How To Turn a $55 Grocery Haul into 20 Healthy Meals

As grocery prices continue to rise, I’m here to help! This is the full post from my latest grocery series where I took a single $55 grocery trip and turned it into five different recipes, or 20 servings of delicious, healthy food! This series was inspired by my frustration with the rising prices and my desire to continue to eat healthy meals while still operating within a tight budget, I hope it helps!

This is my fall edition of this series! If you love to eat veggie and protein packed meals but want to cut back that grocery bill, try getting the groceries from the list below, and following along with my recipes!

You can find all of the videos for the series on my Instagram, TikTok, or YouTube. Be sure to follow me there for more videos like this! You can also check out my feature on Good Morning America, BuzzFeed, & Yahoo!.

  1. Wow! We thought the chicken and vegetables was delicious, then we just tried the pasta with pork, squash and kale and omg was that unbelievably good!! Cannot wait to try the tofu next. Thank you for posting these dinners-the grocery list plus meals made it a breeze of a cooking week!
