Whether you’re a newbie to the Whole30 diet or this isn’t your first rodeo, it can be challenging to find Whole30-compliant snacks that are both healthy and delicious.
As the Whole30 plan is a modified version of the paleo diet, eliminating grains, dairy, alcohol, sugar, beans, legumes, soy, and ultra-processed or fried foods, you can imagine that many of your typical snacks are a no-go during this month.
But not to worry—we’ve got you covered with ten of the best Whole30-approved snacks to keep you going with a tasty and nutritious treat to fight the “hangry” feelings while still keeping you Whole-30 compliant.
Top 10 Best Whole30 Snacks
1. Primal Kitchen Deviled Eggs with Avocado Oil Mayo
Okay, we get that these aren’t really “on-the-go” friendly (well, technically, anything can be eaten on the go if you aren’t afraid of a little mess).
But Primal Kitchen leads the pack when it comes to Whole30-approved condiments and dressings, as they are made with heart-healthy avocado oil.
To make deviled eggs Whole30-compliant, all you need to do is swap out your typical mayo made with soybean oil for avocado oil mayo from Primal Kitchen.
Eggs are the perfect food for the Whole30 diet, as they are packed with satiating protein, healthy fats, and micronutrients.
RXBars are gluten-free protein bars that are low in added sugar and contain real food ingredients.
Some RXBars—like Chocolate Sea Salt and Banana Chocolate —are debated in the Whole30 community, as the “chocolate flavor” isn’t always considered Whole30-friendly. For a safer bet, try the Blueberry, Mixed Berry, and Vanilla Almond RXBars for a quick and easy Whole30-approved snack to throw in your bag.
We’re taking it from land to the sea with SeaSnax roasted seaweed, providing a light and crispy chip-like consistency that will satisfy your need for a salty Whole30 snack.
Seaweed is rich in healthy omega-3 fats, which are beneficial for your heart and brain, as well as the minerals calcium, magnesium, potassium, and iron.
In addition to the classic Sea Salt flavor, SeaSnax also carries Chipotle, Wasabi, Jalapeno, Lime, and Onion flavors.
Although you can definitely eat these straight out of the package, you can also wrap them around avocado and veggies for a sushi-like snack or crumble them over salads or egg dishes to add a salty umami flavor.
Although peanut butter is a no-go on the Whole30 plan, almond butter is a great alternative.
Almond butter has similar calories and fat but more micronutrients than peanut butter, including almost three times as much vitamin E, double the amount of iron, and seven times more calcium than peanut butter.
Barney provides convenient travel packs that you can squeeze onto fruits and veggies, or even straight into your mouth—we won’t judge.
Compared to many brands of almond butter that are gritty-textured or slightly bitter, Barney blanches the almonds to remove the skins, providing an ultra-smooth and balanced taste and texture.
These gluten-free crackers are made with almond flour, sunflower seeds, flax seeds, cassava root, and some herbs and spices—and they taste delicious, too.
However, some die-hard Whole30 followers might argue that Simple Mills crackers are technically a “baked good”—so, despite being made with Whole 30-friendly ingredients, they might be on the no-no list.
Food is for physical wellness, and pharmaceutical products are for mental health conditions—that’s where most of us land when it comes to nutrition psychiatry.
Nutrition is understandably not priority one in the chaotic moments immediately following a traumatic brain injury (TBI), but as soon as the patient is stable, nutrition therapy shares center stage with other key tenets of TBI rehabilitation.
Normally, we’re content to bounce around new and/or controversial theories on nutritional concepts all day, but every so often, we have the luxury of seeing in black and white.
This may seem like a fun-killing exercise at first, but we’re not interested in coddling or pandering to our readers, so let’s get the harsh reality out of the way: most of us haven’t earned the right to binge on vacation.
