Shopping for your Whole30 food can sometimes be intimidating. Reading labels and looking for non-compliant items takes some getting used to. I do a lot of my shopping at Sprouts, and I have put together a list of items that are Whole30 compliant to hopefully make your Whole30 a little easier. There are a lot more than what I have posted, but these are some of my favorites. Many of these items can be found at other stores or online if you don’t have a Sprouts in your area.
Sprouts Shopping List
Let’s start with some compliant drinks. You can find several brands of sparkling water that are unsweetened as well as unsweetened coconut water and tea. There are also a variety of non-dairy milks available. Keep an eye out for added sugars and carrageenan.
Mayo, mustards, oils, and dressings
Primal Kitchen has compliant mayonnaise, oils and dressings. They also have ketchup available, which I just recently saw at my local Sprouts. There are several compliant oils; olive oil, coconut oil, avocado oil are my favorites.
Pickles, sauerkraut, salsa and guacamole often have sugar. These don’t. Please make sure you read your labels.
There are several varieties of canned fish that are compliant at Sprouts. Tuna, salmon, shrimp, clams, mussels, anchovies. Look for added sugars, wine, and non-compliant oils.
Bacon-one of my favorite foods and something I eat often. Here are a few compliant options.
Additionally, here are some of my favorite easy meal proteins that are Whole30 compliant. Safe Catch has single serving tuna and salmon pouches that are also a great protein option.
Sprouts has a variety of sauces that are good and compliant as well. There are far more that what I have pictured. Just keep an eye on added sugars, non-compliant oils and added dairy.
Peanut Butter is not allowed on Whole30, but these nut butters are all ok. There are more options, but these are some of my favorites.
Frozen veggies can be a good time saver. Here are some that are Whole30 compliant. Hash browns and frozen potatoes are hard to find without soybean oil and additives that are not compliant. Here are some riced cauliflower and riced broccoli that are both compliant.
Dried Fruit and Jerky
These are good to add to meals or if you need on-the-go meals, or if you need a snack between meals. Remember, it is best to avoid snacking between meals, however, if you are truly hungry between meals make sure your snack has at least 2 of the 3 macros. Protein and carbs, Protein and Fat, or Fat and Carbs.
Many store-bought jerkies have added sugar or soy so make sure to read the labels. Dried fruit often has added sugar and/or added sulfites, so again, read your labels.
