WW on an Aldi Budget – Top 10 Finds

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:

Top Aldi Finds for Weight Watchers

  • 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.
