Whole30 Week 1 Menu

January 7, 2018

Hey friends! If you follow me on Instagram (@emilyduplooy) then you might know that Jared and I are doing the Whole30 this month! We are so excited and also nervous! We used to eat a Paleo diet before I got pregnant, but once I got pregnant, it was pretty much a free for all! And then I got pregnant…again…and it was a free for all…again! So basically I have been living it up for the past two years, eating whatever I wanted! I gained 40 lbs with my first pregnancy, lost it, then gained 35 with my second pregnancy, and lost all but 5 lbs! I’ll try not to ramble too much, but basically, Jared and I both wanted to do the Whole30 to reset and start cooking and eating healthy food again! We seriously hadn’t eaten vegetables in….um….a long time! Haha!

The first week wasn’t nearly as hard as I had anticipated. I am probably still on a Whole30 High, and this upcoming week may be much harder! Hopefully not, though. I am going to share our menu each week of the Whole30 to help give you some ideas if you are doing a Whole30! Here is what we ate for Week 1!
