The best way to save money on meals is to plant a garden (even a small one). You control how it is grown, so you also can have higher quality ingredients. Plus, fresh ingredients taste better, look better, and are nutritionally superior to store bought produce! If you use heritage varieties, you can save seed from year to year, so you only have to pay for the seed once!
Better yet, we raise our own chickens and turkeys as well. We pasture our birds so they live happier, healthier lives and we end up with healthier, leaner meat with more flavor and nicer texture (unlike mushy, confinement-raised chicken and turkey)!
