Speaking of getting our money's worth, with a large family who loves their fruits and veggies, we have made our grocery store's discount produce rack our main go-to spot in the store. We always come home with a variety of delicious produce for very little money. The other day my Fella came home with 16 lbs of fresh blueberries for $12, a calculated $67 value! We froze most of them to make them last.
This morning I enjoyed a healthy and delicious smoothie containing, milk, avocado, blueberries, spinach, mango and vanilla. Oh. My. Yum!
For lunch I just made a fresh salad of Boston lettuce, blueberries, mini turnips, radish, avocado, cheddar, and a lovely maple balsamic vinaigrette.
Last night we sautéed up bok choy, turnip, red bell pepper, young garlic and scallions with soy sauce and sriracha to have as a side to our chicken thighs. So savory and fantastic.
How do you keep it fresh while saving money? I'd love to hear from you in the comments.
