Cooking organic and staying on budget doesn’t mean you need to skip your favorite dishes or skimp on the flavor. It just takes planning and prep to make the switch to organic. Luckily, I’ve done some of the work for you by creating a meal plan and shopping list to keep you eating organic on the cheap. This week I’ve got three organic dishes packed full of flavor that will feed your family four all for under $25.
I purchased a whole organic chicken to cook because it’s nearly half the price of an already prepared organic rotisserie chicken from the store. I’ll get a couple meals out of one bird too. That’s where the prep and planning come in for cooking on a budget. It’s all about making the most of your ingredients to really get a bang for your organic buck. I also look at my budget as a whole. If I am making a big dinner, then I might make a more frugal breakfast and lunch. For example, you can see that’s exactly what I did this week to come in under budget at $24.89.
