Even if you don’t have plans to do a Whole30, these healthy kitchen essentials are versatile and go a long way! These are products we love and have incorporated into our daily or regular rotation. I’ve also included discount codes to stock up during your reset along with my January Whole30 essentials and new things at the top of my list to try.
If you’re doing a Whole30 this month or want to treat someone who is, I’ve got you covered!
My advice: If you’re a first timer don’t feel like you need to buy all the things! Start with the free resources online or The Whole30 book (a great guide + cookbook in one) and then pick a few items you think you’ll use most to start. (And remember these are great items to have but you don’t NEED them to do a successful Whole30. They just come in handy!) You can always branch out and add to your collection as you go…
1 / Vital Proteins Unflavored Collagen Peptides: I use two scoops of these Whole30 approved peptides in my coffee daily for stronger hair, nails, and more hydrated skin! The unflavored variety can be added to many things and give you the most bang for your buck! Vital Proteins Sampler Boxes are a great way to try before you commit to the full size.
2 /Primal Gourmet Cookbook is filled with must have Whole30 and Food Freedom recipes! Under $20! Tons of pictures and easy to follow, I love the chapter on sauces and dressings and have bookmarked several new recipes to try…
Two more favorite Whole30 Cookbooks:
No Crumbs Left Cookbook is a favorite for the Whole30 foodie’s cookbook collection! Beautiful entree salads, Magic Elixirs such as Teri’s famous Marinated Onions, and more. Another idea: a piece of gorgeous, handmade No Crumbs Left Pottery! I love my Marinated Onion Bowl and I have my eye on the tiny prep bowls and the Everything Bowl…
The Defined Dish Cookbook, Alex’s recipes are a favorite for flavorful meals the whole family loves! Excited to add more of her Whole3o and Food Freedom recipes to my rotation!
3 / An Organized Spice Rack is key for Whole30 cooking. Whole30 changed the way I cook and I use a wide variety spices now!
4 / Cooking Whole30: The new, updated cookbook reflects Whole30’s deep cultural appreciation of food as well as its historical pathways and ingredients. The new version contains all the essential Whole30 recipe basics and is reformatted as a paper back to make it more cost accessible (under $20). AND- includes a bonus section with five new contributors from the Whole30 community showcasing their culture and recipes!
5 / Sharp, Good Quality Knives make all the difference in meal prep! I love the magnetic block and minimal design of this set!
6/ The Immersion Blender is my ride or die Whole30 kitchen essential. I use it to whip up no-fail Whole30 Mayo, ranch dressing, and just about any sauce. I love it because it takes up very little space, is affordable (under $40), and easy to clean!
7 / Ninja Blender System: I have this set and love that it doesn’t take up a ton of space, with a single base and three blending options (food processor, blender, and single serve smoothie). Currently on sale, $159!
8/ My Nespresso Milk Frother is another daily essential…sometimes twice a day! I use it for warming and frothing my nutpods (for my collagen coffee), almond milk, and more! My kids also love to use it to make the best hot cocoa. It also does cold froth, similar to Starbucks “cold foam.” Such a treat and worth every penny (on sale now)! I’m also a big fan of the Nespresso Vertuo Next Coffee Machines, currently 30% off! For a travel friendly option check out my favorite hand held frother, under $20.
9 / Primal Kitchen Whole30 Starter Kit is a great way to stock your Whole30 pantry! I use Avocado Oil all the time for roasting veggies, and I always make sure I have their yummy mayos to whip up quick tuna or chicken salads for lunch. Their Whole30 Dressings add instant flavor to leftovers and salads!
10 / Nutpods Unsweetened Dairy Free Creamers are a must for Whole30 newbies and veterans alike! This four pack contains Original, plus French Vanilla, Hazelnut, and Caramel. Not only are they a fabulous addition to coffee and tea, the Original flavor is perfect for adding creaminess to sauces, soups, and salad dressings.

11 / Yeti 10oz Coffee Cup: On sale today, $15! A daily essential for me! I make my Whole3o Collagen Coffee in this and I love that it keeps it hot for quite a while. The larger 14 oz mug with handle and 20 oz tumbler are great too!
