    Bacon! Please Help

    FYI, pedersonsfarms makes Fully Cooked Uncured No Sugar Added Hickory Smoked Bacon. It's a little more expensive than grocery bacon, but since it's shelf-stable it can ship anywhere.

    Beef & Mushroom

    I am pretty sure they are all good, I just was hoping to get an expert's eye to confirm out of an abundance of caution.

    365 Pea Protein Powder - OK on Whole 30?

    What Whole 30 purpose could you use a protein isolate for anyway, since smoothies are not allowed?

    Beef & Mushroom

    Could I please get confirmation on Whole 30 for this ingredient list? CHICKEN BONE BROTH, ONIONS, MUSHROOMS, CHOPPED BEEF (BEEF, WATER, SALT), CARROTS, CAULIFLOWER, BEEF GELATIN, ONION POWDER, SEA SALT, GARLIC, CELERY, THYME, DILL WEED, PARSLEY

    Compliant Chicken Broth

    I suspect that what it means is that they're using a fruit or vegetable juice concentrate in the vague "Natural Flavoring" item. Concentrates (when used outside of products which are expected to be a juice), trigger the added sugar item, as per 21CFR101.9.

    I don't have a grill.

    If there's a recipe using a grill, you'd probably need an oven, not a stovetop, to copy it. Even without an oven there are plenty of things to make.

    Go-To Grocery Store Brands and Foods

    Speaking of sausage, pretty sure Wellshire's Smoked Andouille Sausage is compliant. It does have the mysterious ingredient known as "spices" though.

    Go-To Grocery Store Brands and Foods

    Pederson's Natural Farms has a sugar-free bacon with an actual Whole30 logo on it, and is excellent.

    Fresh Market vs. Whole Foods vs. Publix

    Applegate brand has a deli turky with no sugar added. Pretty sure it's Whole30 compliant.

    any Paleo Whole 30 compliant canned soups?

    FYI to anyone that happens to stumble on this old thread: we decided to switch our recipe up and are pretty sure the new one is Whole30-compliant, though it does not have an official endorsement.

    Why the emphasis on homemade mayo?

    There are good commercial mayos. No need to consume questionable canola oil just because you don't want to spend time making mayo.

    Canned broth? (and pork rinds!)

    Having been involved in suppliers sourcing when trying to create a clean-ingredient product, I suspect more often than not "natural flavors" means (or includes) "autolyzed yeast extract."

    Whole 30 approved protein powders

    Huh. I get the idea, but I don't see that anywhere on http://whole30.com/whole30-program-rules/- where did that come from?

    BACON!!

    The above-mentioned Pederson's bacon is excellent. Definitely recommend. So bizarre that most brands add sugar, which adds nothing in terms of flavor. I didn't mention it in the tutorial, but I was using Pederson's bacon in this guide to baking bacon to collect bacon grease: https://trueprimal.com/posts/baking_bacon/

    any Paleo Whole 30 compliant canned soups?

    Good to know as for as program compliance, thanks. I will say though that anyone who buys a lot of peas will eventually get pea pods that made it in there accidentally. The green pea pods seems perfectly edible and taste fine (though seemingly less flavorful than a green bean pod).
