Sometimes the temptation to eat out at your favorite restaurant is just too great. You want to save money, but you also want to treat yourself to some super yummy foods. I get it! I am a big fan of not cooking dinner. However, in the name of saving money and paying off debt, considering copycat recipes might be your best option. Personally, whenever we have gone out to eat and eaten something unique that we love, I have tried to come home and copy it. The funny thing is, you can actually get more of the food you love for less than the cost of one meal eating out. So I took the top searched restaurants and gathered five of their best copycat recipes just for you!
Personally, I am not winter’s biggest fan. I definitely prefer a perfect 70 degrees fall day over a 30 degree, windy, cloudy winter day. But, the one thing I do love about winter is hot crockpot meals. When I started eating healthy, I realized there is no better way to eat healthy than with hearty crockpot meals. When you’re stuck in the house all day or just come in from the cold, the entire house smells amazing and you know there is cozy comfort food waiting for you. So, in honor of those chilly months ahead, I’ve collected 17 of the best healthy, frugal crockpot meals for those cold winter days we have come at us.
It’s been over a year now since I had to accept the hard fact that a vegan diet wasn’t working for me. I had finished my Holistic Nutrition Certification that taught me all about the incredible benefits of plants and all the ailments that a vegan diet could cure.

So let me walk you through how trying veganism taught me minimalism one lesson at a time.
