Often I get asked if one can actually save money by doing their meals at home versus running down to the local REI for meals.
The answer is always “Yes!” but I hadn’t really ever run how much one could save. And simply put, I decided to see if it was more than just money that one could save.
Could you also eat healthier and save money? …
Sarah compared the $6 Mountain House Spaghetti and Meatballs meal-in-a-bag vs preparing her own:
Made at home Spaghetti (16 ounce serving):
700 mg Sodium
13 g Fiber
29 g Protein
As you can easily see, you can save a lot in cost, sodium and you will get a LOT more fiber if you make your own. You will also know exactly what is in your meal. At a savings of about $4 per serving and half the sodium, that alone makes it worthwhile to make your own. You are also avoiding potential hidden MSG, and fillers.
