Most of the meals, dinners in particular, in The Lazy Budget Chef Household feature lots of vegetables, a starch, and meat as a condiment rather than the star of the show. Husband and I originally started cooking and shopping this way at our local international grocery stores to save money in our early days of marriage.
We accidentally turned into foodies who love trying new things. Yay!
The one thing we didn’t expect was for our food bill to go down and our health to improve. Sometimes we eat what our niece calls, “weird food” – lots of whole grains and such. Sometimes we make something quick, easy, and unglamorous like the Turkey and Sweet Potato Hash pictured below because we are on the go.
The one thing that does stay the same is that our meals are full of heart healthy ingredients and we have our families to thank for that.
