Day 20: Whole30 (Tasty Resources)

From the Whole30 Daily (a daily support newsletter you can subscribe to for $15, and is actually worth it, for the intense coverage and comprehensive approach of W30 issues) comes this list of handy resources for Whole30 goodness:

  • Ghee. Ghee, a form of clarified butter, is a yummy Whole30-approved fat source. You canmake your own, or order from Pure Indian Foods: 100% grass-fed, pastured cows raised in a certified organic way. Also, it’s luscious, and comes in flavored varieties.
  • Stronger Faster Healthier Fish Oil. We’ve tried lots of fish oil brands, but we useStronger Faster Healthier’s SO3 Oil for three reasons: squeaky-clean ingredients, more EPA and DHA per teaspoon, and it comes in five delicious flavors (for fish oil). Need more info on omega-3 supplementation? Check out our Fish Oil FAQ.
  • Coconut Milk. Coconut milk is also a luscious source of high-quality fats, but many brands contain added ingredients that we really don’t like. Aroy-D Coconut Milk is preservative-free; the only ingredient is coconut milk, and it’s available in paper cartons, so no worries about BPA. We also like Thai Kitchen, Whole Foods 365, and Native Forest brands.
  • US Wellness Meats. We have just one word: Bacon. Well, it’s really nine words: sugar-free, Whole30 Approved, pork bacon from happy pigs.
  • Coconut Aminos. Asian food can be problematic for Whole30-ers, thanks to sweeteners and the double-whammy of soy and gluten in soy sauce. Say “hello” to coconut aminos! They’re a 100% healthy replacement for soy sauce, so (riceless) sushi, stir-fries, and even pad thai are back on your plate.
  • Adagio Teas. If you’re kicking caffeine as part of your Whole30, you might be craving a warm cup of something soothing. We love all of the caffeine-free options from Adagio Teas, but our favorites are the Rooibus blends. With flavors ranging from vanilla to hazelnut to coconut, there’s something for everyone. Plus, the company has super-friendly customer service and a real connection with their tea growers.
  • Spice Hound. Variety is the spice of life, and spice is the variety in a Whole30. That’s why we love-love-love Spice Hound. With Spice Hound’s high-quality individual spices and sugar-free, Whole30 Approved blends, you’ll be whipping up international meals in no time.
  • Pure Wraps. Sometimes you just want a little something-something rolled up in a wrapper that won’t fall apart like lettuce. Say “hello” to Pure Wraps. Available in original and curry flavors, they’re the Whole30 Approved alternative to traditional tortillas — and they taste great!
  • Primal Pacs and Gourmet Grassfed jerky. Take a bite of Whole30 Approved grass-fed, grass-finished beef jerky. Primal Pacs jerky and snack kits and Gourmet Grassfed Original Bold flavor are what we carry in our pockets for snowboarding, mountain biking, and airplane adventures.
  • Red Boat Fish Sauce. Fish Sauce adds that indefinable but unmistakable depth to Thai and other Asian cuisines. Sadly, most fish sauce includes added ingredients that make it unfriendly to Whole30 eaters. That’s why we love Red Boat Fish Sauce: the only ingredients are wild black anchovies and sea salt.
