Lidl Keto Grocery Shopping List + Can’t Miss Items

When you’re shopping at Lidl, be sure to have the Lidl app downloaded onto your smartphone. It will allow you to plan ahead with next week’s flyer. They’ll always give the upcoming deals in the flyer vs. this week’s special prices. The app can also be scanned at the cash register for coupons. It will feature coupons based upon your shopping habits too. So the more you shop, the more you’ll save on the items you buy regularly.

Upon entering, you’ll want to bypass the fresh bakery. Sadly, I couldn’t find any keto options in the bakery and it was just too tempting with the special German baked good to pick from. Go straight to the produce department to start.

You’ll notice that Lidl offers their own private label. In fact, over 80% of their products are their own label. I’ve found it to be high quality too. That’s one of the reasons you can save so much money when shopping at Lidl.

When shopping from the Lidl Keto Grocery Shopping List I made below, the items with an *asterisk* are speciality can’t miss keto items you’ll only find at Lidl. Example prices below are subject to change.

Fresh Meats & Seafood Market

They’ve got such a great selection of fresh meats to pick from. There are so many choices that it can be overwhelming. I would stick to what’s on sale and plan your meals around that. They’ve got fresh meats and frozen to pick from. Here are a few favorites:

Pre-Packaged Ready To Eat Meal Solutions

One of the most tempting things available at Lidl are the ready-to-go meal ideas. While many options include carb heavy options like bread and pizzas, there several pre-packaged meats that you can pick up with low carbs. These are great for lettuce wrap tacos or to toss on top of salads:

  • Pork Carnitas
  • Bourbon Glazed Chopped Pork
  • Pulled Chicken BBQ ($3.49 each)

Lidl Keto Dairy Products

I could spend all day shopping in their dairy department. You’ll find tons of great specialty cheeses, deli meats to pick from and basics. However, they really lack in the yogurt area. I can’t find any keto-friendly yogurt or cottage cheese options. You’ll save tons of money on keto basics though:

  • Eggs (.87 per dozen – $2.79 per dozen organic)
  • Cream Cheese
  • Almond Milk
  • Gourmet Cheeses
  • Shredded Cheeses For Cooking
  • Cheese & Meat Snack Wraps
  • Sous Vide Eggs
  • Packaged Dips: Spinach Dip, Buffalo Dip, Pimento Cheese Dip

Baking Products & Spices

Unfortunately, you won’t find any stevia chocolate for baking. They really lacked low carb baking options, but I found some basics at excellent prices. Definitely stock up on shelf-stable baking essentials when you’re shopping at Lidl:

  • Organic Olive Oil ($3.49 per 17 oz bottle)
  • Organic Spices (.99 each)
  • Hempseed Oil
  • Coconut Oil
  • Chopped Pecans, Walnuts
  • Sugar Substitutes
  • Coconut Flour
  • Almond Flour
  • Chia Seed Oil ($5.99 per 3.38 oz bottle)
  • Sugar Free Syrup
  • Monk Fruit Syrup
  • Sugar Free Flavoring Syrups (for coffees and baking)

Packed Goods: Snack Foods

While there aren’t a diverse amount of keto-friendly snack foods at Lidl, I noticed what they did offer came in sizes that I couldn’t find anywhere else. If you’re a fan of Whisps Cheese Crisps, they sell the large bag for $8.99. Typically, you can only find the large bag at membership stores (like Costco or Sams), but it’s a better price and no membership required. Here are a few picks:

  • Dry Roasted Cashews
  • Pistachios
  • Dry Roasted Almonds
  • Whisps Cheese Crisps
  • Parmesan Crisps
  • German Wafer Cookies (4g of carbs per cookie)
  • Coffee and Tea
  • Pork Rinds

I always stock up on canned goods for my pantry because they’re shelf stable. When you find awesome prices, it’s a great idea to stock up on your favorites. Here are a few that I found:

  • Canned Olives
  • Canned Chicken
  • Tuna
  • Chicken Broth
  • Beef Broth
  • Sippable Chicken Stock
  • Canned Pumpkin

Frozen Keto Foods At Lidl

The frozen section has some great prices. You won’t be able to find keto-friendly ice cream options, but they’ve got a few other can’t miss items that make it worthwhile. Stores like Lidl are known for getting in different products, so it’s worth your time to keep checking back for new stuff. Here are a few items I spotted:

  • Frozen Berries
  • Cool Whip Topping
  • Sugar-Free Popsicles
  • Frozen Cauliflower Pizza Crust
  • Frozen Vegetables
  • Frozen Vegetable Tots by Green Giant
  • Frozen Fruit and Vegetable Mixes (for smoothie making)

Beverage Section at Lidl

Lidl has a fairly nice sized beverage section that includes beer and craft wine. I did not see any specific low sugar wine, but it’s worth keeping an eye on. The prices of bottled water really stick out the most – you can save a lot of money by purchasing bottled water at Lidl

  • Sparkling Water
  • Diet Sodas (Coke products)
  • Gallon Water Jugs
  • Bottled Water in Cases
