You Can Find A Bunch Of Whole-30 Approved Snacks On Amazon
When it comes to weight loss or improving your eating style for good, the key to leaving your bad eating habits behind is creating a healthy relationship with food. That's what the Whole30 diet aims to help you do.
The Whole30 diet is an elimination-style eating plan that gradually eliminates whole food groups like dairy and processed junk foods that may (for some people) trigger inflammation and upset stomach. Instead, you can load up on whole foods, like unprocessed meats, seafood, and veggies. Ideally, it should help you pick up on food sensitivities which you may not know you have. "I use it commonly in my nutrition practice, and I’ve seen firsthand how it can eliminate cravings, balance blood sugar, and heal my client’s digestive tract,” says nutritionist Diana Rodgers, RD, a consultant for the Whole30 program and creator of the Sustainable Dish podcast.
Can you eat snacks on the Whole30 diet?
Though you should ideally aim to eat three large, high-quality meals and avoid snacking on Whole30, things happen and hunger can strike at any time (and if you're pregnant, nursing, or especially active, you’ll need to eat more frequently throughout the day). So, it's probably a good idea to keep a snack stash just in case. Rodgers recommends choosing natural, whole-food options that are high in protein or healthy fats from animal and plant sources that are minimally processed, like coconut oil, olive oil, ghee, almond butter, coconut (shredded, flaked or coconut milk), seeds, and avocado.
