Budget Friendly Ideas

TIP: Marinate inexpensive cuts of meat for deliciously tender results.

Marinating inexpensive cuts of meat, such as pork shoulder, lamb shanks or beef brisket, adds flavour while it tenderizes.

TIP: Saving cents makes sense! Simmer up a pot of scrumptious soup.

Fill the pot with your favourite vegetables, whole grains and legumes for a healthy, fibre- filled meal in a bowl. The combinations are endless, and a big pot of soup can cost little and go a long way!

TIP: Make your food dollar go farther. Put more plant-based protein in your pot.

Cooking with protein-rich choices, such as lentils, black beans or chickpeas, is a healthy way to lower the cost per serving of your meals. Go meatless with these ideas:

  • Stir up yummy minestrone soup with black beans, chickpeas or lentils
  •  Make a quick chickpea curry for a totally meatless option
  • Add a couple of cups of cooked lentils to ground beef for luscious lasagna
  • Drain and rinse a can of black beans. Add to ground turkey for tasty tacos.
