1. Peanut butter dark chocolate Perfect Bar
I’ve seen these bars on a few foodie Instagramers and I didn’t pull the trigger until I found them at Aldi. They are refrigerated bars with peanut butter, honey, and a protein mix. The straight peanut butter version is a bit too peanut buttery for me (I didn’t know that was possible, now we know), but I love the peanut butter and dark chocolate chip variety. The chocolate chips are just enough crunch and bitterness to balance the heavy peanut butter and sweet honey.
I’ve been eating them as a late morning snack when I have meetings that push my lunch late or if I had a hard workout in the a.m. and get super hungry before lunch.
2. Peanut butter Perfect Bar Kids
After I picked up the Perfect Bars for myself I walked a few steps and saw the cutest mini version for littles. Hayes has been digging the peanut butter Perfect Kids. And now I’m super curious to try out other snacks from their line up. Don’t these BARS look delicious?
3. Grass fed butter
I’ve been search for grass fed butter to add to my bulletproof coffee, but until this point, I’ve had to make a special trip and snag it at one of the larger grocery stores. Now Aldi has the grass fed butter so I can snag it on my normal trip—such a time saving win!
4. Veggies for your Eggs!
You know those nights when everything seems to be going wrong and taking 18 times longer than it should? Suddenly it’s 8:30pm and you’re like “oops, we haven’t eaten dinner”. Whenever Jeff and I are having a really busy night we default to breakfast for dinner. I found these flavorful egg mix ins that we throw into a big pan of scrambled eggs along with some chopped up spinach and viola, healthy fast as heck dinner.
I like the Rancheros one best.
5. Simply Nature’s applesauce packets
I love the Simply Nature line at Aldi. They are reliably simple and clean ingredients and, of course, not crazy expensive. I use to buy the Little Journey’s pouches, but I figured Hayes could try a toddler version now that she’s officially out of the baby babe stage, which from what I can tell basically means less pureed, more texture.
Best part about these for summer? They are an independent snack (she can do it all on her own), easy to travel with, and don’t make a huge mess, whether you’re in the car or at the sandy beach. Plus, there’s an apple banana version so I knew she’d be in.
Don’t worry, I’ll keep my weekly Aldi trips and find all of the new goodness for us to try out. Until Fall…
