TASTY AND NUTRITIOUS MEALS ON A BUDGET

Good news: Your shopping list doesn’t have to break your weekly budget anymore, nor do you have to sacrifice the quality or taste of your meals. With a few little tricks, you can make delicious, nutritious and budget-friendly meals. Just use familiar ingredients that don’t cost much, are in season, and help you make flavorful good-for-you meals.

GRAINS

Take the typical rice and beans in new directions. Rather than just combining them, make two delicious and nutritious dishes with seasonal vegetables and ingredients already in your kitchen. The Sizzling Portobello Mexican Rice has the flavors your family loves, including corn and cilantro, and is as nutritious as it is hearty. Delight your family with a nutritious Chickpea Pilaf, a versatile dish for any time of the year.

CHICKEN

Chicken is one of those go-to ingredients when preparing meals on a budget. When you want a complete and tasty meal, chicken saves the day. With a couple of boneless chicken breasts, tomatoes, lime juice and a few more ingredients already in your kitchen, you can make some delicious Chicken Tacos with Pico de Gallo. Don’t forget to serve with a mixed green salad. The best part is that your family will have fun making their own tacos!

BEVERAGE

No matter which dishes you choose, your meal won’t be complete without a delicious and refreshing drink. Just turn to your cupboards to make a yummy Basil Mojito Iced Tea that everyone will enjoy, especially during the warm summer months.
