We have a ton of options for dinner meal plans on our site, and even some easy breakfast meal prep ideas. Want to make your meal planning even easier? Of course you do! That means you probably want to add breakfast options to your shopping list. Specifically, we have some healthy breakfasts to make from Aldi.
Obviously, you don’t need to buy these ingredients from Aldi. If you’re already doing weekly or bi-weekly runs for dinner meal plans, some breakfast inspiration could be helpful.
These are combos you can make from (mostly) organic choices at Aldi. (You can find a comprehensive list of everything you can buy organic at Aldi here.) Prices and availability will vary from region to region.

Aldi doesn’t have a ton of organic options for cereal, but they do have a few. They also have organic whole, 2 percent, and fat free milk. There are also organic almond and soy milk options.
Organic instant oatmeal
We don’t love instant oatmeal, but it is an organic option at Aldi. I personally find instant oatmeal too mushy and too sweet. I prefer organic old-fashioned rolled oats. We usually buy these elsewhere. We have a whole post dedicated to oats here. You’ll find about 50 ideas for overnight oats, baked oatmeal, muffins, breakfast cookies and bars, steel cut oats, smoothies, and more.
Organic bagels/ seasonal bread
In the fall of 2019, Aldi carried three varieties or organic bagels and two kinds of organic pumpkin-spice bread. Hopefully those will return. If you find them in store, definitely pick some up!
Keep an eye out for new Aldi Finds! They have everything from sous vide eggs to seasonal cheese options.
Aldi has the BEST produce. We typically stick to the Clean 15/Dirty Dozen, so there are a TON of options for fruit.
Mix and match for a fruit salad, smoothie bowl, yogurt parfait, etc. It’s the perfect addition to your healthy breakfast from Aldi.
-Organic berries (strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, raspberries)
Meal prepping and planning for breakfast
If you need ideas on how to start meal planning, start with setting a grocery budget. Next, find a meal planning-template that works for you. We have free, printable meal plans complete with grocery lists available. If you want some quick and easy meal prep breakfast ideas to simplify your weekly routine, we have that covered as well.
Breakfast plan in action
We almost always shop for a two-week period at a time. For our family of five, we typically buy:
- two-three dozen eggs
- two 32-cartons of organic yogurt
- 1 box of Simply Nature organic Pumpkin Flax granola
- 1-2 boxes of cereal, seasonal fruit
- a variety of organic greens (spinach, kale, etc.)
- 2-3 bunches of bananas
- 3 (½) gallons of organic varieties of milk
- We buy five pounds of organic rolled oats locally ($8.99) that lasts us about two months.
One weekend day, we’ll do something with breakfast meat. Applegate breakfast sausages are our favorite, but Aldi doesn’t sell these ☹. They DO carry nitrate-free bacon under the Never Any! label.
A two-week meal plan for breakfasts might look like this.
Sunday-pancakes and bacon
Tuesday-apple cinnamon overnight oats
Thursday-leftovers (mix and match from leftover egg muffins and oatmeal bake usually) or toast
Friday-cereal, toast, or yogurt
Sunday-French toast with sausage
Tuesday-mixed berry overnight oats
Wednesday-Baked chocolate chip oatmeal muffins
Thursday-Leftovers/ fruit and yogurt
Friday-Toast or cereal
Ideas on Ideas
Other weekend breakfast favorites include waffles, biscuits and gravy (all from scratch!) We also love bagels and cream cheese, breakfast burritos, and breakfast cookies. Sometimes we’ll throw in banana bread, muffins, steel cut oats, grits, etc. into the mix.
Other popular weekly breakfasts for Lindsey’s family-chia seed pudding. Jodi’s family loves doing smoothies during the week.
Breakfast isn’t a one-size-fits-all thing. We like to switch things up seasonally. That means pumpkin-spice everything in the fall. In winter, we love gingerbread or cranberries. Carrot cake oats top the list in the spring. We’re ALL about the fresh berries in the summer. Chocolate, of course, is in season ALL the time 😊.
