Aldi Favorites and Weekly Salad Lunch

I sure do post a lot about food! :)  I strive to find a balance of eating healthy, but also enjoying things that may not be so healthy, doing it all in moderation.  I post about food because I want to give others ideas on how to incorporate the balance into their lives as well.  I also like to eat healthy on a budget.  One small way I accomplish this is shopping at Aldi.  I have some definite favorite products that I buy regularly from Aldi.

Here are few of my favorite products from Aldi:
1.  Fit & Active Liquid Egg Whites - for a quick egg sandwich on the Orowheat Sandwich Thin.
2.  Salmon Burgers - I sprinkle a little original Ms. Dash seasoning and heat it up with a little olive oil on the stovetop.
3.  Fit & Active Light Honey Dijon Mustard dressing - love this with the salmon burgers! I was sad, they didn't have this dressing for a while, so I stocked up this time!

And, here is that salmon burger and honey dijon dressing in my weekly salad; accompanied by sweet red, yellow and orange peppers, sugar snap peas, and grape tomatoes, sprinkled with sesame seeds on a bed of baby spinach.

Bon appetit!
