For many of us, 2018 was a doozy, but we here at Brit + Co are ready to hit refresh in 2019! Follow our Hit Refresh series through January and February for new ideas, hacks, and skills that will help you achieve (and maintain!) those New Year’s resolutions.
We are constantly blown away with the groceries we discover at Aldi
, including its monthly aisle of Aldi Finds
and its incredible selection of affordable wine
. But as we clean up our diet in 2019, we're shopping Aldi for the impressive amount of vegetarian foods that will make staying healthy so much easier. Here's a taste.
Friendly Farms Tilts Greek Yogurt Key Lime Crunch ($1): The combination of the crunchy topping and key lime yogurt really tastes like you're biting into a slice of key lime pie, minus the guilt.
Fit & Active Vitality Cereal Vanilla Almond or Red Berries ($2): If you're a fan of Special K cereal, then you're going to love Fit & Active. Choose from crunchy Vanilla Almond or sweet Red Berries flavors. With just 150 calories a serving and no high fructose corn syrup, these cereals make eating breakfast before dashing out the door NBD.
LiveGfree Multiseed Rosemary and Olive Crackers ($2): You can't even tell these delicious crackers are gluten-free. Impress your friends at your next wine and cheese gathering with these tasty snacks.
LiveGfree Gluten-Free Pretzel Sticks ($2): We can't get enough of these pretzel sticks. Dip them in hummus, or enjoy them on their own. You won't be able to tell they're made out of corn, potato, and rice flours instead of the wheat that you're used to.
Earth Grown Vegan Mozzarella Style Shreds ($3): This vegan, gluten-free, cholesterol-free, shredded mozzarella comes close to the real thing. It melts beautifully and has a rich, cheesy, and creamy flavor ideal for a homemade vegan pizza night.
liveGfree Gluten-Free Baked Chewy Bars ($3): Choose from Caramel Apple, Coco Loco, or Very Berry. Each bar has only 7 grams of sugar, so you can satisfy a sweet tooth without ruining your diet plan.
Earth Grown Plain Vegan Cream Cheese Style Spread ($3): This spreads like real cream cheese and has only 90 calories per serving. While it might not taste exactly like real cream cheese (it's less cheesy and salty), you can’t beat the price or the fact that it has no preservatives or cholesterol. We suggest mixing in some fresh herbs like dill or chives to add a boost of flavor.
Season's Choice Mediterranean Quinoa ($3): This quinoa acts as a solid lunch or dinner when you have zero time. Just heat it on the stove top or in the microwave. In minutes you'll enjoy a Mediterranean blend of spinach, garbanzo beans, onions, red peppers, and perfectly cooked quinoa. We like to put an egg on it for extra protein.
Earth Grown Meatless Meatballs ($4): These zesty Italian meatballs are made with soy protein, onion, garlic, basil, and herbs. Heat them up and serve with marinara sauce over zoodles (yes, Aldi also now has zoodles) or a pasta of your choice for a quick and easy vegan dinner.
SimplyNature Seedtastic 21 Whole Grain Bread ($4): Add some extra nutrients to your avocado toast with this non-GMO, organic bread that's packed with 21 whole grains and seeds.
