Maintain your special diet with key foods
Sometimes, the quest to improve your diet, or eat a special one, can seem like an uphill battle. Maybe you have a medical condition that requires you eat a certain way, or perhaps you're just trying to take better care of yourself and your family by shopping for and preparing healthier foods. No matter what type of special diet you're looking for, there are options that'll help you make the right food choices on a regular basis, whether it's:
There are also natural, organic, vegetarian, kosher and halal options. Walmart makes it easier to find the foods you want while simultaneously meeting your dietary needs.
A gluten-free diet excludes the protein gluten, a popular ingredient found in grains like wheat, barley, rye and a wheat/rye hybrid known as triticale. People with celiac disease or non-celiac gluten sensitivity (NCGS) need to eat gluten-free foods, which are made without these grains.
It can be a frustrating journey to look for products without these ingredients, but it's a lot easier when they're categorized together and easy to find. In fact, we offer a long, varied list of delicious foods that satisfy the gluten-free lifestyle, from dinner options like spaghetti (and spaghetti sauce), brown rice, baked beans and canned chicken to snack foods like pretzel sticks, popcorn, tortilla chips and more. There are also plenty of condiments, spices, beverages and other ingredients that don't include gluten, which makes it easy to round out your pantry with all the essentials and some fun treats, too..
You may prefer to give your family natural or organic foods, which are made without ingredients grown with synthetic pesticides or chemical fertilizers.
A food is labeled as organic by the way farmers grow and process agricultural products, and you can find different meats, fruits, vegetables, grains and dairy products all grown organically. Organic farming practices are intended to promote soil and water conservation and also to reduce pollution.
The farmers who grow organic produce don't use what many people would consider conventional methods to fertilize and control weeds. For example, organic farming practices include the use of natural fertilizers to feed the soil and plants, and organic farmers use crop rotation or mulch to manage weeds instead of chemical pesticides.
So what makes a product organic for sure? The US Department of Agriculture (USDA) established a certification program that requires all organic-labeled foods to meet strict government standards first. These standards regulate how such foods are grown, handled and processed. So, any product labeled as organic must be USDA certified. You can look through a variety of foods and check for the organic label on each one, but it's a much easier shopping process when you can find everything in on place on our website.
If you're looking to cut back on your sugar intake or find a sweet alternative, there are plenty of foods to suit your needs. Diabetics and health-conscious individuals need to pay close attention to the amount of sugar in their diets. It's well known that sugar is bad for your teeth. Perhaps your dentist has warned you. Well, chewing sugar-free gum is a great new habit to adopt. Plus, you can satisfy your dessert cravings with sugar-free cookies and beverages. And if you still want to sweeten your food whether it be coffee, tea, cereal or any other food try sugar substitutes like blue agave nectar, wild honey or stevia extract. Even condiments, sauces and spices come in sugar-free varieties.
If you've chosen a vegetarian lifestyle, there's good food news for you. You have plenty of options to choose from. Vegetarian foods are made without meat or fish, while vegan foods go a step further and exclude all animal products, like dairy, honey and eggs.
Don t worry about a lack of protein in a vegetarian or vegan diet. Products like lentils, black beans, quinoa, hummus and more offer the necessary protein to build muscle and keep you going strong.
