High protein snacks can keep you fuller for longer. If you are on the Whole30 reset diet, you’re probably missing some of the foods you have cut out of your diet, so it’s important to ensure you don’t leave yourself feeling hungry for long periods, because cravings can get the better of you.
The protein you’re allowed to eat on the Whole30 diet needs to be high quality, so in some of these recipes that require bacon, you need to find the Whole30 approved kind. The Whole30 website explains more about bacon and what kind you can and can’t eat. In short, uncured bacon free from nitrates is preferred.
When it comes to Tuna, you’ll need to watch out for mercury and ensure that the brand offers high quality tuna with the lowest possible levels of mercury. Again, the Whole30 website as more about this and in 2019, Safe Catch was approved as part of the Whole30 diet. It offers low levels of mercury and is even safe for pregnant women.
Eggs are another source of protein and have always been on the Whole30 approved list of foods.
