Quick Guide to Buying Healthy Food at Walmart

Do Not Be A Slave: Educate Yourself!

Yes, the healthiest way to feed yourself and your family is to buy raw organic whole food and cook it at home. But pretty often we are too busy to afford this luxury. So what we can do? Can we buy healthy food at Walmart? It does become increasingly more difficult to find nutritious food in the present profit-driven and gigantic corporation-dictated economy. Do you know that “ninety percent (90%) of the food produced in the United States is sold to you buy a total of ten conglomerates – Coca-Cola, Con-Agra, Dole, General Mills, Hormel, Kraft, Nestle, Pepsico, Procter and Gamble and Unilever.”? Congratulations with your delusion of “free” choice! However, if you are educated and well-informed, your chances of being a slave of the system are dramatically reduced. Yes, of course, you can shop at Whole Foods Market but unfortunately not everyone is ready to pay 4 to 5 times of what you normally pay at Walmart grocery. For this reason, you may be interested in finding out what nutritious choices you have at Walmart.

Nutritious Choices of Walmart grocery

Yes, the good news is that you can find nutritious foods at Walmart if you pay close attention to the ingredient lists. Please follow the rules below:

  • Rule number one: The shorter the ingredient list the better
  • Rule number two: Reject any products containing numbers in the ingredients like Polysorbate 80 or Red 40, Yellow 5, Blue 1, etc.
  • Rule number three: Use Dye Diet Calculator to see Health Risks and Nutritional Values of any processed foods. Avoid foods with Health Risks exceeded 0.9 and Nutritional Values below 0.9 units.

Let me present a few products you can buy at your local Walmart that are not toxic, at a very least, and are nutritious and healthy.

Melissa’s Lentils and Baby Beets


Melissa's Lentils and Baby Beets

Dye Diet Calculator Health Risk = 0, Nutritional Value = 3.3; 2% sugar by weight; 18 g protein

Below is an example of what you can make with lentils.

1 package of Melissa’s Steamed Lentils

2 Tbsp. of unsalted butter

2 Tbsp. of extra virgin olive oil

½ lb of linguica sausage, sliced ¼” thick

2 cloves of garlic, minced

Heat butter and olive oil in a large pan. Add the sausage and garlic and heat through. Next add the spinach and cook until it begins to wilt. Do not overcook. Add the bell peppers, salt and pepper to taste. Remove from heat and fold in the lentils. Serving suggestion: Line serving bowls with spinach and top with lentil mixture. Serve immediately. Makes about 4 servings.

Baby Beets

Dye Diet Calculator Health Risk = 0, Nutritional Value = Outstanding; 10% sugar by weight; 2 g protein

“Melissa’s Baby Red Beets are grown with the highest standards and chosen for their high quality. You will taste it in every bite!”

You can serve it cold in salads with lettuce, tomatoes or watercress, olive oil, lemon juice, fresh tarragon or basil. As an appetizer with goat cheese and walnuts, with pickled eggs or with orange slices and Maui onions. You can also serve it hot with meats, poultry, fish and vegetarian dishes.

Dannon All Natural Plain Yogurt

Danon All Natural Plain Yogurt

Dye Diet Calculator Health Risk = 0, Nutritional Value = Outstanding; 5% sugar by weight; 8 g protein

Ranchero Part Skim Milk Cheese, twin pack

Ranchero Part Skim Milk Cheese

Dye Diet Calculator Health Risk = 0, Nutritional Value = 1.2; 0% sugar by weight; 6 g protein

Italian Bread Marketside

All Natural Italian Bread

Dye Diet Calculator Health Risk = 0, Nutritional Value = 0.6 (low); 0% sugar by weight; 5 g protein

I know, I know… This is NOT an ideal choice, but… While this bread is far from being perfect (made of enriched bleached wheat flour) it does not contain many potentially harmful food additives that other breads do. The lesser evil… This is another case helping you to understand that the FDA approved “all natural” includes enriched bleached wheat flour. Keep this fact in mind and decide to the best of your interests.

Half and Half milk

Hiland Half and Half milk

Dye Diet Calculator Health Risk = 0, Nutritional Value = 3; 3% sugar by weight; 1 g protein. All it contains is grade A milk and cream and dipotassium phosphate that is OK. No Polysorbate 60 or 80 polymers.

Cinnamon Twists

Cinnamon Twists of Walmart Bakery

Dye Diet Calculator Health Risk = 0, Nutritional Value = 1.1; 27% sugar by weight; 0 g protein

Ritter Sport Dark Chocolate with Hazelnuts

Ritter Sport Dark Chocolate with Hazelnuts

Dye Diet Calculator Health Risk = 0, Nutritional Value = 4.25. This is the best chocolate I have ever tried in my entire life. No chemicals, no PGPR that present in many Wonka chocolates.  37% sugar by weight; 2 g protein. Please note that just reviewed Golden Puffs Malt-O-Meal cereal contains 55% of added sugar!

TOTAL $23.06

Bottom line. Please keep in mind, that there is no such a thing as absolute zero health risk. Even pure water can kill you if you drink a gallon of it as quickly as possible. So when Dye Diet Calculator Health Risk = 0 it tells you that there are no health-damaging food additives present in the product, so it is safe to consume the product in moderation. With the Dye Diet Calculator help, for some $20-23 you can buy healthy food at Walmart grocery which may last for a few days helping you to support health and happiness of yourself and your family. Good luck!

  1. Ideally, daily nutritional needs should be met through healthy eating—but the typical diet does not always supply all the vitamins and minerals a body needs. So even in healthy people, multivitamins and other supplements may help prevent vitamin and mineral deficiencies and they can also provide more nutrients than diet alone, which may help to protect against or manage certain diseases.

  4. “There is broad scientific consensus that genetically engineered crops currently on the market are safe to eat,” Pamela Ronald, a Univeristy of California at Davis professor, wrote for Scientific American in 2011. But the American Academy of Environmental Medicine has warned of “serious health risks” indicated by animal studies measuring the effects of GM foods.

  5. Harley says:

    Although it is often mistaken for obesity, cellulite is not actually obesity
    related because it can also take place in thin lean women.
    For a faster and reliable result, skin care professionals may recommend these therapies
    that are less-invasive to the body. Also, if you
    are being treated by a physician for any type of
    medical condition, it is important to let the office know.
