Whole30 can be tough. If you are like most people, the sudden change in diet can be shocking to your body, causing cravings you never thought you would have. But guess what! You are actually allowed to snack! Here are the top four Whole30 snacks to get you through your day as you begin your 30 day journey to a better you.
These bars are simple and to the point. The ingredients are listed right on the front with “no B.S.” for you to see! Avoid the flavors with peanuts or chocolate, but other than that, these bars are a fantastic midday boost when you start to feel sluggish. The ingredients are clean and satisfy any sweet craving. Keep one of these on hand at all times for emergencies or a post-workout boost. Trader Joe's and Whole Foods sell them both individually and by the box!
Not all Larabars are Whole30 approved, but a good portion of them are. If you are looking for a satisfying sweet bite, run to these. Some of our favorite flavors are cashew cookie, apple pie and cherry pie. The best tip for deciding which flavors you can enjoy is to stay away from the flavors with chocolate chips and peanuts! All of the fruit flavors and the chocolate coconut chew are good to go when it comes to snacking on Whole30.
If you are in serious need of a satisfying treat, check out these Epic protein bars. They are made with natural animal proteins with some dried fruits or nuts tossed in. This is a perfect go-to if you are tired of the sweet snacks and crave something savory that's high in protein and lower in fats. With a healthy amount of protein and fat, this bar is sure to satisfy in your hungriest moments. Epic offers a variety of natural products, including various jerky strips, that can also be enjoyed on Whole30, but be sure to read your labels as not all Epic products are Whole30 friendly.
When we hear “Kind,” we immediately think of those simply delicious fruit and nut bars. However, Kind is now making a Whole30-friendly pressed fruit bar that is unlike most dried fruit snacks. Every bar contains a healthy amount of dried and pressed fruit. Some flavors add in chia, coconut and veggies just to up the flavor and nutrition game. The hearty texture and sweet, natural flavors make for a great quick fix for a sweet tooth.
Ultimately the goal of Whole30 is to reprogram your relationship with food and eliminate unnecessary or emotional eating so snack wisely and sparingly! However, if you know you’re going to be out it’s better to be prepared rather than get desperate and break your Whole30 stride!
