Whole30 Snacking

I read this week that snacking is discouraged on the Whole30. The website states:

(…)eating three meals each day with minimal snacking (except pre- and post-workout meals) helps to keep your hormones in a healthy rhythm and teaches you to focus on eating mindfully. However, it’s really okay if you find you have to eat between meals.  For folks who are used to eating six small meals, it might take some time to get used to eating just three big ones. For those who work really long days, you might find that four meals or three meals and a snack are in order. For kids and pregnant/nursing mothers, this recommendation goes right out the window; snack away (just make sure you’re leaving about 3 hours between eating sessions, and not grazing all day). Sometimes, for no apparent reason, you just need a little something to get you through, and that’s okay too.  The success of your Whole30 likely isn’t riding on whether or not you have a mini-meal a few afternoons.

So, pretty much it’s okay to snack during the Whole30 if you need to. Well, I enjoy my snacks through the day and I think that with any “diet” or “cleanse” you need to find the thing you enjoy while still following the rules. I enjoy snacking and I thnk about food a lot so if I had to ONLY eat 3 meals a day it would drive me crazy and this Whole30 thing just wouldn’t work out.

With that, I have had some AWESOME snacks. And I REALLY want to share them with you. Check it out:

Bacon Wrapped Dates. (my #1 snack I have made)

3-Ingredient Energy Bars (I used dates, almonds, and dried peaches from Trader Joes)

Jesse’s Lemon Balls  (I never actually made these, my friend Jesse did, and they were amazing. She also made them with dried cranberries instead of dates and both were great)

RxBars (These are Whole30 approved and delicious)


For some people, 30 days is such a long time, but enjoy it and take these days to try new things you never would have before. It’s a lot of fun and you might find out how much you really like something by trying it.

About Us
This blog is brought to you by Dan & Kyla. Both of us are dedicated to eating as healthy as possible, working out, being active, and challenging ourselves to experience everything life has to offer. Our Sunday 'prep day' has helped us grow closer as a couple and has allowed us to enjoy our seldom 'cheat days' to the fullest. Friends and family have always had questions about our weekly rituals and recipes so we thought we would share how we go week to week, finding recipes, cooking our meals, and managing our busy lifestyle with a health conscience view. This is the first blog we have created together and will hopefully get progressively better with our posts and feedback. Please feel free to post any comments or questions about a recipe, or ideas on how to make the recipe or website better. Most of all we hope you enjoy what we have to share. Guten Appetit!
