We are almost a week into the new year, which also might mean that you are almost a week into your Whole30, if you’re doing one. Ever since completing my latest Whole30 in December, I have found that my body responds better to 3 large meals and 1-2 small snacks.
In the beginning, it seems that a lot of folks focus on the foods that you can’t eat instead of focusing on all of the delicious foods that you are allowed to eat. I never found myself struggling to find a healthy snack, and today I’m here to show you some of my favorite Whole30 compliant snacks, along with a fun giveaway at the end of the post.
In the beginning, my typical snack would be a sliced banana with almond butter. Whenever I eat fruit, I almost always try to pair it with a healthy fat, such as nuts. I’m not an expert, but I once read that it’s important to pair a sugary fruit with a fat to balance out the sugar, and ever since then, I’ve stuck with it. Plus, I find the pairing of carbs and fat help keep me full longer than just a banana would!
When it comes to almond butter, make sure that it’s just made with almonds and salt. I love the Barney Butter, but sadly it has a non-compliant oil in it, so I stuck to the MaraNatha or Trader Joe’s almond butter.
The one and only time on my Whole30 that I ate an apple. I warmed a sliced apple and topped it with almond butter and cinnamon. It was delicious, but my stomach hates raw apples, so this was a once and done snack for me. I also found that almond butter didn’t sit well with my stomach, so I cut almond butter out about halfway through my Whole30.
THESE guys are the best! I typically had a trail mix packet around 4 pm during the weekdays to tide me over between lunch and dinner. I get these in bulk at BJ’s Wholesale, and they are 100% Whole30 compliant!
I’m one of those individuals who are oddly obsessed with slivered almonds, so I often would sprinkle some on top of a sliced banana. I like getting a bit of crunch with each bite!My favorite snack ever. I could eat roasted plantain chips all day long! I always pair these with a packet of almonds because I like a healthy fat to balance sugary fruit.Larabars, a delicious life saver of mine! These full-sized bars are amazing and good for when you’re in a time crunch.But when you just need a little bit of food to tide you over for maybe an hour or less, the Larabar minis are your best friend. Even better, as a Larabar ambassador, I’m going to giveaway 2 prize packs of mini Larabars.
One winner will receive a package of Whole30 compliant Larabars, and that winner will be chosen from the comments, so in order to win that, just tell me in your comment that you’re currently on your Whole30, and a current struggle or anything about how it’s going so far.
The second winner will win a package of non-Whole30 Larabars, in my two favorite flavors, Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip & Peanut Butter Cookie. In your comment, tell me which you’d rather try more, the PB Cookie or the PB Chocolate Chip!
What is your favorite Whole30 snack?
