LIFE IS A JOURNEY, ARE YOU READY?

YOU CAN ACTUALLY SPEND LESS AND EAT VERY WELL


We can all still eat well and live well by saving with our food budget. A lot of people cannot cook to save their lives. You cannot save too much with water and electricity, those are essentials. You still have to eat of course, but learning some neat tricks in housekeeping can help you save a lot in the long run.

BUY WISELY TO SAVE ON YOUR FOOD BUDGET :
  • Buy tomatoes in bulk when they're in season or take advantage of an oversupply from your garden. Wash and thoroughly dry the tomatoes, place the whole tomatoes in plastic bags, then freeze them for use in sauces. When the tomatoes are thawed the skins will slip off easily. And if you find you don't have time to wait for them to thaw, just run them under hot water and this will help to peel off the skins.
  • Buy a canned ham; sliced and freeze for use as breakfast meat. Ham is cheaper than bacon and shrinks less when fried. 
  • Buy cheese according to the way in which you will use it. A chunk of cheese rathar than slices is better for shredding or when serving as hors d'oeuvres. However, individually wrapped slices last longer but are more expensive. If on a tight food budget, to get around this buy a large chunk of your favorite cheese, cut into slices and wrap each one individually yourself.
  • If buying tuna for use in casseroles, instead of buying a solid-pack white tuna, purchased the canned chunk tuna. It has the same flavor and has the same nutritional value but is lower in price.
  • Buying meats is tough when on a tight food budget. Substitute round or chuck roast for sirloin or rib roast. Sprinkle the roast with meat tenderizer; following package directions. Roast at 475 degress for 25 minutes to sear; reduce heat to 350 degrees and roast 45 minutes to an hour longer, or until meat thermometer registers rare or medium-rare. Slice thinly on the diagonal.
