6 Dinners Under $6
By Karen Berman
Believe it or not, it is possible to get a delicious, healthful dinner on the table without breaking the bank. One key is to fill your plate with vegetables and legumes and to serve meat, poultry, and fish in smaller portions.
What follows are six diabetes-friendly menus that cost $6 per serving or less -- some significantly less. They run the gamut from vegetarian to steak and potatoes to Italian, Mexican, Chinese, Indian, and fusion. Some of them require investment purchases -- if you don't already have items like curry powder, cumin, and turmeric in your pantry. These and pantry staples like salt, pepper, cooking spray, oil, and vinegar are not counted in the per-serving costs. The menus that follow are designed to serve two, but you can easily adapt them to serve more.
Swap in these six delicious dinners for your usual weekly take-out or restaurant meals and you will wind up with more money left in your wallet at the end of the month!
