So often I hear that yes, it is better/healthier/safer to eat organic and/or wholesome foods, but it's simply an ideal because let's face it: money is tight.
And I've heard that message bounce around in my own head, too. I'm not pointing the finger at anyone, but rather wanted to excitedly let you know that after experimenting, couponing, searching blogs, etc, I'm starting to see how simple and cheap it can be to eat wholesome, clean and healthy foods. In fact, it's become so inexpensive and tasty that DH now prefers my healthy home made dishes over eating out or eating junk.
Here is an example that I just have to share!
1 bag of organic green beans on sale: $1.00
1lb of antibiotic-free, vegetarian-fed chicken thighs (not the perfect meat, but still a better option) $2.84
1 bag of sprouted quinoa $5.99 (makes 6 servings, so only used $2.00)
1 onion $0.50
a chunk of raw ginger $0.50
a few cloves of raw garlic $0.50
Bragg liquid aminos (soy sauce replacement, unfermented, organic soy, this depends on your soy comfort) $3.99 for a whole bottle
a scoop of raw honey $5.99 for a whole bottle
a pinch of himalayan salt $3.99lb
organic cherry tomatoes (optional, some people don't like how it alters chicken adobo) $2.99 a pint
Toss everything but the green beans and quinoa into your slow cooker. About 20 minutes before dinner, add the green beans to the slow cooker and start cooking the quinoa in a different pot. (Remember to add pastured organic ghee or butter to your quinoa for an added nutritional burst!)
It's delicious! We practically inhaled this, so no photo. Next time I cook it I will snap a photo lol!
