7 Money-Saving Tips to Cut Your Grocery Food Bill By $30 a Week (Page 2)

Swap Tofu for Meat

1. Swap Tofu for Meat

Let’s face it, meat is expensive. So why not try tofu instead? It sounds sort of ridiculous, but tofu can be marinated, grilled and sautéed—just like steak can. It has a real knack for sucking up flavors, so cooking it with something bold (like barbecue sauce, for example) can give your taste buds a real jolt without you feeling like you’re missing out. Of course, you wouldn’t swap tofu for meat every night, but using this swap once a week will save you some serious dough.
