I'm super excited about doing a giveaway today for a fantastic – and I mean fantastic – book from Stephanie @ Keeper of the Home. After 6 years of digging deep to keep a frugal budget (saving 20% to 30% each month), she's poured her wisdom and experience into 280 pages of ideas to help each and every one of us save money while serving nourishing, real food to our families!
“Real Food on a Real Budget: How to Eat Healthy For Less”
I thank Stephanie for the opportunity to read and review her book, “Real Food on a Real Budget: How to Eat Healthy For Less.” I learned so much. I stayed up late one night and read the whole thing. Really.
Even though I thought I had frugal food budgeting figured out, she gave me ideas that I can put into practice right away to help us save more money. I highly recommend the book.
What I love about this book is that while Stephanie shows how to keep a frugal food budget, she doesn't sacrifice good health or good food. She provides example after example of how this really can be done. The examples are real and doable; they come from her 6 years of hands-on experience.
She doesn't promote one specific nutritional thought over another, but instead speaks clearly, simply, and helpfully to all who “esteem whole foods, real foods, healthier foods.”
What You Can Expect From This Book
Quoting from Stephanie's own synopsis of what “Real Food on a Real Budget” offers, you can expect:
- How to shave literally hundreds and potentially even thousands off of your grocery expenses every year, without compromising on what you buy!
- How to establish a realistic food budget for your unique family, and actually stick to it.
- How to provide better nutrition and cost effectiveness through a meal planning method that suits you best.
- How to find places to buy whole and traditional foods wherever you live and compare prices so that you know you're getting the absolute best deals.
- Why, what and how to buy in bulk and what to do with all that food!
- Which foods are both nutrient-dense, cost-effective, and how to work your diet around them.
- Why cooking from scratch is key to eating real foods, how to find the time to do it, and how to use that time as effectively as possible.
- Why you should purchase your foods seasonally and locally, preserve them for cheaper year-round eats, and even grow them yourself.
- How to evaluate whether couponing can work for you and help to stretch your budget just a little bit further.
- Countless tips for practicing frugality in your kitchen.
- And more… (that's what they all say, right? But it's true!)
