This Week's Paleo Shopping List for Aldi

I am doing my grocery shopping only at Aldi this weekend.

I obviously shop there a lot.  If you don't have an Aldi, Trader Joe's is an alternative.  They are similar (because owned by the same family I hear), although TJ is more organic and specialty (pricier).  We are lucky enough to now have both.  I frequent Aldi more than TJ because it is more convenient for me and less tempting to overspend.

I always check out Aldi's produce specials from the flyer before I go.  Sometimes when I get there it doesn't all look good or their truck hasn't come in yet (like a few week's ago when I wanted strawberries), so I have to be ready to adapt.

The plan is to just fill in some odds and ends.  Not a huge grocery trip this week.  Here's the list.

  1. tomatoes (can always freeze them) -sale 99¢/24oz.
  2. mushrooms -sale 79¢/8oz.
  3. bell peppers (can freeze)* -sale 3 for 99¢
  4. broccoli crowns -sale 79¢/lb.
  5. zucchini -sale 3 for 99¢
  6. bananas
  7. bag of chicken
  8. ground turkey
  9. frozen orange juice concentrate (for smoothies)
  10. dry roasted unsalted almonds
  11. raisins

So far I am doing well on staying within the budget this month, which is a good thing, because spring is expensive around here! (car tags, swimming lessons, pool pass, lots of  birthdays, you name it!)

*I know peppers are like #1 on the dirty dozen, but these are such a good price, I can't pass them up... I'll just try to wash them really well!? :-/
