1. Barney Butter Almond Butter with celery sticks
When you’re in the middle of a Whole30, it’s easy to focus on all the things you can’t eat. Keeping compliant spreads, dips, and sauces on hand can help you get creative with the ordinary snacks in your fridge or pantry.
There are so many ways to enjoy this creamy almond butter as a Whole30 snack:
2. Artisana Raw Coconut Butter with sweet potato “toast”
Speaking of tasty condiments, we also love the way Artisana takes one ingredient — coconut — and turns it into something silky, spreadable, and slightly sweet.
Some keto-eating reviewers report eating this raw coconut butter right out of the jar, but we’re not so sure that’s the Whole30 way. Try spreading it on sweet potato “toast,” tossing it with fresh-cut fruit, or stuffing a teaspoon into a juicy date for a luxurious bite.
3. Primal Kitchen Avocado Mayo and Dijon Mustard deviled eggs
Wanna whip up a fun Whole30 snack to share? Deviled eggs are an easy choice.
4. Tessemae’s Organic Creamy Ranch Dressing with veggies
It doesn’t take much effort to slice a cucumber or red pepper, pair it with some baby carrots, and dip ’em in Whole30-compliant ranch dressing. Tessemae’s Organic Creamy Ranch Dressing checks all the right boxes with its emulsification of dairy-free, sugar-free ingredients.
Plus, reviewers call this bottle of ranch a Whole30 must-have.
5. SunButter Organic Sunflower Butter with fruit
One of the easiest Whole30 snacks on the planet is fresh fruit dipped in nut butter. But why not get fancy with creamy SunButter Organic Sunflower Butter? The regular version contains some added sugar, so check the label and make sure you’re grabbing the organic variety. Bon appétit!
6. Primal Kitchen Buffalo Sauce on… anything
Sometimes all it takes is the perfect sauce to zhuzh up plain cauliflower, broccoli, cubed chicken, or even scrambled eggs. Primal Kitchen Buffalo Sauce gets its creaminess from heart-healthy cashews and its spicy kick from anti-inflammatory cayenne peppers.
We think Whole30 snacks get a whole lot easier (and tastier) when paired with the right dipping sauce. If you’re not into this sauce, check out Primal Kitchen’s barbecue sauce or vinaigrette (yep, both play nice with Whole30).
Whether you opt for a bag of the sea salt, sea salt and vinegar, sesame, or wasabi variety, this seaweed is a crunchy snack that rivals Whole30 no-no potato chips.
Seaweed’s omega-3 content makes it super nourishing for your heart and brain. Why not dial up the nutrients while you dial down the processed carbs?
It doesn’t get much simpler than lightly salted oven-roasted cashews.
TBH, RxBars can be kinda controversial on the Whole30 foodie forums. That’s because some of them contain chocolate. Sure, there’s no added sugar, but it’s still chocolate, which isn’t considered Whole30-friendly.
The blueberry RxBars contain no such blurred lines. Like all RxBars, they’re sweetened with dates, made with nuts, and glued together with egg whites.
If blueberries aren’t your thing, look for other RxBar flavors without peanuts, chocolate, or maple.
Like RxBars, some Larabar products contain ingredients that don’t fit the Whole30 plan. Fortunately for lemon lovers, this citrus treat *is* considered Whole30-compliant.
With just six ingredients, including decadent dates and creamy cashews, these sweet treats are easy to toss into your bag or desk drawer for a midafternoon pick-me-up.
Like Blue Diamond’s almond snack packs, Wonderful Pistachios snack bags are just the right size to squash stomach rumbles without spoiling dinner. We call that a #win.
And if you care about flavor (who doesn’t?), you’ve got options. These seaweed snacks come in wasabi, spicy chipotle, olive oil and sea salt, and toasty onion flavors. 🤤
High protein grass-fed beef is an easy snack on a Whole30 plan. You can find the “Whole30 approved” seal right on the CHOMPS packaging.
With the convenience of a Slim Jim (but without all the additives), these jerky sticks are flavored with classic spices: black pepper, red pepper, garlic, and coriander.
More beef?! Yep, but biltong this time. Beef jerky’s dehydration process often creates chewier dried meat, while biltong’s air-drying time leads to a slightly softer texture.
Ounce for ounce, Brooklyn Biltong is also lower in fat but higher in sodium than CHOMPS jerky.
Not sure what kind of meat stick you’re craving? Snag a variety pack of grass-fed beef and free-range turkey from Nick’s Sticks. You’ll get both the original and spicy recipes of each meat, for a total of four flavors of protein-laden Whole30 snacks.
While biltong is soft and jerky is chewy, The New Primal’s beef thins offer a distinct crunch. They’re a great high protein swap for your favorite potato chips (which are, unfortunately, not Whole30-compliant).
These beef thins also come in a barbecue flavor.
While Ayoba’s spicy beef brings the heat, Epic toes the sweet-and-spicy line for the type of folks who love barbecue and hot pepper jelly.
Since most sriracha sauces are not Whole30-compliant (hello, added sugar 👀), Epic beef bites are a pretty fantastic work-around to enjoy your favorite flavors.
Bored by plain ol’ dried beef? Sink your chompers into CHOMPS jalapeño-infused turkey jerky. These Whole30-compliant snacks are made with free-range turkey + a jalapeño-and-spice blend for a spicy kick.
Don’t let the sweet description fool you — these chewy, sesame-laced chicken bites are 100 percent sugar-free. The hint of sweetness comes from dried currants.
Add to that the dried garlic, dried onion, and spicy red pepper flakes and you’ve got a protein nugget bursting with Whole30-approved flavor.
Nitrate-free meat gets the go-ahead from Whole30, but that doesn’t mean you should skip your veggies. Wild Zora delivers the goods when you want a snack that packs in protein *and* plant-based nutrients.
Reviewers say the Mediterranean lamb flavor is especially delicious. They also say these Whole30 bars are soft and satisfying enough to warrant the higher price tag.
If you’re completing the Whole30 reset during one of the chillier months of the year, sipping on bone broth is a perfect way to fill your belly while warming up. TBH, it’s a gluten-free, Paleo-friendly sip and snack for any time of the year.
One cup contains 6 grams of collagen and a whopping 10 grams of protein.
It’s easy to fall back on red meat during Whole30. But don’t forget about seafood! Salmon offers a hefty dose of omega-3 fatty acids and muscle-supporting protein without the added fat of beef.
The rosemary Dijon salmon snack pouch from Safe Catch is deliciously seasoned with herbs like rosemary and thyme. The brand also has other flavors, but always check the ingredients list for Whole30 compliance.
Whole30 is an elimination diet, which can feel kinda, well, limiting.
Your best bet is to nosh on nourishing whole foods — meat, seafood, eggs, plants, and healthy fats (hey-o, oils, nuts, and seeds!). But if you’re reaching for a packaged snack, always check the label for any no-go’s.
To make sure your snack follows the Whole30 rules, just make sure it’s free of:
Following the Whole30 plan doesn’t have to feel like deprivation. There are dozens of packaged snacks and quick recipes that fit within Whole30 *and* satisfy cravings.
Keep in mind that during your Whole30, fresh whole foods are best. But when you’re on the run or need a quick fix, the snacks on this list will have your back.
