Who here is changing their eating patterns in the New Year?

If you’re changing your eating patterns this year to do keto or just generally eat fewer carbs, here are ten keto friendly chicken recipes to help jump start that resolution for you.

You can also use these ideas to swap out recipes on a more carb-heavy night in any of these meal plans — modify away to meet your own family’s eating patterns and needs. 🙂

Things to know about the ALDI meal plans

A couple of notes

  1. I try not to repeat main dish recipes more often than once a month, but you will see favorite easy recipes come up again in these weekly ALDI meal plans as the same meats and produce items come up again on sale. Part of the fun of meal planning lies in mixing old stand-bys with something new each week.
  2. If one or more of these recipes isn’t to your taste, or if you have other ingredients to use, you can adapt the recipes in this ALDI meal plan to your family’s preferences — or just use the ideas here to supplement your own meal planning. See: Pantry staples to stock up on and how to modify a meal plan for your family.

** Ad markets and dates

This week’s ALDI meal plan reflects prices from the current week’s ad (running 1/6-1/12 in Sunday ad markets, and 1/9-1/15 in Wednesday ad markets). Non-advertised prices were collected on 1/9/19 at my local store in the Chicago suburbs, but non-advertised prices and produce deals *may vary* by location & region. In either ad market, shop any time through Saturday and start cooking on Sunday 1/13/19.

I tried the fish tacos, BBQ chicken, and comforting kielbasa potato soup and they were all a hit. The soup in particular was my husbands favorite. These were just the first few recipes I tried of yours, but will definitely be trying more. I love Aldi and love how easy you've made it with the shopping lists and recipes. Thank you!

I just discovered your meal plans and I am in love! This makes it so much cheaper and convenient to feed my family. Thanks for looking out for us working moms who need to stay on budget and who like tasty food!

My Aldi weekly flyer in Florida is valid from January 9 - 15. I'm just checking to see which day I'll be getting the weekly free Aldi Meal Plan which I LOVE and am sharing with as many friends as possible. I am excited about reducing my "grocery" budget significantly this year and your email will definitely help my family.

I put out a new meal plan every Weds., generally by early afternoon. So glad that they are useful to you! :)

Ok I finally have to ask, haha! How on earth do you keep your mushrooms fresh enough to use at the end of the week? I've noticed that on lots of your meal plans the meals with mushrooms are planned on Thursday or Friday (just coincidence I'm sure) but I always have to move those meals up to earlier in the week because the mushrooms start looking slimy so fast! I dont mind rearranging at all but it makes me wonder if I'm doing something wrong when it comes to mushroom storage! 😅 Thanks again for these wonderful meal plans!!

LOL, yes, it's coincidence. Mine usually last a bit, but I do look for the containers that are the best shape and not browning at all when I buy them. Sorry that's happening! (If you make a midweek trip at all for anything else you could also grab mushrooms on that second trip, too...?)
