How To Cut The Cost of Feeding Your Family in Half And Eat Better

After more than 30 years of practiced shopping to save money, My wife and I can truly
claim victory. Having produced 3 boys early, we had to find ways to feed all five of us
with the best food for the least amount of money, since my wife stayed home with the
children (most of the time), so there was only one paycheck.

A few basic suggestions:

1- Buy “store brand” name whenever possible.

2- buy as small “prepared” foods as is possible.

3- Keep stock of these low-cost and high nutritional value foods:

Pasta, dried beans and rice.

4- Also, buy “keepers”, such as Sweet and White potatoes.

5- Set some time aside for bulk meal preparation that can be frozen for later use when time is more critical.

How you prepare your food stocks will also contribute to your monthly food expense since
your cooking costs are part of your food bill. Some suggestions here might not be so obvious, such as using your microwave, assuming your have one, instead of your stove top
or oven, be it gas or electric. Most people do not realize that stove top cooking can be
3 or more times more expensive than using your microwave and that the specific savings depends on the make and model of the electric or gas stove you use and the size of the microwave. In most cases, the cost saving switching the greater part of preparing your
meals to the microwave will be very noticeable after the first month.


A fantastic family cost savings meal!

Combination Stove top, Microwave cooking…
Here is how to delight in Oriental Rice at less than 25% the cost of your favorite restaurant.

place 2 cups long grain white rice in 4-quart pyrex container.
Add 3 cups water (2 3/4 cup for slightly firmer rice)
With Microwave set on High, set timer to 20 minutes
Start Microwave and run for first 15 minutes uncovered.
Place cover over container and run for the 5 remaining minutes.
Stir and fold rice gently to aerate.

To cooked rice, add:
Add 1 Tbls. Soy sauce, 1 Tsp. Garlic powder and 1 Tsp. Sesame seed oil

In large frying pan or Wok:
Stir fry
1 medium Green Pepper(chopped coarse)
1 medium Onion(chopped coarse)
1 8-oz. can, or 8 oz. fresh sliced Mushrooms
1 8-oz. pack bean sprouts
1 Tbls. Peanut oil
Those with preference can stir fry shrimp, cubed pork, or chicken in 8-oz helpings and
add to above.

Add to rice preparation and fold well.
Add more Soy sauce and Sesame seed oil as needed.


Recipe above can use spaghetti in place of rice for an oriental Lomaine touch and sprinkling
finished platter with chopped scallions in an amount to your likings.

Using this simple approach with a family of five and improving on it daily could place $300-$400 extra in your budget every month.
