I've had the LAST of it.
Why oh why does healthy eating HAVE to be so expensive?
It really doesnt have to be. But to magically go to the store and buy all the things that are in the typical meal planner is FLIPPIN expensive.
Today we spent $200 on a weeks worth of food.
Thats is ABSURD.
$100 of that was strictly in produce and who knows if that will last the rest of the week!
After this attempt of sticking to recipe book like meals , I've decided to already DITCH that. I just had to give it a try.
Also when I came home and looked through my cabinets I made another decision to CLEAR IT ALL OUT. Now it would be easy to just throw it all out. But I will go through and make a healthy meal from all remaining random canned food.
This is a huge step people. Step to healthier choices and healthier living. This mom is going to break it down from scratch, find delicious food, INEXPENSIVE food and last and most important KID FRIENDLY.
This is key. We are all always trying to "lose" weight. Or just be "healthy". It should be EASY and CHEAP. Yep, I said it CHEAP.
Living in a one income family (even though Im trying to work my way up through the ranks) we live on a BUDGET. So do MANY of us. I know some of us try, or we just know our limits. I get so many questions on "healthy snacks" and "easy lunches". So now Im going to take the time to find the answers.
Now Im not a vegan, nor am I all "organic".
Im EASY, CHEAP and SUPER EASY. ( sounds a little sleezy huh? )
Whatever, I'm one of those moms that gets home from a crazy day and I'm to exhausted to cook anything let alone take the time to clean up the BOMB that blows up in my kitchen after making dinner.
So here I go on my CONQUEST for you , for me , for the sake of my family , oh and can I say SANITY to be FIT, HEALTHY, HAPPY and NOT BROKE.
Wish me luck, who knows where this journey will take me. Who I will meet and want nasty food I might encounter.
All feedback and secret recipes are GREATLY appreciated.
