Specials, Budget Meals

Now more than ever we all need a few budget meal recipes

With everything going on in the world at the moment, we all wonder if we will still have a salary at the end of the month to buy food with and if we will be able to feed our families all the nutrients they need.

In these hard times, we must think smart, budget and Plan ahead. We must spend our money wisely and on healthy food. Plan ahead – you don’t want to run to the shops every day, just because you forgot something. Planning ahead means to sit down and to think what meals you and your family will eat this week and make a grocery list to make sure you don’t forget items. You must think of what ingredients you can use in more than one meal.

Think of easy meals that are fast to make and won’t leave you broke at the end of the week.

For example, you make an oven-roasted chicken, and you still have some leftovers the next day, and you don’t know what to do with it. Use the leftovers in a chicken salad. One meal becomes two meals. That’s smart planning!

We found this amazing chicken salad, and we think you must give it a try. Warm and hearty, this chicken salad is perfect for our current in-between weather.
