Newsletter Excerpt: 12 Tips to Stretch Your Fruit & Vegetable Budget
1. Buy in bulk. Buy frequently-used ingredients in bulk [e.g. beans and frozen vegetables]
2. Cook in large amounts and freeze leftovers. Place enough food for 1-2 meals in each container.
3. Create a weekly meal plan that uses the same ingredients in different ways. For instance, extra grilled chicken can be used in a casserole or salad at another meal.
4. Substitute fruits and vegetables for meats. Meats are more expensive but beans are an excellent protein substitute, and vegetables and fruits add flavor, texture and nutrients. . . .
