Spending less & eating better

Small table makes the house bigger
French proverb

Apparently the Emperor Napoléon had the reputation of not being a big eater. Good for him… But it is true that sometimes, we the humble people are legitimately VERY hungry. And sometimes, our budget can be tight… So what should we do?

In fact, since several years, eating has been a headache. The media constantly torment us with contradictory messages. Between what we should and shouldn’t eat. We get lost…

So here are 5 basics tips that might help you in this storm :

1_Sandwich bread (soft bread) : much more economical than the baguette

The idea:

_First, wheat has been revered since the dawn of time. Don’t listen to the nonsenses about the gluten. The wheat is the basis of the diet of the most humble.

Be careful of the economic appeal of the white bread: it does not have fibers (which risks causing you hemorrhoids).

_Then, we sometimes think that it is a product that we eat for breakfast. But in fact it can be consumed whenever you want. Look at the “ club ” (triangle) sandwiches, they are made from sandwich bread and they are ideal for lunch and dinner.

_You can put it in the toaster if you wish.
Hummm… Delicious…

_There is a real fetish around the French baguette. It is a part of the “ chic ” of the French culture. Yes. But the sandwich bread is a part of the “ chic ” of the British culture (wink).

_Finally, the preservation of the sandwich bread seems to be much better than the baguette…

2_Sliced burger cheese

The idea:

_First, of all, the cheese is a good add to your meal.
If the wheat represent a masculine food.
The products linked to the milk (as the cheese) represent the feminine food.
Obviously you need to eat both kind of food.

_You don’t need a fridge for this kind of product.

_Finally, if you heat it, it’s even better…

3_The strawberry jam : a good trick

_Finally, it’s a good value for money.
Because, the fresh fruits, are very expensive.
And the strawberry jam is very nutritious.
