What is the Whole30 Diet?

by Fabian Jackson

3min read

In a world full of dietary variations, how can you find the perfect fit for you? Keep reading to learn about the Whole30 and how it can complement your vegan diet.

Whole30 Diet

This diet is all about celebrating whole foods and the numerous health benefits that can come with it. It focuses on proteins, the nutrients available in fruits and vegetables and unprocessed foods.

Its closest comparison might be the Paleo diet as participants are encouraged to abstain from eating sugars, grains, dairy, alcohol, and legumes as they believe these affect weight, energy, and stress levels. But it goes one step further than the Paleo restrictions as on top of refined sugars, you’re also not allowed natural sweeteners like maple syrup. 

Unlike other fad diets, the Whole30 isn’t focussed on losing weight or aesthetic goals, in fact, calorie-counting and weigh-ins are discouraged. 

Is the Whole30 Diet vegan?

The Whole30 Diet isn’t exclusively vegan as partakers are advised to eat meat, seafood and eggs even if dairy and honey are off the table. 

According to the organisers, it isn’t strictly the Whole30 if you’re not including daily animal proteins in your diet, but they still welcome different approaches and want to focus on the commonalities of their growing community. 

Vegan Whole30 meals and recipes

Here are a few tasty plant-based recipes that would work well as part of your new vegan and Whole30-inspired diet.

vegan and grain free

A nutritious and filling vegan Whole30 breakfast could be our crunchy grain-free granola (although fair warning, you’ll have to omit the maple syrup in favour of some sweetness from fresh fruit instead). Or our tasty recipe for Mexican-inspired vegan breakfast tacos would work a treat too.

For bigger meals later on in the day, we’d recommend our citrus roasted beets with toasted pistachios or even this parsnip and Brussels sprouts bake!
