Have you ever read the “what’s in my bag” article? I can’t remember if its People or Us Weekly but I know it was nothing too educational 😉 You know where celebrities will spill their purse and let you know what’s all in it? This is not nearly as interesting but it will be much better for us in the long run!
Here is a sneak peek of what’s in my cart! I’m on a mission, a food budget mission. Our food budget used to consume SO much of our budget. I realized that I needed to start finding more affordable options. But I didn’t want to sacrifice eating mainly organic and all natural food. So where do I find good food at a good price?
Update: this 21 Day Fix grocery list for Aldi will also work for 80 Day Obsession! I’m going to be starting 80 Day Obsession soon and am going to be using a lot of these items! If you’re looking for
My Favorite Places to Shop for Groceries on a Budget
My favorite places to shop are Trader Joes, Target, Costco, Aldi, Whole Foods, Walmart and farmers markets. I’ve gone through seasons of life and season of the year when different routines make sense. One long-standing favorite has been Aldi.
What is Aldi? Aldi is actually a world-wide grocery chain best known for its value. The reason why Aldi is price reasonably is because they sell mostly private label items. This includes their own private label organic line. You can also find grass fed and organic meat as well as organic dairy, produce, and vegetables. It’s true, there are no bells and whistles with Aldi.
But if you’re on a budget and short on time, do you really need all of that? I’ve been quite pleased with Aldi’s quality and the price can’t be beat. So if you’re looking to eat healthier and support diets like the 21 Day Fix, Paleo, or Whole30, Aldi can be your match!

Trader Joe’s is another favorite of mine when looking for healthy and 21 Day Fix approved items.

You still have to read some labels and check for ingredients, but all in all, there is a lot of great food at an awesome value when you shop at Trader Joe’s.
