Why is trying to find healthy cheap meal ideas so hard?
I have tried pinterest and every link I click is pay me to show you. If you pay me I will give you a shopping list and how to instructions. I just want cheap healthy meals to feed my family!
Eating clean and healthy can be difficult, not really sure why you would need to be charged for ideas. I'm not sure to what extent of healthy meals you are wanting to try, but you can check out several of my hubs to get a general idea of what you can feed your family.
I feel you. I've been trying to eat better and it's EXPENSIVE. I've found a few good family recipes on Campbell Soup Cans. Most are inexpensive and taste good. But, watch the fats and carbs. Replace white rice with brown rice or quinoa and use the leanest cuts of meat.Use the low-fat versions of the cream soups.
It's hard because the vast majority of people who live in the western side of the world have been brainwashed into thinking healthy is expensive. It may be in some parts of USA, but where I live a head of lettuce is $1.50. I can only think of a couple fruits and veggies that are expensive. Most are under $1 per serving. You want cheap healthy meals for your family? Then go to the produce department and buy yourself a some fresh fruits and veggies. Then if you eat meat go buy yourself some lean beef, chicken, and fish. When you have everything come home and plug those ingredients into a healthy recipe finder.
I have a family of 5. I live in the south east so some of my meals are less healthy than they should be, but it is very easy and affordable to cook healthy fresh meals for your family. When money is the issue grow what you need. Even on a patio you can grow a good bit of healthy fresh food.
If you can find things on,sale then you can get good prices otherwise you go to the store and spend $60 on only fruits and veggies. I will find a way to eat healthy but cheap. I know I can juts need to work at it.
Wow, there must be a huge price difference between here and there. A full week of that here is about $15. Growing is best, seeds are just a couple $ and make far more than most people can eat.
I would try Google for ideas. I can't believe the nerve of some sites that try to charge to give you ideas. At least they should give a warning in the description. But if you are unsuccessful you can try to find a book at the library. Most libraries have a pretty good section. Not eating healthy can be expensive especially if you want to go organic. We have a grocery store and the meat in the organic section can run up to $12.00 a pound. Yikes! Really is there any difference between organic beef compared to the beef from your local grocery store. I try to eat healthy and have several cookbooks in the low carb category. If I follow the menu plan offered to the T I would be spending 2-3 hundred dollars a week on groceries. That does not fit my budget. But I make it more affordable by sticking to the cheaper plans-sticking to boneless chicken breast and maybe treating myself to the more expensive menu's when I can afford it.
Find organic food is not easy it is very expensive. I also found I have the same problem and budget food does not assume that certainly. But between now and then try to Laufer it once or twice a week, along with Fish certainly
I have a FB group about Healthy lifestly changes. I post recipes in there. Low sodium, diabetic, low cholesterol, low sugars, and you don't have to pay. Lol it's called Healthy Lifestyle Change and Support. If you want to join us. Just say you are from hub pages.
