money by going vegetarian
Did you realize
that going vegetarian can save you a significant amount of
money over the course of the year, or even a month. No, we
are not advocating that you suddenly stop purchasing meat
and become strict vegetarians. Instead consider making at
least one of your meals a week vegetarian.
Meat and poultry
can easily make up a huge part of your mealtime budget. So
it makes sense to cut out at least one of those meals a week
and switch to a vegetarian meal.
If you are concerned
that your family will not take to eating vegetarian style,
you don't have to make one of the funky new age tofu loving
meals. Instead, make spaghetti without the beef. Or make a
stirfry with vegetables and rice instead of chicken or beef
strips. There are many meals you can make were even your kids
will not miss the meat, even if your family qualifies for
being the biggest meat eating family in America.
If your family
is truly reluctant to cut out meat at even a single meal,
try making spaghetti with only half the amount of beef or
make that chicken stirfry with only half the amount of chicken,
chopping the chicken smaller to disguise the smaller chicken
portions. Because the meat can truly helps you cut your food
budget, it makes sense to either try going vegetarian for
at least a meal a week, or at least cutting it out the amount
of meat you use per meal.
