Yes. Nuts and seeds and the oils made from them are fats, so you would use other forms of fat instead. If you can have coconut, that would include coconut oil, coconut milk/cream, or coconut butter or flakes. If not, there are olives and olive oil, avocados and avocado oil, and ghee or clarified butter, as well as any oil-based dips or sauces that are made with ingredients that you can have that are also Whole30 compatible.

For what it's worth, I've completed five Whole30s and rarely had nuts and maybe had sunflower seeds once. You can certainly do this without them! Good luck! 

The one tip I'll share is that many pre-made salad dressing are made with sunflower oil. So, if you are in the market for dressing you can buy, check out Primal Kitchen or The New Primal. Theirs are all made with avocado oil. Tessemae's and Whole30 brand are made with sunflower oil.
