Everyone wants to feel good about what they are eating, serving guests, and feeding their families, but most of us don't do our weekly shopping at pricey specialty stores-- we do it at the local supermarket and we don't want it to break the bank.

This book will make you confident about the food you're buying, preparing, and eating. Delicious recipes like Almond Waffles with Raspberry-Basil Sauce, Kale and White Bean Caesar Salad in a Jar, Slow-Roasted Tomato Spaghettini, Flatiron Steaks with Quick Cauliflower Kimchi, and Flourless Fudgy Dream Cookies have something for every type of eater at every meal of the day. No matter your favorite flavors or dietary needs, cooking on a budget is empowering-- and now you can learn how to make every bite count. If cooking at home is the key to healthy living, Supermarket Healthy is the only tool you'll need.

My Review:
 Apparently, there is a way you can eat really well on a budget. The author of Supermarket Healthy, gives you step by step instructions on how to feed your family well and still stay on a budget. She is able to give you recipes that the ingredients won't cost you and arm and a leg. The best part is all the ingredients can come from your local supermarket and not one of those specialty food stores. Supermarket Healthy is chock full of tips, advice, and delicious recipes that you can cook for your family tonight.

 The recipes that I am planning on trying tonight is Flourless Fudge Dream Cookies and Slow Cooker Beef and Rice Pockets. Besides food for the regular pilate she has also included vegan or vegetarian recipes. So very every different taste in any given family, you will surely find something to please everyone.
