The Ultimate Whole30 Whole Foods Grocery List

The Ultimate Whole30 Whole Foods Grocery List

When we say ULTIMATE we mean THE ULTIMATE Whole30 Whole Foods Grocery List. Yes, that’s right! This has it all! 

You see, Whole Foods is kind of like our adult version of a candy store. We love everything about it. The fresh produce, the new product finds the healthy convenience food items, etc. So, you can bet that we spent quite a bit of time in here taking photos of all the Whole30 foods and products we love. 

If you aren’t privy to a Whole Foods in your area, we are sorry. But, the good news is that you can still take this guide and make it work at most grocery store. Yes, they won’t all have the same brands, but there are a lot of alternatives out there. Just make sure to read your ingredient labels (if they have one!). 

Of course, we put everything in this Ultimate Whole30 Shopping Guide, but the real focus is on the convenience items because let’s be real. The Whole30 journey is definitely not as easy as your everyday meal prep and requires much more planning. Luckily, we are here to help!

Are you ready to start your Whole30?

Did you catch all of that? It’s a good thing this resource isn’t going anywhere! It’s here for whenever you need to look back.

The first few times you head out shopping for your Whole30 it will take you a bit longer. Plan ahead. Be ready to read labels, walk through the isles and really spend some time diving in and learning the foods. Or, keep it simple and stick to the basics like fruit, vegetables, healthy fats and protein sources. These require no label reading.
