    My Flexible Dieting Aldi Grocery List (and a few recipes)

    At the beginning of 2018, I decided to sit down and take a look at my finances. Both a good and bad decision. I saw how much money I was spending on random grocery store trips throughout the month. I decided to end that by building a meal plan, shopping at Costco for bulk items, and switching back to shopping at Aldi. After a few shopping trips since the beginning of the year, I’ve finally narrowed in on my Aldi grocery list for two.

    Buffalo Turkey Burger Meal Prep

    It’s been a while since I’ve done a proper meal prep and I was wanting to spice things up. I’ve recently discovered buffalo sauce which is mighty tasty and also zero calories – win win. One my hacks to cooking awesome meal prep recipes is to include flavor, and these buffalo turkey burgers are just that. Spicy, full of flavor, while keeping my meal lean and high in protein. During November and December, I pretty much lived off of slow cooker chicken and rice because of how packed my schedule was. Now that I’m in a dieting phase, I want to switch up my recipes and have a variety to choose…

    Ground Chicken, Sweet Potato, Black Bean Skillet

    Last week I got back on my meal prep game and I went hard. I ended up making 12 meals that will last me over two work weeks because I tend to eat my meal preps for lunch at work and not so much for dinner. This ground chicken, sweet potato, black bean skillet is a revival of a recipe that I made last year when I first started IIFYM and I was experimenting with throwing together different whole foods to find new recipes. This year’s recipe is different because I’m now eating chicken so I instead of using Morningstar ground crumbles (which you can absolutely use if you’re a vegetarian…
