What to eat when your broke?
When money is tight stick to simple, easy to make meals. Soups are great you can add more liquid to spread out the meal. Breakfasts for dinner are always a hit in our house. Eggs and breakfast foods are cheaper to buy than heavy dinner meals. Pastas are always a hit and cheap to make. Beans and rice are healthy, cheap and easy to store dry goods.
If you are wanting meat based meals stick to ground meats and cheaper meat cuts. Using a slow cooker will turn cheap meats into great meals. Or opt for vegetarian and choose bean and vegetable based protein dishes.
