13 Bulletproof-Approved Items and Foods to Buy at Target

target roundup header

You know how it goes: You walk into Target with the goal of buying one, maybe two, items, and an hour later you’ve left with an entire shopping cart of things. The phenomenon is known as the “Target Effect,” and it’s no wonder people can’t get enough of the big-box retailer. It sells just about everything, including products for the aspiring biohacker. Read on for the best Bulletproof-approved items and foods to buy the next time you head to the store.

Blue Hill Bay Smoked Wild Alaskan Sockeye Salmon, $6.99 for 3oz.

Choose wild-caught salmon over farm-raised; it’s better for your health, and for the environment. Wrap a slice around a creamy chunk of avocado as a snack, or add to a salad for a healthy dose of omega-3s. Smoked salmon brands typically contain sugar, but this Blue Hill version is unsweetened, giving it the Bulletproof thumbs up.

Bulletproof Cold Brew, 4-pack

Only available in-store at Target; prices may vary

For busy mornings, grab a Bulletproof Cold Brew. Each bottle contains high-quality coffee, Brain Octane oil, and grass-fed butter. The caffeine mixed with powerful fats gives you focus, banishes cravings, and burns fat, helping you power through your day. Cold Brew comes in a variety of flavors — vanilla, mocha, and original. For an extra creamy taste, try Cold Brew with Collagen Protein.

Organic avocados, $4.99 for a 4ct. bag

Bulletproof is all about avocados. This creamy, high-fat fruit fights inflammation and lowers blood pressure. It’s also approved on keto, paleo, and Whole30 meal plans. Get inspired with these 30 delicious and easy avocado recipes.

Thank you cards

Prices vary

Gratitude rewires your brain. Saying thanks builds lasting neural plasticity to more positive thinking. There are different ways to show gratitude — writing down what you’re grateful for each day is one option. Another is to write a note or a letter to someone who has touched your life. That can be a friend, a family member, a teacher, or an acquaintance — anyone who has helped shape you. Target sells a wide variety of beautifully-designed thank you cards at affordable prices.

Bulletproof Brain Octane GoPacks

Only available in-store at Target; prices may vary

Brain Octane oil is a purified form of saturated acids called medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs). There are different types of MCTs, and some of these convert to ketones more quickly than others. Brain Octane is pure C8, the most ketogenic oil. Throw these convenient single-serve to-go packs in your gym bag for pre-workout fuel, or pack them in your suitcase when you travel.

Organic blueberries

Prices vary

Blueberries fall in the green zone on the Bulletproof Diet. They’re nutrient-dense and full of anti-inflammatory polyphenols. They make a great dessert on their own, or toss them in a salad for a little zing.  

Contigo Stainless Steel Travel Mug, $19.99

What to do when you don’t have time to sip your Bulletproof Coffee at a leisurely pace at home? Pour it into a Contigo travel mug and head out the door. The sealed lid is leak and spill proof and drinks stay hot for up to five hours.

Green Giant Riced Veggies (frozen), starts at $2.69

Dinners are a cinch with these frozen riced veggies from Green Giant. Choose between butternut squash, broccoli, cauliflower, and veggie combos, like the cauliflower and sweet potato. Going low-carb has never been this easy.

Bulletproof Unflavored Collagen Protein

Only available in-store at Target; prices may vary

Collagen protein (also known as collagen peptides and hydrolyzed collagen) can plump your skin and support your joints. It’s no surprise Hollywood stars and influencers are pouring it into their coffee and smoothies. Just two scoops a day can reverse the clock on aging.

Kerrygold Irish Butter

Prices vary

Organic, grass-fed butter is one part of the holy trifecta of Bulletproof Coffee (along with high-quality coffee beans and Brain Octane oil). This healthy fat is jam-packed with omega-3 fatty acids, antioxidants, and vitamins. Add it to your coffee or use it to make this 3-ingredient keto avocado butter.

Unsalted Raw Almonds, $13.49 for 32 oz.

A handful of raw almonds make a great snack to tide you over until dinner. Keep in mind that nuts can be high in mold toxins and spoil easily. Store them in the fridge to extend their shelf life.   

Bodum Schiuma Milk Frother, $9.99

A simple milk frother is a quick and easy-to-clean option to blend your Bulletproof Coffee in the morning. It’s also a lot more affordable than a high-powered blender. To avoid spills or splashes, froth your coffee in a mason jar or ceramic pitcher, then pour into a mug.

Epsom Salt Fresh Bath Soak, $4.99 for 8 lbs.

The majority of people are deficient in magnesium, which can lead to fatigue, anxiety, and aches and pains, to name a few symptoms. One way to up your levels is to take a bath with epsom salts, which are magnesium sulfate crystals. This form of magnesium absorbs through the skin. Pour 1-2 cups of epsom salts in your bath twice a week to feel the benefits.
