One of the biggest challenges I and many other families face when meal planning is figuring out how to stay within budget when purchasing meats. How do I know? It has been a hot topic in Get a Life Tribe!
I have shared many ideas and tips on this very topic from buying in bulk to implementing meatless days and everything in between.
Today I wanted to give you a real peek into what meat purchases I buy for the month, how I use what I already have in my freezer and some common meals we have.

Remember that protein can be added to your diet by other food than just meat. Think Eggs, Beans, Greek Yogurt, and Seeds and Nuts.
GREAT RESOURCE AND COOKBOOK:
When I started researching how to eat healthier and stick to my budget I purchased 100 Days of Real Food by Lisa Leak, There is a challenge with this book on how to stop eating processed foods but I purchased it to learn about eating the right portions and cooking with more whole food that my kids would enjoy and that would not keep me in the kitchen all day!
After reading this cookbook I felt empowered with the right knowledge to cook healthy, create my own recipes and make better choices on certain items.
I hope you all have enjoyed this and feel inspired to mix up your menu and still keep it cheap!
If you thin this would help a friend or family member share it with them!
