Let us guess… you want to commit to the #SeptemberWhole30, but you’ve got reservations. You’re overwhelmed by the idea of planning and cooking so many Whole30 meals from scratch. You aren’t sure what to do about those emergency travel moments (you know, like when your flight is delayed and you’re crabby and hungry and you’d normally just order a soft pretzel… those moments). And, you’re not sure you’ve got the time to grocery shop for all of the Whole30 Approved and compliant foods that you’ll need.
You have reservations. We have solutions.
“Hey Melissa… I need meal planning help.”
Meet Real Plans. Melissa worked personally with the team at Real Plans to design a Whole30-compliant, fully customized meal planner featuring more than 1,000 Whole30-compliant recipes. No guesswork. No substitutions. No hidden ingredients. Spend a few moments inputting your schedule, needs and preferences into the Whole30 planner, and it will generate a 30-day meal plan, complete with a shopping list, printable recipes and meal prep notes. All of this, in minutes.
CUE THE ANGELS SINGING.
Oh, we forgot to mention… there is even a place to plan your Fast Track 10-day reintroduction, letting you see recipes that are Whole30 + your reintroduction food without any other ingredients that might throw you off. (Yes, this is absolutely incredible, and takes all the guesswork out of reintroduction!)
“I do not have time to prep and cook every single meal.”
May we introduce you to Pre-Made Paleo? Chef Richard of Pre-Made Paleo created the recipes in The Whole30, and Pre-Made Paleo is the only meal delivery service that ships recipes straight from the book to your door. Pre-Made Paleo has a variety of Whole30 meal plans to suit your needs and schedule. Their Emergency Kit is particularly helpful during a Whole30; it includes breakfast, lunch and dinner options, plus some fun extras like soups and chicken stock. Our social media manager Shanna likes keeping an Emergency Kit in her freezer for those days when she returns home from a trip to discover nothing but a wilted carrot and some sauerkraut in her fridge.
