Pantry Challenge: Use Less Meat

Meat is one of the most expensive food groups to buy at the grocery store.  To cut back on your grocery bill and make meat last, use less meat.  Buy a smaller cut of meat and make more healthy side dished to fill everyone up.

A plate should consist of 1/4 meat, 1/4 vegetables, 1/4 fruit and 1/4 starch (like noodles or rice).

Instead of making a beef pot roast, you could make a beef stew and use the leftovers on leftover night or as lunch.

Other countries use meat sparingly as a flavoring instead of having it is the main dish for a meal.

Use less meat.  It will save you money and it is healthier!
