Whole30 Tips & Tricks

I’m assuming you’re here because you’ve decided to take on the Whole30 Challenge. Or at least do some research before diving in head first. (Which I highly recommend!)


First, read everything on Whole9 for rules, regulations and motivation to really get started.


Get in the right mindset. And stay there. You’re doing this for a reason, right?

Plan an entire weeks meals once a week. Meal planning will save you from feeling completely lost when a craving attacks.

Rid your kitchen of all temptation! Yes, get rid of ALL non-Whole30 foods. NOW.

Go to the grocery and get everything you need once a week. Don’t drive yourself crazy with 7 trips a week. It’s painful and discouraging.

Who cares about the nutrition label. READ THE INGREDIENTS! Don’t try to justify something because you can “kinda” pronounce it.

Stick to your meal plan NO MATTER WHAT.

Make large portions so you have enough for multiple meals.

Stay away from restaurants if this is your first whole30. They use a lot of sneaky ingredients that you can no longer eat.

Work through cravings. They’ll be gone within 5 minutes.

Stay hydrated… with water.

Chew your food and really enjoy it. After all you spend time making it.

Gather a huge variety of recipes before you start. Pick a few every week and the 30 days will fly by.

Stay positive!

And remember, you are what you eat.
