Are you wondering what groceries to buy at Target when you’re doing a Whole30? Shop to stock your fridge, freezer, and pantry right! This Paleo and Whole30 Target Grocery List is the ultimate round up of compliant and approved products, complete with the price of each item included in every photo!
When you’re done reading this post, put those groceries to good use! Be sure to check out all of the Whole30 compliant recipes I have posted here!
Can I get everything on my Whole30 Target Grocery List?
*Good news! Shopping for your Whole30 doesn’t mean you need to shop exclusively at Whole Foods or your local farmer’s markets. You can get pretty much everything you need and want at regular stores.
I really wanted to put this post together to share that with you. Those are great options, of course, if you have access to them and can afford them (I absolutely love my local farmer’s market). But you can also shop at regular grocery stores and pick up a ton of compliant items on your weekly (or maybe daily) Target run!
But just so you know, I don’t have a Super Target, so the items on my Whole30 Target grocery list show what’s available at your run of the mill, regular Target store. Everything that’s here should be at Super Targets, but NOT visa versa. Some Whole30 Approved items I’m DYING to get my hands on (that aren’t at my store, but might be at yours) are Tribali frozen burgers and Naked Bacon. Please, if anybody at Target is listening, bring these to my store!
Whole30 & Non-Food Rewards
When you’re doing the Whole30, it’s important to find rewards for yourself outside of food. So often we think, “It’s been a long week, so I’m going out for cocktails!” But when you do Whole30, you have to find other ways to chill out and reward yourself. Taking a long walk or a enjoying bath are great choices, getting a mani, or buying a small item you’ve been eyeing — good choices, too! Spending $400 on a luxury purse? Not so much. You’re doing the Whole30, not curing cancer. Reign it in, people, and give yourself a little treat! But still, it’s important not to deprive yourself of things you enjoy!
One non-food reward I really like:
I make my Whole30 Target grocery list, tuck my kids in bed, kiss my husband goodbye, and pop over to Target for a late-night, leisurely stroll around the store. Of course by late night, I mean 8pm. I’m always home by 9:30… sometimes earlier. Since there was a big change at local Target recently — We FINALLY got a Starbucks — I get to make the evening even better! I grab my go-to Whole30/anytime Starbucks order: Trenta unsweetened, no water, light ice, Passion Iced Tea. Just FYI, it’s not caffeinated.
Everybody loves Target… right? Wrong.
Truth time: I used to hate grocery shopping at Target.
Are you a Target shopper? Wait, don’t answer that, because I already know the answer.. and it’s yes. Why else would you be here, right? Well, I have to tell you, I honestly could never wrap my mind around why everybody loved Target so much! Why? First of all, it’s always crowded! Second, they don’t even have anything I like.
I really couldn’t tell what all the fuss was about, so I just didn’t shop there much. Then our local pharmacy shut down, and Target became the closest pharmacy to our house. I’d have to go in sometimes to pick up prescriptions and whatever odds and ends we might need.
Spoiler alert: But now I love it.
Over the last few years and many, many Target trips, I slowly started to realize I was actually enjoying my Target runs. I looked forward to running over there to pick up something quickly. And I accidentally figured out a major hack that makes shopping at Target much better for introverts like me — Go early in the morning or very late at night. I started doing that because it was easier to leave my kids with my husband and go alone. If I needed something from Target, I’d go after he got home from work.
Okay, maybe this isn’t really a hack, but it’s totally true!
It’s quiet and the store is actually relaxing! I also found that once the place wasn’t so jam packed with people, I could actually look at what they have. And I liked what I saw! They do have what I like! It was like a cartoon lightbulb was lighting up over my head, it clicked. I was actually enjoying the Target experience. A lot! You might think I’m crazy for ever feeling like I didn’t like Target, but if you don’t, I think you should give it another try!
Okay, now let’s get down to business! Your Whole30 Target Grocery List (with prices in every picture!) is here!
