I know many of you like me have very busy lives. Cooking everyday can feel like more of a chore than anything else. Did you ever stop to calculate how much money you are spending eating out vs. cooking at home?
I never went to culinary school, so my dishes can often taste very basic. What I have discovered are great recipes that are super easy to make. Trust me, if I can do it so can you.
The other thing to think about is how unhealthy processed and fast food is. To start the path to clean eating is by preparing and planning your meals in advance. The worst way to start cooking at home is by waiting till you get off work. Usually, when I get off all I want to do is go to a drive thru line.
All you have to do is find a good recipe website and there are many out there! I was on a budget this week and I made a super easy dish using chicken thighs. To make this dish healthier, I did not eat the skin. I served it with rice and a salad. Click the link below to try this recipe.

Change starts with making a list of what you’re financial goals are. Experts suggest that you start small and make sure your goals are manageable. It is also important to determine what your needs are vs. wants?
I also suggest buying a calendar, so you can track your goals. Do you want to save money for a wedding, house, kids, or retirement? The path to financial freedom is easier when you can see your destination. Divide the goals in to weekly or monthly milestones and don’t forget to reward yourself for your hard work! It will be challenging at first, but don’t give up. The end result will be worth in the end.
Identify an accountability partner. Share your vision with your partner and have that person set a calendar reminder to keep you on track. Teamwork makes the dream work! If you know your weakness is spending money on careless things, make sure your partner is aware of what that is. It is important to start new habits and break the bad ones that are holding you back.
