I was asked on my Instagram how could someone meal prep like me but more cost-effectively.
Unfortunately, I do spend quite a lot on food for Mike and me weekly but I believe our nutrition is an investment in our health. I also love how we’ve simplified parts of our life. Convenience equals time to spend together or work on my side hustles that are revenue-generating.
- We use Loblaws Click & Collect. If I wanted to save $3-$5 weekly I would go grocery shopping myself but I value the time I get back on Sunday for doing laundry lol
- We order meat once a month from truLOCAL. This actually saves us money from buying from the grocery store. But if I wanted to save even more money I’d shop for my meat from local farmers and negotiate to purchase in bulk. This would only be possible if we had a deep freezer and were able to store large amounts of meat for large purchase discounts.
This is a picture of Buffalo Bone broth simmering on the stove. We get the bones in our monthly box delivery!
If you’d like to shop with truLOCAL you can use this Referral Code: KHJ2BD9W7MZX and you’ll get to add 2 free Striploin Steaks or 4 Wild Caught Alaskan Salmon Filets to your first box!
- We purchase our produce from Loblaws. If I wanted to save money I’d shop at another grocery store but I trust the quality of the Organic Fruits & Vegetables that we get there. My other option to save money would be to shop at local farmer’s markets in the summer.
Fresh juice I make weekly!
The above recipes are:
Orange, Grapefruit, Lemon, Ginger & Turmeric
Beet, Cucumber, Apple, Carrot and Melon
Here are some other cost-effective meals:
- BBQ Chicken (Antibiotic, Hormone Free) + Green Veggies
- Plantain Pancakes (instead of a whole bunch of ingredients)
- Lettuce Wraps w/ ground beef, mushrooms + dairy-free cheese
