I wanted to run a series of blogs based on affordable food items that are available nationwide or just about. I'm a 30% locavore since it's January and Farmer's Markets do not flourish in snow, particularly in the mountains of Maryland.
So as I resolve to be a more informative blogger, you can resolve to stash a little more cash and find a little more room in your jeans.
Archer Farms frozen vegetables available at Target cost 60% less than fresh. Stock up on frozen fruit and whole grains to round out the start of a new year.
To make, combine:
- 2 TBS Hershey's Special Dark Cocoa Power
- 2/3 Cup 1% milk or the same amount of vanilla soy milk.
- 1 packet of artificial sweetener or 2 tsp of honey
- Non-Fat Whipped topping for garnish, if desired
Heat first 3 ingredients until simmering, pour into mug, garnish, and enjoy!
