Millions of American families are discovering the dangers of eating processed food. But wholesome, fresh ingredients can seem more expensive -- from buying organic grains, dairy, and produce to the issue of food waste as people learn to plan and cook in new ways. With her 100 Days of Real Food blog and her two bestselling books, Lisa Leake has been a leader in helping everyday families move away from processed foods. She also understands the concerns of her followers who want to eat better without breaking the bank! In this book, she shows readers how to make a variety of unprocessed dishes for $15 or less a recipe.

This is one to buy. I think I've used it every night for the last two weeks. Menu plans are provided, but the beauty of this book is the ability to mix and match. Or to just make a main dish and add on some potatoes or rice or frozen veggies. Many dishes make their own sauce.
Even considering I needed to purchase a few extra spices that I didn't have on hand, I still didn't spend any more on groceries than I usually do. Favorite recipes included braised chicken with rosemary gravy; creamy braised pork chops; weeknight tandoori chicken; tomato and olive frittata; and slow cooker carrot curry soup. Dark chocolate crumb bars were pretty disappointing, just sweetened baker's chocolate melted over blender pie crust. But, they were just as easy to make as everything else in the book. The braises, the tandoori, the frittata, none of them took more than 20 minutes to make, including the prep.
