I love Aldi, I have ever since the first time that I stepped foot into the store and did my first shopping trip there. While there last week I took the time to come up with The Best Keto Shopping List for Aldi to help you all with your Keto shopping.
The Best Aldi Keto Shopping List
Shopping at Aldi is my go to place in general and it is a great place to shop when you are wanting to stick to a budget, as long as you stay out of the Aldi Finds section, then things just jump in to your cart and you find them as you are bagging up the groceries. Like a towel set? Yea that happens, if you don’t want it to just stay out of that Aldi finds section. 😉
If you have not yet checked out Aldi, then you really should. It is a great place to get your Keto items while sticking to a budget. I find a lot of my Keto items at Aldi for cheaper then other places that I shop.
Aldi Keto Shopping List
This Keto Shopping List for Aldi is going to make your shopping a whole lot easier, no guessing when you are walking thru Aldi trying to figure out what to buy!
Plus shopping at Aldi also helps my budget. Things can get expensive, and I have always been a deal hunter for my groceries, but that doesn’t mean I want to buy junk products. That is one thing that I love about Aldi, they have great prices and the quality is awesome.
These items up first are my top picks for Keto shopping at Aldi. These are my favorite Keto items that I buy when I am doing my weekly Aldi grocery list.
- Cheese – All types but I stick to the non shredded cheeses to avoid any extra ingredients that are used to keep the cheese from sticking.
- Heavy Cream
- Refrigerated pickles
- Berries – Strawberries, blueberries and blackberries
- Coconut Oil
- Zero Carb Bread
- Lunch meat – Turkey breast and Salami are my go to – I love he salami with a little bit of cream cheese on it rolled up!
Keto Pantry Items to buy at Aldi
There is not shortage on pantry items at Aldi, I am going to tell you that some of the things I call keto pantry items are not things in a traditional pantry.
Low Carb Pasta Sauce. Rao’s Pasta sauce is the best pasta sauce I have found that is Keto friendly, however it is expensive. It ranges between $8 and $15 a bottle for pasta sauce and that is so not in my budget. However Aldi has a pasta sauce that is just 5g net carb (Rao’s is 4g carbs) and $4-$6 a jar depending on what Aldi store you are shopping at.
Pasta Substitutes. Not everyone on Keto is ok with but if you are looking for a pasta substitute and are more on the low carb side vs keto then you might want to check out the soybean pastas Aldi has.
Fit & Active Water Flavors. They come in little squeezy bottles for on the go or mix in powders.
Bone broth. You will find bone broth in the refrigerated section of the store and the pantry section, but I think the one in the refrigerated section is much better.
Zero Carb bread. This one is not always in every store and sometimes I have a hard time finding it at mine, so when I do I stock up a few loafs and put them in the freezer. Then leave on the counter to thaw and it does pretty well and holds up. The bread comes in comes in Multiseed or Wheat Varieties.
Cheese Crisps. There are multiple flavors that I have seen, cheddar, parmesan and sometimes I have found the Pizza flavored ones.
Keto Ice Cream. I saw this for the first time this summer, I tried it and was not immediately sold on it. But after a few times having the Aldi Keto Ice cream I got used to it and enjoy it when I want ice cream. But it is not the same as my sugar loaded favorite, but with only 5g net carbs per PINT I will make it work. 😉 They have Mint Chocolate Chips, Cookie Dough and Peanut Butter Fudge.
Low Carb Tortillas. If you are strict keto you do not want to include these on your list, but if you are dirty keto or low carb they could fit in perfectly. Plus they are really a great option for when you really just want to have something that resembles a real tortilla instead of the cheese ones.
Keto Dairy Items at Aldi
The dairy items at Aldi that are keto and low carb are the cheapest I have found of just about anywhere. Seriously the prices can not be beat, so if you are looking to stay on a budget Aldi is the place to be at.
Butter. I have found Aldi to have the best prices on butter near me. Even better most of the time they have Kerrygold and when they do it is only $2.85! That is MUCH lower then the price of Kerrygold in all of my other stores. You will also want to check out how to make ghee, because making it yourself is soo much cheaper then buying it!
Heavy Cream. Not only is Aldi heavy cream the best price I have been able to find at $1.69, it is also 0g of carbs! It is perfect for making chicken and broccoli Alfredo.
Cheese. There are TONS of cheese options at Aldi. From string cheese to shredded cheese. I like the sliced block cheese that makes it super easy to make cheese crackers with.
Folios Cheese Wraps. While they are on the pricier side, they are best price I have found anywhere. They are great for making a wrap with, and work just as well as a wrap does.
Aldi Shopping List for Keto Fruits
Depending on the season the variety and price of blueberries, strawberries and blackberries differs when shopping at Aldi. However they always beat out the price of any of my other local stores so they are always on my Keto shopping list for Aldi. For example this past week strawberries were just $1.69!
I stock up when they are low and then freeze them too. It keeps the budget in check to have them on hand. If you have never frozen berries it is super simple! Check out how to freeze strawberries and how to freeze blueberries full the full easy instructions. I will also say that you are going to want to lift the top boxes and pick from the lower packs when you are getting fruits from Aldi. Sometimes the packages on the top are a bit bruised and bumped.
Aldi Shopping List for Keto Veggies
Now when you get to the veggie section of the store at Aldi it can be shocking at how great the prices are. It can also make you a little lost when making sure the items you are buying are Keto friendly. To make you life easier here is a list of Keto Friendly Fruits and Veggies to buy at Aldi.
The following low carb veggies are always are on my Keto Shopping List for Aldi when I head to the store.
- Bags of Salad
- Brussel Sprouts
Keto Snacks at Aldi
Elevation bars, they have many flavors, so far I have tried the peanut butter and chocolate and the coconut and chocolate. They were both AMAZING! They are great for when you need a sweet treat, and since I am lazy Keto they fit in perfectly with my need for on the go snacks. Plus the coconut one seriously tastes just like the chocolate coconut candy in the Valentine’s Day candy boxes!
Pickles. You can go for the jarred ones but I am going to tell you the ones in the fridge section are AMAZING! So amazing that i buy 3 at a time because my kids will devour them on me if I don’t.
Panino Tray. No work needed for this one, you can enjoy it all right out of the package while keeping your snacking low carb!
Beef Biltong. There are a few different flavors, and they are aa great source of protein while being 0 carb!
Beef Jerky. There are lots of choices here, but be sure to check and make sure that there is no added sugar. Some of the brands and flavors have higher carbs because of added sugar.
Pepperoni – A staple for making Keto Pizza but you can also enjoy them as is!
Simm’s turkey snack sticks and Simm’s hard salami slices.
Cheese slices and String Cheese. Yes this is dairy item but it makes for the perfect keto snack!
Nuts and Seeds. There are so many options, Almonds, Pecans, Walnuts, macadamia nuts, Sunflower Seeds and cashews. Plus the prices are great on these items!
Pork Rinds. I am going to be honest here I have yet to find ones that I love but if you are a pork rind fan you can get them at Aldi!
Keto Shopping List for Aldi Oils and Fats
- Olive Oil
- Avocado Oil
- Coconut Oil – I always find the best price at Aldi compared to other stores.
- Coconut Milk
Keto Meat and Poultry Items at Aldi
There are lots of choices at Aldi when it comes to meats, poultry and seafood. Some are in the fridge section and others are frozen.
Eggs. Most of the time I find the best deal on eggs at my local Aldi. The only downside I have found so far is that they limit it to 6 dozen eggs per person. There are 6 of us and a dozen eggs is basically gone after one breakfast.
Jennie-O Turkey Burgers.
Kirkwood Buffalo Style Chicken Chunks.
Hot dogs. Look for the ones that are pure beef and not loaded with sugar.
Low Carb Seafood at Aldi
They don’t have fresh seafood like a seafood counter at Aldi but they do have an awesome selection of frozen seafood and sometimes you will find fresh sea food in the fridge section near the meat.
- Bacon Wrapped Sea Scallops
- Tuna Steaks – these are AMAZING, they are sushi grade and perfect for ahi tuna or blackened tuna.
- Tuna. Canned tuna makes for a lot of simple keto recipes but it can get expensive. I have found the canned Tuna at Aldi to be awesome and it is great for making.
