8 Must Haves for a Successful Whole30
It Starts with Food
Do not begin your Whole30 with reading the creators of the Whole30’s book – It Starts with Food. The book gives a very detailed outline on what you can eat, why you are currently eating the way you are, meal ideas and more.
Fill this up multiple times a day and bring it with you everywhere. Staying hydrated and drinking ots of water will be a key to your success. Ideally, you will want to be drinking about half of your body weight in water a day in ounces. Don’t want to drink plain iced water? Try teas like Tazo, infused water with herbs like mint, veggies like cucumbers or fruits like oranges or berries. One of my favorite water bottles is the Camelbak eddy.
I kept Whole30 compliant Larabars on hand at all times during my Whole30. Not all of these dried fruit and nut bars are Whole30 complaint though, so be sure to make sure the ones you are picking out don’t contain chocolate chips, vanilla extract or peanut butter. My favorites are Apple Pie and Coconut Cream Pie!
Pick one of these fun kitchen gadgets up ASAP! My kids even love to inspiralize fruits and veggies! One of our favorites are zoodles! This is a fun way to eat your fruits and veggies! There are a few types on the market right now. I have the Paderno World Cuisine brand.
I used my Nutribullet throughout the Whole30 and continued thereafter as well! Some of my favorite ways to use it was for smoothies (made with coconut milk) or grinding up almonds or pecans for homemade flours or Whole30 complaint breading.
Food Storage Containers
After a few days I quickly caught on that the key to surviving my Whole30 was going to be to make sure I had food prepped and ready to go at all times. This meant, I spent one or two days a week prepping for a few days at time: roasting or grilling proteins, baking sweet potatoes, roasting vegetables, peeling vegetables and more. I highly recommend picking up yourself a few food storage containers to keep your meals in to be ready to go.
Misto Olive Oil Sprayer
Have you seen some of the ingredients of nonstick sprays? Trust me, they are far from Whole30 complaint! I love this reusable oil sprayer. You just fill it up with some high quality oils or your favorite Whole30 complaint salad dressings and it mists a nice even mist.
This Ozeri Stone Pan was one of my first posts on this website and I am still using it all of these years later. The natural stone offers a healthy and eco-friendly non-stick option and I love the way my food cooks on it!
