Why did we start slow cooking? It all started with Anthony seeing a chili recipe while perusing the web one late Saturday night, when the leaves had started to fall and a slight chill had begun seeping through the previously warm summer period. We went to the grocery that night to get the necessary ingredients, and thus embarked on the main concept to our foodealogy: Food and frugality can be mixed together into many amazing dishes and experiences.
There are many benefits to slow cooking, including:
- Getting food costs to $2 or less per serving
- Spending quality time with each other while preparing a large batch of food
- Minimizing cooking and food preparation during the work week
- Decreasing intake of processed foods by having prepared meal options
Since that day, slow cooking on Sunday has been a regular activity for us. We eat our already prepared great-tasting, homemade meals during the week, saving at least $3+ each per day on what it would’ve likely cost to buy lunch at the workplace cafeteria or restaurant joint down the street.
We look forward to sharing our weekly recipes and hope they will inspire you to start slow cooking as well!
