This week my husband won’t be eating at home at all because of his work schedule so I did an Aldi run for the week. I have eggs, milk and meat at home so this was mostly a produce trip.
Here is what I purchased!
3 yogurts are missing from this picture as my kids were so excited I bought yogurt that they had one each after dinner. I don’t buy that item often as we treat it nutritionally the same as ice cream. One of these buddies has 17g of sugar. 4g is the equivalent of a teaspoon and 3 teaspoons is one tablespoon so here you have about a tablespoon and a half of sugar in an item many people believe is a health food. It’s a dessert in this house. But on occasion and at request I’ll buy them. I believe firmly that always being a “no” Mom creates a forbidden fruit mindset for children later in life.
Here is a breakdown of everything I bought price wise!
