What the Whole 30 Plate Will Look Like


When eating from the Whole 30 eating plan you should eat 3 good meals a day.

Each plate needs to consist of:

1-2 palm sized protein sources (see picture)

Fill the rest of the plate with vegetables.

Occasionally add a serving of fruit.

Add Fat to each meal in one of the following ways:
  1-2 Thumb sized portions of oils or fats (olive, animal fats, etc)
  1-2 Thumb sized portions of allowed butters (ghee, coconut butter, nut butters)
  Coconut-1-2 open handfuls
  Olives 1-2 open, heaping handfuls
  Nuts and seeds-one closed handful
  Avacado-1/2 to 1
  Coconut milk-1/4 to 1/2 can





You eat as much as you need to so that you will feel full. Snack as little as possible.

If you are feeling really hungry you are probably not eating enough fat. I know, I know! This is different than what we have been taught the past few years. We just need to be sure we are eating healthy fats.

Don't eat anything a few hours before going to bed.

  1. It does sound like a healthy way of eating. I was taught long ago if you were hungry you weren't eating enough protein :)
