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!
