Vegetables are not only good for you, but they're cheap too. Save money and increase your intake by rethinking how much meat you eat this week.

Many of us have a tendency to make meat the focus of our dinners, but food blog Cheap Healthy Good suggests planning a few dinners each week that are strictly vegetarian. For vegetarian meals, choose options that are still hearty and filling, but don't rely on meat as your source of protein. These "Meatless Mondays" and "Tofu Tuesdays" will add up, meeting your vegetable quota and making a difference on your receipt when you go food shopping.
If you're not overly concerned with the money-saving aspect, but just trying to eat a little less meat in general, Cheap Healthy Good suggests the option of taking your savings and using it toward higher quality meat. If you could have chicken nuggets every night or a delicious steak twice a week, which would you choose?
