Feel Good Food on the Go {With an ALDI Giveaway!}

A round-up of my favorite feel good foods from ALDI with snack ideas featuring organic and natural products like nuts, cheeses, fruits, chia pudding and more.

This post is sponsored by ALDI. Be sure to read to the end for a gift certificate giveaway!

I think I can safely say that most of us around here are living an “on-the-go” lifestyle. Whether you’re a student facing long days on campus, a busy mom with little time to make meals for yourself, a professional balancing work, working out and life outside of the office or a fellow fitness professional, most of us are eating at least one meal a day and snacks on the go.

I firmly believe that a big part of feeling your best is about eating foods that make you feel good. As I’ve discussed before on my blog, it’s usually easier to make good, nutritious food choices at home than it is when you’re at school, work, out running errands or traveling. One of the places that I look to for budget-friendly feel good finds is ALDI. They offer a variety of both core products and Special Buys that meet my feel good food standards. The very BEST news is that ALDI recently removed all certified synthetic colors, partially hydrogenated oils and added MSG from all ALDI-exclusive foods.


Currently you can find all sorts of Special Buys at ALDI for many of these feel good foods. When I visited my local ALDI I found everything from goji berries to steel cut oats to chia superfruit squeezables in the Special Buys as well as tons of other everyday core items like coconut oil, all kinds of nuts at incredible prices, huge bags of organic kale and other greens, ALL the avocados, grass-fed beef, natural nut butters and more. And many are organic and/or gluten-free! It seems like every time I visit ALDI there are more and more healthier and organic options!

Today I’m sharing some of my favorite feel good “on-the-go” foods for breakfast, pre- or post-gym snacking, car meals, desk staples and emergency snacks. Everything you see here can be found at your local ALDI. Be sure to read to the end for a gift certificate giveaway.



Chia pudding is a simple breakfast that you can make the night before to enjoy post-workout or once you get to your desk. I admit that I wasn’t a fan until my recent Whole30 when I gave it another go.


Creamy coconut milk or homemade almond milk along with mashed banana for natural sweetness makes all the difference here! Get creative with your toppings. Check out my recipe in this post.


Smoothies! (You totally saw that coming, right?) They are so easy to throw in the blender before you walk out the door and easy to drink in the car during commutes to work.


One of my all-time favorite smoothie combinations is a cup of frozen berries, a frozen banana, a spoonful of peanut or almond butter (or a scoop of protein powder…or both!), almond milk, plain Greek yogurt, a date if you want some extra sweetness and spinach if you want to add some green. Easy, filling and delicious! I have a whole page dedicated to smoothies so be sure to check it out for inspiration.



Dried fruit and nuts.


These freeze-dried apples are great and the only ingredient is apples! And you can never go wrong with dates and almonds. Mix and match nuts and dried fruits to meet your preference but I highly encourage you to read labels and watch out for added sugar in the fruit! I love dates because they’re sweet and delicious just how they are. Nature’s candy, right?


If you don’t have time or forget to make your own chia pudding, try the ready-made SimplyNature Organic Chia Strawberry Banana Superfruit Squeezies, available at ALDI. The ingredients list is super clean and they have only 10 grams of sugar (with none of it coming from added sugar…just from the fruit).


They also have SimplyNature Organic Chia Blackberry Superfruit Squeezies as well as SimplyNature Kids Organic Applesauce and miscellaneous fruit squeezies.



I love fresh figs and cheese. This combo of Turkish figs and cranberry white cheddar is perfect.


Crackers (love these sea salt pita crackers) along with canned tuna (or chicken if you are eating this in an office environment) mixed with guacamole or mashed avocado.


Guac or mashed avocados are one of my favorite mayo replacements in chicken or tuna salad. Also good with a dollop of plain Greek yogurt, some chopped nuts and a dash of hot sauce but none of that is necessary!



I almost squealed in delight when I spotted La Croix at ALDI. We’re lucky if a case lasts two days in our house.


There’s something about adding bubbles to your water that makes it feel much more refreshing. These are great for an afternoon pick-me-up or for post-workout hydration.

Want to check out these ALDI products for yourself? I’m giving away a $50 gift certificate to one reader. If you’d like to be entered for a chance to win, leave a comment telling me whatΒ  your “Feel Good Foods” are. Giveaway ends Wednesday, February 3 at midnight EST. U.S. readers only. One entry per person.

Stay in the know about all things ALDI. I really love how they’re always bringing in new products and Special Buys! Find them on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and Pinterest and be sure to follow their blog!

    I need to find you ALDI! I live in Charlotte but many of these products haven’t made their way to mine yet (Old Pineville Rd. off of Tyvola Rd). I love Aldi! My comfort foods/on the go foods are pretty much everything on your list. I like making my own trail mix. Also, my ALDI has rice pudding that’s in a single serve container (it’s more like 2 servings) for .99 called “senor rico.” It’s really good!

    My go-to “feel good foods” are the always classic banana and natural peanut butter combo or hummus (love the super spicy ALDI flavor) with carrots/crackers (just tried ALDI rosemary/olive oil rice crackers and they were great). I shopped at ALDI when I studied abroad in Australia and really loved it – saved me so much money! We recently got an ALDI near my workplace in Richmond, VA and I am so excited to be able to shop there again!

    Love Aldi’s! They are my go-to place for fresh fruit. My two favorite feel good foods are brown rice cakes with almond butter and overnight oats. I use a cup of dried oats, a cup of almond milk or coconut water, half of a banana, a handful of spinach and a dash of chia seeds. You can sprinkle cinnamon on top in the morning before stirring for extra flavor, but it’s good without it!

    Love Aldi’s! It is my go-to place for fresh fruit. My two feel good foods are a snack I love having whether I’m on-the-go or even pre-workout and overnight oatmeal. Brown rice cakes with peanut butter satisfy any craving I’m having! Overnight oatmeal is so delicious and takes no more than 5 minutes to make before putting it in the fridge for the night. I use a cup of dried oats, a cup of almond milk or coconut water, half of a banana, a handful of spinach and a dash of chia seeds. You can add a sprinkle of cinnamon on top before mixing for some extra flavor! If I am having it for post-workout, I will add some protein in there. So, so good!
