Monday's Money Saving Meal: Stuffed Avocado Salad
This weeks recipe is not only quick and easy, it’s healthy! To help cut your grocery budget, I highly recommend going vegetarian now and then. Meat is one of the most expensive items on our grocery lists and it is something American consume in excess, so I try to have 1 or more meat free meals a week. It’s healthier and cheaper! Meijer
