Trader Joes- A weeks worth of groceries under $110 for a family of 4 (Gluten Free, Dairy Free)

December 12, 2016Living Freely Gluten Free

I am not shy about talking about my love affair with Trader Joes. As far as a gluten free diet goes, Trader Joe’s really does help keep the cost down while being able to buy some fun snacks.

We live on a very tight budget and there are countless times I have heard people tell me, “I can’t afford to shop at Trader Joes.” Like, wha… what!? Trader Joe’s is actually affordable and reasonable. Pretty much every product that I purchase there is an excellent price. Either lower or the same prices as purchasing at a discount type store.

I wanted to show you how you could easily purchase groceries for an entire week and spend less than $110 to feed a family of 4. This list included breakfast, lunch, and dinner.If snacks are essential to you then you would have to go over $110, unless you baked you own with ingredients you already have in the pantry.

This is under the usumption that you have built your gluten free pantry and have basic staples such as seasonings, spices and oils.


Oatmeal- Follow the directions on the bag and add any of your favorite mix-ins. We enjoy a little maple syrup and raisins.
Eggs, Potatoes and Bacon
Frozen Waffles


Sandwich- There is lunch meat and dairy free cheese included on the grocery list.


Boxed Soup (Black Bean)


Spaghetti (Ground beef cooked with some of your favorite Italian seasonings and a jar of sauce) with a bag of GF noodles. Serve green beans with it. You can add some sautéed carrots and onion to it for extra flavor.

GF Chicken Nuggets, French Fries and Green Beans- Bake according to directions and cook the green beans your favorite way. I saute mine in avocado oil and season with sea salt, pepper and granulated garlic.

If you like meal plans you would enjoy my 2 E-books. Both contain a meal plan and grocery list for a week with tons of extra recipes. All recipes are gluten and dairy free.
