What Can An Aldi Food Shop of £33 Really Get You?

I was super proud of my food shop today, after a few too many unhealthy treats over the festive period I was craving good nutritious meals. So I jumped to aldi first thing and this was what I bought (see below). I understand that sometimes people find it hard to get creative with meals what they buy, so I wanted to give you an idea on what kinds of meals which I will make from this list for breakfast, snacks, lunch and dinner. This will likely last me over a week.

There are not many complex carbohydrates here, so I would advise you to add in some sweet potato or rice with your meals for after your workout. Eating this way will assist in fat loss, less sugar cravings due to the unprocessed nature of these meals. I would also recommend drinking either only water, black coffee/ tea or a milk alternative such as Almond milk or herbal tea. Yes that means throw that soda away!

Don’t be afraid of spices too to jazz the meals up with spices too. I love spice so I have cayenne pepper over my meals. It tastes amazing with Eggs 😉

Would love to hear how you budget and get creative with your meals to stay healthy, please comment in the box below.
