4 tomatoes πŸ…

1 onion

Diced butternut squash

Salt

Pepper

Garlic

Parmesan

Italian seasoning

Ababo seasoning

Oranges 🍊

Redwine Vinager

Cranberries

Meal 1:

I sliced 2 of each veggie , drizzled them with red wine vinegar, salt, black pepper, and garlic.

Baked them in the oven for 20 min at 350Β°F on the top wraxk of your oven

Under the veggies I also baked the chicken for 30 minutes.

I sliced two chicken breast into strips, sprinkled them with Mrs. Dash original seasoning and drizzled olive oil on them

I surved that with a side of cole slaw which is just chopped up cabbage,carrots,celary, mixed with Cole slaw dressing and topped with dried cranberries.

Meal 2

While meal 1 was cooking I diced up the rest of the veggies and chicken along with one onion

I cooked the chicken first in my cast iron pan with a little olive oil and ababo seasoning.

Then on the day eaten I added in the vegetables with a little bit of Italian seasoning.

*don’t store these already combined and cooked.. Itll be gross

When that was finished I made angel hair pasta.

Get a rabid boil of water and a little milk.

Add pasta until cooked

Drain

Sprinkle with with garlic and Parmesan cheese .

Then top them the veggies and chicken

Surved with diced butternut squash drizzled with honey,oranges,and raspberry-leaf tea to drink.

Storing

Since this was just for two day prep everything went in my Anchor containors individually and in the fridge, then when ate heated up quick in the skillet or oven.

FRUGALLY Healthy On A Budget : Challenge Accepted.

Hey guys,

So time and time again I have heard “I can nor afford to eat healthy. ”

I took that as a challenge and the challenge was excepted! I am going to PROVE you can buy healthy foods and not break the bank.

I went to our most costly grocery store in our area and shopped, just for you spending $59.13 of my budget and spent it just in healthy foods.

Here is the list. ( not all is shown in the video below, my fualt , sorry)

Apple Cranberry Juice

2 1/2 gal Whole milk

2 blocks of cheese πŸ§€

1 16 slice american slice cheese πŸ§€

1 16 ozCottage cheese

2 cans of green beans

Can of mixed vegetables

Can of Black beans

Can of Kidney Beans

4 bags multi grain and whole grain bagels

1 head of Lettuce

1 bag Cole slaw

1 jar Cole slaw dressing

1 Cucumber

10 ears of corn on the cob 🌽

2 lb Grapes πŸ‡

3lb Apples 🍎

2.54 lb of Bananas 🍌

3lbs of cherries πŸ’

2 lb ( 2) Big Beef Tomatoes πŸ…

2 fresh baked Italian loaf bread 🍞

Natural polish sausage

2 6pack all natural drum sticks

2 pachages of cured diced ham

2 bags of frozen broccoli

 

So I am all about being 100% honest

when I said in the video I spent a little more because I have a family of 3..and shopped for 3-4 weeks… Here is what I meant.

I bought the quick junk food- 6 frozen πŸ•Pizza , 2 banquet meals, 4 snack boxes ofpizza rolls, and waffles…for our days I know we will not be getting home + diapers, allergie pills, paper plates.

Making my total grocery bill

Why? Because… honestly …I do not feel like heating up my house to meal prep πŸ˜‚

I’ll save that for the 20Β° below freezing temperatures , not the OMG it’s 82Β° πŸ”₯ in the UP of Michigan days.

Anyways my tips are

1. Keep inventory of your kitchen

2. Make your grocery list according to the adds

3. Use coupons, savings cards, and apps that will help ger your money back.

4. Keep a well stocked pantry with staples

5. Pre cook meats and break them up into meals, cutting and sectioning them

6. Remember less is more, but fill your plate with mostly vegetables.

Know your portion sizes for meats, produce, and dairy.

Have a great week all,

Shanna
