Tips of the Month MOBILE

Planning Ahead Tip of the Month

“Plan Your Meals for the Week”

For cooking newbies, shopping for exact recipes can prove helpful. But for us, busy working moms, it is more interesting to look for ingredients you can use in a variety of dishes, this practice can save you time and money. After all, if you buy an entire bunch of tomatoes for a single taco salad, you’re going to end up with a lot in the garbage. But if you buy a whole bunch of tomatoes, cook them and divide them up to use in pastas, in wraps and in salads. You can save on cooking time and keep from throwing away your money. Go into the store knowing how many servings of proteins, grains and vegetables you need. When you get home, get creative to use up everything you’ve purchased.
