  5. I have a simple pasta dish . I boil pasta with sea salt and olive oil and in another pan I add olive oil diced of roma tomato fresh oregano salt pepper galic and cook for a few minutes and then when pasta is soft enough I am the pasta to my pan and top with fresh parm .This is simple and yummy

  6. I love Ur videos, Thanks so much. I see Ur point from both angles. My 2 kids & I on the go would get 3 .99 burgers, a small fry & small soda w/free refills $5 & tax. I did the tuna casserole w/mac&cheese/mushroom-soup/canned-peas. Also cheap are chillimac, shephard's pie,.

    Thank you so much for supporting The Discount Trendsetter Show. I truly appreciate it.

  9. Try this for a salad dressing. I use it for both a tossed salad and my steamed vegetables.
    1 TBS apple cider vinegar
    1 TBS balsamic vinegar
    1/2 TBS Realemon
    2 TBS orange juice
    a squirt of spicy brown mustard

    This combination tastes great. Please give it a try….Virtually no calories and no fat. I started eating healthier about 1 1/2 years ago and have lost 50 pounds. 198 down to 148, and feel great!!!!! Blood pressure & cholesterol is now good. This is with a change in diet. No medication..

  12. @katanaxou

    Thank you so much for your kind comment.

  13. You can really tell you eat healthy because your skin is SOO nice 🙂 x

  14. I subscribed months ago but I am slowly making my way through your videos as I get the time. You are a joy to watch and you are so likeable. Great tips for a poor student like me! Thanks sister!

  15. @babygirltatertot

    Thank you so much for your wonderful comment.

  16. Good job, try Brown rice, frozen veggies, canned tuna and stock cubes. All you need to cook a dinner for pennies. Cook veggies in a little water and 1/2 stock cube, add the canned tuna and serve with the cooked brown rice. Simple dinner which costs hardly anything.

  17. i love these videos! Thank you!!

  18. luv ur outfit.

  19. Great ideas! I like to grow my own herbs in little potts on my window sill during the colder months,and in the summer I put them outside. They add a lot of flavour to your meals, and are very healthy! Cheap too, because they keep growing year round.

  20. bananas for breakfast or whole grain bread is good for breakfast. spinach is very healthy! i love to eat that in my salad all the time! ^_^

  21. Thank you so much for supporting The Discount Trendsetter Show.

  22. Great tips. Although rather used a jar pasta sauce, you would save more money using a canned tomatoes, add water, reduce it, and then add the frozen vegetables and seasonings.

    Thanks for sharing. Blessings.
