Walmart is a great place to shop for groceries on the cheap, but what about when you’re on Whole30?
Well, you may be surprised by how much Walmart has to offer for Whole30-ers on
We’re here to lend a hand with our Whole30 Walmart Shopping List!
Note: This shopping list is focused largely on items you might not expect to find at Walmart. We don’t list every fruit and vegetable (for that kind of detail, check out our Whole30 Shopping List). Instead, this shopping list focuses mostly on specific Whole30-compliant products you may want to have in your arsenal.
Reminder: Always Check Ingredients! This list is up-to-date as possible, but ingredient lists do change, so always be sure to take a glance at the ingredient list yourself to be safe. Still, we’ve confirmed these items were compliant at the time of putting this list together, so they are good items to start with.
Also keep in mind that Walmarts can carry different products depending on where you live, so you may not find all the items listed here. Keep an eye out for these finds though!
Here’s the haul I came home with recently:
Whole30 Walmart Shopping List
Walmart Fresh Veggies, Fruit & Meat for Whole30
Naturally, Walmart is a great place to stock up on the obviously compliant foods that you can get at any grocery store like fresh vegetables, fruit, and meat proteins.
Walmart actually has a decent selection of bagged veggies as well as chopped fruit, in addition to standard produce, with items like:
- Bagged Riced Cauliflower
- Baby Carrots
- Bagged Snap Peas
In addition to standard meat proteins, I was also able to spot some grass-fed beef, which is great for those who want higher-quality proteins for their program.
Whole30 Staples Available at Walmart
Walmart has a decent number of Whole30-friendly essential staples and condiments too, such as:
- MaraNatha No Sugar Added Almond Butter
- Spectrum Organic Coconut Oil
- Kelapo Ghee
- Thai Kitchen Coconut Milk
- Olive Oil
- Great Value Balsamic Vinegar
- Great Value Red Wine Vinegar
- Great Value Apple Cider Vinegar
- Chopped Nuts
Walmart Whole30 Frozen Veggies
Walmart offers a nice variety of frozen vegetables that are Whole30-compliant. See our list below of ingredient-compliant frozen veggie mixes.
- Great Value Organic Steamable Multi-color Cauliflower Blend
- Great Value California Style Vegetable Mix
- Great Value Broccoli Stir-Fry
- Green Giant Riced Veggies Cauliflower Risotto Medley
- Green Giant Riced Cauliflower
- Green Giant Cauliflower & Sweet Potato Riced Veggies

Walmart Whole30 Bonus Items
There are a few items I hunted down at Walmart that certainly aren’t essential, but are nice to have on Whole30.
- Sam’s Choice Chicken Apple Smoked Sausage
- Natural Delights Date Rolls
- Nutty or Fruity Pineapple Rings
Walmart Whole30 Pre-Made Meals
It’s definitely handy to have some pre-made meals on hand for Whole30. Not only does Walmart carry Beetnik paleo meals (most of which are compliant) and Grancestor Meals (also generally compliant), but they carry their own line of Great Value frozen meals that are officially endorsed by the Whole30 team.
Whole30-friendly frozen meals at Walmart include:
- Great Value Barbecue Sauce with Chicken & Vegetables Whole30®
- Great Value Roasted Orange Chicken & Vegetables Whole30®
- Great Value Spinach Pesto Chicken & Vegetables Whole30
- Great Value Chicken and Coconut Curry
- Beetnik Paleo Lemongrass Chicken
- Beetnik Paleo Organic Chicken Verde
- Beetnik Organic Shepherd’s Pie with Grass-Fed Beef
- Grandcestor Meals
In fact, you can even see the Whole30 logo in the corner of these Great Value compliant meals.
I’ll be totally honest – Walmart’s frozen Whole30 meals aren’t the best, and the portions are pretty darn small. Still, they’re reasonably priced compared to other Whole30 and paleo pre-made meals, and it’s probably smart to have a few on hand.
If you’re looking for something a little more filling, check out our article on Whole30 Pre-Made Meal Services – we’ve partnered with several brands to get you great discounts on fresh, pre-made, delivered Whole30 meals.
What to Avoid at Walmart
There are plenty of good finds at Walmart, but of course there are danger zones too. Most notably we found a few products that were not Whole30 compliant even when similar items or other products under the same brand were compliant. We’ll note some of those products below to help you avoid any mistakes!
- Birds Eye Mashed Cauliflower (Contains Dairy)
- Green Giant Sweet Potato & Cauliflower Veggie Tots (Contains Flour, Sugar)
- Birds Eye Veggie Made Riced Cauliflower Savory Herb (Contains Cornstarch)
- Great Value Stir Fry Riced Cauliflower (Contains Cornstarch, Soy, Sugar)
- Beetnik Organic Beef Chili and Sweet Potato (Contains Honey)
- Atkins Meals
