How to make Puerto Rican food on the cheap!

Lately, I have been trying to find ways to save as much money as possible. What I have been finding is that my money is increasingly going to fast food. Not only is this hard on my wallet, but fast food in itself isn’t very healthy for you. Instead, I will be looking for ways to save money, by making my own food! This will also help me learn to be more self sufficient,  and when the ladies ask if I can cook, well, I will be able to say yes!

The “No Fast Food For A Month” Challenge…

A friend of mine told me about a Reddit posting the other day where the person would only eat home cooked meals for the entire month of March. This got me thinking, and I came up with several conclusions. First, I don’t think I have ever done that in my life, so just to say I have done it, this is a great challenge. Secondly, I spend a LOT of money on fast food. And by a lot, I mean I eat out almost every day, since I am always on the road. First of all, as I am sure you know, I can’t begin to tell you how unhealthy this is. Not only is this type of food not very good for you, it is also very expensive.

I haven’t had to cook much throughout my life, so I think this is a great time to learn. So, how will I accomplish this feat? Read on to find out! (more…)
