We have a hard time getting good food. It is not that I don't know how to cook, it is mostly the cost of produce and meat that gets me.
Here is what I do already:
I shop for produce in season. Even in season, it is expensive here because I live in Montana. Winter/cold months are especially hard and that is about 6-8 months out of the year.
I do not buy red meat unless it is on sale for DIRT cheap. We mostly live on ground turkey (the cheapest ground meat here) and chicken.
I cannot eat a lot of carbs. Rice makes my Blood sugar SKYROCKET. When I check my blood sugar in the morning, it is usually still high if I ate it for dinner. I avoid it. If we eat pasta, I eat whole grain.
Hardly any processed foods except for the occasional frozen pizza.
We buy frozen veggies most of the time because they are cheaper and I hate the mushiness (is that a word? lol) of canned.
I have tried to coupon, but we do not have a printer so it makes it difficult to get a lot.
my kitchen is TINY. (see THIS post for what I mean.) So I have very little room for bulk storage and making bread in nearly impossible in it. I have a hard time just making a batch of cookies. For messurements, it is 10 ft by 2 1/2 ft of floor space.
We have a very small budget. Help! :)
