EATING HEALTY ON A BUDGET IS POSSIBLE?



I was talking with a friend of mine about the cost of life and she was talking how much she is spending on eating, well honestly we weren’t agree about the fact that is possible eat healty and delicious food if you are on a budget… Which is your opinion? In my personal opinion and experience is possible have a good healty meals also if you are on a budget.

For example today I went into discount-groery store near home and I've bought : a big bag of salad, 2 big pack of rice, 6 yogurths, a mini cheese, a jam jar and a peanut butter jar...with ingredients I already have in my cabinets and this I can prepare delicious food and stay on a budget...infact total of my shopping is been €11.16 not bad:D



I have several books that show it (Jack Monroe wrote a blog turned book about eat with few money…A girl called Jack, with delicious recipes that don’t broke your finances) , plus since I have a budget to respect (welcome adulthood), I am been more interested about what there is inside “already ready meals” and I discovered that buying fresh, seasonal and local helps to stay on budget and your fantasy helps you to create new interesting dishes :P

I’m not saying that you cannot buy already meals, but for your healt (and your wallet) is better buy single ingredients and make by yourself, but use “ready meals” for special occasion or for that time you came back at home late and you don’t want to spend a lot of time cooking.

However we talked a lot and in the end we were talking in front of a cup of coffee in a café (treat that worth every single cent I’ve spent) reading cookbooks and recipes magazines…

Well believe or not, a Saturday she was nanny of her nephews she decided to  went with them into grocery store saying them “to buy items only in the list” and then “you will help me to prepare meal”, for first time after months they had great time together, they cooked and kids that are involved into food process, eat more veggies…cooking is always a good activity to do with your kids-nephews. More they are involved in every single activities, more they would like to learn about it!!!

JOB INTERVIEW OUTFIT: INSPIRATION FROM OLIVIA PALERMO & ELISA D'OSPINA

As I wrote some post ago first time I saw Olivia Palermo into "the city show" I found her nasty and posh but I always admitted that I loved (and I still like a lot) her outfits because she was ans still is always perfect... so if you have just received a phone call for job interview see her outfit searching inspiration (web will help you to find low cost similar clothes but on your budget so bankruptcy isn't an option)...










The other woman that I admire for her style is italian curvy model Elisa D'ospina, she is really beautiful woman and her outfits are perfect, because if you are curvy sometimes isn't so easy to find right outfit for you...

One thing that you must to do during job interview is smile, have a good voice (not too high/low volume/tone), not too much make up, clean hair and I suggest to study the agency so you'll be prepared on questions about their business and wear clean clothes, I can  remember that time that a friend of mine wore her favorite wh…

SANREMO SECONDA SERATA: PARLIAMO DI LOOK

Qest'anno ho deciso di guardarlo ma arrivo ad un certo punto ed il sonno vince però con rai replay vedo quello che mi sono persa e in alcuni casi devo dire meno male...
Iniziamo a parlare del look di Carlo Conti e la scelta migliore rispetto alla prima sera, oddio qualunque giacca scura sarebbe stata meglio di quella "da vecchio" della prima sera....comunque si inizia con le nuove proposte e lo devo dire ho una profonda invidia per i capelli di Marianne Mirage, che ha scelto un look molto bello ed elegante, la canzone è anche molto bella e secondo me avrà successo (e prima l'hanno passata in radio un paio di volte), Francesco Guasti e ok lo devo dire io ho un debole per gli uomini con la barbetta ma qui si esagera però il look non mi dispiace per niente e la canzone...si mi è piaciuta, gran bel timbro vocale il ragazzo, il terzo ad esibirsi è Braschi, giovane carino con la faccia da bravo ragazzo, canzone carina ed orecchiabile ma se devo dire se mi è piaciuta o meno,…
