Does that title crack you up too? Jen told me about this website, just wanted to share it. :)

Great money saving ideas and recipes. Enjoy!

I'm going to make the Taco Style Lentils & Rice tonight....maybe even add the chickpea hummus dip recipe. Yum!

Beans are so healthy, especially when rice is added to the meal. It makes a complete protein (contains all the essential amino acids in amounts adequate for human use), similar to proteins from an animal source. Try replacing a red meat meal with a beans and rice meal, your heart and pocketbook will thank you!

***Update*** Taco style lentils were yummy! We used it for a taco filling, and the kids ate it up! Owen asked for seconds! Regular ground beef taco filling has about 347 calories per serving, lentils & rice taco filling has about 80 calories per serving.
