Financial Education Benefits Center: Make Cooking Solo on a Budget Satisfy Body and Soul
SAN RAMON, Calif., September 3, 2018 (Newswire.com) - If solo cooking on a budget sounds sort of depressing, there is a definite need for a reboot. Solo cooking can be a great expression of spirit and passion, much like a solo from Yo-Yo Ma’s cello, soaring on sonorous wings of shimmering light. And it can be done for much cheaper than assumed with some advanced planning. Solo chefs have an intended audience of one, which they know intimately, and can go all in to focus on delighting that one person. Financial Education Benefits Center (FEBC), a member benefits company specializing in discounts for health and financial wellness, encourages putting creativity and energy into food preparation.
“It’s important for all of our clients to eat healthy diets,” said Jennifer Martinez, Manager at FEBC. “It can be especially challenging for those on a budget, so we encourage our clients to be creative and use our grocery and dining out benefits to maximize both their dollars and health outcomes.”
Preparation is the top suggestion from nutritionists and food professionals for food soloists with limited resources. Each week, individuals need to take a look at what’s ahead and understand just how much food they need. Start by figuring out just how many meals will be made at home and build a menu based on that. A grocery list specifically designed for each week will reduce food waste, which can be a huge drain on grocery spending.
It can be especially challenging for those on a budget, so we encourage our clients to be creative and use our grocery and dining out benefits to maximize both their dollars and health outcomes.
Food pros suggest buying from bulk bins where shoppers can buy small amounts for less money, decreasing waste and per unit cost. In addition, they suggest having plenty of frozen fruits and vegetables on hand. Frozen fruits and veggies will never go bad and are highly flexible. Simply toss a handful of blueberries on oatmeal, or some kale with chicken to make a well-rounded and delicious meal.
To turn solo cooking into an adventure, experts suggest elevating an ingredient, such as a small amount of better quality parmesan to make an ordinary pasta special or a pesto sauce to stir in with veggies. They also suggest turning up the music, from Cardi B to Yo-Yo Ma, whatever speaks to your heart, as you cook and eat, to turn solo cooking on a budget into a nourishing, body and soul-filling experience.
“We are very much aware that many of our clients are limited in their resources, and we focus our efforts so that they can feel more satisfied and alive at home,” said Martinez. “Aside from discounts on groceries and dining out, we offer many other health and wellness benefits that can help our clients live richer, fuller lives.”
