We’ve been sampling some of the organic foods at ALDI lately, as we’ve been educating ourselves about the way some of our food is produced in the US – and it’s downright scary. We’re not onboard with an all-organic diet yet, simply because we cannot afford it, but so far we’ve been happy with the quality and prices of ALDI organic foods, so it is a good start for us.
We do grow some of our own produce, but it is not much as we have a small city garden.
I was also excited to see that ALDI had eggplant in the store, and I ended up picking one up. We rarely eat eggplant, because I try to keep all of us on an anti inflammatory diet (which excludes tomato and eggplant) due to the ashtma we deal with in the FIF family. However, I also believe in a balanced diet, and once in a while we still include these items.
One negative side of today’s shopping trip at ALDI was the salmon. I was excited to pick up salmon for our guys. But when I checked the salmon (while standing in line and waiting), I discovered that the wild salmon was from China. China! I would rather pick up more expensive salmon elsewhere, if it is US caught.
