Doing a Whole30 isn’t as hard as it seems if you use our helpful and organized meal plan.

We loved using The Real Simple Good Life’s Whole30 recipes and meal plans.
I don’t know how we would’ve made it through the program without these perfectly curated plans – not only were there recipes, but they also provided shopping lists too, which were beyond convenient considering we were buying many items that weren’t normally on our grocery list. Thanks so much to Justin and Erica for making this so simple and accessible for us!

Absolutely amazing!
If you are on the fence about Whole30 this meal plan is a game changer!
My husband and I were overwhelmed by all the rules and trying to find what is compliant without getting bored of eating the same thing every day. Real Simple Good to the rescue! We loved every meal and really never felt like we were missing out on anything. The food was so flavorful and the weekly emails really spelled out how to get everything done without getting overwhelmed.

5 Stars…10/10….AMAZING!
The Whole30 is challenging and having a meal plan put together with easy and delicious recipes was amazing.
Also, having the shopping list for the week on top of it made things super simple. At the time we did the meal plan my husband and I were both working full time. It helped us to do shopping and food prep on the weekends so we’d have week worth of meals planned. Very easy! Going on whole30 with Justin and Erica became our lifestyle. Even after 30 days. We still cook and use their recipes and love it! And we love that it’s a free resource! Thank you!!!
Thank you so much for providing me with the meal plans!
They were tasty and made it easy to make my whole30 a success! I always thought that if someone could just tell me what to eat then I would actually lose the weight…well you made that possible for me.  From the helpful emails to the grocery shopping lists and what to make ahead- everything was well thought out and appreciated! I would feed my family the dinner and sometimes they wanted some of the breakfast as well. My kids and husband loved it!

Our Whole30 experience saves you time

When doing a Whole30, you don’t need any added work or stress.

Who wants to spend time figuring out the Whole30 rules, finding compliant recipes and ingredients and organizing a meal plan for the week?

Instead, why don’t you just print off our weekly meal plan and shopping list?

To save time, the plan is portioned perfectly to utilize leftovers for most of the lunches. It also has make-ahead breakfasts that save you time because you don’t have to cook every single meal each day.

We started creating free Whole30 meal plans and recipes several years ago, and we’ve been asked a lot of questions from our meal plan users over the years.

  • What do I put in my coffee in the morning?
  • Can I have snacks on the Whole30?
  • What do I do if I can’t eat eggs?

We’ve addressed all of these questions (and more!) in our email series. We also provide you with access to all of our resources, tools, advice and guidance in an easy to digest email format.

Instructions 

  • In a large skillet, over medium heat, add your green pepper and onions to the pan. Cook until the onions are translucent.
  • Add your ground beef. Break it up and stir everything around. Continue to cook on low to medium heat, depending on your stove.
  • While the meat is cooking, toss the cauliflower rice on the stove in a medium sized skillet, over medium heat. Season with salt and pepper. It will cook in just a few minutes. I like to cover my pan so it speeds up the cooking a bit and kind of steams the cauliflower rice.
  • When the ground beef is just about done, add your taco seasoning and stir until the ground beef, green peppers, and onions are coated.
  • When the ground beef is finished cooking, turn off the heat. Turn off the heat on the cauliflower rice, and start making your bowls.
  • Add a bunch of your favorite greens to your bowl first. We use spinach and/or kale usually depending on what is in the fridge. Then add your cauliflower rice next. The ground beef goes on top of the rice. Then add your favorite toppings. We like to put cabbage, fresh tomatoes, olives, avocado, salsa and homemade chipotle aioli.
  • Get to eating these bowls up! They are bursting with flavor and are filling too!

  • Your meal plans were excellent, tasty, and well organized. Getting a weekly email with recipes and a check list for groceries made my Whole 30 journey less intimidating. It helped me to focus on one week at a time. I really believe it helped to make my Whole 30 a success. I lost 19 pounds while eating meals that were delicious and satisfying. My husband was a real fan of them too! Even my coworkers kept asking me for your recipes because, my lunches of leftovers looked and smelled so good they would ask to try a bite. Whole 30 has changed my life! I feel better, my relationship with food is changing, and I’m reaching my fitness goals one week at a time. Please keep doing what your doing y’all! Sincerely greatful!!

    • Thanks so much for giving our meal plans a chance! And thanks for coming back to leave this rating and review. We’re grateful and appreciate the opportunity to support you during your Whole30!

  • It was a wonderful meal plan. Easy to follow recipes without too many steps or “never to be used again” ingredients. The breakfasts were my favorite. Husband and teenager enjoyed dinner recipes as well. Thanks.

  • Your recipes are wonderful and delicious! I would not have made it through my Whole 30 without them. I am keeping the recipes and have made some of them a couple of times already.
    Thanks so much for your help. Sooooo glad I found you guys.

    • Aaaww yay! That totally makes our day! Thanks so much for giving our meal plan a try and also for returning to share how it went. We love hearing about it. 🙂

  • I really appreciated the availability of this menu plan. It did make it possible to do a full month without overthinking it.

    The only downside is there was definitely a lot of wasted food if followed exactly. 3 chicken breasts, 1.5 lbs of ground meat, 1/2 onions etc, are not standard portions when you shop but we’re often the recommended portion to cook. The left over food wasn’t used up in the following recipe.
    The only other downside was the lack of flavour, but it’s based off a Standard American Diet so I wasn’t expecting much in terms of spice.
    I generally doubled all the spices, especially the garlic, which made a huge difference.

    All in all, they’ve done a good job and this would have been a lot harder without this program even though it wasn’t perfect!

  • Great meal plans with wonderful recipes. The breakfast casserole was a hit at my house. I’ll be using the recipes long after my Whole30 round. Thank you for making meal planning much easier!

  • Thanks so much for these meal plans they made my whole 30
    Experience amazing! I lost 22 pounds and feel great! I went from 256 to 234 and am now facing the reintroduction week. My doctor wants me to transition to the Mediterranean diet now and you’ve given me a lot of cooking skills I didn’t have to make that so much easier! This has literally changed my life and turned around a really horrible time in my life into something that have given me a renewed sense of enjoying life (and food) again! Thanks!

    • Thanks so much for taking the time to share your experience with us, Mike! We really appreciate hearing how we have helped you along your healthy journey. We appreciate the opportunity to connect with you and hope to hear more as you continue along your path. Congrats on a successful Whole30 and your renewed sense of life! 🙂

  • We absolutely loved this program and meal plan. The meals were filling and tasted good. We never felt hungry or bored with the food options. Plus, we feel
    Stronger, healthier and have lost weight! We will definitely be continuing on this lifestyle journey!

  • I loved your meal plan! I researched who to go with before I started your plan, and I really felt that you had it all together. Every time I made a meal, I was quite impressed with the results. And your emails were timely and encouraging. Keep up the good work!

  • Great meal plan with a one page grocery list! The meals are very filling and full of flavor too! Definitely would recommend.

  • Great meal plan, recipes, advice and overall support! Couldn’t have done it without y’all! Thank you so much!!

  • Overall, I really enjoyed Whole30… which I did not expect. My biggest challenge was week one– not having the all the sweet and fried food of my hearts desires… phew! And not snacking on the littles food was much tougher than I thought. I was much more cognizant of what I was putting into my mouth/body during Whole30. I didn’t realize how much of a snacker I was! Whole30 was so much more than a success. It really was the push we needed to make changes in our home and a great start to breaking bad habits.

    And the meal plans?! Oh my gosh. L I F E S A V I N G. Preparation was key for my husband and I. Having the meals readily available made sticking with Whole30 (almost) fool proof. I can’t thank RSG enough for creating these meals, plans and grocery lists. The grocery lists themselves made everything a breeze! We are so looking forward to more following along with more meal plans from you! THANK YOU!

  • Justin and Erica have put together a beautiful meal plan with delicious meals that are easy to follow. Its important to have a whole food meal plan as it makes a huge difference in weight loss and resetting your body. Very happy that all meals are dairy free too as this can be an inflammatory marker. Thank you also for places to buy good meats and seafood.

  • This is such a great plan! I love how you are given everything you need to have successful, delicious meals every day. All of the recipes are pretty easy to make and even though no one else in my family is on the Whole 30, my husband and son are also enjoying the recipes. It just shows that being healthy doesn’t have to be boring or bland. Thank you so much! I appreciate the help in my journey to health!

  • I completed whole 30 thanks to the help of real simple good! The recipes were delicious and each day I looked forward to cooking! Thank you so much.

      • It really was. The top things I noticed were a decrease in the achy pain in my joints, my chronic fatigue completely went away, and as an added bonus I lost 3 inches in my waist and 1 in my hips! I know it’s not about weight loss, so I didn’t even weigh myself. Definitely planning on doing another round later this year!

  • Love
    Love love this resource! The meal plans are no question a must! They were easy to follow, normal and not crazy weird recipes no one has ever heard of. Very simple to follow!

  • This plan was so helpful. I was totally overwhelmed and this plan gave me the steps I needed for success. Can not thank you enough ‼️

  • Today is my day 30 and there is NO WAY I could have have been successful without this meal plan. It took the stress away of “what am I going to eat?” and removed the worry of getting bored eating the same thing all the time. While I didn’t love every meal, I ate each one (none were bad – some just weren’t for me), which pushed me out of my comfort zone. I did find several meals that I did really enjoy that will continue to be a part of my regular list of meals I rotate through.

    Justin & Erica, thank you so much for putting this together in such a fantastic way to make this journey easier! I truly could not have done it without you!

    • We are very happy to hear that your Whole30 was a success Tracy. We are glad it pushed you out of your comfort zone, that’s great to hear! Wishing you the best as you continue on to find your food freedom.

  • Thanks so much for making my Whole30 possible. I don’t know that I could have done it without these fabulous recipes and ideas. I will continue to use your site, ideas and recipes. I also follow you on IG and love the beautiful, inspiring photos and ideas.

  • Thank you for the meal plan! It really helped us start strong. My husband and I have eaten paleo on and off for the past two years, but we often struggled to come up with filling meals. This plan really helped us to make it through Whole30 strong (we just finished today)! We plan to continue eating paleo and look forward to trying many more of your recipes and plans.

  • Thank you so much for this amazing meal plan and all the delicious recipes! I love how everything was so well organized. My husband and I just completed our first Whole 30, and your meal plans and grocery lists made the shopping and cooking so much easier. My biggest challenge when thinking about doing a Whole 30 was knowing I was going to have to figure out exactly what we were going to eat each day. I love it when other people do the planning — just tell me what to cook and I will cook it, haha! Even our kids (we have 4) liked most of the dinners, which they ate with us, with a few modifications here and there to make them more “kid-friendly.” They didn’t complain too much about eating “mom and dad’s special diet food.”

    • What a great review! We love hearing that you guys found our meal plans and resources helpful, and we especially love hearing that the whole fam enjoyed most of the recipes, too! Thanks so much for taking the time to visit and leave your review and share your experience. We really appreciate it. 🙂

  • This was the 3rd time my husband and I have done Whole30, and your meal plan made it EASY. All of my meal planning was done for me! As a busy mom of 2, this was fantastic and so helpful. I wanted to reset my eating habits after the holidays. This meal plan did just that AND each meal was delicious. The layout was perfect, making it really easy if I wanted to replace an ingredient (ie. mushrooms) since I knew what meal those ingredients went with. My only regret was not getting the Thrive Market starter bundle. It would have made my initial shopping trip quicker and I am all about quick and easy.

    A huge THANK YOU for helping me get back on track and I feel fantastic.

  • We absolutely loved this meal plan! It was really easy (and delicious!) to follow thanks to the comprehensive grocery list and breakdown of the recipes by meal types and there was sufficient variety that kept us looking forward to our meals everyday. I actually ended up making a few recipes multiple times because we loved them so much!

  • These plans make doing a whole30 so simple. Everything you need is provided. We fed a family of four so we had to do some modifications but my husband and I enjoyed all the meals-my kids liked about half of them! 🙂

    • We’re so glad to hear it made doing a Whole30 easier for you and your family. And we’re glad to hear the kiddos even enjoyed a good amount of the recipes! Thanks so much for taking the time to come back and share your experience!

  • Such delicious recipes and so easy with the shopping lists and clear recipes! Of course whole 30 recipes are always going to be more labor-intensive than dumping chicken fingers on a tray and serving them with a bag of salad! That’s to be expected! But to take one month of the year and have this amazing couple lay out this entire plan for free, a lifesaver!! (I saved hours on meal planning, no kidding! This takes me forever! ) A couple of family favorites were the shakshuka breakfast bowl (we will be making this for the rest of our lives) and the chipotle beef burger bowls. Thank you two for all of your hard work and awesome recipes!

    • You’re so welcome, Christine! We’re happy to hear our meal plans helped make doing a Whole30 a little easier and saved you time. And we love that you found some new favorite recipes to enjoy, even after your Whole30. Thanks so much for coming back to leave a review. We really appreciate it! 🙂

  • I stuck with it for a week and meals were good but not so much for my husband. I would try again if I didn’t have to cook two different meals.

  • I found the meal plan, grocery lists, make ahead options and overall guidance SO HELPFUL!!!! I was skeptical of some of the recipes because I don’t like certain foods, but stuck to the plan and was truly surprised at how much I loved everything. I doubled recipes and fed my family what I was eating and if I knew they wouldn’t like it I froze portions to use for next month. Thank you so much – this played a huge part of my Whole30 success! Started round 2 😊

  • This had been my best round of the Whole30 and it is because of this meal plan. I was not as reliant on meat sticks and Larabars because I always had Whole30 ingredients and meals ready to eat or make. The meals were delicious and easy to make and I learned some new ways to cook along the way!

  • This meal plan made Whole30 so easy and so manageable! My husband and I did it together and honestly we really didn’t have to think about anything, which really works for our busy schedule with 2 littles. Our absolute favorite was the meatballs! Yum! Also, the breakfasts were all so so good! We had so much success with Whole30 and this meal plan. My husband and I both lost over 10 lbs! 😳😍 Real Simple Good is THE BEST name for everything they do! So thankful for this blog and the meal plan!

  • The organization (hello, shopping list!) is just WONDERFUL and the meals are flavorful and quick!! Honestly, following this plan was a DELIGHT and made my life so much easier (and more fun!!). Also, helped me drastically cut down on food waste (: 100% recommend giving this a try! Loved it so much i’ve moved on to their paleo meal plans (: Thanks for sharing this with us, you two!

  • Thank you for putting all of the meals together.
    It definitely made it easier to get started and gave me some new recipes.

  • I absolutely loved the ease of your whole30 meal plans. I wouldn’t have made it through without them! I did a click list for each week so that I can easily repeat recipe weeks even after I finish. The recipes were AMAZING! My favorites were: Chicken Buddha bowls (#1), Coffee Rubbed Steak, Spicy Thai Chicken, Sausage and sweet potato hash….I could go on. So many yummy recipes. I’m thinking about continuing with your Paleo recipes. Thanks so much for making this 30 days doable!

  • Thank you, thank you for the weekly meal plan and shopping list. Your recipes are tasty, easy to prepare, easy to understand, and having them has freed me from food obsession. This is round 2 for me and because of your gift of a well laid out plan and shopping list for each week I have stayed true to the program this time. I love to cook creatively and have been used to having a “grocery store’s worth of stuff in my kitchen, but with this well thought out plan there is almost no food waste in my kitchen. So please know I am shouting “Thank You, Thank You” for such practical help.

    (Additional note: Trying to get started I made a mistake by signing up twice inadvertently on this site causing a recipe mix up which Justin graciously helped unravel.) This is an A++ host/site!

    • Hi Linda – Thank you so much for this review, you made our day! I’m glad I could help get the recipe mix up sorted out and we truly appreciate your review and feedback. Please let us know if we can help in any way and we hope you find many more recipes to enjoy on our site after your Whole30 is over 🙂

  • I am really enjoying your recipes. I haven’t followed the meal plan exactly but we are picking and choosing the recipes that sound good. As someone else commented I haven’t needed to cook as many recipes each week as you suggest but I really appreciated the ideas to get started with the Whole 30.

    • Thanks Kellie, I’m glad the plan is helpful and you’re able to make it work for you. Thanks for coming back to leave a rating and review, we appreciate it 🙂
