Filipinos are known for being creative and resourceful when it comes to food preparation. This is very true among mothers who amazingly manage the budget for the family.
The good news is, we don’t really need to spend too much to set up delightfully delicious home cooked meals on our table.
Here is a list of budget-friendly dishes and snacks you can try at home. I often do this and it’s always a sure hit for my loved ones.
Good food for less
Having a limited budget means having to spend money wisely. Needs and wants should be planned accordingly. If we are in a tight budget, these suggested meals can help without sacrificing nutritional value.
Veggie Spring Rolls
Stir-fried Eggplant With Tofu
Pork Or Eggplant Omelette
Monggo Soup With Smoked Fish Or Chicharron
In times like this when most of our basic needs are affected by hikes in prices, we should learn to make plans or lists to write down our future expenses and eventually figure out how to deal with them. We should also avoid too much spending on our wants.
Instead, we should prioritize how we can save more especially on managing meal preparation that will be based on our budget. A week plan of what to cook is a great way to lessen bigger food expenses.
Cook, sell and save
If you wish to add money to your budget then you can also try to sell these dishes. Nowadays, it’s more productive to invest even with a small amount of capital because this will soon double your money on hand.
Keeping up with the changing world means you need to learn to be wise about spending. Try more new recipes that will fit your budget without taking away the good taste and nutrition for your family’s needs.
