35 Whole30 Meal Prep Recipes (Whole Breakfasts, Whole30 Lunches) (2)

On a Whole30, meal prepping is unavoidable. Unless your job is to sit around all day, day after day, and whip up brand new recipes from scratch every time you get the least bit hungry, you’vegot to prep if you’re going to succeed.

Like the adage I see passed around the Whole30 community regularly, “If you fail to plan, you plan to fail.”

Clever… but damn true, too.

The reality is, though, that it’s really pretty easy to meal prep for a Whole30, especially for breakfast and lunch. Make a big batch of something, portion it out, andboom, you’re ready for the week. When it’s time to head to work in the morning, just open the fridge, grab a couple containers, and you’re set.

And in my family, we refuse to settle for boring meal prep. There’s no way we’d make it eating one-pan chicken and veggies every week – nope. We go big with buffalo chicken ranch meal prep and my healthy Greek meal prep, or my Whole30 sweet potato apple breakfast bake or hashbrown casserole. No one is suffering here, y’all. Not a soul.

That’s why I’ve rounded up my 35 favorite Whole30 meal prep recipes, to help you plan to succeed rather than eat the nearest office donut. Right? From one-pan meals to heavenly, flavorful meal prep ideas, this is the only list of Whole30 meal prep recipes you need.

    Guuurl….you get me! All of your recipes sound amazing. I’m a total novice to meal planning. Do you pick one recipe per week?! One for breakfast and one for lunch? I get easily overwhelmed when making life changes but desperately want to try a whole 30 again. First go around I little meal prep and it was miserable. How many hours in the kitchen should i expect? We often want to do family hikes on sundays and saturdays get pretty full too. Just trying to figure out a strategy that will actually work for me!

      IDEALLY, yes, you make everything on the weekends, but if the weekend is your family and de-stress time, make YOUR meal prep day be another day! Maybe you don’t work weekdays, so Tuesday is easiest for you. You can pick a couple recipes for variety, but the more ingredients they share, the less work it will be for you!
