Since I became aware of the word diet (a word that I hate by the way, but that’s another day, another blog post 🙂 ) I knew that there were a ton of different diets you could do to lose weight. The first diet I remember was the Atkins diet.  It was really popular among celebrities so of course it became something that everyone tried!

Since that time, several other diet plans have become popular and had their diet day in the sun. Right now, the Keto diet is gaining a ton of popularity.  Even though I don’t personally follow it and likely won’t in the foreseeable future (mainly because I love fruit and grains), I have several friends who love it and swear by it.

I do believe that a low carb diet has many benefits and try to eat as few carbs as I can at certain times of the day.

What is the Keto Diet

Before I tell you about what the Keto diet is, I disclaim that any and all “diet” that you choose to follow should be discussed with your doctor.

In a quick and dirty Keto tutorial, the Keto diet is basically where you eat higher amounts of fats and lower amounts of carbs.  Once done properly, following a Keto diet will send your body into a state of ketosis, during which your stored fat is used as energy.

So, your calories are coming from fat, not carbs.  Thus, your body burns your stored fat!  If the Keto diet is something you’re looking to follow, it can become quite pricey to purchase fresh, organic foods, right?!

In an effort to help you stay on budget, this post is going to help you navigate the Keto diet at my favorite budget friendly keto store, Aldi!

    When I was in Australia recently, I became obsessed with Aldi! I’ve never been to an Aldi here in the states yet, but I’ll have to check it out!

    Do all Aldi’s have almond flour? I have not seen it at mine but I’m hoping I just missed it. I’ve been having to buy small bags from Kroger for $8.

      It’s possible that yours does not. It’s a bummer!! There have been times when my Aldi has run special promotional items. Sometimes it’s just seasonal and sometimes they are doing a test. I would let your local Aldi manager know that you would want almond flour, I’m sure that’s something they could pass on to management!

      If you have a Sam’s membership, they sell almond flour much cheaper than at a regular grocery store. Costco probably does, too, but I don’t have a membership there, so I’m not sure.


        December 8, 2018 at 1:13 pm

        agree! I like to buy mine in bulk when I can! So much cheaper 🙂

      Its so expensive. If you need it for one recipe Whole Foods has it by the pound you could get a scoop of it instead of having to buy a whole bag.

    I just started the Keto diet June 1st and it was a struggle at first but I am slowly getting the hang of it. I am definitely having a hard time figuring out my shopping cuz I go to 2 different stores to get everything I need to meal prep


      June 19, 2018 at 9:27 am

      I can relate! Starting anything new is hard but hopefully you’ll find some tried and true recipes and products that will make it easier 🙂 good luck!

    Be careful with Aldi nut butters and yogurt! Even though they are simply nature or organic, most contain added sugar, a no-no on keto :/. Just be sure to read your labels ?
