Aldi is all about meat this week! And unfortunately not much else. Aldi is my number one store recommendation for doing Keto on a budget based on their great every day prices on Keto staple items.
Most weeks the Aldi sales flyer has at least 1 Keto vegetable, fruit and meat on sale. And you can build a great meal or meal plan with that. Then some weeks like this one, there isn’t much on sale to use in a meal plan.
When that happens, you have a few options.
#1. Rely on what is in your freezer or what is left over from last week.
#2. Shop at a different grocery store or farmer’s market that has produce or Keto fruits on sale. I love doing a one stop shop at Aldi, but when that’s not possible, make a few extra stops
#3. Buy from the selection of Aldi’s regular priced stuff. Aldi’s produce and frozen veggies have pretty reasonable prices. So if nothing is on sale and you can’t do option 1 or 2, pick up a few regular priced items just to get you through the week. Think salads, broccoli, frozen veggies. The price will be fairly low and you’ll survive a few weeks this way-especially since you are a frugal shopper!
The real trick to saving money on Keto is to use what’s on sale over and over throughout the week in different meals.
That way you save money, because you bought what was on sale and you don’t get bored, because you are just re-purposing those sale items at each meal into something tasty that you enjoy.
To help you on this money saving meal planning quest, I’ve put together some links to great recipes that use what is on sale this week.
Always Remember to check your local ad for sale prices and dates in your area!
