Approved Foods Questions


Recommended Posts

Hi All

My wife and I are new to the program and due to where we live Whole30 Approved items in the grocery store are very limited as well as expensive. .  We are retired and living on a fixed income so buying only Whole30 approved items is too costly.  As long as we follow the program rules and pay close attention to labels etc. we are assuming this is acceptable?

Thank You

I've also done several rounds without ever using an "approved" item. I skipped them partly due to budgetary reasons and partly due to a sense of adventure. I had fun making my own sauces, condiments, etc., and still do it sometimes now. I enjoyed learning what all goes into things to bring out certain flavors, and it really inspired me to keep learning after my official rounds. I also really like being able to completely customize everything, so I can easily skip herbs I don't prefer and add or increase the ones I really like, making it a taste that's truly my own.

This!! I really love making my own sauces and dressings and I find it really satisfying.
