Compliant Packaged Deli Meats

Recommended Posts

I've done several Whole30's and have spent a ton of money on awesome products.  This time around, I'm planning to do a reduced-budget Whole30 (September).  The one product I'm having trouble finding is packaged deli meat.  My goal is to go to my local Walmart, Kroger or Aldi to find budget-friendly products.  If you can help, I would SO appreciate it!  Thanks in advance - Di

Hello Di. From my experience, I've never been able to find compliant + deli meat + budget-friendly. I did eat compliant hot dogs which I enjoyed. Otherwise, I just cooked my own meat, mostly chicken.

I'm a big fan of the idea of doing things at home, just because I know I can almost always get better value for my money that way... with that in mind, here's a recipe I came across not long ago that has me wanting to make some turkey sandwich meat :)

If making it at home isn't an option, though, here's a post with some information on brands and where to find them:

I'm an extremely budget-conscious shopper, and I can tell you that I've never found compliant deli meat with a price I felt was affordable for my own budget (hence typically just doing things at home instead). I have used (and still do) Garret Valley's paleo bacon, but bacon is more of a seasoning/additive than an actual meat in my house; I absolutely never buy it unless it's on sale, though, or if I actually happen to see it at LIDL instead of Sprouts.

Good luck!

I can find compliant turkey deli meat at my local Costco. The brand is True Story. 

Applegate also has a partnership with Whole30 and has a number of Whole30 approved products, including deli meat. This brand is probably  more likely to be found in a regular grocery store.
