✔️Plan your meals
This is the most basic strategy, but so essential. Start by planning your meals weekly, then work up to bi-weekly.
Save time and money by planning ahead, cutting out last-minute grocery runs, last-minute purchases, and all that time spent wondering what to cook for dinner tonight.
✔️Choose your own adventure
Try at least one new recipe every week. This keeps spark and variety in your meals, letting your small-budget intake feel fancy.
This helps keep cooking fun and is a great idea for all ages. Have your partner, roommate, or child pick new countries or regions, or just do it for yourself.
✔️Splurge on eating in, not out
Splurge on grocery items, not on eating out. This goes hand-in-hand with choosing your own adventure in the kitchen. With better-quality options at home, you'll be more likely to cook at home rather than going out for dinner.
Stick with simple staples, whole foods (nix the processed), and fresh produce for a basic meal that feels decadent. Our staples are chicken, fish, rice, grains, noodles, and greens. Start with greens and add chicken, pasta, nuts, dried fruit, and other vegetables for a fancy salad, or serve small portions of meat and starch with fresh veggies, fruit, and cheese. Rub white meat or seafood with lemon juice, fresh garlic, and cracked pepper for a favorite seasoning that's cheap but feels fancy.
✔️Process your own food
Instead of buying processed foods, make your own versions of sometimes expensive staples like cereal. Homemade salad dressing is another staple that is simple, luxurious, and cheap, as it uses ingredients you already have in your pantry. Try homemade granola with milk or yogurt and fresh or frozen fruit for a breakfast that's equal parts filling, beautiful, and easy.
✔️Pick your sweets wisely
Swap prepackaged baked goods with high-quality chocolate, naturally sweet fruit smoothies, and simple ice cream (check the ingredients for ice creams that are mostly milk, cream, and sugar). High-quality desserts go a long way: Cut out excessive and empty carbs and go for options that are pure but still feed the cravings. Besides, it's an accepted scientific fact that dark chocolate is good for you. It's right up there in my food pyramid next to water, feta cheese, and fresh peaches.
