Where should you start when you want to reevaluate your health and create new healthy living habits? The kitchen and grocery store, of course! 

Focusing on your nutrition and how you fuel your body sets the foundation for all aspects of your health. If you are looking to have more energy, improve your mood, get fit, or even be more productive, the place to start is in the kitchen.

But isn’t eating healthy expensive? 

Don’t fall for this myth!  ALDI has you covered with everything from fresh produce to organic meats all at unbeatable prices. I am always pleasantly surprised when I go shopping at ALDI and find healthy foods I usually buy at the grocery store–like avocados, yogurt, and protein bars–at amazingly low prices. 

Here are a few of my favorite healthy snacks, meals, and treats you can make with the help of ALDI!

Snack Formula Bowls: If you want a snack that will keep you full and provide you with energy so you aren’t sluggish between meals, try my Snack Formula: protein plus a fruit or vegetable. Protein helps keep you full and satisfied while the carbohydrates or sugars in fruits and vegetables will fuel your body so you can take on the day. ALDI has so many healthy snacking options, so take your pick!

Plant-Packed Pasta Dish: Including more plant-based foods in your diet is a great way to support overall health, and a plant-packed pasta dish is a perfect place to start! I love using Simply Nature Organic Edamame Spaghetti, which has more fiber and protein than other pasta, with Earth Grown Vegan Meatless Meatballs. Throw it all in a bowl with Simply Nature Organic Marinara Sauce and your favorite steamed veggies! I went with steamed broccoli and Brussels sprouts but any vegetables will do. (Hack: ALDI has a great selection of frozen vegetables to cut back on meal prep time.)

Chocolate Chia Seed Mousse: Struggle with your sweet tooth? No problem! Enjoy this guilt-free dessert using nutrient-packed chia seeds topped with coconut cream, nuts, and mini chocolate chips.
