Primal Kitchen – Whole 30 Kit

I am not participating in Whole 30 but I do often love to try to eat as paleo as possible and believe in trying to eat clean ingredients. This Whole 30 kit is a great starter pack for anyone wanting to take the plunge into healthier eating habits. This kit contains Mayo, Chipotle Lime Mayo, Extra Virgin Avocado Oil, Greek Vinaigrette and Marinade, Ranch Dressing.

Tessemae’s All Natural Dressing, Sauce, and Marinade Value & Variety 8 pack

Another great starter kit paving the way to a healthier lifestyle. I recently picked up a bottle of Tessemae’s Green Goddess dressing and it was incredible. The wonderful thing about this brand is that they are Whole30 Certified, Paleo approved, soy-free, gluten-free, dairy-free, and they taste incredible. Their products are also low in sugar. I am always looking at the sugar content on the labels and these suit me just fine!
