I have a question about meals. I have the NJB cookbook which I have used a lot, but I don't like the idea of using bread as fillers and giving my family mainly water for beverages. A lot of junk food recipes in there too that I just don't feed to my family. (Such as the chocolate granola bars which is full of sugar and fat, and other things)The kids need milk, they need fruits and veggies and their protein. Do the people that feed their families so cheap eat a lot of bread to fill the kids up? Also, I like going to Aldi's but I find that there is so much junk food there. Yes, if you eat all that junk (chips, candy, cookies etc...) you can save a lot of money. I don't like a lot of canned food, it just doesn't taste very good to me so I don't save there either. I did buy their brand of Gogurt, their milk is a good price, but there isn't much else there that I would buy. At a regular grocery store I can find good produce, lots of nice fruit and veggies, a lot of times I buy my meat from Sam's Club if it looks good and is a good price. We eat a lot of chicken breast, ground turkey, pasta.
So, my question is to make a long story short...what is a typical snack for your family and a typical 3 meals a day and what do they drink?
Thank you! I need help, as a lot of you know, to lower my debt.
