Low Carb Grocery List! πŸ…πŸˆπŸ’πŸ˜„πŸ‘

  • Many people would be willing to try sugar free/low carb if they had guidance as to how and where to start. It's not difficult, but can certainly be overwhelming to start. This is a shopping list that I keep myself. I may not buy everything on the list every time, but its an excellent reference. Some of these items may not be essentials for the sugar free/low carb newbie, but keep it on hand for when you are more comfortable with low carbing.

  • ALWAYS READ LABELS! Look first at the Carbohydrate content. Keep it as low as possible! Usually, if it is low in carbs it is low in sugar, but not always the other way around so ALWAYS CHECK THE NUTRITION LABELS!

  • Other Items used for snacks or
    low carb cooking:

    I've included some of them here, but altogether do try to avoid "Sugar Free" products as much as you can because they contain artificial sweeteners that just aren't good for anyone's health. Plus, for some people, artificial sugars can cause a stall in weight loss.

  • Sometimes I do eat these though as a special treat or when i'm really craving something sweeter, but I really try to do my best to stay away from them. Also, always opt for Stevia Products over other artificial sweeteners such as Splenda. Stevia is plant derived and is the most natural option. In fact, you can grow a Stevia plant on your own and use it to sweeten your food at home!

  • -Sugar Free Jell-O
    -Sugar Free Pudding Mix
    -Diet Hot Cocoa (read labels)
    -Coffee

    -Flax Seed
    -Nuts (watch portion sizes! Almonds are best. Cashews are the worst)
    -Pork Rinds
    -Nut flours and Guar or Xanthan Gum-(Not an essential this minute but when you get more comfortable with everything and want to start baking low carb you'll need this to replace the gluten in flour which you wont be using.
