A Week of Meal Ideas (and some CRAZY cheap chicken!)

A Week of Meal Ideas (and some CRAZY cheap chicken!)

It’s taken me forever to get this written down, but here are our meals for the week! Groceries ended up being really low cost this week because…. I got the chicken for $1 off the family pack that was already only $ 0.79 per lb. […]

Rustic Balsamic Eggplant (Whole30)

Rustic Balsamic Eggplant (Whole30)

If you are new, we are huge about shopping at Aldi. In fact, shopping the cheapest store is one of my biggest points in How to Meal Plan/Shop/Prep on a Budget. But I’ve got to be honest about something: we occassionally get sick of the produce […]

Dairy Free Creamy Bacon Spinach Pasta

Dairy Free Creamy Bacon Spinach Pasta

My hubby craving comfort food strikes again! In case you missed it, a couple of days ago he made up (with a little help) a dairy free sausage gravy. Biscuits and gravy are one of his favorite foods. Another favorite food? Creamy pastas. The issue […]

Dairy Free Sausage Gravy

Dairy Free Sausage Gravy

This recipe comes courtesy of my husband, who is a huge “biscuits and gravy” fan. The problem? After he did a round of Whole30, he realized that dairy really doesn’t agree with him. I could’ve told you that years ago because of the, ahem, effects, […]

A Couple of DIYs: Pizza Crust and Waffle Mix

A Couple of DIYs: Pizza Crust and Waffle Mix

Can I be honest about something? I don’t think it’s a secret that we eat about 80% Whole30, 90% Paleo, and the other 10% “Food Freedom”/Whatever We Feel Like. Well a couple of those items that fall into the 10% are pizza and waffles. Here […]
