Hello, 

This is my first Whole30 and I have been reading the books which advise against snacks, but state if you DO need one it's okay. There has been mention of good and bad snacks, all Whole30 compliant, and I am confused as to what makes them good/bad if they are both healthy and compliant? 

Thank you!

Ideally, if you're going to eat between meals, you still want a mix of protein, fat, and vegetables. 

There are a number of reasons some typical snacks are not great. Nuts are very easy to overeat, fruit on its own can cause blood sugar spikes and drops, fruit or sweet tasting bars like Larabars or RX Bars can keep you craving more sweets, especially if you're using them to replace a snack that would usually be a cookie or a sweetened coffee drink or other sweets. So, you could eat any of those things for a snack, but they might not be your best option if you really want to work on changing your habits.
