Eat Well, Spend Less on Vacation

June 22nd, 2013 · 1 Comment · Eat Well Spend Less, Frugality, Save Money

And now for the fabulous ladies of the EWSL series – here’s what they have to say this week about summer vacation: eating well at home with all the kids, in the car, camping, and on vacation.

It’s a spectacular roundup, so grab a cup of coffee, tea, or water kefir and enjoy some weekend reading…

Camping Kindle Book Free!

In case you missed my post this week, I talked about real food in the car with kids and all the goodies we pack for long drives.

I’m ALSO offering my Family Camping Handbook totally FREE all day today (Saturday, June 22nd) on Amazon! Even if you don’t camp, it’s a great resource for fun summery foods in the backyard. Pass on the news to outdoorsy friends (and if you miss the freebie, I’m keeping it at 99 cents for a few days before it goes up to its regular $5 price).

Grab it HERE. (Did you know you can read Kindle books even if you don’t have a Kindle? They open in your browser…great deal!)

    The way we save money is we go somewhere where we can stay in either a condo/villa. It means we pay a little more for the room but it is well worth it when you sit down and figure out how much you would spend on eating 3 meals a day at restaurants and in my case that would be for 3 people. Another reason we do it is I have an allergy to dairy and I would go crazy if I had to try and find something I could eat or explain to the restaurant staff how I need to have my food cooked three times a day for a week. Also, my daughter doesn’t do well with too much restaurant food she starts to rebel and refuse to eat. We find that going back to our room and eating a home cooked meal helps us to relax and enjoy our trip even more. We were in Myrtle Beach last week and before we left I put together a menu and shopping list and first shopped for non perishables from my pantry and anything that was perishable we purchased when we got down there. It doesn’t mean that we don’t eat out at all. We usually eat dinner at LuLu’s cafe the day we get there and breakfast at the pancake house down the street the next morning and the occasional lunch out.

Welcome!  Meet Katie.

I embrace butter. I make homemade yogurt. I eat traditional real food – plants and animals that God created, not products of plants where food scientists work. Here at Kitchen Stewardship, I share how I strive to be a good steward of my family's nutrition, the environment, and our budget, all without spending every second in the kitchen.
