Whole30 Walmart Shopping List

I don’t shop at Whole Foods.  I’ve been there a few times, but my eyes mostly just bulge at the price tags and I feel silly for even going in.  I’m sure they have a lot of good products, but I like to go on vacations with my family every once in a while verses spending every last dime on groceries.  If I’m going to continue to make this a lifestyle change, shopping at stores like Whole Foods is not realistic for me.  I shop at Albertson’s, Smiths, Costco, Sam’s Club, Trader Joe’s occasionally, and Walmart.  You don’t have to go to a fancy health foods store or spend a ton of money to find some good quality, healthy, even Whole30 approved products.

Long list of Whole30 foods you can find at Walmart!

Not everyone has access to stores like Costco or Trader Joe’s, and that’s ok.  I recently read somewhere that 90% of Americans live within 15 miles of a Walmart.  Rest assured that you can find MANY Whole30 approved foods at your local Walmart. Remember labels like “organic”  or “grass-fed” are not part of the Whole30 rules.  See this chart here for guidelines and deciding what is best for your family and your wallet.

The products and information listed in this post are to the best of our knowledge.  We share with our readers what has been successful for us in our own lives.  Visit Whole30.com for full nutritional guide to ensure the products and food you consume are compliant.


Produce of your choice- My Neighborhood Walmart has a decent selection of organic produce.  If your Walmart doesn’t have an organic section don’t worry, organic produce is not a requirement for the Whole30 as I mentioned before.

Apple Sauce-Motts or Wild Oats

Baby Food Pouches-I found a lot of compliant brands. These are great to keep in your purse for emergencies.

Canned Tomatoes & Paste

Canned Green Chilis

Canned Jalapeños

Chicken Broth- Swanson 100% Natural, No MSG

Curry Paste-Thai Kitchen Red and Green

Canned Coconut Milk

Canned Tuna- Make sure the ingredients do NOT include vegetable broth(soy).

Fresh and Frozen Meats & Seafood- Now all Walmarts differ greatly in this department.  For the most part, most Walmarts carry a brand of all natural, cage free chicken (both fresh and frozen), wild caught salmon, tilapia, cod, etc.

Frozen Fruit and Vegetables– Wild Oats Organic variety (keep in mind the corn and peas are not Whole30 approved)

Who knew there were so many Whole30 items at Walmart!? Love this list!

If I left out any great items you’ve found at Walmart let us know in the comments!  I know all Walmarts are a little different but for the most part I think you will find most of these common items.  Happy shopping and good luck on your Whole30!

    Sorry, I didn’t know that organic or grass fed weren’t necessarily whole 30:)

    • Reply Krista January 11, 2016 at 7:21 am

      That’s right. If you take a look at the link I posted or even the Whole30 website they explain that it is preferred but not a must. For those who can’t afford these more pricey products it’s okay and they can still follow the Whole30. 🙂

      • Reply Sonia January 11, 2016 at 7:42 am

        I guess my first comment didn’t go through… Walmart also has plantain chips (in the produce section, not the chip isle). Ingredients are: plantains and palm oil???

  • Reply Jess January 13, 2016 at 6:46 pm

    I thought I had read on the whole 30 site that most commercial almond milk was a no go???? I remember it suggesting to make your own, is the silk compliant? That would be awesome!

    • Reply Krista January 14, 2016 at 9:58 am

      Hi Jess, making your own is always the better option, however unsweetened silk brand is compliant. Ingredients: Almond Milk (almonds, filtered water) sea salt, natural flavor, locust bean gum, sunflower lecithin, gellan gum. Just always check your labels I know there are others out there too.

      • Reply Whole30er January 19, 2017 at 7:05 pm

        I was under the assumption that anything that stated “natural flavors” was not compliant. The almond milk wasn’t compliant, not was the sparkling water.

        • Reply Tracy January 19, 2017 at 7:54 pm

          Hi there! Melissa Hartwig, of Whole30 says this regarding natural flavors…
          “While we think you should hunt for processed foods with little to no additives, the “natural flavorings” in these products aren’t going to affect your Whole30 in a negative fashion.- Melissa”

          That from one of the Whole30 discussion boards. Hope this helps!

  • Reply Jeanne January 18, 2016 at 2:10 pm

    Thanks for sharing! I don’t have the swanky stores near me and that’s ok…my budget can’t afford anyway. I’ve actually had some luck at price right finding many compliant foods. And, as an added bonus, the have grass fed beef and lamb at AWESOME prices. Still it’s limited so I think I’ll make the trek over to Wally World. Thanks for the encouragement.

        Hi there. Thinking of trying Whole30. I see you have Kerrygold butter listed. I thought I read that only ghee and clarified butter are allowed. Does Kerrygold fall into one of those categories? I would love it if it does. ?

        • Reply Tracy May 13, 2017 at 10:51 am

          Hi Laura, unfortunately no. However you can make your own ghee pretty easily using delicious kerrygold butter!

          Hi Laura,
          We just recommend using the Kerrygold butter to make your own ghee. As is, the Kerrygold butter is not Whole30 approved.

        I was just wondering about the tomato paste and other canned tomato products that you mentioned. Don’t all processed tomato products contain sugar?

        • Reply Tracy August 27, 2017 at 7:08 am

          Canned tomato products are on the okay list as long as they don’t have added sugar. Check those labels! Natural flavoring is okay.

  • Reply Jenni March 12, 2016 at 4:13 pm

    I’m really curious about the Swanson natural. It says no msg on the label but has yeast extract which is a form of msg. This is very confusing to me. Do you know about this? Here is a link that has all the forms of msg. http://www.truthinlabeling.org/hiddensources.html I might actually email the company and ask. I break out in hives anytime I get something that has any form of msg. So I was excited to see this was on your list. But I know I still can’t eat it. Store bought broth is a hard one because normally all has some form of msg or yeast extract in it. There are a few brands out there but they are hard to find.

    • Reply Carissa May 15, 2016 at 8:50 am

      Yeast extract IS msg, not just a form of it. Like many “hidden” ingredients they use other names to confuse or hide the ingredients and people think it’s not there. Even the organic varieties have yeast extract.

      Making your own is very easy! I make mine in my crock pot. I put in a whole chicken (usually publix greenwise), sometimes a chopped onion and carrots, then fill it up with water, a splash of Apple cider vinegar, and sometimes a shot or two of Apple juice. Cook on low all day, and you have good chicken for shredding, and great broth! A lot too! This usually fills two gallon size freezer bags plus a little extra.

      If you’re extra fancy, you can do it again with the chicken bones and make bone broth. Just the bones and water, cook on low for at least 24 hours.

      • Reply Susan August 25, 2017 at 5:54 am

        I was just wondering why you put vinegar and apple juice in chicken broth. I’m just preparing to start the Whole 30 and getting my shopping list together.

    Is the Irish butter compliant? It’s dairy and I thought dairy was a no go?

    • Reply Krista March 21, 2016 at 2:32 pm

      It’s not compliant as is but we use it to make our ghee.

      • Reply Laura Williams March 22, 2017 at 7:16 am

        How do you make your own Ghee? It’s pretty pricey (like $15) so if it’s fairly easy I would like to try. Thanks!

        • Reply Jenn March 29, 2017 at 6:07 am

          Ghee is easy. Google how to make it. You just need to heat it so that it separates the milk proteins and then skim those out. You’ll need a cheesecloth though. Cheap and you should find it at Walmart. 🙂

      • Reply Susan August 25, 2017 at 6:18 am

        Why this brand and not any other? Can’t you make ghee out of any butter?

        • Reply Tracy August 27, 2017 at 7:06 am

          Yes, you can! Technically no butter is compliant, only ghee is and you can make that from any brand.

  • Reply Jess April 13, 2016 at 6:37 pm

    Walmart also has phenomenal coconut flakes. I can’t remember the brand but they come in a green bag that says organic on the front. They are located by the baking section. I love adding this to salads or home made Lara bars. (Okay let’s be honest, I totally eat it straight from the bag on a regular basis.)

    • Reply Krista May 31, 2016 at 7:50 pm

      That is mostly up to you. Most people suggest organic, grass-fed meat but it’s not a must for completing the Whole30. Obviously those things are preferred but if it’s not in your budget don’t let that get you down. Decided what is best for you and take it from there.

    The Aidell Chicken and Apple sausage have 2 grams of sugar I thought you couldn’t have added Sugar on the Whole30. I ate some do I need to start my whole 30 over?

    • Reply Tracy July 10, 2016 at 12:22 pm

      Hi Bobby,
      Look at the ingredient list for sugar rather than the grams. Natural sugars (as in fruit and fruit juice concentrates) are okay on whole30. The grams in the nutrition label are coming from the fruit, but there is no sugar in the ingredient list. You’re good!

    My WalMart started carrying Lara Bars. Most are not Whole 30 approved but they do have apple pie which is. Comes in handle for me at work. Tho I buy local honey I did see raw unfiltered honey on the shelves as well the other while shopping for our whole 30 this month

    • Reply Krista September 17, 2016 at 1:39 pm

      Hi Kim thanks for the info about the Larabars! They do come in handy on the go but we love the homemade kind the most! As for the honey, unfortunately it’s not allowed on Whole30. It’s great to use to sweeten recipes but hold onto it until your 30 days are complete.

    I am really surprised that Whole 30 would consider products with “natural flavorings” ok as part of a Whole Foods plan. If you do some research on the words “natural flavorings” you will find that they are chemical additives derived from plants and animals, but still in that gray area whether they are safe. Many times they claim the amount is small, but if you are eating or drinking many products that contain natural flavorings who knows what long term effect they may have on your health. If it isn’t completely natural, how can we trust it?
