10 Whole30-Friendly Products We Love from Whole Foods
Here’s a little fun fact: Whole Foods is the preferred grocery store of Whole30 co-founder Melissa Hartwig. It’s easy to see why — there are a ton of Whole30-friendly options to choose from. To make things a little easier for Whole30 newbs (or if you’re just looking for more options) we put together a short list of some our favorite products to buy from Hartwig’s favorite store.

Dairy is a definite no during Whole30, but alternatives like almond milk are in the clear. This brand even went through additional steps to earn the official Whole30 seal of approval.
Fun fact: New Barn is also Kitchn editors’ favorite almond milk! It made our top 100 list of grocery essentials in our Kitchn 100 program.
If you’re deep into the reset, you’re probably experiencing label-reading fatigue, constantly on the lookout for culprits like added sugar. Rest assured that Tessemae’s has a line of Whole30-compliant dressings (including Creamy Ranch, Creamy Caesar, Habanero Ranch, Lemon Garlic, Balsamic, and Zesty Ranch) that you can use to your heart’s content.
For a comforting, sippable protein boost, consider bone broth. Epic’s version is handcrafted in small batches and made with water, organic chicken, onions, garlic, celery, carrots, sea salt, turmeric, rosemary, and apple cider vinegar.
Canned tuna is a great on-the-go protein option for adding to salads or making tuna sliders. This option from Safe Catch contains lower mercury levels than any other canned tuna on the market and has received a thumbs up from the Monterey Bay Aquarium Seafood Watch list.
You definitely won’t feel that your diet is lacking in meat during Whole30, but many marinated options contain sugar. Verde Farms options like this Green Chimichurri flank steak are good to go.
Peanuts aren’t allowed during the reset (because they are legumes) but this creamy nut butter blend is made with almonds, walnuts, macadamia nuts, and pecans instead.
7. Naked Bacon
During Whole30, bacon is not only allowed, it’s encouraged. BUT only if it is sugar-free, so read those labels! Naked Bacon is Whole30-approved.
Every single option from Cece’s Veggie Noodles is permitted, because they’re nothing but vegetables. The fun shapes and sizes will help avoid any veggie fatigue!
Sauerkraut is a great way to add something salty and briny to dishes.
The only ingredients in this sauce are tomatoes, onions, olive oil, salt, basil, and pepper, so go ahead and add this to all your favorite zoodle dishes.
