Let’s face it. Meat is expensive. A good cuts of meat is more expensive and organic meat is the most expensive. Our family is participating in the Hickory Nut Gap Farm Meat CSA and we’re receiving local grassfed meat, pork and poultry. This is our first year and I’ve mentioned why we chose to do this in our Better Health series.
Even if you’re not buying local meat, the grocery store prices are climbing. Buying meat on sale is one way to save money, but how about stretching even further by:
- dicing, slicing or chopping
- adding vegetables
- adding fruit
- serving it on, in or mixed with a healthy carbohydrate (like a wrap, calzone, pizza crust, rice or pasta)
