Frequently Asked Questions

What Can’t You Put Into A Whole30 Soup?

There are a few ingredients that you need to avoid to ensure that your soup remains Whole30-compliant. 

The main ingredients that should not be used in a Whole30 soup include dairy, this means no milk, butter, or cheese that isn’t vegan-friendly. 

You should also avoid grains in your soup, so no rice or bulgar wheat.  Legumes are another item that shouldn’t be used in your soups. 

Legumes include any kind of bean. This is particularly important to remember if you are making taco or stuffed pepper soups as it can feel natural to add them. 

Finally, it is important to make sure that you don’t add any extra sugar to your soups. This can be a difficult one, especially if you are making tomato and basil soup. 

When making a regular tomato soup, sugar is often added to balance the acidity of the tomatoes.  

Final Thoughts

There are so many different types of soups that you can make when you are following the Whole30 diet.

They can help you to avoid falling off your diet and giving in to cravings and temptation from your workplace or your school.
