Ultimate Whole30 Starter Kit

Whole30 essentials

These items are all time healthy kitchen favorites whether or not I’m doing a Whole30!

These are products our family loves and have incorporated into our daily or regular rotation. I’ve recommended them countless times over the years as a Whole30 coach! I’ve also included some discount codes to stock up during your reset or reintroduction! Click on the collage above or descriptions below to shop…

If you’re doing a Whole30 this month I’ve got you covered!  

I’ve gathered my favorite resources to support you on your Whole3o journey. (Don’t miss my free Whole30 recipe and grocery guide linked at the end of this post.) And, shop more of my recommendations at the end of this post, in my Whole30 Shop, Amazon page, and comment and let me know what your Whole30 favorites are, too…

My advice: If you’re a first timer don’t feel like you need to buy all the things! And take the time to do a little planning/research before you start. 

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. I also recommend following @whole30 and @whole30recipes on instagram or facebook for motivation and inspiration! 


My Whole30 Favorite Finds:

1 / The Immersion Blender

My ride or die Whole30 kitchen essential. I use it to whip up Whole30 Mayo, ranch dressing, and just about any sauce. I love it because it takes up very little space, is affordable (under $50), and easy to clean! Also love this $35 immersion blender with different attachments. 

2 / Vital Proteins Unflavored Collagen Peptides

I use two scoops of 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. 

3 / Joy Creative Shop Grocery Shopping Note Pads 

Perfect for organizing your meal plans! Several options/colorways. Use andrea10 for 10% off your order and check out their other customized cards, tags, and more! 

4 / nutpods Cinnamon Swirl

It’s tough to pick just one favorite flavor but this one might be it…reminds me of the flavor of Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereal! Oh, and definitely try Caramel and  Toasted Marshmallow too!

This unsweetened dairy free creamer is a must for Whole30 newbies and veterans alike! Not only is it a fabulous addition to coffee and tea, the Original flavor is perfect for adding creaminess to sauces, soups, and salad dressings. Also try the classic four flavor pack French Vanilla, Caramel, Original, and Hazelnut. Order on Amazon or use my code loubiesandlulu for 15% off your first order and free shipping at nutpods.com

5 / Nespresso Milk Frother 

Another daily essential…sometimes twice a day! I use it for heating and frothing nutpods (for my collagen coffee or matcha), almond milk, and more! My kids also love to use it to make hot cocoa. It will also make cold froth, similar to Starbucks “cold foam.” Such a treat and worth every penny! I’m also a big fan of the Nespresso Vertuo Next Coffee Machines, some colors currently 20% off! For a budget/travel friendly option check out my favorite hand held frother, under $10. 

6/ Ninja Blender System 

I have this blender and love that it doesn’t take up a ton of space. It has a single base and three blending options (food processor, blender, and single serve smoothie cup). Currently on sale, 20% off! FYI it can handle ice really well too for the smoothest smoothies and “frozen” drinks! 

7 / Yeti Coffee Mug

A daily essential for me! I make my Collagen Coffee in this and I love that it keeps it hot. The 10 oz rambler and 20 oz tumbler are great too! 

8/ Primal Kitchen Ketchup

(original and spicy) Hands down the best unsweetened ketchup! I’m partial to the Spicy version for that perfect kick of flavor but the original is great too. Delicious with oven baked potato wedges. Kid and spouse approved! 

Another PK favorite is the  Whole30 Starter Kit, 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!

9 / Whole Food For Your Family

The newest Whole30 endorsed cookbook! Over 100 budget- and family-friendly recipes from Whole30 Coach and creator of the popular cooking website Whole Food for 7, Autumn Michaelis. This inspired collection is dairy-free and gluten-free, perfect for your Whole30 and Food Freedom lifestyle! I’ve make a few of the recipes so far and would highly recommend! 

Four more awesome Whole30 Cookbooks:

  • 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…

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!

Includes a bonus section with five new contributors from the Whole30 community showcasing their culture and recipes! ⁣

10 / Sharp, Good Quality Knives 

Make all the difference in meal prep! I love the magnetic block and minimal design of this set!

11 / Our favorite Jerky Sticks from The New Primal!

I keep these on hand at home, in the car, and in my purse at all times for a protein packed healthy snack! Choose from beef, chicken or turkey varieties. Also try The New Primal Seasoning Blends to easily add flavor to your Whole30 meals! So many options/flavor profiles to choose from! One of my favorite things to do is to generously sprinkle Classic BBQ on chicken thighs cooking in ghee for super easy BBQ Chicken. Use ANDREA15 to save on your entire order…
