Last month for the Keeping It Real Tour, I focused a little bit on saving money. This month’s theme is about eating real food. So I’ve rounded up 35 Budget Friendly Meals from my blog and other bloggers to show you that eating real food doesn’t have to be expensive! I especially love the slowcooker recipes because those allow you to make real food for your family with minimal effort. Click on the recipe names to go to the blog for each recipe. The first five listed are from my blog–maybe recipes you’ve not seen before or had forgotten about. I like doing these roundups because sometimes even I need some new inspiration in the kitchen. I hope you’ll try a few (or more!) Thanks to all the bloggers who contributed to this roundup!
