Large Family ALDI Trim Healthy Mama Grocery Haul | Plus, One Week Large Family Meal Plan!

I finally got it up, friends! Here’s my full Large Family ALDI Trim Healthy Mama Grocery Haul | Plus, One Week Large Family Meal Plan on YouTube!

Below you’ll find the entire cost breakdown. My total came in at $200.59 which actually includes the 4th package of chicken I never received (a double-charge). Even still that breaks down to $22.28 per family member for the entire week! If you’re new here, we’re a growing family of nine from 6-foot tall teenage boys down to toddlers plus my 6 foot 6 hubby and my hormonal pregnant self who also homeschools and works from home. This means we have all our meals and snacks at home for the most part. So long story short, that’s a lot of food!

One Week Large Family Meal Plan

Large Family Breakfast

Rotating the following

  • Omelets/Toast
  • Scrambled Eggs/Fruit
  • Fruit/Smoothies
  • Oatmeal/Toast 

Large Family Lunches

There are two main lunch plans for this week. The first plan is to eat up any dinner leftovers from the night before. We’ll also have a “lunch buffet” where we’ll bring out all available fruits and vegetables and quick items so each family member can make their own healthy lunch plate.  

Large Family Lunch Ideas

For our “lunch buffet” we had blueberries, blackberries, oranges, cucumbers, avocado, sliced green pepper, sliced broccoli, cottage cheese, lettuce (left from prior grocery haul), and tuna salad (couple cans of tuna left from prior grocery haul), and ranch to dip as needed. 

 

Large Family Dinners

All dinners served with lots of side veggies 🙂 

Chicken and Brown Rice Bake Recipe ~ Large Family Style!

Slow Cooker Chicken Broccoli Alfredo Recipe – This is always a winner.

Foil Packet Burgers – add cheese, mushrooms, onions, whatever you’d like! Lots of flexibility with this one. 

Slow Cooker Italian Chicken – this also works well with a pork roast. 

Leftover Night – I’m sure we’ll have one!

Large Family Weekend Chili – for the weekend I’ll do a large stock pot full of chili and homemade cornbread. You can see how our weekend chili turned out here

Large Family Snacks

Large Family Smoothies

From Instagram, “Large family style smoothie aftermath.”

  • Smoothies We do lots of different smoothies around here. Here’s how I do homemade yogurt in the slow cooker. A few ladies have asked me how we use up a gallon of yogurt at a time. It’s perfect for smoothies! On my recent smoothie day, I didn’t have any made, but we love using it up quickly when we do. 🙂 
  • 30+ lbs of Bananas! Of course, bananas (Laugh at this banana humor!)
  • 8 lbs of Navel Oranges 
  • Cucumber Slices 
  • Hard Boiled Eggs We’ll boil up a dozen or two just for a quick protein packed snacks. 
  • Broccoli/Cauliflower/Green Peppers – all of which will be sliced and ready to go in the refrigerator. 
  • Cottage Cheese
