I wish I had a grandmother close to teach me how as my mom doesn't really "cook" either and she is in a different state too. We are in need of eating less processed and we are aware that is the case. I just honestly don't know how to go about it on the same food budget. To eat non-processed always seems to cost more though I am not sure if it really does or not.
You would be surprised that you can get healthy non-processed foods and save sometimes. When it comes to cooking and eating healthy, I do meal plans. That way I make sure our meals are balanced and healthy. That way I also have everything on hand that I need to make those meals for 2 wks.
