How to Have a Healthy Dinner for 4, For an Affordable $20!

Healthy Steak Fajitas Recipe

On of the biggest misconception regarding nutrition is that, eating healthy is too expensive. This couldn’t be further from the truth. With proper planning and research eating healthy can actually be cheaper than junk food. For those whom have a Fresh Market in there area, they actually make it easy to eat healthy without breaking the bank. Every Tuesday they offer free range, no antibiotic chicken breast for only $2.99 a lb. They also have the Little Big Meal weekly specials which change every week. Basically it is a complete meal for four people for $20. This week the Little Big Meal is for fajitas and includes all of the following:

  • CHOOSE ONE: 1 ½ lb Chicken Breast Strips, 1 lb Sirloin Steak Strips, or 1 lb Raw Peeled/Deveined Shrimp (51-60 per pound)
  • CHOOSE ONE: 8 oz Simply Organic Simmer Sauce, All Varieties
  • CHOOSE ONE: 8 ct La Tortilla Factory Hand Made Style Tortillas, All Varieties
  • CHOOSE ONE: 8 oz Regular or Light Daisy Brand Sour Cream
  • CHOOSE ONE: 1 lb Texas Caviar or Elote Corn Salad
  • GET ONE: Southwest Veggie Kit

These Little Big Meals also bring a recipe card, which are delicious and easy to follow. The recipe below was included with our meal, the only addition was we added a few shrimp.

    STEAK AND SHRIMP? Two of my favorites in one meal 😀 this looks good, and the fact that the complete meal for 4 is $20 only.
