The high-fat, low-carb ketogenic diet has seen a surge in popularity in recent years. If you are one of its disciples—either as part of a short-term regimen or a long-term lifestyle change—you likely have your weekly shopping list down to a T. However, if that shopping list isn’t meant for Trader Joe’s, you might want to reconsider. Thanks to a new Instagram post from veritable Trader Joe’s wizard @traderjoeslist, we’re learning that the supermarket has tons of great products for keto fans.
Reposted from Max Lugavere, author of Genius Foods, the image contains a pretty robust list of items ranging from hearty proteins to staple condiments. Lugavere originally posted his keto-friendly TJ’s shopping list to his own account, along with a fairly long explanation about how he recommends intermittent ketosis rather than steadfastly following the diet. He also mentions that these healthy foods are ones that non-keto shoppers will love, too, and let’s be honest, we’re always on the lookout for new Trader Joe’s items to add to our carts.

“[These foods] are minimally processed and low in net carbs and sugar,” explains Lugavere in his caption, before adding a quick disclaimer: “Ketogenic diets aren’t magic, and they sure aren’t the only way to lose weight.”
Here are the items that made the cut:
- Kerrygold Butter
- Coconut Oil
- Organic Broccoli Florettes
- Avocado’s Number Guacamole to Go
- Antipasto Assortment
- Smoked Salmon Trio
- Organic Riced Cauliflower
- Greek Kalamata Olives
- Green Goddess Salad Dressing
- Extra Virgin California Estate Olive Oil
- Organic Sweet Italian Chicken Sausage
- Teeny Tiny Avocados
- Organic Beef Bone Broth and Organic Chicken Bone Broth
- Roasted Turkey Breast
- Lightly Smoked Sardines in Olive Oil
- Organic Ground Beef
- Organic Free Range Chicken
- Everything But the Bagel Seasoning
- Roasted Seaweed Snack
- Raw California Walnut Halves & Pieces
Consider adding these to your list the next time you head out to the store. One thing’s for certain: The only thing that can override geographic boundaries and dietary restriction is the country’s undying love for Everything But the Bagel seasoning. We’re all united in our passion for the stuff.
