How to Get Restaurant Quality Meals on a Budget

Warm weather is finally here, which means it’s a great time to indulge in local restaurants and cafes – especially ones with outdoor seating!

Most of us love eating out at restaurants. It’s convenient, social, and delicious. With the foodie scene exploding these days, there are also so many new places to try in many cities – from locally sourced, farm-to-table eateries to all types of international and fusion kitchens!

While many of us love to eat out, we also know that the process can be time-consuming, as well as that regularly treating yourself to delicious, quality food isn’t always easy on the budget. Eating out at restaurants can cost upwards of $20/meal. Two people eating out just once per week can exceed $2,500 per year. For a family of four, that number doubles to $5,000 annually. And this is for eating out just ONCE per week! Many of us eat out far more often.

If you are an adventurous eater who loves to try unique dishes and cuisines, then keep reading.

Many people want to find ways to eat at home as it’s often healthier, less expensive, and easier to cater to individual tastes and dietary restrictions. However, many of us simply can’t be bothered to cook for ourselves. There are many reasons why.

Cooking gourmet meals at home can be time-consuming, laborious and downright intimidating. I mean, who really knows how to cook authentic Indian or Thai food from scratch?

What if I told you that you could easily and cost-effectively make and enjoy your same favorite international meals in the comfort of your own home?

With Karen’s Spice Kitchen spice blends, you can create a restaurant-quality lunch or dinner without breaking the bank. Depending on where you shop, and the type of vegetables and proteins you want to use, plan to spend an average of $20 on ingredients to whip up a delectable dish that serves 4-6 people. That breaks down to just about $3-5 per person!

Indulging in a gourmet feast does not have to be expensive.

Our spice blends could be your new best friend, whether you’re hosting a large dinner party, meal prepping for the week ahead, or simply wanting to stay home on your porch enjoying a summer night with a bowl of something delicious that you made yourself!

You could even turn a night in into a small social event – invite a few of your closest friends and ask them to bring a side dish or some dessert. How could you say no?!
