Our meals certainly don’t seem meager despite not going to the grocery store. A few things I wish I had bought more of in preparation for NSM (no spend months):
I didn’t realize how much fresh fruit we ate as a family, or cheese for that matter. I usually buy raw cheese, so eating it cold as a snack or shredded on top of beans, soups, etc. is perfect for us. I am rationing both fruit and cheese thus far and so am doing a lot more baking for snacks. I am trying to cut way back on my grain consumption (i.e. 1 serving a day or so), so I am very thankful for the coconut flour we have on hand. I will share some recipes for cranberry-walnut muffins and other yummy coconut flour baked goods.
Here’s what we’re eating this week:
