Keto Approved Trader Joe’s Shopping List

Trader Joe's Riced Broccoli and Riced Cauliflower

While you can find a lot of Keto-approved groceries at most neighborhood grocery store chains, Trader Joe’s stands out as one of the best places to stock up on affordable and healthy options. I am not sure how widespread the Trader Joe’s brand is, but it does seem like I get a lot of requests from all around the country asking me to make this list and the subsequent video. For me, Trader Joe’s is about a half hour out of my way to go to, but it is one of the few grocery stores I have found that sells Halloumi Cheese in my area (though I hear that’s only in the summer months).

Feel free to print this list out, or download it to your cell phone, or you can even Pin It to save it to your Pinterest for later. As always I appreciate all of your support to help keep me motivated to produce videos and resources like this for everyone’s mutual benefit.

If you have some suggestions on your personal favorites from Trader Joe’s that did not make my list, please feel free to drop those in the comment section below. I will periodically update this list from time to time as I encounter and try out new items at Trader Joe’s that we can proudly call Keto-Approved. If there are some other grocery stores that you would like me to make a similar list for, you can also let me know in the comments section at the bottom of this article.

As usual, I will try to include an link to Trader Joe’s on Amazon below for any relevant items I can find them selling on there. That way you can read more information from them on their foods as well as possibly place an order for them too. You may find pricing differences between ordering them online versus going to the store and picking them up off the shelves.

If you would also like to print out my Keto Approved Sam’s Club Shopping List, you can do that here.

        1. Donnie, I shop there ALL the time (like 3-4 days a week). I could make a list there too. They don’t allow filming in their stores though, so I wouldn’t be able to make a video to go along with it.

  3. Could you do a list for Sprouts??

    1. I can make a list, but they do not allow filming in their stores so I will not be able to accompany it with a video though 🙁

  4. I’ve shopped at TJs for years and can’t recommend the ground beef.
    Chèvre goat cheese
    White cheddar goat cheese
    Unsweetened flavored sparkling waters
    Cocoa (best ever)

    TJs sea salt
    Frozen grilled asparagus
    Frozen ahi steak
