If you’re currently on the Whole 30 Plan, or simply want to eat more whole, real foods, this Whole 30 Meal Plan is perfect for you!
While the idea behind the Whole 30 Plan is simple (eat whole, real foods), this is easier said than done. It’s no easy feat giving up all processed foods, and planning, then cooking each meal completely from scratch. That’s why we’ve laid out one week’s worth of dinners to make eating clean simpler, and much more sustainable.
Clean Cuisine Basic Weekly Dinner Plan
Following a clean eating diet (or a plan like the Whole 30) can easily turn into eating the same foods over and over again. With a busy schedule, and what seems like never enough time in the day, being creative with your meals can seem like an exhausting and daunting task.
However, having a diverse diet is not only important for health purposes, but also to keep food exciting, and enjoyable! Because of this, we like to follow a basic weekly guide to help us plan meals throughout the week. Here’s the breakdown:
- Meat Free Mondays
- Stir Fry Tuesdays
- One Dish Wonder Wednesdays
- Around the World on Thursdays
- Fish on Fridays
- Burger Saturdays
- Slow Cooker/ Chili Sundays
Whole 30 Meal Plan
The Whole 30 Plan is essentially an elimination diet, that takes you back to the basics of eating clean, real foods. It’s a great reset for the gut, and a good option for identifying any food intolerances that may be slowing down your healing.
MONDAY – Meat free
Meat Free Monday’s are a perfect time to enjoy a warm bowl of Carrot Ginger Soup. This soup requires only 6 ingredients, and is smooth, creamy, and delicious.
TUESDAY – Stir Fry
This 20-Minute Chicken Stir Fry with Broccoli Dinner is simple but an incredibly flavorful “clean eating” recipe inspired by Thai cuisine.
Enjoy this dish on it’s own, or pair it with our Cauliflower Rice for some extra veggies!
WEDNESDAY – One Dish Wonder
If you’ve never experienced Sweet Tuna, this is your sign! The sweet and salty flavors of this quick dish are perfect compliments to one another, and offer a flavor you’ll want to keep coming back for.
Open a can of tuna, load it with your favorite add-ons, and you have a delicious, nutrient-dense meal in under 5 minutes.
Enjoy this dish on it’s own, or pair with some Flax Crackers for some delicious, extra texture and flavor.
THURSDAY – Around the World
These delicious Asian Lettuce Wraps are incredibly satisfying and can be served as a main dinner. These Wraps will become a favorite!
Top these with this dairy-free Sour Cream for a delicious addition!
FRIDAY – Fish
While shrimp are not technically fish (rather, shrimp are crustaceans), I love to use Fish Friday’s for any type of seafood!
This Mojo Shrimp Skillet is what you call a flavor bomb and is an amazing way to make cauliflower rice something you crave eating!
Enjoy this as is, or top with clean salsa for some added flavor, and a bit of extra spice!
SATURDAY – Burger
If you are trying to eat less meat (a good thing!), this recipe for Mushroom and Beef Sliders (or meatballs!) will give you all the flavor and even the texture of an all-meat slider –with almost half the meat! Enjoy these in a lettuce wrap.

SUNDAY – Chili
If you have a sensitive stomach, this Gut-Friendly Pumpkin Chili is perfect for you! By removing the nightshades and beans, I’ve made this chili one you can indulge in without fear of an upset stomach later on.
If you’re looking for a delicious appetizer, try these Loaded Potato Skins with crab and pesto before the main dish!
While white potatoes just recently got approved as part of the Whole 30 Plan, they’re not considered paleo. For another option, Grain-Free Biscuits pair perfectly with this chili as well!
A Few Desserts and Smoothies for the Week
While the Whole 30 Plan does not allow any added sweeteners of any type (including maple syrup and honey), you’re welcome to enjoy all types of fruit! Here are some of our favorite smoothies and desserts without added sweeteners.
Turmeric Orange Detox Smoothie/Popsicle – Filled with anti-inflammatory, detoxifying ingredients, this recipe can be made into a smoothie or popsicle!
Healthiest Protein Shake – In this Healthy Protein Shake Recipe, we are ditching the processed protein powder. Here, we share the secret for the healthiest and cleanest protein.
Berry Blast Popsicles – These Berry Blast Popsicles are filled with polyphenols, vitamins, and minerals, and also offer a punch of protein due to the creamy cashews they include. They’re quick, easy, and a super satisfying treat for the Whole 30 Plan!
