Introducing … our new website

Over the last few months, we’ve been busy redesigning our website. And TA DA … we are happy to announce the new Spend Smart. Eat Smart. site is now available!

The site has new features and recipes, updated content, and easy access to recent blog posts, videos, and our social media outlets. Here’s a sneak peak of what you’ll find when you visit …

How To Channel
A completely NEW feature, this section contains a collection of videos and handouts focused on food shopping, food preparation, food safety & storage, and recipes.

Recipe Collection
Who doesn’t like browsing through recipes? Ours are easy, low cost, nutritious, and now organized in categories similar to what you might find in a cookbook – appetizers, main dish, soup, side dish, salads, snacks, and desserts.

Cost of Food At Home Calculator
This ever-popular tool is still available to help you determine a reasonable amount to spend on food for your family.

Social Media
Not only do we have a website and blog, we’re all over social media, too! It’s easy to access Spend Smart Eat Smart social media outlets on Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest. Like our page, follow us on Twitter and Pinterest and if you haven’t already subscribed, signup to receive our weekly blog updates sent directly to your inbox.

There’s more, but I don’t want to totally spoil the surprise. Check out what we’ve been up to on the new site and let us know what you think!
