I'm a label reader, not a brand person. Aldi does have a lot of healthy less expensive choices.

I'm a big fan of FAGE and Chobani Greek yogurts.
And I like Cascadia Farms brand cereals. I only buy them when they are on sale. they're a little pricey.

Blue menu. PC makes some great products that are low in sodium, added sugar and perservatives. But I try to buy mostly fresh produce and meats. I also buy Bob's Red Mill but I'm not a big fan of Kashi, although their food tastes wonderful... it's usually high in sugar and other ingredients I'm not keen on. I've had a box of their granola bars in my pantry for months now and it's still more than half full. I prefer to make my own granola or granola bars.
"Toning" is marketing muscles to women who are afraid if they pick up a barbell, they'll leave the gym looking like She-Hulk. It doesn't happen, what does happen is you get results. Lifting Barbie weights does nothing but waste time.

Kashi, definitely. So many options, and all have multiple grains in them.

I really like the greek yogurt; the chobani. And although its not a brand, I love making smoothies in the morning now too. I'd never done that before up until last year. It fills you up and you can add in many different fruits to make it flavorful!
