Organic Pantry Cooking For Less Than $5 a Meal

[1]Let’s face it, we’re all trying to cut corners here and there to make our monthly budgets work for us, without having to sacrifice nutrition or flavor. Purchasing all organic foods can come with a hefty price tag, if you don’t know how to do it.

The best way to prepare affordable organic meals is to begin purchasing organic pantry staples that you will be using regularly. These low cost 25 pantry basics [2] are a must have for your pantry and are extremely versatile. Be sure and store these foods properly so they last as long as possible [3].

Further, follow these tips on cooking for less.

When you use your pantry basics and take the time to make certain foods yourself, you can mix and match the foods and spices to create delicious, nutritious meals. I invite you to read my book, The Prepper’s Cookbook: 300 Recipes to Turn Your Emergency Food into Nutritious, Delicious, Life-Saving Meals [8] as a starting point on making your own meals and utilize your pantry.

The Benefits

As you can see, many of these meals can be eaten for lunches or dinners. When you buy these staples in bulk, you will get the most out of your money. Imagine how much money you can save purchasing these organic staples and living off of them. Further, because you are eating a cleaner diet, you will be feeling more alert and because you aren’t purchasing the gmo-junk, chances are you will have shed a few pounds as well.

Purchasing organic foods does not have to be a budget killer. By purchasing organic pantry staples, you can easily integrate them into your meal plans, you save money and are eating healthier at the same time.
