Whether you are hanging out with that special someone or planning a Galentine’s celebration, more and more people are staying in for Valentine’s Day to beat the crowds and save money. ALDI is making it easy for you to do just that! They truly have everything you need to impress your date and your friends. From appetizers and all the ingredients for a cheese and charcuterie board to delicious wine and chocolate to make this lovely holiday even more special (and affordable)!
Cheese might be this dietitian’s favorite food, and an epic charcuterie board is a must for me anytime I’m entertaining! ALDI has a wide selection of award-winning cheeses, like the creamy Emporium Selection Goat Cheese Logs available in a variety of flavors, all of which will delight your guests. And what’s a charcuterie board without some cured meats? ALDI also offers award-winning meats, including Appleton Farms Gourmet Deli Selection and Appleton Farms Prosciutto to elevate your pairings.
Plus, ALDI was the first grocery retailer to offer its own line of gluten-free products, liveGfree, which features more than 50 gluten-free products, including top-selling gluten-free pretzels, brown rice crisps, chewy bars and crackers, perfect for an epic charcuterie board. One of my personal favorite liveGfree products that I love to add to my spread are the Gluten Free Sea Salt Multiseed Crackers! The entire line earned the Good Housekeeping Seal of Approval last year.
Now, for the main dish, ALDI has tons of recipes to choose from that are sure to impress! What I really love is that they have a wide variety of better-for-you products — from organic produce and fresh meat to fresh, never-frozen fish and even an entire line of plant-based, vegan and vegetarian options under the Earth Grown brand — all at unbeatable prices. Two of my personal favorite entrée dishes are seafood; the Maple Walnut Crusted Sockeye Salmon and the Brown Butter Scallops! Both are sure to make your mouth water! And of course, as a registered dietitian, I’m all about pairing these dishes with veggies! I love cauliflower everything so their Cauliflower “Rice” with Caramelized Onions and Roasted Garlic is a must for me! Another top favorite of mine are the Roasted Sweet Potatoes with Cilantro Pistachio Pesto! Flavorful and colorful all in one!
Valentine’s Day isn’t complete without some wine and chocolate! ALDI has a variety of award-winning wines to choose from, most of which are under $10! Whether you are baking a dessert or serving a dessert board, these melt-in-your-mouth options are the perfect way to sweeten up Valentine’s Day this year!
