    Get out your grill and prepare for a fun season of outdoor cooking with this Grilling ALDI Meal Plan! Every recipe included in this meal plan is BRAND NEW. Amazing grilling recipes PLUS amazing side dish recipes!


    For around $155 at ALDI, you will have enough food to prepare 20 meals on the grill, including side dishes/vegetables. We surveyed our loyal readers a couple of months ago about our ALDI Meal Plans, and here’s what we found:

    • You want a grilling meal plan ideal for the summer
    • You love freezer cooking but want it even easier
    • More fresh vegetables
    • Low carbohydrates
    • All new recipes

    It took A LOT of work, but this plan accomplishes all of that! Every meal has at least a pound of meat (beef, chicken, pork, salmon, turkey) and an awesome side dish. Oh, and the printable pack is AWESOME with this plan! Here’s why:

    • Instructions to prepare marinades and freeze them with the meat
    • Side dishes have their own pages that correspond to the main dish recipes
    • To ensure fresh vegetables, there are 2 smaller shopping trips after the initial trip to get more vegetables

    As always, this meal plan is designed around a family of four. So if your family is bigger or smaller, you will need to adjust the amounts accordingly.

    If you eat gluten-free, this is very easily adaptable. If you eat paleo, this is very easily adaptable. If you are a vegan… well, grilled meat is the main attraction here, so it won’t be as easily adapted (but I’m not opposed to creating a vegetarian meal plan in the future).

    This is sort of a hybrid freezer cooking plan… here’s why. Firstly, because this meal plan provides fresh vegetables for most of the sides, they aren’t conducive to freezing. Most of the main dishes will be prepped and then frozen, but you will still need to prepare an easy side dish when you cook the meal. Secondly, there are 2 fish meals (tilapia and salmon). Since the fish filets come frozen and vacuum-sealed, it would be best to thaw only when you are preparing the meal to cook.

    But still – this is a HUGE time saver. Now granted I am kinda fast in the kitchen, but it seriously only took me an hour to prepare 16 main dishes. And the kitchen wasn’t that bad afterward (at least that’s what Mark said).

    Here are the dishes:

    • Greek Marinaded Chicken with Greek Salad
    • Grilled Tilapia with Lemon with Red Potato Salad
    • Pineapple Turkey Burgers with Grilled Corn on the Cob
    • Marinated Chicken Legs and Thighs with Caprisi Salad
    • Grilled Chicken Fajitas with Summer Bean Salad
    • Honey Mustard Grilled Pork Loin with Grilled Sweet Potatoes
    • Teriyaki Steak with Grilled Pineapple with Grilled Green Beans
    • Marinated Beef Kabobs with Grilled Red Potatoes
    • Grilled Salmon with Grilled Summer Squash
    • Marinated London Broil with Grilled Potatoes with Peppers/Onion

    Note – if you get the printable pack (highly recommended) – you will get the recipe side dishes for FREE! I’ve never included bonus recipes like that before.

  • Uh yeah I can probably just figure out how to save money myself. If I’m trying to cut costs why would I pay $9 for a meal plan?

    • FYI: the meal plan breaks it down for you. I LOVE the 1 meal plan that I have tried. I have tried the Crockpot, Dump meal plan. You only buy the food that you need and then she breaks it down when you are chopping all of the vegetables, you put so much in each recipe bag. She REALLY makes the prep so simple! I had to come back and try another meal plan! I was SO pleased with the last one that I did!

  • Is this plan still available? I just tried adding it to my cart but got an error on the shop page. 🙁

  • Tried buying the Aldi Grilling meal plan and can’t get the order page to engage when I click on it. This is not the first time I have tried ordering and this has happened.
