How to Stretch Ground Beef and Your Food Budget


The Trim Healthy Mama sisters, Serene and Pearl, show a hack for stretching ground beef  in the video above. I’ve been doing a similar thing already for years, except I use cabbage. For those of you like my sister-in-law who think mushrooms are totally gross, cabbage will do the trick. Cabbage definitely lasts longer. It doesn’t get slimy like mushrooms do if left for over a week in the fridge. Mushrooms probably provide, however, a beefier texture. They say that mushrooms provide lots of Vitamin D if brought to room temperature, and I doubt if cabbage has Vitamin D, so each ingredient has advantages. Next time we have taco salad I’m going to try this recipe! You can see my hacks for doing the THM diet on the cheap here.
