These are simple ingredients combined creatively. Consider this recipe to incorporate as you learn more cheap recipes to add to your repertoire.

If you are trying to reduce the amount you spend on food, start incorporating more bananas into your meals and snacks.

Other cheap staples are potatoes, beans, rice, lentils, bread, eggs, oats, carrots, and corn.

Also, make sure you know what grocery stores have the best overall prices on food. Where you shop truly matters.
