This shopping list for Whole30 Must Haves from ALDI is the perfect way to help you do Whole30 on a budget. From marinara to guacamole there are so many options!

It’s here!! You asked for an ALDI Whole30 shopping list and at first I honestly had no idea what ALDI was.  But after the great response from my lists for Trader Joes, Target, SproutsRalphs, Costco, Amazon and Thrive Market, I thought I better find out more about this store.  I looked it up and found that there was actually one about 30 minutes away! I got my camera and took off out the door.  The ALDI I went into was at first glance, packed with non-compliant food like products, but once I dug deeper and looked at pretty much every label, I found a few gems for my Whole30ers!   I know eating clean can be daunting at first once you get the hang of reading labels, going shopping can be easy, and I hope I made your next trip to ALDI a bit easier with this list.  I would love any other recommendations for Whole30 lists and I will get to it right away. For now, enjoy this list of goods and some recipes you can use them in!


Both of these options have clean ingredients and are great to add on top of frittatas or salsa chicken bowls!


They have tons of nuts at ALDI that are clean and I love to make my own nut butter with them!  They are also great to crush up and put on salads or bread chicken with. I love spreading nut butter on sweet potato toast!

Frozen Veggies

I love adding frozen veggie to frittatas and cauliflower rice! They are so handy to keep in the freezer when you are in a pinch.


Finding a clean marinara is huge on Whole30!! I love adding marinara on top of meat and veggies if it seems a little boring.  My favorite recipe to use marinara in is my Cheeseless Chicken Parm! *** NOTE: It seems that some stores have this compliant version, and some stores have the same one with added sugar – probably depending on where you live.  Be sure to check your labels always!


Salsa is another easy pre-made and flavorful sauce that goes great with my Salsa Chicken or on your eggs in the morning!

Clean oils

They have a great organic line at ALDI from Extra Virgin Olive Oil to Coconut Oil.  I love using coconut oil when cooking things in a hot pan and olive oil for dressings on salad!


Of course produce is always whole30 compliant but there were some awesome easy to cook packs of veggies like these sweet potatoes!


If you are a wine drinker, you have to get on the kombucha train.  I love having a glass of kombucha with dinner

Chia Seeds

I love adding chia seeds to just about anything for added fiber and fat!  Sprinkling them on the almond butter on my sweet potato toast might be my fave!

    I also get my chorizo from Aldi! I also get majority of my fresh produce and meats. Their ground turkey is a steal!

  2. Talise Trevigne says:

    Bless you for this list! I have a love affair with Aldi right now, but was worried that I wouldn’t be able to find anything there that works for my Whole30 lifestyle! Thank you for taking the guess work out things!

  3. Alexandra says:

    I love ALDI! I first heard about it in Spain and found out it’s a German store. Also, the owners are the same owners of Trader Joe’s! They have multiple organic items at half the price compare to that at other stores, and they keep adding more.

  4. Monika says:

    Hi! Can I use olive oil on the whole30 or does it need to be extra virgin olive oil? Is there anything I should look out for? Same with coconut oil?
    Thanks for all the help!

    • Kelsey says:

      You can def use olive oil and coconut oil!! The oils to avoid are refined vegetables oils like canola oil! There is a full list on the Whole30 website though!!

  5. Heatger says:

    Your ALDI must have a different marinara than mine – the label on the one in my local ALDI (same brand) has cheese, sugar and soybean oil listed in the ingredients – none of which are Whole30 approved :(. I have however gotten all of the other things listed here and love all of them 🙂

  6. Stephanie says:

    ALDI has been the only place so far I’ve been able to find complaint bacon! (I mean I haven’t SEARCHED but I’ve looked at a few other stores..) I was shocked to find it there!

  7. Colleen says:

    We just had an Aldi open near us over the weekend. They have freeze dried strawberries that don’t have any added sugar. We also found some good, cheap spices!

  8. Mary says:

    Just got done with my Whole30 and did the majority of my shopping at Aldi. My favorite things to get for Whole30 are frozen veggies and beef. I think it’s the best price anywhere for grass fed ground beef! I also saw sockeye frozen salmon for a great price and hope to try it soon. It made my meal planning much simpler because you’re limited on what you can get!

  9. Megan says:

    I’ve been getting pistachios and the roasted almonds at ours. The other nuts (cashews) are roasted in peanut oil.

    • Beverly says:

      Would also love a Sams Club list. I do most of my shopping at Aldi’s, but do the rest of it at Sam’s, and sometimes Kroger, Publix and the dreaded Walmart, depending on what I am looking for and cannot find at Aldi’s or Sam’s.

    I’ve been to Aldi for a quick stop, my daughter shared your blog with me, and I’ll have to say I did see the chia seeds, but I was on the fence on weather to try their brand or not. Then she pointed your blog with the coconut oil, and I’m so glad she did. Because I also was afraid to try their pasta sauce, picky on my gravies lol but I’m actually gonna try their brand. Thank you

  11. Jim says:

    We are at an Aldi right now and ALL types of Marina, including all the specifics above, list organic cane sugar and organic soybean oil in the ingredients.

    • Kelsey says:

      I have heard there are different types that are in different states! The one I had was compliant but I guess not all are!

  12. Bethany says:

    Thank you for all of these lists! Huge help and greatly appreciated! I made your Whole30 Orange Chicken, and my entire family LOVED it. My dad was even in town visiting and he couldnt get enough, and he is the furthest thing from a “clean eater” and Panda Express is his go to. Thanks again!

  13. Rebecca Duncan says:

    Thank you for doing these lists! I don’t have time to do a lot of research and need to save where I can. I hope mine has the compliant marinara! I love Aldi!

  14. Steven says:

    Thank you, thank you, thank you!!! I’m going to make my second attempt at Whole30 as I only lasted 2 weeks during my first one. The last time I attempted it, there was no Aldi so this will definitely be good to check out when I try it in January.

  15. Jennifer says:

    I was at the Aldi near my daughter’s last weekend and they had ghee! I’m hoping they have it at ours as well.

  16. Lorraine Anthony says:

    Aldi’s and Trader Joe’s are both owned by 2 German brothers. There’s many Trader Joe’s items that are relabeled for Aldi’s. I wish I had that list!
