Cutting out on expenses is a must when living in a tight budget, and the college years are known for taking a toll on your wallet.
The good news is that you can have a healthy diet after all, even if you only have $7 to spend on food during the week. That means spending only a dollar on groceries per day.
You can prepare several meals with the meat, and the bones and other bits can be used to make broth or any different recipe in a slow cooker. Add water, spices, veggies, noodles, rice, etc. and voila! You have a delicious and healthy soup.
If you are a Dave Ramsey fan you may have heard about the beans and rice diet. Aside from being cheap, beans are also extremely filling and healthy.
When you are on a budget, take extra care to shop your pantry. Items in your pantry are basically free, so they absolutely fit into our $1 a day meal plan.
