39 Keto Snacks 'Target' Offers To Make Your Life That Much Easier
The ketogenic diet has hit the mainstream in more ways than one. Now you can find your favorite low-carb keto snacks at just about every big box store and major online retailer that exists (Target, Walmart, Amazon, and Whole Foods, to name a few). And with the ever-increasing need for online shopping, even the big box stores are stocking their virtual shelves with all the keto favorites your heart desires.
If you thought that Target was just a place to get cute bathroom towels and a forty-pack of AA batteries, think again. Not only has it grown into an everything store with cute clothes, essentials, and kitchen appliances, many Targets now offer a legitimate grocery store section. This includes more than boxes of cereal and bags of chips—although there are plenty of those to choose from in the Market Pantry—we're talking a fully stocked refrigerated and frozen section, along with fresh produce for your grocery shopping needs.
With so much to choose from that's in compliance with the keto and low-carb diets, you might find yourself making that one-stop at Target the only stop you need to make!
One of the most exciting things about online shopping at Target is that you can now order to ship, to pick up, or for same-day delivery from a local store. This means that if you're shopping for perishables, you can still get everything you need online.
A clean keto diet focuses on fresh veggies, healthy fats, meats, dairy, nuts, seeds, and eggs, with sprinkles of packaged foods for convenience and when you're in a pinch. So we'll focus on the best keto perishables for in-store pickup and delivery first, then we'll go over the packaged goodies we've all grown to love.
Perishable Keto Treats from Target
Check out the breadth of selection at Target, you might be surprised at what you can find. Just make sure before you start shopping to put in your address so that you know you're searching at the Target near you.
Berries are nature's desert—little bite-sized morsels of sweet and tart goodness that happen to contain enough fiber to keep net carbs low. Target carries blueberries, strawberries, blackberries, and raspberries, all ready to rinse and enjoy. Toss on some homemade whipped cream with keto-friendly sweetener, and you have yourself a healthy and filling snack or dessert.
There are a lot of ways to enjoy an avocado beyond your standard guacamole. Of course, guacamole is a delicious keto snack, but that's not the only thing an avocado is good for! Enjoy them cubed with seasoned salt and a touch of low-sugar balsamic vinegar. Dredge avocado wedges with coconut flour and egg and toss them in the air fryer. The possibilities are endless.
#9 Bagged Coleslaw
#10 Asian Style Chopped Salad Kit
This one might need a little extra time for prep because we don't recommend using the dressing that comes in the bag—there's too much added sugar. But with all the other prep done for you, all you have to do is whisk some sesame oil, gluten-free soy sauce, and a pinch of Swerve with a fork and you have a delicious Asian-inspired dressing for your salad.
Target has sliced, shredded, grated, string cheese, and whole blocks of cheese to choose from. You want to make sure you're getting full-fat cheese, but other than that, you've got your pick of the standards like mozzarella, parmesan, cheddar, cream cheese, Colby Jack, and provolone cheese. Check out their whole selection of fresh cheese here. Opt for organic or grass-fed where you can.
#12-17 Deli Meats
While we don't recommend eating cold cuts or cured meat every single day of your keto diet, it's great to have them on hand for snacks or mid-day meals. Target offers a number of brands with selections of sliced turkey, chicken, uncured ham, roast beef, salami, and pepperoni. Opt for organic or grass-fed with these as well.
Non-Perishable Keto Snacks At Target
Perishable foods should be the bulk of all of our diets, but sometimes, life just gets in the way. These easy keto snacks are great for when your busy life prevents you from spending time in the kitchen.
#18-25 Cheese Crisps
A favorite for just about every snack list we've ever made, you kind of can't go wrong with cheese baked into a crunchy cracker. Parm Crisps come in a variety of flavors, including Sour Cream & Onion, Original, and Cheddar while Whisps come in Cheddar Cheese and Asiago & Pepper Jack. There's also cheese crisp in bar form from Just the Cheese, Good Gather Parmesan Crisps, and Buffalo-flavored Keto Crisps. And as a reminder, these snacks are simply shredded, baked cheese, and you can absolutely make these yourself in your oven at home.
#26-31 SlimFast Keto Bars, Bombs, and Shakes
SlimFast is among the original weight loss products dating all the way back to the 1970s. And since the keto craze is in full swing, they've jumped on the bandwagon to offer some packaged snacks perfect for an afternoon pick-me-up. Target offers a Whipped Peanut Butter Chocolate meal bar and a few fat bomb options like Chocolate Mint Cup, Caramel Nut Clusters, and Peanut Butter Cups. They also offer ready-to-drink shakes and a powder you can mix yourself at home
#32-34 Nuts, Seeds, and Butters
Nuts, seeds, and nut butters are kind of the snacking foundation of the keto diet. Featuring a wide array of micronutrients, healthy fats, and a moderate amount of protein, a spoonful of almond butter can really get you through that 4pm rut. Target offers a number of healthy nut butter brands, including Good & Gather, Justin's, and Marathon. They also offer Sunbutter for those with nut allergies who can still enjoy seeds. You can find the whole selection of nut butters, including almond butter, here and you can find a full selection of raw, roasted, and seasoned nuts here.
Jerky might seem like the most reliable keto-friendly snack, but we can't overstate how critical it is to check the label for sugar content. Keto foods need to have low- or no-sugar ingredients, and sometimes the sugar content in jerky will surprise you. If you're choosing a flavored jerky, make sure the macros fit your daily diet before digging in.
#36-39 Keto Cookies
Target Is Your One-Stop-Shop
Consolidate your shopping list by grabbing some keto essentials from Target. Whether you're looking for low- to no-prep ideas like the ones we've listed here or are on the hunt for more involved cooking like keto pancake mix or brownie mix, you'll find what you're looking for at Target. Target also has staples like olive, avocado, or coconut oil in addition to grain-free flours like almond flour, pecan flour, and hazelnut flour. You won't believe the selection of high-fat snacks and essentials at this big box store.
