When you're new to Keto it's incredibly helpful to have a keto shopping list on hand so you know what to look for in the store. I was so impressed with the variety of Keto supplies at Aldi – here's a list to help you find all the best Aldi Keto goodies!
Keto Shopping List for Aldi (49 Food Finds!)
Jamie here! I first started Keto on January 9th 2019 – and as of today I am *still* (knock on wood!) really happy with my progress. I was able to go down 57 lbs by August 2019 and have maintained the weight loss since then. I feel so much better in general!
I wanted to help all you Aldi shoppers by sharing some of the AWESOME Keto-friendly foods I found at Aldi! Keep in mind I'm “dirty” or “lazy” Keto – so what might be fine for me, maybe not be right for you 🙂 (If you don't have an Aldi – check out these Amazon Keto Finds!)
Aldi Keto Bread
The BIGGEST recent addition to Aldi's Keto friendly offerings has been this insanely popular Zero Carb Bread. It landed temporarily back in November – but we hear it's making a PERMANENT reappearance this Spring! The Aldi Zero Carb bread deserves it's OWN huge entry because of how phenomenally life-changing it can be for someone doing low-carb or “dirty” keto.
Made by Loven Fresh – the zero carb bread costs $3.49 and comes in Multiseed or Wheat Varieties. Each serving contains 5 grams of protein, 9 grams of fiber and zero net carbs. Wooohooo!
Note About Net carbs: Since fiber isn't digested the same way as other carbs, many people subtract the fiber from total carbs to get net carbs. Hence = 0 Carbs.
But how does it taste? It's decently soft – and while the taste is just okay? IT. IS. BREAD. Which feels miraculous after trying to feed yourself sandwichy-things on non-sandwichy vehicles.
Ways to incorporate Aldi zero carb bread into your low-carb lifestyle:
- Grilled Cheese
- Ham & Swiss
- Toast with Cheesy Eggs
- Toasty foundation for a mound of shredded pot roast, Mississippi Chicken or other meat
- Bacon, Lettuce, Tomato
- Avocado Toast
- Peanut Butter & Jelly (Using sugar-free preserves and natural or whipped peanut butter)
- Hot Dog or Hamburger Buns
- Faux-Pizza Crust using low carb marinara
- & TONS More!
FLAVOR & TEXTURE TIP: It has a somewhat bland and bitter flavor – so I like to saute a slice of bread in butter and sprinkle a dash of salt on it to really make it yummy.
*If you can't find it at your Aldi – Amazon carries Sola Golden Wheat bread (yummy!) at 3 carbs per slice!
NEWEST Keto Items at Aldi:
There are lots of things you THINK might be Keto (and aren't) which are a huge bummer. But there are also several hidden Keto-friendly items you may not have considered! Here are lots of Keto Diet-friendly foods you can find at Aldi (Please note that some of the processed foods mentioned below are not recommended more than once in awhile. Take that for what it's worth!)
- Avocado Dip & Spread – 2 Carbs!
This would be perfect to make easy avocado toast with the Zero Carb bread we mentioned above!
- Pizza Parmesan Crisps – 2 Carbs!
These aren't new – Aldi's carried their version of “Whisps” for a while now – but the Pizza Flavor is new!
- Artisanal Sauerkraut – 0 Carbs!
Y'all I don't have anything exciting to say about sauerkraut. Sorry.
- Homestyle Meatloaf – 4 Carbs
If you just crave an old fashioned meatloaf sandwich – this would be pretty yummy with the Zero Carb bread! Anything to add a little variety to the meal plan and stop yourself getting too bored 🙂
- New Cheeses – 0 Carbs
Aldi always has fun new cheeses to try out! Bacon, Cheddar, Jalapeno? YUM!!! I'd probably cube this up in little cubes and have with some smoked almonds and maybe some olives for a snacky-plate kinda dinner. OH! And maybe add in some of the fancy salamis below…..
- Gourmet Deli Selection – 1 Carb
Make your own fancy charcuterie board with some cheeses and meats and whatnot!
- Almond Flour
This isn't new to Aldi but it somehow got left off this Keto Aldi list previously! At around $6.19 for a 1lb bag – this is a good price.
- Aldi Soybean Spaghettis – 7 Carbs (for Green and Red) and 8 Carbs (for Black)
Sooooo obviously 7 carbs is kind of a lot – but if you're desperate for some pasta and you don't want to fool with the weird Konjac Noodles – they're a solid option!
I tried the Red box and they were ok. I only used a little handful (so it probably only was like 4 carbs for my portion) and covered it in alfredo sauce, with chicken and mushrooms added in. I'm a weird texture girl so it was noticeable to me that these noodles weren't as smooth as normal – but otherwise not bad!
- Aldi Alfredo Sauce – 3 Carbs for 1/4 Cup
Speaking of Alfredo – here you go!! You could probably make your own for less carbs – but who has time for that?
- New Giant Jars of Pickles – 1 Carb
If you're a pickle person – maybe you can weigh in on whether or not these are good. I myself am an anti-pickle person – so there will be no taste-testing here!
- Low Carb Tortillas – just 4 Carbs each!
As you can see these aren't teeny tiny either – so 4 carbs is pretty good. These are NOT strict keto – as a true keto diet doesn't include gluten. However if you're doing a diet geared more toward weight loss rather than the anti-inflammatory benefits, these are great to have on hand.
- Keto Ice Cream at Aldi
At only 5 net carbs per PINT – you can choose from 3 yummy flavors!
- Mint Chocolate Chips
- Cookie Dough
- Peanut Butter Fudge
Praise be! I haven't found it in my Aldi yet to give it a try, but PPP Team Member Staci spotted it in hers in Huntsville, AL!
- Folios Cheese Wraps – $4.89
These are very popular – but a bit of a luxury item at $4.89! Still better than Kroger or Meijer's price of $5.40….
- Microwaveable Cauliflower Rice
This sounds….. like I don't want to eat it. Because the only way I can eat Cauliflower rice is if it's sauteed in butter and covered in alllllll the flavors to cover it up. (palate of a toddler here friends) But if you're in a pinch and need something to take the place of rice – this would be nice to have in the pantry!
- Protein Wraps
These aren't of course strictly keto because they contain wheat – but they can help you stay on a very low carb lifestyle. 7 Carbs is not bad for these larger protein wraps.
- Milkadamia Unsweetened Macadamia Nut Milk
I finally tried this – and it was great!! (I used it over my Sola Granola – mmmmmm cereal and milk!) 0 Net Carbs, 5 grams of fat, only 50 calories per cup.
If you like to add lots of cream to your coffee this could be a nice alternative for you as well.. Almond milk is also super low carb – but I like that this has 5 grams of fat vs 2.5 – it will help you get in the fat you're missing if you need it!
- Crepini Egg Thins with Cauliflower
Another one I haven't tried – but at 0 Carbs they are one option for a keto-friendly wrap. My store has them for $2.98 for 8 egg thins. Would love to hear if you've tried these and how you cook with them!
I'll be honest – these look very unappealing to me, and if you're not strict keto and allow yourself to have a little wheat in your diet – I highly recommend these Mission Tortillas! Only 2 Carbs per tortilla and they're soft and make excellent wraps!
- Season's Choice Frozen Avocados
If you use avocados much – you might find these frozen chunks handy and affordable at just $2.99 for a 10oz bag. (However depending on the week – you can grab Hass Avocados for just 39¢ each – so there's something to consider!)
- Mama Cozzi's Cauliflower Crust Pizza
This got great reviews on Yahoo Finance for it's crust's ability to get crispy the whole way through (not just the edges) – and according to Reddit it only has 9 carbs for 1/3 of the pizza. So if you're having a real pizza craving – this might be nice to keep on hand!
- Cauliflower Chips – NOT KETO
These are NOT Keto Friendly – so you're probably wondering why they're here in the new finds list – but I just wanted to give you a heads up that they're out there and they're going to fool some people! At 17 net carbs they're just not worth it 🙂
- Heavy Whipping Cream
I can't even tell you HOW MUCH CHEAPER cream and butter are at Aldi than Walmart, Target, and other stores! I love picking up staples like this at my Aldi 🙂
Aldi has SO MANY KINDS OF CHEESE!! And it's all pretty inexpensive. Cream cheese to Irish Cheddar – you could go crazy on stocking your fridge with tons of cheese varieties!
- Specialty Cheese
I felt like their cheese deserved two mentions you know? Because really Aldi has THREE cheese sections.
There's the regular bags of shredded cheese, then there's the fun kinds next to the lunchmeat section, and THEN there's a third area you can find cheese… the specialty section! Look for a special case that usually houses hummus, guacamole, etc…
You'll find hard cheeses and seasonal cheeses that will make your Keto heart happy 🙂 ♥
Aldi has the best price in town on eggs – and if you're doing Keto, there's a good bet you're going through more eggs than normal. Last week at my store they were 55¢ (WHAT?!) and the week before that 66¢. I'm sure this varies by region – but just know that they're repeatedly very low priced.
- Kerrygold Butter
This is a recommended grass fed butter and it's SUPER EXPENSIVE some places – but just $3.59 at Aldi 🙂
Ghee is an ultra clarified butter – and it's even MORE SUPER EXPENSIVE at some places – but not too bad at Aldi!
Keto-Friendly Produce at Aldi
Avocados are a good source of healthy fats and lots of Keto folks love to incorporate them into their daily meals. I think the week I was shopping, avocados were only 59¢ each! This varies widely by region and season – but it's a good bet you'll find a nice deal there 🙂
While I will never be fooled into thinking cauliflower with cheese is macaroni and cheese – some people are better at pretend than me 😉
- Squash, Zucchini, Peppers, Fresh Green Beans, and everything else you might want
- Onions and Mushrooms
I actually go through a lot of mushrooms to add an extra texture to my omelettes, meat dishes and soups.
- Berries Galore!
Blueberries, Rasberries, Strawberries and more are available seasonally at Aldi. While lots of fruits have too many carbs to eat much of, berries are a bit more Keto friendly
- 100% Grass Fed Ground Beef
When you're trying to go grain-free (part of the Keto diet) – eating corn fed beef kind of defeats the purpose. If you're looking to switch over to grass-fed beef, Aldi has their own Simply Nature brand that is pretty affordable!
- LOTS OF OTHER MEAT!
So maybe you're not all the way grass-fed, Aldi still has you covered with a nice variety of pork, beef, chicken, ground turkey, and more! I have heard people say they don't buy their meat at Aldi – but I have no idea why. I've bought chicken, beef, turkey and roast there a number of times and it's always been great!
Look for Salmon as well as other fresh and frozen fish – varies seasonally.
Are you even Keto if you don't buy your pack of bacon every week?? (Just kidding!) Aldi carries a few different types of bacon – some more fancy, and some that are really inexpensive. Check the back of the package to make sure there are no sugars added in the flavoring process!
- Cheddar Brats
These are one of my favorite lunches, along with some green beans! I slice them diagonally into medallions and fry them up with some frozen green beans. Yum! I believe they only have 2 carbs per link.
- Chicken Sausage
Switch things up a little with this one!
I like to make my own little pizzas on my almond flour coffee mug bread – so I like to have pepperoni in the fridge always 🙂
- Beef Biltong
Both of these flavors have 0 Carbs – woohoo! Biltong is like beef jerky but marinated and air dried for more flavor – it's basically a dried steak and is considered a delicacy!
Some people love salami – I'll admit I've NEVER had it but if you need some – they have it!
- Bacon Wrapped Sea Scallops
The frozen food section had some new offerings this week as well – including lots of Super Bowl friendly party foods! These Bacon Wrapped Sea Scallops would be a fun change of pace at only 2 Carbs per serving of three scallops.
- Jennie O Turkey Burgers
You might think of turkey as being low fat – but in reality these Jennie-O patties are 15 grams of fat each and 0 Carbs – which is pretty good!
- Kirkwood Buffalo Style Chicken Chunks
I can't remember the carbs on these (darnit!) but I did look while in the store and took a picture after I confirmed they were super low carb. You'll have to trust me on this one – and let me know if you happen to know the carb count!
Aldi Keto Snacks
- Chocolate Chip Muffins
I WISH!! Haha – just checking to make sure you were paying attention 😉
- Elevation Snack Bars
So many people told me about these things I had to buy a couple boxes! They're only 2 grams of carbs each for the Cranberry Almond or Peanut Butter Fudge Crisps (that one has a slight Butterfinger flavor) – but I have to admit, I don't totally love them. If you're in a pinch though, they'll work!
Since I like to keep on snacking while I work – it helps if I chop up an Elevation bar so I have more to nibble 🙂
- Pork Rinds
Not a fan! Moving on…. (But I mean they are cheaper here than some places….)
UPDATE: I have since found a pork rind I ACTUALLY LIKE – these 4505 Chicharrones are AWESOME (especially with Queso dip) and these Hot & Spicy Microwaveable Pork Rinds are WAY better than the bagged kind in the store and puff up in the microwave like popcorn (WHAT?)
- Cheese Crisps
One of my favorite snacks to grab (and they go well with guacamole or keto-friendly salsa too!)
Aldi has LOTS of nuts – including roasted and salted varieties, and raw varieties. They're SO much less than my local grocery for a big bag. Pecans are my favorite for Keto – they have lots of fat, medium amount of protein, and the lowest carb count I've found yet!
- Smoked Almonds
My favorite snacking nuts are the Hickory Roasted Almonds at Aldi – they're just so yummy!
- Macadamia Nuts
These are another really low carb nut that is high in fat and buttery! Just 2 carbs per 1/4 cup isn't bad. However in my experience many times I get chewy and brown Macadamia nuts in the Aldi bags – so they're not my favorite at almost $9.
- Pepitas or Pumpkin Seeds
At only 2 carbs these are a great little snack as well 🙂
- Organic Guacamole Singles
These are only 2 carbs per tub!
- Olives and Pickles
I love snacking on briny olives with little sharp cheddar cheese cubes – and Aldi has a few varieties of jumbo stuffed olives as well as plain ones! Plus if you're a pickle person, or need the juice to cure your Keto Flu – they've got you covered!
- Fit & Active Water Flavors
They come in little squeezy bottles for on the go – or mix in powders. Either way, if you're getting tired of water it's a nice change!
- Gatorade Zero
Lots of people also recommend drinking Gatorade or Powerade Zero during their first couple weeks of trying Keto. It replenishes electrolytes to help stave off the Keto flu! I drank a Powerade Zero a couple times in my first week and my second week, and never got the Keto flu!
More Aldi Keto Finds
- Bone Broth
- Fair Trade Coffee
I drink a lot of coffee on Keto since I'm mixing my MCT Oil and Collagen into it each morning. (I have to space out my scoops over a few cups) The Aldi Fair Trade coffee is so good and it's only around $3.50 per bag!
- Riced Cauliflower
Lots of Keto Recipes sub out noodles, rice and more with Riced Cauliflower. Aldi has large bags for under $2!
- Stevia & Stevia Packets
Now that we have to stay away from sugar, get your stevia for your morning coffee! Although for baking and bigger recipes – you'll probably want to order Swerve or Monkfruit sweeteners 🙂
A couple that might trip you up – so don't be fooled!
- NOT Keto Cheddar Puffs!
I got SO excited when I saw these white cheddar puffs – I totally thought they were going to be like Moon Cheese. But ALAS!! They're made with rice flour or some such nonsense 🙁 Don't be fooled!
I know this list isn't exhaustive by any means – but I hope it helps you make your Keto shopping list before you head to Aldi! And guys – I would just LOVE to hear about some of the Keto friendly items you normally grab at the store. Leave me a comment below and I may go try out your suggestions!
