I'm excited to give you a list of some of the products I use and love while on the Whole30 Program that will help you enjoy the journey and have more success!
I've also made it very convenient for you to shop my favorites online! I realize some of you might not have access to some of these items, so I've put some of my favorite Whole30 faves on my “Amazon Picks” section to make it super easy for you to shop for them! Click this button below to browse...it has helpful Whole30 books in there too...I’ve also included direct convenient shopping links for you below in the list…I’ve added some new favorites to the list below so make sure to check out both sections.
KOMBUCHA - This is a great fizzy, healthy fermented drink that you should try! Just read your ingredients and make sure you don't see "cane sugar" added on that list. The two brands in the photo above are approved. This makes the perfect "mocktail" too....pour it in a pretty martini glass with a lemon twist and enjoy while you feel fancy!
CAULIFLOWER RICE - This is found at Trader Joe's in the freezer section. It's very convenient to keep a few of these in the freezer during your Whole30! It does sell out because of it's popularity, so if you find it, buy a few!! If you cannot find it, you can always make your own...here's my recipe for cauliflower rice.
RXBAR's and RXBAR Nut Butters - These are the BEST protein bar that is Whole30 compliant. I keep one of these in my bag while on the go in case I get hungry and find myself with nothing compliant to eat nearby. The peanut butter flavor is the only one that is not Whole30 approved. You can find them in some stores or you can get them by clicking the links and getting them delivered right to your door. There are a variety of flavors…I love the Mint!
CHICKEN APPLE SAUSAGE - I usually keep some of these around during my Whole30 for days that I need a break from cooking too much! Just read your ingredients to make sure they are compliant!
COCONUT OIL - This is just essential on the Whole30. It is one of my "go-to" cooking fats and is also excellent blended into coffee!! Try it! Don't just stir it in though, you need to blend it...it will make it frothy and yummy. It keeps you satisfied too because of the healthy fats! Don't be afraid of healthy fats on the Whole30...it's your friend;)
GHEE - This is something I didn't know too much about before the Whole30, so if this is new to you I encourage you to give it a try! It's essentially like butter without the dairy in it! More and more stores are carrying it these days like WholeFoods, Sprouts and Trader Joe's. It's my other "go-to" cooking fat. I’ve linked one of my favorite brands here as it makes a huge difference to get a high quality one.
MUSTARD - This is a great condiment to keep around, just read your ingredients because many mustards have added sugar. I use this for my deviled eggs. Yum.
ALMOND BUTTER - This is a great snack on bananas or apples with a sprinkle of cinnamon. Again, just read your ingredients. I get a "raw" or dry roasted almond butter which means it's literally just raw almonds and salt or not roasted with unhealthy oils. OR make your own...it's easy and less expensive! Here's my recipe for Coconut Almond Butter.
SUGAR FREE BACON - I find Pederson's Natural Farms Sugar-Free Bacon at Sprout's stores. They also have sugar free bacon at Whole Foods. Just read your ingredients! Here's my fun recipe for Bacon Wrapped Sweet Potato Bites that is delicious!
COCONUT MILK - Full fat canned coconut milk is always stocked in my pantry. I use it in my coffee because I'm not a fan of black coffee. It's also used in so many Whole30 recipes and is a great staple to keep on hand during your Whole30. Just read your ingredients, guar gum is approved on the Whole30, it's just a thickener. I’ve linked my FAVORITE brand because the cans are BPA-Free!
BRAGG'S APPLE CIDER VINEGAR - I always have this on hand because I use it in my Homemade Mayo recipe. It gives it that slight "tang" that I love in my mayo! Find my Mayo recipe HERE. It’s so simple to make!
COCONUT AMINOS - This is a great healthy alternative for soy sauce and can be used in many recipes and as a marinade. I’ve linked to my personal favorite brand.
HOT SAUCE - Just read your ingredients...I love Trader Joe's Habanero Hot Sauce.
LIGHT TASTING OLIVE OIL - This is essential for making homemade mayo. If you use regular olive oil, it will taste horrible, trust me. You can also use avocado oil, but I prefer the brand I’ve linked for my mayo. I buy the 2 pack as I make it every week and hate running out! They also carry this 2 pack at Costco!
TESSAMAE'S DRESSINGS, SAUCES & MARINADES - This is a wonderful, compliant brand!! Easy to shop online in case it's hard for you to find. I also love these convenient packs of salad dressing for on the go!
LA CROIX SPARKLING WATERS - I just LOVE these. The flavors are amazing and they keep you from getting bored because they have so many flavors. These will make your Whole30 more enjoyable;) ...and yes, put some in a fancy glass for a "mocktail"! They carry these at Target Stores and most grocery stores. Other Sparkling Waters I love are Waterloo (tastes AH-mazing) and Topo Chico is my favorite plain Mineral Water that comes in a nice glass bottle and I consider it the champagne of sparkling.
SAFE CATCH TUNA - I love this brand because it's 100% mercury tested. It tastes amazing. They carry it at Sprout's or I’ve linked to it here for easy online shopping.
SALSA - This is a big one to make sure you read your ingredients on as sneaky sugars can be in many brands. I love Trader Joe's red and green salsas. Great on eggs and great to cook with!
PRIMAL KITCHEN condiments - These are ALWAYS around when I’m on a Whole30 or not. It’s my go-to mayo if I haven’t made my own. Their dressings are so delicious!
NEW PRIMAL BEEF THINS - These are delicious jerky like snacks and a great on the go protein source! New Primal also has AMAZING condiments and some of the best BBQ sauces!
These are a few of my favorite compliant items I hope you'll try to make your Whole30 more enjoyable! Remember to eat REAL WHOLE FOODS as much as possible while on the Whole30, but if you are buying something that is packaged....just remember the golden rule and READ YOUR INGREDIENTS!
Happy Whole30-ing everyone! You got this!!
