I hope this gives you a few new recipes to choose from!  Besides my wonderful THM blogging friends, YOUR THM BOOK has many great recipes that are truly budget friendly.  I frequently go back through the recipes and try something new.  There are so many recipes in there that..after two years..I’ve still not tried them all!  Here are just a handful of budget friendly favs:

  • Loaded Fotato Soup (page 294)
  • Chana Dahl Soup (page 311)
  • Chili (page 328 or 329)
  • Kai Si Ming (page 331)
  • Waldorf Salad (page 300) Double or triple for the whole family!
  • Trim Healthy Pancakes (page 223)

budgetfriendlythmThere are many great, easy meals to try.  You can do THM on a budget…YOU CAN! I am so excited that Aldi’s now carries so many organics and foods that are THM approved.  You can get a good price on Greek Yogurt, Cottage Cheese, Stevia, Veggies, Fruits, wild-caught Salmon, cheese, unsweetened almond milk, nuts, 85% chocolate and much more!  You can find great deals at Costo and Sam’s as well.  Buying in bulk can often help you save a pretty penny. Just make a list, take your time and start with easy recipes.  You will get the hang of it in a jiffy!  You can find Part 2 of my Budget Friendly meals here.
