Tips for Vegetarians and Vegans Doing Whole30

Tips for Vegetarians and Vegans Doing Whole30

We. Love. Veggies. The deliciousness of fresh, California produce is what inspired our Superfood Soups and Veggie Shots, and that’s what we keep coming back to as we develop new flavors.


While most of our products are completely vegan, we’ve been know to experiment with a Paleo-style diet, and love to do January and September Whole30 as a team. So how do we bring these two styles together? Well, when you’re as passionate as we are about using food to live our healthiest, happiest lives… you name it (vegan, vegetarian, pescatarian, Whole30, paleo, locavore), one of us has tried it. And across so many different food philosophies, vegetables are one thing we can ALL agree on!


Since you’re already familiar with how much we love Whole30, and because so many people have seen so much success with it, we wanted to show some love to the members of the #SOUPSQUAD who prefer a plant-based diet.


Technically, the Whole30 and Paleo diets rely on animal protein for a majority of calories and some key nutrients, so those programs have to be modified to avoid those products. However, incorporating some of their principles and reaping the benefits is totally possible without eating meat. You can learn more about how to do a Whole30 while being vegan or vegetarian here.


Both of those programs emphasize the importance of eliminating processed foods, gluten, dairy, and sugar from your diet, and these are guidelines you can easily incorporate into your plant-based lifestyle. Sticking to whole veggies, nuts, seeds, and minimally processed proteins (like sprouted legumes, organic tempeh, and hemp or pea protein) will allow you to gain some of the fantastic benefits — like knocking out sugar cravings, lessening inflammation, and improving digestion.


Since we’re total veggie fanatics, most of our recipes and other content is created with a vegetarian or vegan diet in mind. Some of our favorite Whole30 dishes that fit into this lifestyle are the Seasonal Vegetable Salad with Beet Orange Basil Dressing, and the Tomatillo Kale Jalapeno Guacamole (which can be served with sliced veggies instead of chips during a Whole30). Also, our Three Day Souping Program Guide comes with a variety of vegetarian and vegan recipes to accompany the Superfood Soup you’ll be drinking throughout the day, like an Avocado Lentil Salad and Quinoa Porridge Bowl. YUM!


Whether you’re an omnivore or an herbivore, Superfood Soup is here to support your health journey! Sipping on nutrient-dense whole food will supercharge your eating style and help keep you full and satisfied all day long.
