Abbot's Butcher

The brand’s vegan beef and chorizo are the first plant-based meats to be certified by the Whole30 Program.

Whole30 is a popular dietary choice for those looking to improve their health, especially at the start of a new year. While the program is generally not vegan-friendly, Abbot’s Butcher just announced that their ground beef and chorizo are now certified as Whole30-approved!

Abbot’s Butcher’s Clean Plant-Based Meats

Both the vegan ground beef and vegan chorizo by Abbot’s Butcher have achieved the Whole30 certification due to their clean ingredients. Both products are free from synthetic additives and contain no added sugars. The vegan beef has a meaty texture and bite filled with umami flavor, while the chorizo is smoky and spicy. Both products are made from pea protein, tomato paste, extra virgin olive oil, and a variety of spices—all of which are Whole30-approved.

The vegan meats from Abbot’s Butcher can be found in grocery stores across the country, including Whole Foods, Natural Grocers, Gelson’s, Pavilions, and a variety of small health food stores. Use this store locator to find the retailer nearest you carrying the brand.

Vegan on Whole30

The Whole30 Program has largely been inaccessible for vegans and vegetarians due to its heavy reliance on animal-based protein and low tolerance for processed foods. Because many plant-based meat replacements are made with preservatives and additives, they’ve never been allowed on the program … until now!

With these two new vegan meats being Whole30-approved, the program has become a lot more accessible for vegans, who can now follow the program with added ease and convenience. Because dairy is already not allowed on the program and most fruits and vegetables are approved, the Whole30 Program is now a viable option for any vegans or vegetarians looking for a way to get serious about what they eat and how it affects their health.
