subscribers. If you’re interested, feel free to subscribe here: http://eepurl.com/bLzzuP Happy New Year! 🙂
On day 6 and so impressed with these dinners! Everything has been so tasty – it’s been difficult to get leftovers for lunch because everyone is gobbling these meals right up. Favourites so far have been the tomato vinaigrette, roasted sweet potato bites, and southwestern chicken burgers.
Yay! So glad you’re enjoying the recipes and meal plans. Keep up the great work! If you’d like to get my latest Whole30 meal plans, please be sure to subscribe here: http://eepurl.com/bLzzuP Thanks for taking the time to leave a kind note! Blessings, Kelly
Thank you! Some great recipes posted here! Very nice of you.
My pleasure to help! You are also welcome to subscribe to my free whole30 meal plans here: http://eepurl.com/bLzzuP Blessings, Kelly 🙂
Judith Tepe says
My husband and I both did the Whole30 program and lost 15 pounds each. My doctor wants me to lose 30 more pounds and lower my LDL. Can I stay on this program and still lose weight? I have been at a plateau since we finished the 5 week program.
Judith, so happy to hear that Whole30 helped you move forward in living healthier. As far as continuing on with the program, yes you can, but if you are strictly adhering to the program without any deviation and you find that you still haven’t lost additional weight at the 60 mark, it would be a good idea to seek some support from a functional medicine doctor who can help guide you to explore any underlying health issues and also lifestyle issues that may be holding you back from losing weight. Of course, the goal of whole30 is improved health and not a focus on weight, although weight loss in varying degrees is always a result. If more weight loss is needed than your getting from whole30 alone, then again, I definitely recommend working directly with a health practitioner who is skilled in gut health. This site can help you locate a functional medicine doctor: https://www.functionalmedicine.org/practitioner_search.aspx?id=117 I hope this helps! 🙂
Thank you so much for sharing these recipes. I am a busy, single mom, of two young ones and it was really this page and the recipes that made it possible for me to do my first Whole30. Grocery shopping and meal planning was never been easier; I knew what I was making every week and just want I needed to buy. These are a great compilation of recipes, and to quote my seven-year-old son “This is not Whole30, this is WholeYummy!” Thanks again for serving God and others through your page.
You are so welcome, Viviana. Thank you for being so kind and encouraging. I appreciate the time you take to leave sweet notes! So happy you’re finding this site helpful! You son is so adorable. I love that “WholeYummy!” So cute! 🙂
I love this. Do you have similar plans/shopping lists for 1 person? It’s just me and this will be my first whole 30.
Hi, Lucy! Thanks for your kind note. I don’t have meal plans for just 1. But you can definitely adjust the meal plans to fit your needs by either reducing the recipe or by picking 3-4 recipes and enjoying leftovers. Best to you on your Whole30 journey! 🙂
Mary Kay says
Question Please–today I made the home made mayo. I doubled the recipe but followed it exactly. My mayo is the consistency of thick chocolate milk. Any idea what I did wrong??? thank you for the help and suggestions.
Hi, Mary Kay. I’m sorry to hear the mayo didn’t work out for you. Since this is not my recipe, I’m going to provide you with a link to help you troubleshoot from our friends at Whole30: http://whole30.com/2014/05/mayo/ I hope you find this helpful. 🙂
Okay I am all set to start week one of your meal plan….I can’t wait to eat all this delicious food.
My biggest obstacle is gonna be cutting out my Ex Lg Steeped Tea with 2 cream and 2 sugar in the morning.
Wish me luck
Hi, Becky! That’s great to hear that you’re starting your Whole30. You can still enjoy your tea, but use coconut cream instead. It’s quite tasty! 🙂
Susan Sunday says
I’m at the tail end of my 4th (or 5th?) Whole30, and it has been the easiest so far because of your meal plans and grocery lists. In 3 weeks I’ve only eaten out 3 times (compliantly of course) but for the most part I don’t feel like I’m missing out on anything because these recipes are just SO good. Thank you for curating these weeks, I’m even thinking of continuing the Whole30 into a Whole35 to fit in all five weeks.
Thank you so much for your kind words! I’m so happy your whole30 is going great and that you’re enjoying the free meal plans, recipes and resources here. I really appreciate you taking the time to leave a kind note! 🙂
Regina Clark says
You’re meal plans were a key part of me enjoying Whole30! It was so easy to pick it up and know that I could buy groceries and have recipes that worked. I did notice that the meal plans you offer on your site now are different than when I did it. Do you have the old meal plans you’d be willing to post? I’ve been pointing lots of my friends to your site!
Hi, Regina. Thanks so much for taking the time to leave a kind a note. I’m so happy that the free Whole30 meal plans, recipes and resources here have helped you to have a successful Whole30 journey! Yes, I do update the meal plans each time I lead a new Whole30 here. But if you’re looking for past plans, feel free to email me. Wishing you a blessed holiday season! 🙂 Kelly
Joan W says
Hi Kelly, funnily enough I’ve just stumbled across your site because I’m pulling together some info on the Whole 30 for my husband. I’ve done it twice before and it literally changed my life. I now eat a wholefoods based keto diet most of the time. My husband has been a vegan for a while but is having a lot of skin issues like eczema so he’s thinking of doing a Whole 30. I’m going to show him your meal plans so he can see the kinds of delicious foods he can be eating. Thanks!
So great to hear from you, Joan. I’m so happy to help you and your husband with these free Whole30 meal plans, recipes and resources. It sounds like you know firsthand what a huge blessing the Whole30 program is. Thanks for taking the time to leave a kind note! With blessings, Kelly 🙂
Thanks for posting these meal plans, I’m sure they will be instrumental in my success! I was just wondering if the shopping list included the amount and ingredients needed for breakfast or if I will need to plan those separately and add them to the list? Trying to be as prepared as possible and don’t want to have a panic if I don’t get all the food I need. Thanks!!
Hi, Sharon. I’m so happy you’re finding these free meal plans helpful! As far as the breakfast and lunch ideas, those are shared as options, and are not included in the shopping list. So if you choose to use any or all of those recipes, you will need to add the ingredients to your shopping list! Best to you on your Whole30 journey! xoxo
Thank you so much for posting this meal plan! The shopping list made this so easy. Every single meal on this plan, my whole family devoured…there was not a single meal they requested me not to make again. And I asked at every dinner!! Delicious and fairly easy. Thank you again!
Thank you so much, Shannon. Apologies for the delay in replying. I am so happy you found my Whole30 meal plans and recipes helpful. Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a kind note! With blessings, Kelly 🙂
Mary Bishop says
