Preparation is key for a successful Whole 30! And in the first order of business in preparing is to make sure that you have items on hand that you’ll need to successfully finish this challenge. If you live in a food desert or far away from Whole Foods, Trader Joes, and other natural food stores, you may find it challenging to find compliant items.
Here are a list of items that are available to purchase from Amazon that will help to set you up for success on your Whole 30 challenge. Most of the items will ship to you for free with Amazon Prime or a $35 purchase.
