Now that Freestyle is here, the first thing I noticed was this is going to get pricey. This is likely to be the first of many posts on this topic as I’m a woman on a B-U-D-G-E-T.
I headed for our local Aldi and tried to find Freestyle (and WW in general) items that I could incorporate. The prices below are here in my area, but prices will vary depending on where you are in the country. Here are Aldi’s top 10 Weight Watchers finds:
- Beans of all kinds! Priced at $.55 per can (or $.89 if you want to go organic) you can use these to make a 0-point chili or top on a salad.
- Fit & Active Chicken Noodle Soup. $1.29 per can, this is a delicious lunch go-to in my house. Just 1 point for this filling meal.
- Turkey Pepperoni. $2.19 and you get 17 slices for 2 points. Can you say “HELLO PIZZA!”
- Tuna. $.64 per can and totally free in points. I use mine with a little light mayo and put it on top of crackers when I need a little protein throughout the day. It’s also fabulous with a little lemon and pepper on top of a salad or on nachos.
- Happy Farms Spreadable Cheese Wedges. $1.29 for 6 wedges (which is phenomenal given that in other grocery stores they’re at least double that price.) These nummies are 1 point for one wedge (or 3 points for 2 wedges).
- Sliced turkey. $2.99 for the container. It has about 12-15 slices and has 0 points!
- Eggs. $.59 for 12. This really needs no explanation!
- Fat Free Plain Yogurt (and Greek Yogurt). $1.89-$3.49 for 32 ounces.
- Seafood for days! Salmon, shrimp, ahi tuna, tilapia, crab. Priced way better than your mainstream grocery store and packaged individually to make meal planning a breeze.
- Frozen peas and corn. $.89 per bag. Stay away from the canned stuff. Frozen veggies are better for you and taste much fresher.
