CNN has a good feature today on nutritious meals for a family for $10 or less. You won’t find a box of Kraft Mac and Cheese anywhere to be found!
Which got me thinking, what are some of your favorite nutritious meals that cost less than $10 for a family.
Here are some of the things I do:
- Pesto sauce with veggie pasta (or whole wheat pasta) with chopped fresh tomatoes in it
- Homemade veggie pizza (store bought crust, tomato sauce, fresh chopped veggies such as peppers, tomatoes, mushrooms) topped with a small amount of cheese
- Vegetable pasta salad
- Marinated then baked chicken thighs, served with veggies
What are some of your favorites?
