Vegan Whole30 Recipes
Guess who is back to do the whole30 program? I am!
With January just around the corner, I’m ready to embark on the whole30 diet again and doing it completely plant-based.
The holiday season really did one on me this year- Desserts, heavy meals and multiple holiday parties have really thrown my body into a loop.
While I certainly enjoyed time and meals with loved ones, I’m ready to give my body a break and reset it back into it’s a more healthier, nourishing way of eating!
For those who follow a vegan or plant-based diet, the whole30 program can be a little difficult to maneuver.
Many whole30 recipes use animal protein, which is a big no-no for those who follow a plant-based or vegan diet!
Can whole30 be vegan?
Whole30 can be vegetarian/vegan/plant-based. I am proof of this! I followed the whole30 diet 3 times, and didn’t touch a single ounce of animal protein!
There is some argument saying that it’s best not to follow any of the above diets while on the whole30 program, with some smart swaps, it is totally possible.
Whole30 approved protein sources aren’t plant-based, there are suitable alternatives which can be included.

- Nuts and seeds (almonds, cashews, sunflower seeds, and pepitas are great!)
- Nut or Seed butter (almond butter, cashew butter, Sunflower seed butter, and coconut butter)
