If you’re not used to cooking a lot, chances are you’ll be on Whole30. This is the only way you can really know what goes into your food. However, with these kitchen tools, cooking is easy and sticking to Whole30 is even easier.

Whole30’s goal is to get you to eat only real “whole” foods (hence the name) – no processed foods or sugar – for 30 days. The diet also removes grains, legumes, dairy products, alcohol, baked goods, and sweet treats. Technically, it’s an elimination diet that will help you discover the foods that make you feel blah and the ones that make you feel best about yourself.

The online grocer Thrive Market has an entire section on Whole30 Compliant foods (and a starter kit) if you’re having trouble figuring out what to and can’t eat while dieting.

There are also tons of cookbooks with Whole30-approved recipes. You can read the basics in The Whole30: The 30 Day Guide to Total Health and Food Freedom, a book by program founder Melissa Hartwig Urban. If you’re on time, check out the books for a quick and easy way to make Whole30 recipes or Whole30 meals.

Even if you understand the rules and need help in the kitchen, these kitchen tools can help you prepare your Whole30 meals. And with the right tools, you can do anything.
