Healthy Frugal Food

I like this site because they say good things about grandmothers**.
click around the site there is lots more – they also have free downloadable shopping list templates for healthy food shopping.
Other food/health favorites discussed in the village this week are: superfoods - G.O.M.B.S. (Greens, Onions, Mushrooms, Beans / Berries, Seeds) very veggie if you can get past the blue eyes.

** Avoid fake food, ask your grandmother. Ask her about Twinkies, Pop Tarts, or those exploding Pizza Pop things. If your grandmother can’t identfy it as food it’s probably a fake. Grandmothers are exceptional resources for learning how to stretch food dollars. My grandmother was very frugal and raised a family of five by baking bread, soaking dried beans, and preparing whole foods into nutritious strews, soups, and dishes. Stick with what grandma knows as food and you should be well on your path to frugalicious eating.

  1. Elaine, you are so right! There is nothing like making fresh vegetables, stews, home made soups, spagetti sauces, etc. When I was growing up, there was no tv dinners on my mother's table. My parents really knew how to stretch a dollar. I do have to confess that I take advantage of the convenience of frozen foods but still make my own stews, sauces and soups.
