Stretching Those Vegetables!

Posted on May 7th, 2015 by Discount Debbie

Vegetables are good. Even if you’re the type who shudders at the thought of salad or hide a grimace when you’re served green beans at a dinner party, there’s got to be at least one or two vegetables you absolutely love!

Vegetables can seem pricey, even frozen ones. One of the most common complaints from people who are watching their budgets are that veggies cost a lot per pound. In my local grocery stores, a SALE price for a single bell pepper is $1! Often they’re $1.50, even for a green pepper, which are usually cheaper than red or yellow peppers! If you do catch a decent sale on some vegetables, you will want to use every last bit of them. If spinach is on sale, don’t buy it JUST because it’s $0.50 per head, but will sit in the back of your refrigerator until it goes bad because you don’t know how to cook it. Instead:

Buy vegetables you like. Maybe the produce you buy isn’t as varied as you’d like to it be, but if you are used to and are comfortable cooking onions, for example, you’re more likely to use them in recipes you will eat before they go bad.

Make soup. Soup is amazing in that you can basically make up a recipe and it will generally taste good, and since you cook it for a while, veggies that are not-so-great can get thrown in there. Celery starting to go soft and your kids hate it when it’s not crisp? Chop it up and throw it in a soup! The soft texture is right at home in a soup!

Use every last bit. After making dinner, you might have a pile of carrot tops and onion ends sitting on your counter. Don’t throw them out—they’re still useful! Do you have a garden outside? Compost them! Do you make soup a lot? Freeze your veggie ends and pieces until you have enough to boil for a broth, and make homemade broth! There are plenty of things to do with vegetables that don’t necessarily involve eating them. How else do you use up everything you buy?

There are two things I like about the New Year getting started: getting a fresh start and getting back to the routine. The two may seem like contradictions.

Whole Foods One-Day Sale: 5lbs of Organic Apples for $5

Posted on November 8th, 2013 by Discount Debbie


I’ll be headed out to Whole Foods to pick up a few apples today. Well, I’ll be picking up 5 pounds, to be exact. Whole Foods is having a one day sale on Organic Gala, Granny Smith and Braeburn apples. You can get one pound for $1.49 (which is a pretty good price for organic apples) or pick up a 5lb bag for $5. If you buy organic apples, you know that $1/lb for organic apples is a fantastic, can’t-pass-this-up kind of deal!

I’ve gotten pretty good deals on organic apples in the last few months. However, this is the best deal by far! I have talked and talked about making apple pie. But, we always eat our apples fresh. This may finally be the time to make apple pie!

Aside from apple pie, I’m looking at other options for ways to enjoy our apples.

I found this relatively healthy recipe for apple bars! Of course, if you’re not concerned quite as much about whether it’s a grain-free recipe, this one looks good too!

I may also give this apple chip recipe a try! Here’s one for maple apple chips!

And, how about some apple salsa and chips (made out of cheese, just cheese)!

So, you get the idea. There’s a lot you can do with apples. Now, that I see all these yummy recipes, I may pick up 10lbs of apples 😉

Do you like to take advantage of bulk deals on produce like this? What would YOU do with all those apples?
