FINDING cheap healthy snacks at the grocery store could be challenging today – but a food expert has you covered.

Bobby revealed several cheap healthy finds from snacks to entree foods

He is known on social media as flavcity where he mostly makes videos of himself touring the grocery section of major retailers including WalmartTarget and Costco.

While price consideration is always a factor, Bobby prioritizes healthier ingredients in products, which he gets from his culinary background.

In a recent Instagram post to 1.7million followers, he shared some of his favorite nutritional finds from Aldi.

1. COCONUT CASHEW CRISPS

Oftentimes, you’ll find at the grocery store that snacks are loaded with sugar.

However, this isn’t the case when it comes to Coconut Cashew Crisps at Aldi.

A 3.5-ounce bag comes with less than one gram of sugar for each crisp.

The sweetener used is coconut sugar.

But best of all, the healthy treat only costs $2.99 at Bobby’s local Aldi.

He refers to that price as “dynamite.” 

As always keep in mind that prices can vary by location. 

Flavor options for Coconut Cashew Crisps are available in sea salt caramel, chocolate and vanilla. 

2. QUINOA & BROWN RICE

Not only is this a healthy option – but it will save you a ton of time in the kitchen too. 

Aldi’s organic Quinoa & Brown Rice is precooked and made with olive oil. 

“It’s a complex carbohydrate,” Bobby said. 

And the chef was giddy about the price here as well, costing only $2.39 for an 8.8-ounce bag.

The item is ready to be served in 90 seconds, according to the packaging label. 

3. GRASS-FED HOT DOGS

Hot dogs can be loaded with nitrates and other low-quality ingredients. 

But Aldi’s Simple Nature brand makes an organic 100 percent grass-fed option. 

Some ingredients in this product include sea salt, ground mustard and it is seasoned in macle, which he refers to as “best in class.” 

While traditional hot dogs will cost much less at Aldi, Bobby said that the price on Simple Nature’s organic grass-fed option is “fantastic.”

It costs $6.35 for a 10-ounce package.

4. KETO COOKIES 

Diabetic consumers are also in luck here – although all the ingredients aren’t ideal.

Benton’s cookies are made with cocoa butter, coconut oil, almond flour and sea salt.

The only red flag for Bobby is that Aldi’s private-label snack comes with natural flavors – but he’s still recommending the product for diabetics.

“There is no Keto alternative,” he said.

“So, it’s still a better for you choice.”

And Bobby loves that it only costs $2.99 for a three-ounce bag too.

5 GRASS-FED GROUND BEEF

Simply Nature also makes a 100 percent grass-fed option when it comes to ground beef.

Grass-fed means that it comes from a non-genetically modified organism (GMO) and a grain feed.

“This is nutritionally more sound,” Bobby said.”

And he urged his viewers, “you got to try it.”

Each pound at Aldi costs $5.29, or 70 cents more than traditional ground beef – but Bobby said it’s worth it given the nutritional profile.
