Food intake is one of the basic needs, therefore menu planing is very important from both aspects: nutritional and economical. As years pass by and my experience in the kitchen and cooking grows I have realized that menu planning has helped me with saving time and money, and I avoid throwing food away.
Homemade food is always the best choice, because it is cheaper, and you are controlling the ingredients. It is always cooked with better quality oil, butter, vegetables or fruits. It also helps children grow up with that special ‘taste of home’ memories we all have and still cherish.
It is always better for the home budget to bake your own pie, to make your own homemade yogurt, or mayonnaise and other sauces, to make your pasta and stews. Casserole is an alternative of frying as a healthier choice of a recipe. And appetizers many times help us to cook many leftovers and ingredients that we bought in greater amount, it is always good to have an appetizer for reach taste experience and less food intake from the main dish menu.
Salads both vegetable and fruit are are very important as a snack or starter dish.
