For frugal living and a healthy diet, chicken breast is definitely a good choice. I purchased three pieces of chicken breast for $3.5, and used one piece to make this chicken salad. The total cost for making this dish is only around $2. And I ate it for three meals (of course along with other dishes).
Starting from this year, Joseph and I aim to approach frugal living, not only because of our financial situation, but also because we want to live a simple life with less material burden.
One change for frugal living that we start to make is to eat out less. We used to eat out at least two times a week, plus my lunch out with colleagues for about 1-2 times per week. The total cost was usually around $100. Since the beginning of this year, I cook more at home, and $100 can usually cover all our grocery spending for one week.
In a previous post, I shared a fried tofu balls recipe. Today I will share another dish using Tofu. I will call it Spicy Fried Tofu.
