Aldi Haul

>> Monday, May 2, 2016

Here are my top five favorites from this week's Aldi haul. Organic seedy bread. A gigantic package of strawberries (for just $5!). Eight (!!!) avocados that were like half price. Canned pumpkin -- again -- at a half price steal. And Boca burgers for crazy weeknights.

I'll admit that I got really lazy and started going to Wegmans for the bulk of my shopping in recent months. It had everything to do with my cravings, but I can't believe how much our grocery budget got out of control. Last night, we filled our cart to the brim with more than a week's worth of food at Aldi for $101 . . . and I didn't even write a list. Score.

We got:

  • Organic tortilla chips
  • Greek yogurt
  • Organic whole milk yogurt
  • Cereal
  • Organic popcorn
  • Large package rolled oats
  • Organic apple instant oats
  • Organic honey
  • Unrefined coconut oil
  • Pound of walnuts
  • Organic soy milk
  • 4 cans chickpeas
  • 4 cans pumpkin puree
  • 2 packages whole wheat tortillas
  • Loaf organic seedy bread
  • 2 blocks of cheese
  • 1 package queso fresco 
  • Package string mozzarella
  • Organic bananas
  • Strawberries
  • Green onions
  • Carrots
  • Zucchini
  • Onions 
  • Large container spring mix greens
  • Small container arugula greens
  • Multicolored bell peppers
  • 8 avocados 
  • 2 packages Boca burgers 
  • 2 packages of unsweetened organic applesauce
  • Organic linguine noodles
  • Organic pasta sauce
  • Organic quinoa
  • Pizza sauce
I'm probably surely forgetting something. Anyway, if you haven't shopped Aldi in a while -- GO BACK. I'm not paid to write this. I just feel super enthusiastic about the store. I feel like in the few months we haven't been there that they've started carrying even more delicious organic items. I was skipping around the aisles.

Meals for the week are pretty basic.

Breakfasts will be either oatmeal or cereal with strawberries and/or banana. Plus we have yogurt on the side!  

Lunches will be hummus melts or large salads. Ada usually eats PBJ. Sliced peppers or  carrots on the side with applesauce, misc. pantry snacks (popcorn, etc.).  

Dinners will be veggie burgers, slow cooker soup + tasty biscuits, veggie quesadillas, linguine + veggie pasta, breakfast for dinner, something with quinoa, and a few I'm not sure of yet.

My favorite snack/dessert this week: Vegan chocolate + peanut butter no-bake cookies -- no refined sugar. Stay tuned for that recipe soon.
