Aldi, you either love em or hate em.
I'm an Aldi convert, and lover! From their quirky adds to their no nonsense approach, I'm a huge fan.
And let's get real for a minute: I don't need a grocery store to look like Whole Foods when it's prices are this good. And you know what - I'll happily bag my own groceries without a breath of complaint. I've been bagging my own food for years since living in Europe anyway, so bring on the savings!
If you're looking to save some cash, and also like affordable organic finds, check out my personal Aldi Australia favs:
1. Organic Olive Oil
Delicious, fruity, organic, and oh so affordable.
2. Natural Crunchy Peanut Butter
I usually buy natural peanut butter for $5 a pop at the grocery store. Their Oh So Natural smooth/crunchy peanut butter is a very close second and will save you some cash. This is my go-to peanut butter I'll use for baking, energy balls and smoothies.
3. California Walnuts
I love California walnuts! Call me crazy, but I think they really are the best in the world. They are packaged in plastic, so I just empty the nuts into my glass jars and then recycle the bag with my other soft plastics at Red Cycle.
4. Dry Gnocchi, by Remano
5. Organic Cacoa
6. Organic Eggs x 6
"You eat what you eat eats." This is one of my favourite quotes from the incredible mind of Michael Polen. So if you're eating eggs from a chicken that's been fed GMO corn, then you're eating GMO corn. Ew. Organic all the way.
7. Tamar Valley Dairy Kid's Yogurt (110 grams)
I try not to give my daughter yogurt on the go, but if we have a long road trip coming up, I like to grab one or two of these pouches for emergencies. They have a variety of flavours to choose from, and I pick whichever flavour has the lowest amount of sugar.
8. Almond milk
Inner Goodness almond milk can be found on the shelf or in the fridge at Aldi. The reason I like it is because of the ingredient list and it's also carrageenan free (a must if are consuming plant based milk. Carrageenan is a known carcinogenic!). Make sure you read your labels guys!
9. Goji Berries
These berries are a real superfood and are great value at Aldi, a lot cheaper than buying them in bulk. I add them to oatmeal in the morning, but more often then not, my daughter will eat them dry for a quick snack at the park or on the go.
10. Organic Kombucha (Lo Bros Peach and Ginger and the Raspberry Lemonade)
Everywhere else you'll pay at least $4, or more, for a single bottle of 330ml of 'buch. For $2.79 these are hard to beat, and the two flavours I mentioned above are stand outs! They also have 750ml bottles for purchase as well.
Well done Aldi, thanks for listening to your consumers. You really are a force to be reckoned with!
