10 Healthy Dinners All Items Purchased at ALDI (sweetandsavoryfood.com)

Meal planning is kinda of my closet ninja in hiding.  When I'm super focused and really good at it, it can kick anyone's butt to the curb.  When I'm off my game, I'm just like any other mom scrambling during the witching hours {4:00 to 6:00 p.m.} hoping the tears and screaming can be kept to a minimum.

Here's the thing.

Life gets crazy and plans get put on the back burner at times.  This includes dinner and that is okay. No one ever said being a mom and feeding your household was going to be easy, but I will tell you this, when I take a moment to plan, even if it is just 10 minutes on a Sunday evening before the week starts, my weeks goes a whole lot better.

And when I take the extra effort and plan HEALTHY dinners for my family, ones that I don't cringe at, it makes my week go fantastic.

You all know I've been an ALDI grocery shopper for many years now.  The husband visited once and declared we had to go back and we've been visiting there ever since.  Their selection continues to grow and amaze me.  What is great about these 10 Healthy Dinners is that I've highlighted many unknown healthy products that ALDI's carries.

Coconut Oil?  Yep.

Organic Fresh Spinach?  Got it.

Balsamic Vinegar?  They have that too.

These 10 Healthy Dinners are also cost effective.  Each family has a food budget.  It varies from family to family, but nothing is worse than coming out of the grocery store having spent WAY more than you wanted to.  This is usually due to not planning, grabbing whatever catches the eye and not being focused for the week ahead.

How about we change that?

Below I have detailed 10 Healthy Dinners, with their costs included.  Pick your favorites.  Or give them all a try!  You can easily eat happily for two straight weeks on this meal plan {leaving a few days for eating out, leftovers or a simple sandwich night}.

Please note:  I shopped at my local eastern Iowa ALDI's store.  Prices and availability can vary from store to store.  Also, you will notice one grocery item may be purchased for multiple meals.  For example: a large bag of chicken breasts is used for multiple meals, as are staple ingredients such as olive oil, eggs, cheese, etc.  Seeing this, you'll notice some meals are more expensive than others, due to that main ingredient being priced out in one, but not in the other.  Please click on each recipe title for the full recipe and directions.
