Cook your own meals. Not only do you know what’s going in, it also doesn’t cost a bomb. Planning meals ahead helps you buy in bulk, eliminates wastage, and helps include unused items. Eating seasonal produce is cheaper and you can easily source them at the farmer’s market or ethnic stores. Start your own kitchen garden and get creative with your recipes.
