Hello everybody, it has been a six weeks since my last post and I have been working and experimenting on mastering basic cooking techniques that I am proud to share on this blog.
Recently I was glancing through several articles and reviewing food labeling content when I realize do people really know portion control. For example, on a typical diet, one serving of chicken is 4 oz or 1/2 cup or 8 tablespoons so for about a pound of chicken, total servings would be four people.
Over the weekend we went grocery shopping at Shop Rite and we brought several ingredients to see how many portion meals we can make and how long it would last for under $50. We created dishes, which will be shown on Instagram throughout the week. These recipes are inspired from Thai and Chinese cuisines in combination with recipes from Ideal Protein. Here is the game plan that should last at least 7 days:
Stay tuned for more. Let us know if you have any questions, concerns, comments or feedback on how to improve this blog. We are open to suggestions. Thank you for all your support.
It’s been a long weekend but very excited to post Tablespoons and Teaspoons’ first Sunday Game Plan for the week. After reviewing various circulars, a budget of $30 was set aside to do some grocery shopping for this week’s meal plan. This meal plan works well with anyone who wants to lose weight and take up “clean” eating. Below is the handwritten version of the game plan which lists recipes that will be prepared and made.
Utilizing the ingredients purchased on a $30 budget, at least 12 healthy cost effective recipes can be created for the week with the high probability of leftovers. In terms of current pantry items the biggest investments were the olive oil, rice, cooking spray and soy sauce, everything else in the pantry was purchased under $3 per item. Current pantry items are separate from the $30 budget grocery shopping.
Can’t wait to put these ingredients into great use and make quick, budget friendly and healthy dishes. Stay tuned!!
