It may seem counterintuitive to have a post about Whole30 Approved Hot Dog brands… don’t hot dogs have a TON of grossness in them usually? Usually, yes.

But not always!

You’d be surprised how many delicious, Whole30 compliant hot dog brands are out there! This post is strictly for Whole30 Approved hot dog brands… if you want to expand your search, you can also check out my post about Whole30 Approved Sausage brands!

We were vegetarian for five years before we started our first Whole30… and when we started to eat meat again, we made it a priority to eat Organic meat from sources we trust. We want to know the animals lead happy lives, were able to express their natural tendencies of grazing, rooting, etc outdoors, AND we want the farming practices to be good for the environment.

One of my favorite ways to grocery shop is using Amazon Fresh! There are SO many great grocery products from brands I LOVE that you can get delivered straight to your door! (They even have some Whole30 Approved Hot Dog brands!) Use the coupon below for $25 off your first order!

As you can tell from this post, I scoured the internet to try to be as comprehensive as possible with my list of Whole30 Compliant Hot Dog brands…

As I went through each and every hot dog I found, I tried to also compile a list of hot dogs I know for sure to NOT be Whole30 Compliant. The list above of Whole30 Compliant hot dogs IS very exhaustive, so if you don’t see a hot dog above, it’s likely because it’s not Whole30 compliant.

Here are some hot dogs brands I know are NOT Whole30 Approved:
