People consistently tell me that cost is one of the biggest factors keeping them from eating healthy real foods. I’m always looking for the best deal so we can stretch our food budget as much as possible. Probably 2 years ago or so an Aldi opened up in our neighborhood. When it first came I expected it to be a slummy store full of processed foods like a similar discount grocery chain near me. I was completely surprised to find organic options, a full gluten-free line, and tons of quality fresh produce! In the last 6 months Aldi really stepped up their game, now stocking a wide selection of organic and paleo friendly options.
Aldi is a sister company of Trader Joe’s and it shows. It is clean and organized with a friendly and
diverse staff. They pay much higher and offer benefits not available to the typical grocery store worker, which makes for a much more pleasant shopping experience. Aldi is able to offer such low prices by running an efficient and low overhead store. I personally prefer the setup as it makes shopping quick, efficient, environmentally friendly, and to the point.
At the end of this post you will find three different Aldi shopping lists so you can save some money, shop easier, and eat well! Start with the Aldi paleo shopping list and build on it with the other two.
