Menu Plan Monday: Whole30 Wrap-Up & Snack Ideas

Be sure to check out my other posts on saving money on whole foods, where to find some of the crazy Whole30 ingredients, and my list of must-haves for doing Whole30.

Banana-Parfait

Today is Day 30 of our Whole30 challenge. Yay! It’s been quite an experience. We’ll be slowly adding foods back in to see if any trigger problems. We’re starting with dairy tomorrow. (So homemade vanilla ice cream for breakfast would be a bad thing??)

We’ll definitely be keeping many of the new eating habits we established over these 30 days. In fact, there are foods in our cupboards that I’m going to be getting rid of. Now that I see how good I feel from eating real food, I don’t know that I can go back to the processed way of life.

Whole30 Snacks

One of the biggest changes for us has been our snacking. Instead of grabbing a handful of pretzels when the munchies strike, we’ve had to think more about our snacks. Here are some of our favorite snacks from our Whole30 experience:

Almonds
Fruit
Veggies
Hard-boiled eggs
Homemade laraballs
Larabars
Banana bread muffins
Apple muffins
Celery and almond butter
Real fruit leather
Apples with almond butter
Smoothies
Banana ‘ice cream’
Kale chips
Chiquita Super Crunchy Fruit Chips

Feel free to share your Whole30-friendly snack ideas and links in the comments. We’re probably going to be taking most of our snack ideas from this list in the future.

  1. Congratulations! Your family is an inspiration for me to strive better at at healthier food options. Thanks for sharing your journey and recipes .

  2. I was just looking into snack ideas for the Whole 30 my hubs and I are doing, currently on day 12! Just noticed that you had muffins on the list, and those are not Whole 30 compliant- NO baked goods! Just didn’t want others to get confused when they see that. Thanks for the other ideas!

    • The muffins do use Whole30 ingredients. It just depends on how strictly you’re doing the Whole30. If you’re looking for food sensitivities (which we were) then they work. If you’re doing it to kick sugar cravings, then avoid the baked goods.

  3. On the yummy looking blueberry parfait- Did you use canned coconut or the carton coconut milk? thanks!
