Practical ways to live better on less.
I love Whole Food’s freshly prepared hot food options and delicious salad bar. Unfortunately, it can get pricey to buy these prepared foods every time you shop for groceries. However, that doesn’t mean you can’t make your own delicious recipes at home. Whole Foods offers over 3000 healthy recipes on their website. You will find plenty of festive creations for the upcoming holiday season! I can’t wait to try some out myself in the upcoming weeks.
Visit the Whole Foods Market website to begin searching for your new favorites! One of my favorite winter recipes is the Hearty Lentil Soup, which is so warm and filling. You can make this recipe easily for under 10 bucks and it lasts for several days. I usually purchase a bag of green lentils for a few dollars at either Whole Foods or Trader Joe’s. The bouillon cubes are just a few dollars at Whole Foods. The rest of the ingredients are pretty affordable as well.
It is a pretty simple recipe, although I make a few substitutions, such as vegetable bouillon cubes as opposed to seaweed, olive oil instead of canola, and the addition of a few spices. Have you tried any of Whole Food’s recipes? Be sure to share some of your favorites!
