Can You Eat Ground Beef On Whole30?
Yes, you totally can! Any meat that doesn’t have added sugar, sulfites, or other forbidden additives is ok for your Whole30.
Do You Have To Eat Grass Fed Beef On Whole30?
Nowhere in the Whole 30 rules does it say you have to eat only grass fed or pastured or organic beef – or any other type of meat for that matter. Eat what you can afford and what you feel is best for you.
