Quick Meal Tip - Choose Recipes With Less Ingredients

Tip 2- Look for recipes with fewer ingredients and as a bonus you may save money.

When we started using a 4-ingredient cookbook for some of our diabetes classes we noticed a decrease in our grocery bill.  Along with using less ingredients, look for recipes that use fresh ingredients and less processed foods.  These will have a health benefit as well as save time.

How can using less ingredients save you time?  You will not have to prep or measure as many ingredients.   You will probably have shorter cooking times as well.  Here is an example of a tasty recipe that takes just a few minutes to prepare

An easy seasoning for a beef cube steak or pork chop is dried Italian Season Mix.  Rub the mix on your meat and then pan fry in some olive oil about 5 minutes on each side.  Serve with a cooked frozen vegetables and some instant brown rice.  Dinner will be ready in less than 30 minutes.
