Sometimes the grocery budget runs a little dry by the end of the month. Maybe you’ve found yourself living on one income or a reduced income. Whatever the reason, sometimes we need to tighten the purse strings. Don't resign yourself to dull processed food! Here are some helpful tips for cooking on a budget.
1. Buy in bulk:
Grains and beans are the backbone of the budget-minded chef's dishes. When you buy these items in bulk, they're not only a healthier option--you know exactly what you're getting--but you'll also save money by buying only the amount you need.
2. Love those legumes:
Speaking of beans, legumes (beans, peas, and lentils) are inexpensive and incredibly healthy. They are low in fat, high in minerals, and a good source of protein, not to mention versatile. You can cook them on the stove in a pot, but you’ll probably have an easier time using pressure cookers. We have plenty to choose from.
3. Seek out seasoning:
Some of the best inexpensive recipes make the most of seasonings. Dishes such as chili, black beans and rice, and chana masala will fill your home with the rich fragrance of their spices. Browse our selection of spices and you’ll see that your only limitation is your imagination.
With a little know-how, the right tools, and a little creativity, you can create culinary masterpieces that cost you less than a dollar per serving.Contact us to see how we can help you stretch your food dollars.
