Aldi has a bag of Edamame for a few bucks. Boil it for 3 minutes, put some salt an/or whatever else you want on it… lemon, pepper, soy sauce… and you have an anti-inflammatory, cholesterol-busting meal in a few minutes.  Way easier than popping chicken nuggets or a pizza in the oven.

Other super-easy Aldi finds… they typically have some type of veggie burger with a base of quinoa, kale or beans instead of meat.  This means your burger could have fiber instead of fat and reduced calories for the same volume, but be just as easy to prepare.  There are also bags of grains, beans, and veggies that make a meal in minutes.  If beans, grains, and veggies do NOT sound appetizing to you right now, do not despair.  It may take a few weeks to get your palate more used to veggies and less used to junk food.  In fact, it normally takes about two weeks.  img_3780
