Need some inspiration for a healthy meal plan for your family? Here’s an Aldi meal plan with 7 recipes using whole-food ingredients, a printable shopping list, and recipes. We use Aldi for the shopping list, but most of the ingredients can be found at other popular grocery chains.
BEFORE YOU SHOP
Here are a couple of quick, standard notes and disclaimers that will apply to most of our meal plans. While SOME recipes may be gluten-friendly or dairy-free or keto, these plans don’t typically follow any types of restrictions (except Lindsey, whose household is gluten-free.) Email us directly if you have any questions or refer to specific recipe creators where it applies.
Also, we mostly follow USDA recommendations when it comes to portion sizes for meat, etc. That means we stick to 3-4 ounce portions of chicken, beef, fish, etc. We try to stick with as much organic meat as possible, and that access can vary. If you get your hands on organic turkey, pork or other cuts of meat, feel free to sub in where desired. See FAQ for more.
These healthy Aldi meals come out to about $10/dinner, but that doesn’t include tax. In West Virginia and Ohio, we don’t have a food sales tax, but Ali and Lindsey do in Tennessee, so keep that in mind when you are budgeting. Another disclaimer: Prices, product availability, and coupons will obviously vary from region to region.
Don’t Stress Too much
Finally, we all do the best we can when it comes to eating mostly organic, but we aren’t going to find every ingredient every time that’s organic. If you find something on our shopping list that you can’t get organic, simply do the best you can with your options. Conversely, if you CAN find something that’s organic that we have listed as “conventional” on the list, feel free to grab that option. If you need an updated list of what produce to buy organic we’ll email you a free printable for the Clean 15/Dirty Dozen. Get it HERE.
