As long as you use a simple keto grocery shopping list like ours, you can feel good about what you’re putting in your shopping cart.

Whole Foods doesn't bless every region with a smoked meat counter, so check online before going! 

Butcher Counter

You can find some really unique cuts of meat here, and the butchers are known for being very helpful when you're choosing which meat to buy and how to cook it.

Coffee Selection 

You guys know we love our bullet proof coffee, and finding a delicious coffee can take our morning cup to the next level. We definitely recommend checking out the coffee section at Whole Foods. 

Raw Cheese

We like to get raw cheese when we can for its deeper flavor, its higher nutrition content and because it's easier to digest. 

What to Avoid at Whole Foods

Frozen Paleo Bread

You don't need to spend 12 dollars on a tiny loaf of frozen bread. Yes, it may be keto-friendly, but not wallet-friendly at all. We have a bunch of bread recipes you can make at home for much cheaper. 

Bulletproof Bars and Drinks

Just because it says "bulletproof" doesn't mean it's keto and healthy. Read the labels on these bars and coffee drinks to know what's really inside of them. These products aren't made from the best ingredients and are are high in carbs. 

Smart Sweets 

These may be considered low-carb candies, but it's only because they are jam packed with a ton of different fibers and weird ingredients. We would never buy these. 

Bone Broth Protein Powder

It doesn't makes sense for us to pay a huge premium on such a processed product. Just drink bone broth and get your protein from food.
