One of the most common responses I get when I tell people I run a blog about healthy food is ‘Ugh, it’s just SO expensive to eat healthy’. Which is SO NOT TRUE.
If you’re an ALDI shopper you probably already know it’s a great place to get all the steals on healthy food. (And if you’re not an ALDI shopper I promise you will be after you read The Best Whole30 ALDI Shopping List!)
ALDI has some of the absolute best prices on food + produce, and I seriously love shopping there for Whole30 goods! Of course, ALDI does have a majority of food that is not Whole30 approved, but if you can sift through you’ll find some Whole30 gems there!

Whole30 Produce/Snacks at ALDI
I can’t write this post without raving about the price of produce at Aldi. The ALDI closest to me has an awesome selection of organic produce that is both delicious, and great quality. Here are some of the prices of the organic produce that I snagged the last time I was there:
- Organic Tomatoes on vine $2.89 for a 2lb bag
- Organic Avocados – $1 each
- Organic Baby Carrots -$1.69 for a 1 lb
- Organic Sweet Peppers – $2.99/lb
Now let’s get into my favorite Aldi Whole30 Finds!
–Nuts/Seeds -ALDI has great priced nuts/seeds. All of the raw nuts are Whole30, and some of their roasted nuts are compliant as well. Be sure to check the roasted nuts because some may be roasted in canola oil. These pistachios are compliant, and they have a great mix of raw cashews, walnuts and macadamia nuts.
ALDI also has amazing salsa and guacamole for snacking on/adding to your meals. The Pineapple Poblano Guacamole is seriously OUT OF THIS WORLD. Tyler and I ate the whole thing in one sitting (with chips, which aren’t Whole30) but I love putting it on these Pineapple Mango Salsa Chicken Lettuce Wraps or on tacos (made with my Healthy Taco Seasoning.)
In the produce department I also found Spicy Homestyle Guacamole and Mild Cantina Fresh Salsa, both of which we tried + were delicious. For jarred salsa the only thing I found was Chipotle & Lime Salsa…unfortunately most of them had sugar or non-compliant oils in them.
Whole30 Pantry Staples at ALDI
ALDI has a lot of Whole30 approved pantry staples that are great for having on hand for adding to dinners, salads, etc. Here are some of the things I found that I love:
–Diced tomatoes with green chilies (.59) (These would be so good to add to my Paleo Turkey Chili)
–Coconut milk – GOYA ($1.79) – great for cooking ‘creamy’ things or adding to coffee!
–Minced Garlic – comes in a jar, makes life a breeze! Seriously, we use this in everything. I also love their spices, and sometimes they have organic ones.
–Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk – ALDI’s Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk is technically Whole30 compliant. I prefer to make my own Almond Milk using this Whole30 Almond Milk recipe.
–Simply Nature diced tomatoes – Great for adding to soups, stews, chilis.
–Coconut Water – I don’t drink coconut water and it could be ‘SWYPO’ for Whole30 – but you can be the judge!
–Crushed Pineapple – great in salsas, or over chicken/fish. Make sure to get the Crushed Pineapple in 100% juice as many others have added syrup/sugar
–ALDI Specially Selected Premium Marinara is sugar free at my ALDI – I’ve heard that it is not at all ALDI’s because they get their sauce from different suppliers. I couldn’t find any other ALDI sauces that didn’t have canola oil or sugar added to them, but you can try to find them! Maybe your store has other options.
–Kalamata Olives for using in this Whole 30 Greek Chicken Spaghetti Squash Bake
–Apple Cider Vinegar
–Canned green beans – Not something I would recommend, just because fresh is always better, but these are good in a pinch!
–Flours/Oils – Organic coconut oil was only $4.50. They also had olive oil and balsamic vinegar that was compliant. I’ve never tried any of them so I can’t give a review. I’ve seen other people post about ALDI having almond/coconut flour but I couldn’t find that at mine.
