Another of the grocery-saving strategies I shared with you in my March vlog series was to serve meatless meals. We do this for health reasons as well as to save money. By incorporating beans, quinoa, and other proteins into your meals, you're reducing fat while getting your protein. When I do my weekly meal plan, I aim for 2-3 meatless meals each week. I find great inspiration and recipes from Midnight Maniac's Meatless Mondays recipe linky and sites like Meatless Monday.
Meatless Monday Broccoli Pie (I'll post the recipe Friday), salad, biscuits
Tuesday Turkey Tacos (ground turkey cost less than ground beef this week), fixings, black beans, corn
Wednesday Chicken Fingers (coated in crushed Corn Chex & Parm Cheese to be gluten-free), homemade fries, green beans
Thursday Spinach Lasagna (I'm eating out so I'm making gluten lasagna for the fam), salad
Friday & Saturday Eating with friends!
We're actually heading out of town this weekend, so I don't know what's on the horizon meal-wise. I'm packing GF bread, pasta, and other things to help me get through.
