The Magic Ingredient


There is one place you can go and spend more time in that will supercharge your savings and maximize your food budget.  Best of all it requires no traveling or even opening up your wallet.

However, you will have to get past some mental roadblocks. 

You’ll have to develop courage and boldness.  Demanding of yourself to be more adventurous and willing to try new things. 

If you are capable of harnessing the power within then you’ll be ready to delight your family, neighbors, and guests. 

You will have to become fearless in the kitchen.

Many great home chefs are dismayed, disillusioned, and dismissed by the perfection portrayed on all the different cooking shows and magazines. 

What they don’t show is how the celebrity chef has a staff of 7 just to fill and refill her “mise en place” and lay out all the proper tools/gadgets needed to make a plate that won’t satisfy a toddler.

These same people are the same ones telling you don’t have enough time to cook while saying you can make dinner in under 12 minutes.

The reality is we are all busy with life – jobs, raising kids, and/or taking care of extended family.  I get it.  Lots of us are already stretched too thin.  We feel we don’t have enough time to be with those we love and never enough money to do the things we want.

Yet we are craving, starving for more meaningful connections.

I am here to tell you-you can have more time, fun, money, and build the connections you so much desire.  While caressing all of your senses – sight, sound, smell, touch, and taste. 

Couple that with the stronger bonds you’ll build with those who truly fulfill you like no takeout order ever will.

Most of the general public spend to much time watching TV with an average of around 5 hours per day.  One out every 4 minutes is spent on Facebook and other social media platforms.  While over $3000 is spent on fast food and eating out. 

Take a look at this graphic and you’ll see the low hanging fruit to boost your food budget.  The likelihood of improving your health and increasing your savings is right there.  As Americans we are spending over $3000 eating out a year.  That’s a lot of money.

We don’t need more time and as you can see the money is already there.  It’s being spent not invested in those things, which will bring you the most joy. 

By making the commitment of meal prepping, cooking, and eating at home as a together your family will enjoy each other more. 

Remember what you appreciate, appreciates.  You will likely laugh, have a deep conversation and undoubtedly surprise each other through both mishaps and successes in the kitchen. 

Discovering new recipes, ingredients, and capabilities you never knew you had.

To top it off almost automatically you’ll begin to see your savings grow and a few extra real dollars in your pocket.  Because the money that would have usually gone for Lo Mein or a large Pepperoni Pizza is now fueling your culinary adventure inside your own kitchen. 

If you find your family is eating healthier and generally feeling better, its probably because you are cooking with fresher ingredients and adding a touch of love, the magic ingredient, in every meal you make.
