The author of the phenomenal bestselling 100 Days of Real Food series addresses the most common concern of her readers--how to cut out processed food on a tight budget--in this full-color cookbook with shopping lists and prices for each recipe.
Millions of American families are discovering the dangers of eating processed food. But wholesome, fresh ingredients can seem more expensive--from buying organic grains, dairy, and produce to the issue of food waste as people learn to plan and cook in new ways.
With her hugely popular 100 Days of Real Food blog and her two bestselling books, Lisa Leake has been a leader in helping everyday families move away from processed foods. She also understands the concerns of her followers who want to eat better without breaking the bank In 100 Days of Real Food: On a Budget she shows readers how to make a variety of unprocessed dishes for $15 or less a recipe.
Unlike other budget cookbooks that only calculate the cost per serving (have you ever tried to buy just 1/4 cup of sour cream?), this incredibly practical book gives you the exact total cost for all the necessary ingredients for each dish, helping busy families even on the tightest budget plan the meals that will work for them. Lisa provides delicious recipes for breakfast, packed lunch, and dinner, as well as snacks and desserts, including:
