Monday: Maple-Glazed Ham, mixed veggies and blueberries
1 ham, bone-in
1/2 cup pure maple syrup
1/4 cup coconut oil
pinch cayenne pepper
Preheat oven to 300 degrees and line a broiler pan with foil. In a small saucepan, heat maple syrup, coconut oil and cayenne pepper to boiling. Reduce heat, simmer for a few minutes, and remove from heat. Place ham on broiler pan, and baste with syrup mixture. Bake for about 2.5 hours, basting every 1/2 hour or so. Check temperature, and if it’s at 160 degrees, you’re done! Otherwise, keep baking until 160 degrees is reached.
Tuesday: Chicken-Bacon-Broccoli Stir Fry, carrots and strawberries
2 lbs boneless, skinless chicken thighs
1/2 lb bacon, chopped
3-4 cups chopped broccoli
salt and pepper to taste
Heat a large skillet over medium heat, and add bacon. Cook until starting to crisp, then add chicken and broccoli. Cook until chicken is done and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Wednesday: Herbed Salmon, roasted spaghetti squash and fruit salad
4 salmon filets
4 TBSP coconut oil
Herbes de Provence
Raise oven temperature to 375 degrees. Place salmon filets individually on pieces of foil. Put 1 TBSP coconut oil on each filet, then sprinkle with Herbes de Provence and garlic salt:
Seal each filet in the foil and place in oven for 15-20 minutes, until salmon flakes easily. Remove from oven and serve over spaghetti squash.
Thursday: Leftovers from previous days
Friday: Pork steak with Balsamic Reduction, cauliflower and grapes
4 pork butt steaks
1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
2 TBSP honey
1/4 cup chopped fresh basil
4 TBSP olive oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
salt and pepper
Preheat broiler and line a broiler pan with foil. In a small saucepan, bring balsamic vinegar, basil, garlic, cayenne, olive oil, a bit of salt and pepper, and honey to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until the sauce has thickened a bit (about 10 minutes). Place chops on broiler pan, sprinkle with salt and pepper and broil about 6-8 minutes per side, until done. Top with balsamic reduction and enjoy!

Love all of your delicious recipes! I am looking forward to making the ham tomorrow night. How big of a ham do you buy? And, do you put on all of the syrup mixture before baking it, or put a little bit on every 30 min? I’ve never cooked a ham before and just wanna make sure I get it right on the first time around! Thank you so much!
Hmmm…mine was an average ham, probably 4-5 pounds? I basted it before putting it in the oven, and then added more syrup every 30 minutes or so. Hope that helps!

Hey!!! Thanks for this meal plan! It’s awesome!!! I’m going to be starting another Whole30 pretty soon so this comes at the perfect time!
Question about the ham… Can I roast it in a crock pot instead? Any thoughts?
If there’s not a lot of fat on your ham, it should work! Let me know if it turns out!!
