Keto and Low Carb Aldi Shopping Guide

Sharing with your friends!

Following a Ketogenic or Low Carb diet doesn’t necessarily mean spending more on your groceries. I’m sharing my favorite foods to pick up for cheap in this Keto and Low Carb Aldi Shopping Guide!

Keto friendly meats at Aldi

My husband and I have been eating Keto for the last year! Can you believe it’s been that long?! Even crazier to believe is that together we have lost 140 lbs! That is an entire adult that we’ve shed between the two of us. Every time I look at my husband now I just can’t believe he’s lost over 100 lbs. It’s crazy to even picture him with an extra 100 lbs on him, and I know just how much healthier we are without that extra weight. We both have so much more energy, less aches and pains, and we sleep better. Ok well he sleeps better, I still some days have a hard time shutting my brain off at night, but once I’m asleep I sleep better.

Anyway, you’re not here to read about me and hubby, you’re here because you want to know what the best foods are to buy at Aldi when you are following a keto diet right? Just because you are eating more meats and vegetables doesn’t mean you have to spend more money at the stores. I actually find that we spend less money on groceries than we did prior to Keto.

The big way we save on our grocery bills is by getting the majority of our foods and produce at Aldi. For those of you that don’t have one around you I feel your pain! I went without shopping at Aldi for 4 years while we lived in Texas and I missed it dearly. But in that time, Aldi has really stepped up their game and are carrying so many more brands and products to fit into just about any diet. They even have a whole Gluten Free section now which is awesome.

There are some things we don’t buy at Aldi, but it’s more because of a brand preference than anything. You can check out my favorite low carb pantry items to see what we buy when it comes to protein powder and baking goods.

Low Carb snacks from Aldi

Low Carb Pantry Items

  • Peanut Butter–watch the ingredients, should be only peanuts and salt!
  • Almond Butter–same as above
  • Nuts
  • Sunflower Seeds
  • Chia Seeds–we add to protein shakes
  • Pork Rinds–seriously the Hot n Spicy are the best ones we’ve tried and I NEVER thought I’d be a pork rind eater
  • Freeze Dried Strawberries–the entire package is 20g NET carbs, so popping a few when you are craving something sweet or adding to a protein shake is great!
  • Condiments like mustard, mayo, pickles, hot sauce, sriracha etc
  • Canned vegetables–fresh is always better with less sugar, but sometimes a girls gotta grab a can!
  • Stevia sweetener packets–The big bag of stevia has artificial sugar added to it, but the individual packets do not, go figure
  • Hint Water–LOVE this stuff!
  • LaCroix

Low Carb (these are generally considered not Keto friendly due to artificial ingredients or higher net carb counts)

  • Low Carb Tortillas—my new Fav. tortillas!
  • Protein Wraps–our Aldi is hit and miss on when they carry these. 7 NET carbs per wrap.
  • French Onion Dip–to dip those pork rinds into!!
  • Sugar Free Coffee Creamer
  • Salted Popcorn–with 13-15 net carbs per serving, it’s a lower carb snack that you can enjoy when you crave something salty. I usually only eat 1/2 of a serving at a time
  • Sugar Free water flavoring
  • Sucralose sweetener
  • Pea crisps –I like these better than the name brand, but still only eat 1 serving at a time because of the carb count
  • Sugar Free Maple Syrup
  • Carb Conscious Elevate Bars–the sugar alcohol in these can cause some serious stomach upset if you are sensitive so beware!
  • Zevia soda–my store only recently started carrying this, and only in the original flavor. I prefer the cherry flavor personally

Hi Debra. Sorry I am not aware of a 4 carb yogurt, as my personal Aldi store does not carry one, and I wouldn't know what the Springfield store would be carrying. If you have a Kroger near you, they do have a Carbmaster yogurt that is 5 net carbs and very good. Also, there is a new Greek yogurt I recently discovered called Two Good that has only 2 net carbs. I get it at Hyvee and Walmart.

My husbands niece told us about aldis having zero carb bread. So went to check ours out, we live in Des Moines Iowa and she lives in Indiana. Went there and surprise. happy, over joyed they had the bread. So we bought all 6 loaves, plus other keto low carb friendly items. Was very pleased. We haven't shopped there for several years. But will be going back now to buy our groceries. I also bought some meal prep boxes.
