Eating nutrient-dense whole foods doesn’t have to break the bank. If you’d like to try out a low-carb lifestyle but you’re worried about the expense, look no further than your local Walmart. The company — the largest grocer in the United States — overhauled its image in recent years with its commitment to budget-friendly fresh fruits and vegetables and healthier packaged goods. Going paleo has never been this easy — or affordable. Read on for the best paleo foods — that also happen to be Bulletproof-approved — to buy at Walmart. And download this Walmart paleo shopping checklist to have on-hand next time you head to the store.
Wellbee’s Super Fine Almond Flour $30 for 2lb
Almond flour is a great swap for wheat flour. It’s lower in carbs, and higher in good fats and protein. Plus the majority of people can’t tolerate gluten — it sucks nutrients from your body and contributes to arthritis and inflammation.
One Bulletproof staffer says her mom used Wellbee’s almond flour in a gluten-free carrot cake and it was a huge hit. Or for a savory option, try it in this avocado pizza recipe.
Dynamic Health Organic Coconut Vinegar w/ Mother, $10.92 for 16 oz
Apple cider vinegar might be your go-to condiment to add tang to your salad dressings (or to clear up your skin). But you may want to make space in your pantry for coconut vinegar. This wonder food is anti-aging, supports fat-burning, and strengthens your gut. Dynamic Health’s coconut vinegar is made from the sap, and not from diluted coconut water, which has less nutrients.
Sam’s Choice All-Natural Wild Caught Alaskan King Salmon, $16.98 for 16 oz
Wild-caught salmon is one of nature’s superfoods, full of brain-nourishing omega-3 fats. You always want to choose wild fish over farmed, since farm-raised salmon has fewer nutrients and may contain parasites, heavy metals, and environmental contaminants.
Try it in this baked salmon with thyme-ghee and coconut noodles recipe, or these kid-friendly paleo sweet potato and salmon patties.
Bulletproof Cold Brew, $4.98 for 11.1 fl oz
What do you do when you want a Bulletproof Coffee on-the-go? Grab a Bulletproof Cold Brew. It’s simply coffee mixed with Brain Octane Oil (a high-quality MCT oil) and grass-fed butter. The result? Creamy and sweet, minus any sugar. Cold Brew comes in a variety of flavors — vanilla, mocha, and original. Then there’s the Cold Brew with collagen protein added, and that comes in original, vanilla latte, and dark chocolate. Insider tip: Pour over ice and enjoy.
Siete Family Foods Grain Free Tortillas, $8.96 for a pack of 8
For a healthier taco night that’s easier on your gut, pick up a pack of these grain-free coconut and cassava flour tortillas. Fill them up with keto slow cooker Mexican shredded beef or some scrambled eggs and mashed avocado for a hearty breakfast.
Kerrygold Pure Irish Butter $5.99 for 8 oz
Bulletproof is all about organic, grass-fed butter. This healthy fat is chock-full of omega-3 fatty acids, vitamins, and antioxidants. Stock up on Kerrygold butter at Walmart for one of the best prices. Blend it into your Bulletproof Coffee or try this keto poached butter shrimp.
Sunfood Raw Extra-Virgin Coconut Oil, $9 for 16 fl oz
Coconut oil is full of beneficial fats that boost your gut health and power your brain. It’s especially good for cooking since it has a high smoke point, so it isn‘t easily oxidized (aka damaged). Still, you only want to make coconut oil a small part of your diet — too much of it can cause inflammation.
Applegate Naturals Beef Hot Dog, $4.98 for 10 oz
These beef hot dogs are made from 100% grass-fed, pasture-raised cows. They also contain no added nitrites or nitrates, and only use those naturally occurring in sea salt and celery powder. They do contain dehydrated onion and nutmeg oil, which are in the yellow to orange zone on the Bulletproof Diet for their high mold toxin risk. Bottom line: Indulge in these on occasion.
Great Value Organic Unsweetened Coconut Flakes $1.98 for 7 oz
These organic coconut flakes come in a convenient resealable bag so they stay fresh for longer. Sprinkle over a smoothie bowl or make these low-carb keto coconut macaroons.
Green Giant Spiralized and Riced Veggies $2.48 for 12 oz
Spiralized and riced veggies are a paleo lover’s best friend. Green Giant makes it easy to whip up low-carb versions of your favorite comfort foods. Try the zucchini noodles in this creamy carbonara zoodles with crispy bacon and sage recipe. Or use the riced cauliflower in any one of these 20 super easy low-carb cauliflower rice recipes.
BetterBody Foods Organic Coconut Flour, $6.99 for 2.25 lbs
One of the hardest things when starting the paleo, keto, or other low-carb diet is cutting out comfort staples like bread. Here’s the good news: you don’t have to.
