I decided to record a quick little video of what I just bought at our local Aldi’s. If you haven’t shopped at one lately, or ever, you are missing out!! I can fill my cart and feed my family (and all of our crazy dietary needs) on a budget. In today’s haul I spent $127 and I am certain that it would have been close to $300 at our other store.
As I have shared a little, I have been having weird digestive issues and stomach pains on and off for a few months. Back in 2016 I felt very similar to this, had the same procedures done and somehow through diet, exercise and luck? I overcame my issues and haven’t really had any problems until this past October after our trip to NOLA.
Granted, I am now 38 and in a separate blog post I’ll go into more about this, but I am considered “Perimenopausal.” I know.
So, long story short, since my Endoscopy was totally fine (some stomach irritation)—Prevacid made me worse, and then my recent Ultrasound shows NO issues whatsoever, I feel as though I’m left to my own devices to figure out how to properly fuel my body and feel better.
Hence, about a week ago I’ve been trying to go Gluten and Dairy Free. Now, I am not allergic to Gluten nor to I have an intolerance to dairy, but the pains and gas pressure in my stomach along with feeling bloated, tired, irritable and just miserable for a bit have caused me to say enough is enough! In this haul I share some Gluten Free finds and also some great deals on things like Cage Free Organic Eggs.
My husband has Crohn’s and obviously my kids are little, so dinners are a bit of a 3 ring circus but I’m determined to help all of us live our best lives.
Do you have an Aldi favorite? I am obsessed with some of their GF chips and crackers dipped with hummus. I’m not a huge sweets person, but I got some to try! I’ll report back later.
In the video I mention Tiffany Beaston–here is a link for her You Tube video and the “Marry Me Chicken”. I just love her channel!
I have heard that changing your food habits can definitely help your gut issues. Even if you are not allergic to something. I am glad that you are making changes to help yourself out!
