100daysmeatlessWhat’s the biggest part of your grocery budget?

If you buy high-quality meat for your family, it’s probably meat. Cooking a roast once per week, boneless skinless chicken breasts a few times a week, and fish one night per week adds up very quickly.

You can trim money from your grocery budget and calories from your meals by going meatless once per week. Some families like to do “meatless Mondays.” One night per week, don’t make meat the focus of your meal. Make a vegetable quiche, stir fry with an exotic vegetable as the star, or veggie soup. Even going meatless just one night per week can save you quite a bit of money.
To save money on groceries throughout the week, try not to make meat the biggest part of your meal.

Instead of serving everyone their own chicken breast, cook one or two chicken breasts into a casserole that feeds everyone dinner and provides lunch for the next day. Fleshing your meals out with vegetables, carbohydrates like bread and rice, and side dishes can help you use less meat in your meals.
