Welcome to Foodie on the Side! Here I’ll be chronicling my journey to feed myself in the most delicious, real, & cost effective way I can. If you’re like me, you love to eat out at restaurants, but you’re on a budget. Oh, and you LOVE to cook! So you know how satisfying it is to cook something delicious that makes you and your loved ones smile. I watch tons of cooking shows, rip recipes out of magazines all the time, and even daydream about running a restaurant, so of course I’m interested in learning how to make everything I love to order at restaurants at home – for less – with lots of leftovers that I can save for easy – cheap – weekday meals! My mission isn’t only about saving money though, it’s about eating better, and adding more organic, unprocessed foods because that’s where you get what your body really needs.
