July Whole 25: Week 4 Meal Plan

Honestly I'm losing steam.  I'm super sick of planning my meals and cooking.  I opted for a lot of simple meals this week and a lot of the recipes were picked because I had most of the ingredients in my fridge already.  I'm so ready to eat the bacon that has been taunting me in my fridge!

Although I've really been enjoying my weekly breakfast selection, I really don't feel like making anything.  I may hard boil some eggs tomorrow night while I'm cooking dinner, but if not I have fruit and Lara Bars.

  • Lunch: Whatever leftovers we need to get rid of!
  • Dinner: Grilled chicken (marinated in olive oil, salt, pepper, garlic, chipotle spice blend) with grilled veggies and possibly some guacamole
And then I'm DONE!  I'm planning on eating some more leftovers for lunch on Friday since I know I'll be indulging this weekend.  I need to really start thinking about my approach for post Whole30.  I have no intentions of staying 100% compliant, but I know I need to do better than I was doing before or I'll just end up right where I started.

Do you try to follow a certain style of eating on a regular basis?  How do you keep yourself in check?


  1. Congrats on heading into your 4th week! I already crashed and burned for the second time. Too many special events and travel days, not enough commitment and personal support.

  2. Keep it going, woman! You can do it! I don't eat breakfast (due to Intermittent Fasting) and always pack my lunch (protein & veggie), so it's only dinner that sometimes alludes me. I got stuck eating hot dogs the other day due to lack of planning (yikes!). But I just came over to you blog today after reading a recipe for pulled pork. I'm gonna be whipping that up. NOM!

  3. I'm sorry you're getting burned out; almost done!! I am not a fan of leftovers so I've been making just enough for dinners and then packing soup or salads for lunch and that seems to help.

    I've also stopped looking up "paleo . . ." recipes and have just been using my own ideas revolving around what I know is compliant. It helps me feel like it's MY recipe creation and that's always more satisfying. With that being said, those chicken, spinach and prosciutto bundles look delicious!

  4. You should be proud of yourself for sticking with it even though you're starting to lose steam! That's the toughest part. I've never really followed a diet plan like this mainly because I know I could never stick to it. The second I tell myself I can't have certain things then they become all I want! You have amazing willpower for sticking it out this far!

  5. The end is the hardest! I do try to eat a healthy diet, avoid bad carbs and sugar, and eat lots of fresh fruits & veggies. I also try to enjoy life by not being too rigid. It's all about balance, right? I think in the end, the key is to find what works for you. We are all different and need to remember that what works for me may not be the answer for you.
