Next week Whole Foods is having a one day deal on rotisserie chickens. Easily one of their most awaited deals, they sometimes sell out in HOURS. In other words, set your alarms so you don’t forget to be there early. Why don’t YOU want to miss it? Because I have 3 amazing recipes and one meal idea that can deliver quick easy meals that taste delicious and don’t cost a fortune.

I was given a $50 gift card for ingredients to create some recipes so I decided to take that $50 and show that you can shop Whole Foods on a budget. I was able to buy enough food for more than 5 meals with $62. With next week’s rotisserie chicken deal you can get even more for that money. Ready to see how I did it?
