Top 16 Keto Walmart Grocery List Items
Below you will find my Top 16 Keto Walmart Grocery List Items. Walmart is available in almost every area of the US, and that means it is often the go-to grocery store for anyone on a keto diet. I hope this list helps make your keto journey easier to manage!
Top 16 Keto Walmart Grocery List Items
Since I posted my Very Basic Keto Grocery List and Amazon Keto List, I thought that perhaps a list of Keto staples at Walmart might be helpful. I also run into ALDI sometimes (here is an ALDI keto grocery list), but with four kids I try to stick to one store per week. I took pics of many of the Keto food items at Walmart that find their way into my grocery cart each week. I know that inventory can vary from store to store, but this should give you an idea of what to look for when you are shopping. I narrowed my list down to the top 16, although clearly there are more items in my cart in the pic above. We mainly shop the perimeter of the store then add fresh produce and meats. My shopping trips are certainly much quicker now since we skip half of the store. There are tons of other keto items you can buy at Walmart, but these are the ones I use the most often.
1. Heavy Whipping Cream
Hello, heavy whipping cream, who knew I would use you every single day of my life. Heavy Whipping Cream was a new item I had never bought before Keto. Now, I use it each morning in place of creamer in my coffee as well as in many Keto desserts and meals.
2. Cream Cheese
We go through quite a bit of cream cheese. I use it in many different desserts and sauces like Peanut Butter Fluff and Creamy Parmesan Pork Chops. I prefer to purchase the Philadelphia brand as it contains fewer ingredients and it has less carbs.
If it fits in your budget, grass-fed Kerrygold butter is best.
3. Nitrate Free Smoked Sausage
4. Nitrate Free Bacon
Is it possible to buy too much bacon? I don’t think so. This brand and variety is our go-to bacon because it is nitrate-free. We may not be able to buy all of our meats grass-fed or everything organic, but we can take small steps where we can.
6. Organic Unsweetened Coconut
I would never have thought that I would love unsweetened coconut so much. This brand is my favorite since it is organic, priced right, and finely shaved. I add it to whipped cream with Lily’s Chocolate Chips and roasted pecans for a quick treat. Keto German Chocolate Bars are also delish with unsweetened coconut.
7. Keto Friendly Nuts
Walmart has a huge variety of nuts. Pecans and walnuts are my personal favorites.
8. Almond & Coconut Flour
Keto approved flours are very different than their white gluten filled fluffy counterparts. It does take some getting used to the texture when you first make the transition. I personally cook with coconut flour because my daughter is allergic to almonds, but many people bake with almond or a combination of the two.
9. Xanthan Gum
Xanthan Gum is a keto approved thickening agent for soups and sauces. It is also used in baking. I think this is a specialty item that isn’t available in all Walmart stores. If you can’t find it locally, Amazon offers a variety of options.
10. Keto Approved Sweeteners
I just started using Pyure liquid sweetener in my coffee. Amazon offers a vanilla flavored Pyure that might be yummy in coffee as well if you are missing flavors. They also carry a bag of Pyure sweetener that is a bakeable stevia blend (see arrow). You will want to avoid this particular product as it contains maltodextrin, which most avoid on a keto diet. All of the others are fine.
11. 100% Unsweetened Chocolate Bar
I don’t eat this by itself as it is too bitter, but when I shave it and add it to my Peanut Butter Fluff, it is delicious.
12. Sugar-Free Syrup
I checked all of the sugar-free syrups, and the Walmart brand was the only one that didn’t include aspartame. Instead, this one has sucralose, which many people avoid on a keto diet. However, it doesn’t stall me. If you are looking for a completely clean syrup, Lankanto makes a maple syrup sweetened with monk fruit that you can find on Amazon here. This is just one of the lower priced items I think is a great deal to have on your Walmart grocery list.
10. Organic Coconut Oil
Coconut Oil is a keto approved oil that is used in many different recipes.
11. Reduced-Sugar Ketchup
I’m so glad I don’t have to give up ketchup entirely. This is another one of those items that are up to each individual as it contains sucralose. But, I don’t eat it very often so it is okay with me.
12. Sugar-Free BBQ Sauce
13. Natural Peanut Butter
Some eat peanut butter on a ketogenic diet while others don’t. I belong to the camp that does. You always want to make sure that the only ingredients are peanuts and salt. Smucker’s Natural chunky is our personal favorite.
14. Frozen Riced Cauliflower
If I am making riced cauliflower, I promise it will never happen by hand. This busy momma does not have time for all the steps it would require to start with a head of fresh cauliflower. Thankfully, I don’t have to since riced cauliflower is available in the freezer section of the grocery store. It is easy to find and affordable so definitely a must on the Walmart grocery list.
15. Lower Carb Marinara Sauce
After looking at the nutritional information of many different marinara sauces at Walmart, I have found that these two have the least amount of carbs. The biggest difference is that one cost significantly less than the other.
16. Cheese Please!
Walmart is like the mothership when it comes to cheese. I love buying the cracker slices and deli slices to make Homemade Cheese Crackers. There are tons of different varieties.
Other Items Worth Mentioning:
Veggie Zucchini Spirals
I could get behind this product for busy nights.
I’ve never personally used avocado oil, but it is on the list of keto approved oils.
Organic Grass-fed Ghee is another item I haven’t tried but have seen mentioned in many Keto groups.
I know bone broth has many health benefits but I haven’t tried it yet. I didn’t realize Walmart carried it.
Of course, these are not all of the keto items that Walmart stocks. I just wanted to make a quick list of some of my staple grocery items that I keep stocked. What would you add to this keto Walmart grocery list?
Just beginning this diet or lifestyle so everything is new but I have lost weight & I love veggies anyway so that part was easy. I’m concerned about the protein; too much or not enough? I do read labels but really not sure about many of them.
Look for grillos pickles! they are low sodium sugar-free gluten-free raw vegan and kosher. You can drink the brine or marinade things in it they’re in a bunch of different supermarkets but always refrigerated. And I use ghee all the time I haven’t used butter in about 2 years~?
You’re a life saver!! Ahhh am so happy. You literally just made life so easy for me. This was very helpful, I wish you could make a more comprehensive list of all the items needed for keto and the best best brands. Am moving to the United States and that will be helpful to me. Thanks!!!!
I live in Canada and sadly the Walmart here does not have ANY of these items! And your prices are amazing!! I have to go to specialty stores for many of these items and 4 or 5 times your price. Kerrygold butter is nowhere at any price. Almost makes me want to take a run down to the US to stock up.
Love, love, love your blog. Your recipes are fantastic, so easy and quick. Just what I’m looking for. Have been “Dirty” Keto for 2 years now. Love all the delicious food. Folks just don’t know what they’re missing, not to mention being able to lose and keep weight off. Anyway, I am a faithul follower now. Thank you so much for your blog!
What an amazing post! Thank you for this very detailed post and all the recipe links! I can’t wait to go back to Walmart with this list. (Did I just say I can’t wait to go to Walmart?! Lol) I’m new to keto and this was so helpful. Thank you and have a blessed day ??
Loved this comment! I am also pumped to get back to Walmart after reading this helpful post. It really is amusing to me considering how much I typically detest grocery shopping, ESPECIALLY at Walmart. Lol
Great article, Kasey! Thanks so much for your effort in putting this list together. I don’t have but a few vanity pounds to lose (don’t quite slide into my favorite jeans like I used to???+?), but shedding them hasn’t been as easy for me now that I’m in my mid thirties. I’ve been considering trying keto for a while now, but I always found getting started to be somewhat overwhelming (even despite its simplicity??). I shop mostly at Walmart, so your list offers me a clear starting point. It’s really funny how keto forces you out of your comfort zone by introducing you to foods/ingredients you’d ordinarily never ever think to buy outside of following some obscure recipe.?? This is the first page I’ve read on your site, but I’ve added you to my favorites list. When starting something new, it’s great to find a great source that keeps things relatable!, so thanks again!
There is a note in the post about sucralose so that those who avoid it know. I’ve been following a keto lifestyle for over 2 years, am below my goal weight, and have no problems with sucralose occasionally. A friend of mine has lost over 160 lbs and has sucralose in an energy drink daily. For those who are not okay with it, which is a personal choice, it’s an easy skip. My advice has always been each person is on their own journey and should choose what is best for them.
I would suggest more research. If I find myself in a place of frustration I go back to the basics and research again. Find out as much as you can about the keto lifestyle, what might be causing you to stall, and perhaps what you could tweak. Here are 10 reasons that can cause a stall that helped me. https://kaseytrenum.com/keto-diet-weight-loss-stall/
Microwave cooking and nutrition
Are microwaves bad for your health? Almost every American house has a microwave. The convenience they offer is undeniable. However, despite the widespread use of microwave ovens and excellent safety recordings, some people suspect that cooking microwaved food makes it somewhat less healthy by removing foods from eating. Do you cook with microwave? Are microwave foods healthy?
How does microwave cooking work?
Understanding how microwave ovens work can help clarify the answers to these general questions. Microwave ovens cook food similar to radio waves but using shorter energy waves. These waves are highly selective, mainly affecting water and other electrically asymmetrical molecules - one end is positively charged and the other is negatively charged. Microwave ovens cause these molecules to vibrate and rapidly generate thermal (heat) energy.
Are microwaves safe to cook?
Some foods, when they are exposed to heat, from a microwave oven or a normal oven, are broken down. Vitamin C is perhaps the most clear example. However, since microwave cooking times are shorter, cooking with microwave does a better job of preserving vitamin C and other nutrients that are decomposed when heated.
When going to the vegetables, cooking in water takes some of the nutritional values ??because the nutrients flow into the cooking water. For example, boiled broccoli loses glycosinolate, a sulfur-containing compound that can give vegetables the ability to fight against cancer (and many find it distinctive and some find it disgusting). Steaming vegetables - even steaming microwave - is it better? In some ways, yes. For example, steamed broccoli holds more glucosinolate than boiled or fried broccoli.
Are microwaves bad for your health?
The method of cooking, which keeps the nutrients in the best way, is a method that quickly heats, warms food and uses as little liquid as possible. The microwave meets these criteria. Using the microwave with a small amount of water evaporates food from the inside out. It contains more vitamins and minerals than almost all other cooking methods and shows that microwave foods can be really healthy.
But let's not get lost in details. Vegetables are good for you in any way you prepare, and most of us don't eat enough. Is the microwave oven good or bad? Microwave is an engineering wonder, a miracle of convenience - and sometimes advantageous in feeding.
