If participating in a Whole30 program has you thinking you are stuck drinking water for the next 30 days, think again. There are so many delicious and refreshing Whole30 Drinks to add variety to your day, as well as, keep you hydrated.
Both hot and cold beverages are available to quench your thirst and satisfy your palate. We’ve compiled a comprehensive resource of Whole30 Approved and Compliant Drinks below with all the information you need to comply with your Whole30 program and beyond.

There are certain types of teas that are allowed on Whole30- the biggest factor is they have to be completely unsweetened- no natural or artificial sweeteners allowed.

Whole30 Sparkling Water + Flavored Water
Sparkling water has exploded over the last few years! There are so many flavors and brands and most of them are Whole30 compliant. If you are a fan of carbonation (like me), sparkling water is a delicious thirst quencher. Also, for those of you looking to kick your soda habit, sparkling water can help to satisfy your love of fizzy drinks without out all the added sugar, caffeine, and additives.
Want to perk up your glass of water? Add sliced lemons, limes, cucumbers, strawberries, etc. Throw in a spring of mint or other herbs to enhance the flavors of added citrus and berries.
Clearly, there is a theme running through the options of compliant drinks while participating in a Whole30 program – NO added sugars! I know I sound like a broken record, but it is important to always read the labels if you are unsure. Many companies find sneaky ways to add sugars and / or sweeteners to their products in order to make their drinks taste better. Personally, having drastically reduced if not eliminated sugar from my diet, I notice the added sugar flavor immediately and find the taste oftentimes be way too sweet for my palate.
While there is no perfect substitute for water, drinking the same thing day in and day out can get tedious and perhaps lead to making poor food choices to compensate. Thankfully there are so many options these days!
