One reason you may see similar foods being used as you go through this website is because, well, I have a very limited space to put all my food. I also don’t have a big budget for food and can only buy a little bit at a time. For most people out there who are broke, or close to it, I assume it’s the same way for you. It’s unrealistic to think you could have a huge fridge and pantry packed full of expensive food. I wanted to show you my food storage situation below so that none of you are without excuse!
I live with 4 other girls in a house, and sharing one fridge is a bit too chaotic for me. So I’m using a super mini fridge for all of my food. This picture was taken after a big shopping day so it’s pretty full, but this is what I work with.
Don’t think that in order to eat healthy you need to spend a ton of money at the grocery store every week. Don’t feel like you have to buy every vegetable in the store every week- one week get plantains, the next get broccoli, the next fresh beans. Just take it a little bit at a time. You’d be surprised at how many different meals you can make with the same ingredients.
