5 Meals ,10 ingredients under $50

Updated: May 22

You know that stressed-out feeling you get when trying to plan healthy meals for the week?

You’re not quite sure what you’ll eat OR which ingredients you’ll need OR how the heck you’re going to fit it into your weekly grocery budget.

Not only that, but you wonder how you are going to find the time (or energy) to make it all.

So instead of giving yourself gray hair contemplating it all, you let the thought go and retreat to your usual chicken cutlets & spaghetti and meatball dinners 🤷🏻‍♀️

Listen, you are not alone! That was me almost every week!!

I had such grand plans to be healthy but when it came to executing, I was a deer in headlights.

Not only was I completely overwhelmed with trying to figure out what foods were the best for me to eat, but I had no clue how to fit those ingredients into my tight budget and even tighter schedule! 🤦🏻‍♀️

So after years of practice, I was finally able to perfect my meal plans and shopping lists.

I was able to get my grocery bill to never exceed $100 and my time in the kitchen to never exceed 30 mins!
