Whole30 Sam’s Club Shopping Guide

January 27, 2018 | Author: Ashley McCrary

Is it weird that I get super excited when Friday rolls around because that means it is time for my weekly shopping trip to Sam’s Club? I am like a little old lady when I go in that store. I take my time and savor the joy that every isle offers. I imagine myself walking in the store in slow motion with a theme song like something out of a movie. In reality, I look like a duck trying to race for a bread crumb because I am so dang excited about my shopping adventure.  It is not just a shopping trip for me, it’s a legit experience each time I go. People think I am weird, especially my husband, but I have a love affair with Sam’s Club.

Sam’s Club is this magical place where you have your own card with your face on it and you can buy bulk groceries at discount prices. It’s like walking in a club, you can’t just walk by the greeter, you have to flash your big time member card. I usually give a “pimp nod” or a “fist bump” to the greeter, just to show my respect. Y’all, it is a very high society club to be in, or at least it is for me (haha). I love doing my Whole30 shopping here. I will buy bulk meat at the beginning of the month and freeze to have easy resources on hand. I also love buying produce, spices, and seafood here. They have so many great things to offer.

I have assembled a Sam’s Club Whole30 Shopping Guide that you can print and take with you on your shopping trip. My FREE guide includes all the items I buy and love. There are probably a lot more complaint foods you can find, but these are just the ones I use consistently. Make sure to always read your labels and follow the “Additive Cheat Sheet” that is attached in my guide. This information comes directly from the Whole30 program rules.

I have made a 14-page guide that you can print off and take with you to help make your grocery shopping trip less stressful. CLICK HERE to get your FREE copy!

    Thank you for taking the time to do this…especially showing the pictures! I did Whole 30 in May, 2017 and wish I would have had this. It’s also good to see you can get some items prepackaged instead of always making everything from scratch.

👇🏼My 2 favorite healthy swaps for oil when baking, applesauce and Greek yogurt. Both options will save you a ton of calories and fat and give you the same results as oil. 

These swaps are for baked goods such as cakes, cupcakes, sweet breads, and muffins. 

🍎APPLESAUCE SWAP: When substituting applesauce for oil in baked goods, the ratio is 1:1. 

Example: If the recipe calls for 1/4 cup of oil, use 1/4 cup of applesauce or 1/2 cup oil use 1/2 cup applesauce. It’s a equal swap. 

🍎For every 1/2 cup of oil replaced with applesauce, you will save over 900 calories and 110 grams of fat. It will also make your cakes and baked goods super moist. 

✨GREEK YOGURT SWAP: For everyone 1 cup of oil sub 3/4 cup Greek or plain yogurt. 

Example: If you are using 1/2 cup oil, use 1/4 cup Greek yogurt. For 1/2 cup of oil there is over 900 calories. For 1/4 cup of Greek yogurt there is only 38 calories. 

Greek yogurt adds more protein and cuts fat by 100%

Optional: sriracha and coconut aminos
Mushrooms and green onions for serving

1. In a large pot or Dutch oven, sauté the onions and garlic with 1 tablespoon of sesame seed oil.
