With little time and resources, budget conscious shoppers have to pinch pennies now more than ever. Cooking at home does save money, and with time of the essence, what are some easy tips to create healthy meals on a budget?
The best way we save money is buying in bulk at club stores.
I save by baking in larger quantities. I put extra in the freezer so that the kids have something healthy to grab and go between activities. I’m saving by not buying pre-packaged snacks, and I feel better about what they’re eating, too!
One ideal that works for us. Instead of buying hamburger helpers, we get mac and cheese and add hamburger. Just as good. Lotz cheaper.
Nothing better than Home Made Bisquits with Gravy!!
Biscuits and gravy is a comfort food that doesn’t really have a season, does it? Just seems like we have more of an opportunity to make home made biscuits in the wintertime. My favorite biscuit recipe is the Baking Powder Biscuit recipe: http://www.clabbergirl.com/consumer/recipes/index.php?mode=recipe&recipe=46
Meatless meals will help with the budget, as will hearty soups & stews that allow you to use all the bits & pieces you may have. And cooking in bulk – which will result in a fully stocked freezer(which actually uses less energy). Look into creating your own dry mixes from scratch (pancakes, pie crust, cookies, cakes) and keep in jars for quick use. Make your own ‘wet’ mixes — pizza dough, pie crust, cookie, bread, cakes; which can be frozen.
