A lot of people may assume that to change one's diet to avoid eating chemicals is a costly exercise. I would like to put your mind at rest. Making your own foods from scratch often means using less ingredients and using more fresh foods or basic pantry staples.
These items are usually a lot less than an item already pre-made in a packet. So who wants to pay extra just for a cup full of chemicals and fancy packaging - not me?
Our family is like most families, we budget for our grocery shop and try to keep our costs down as much as possible, so I am always keen to learn a new trick or two on how to do it. This week I heard an interview on the radio with a lady called Sandra Reynolds who has a food blog all about eating on a budget - a $120 a week budget!
Sounds interesting huh? Plus there are loads of great recipes to fill your meal planner up with! Check out her site at www.120dollarsfoodchallenge.com
Bec Taylor is a lover of all things quick, convenient and tasty. Her favorite foods are sloppy, cheesy and hopefully cooked in one pot as she hates doing the dishes!
