As you’ve probably noticed in the supermarkets recently, the price of food is increasing at an alarming rate. Products that we once took as commonplace are now becoming precious commodities, and it’s making cooking for pleasure harder.
Cooking and eating are universal routines, and for some a source of joy and fulfilment. As someone who lives to eat, my form of expression is at risk; however, we shouldn’t let it stop us from finding new ways to have fun in the kitchen.
Increased food prices should not mean we need to compromise on the quality of what we eat. Here are three small ways in which you can stay excited whilst shopping and still enjoy cooking as much as possible this autumn.
If you have time, shopping around for the best price for a product is a guaranteed way of saving money. If you find that you’re spending considerably less for items than you would at your regular supermarket, consider switching over to the more affordable alternative.
Get creative with vegetables:
Vegetables are a lot cheaper than meat per kilo and can contain just as many nutrients needed for a healthy diet. Vegetables are incredibly versatile and by deciding to cut down on your meat consumption, you will definitely reduce your weekly shopping spend.
Don’t be afraid of the freezer:
Learning about how long things can be frozen for will ensure that you are not wasting money on food by throwing it away. Also, freezing as many leftovers as possible will help nourish you when you don’t feel like cooking.
