Whole30 Approved Snacks: Compliant Snacks For On The Go

Whole30 Approved Snacks


What Are Whole30 Approved Snacks?

While doing Whole30, you may find yourself needing to snack while on the run. Of course, Whole30-friendly snacks can’t be picked up too easily at your nearest 7 Eleven, so you’ll want to prep ahead of time and make sure you have a small stock of Whole30 approved snacks in your arsenal.

Whole30 snacks are snacks that you can eat while on your Whole30 diet that are compliant and aligned with the Whole30 whole eating philosophy. The snacks listed here are Whole30 compliant, with many snacks here even being officially endorsed by Whole30, so you know you’re in good foodie hands!

While these vendors provide Whole30 approved snacks, they may also provide a few offerings that are not compliant, so as always, make sure to double check your labels to be safe before ordering!

Official Whole30-Endorsed Protein Bars

  • Primal Pacs. Jerky, protein bars, and other Whole30-approved meat snacks.

  • J. says:

    Does whole foods have a whole30 designated section?

  • Frances Casale says:

    Are plantains a whole 30 food???

    • Nat says:

      Yes but they would be better dried, like plantain chips, rather than sweet fried plantains because of the sugar content.

    • Susie Berelsman says:

      I actually pan fried a yellow plantain in a non stick skillet with only a tbl of canola oil and it was fantastic! Just those 2 ingredients…does the whole30 view a plaintain raw vs the 2 ingredient that I did? can anyone answer this?

      • LifeHealthHQ says:

        Canola oil isn’t ideal – it’s usually only allowed for when you eat out. Try olive oil or coconut oil instead. Frying stuff is a questionable move on Whole30 – don’t overdo it!

    • LifeHealthHQ says:

      Just FYI, plantains are still fine, but as of 3/2017, all “chips” of any kind are no longer allowed on Whole30 – https://whole30.com/2017/03/chips-and-aminos/

  • M. Wood says:

    FYI Reading ingredients online it looks like some Epic bars may have brown sugar which is not Whole30 compliant.

    • LifeHealthHQ says:

      Thanks for the heads up! Looks like the Bacon, Chicken Sesame, Beef Apple, Turkey Almond, Beef Habanero, Chicken Sriracha, Pulled Pork, Lamb Currant, Salmon, are Venison are OK. The Bison Bacon Cranberry and the Wild Boar Bacon are not compliant, as they contain brown sugar.

  • Peggie Sue Ford says:

    Is dried cranberries ok to snack on

  • Tarsha says:

    Can I have seaweed chips as a snack?

  • DisneyD says:

    I have spent hours looking at labels when I shop– and I wish there was an app that I could just look up to see if an item was compliant. Is there such a thing??

    • LifeHealthHQ says:

      I looked into this after you asked about it – the apps ShopWell and ipitt are decent. You can use them to scan a label and it will show all the ingredients, plus highlight in red ingredients you want to avoid (based on preferences you set up earlier). You can set it up to highlight in red allergens like peanuts, dairy, etc, but there aren’t paleo specific settings. Still, it’s better than nothing I think!

  • sweeney says:

    any crackers ok?

  • Gail says:

    are water chestnuts approved?

  • Donna says:

    Are Country archer beef sticks approved?

    • LifeHealthHQ says:

      Looks like some could be OK – you need to check ingredients for each one. Some have sugar as an ingredient, which is a no.
