Aldi Favs

Happy New Year! Hopefully you are back in the swing of things and getting after it!
Listed below are my much requested Aldi favs separated out into what I buy organic vs. non there. Unfortunately, it is not a one stop shop for us, but that’s ok because it’s not out of my way!

My rule of thumb is ALWAYS following the EWG dirty dozen+clean fifteen. This EWG list is a shopper’s guide to pesticides in produce. So it is a list of the twelve dirtiest which you should always buy organic when possible, and the clean fifteen is a list of the produce that are ok to buy non-organic. Aldi’s organic selection is awesome for most produce. Some of their packaged items such as tortilla chips aren’t the best option because of the canola oil. So, you will still want to read the ingredients. Maybe try to skip the packaged items anyway! Oh, and the prices are insane. Thank me later. I love Aldi’s commitment to bringing more organic and non-gmo products into their stores!

We always focus on real+whole foods in our house, making the best decision with what we have available. For our own reasons, TEB follows a gluten free lifestyle and my gut functions best dairy+grain free.

Aldi often has what is called “aldi finds” which is usually a really good item priced well…last time I purchased is when it was the Hope Foods hummus, so watch out for those too! When grocery shopping each week, Aldi is always my first stop, then Kroger. The closest Whole foods and Trader Joe’s is an hour away! I will visit those when I travel and take a cooler to grab some must have items.
This is how it goes:
Aldi+Kroger+farmers market: weekly
Thrive Market: monthly
Buy Ranch Direct meat: every other month
Thrive Market is AWESOME! Check it out, if you haven’t already! Here is a link for 25% off your first order if you decide you like it and want to order!
Buy Ranch Direct is where we buy meat. It is 100% grass fed+humanely raised+the freshest sustainable meat delivered to your door. No subscription service or anything like that. They do have pre-made “boxes” to choose from or you can do al la carte, which is what we do.
Do you have some Aldi favorites I should know about?!

What we’re eating: November 10-15

Coming at you a few days late! I got home late Friday night from traveling all week, and placed our grocery order Saturday AM and couldn’t be more thankful for grocery delivery! It makes things so much easier over here! I mean, what even is 2019?! We have access to so many things to make our lives easier! All the praise hands.    

If you’ve been on the fence about grocery delivery or pickup…look at it this way, you could be growing your business or doing something that you are good at during the time you spend at the grocery. Delegate and leverage your time!

What we’re eating: November 2-8

Happy November 1st! It actually already feels like winter over here! We get like 1/2 a day of fall in Kentucky haha.  We’ve really stepped up the game with simple warm foods this week!

Food is such an important thing we do each week. We eat 3 meals a day, so that is 21 chances a week to have foods that serve and nourish our bodies! Making smart choices and being prepared are two things that go hand in hand!

If you are over there saying you don’t have time…hear me when I say, I get it. I too, am very cautious about what I commit to and spend time on! But when it comes to your health, you can’t really afford not to make this a priority! Can you?!
