Umeboshi

Recommended Posts

I'm a fan of sometimes having an umeboshi plum after dinner, more for the taste (yes, really) than any of the proclaimed health benefits. Can I still have this during a Whole 30 or should I wait until I'm done?

If all the ingredients are compliant, pickled plums are fine. I looked up the Eden Organic brand and it listed...

 

Umeboshi Plums, Sea Salt, Beefsteak Leaves (shiso)

 

All these are fine.

Thanks for posting this question, Honey Sue. I've never even given umeboshi a second glance because I always assumed they were super sweet and would wake up my sugar dragon. They just look sticky sweet in the package and I never even knew they were pickled! I am going to give them a try. I like to add new foods to my list.

Fair warning: they are SALTY! I love the ume plum vinegar, but I can't really take the plums themselves except in the context of a rice ball (ratio: tiny sliver of plum to big ball of rice...not whole30, obviously). I've never heard of anyone eating them alone like the op.

Thanks, missmary! This is good to know.
