The Ultimate Guide For Buying Real Food : The Grocery Game Challenge 2017 #1 Oct 2-8

THERE ARE SO MANY REASONS WHY WE SHOULD BE MINDFUL OF THE FOODS WE PUT INTO OUR BODY.   We hear the term ‘real food’ splashed around social media constantly and grocery stores market fresh organic produce and other products to entice shoppers to consider what they eat. My father-in-law swears by his garden and says nothing beats organic produce but consumers may find they get lost in translation towards the food industry. What’s good? What’s not good? Costs? Health? Grocery shopping for the most part seems like a simple chore but many consumers are left wondering what they should and shouldn’t be eating. You might be reading this right now and not give a rats a$$ about real food and eat whatever you want and that’s fine. Your choice. Are we mindful enough of the food we put into our bodies or do we shop for quantity over quality? In our house it’s a bit of both although it truly depends on the person behind the grocery list and the grocery budget. Cooking skills are a must as are the ability to follow recipes or even create your own. If cooking isn’t your thing you might struggle with real […]

How I Grow My Edible Garden Right inside Our Kitchen: The Grocery Game Challenge 2016 #1 Nov 7-13

IT’S CHEAP, HEALTHY AND WISE   Why buy when you can plant an edible garden right inside your kitchen? Why toss your vegetable scraps into the trash bin when you can regrow them instead? This post is not about starting your own garden per se, but more about how to recycle and regrow your vegetable from discards.   Reaping what we sow from our edible garden   Before we started our edible garden, my family of four usually spent around $600-700 a month on groceries. Fruits, veggies (including those that are canned and frozen), rice and other perishable goods rarely come cheap so we usually spend around $70-90 for these items per every grocery trip. Now as our edible garden grows, we are saving around $20 per week on veggies based on their costs off the shelf. It might not be much now but having an accessible food supply 24/7 is so much worth it! Aside from saving a lot of money because I could dramatically reduce my trip to the veggie aisle, this practice is also something that had improved my family’s health. Growing veggies in the kitchen (and later transferring them to pots outdoors) has been a fun […]

The Best Turkey Chili Recipe

A TURKEY CHILI RECIPE WITH FARM FRESH VEGGIES!   Time is not on everyone’s side but if you meal plan you can make recipes like this gorgeous Turkey Chili Recipe that CBB fan Chandra has submitted to share with all of you. These days it seems easier to just buy canned and frozen food instead of spending the time chopping up vegetables for delicious, healthy recipes. I’ve tried some award-winning chili recipes in my time with beef but never have I made a turkey chili before. I was intrigued when Chandra shared this on my Facebook page in our What’s For Dinner? nightly post. Using the same proteins for recipes can get boring plus it’s nice to add leaner cuts of meat or minces like turkey to recipes to make them healthier. Mrs. CBB and I have always enjoyed turkey meals made from mince such as turkey burgers or turkey pot pie. Either way kicking beef to the curb for a day or so is not a bad thing if you want to experience new flavours. You may even find turkey to be cheaper to buy rather than beef mince. If you don’t mind cooking a whole turkey you can […]
