For anyone wondering why my grocery bill is so low… I’ve been making big batch meals (some call it OAMC), portioning up into containers and freezing. Each weekend I make a new breakfast, lunch, and dinner meal.
Most of my fruits and veggies are free or very cheap at the Farmer’s Market. Today, I made coconut granola (spent $.89 on dried cranberries as everything else was in the cupboard). I spent a whole dollar on watermelon for snacks
In addition, it cost me $2 to get the ingredients for the chicken/cheese wrap (had enough grilled chicken breast in the freezer to make two wraps). Finally, it cost all of $2.97 to make stuffed shells and garlic bread since I had all the ingredients on hand to make the sauce and bread…only had to buy two boxes of shells and a container of ricotta! Hmmm…looks like I’m on an Italian kick!
