George Arkley buys all of her Mediterranean-diet essentials at Aldi in the UK
Marinated king prawns can be thrown right on the grill
Although they're on the higher side of Aldi's price range, the Tasty Catch's marinated king prawns are a great splurge for a barbecue.
Arkley recommended the garlic, chili, and coriander flavor.
Aldi's canned beans, veggies, and fish can't be beat
One of the cheapest ways to stick to the Mediterranean diet is to stock your pantry with plenty of canned products like beans, veggies, and fish.
Chickpeas, black beans, and butter beans can be added to veggie burgers, pastas, and curries, and canned tomatoes can be used in sauces and stews.
Tinned fish, which Arkley said tastes the same no matter the price, is also super affordable at Aldi.
Olive oil is an essential part of the Med diet
If you're following the Med diet, olive oil can really start eating away at your food budget since it's used in pretty much every dish.
Aldi stocks some affordable bottles, and Arkley also recommended the store's chili- and garlic-infused oils for extra flavor.

Military wife Amanda Turner drives 90 minutes with her toddler to shop at Aldi
Avocados are a staple in her house, and Aldi's are cheap
Turner uses avocados for everything from brownies to tacos.
Although they can be expensive at some grocers, Aldi sells nice-sized ones for $0.49.
There's a reason the 'Red Bag' chicken has a cult following
According to Turner, Aldi's Kirkwood breaded chicken-breast fillets (fondly referred to by fans as "Red Bag Chicken") are a great Chick-fil-A dupe.
She cooks them in an air fryer for 15 minutes or in the oven at 425 degrees Fahrenheit for 20 (switching to broil for the last couple of minutes).
In addition to getting a nice crunch, the fillets have a well-spiced pickle flavor.
If you're shopping at Aldi in the South, pick up a carton of Blue Bell ice cream
Although it's only regionally stocked in the South, Turner's whole family loves Blue Bell ice cream as a special treat.
A 64-ounce container of Blue Bell ice cream sells for $6.97 at Aldi, and it's even sometimes on sale for $5.97.

Aldi stocks plenty of fun dips that work well for snacking or party spreads. You can eat them with corn chips, black-bean chips, celery, or whatever else you have on hand.
Morin said her favorites are the jalapeño-artichoke dip and the cauliflower-Buffalo dip.
L'oven Fresh's everything bagel thins are great for breakfast
Morin said she prefers the L'oven Fresh bagel skinny over regular, more calorie-dense bagels because there's a better ratio of cream cheese to bread.
She uses them to fix up bagels with cream cheese, egg sandwiches, or avocado toast in the mornings.

Whitney Sandoval shops for kid-friendly and gluten-free products
Aldi's gluten-free bread knocks it out of the park
As a mom of three, Sandoval goes through plenty of sandwich bread.
She said she finds the slices of Aldi's liveGfree bread to be bigger than most gluten-free competitors, plus, it freezes well if you want to stock up.
Gluten-free pasta is another pantry staple
Although Sandoval said some brands of gluten-free pasta don't have the right texture, she enjoys the rice-and-quinoa noodles from Aldi's liveGfree brand.
She often pairs them Aldi's Simply Nature tomato-and-basil sauce, which she likes because it doesn't have added sugar.
Fruit snacks are perfect for moms on the go
Moms can likely relate to Sandoval's desire to keep a few packs of Black Forest's juicy-burst fruit snacks in her diaper bag at all times.
She said her kids particularly like the unique flavors in the pack, like green apple, and the juice inside each fruit snack.

As a solo shopper, Jailynn Taylor spends $50 at Aldi each week
Aldi's generic marshmallows-and-stars cereal might be better than its name-brand competitor
Taylor said she likes the taste of Aldi's sweet breakfast cereal better than the name-brand alternative — plus it's cheaper at $1.65 a box.
She recommended eating it for breakfast or for a snack.
Frozen fruit can be easier to buy when you live alone
When shopping for one, it can be difficult to get through fresh fruit before it gets bad.
Taylor recommended Aldi's large bags of frozen-fruit blends for smoothies and juice bowls.
The berry medley is generally available, but there's also a tasty tropical blend that's often sold out because of its popularity.
Premade salad mixes make meal times a little easier
Taylor suggested stocking up on Aldi's premade Caesar salad for snacks, side dishes, or lunches (if you add a protein like chicken).
Since the pack comes with lettuce, dressing, and croutons, it's super simple to throw together.

Lisa Tanner, a mom of 10, shops on a budget at Aldi
Queso is a great addition to Taco Tuesdays
When meal-planning each month, Tanner often buys everything she needs for Taco Tuesdays.
Casa Mamita's salsa con queso makes for a great dip for chips as a side dish to the meal.
It's not too spicy for picky eaters, according to Tanner, but it's still interesting enough for older kids.
Apples are a lifesaver when it's snack time
Tanner said her kids all love apples and could easily eat at least one a day.
Since she buys so much of the fruit, Aldi's big 3-pound bags come in handy, especially since they're less than $4.
Smaller packages of diapers make storage easier
With 12 people in a house, storage is always a concern for Tanner and her family. Instead of buying huge packages of bulk diapers, the mom suggested switching to Aldi's inexpensive smaller packs.
The number of diapers in each pack depends on the size, but a 34-pack of size-three diapers only costs her $3.99.
