Cooking at home instead of eating out is a great way to stay within your budget! Choose easy recipes that take only 10-20 minutes to make, such as a loaded burrito bowl, hearty veggie chili, crunch berry parfait, and more!

Always keep spices on hand! They’re inexpensive, shelf-stable, and can help you add new flavors to your regular meals--no new recipes necessary.

Sautee a big portion of veggies and store them in the fridge! That way, you can incorporate vegetables into multiple different meals throughout the week.
