Whole30 Target Must Haves
Another day another list!! My Whole30 Must Have lists from Aldi, Trader Joes, Ralphs, Costco, Amazon and Thrive Market have been a HIT so why not keep this train in motion? I didn’t realize how many people grocery shop at Target until the requests started rolling in. And I was even more excited to see how many great compliant options they had there!! Some that I hadn’t seen in any other store. So although my usual trips to Target result in me filling my cart with decor and clothes, I think from now on the grocery section might be what really tips my cart over the edge!! Okay time to cut to the chase – here are 17 items I found that are Whole30 compliant at Target! Also, I want to note, I live in southern California and options may change by store and state!
Target Whole30 Sauces & Condiments:
The Simple Balanced Garlic Marinara Pasta Sauce and Muir Glen Garden Vegetable Sauce are both sugar and additive free!! There are lots of other sauces there and I didn’t read every label but these were my favorite ones! These are great to use in my Cheeseless Chicken Parm recipe!
This Simply Balanced Roasted Garlic Salsa was one of the only compliant options! They also had a cantina style that was compliant. These are perfect to throw in a crockpot with chicken for my Slow Cooker Salsa Chicken w/ Sweet Potato Rice!
This A Taste of Thai Coconut Milk was clean – perfect for my Thai Curry Turkey Meatballs. And Franks Red Hot sauce is perfect for making chicken wings or mixing into a chicken salad! NOTE: The buffalo sauce pictured is not compliant as it has canola oil but their regular hot sauce is!!
Target Whole30 Nutty Goodness:
I just love nut butters!! These Simply Balanced Almond & Cashew Nut butters are perfect to put on Sweet Potato Toast or dip celery or apples in for a snack!
Who doesn’t love Lara bars?! They have soooo many compliant flavors at target (basically just avoid the ones with chocolate) but these are some fun ones! Matt LOVES the cashew cookie and we just picked up these fruits and greens which are a bit smaller and pack lots of flavor!
Target Whole30 Fruits & Veggies:
Of course fruits and veggies are compliant but these are some that make your life easier. Frozen fruit like strawberries are great to work into a sauce or have as a little snack! This broccoli, carrot and cauliflower mix is great to add into Cauliflower Fried Rice!!
They also have these Green Giant Cauliflower Crumbles that are perfect for Cauliflower Fried Rice too!!
Target Whole30 Meats:
These are some that caught my eye – hello beautiful frozen salmon! I also spotted these Applegate cooked chicken breast strips that are perfect to throw into a salad, a chicken salad or eat when you are too busy to cook. I also saw this Applegate Roast Beef that is compliant and so delish!!
Target Whole30 Drinks:
I looked at everryyyy broth and stock and this was the only compliant one!! Notice it is the BONE BROTH – not a chicken broth or chicken stock. This can be used as a normal broth is in a sauce or soup, but you can also just heat up a cup to drink!
La Croix!!! If you are a whole30er you probably have enjoyed many of these but target always has great prices and tons of flavor options!! I love these newer pineapple strawberry ones! Gotta love all these Target Whole30 Finds.

Thanks for this! The “Buffalo” version of Frank’s Red Hot usually contains Canola Oil. Does the version in CA not?
AH Lindsay thank you for catching that!! You are right I didn’t even realize. The regular hot sauce is compliant but buffalo is not. I made a correction in the post – THANK YOU!!!
I had thought that the cashew butter was compliant but it’s nice to have it confirmed! Also — the Larabars! I too love Cashew Cookie and a box of the Pineappe and Kale is in my office closet for emergencies! (And have you seen the minis? I use them to tide me over between lunch and my 7 pm “dinner break” [only 15 min long] at my evening retail part-time job.) THANK YOU for the Target list! I don’t shop there for groceries a lot but when I am there for other things I usually take a walk through groceries just in case . . . and now I have specific things I can pick up!
That is great!! And 15 minutes for dinner?? That’s terrible! I am so glad this is helpful to you!!!
Hi Kelsey! What did you think about the salmon? I tried a frozen salmon from Target once, I’m not sure if it was this same brand, but it was really yucky. I love your blog! I made your paleo everything bagels this week and they are a big hit in my house. I am thinking of doing a May Whole 30 so I’m looking for some new recipes!
I liked it!! So glad you like my recipes! I have lots of good Whole30 recipes coming out for spring/ summer!
Hi I have no idea how to make a new post I just came across your post. Thanks for all the info:-) I also found Target now carries Tessemae’s Whole 30 compliant Ranch dressing and Balsamic Vinagerette dressing;)
Hi! Thanks for the list. I bought the Target Simply Balanced organic garlic marinara sauce, but now I am second guessing myself that it is Whole 30 approved. It says tomato paste in the ingredients, and I know some tomato pastes can have sugar. Are we sure this marinara sauce is approved? Thanks!
Yes it is!! tomato paste is just tomatoes, it will say sugar if it is added!
The marinara has 4g sugar
Unless it says sugar in the ingredients that 4g would be natural sugars which is fine.
Thank you so much for this! Hubby and I are going into our second week of Whole 30 and you’re lists are s-o-o-o-o-o helpful. The lists make the plan seem a lot less daunting.
Ah that is great!! So glad they are helpful and great job!!!
I just went online to look at the marinara sauces you posted about from target and Aldi and all of them had sugar listed as an ingredient! This post may need to be updated!!
I have a note about the Aldi one but target?! Good to know, thank you!!
Which target one? I just looked and they are both sugar free!
I was intrigued by this WOE but you lost me at “avoid the chocolate…” A square of 70% chocolate per day has saved me many times! If eating chocolate is wrong, I don’t wanna be right!
Cantina salsa references in text has organic sugar added. Bummer.
Some stores may differ! This one was compliant!
Do you have all your store lists in pdf format? Would love to print them off but only see the Trader Joes one in pdf. Thanks in advance!
I will have them available in PDF next week!
What about nightshades? Marinara and salsa don’t seem like they would be compliant
Nightshades are allowed on whole30!
