Peanut butter

Recommended Posts

Hi!  I am on day 5 of the Whole 30 and was wondering why Peanut butter is banned.  I love peanut butter and see that you can have other nut butters but peanuts are specifically banned. Any advice on the why would be much appreciated!  

 

I think maybe I need to do more reading still - I kind jumped into this and am still catching up on figuring everything out :)

 

 

Thanks!!

Peanuts aren't actually nuts - they're legumes, and legumes are off limits for Whole30.

Nut butters (and nuts) in general can be food-with-no-brakes for a lot of people, so just keep tabs on how often you're wanting to eat them!
