How Can I Stretch my Groceries?

Great eating doesn’t have to be complicated. We’ve created a way to enjoy 5 delicious dishes from just 1 bag of groceries. So you save money and time without sacrificing flavor.

The idea is simple: Combine one bag of groceries with ingredients you probably already have on hand in your pantry. Then use them to make five of our favorite dishes, one for each night of the week.

The Entrées

Eggs can be part of a balanced diet—as long as you enjoy them in moderation. The main concern is that a single egg yolk contains more than half the daily recommended intake level of cholesterol. So if you enjoy an egg for breakfast or hard-cooked with your lunch, you’ll need to limit your other sources of cholesterol throughout the day. Many health experts recommend limiting egg yolks to no more than two a week.

Go without the Yolk

To make it easier to fit eggs into your meal plan, just cut out the yolk—the yellow part contains most of the cholesterol. You can make an omelet or scrambled eggs with just the egg whites. You can also use cholesterol-free egg substitutes. For a speedy single-serve idea made with egg substitute, try the Grab-and-Go Breakfast Sandwich.

Cut the Fat

Instead of cooking your eggs with butter, try a cooking spray. Or consider using a nonstick cooking pan that won’t need added fat at all, or poach your egg in a microwave-safe container.

Add Delicious Ingredients

Stirring vegetables into your scrambled eggs is a great way to increase the nutritional content without significantly increasing your carbohydrate intake. Learn how to make our Cheese & Pepper Omelet with this cooking video.
