This post is in partnership with H-E-B
As you know I am very passionate about the relationship we all have with food and what we consume. I am a big fan of doing good a majority of the time so when you don’t, your body has the chance to fight back and do its job!
There are a lot of conversations on how organic food is really expensive and the majority of the population can not afford it. And to some extent that’s accurate but not 100%.
I wanted to show you all that by keeping it simple and getting creative, you can actually feed your family all organic meals on a budget. I decided to go into my neighborhood supermarket HEB and partner with them to show you guys some ways to achieve that and also some extra great information, recipes, tips and entertainment throughout the next few months!
Watch the videos below to see how you can feed your whole family organic meals for under $20 with simple recipes that anyone can do it!!
Remember that everyone’s tastes are different, so when making the recipes give them your own twist or your own extra spices or seasoning if you get inspired or feel the need to!We are on a mission and we will do better together!!!

- *Tip: Push the vegetables over to the side of the Wok so the water from the vegetables will settle to the bottom of the Wok and cookoff.
- Slowly add the cooked rice to the stir fry and add a little more tamari.

Bolognese Pasta Dish
- Olive Oil (for drizzling)
- 2 cloves H-E-B Organics garlic
- 1 handful H-E-B Organics kale (fine chopped)
- 2 handfuls H-E-B Organics white onion (fine chopped)
- 1 large H-E-B Organics carrot (chopped)
- 1 large H-E-B Organics tomato (chopped)

- 1 pound H-E-B Organics Capellini
- Flake salt
- Black pepper
- Over medium-high heat, drizzle olive oil into a large saucepan. Add the garlic and a sprinkle of salt to release all the flavor and fragrance. Stir to combine. Add onions, chopped carrot, and chopped tomato. Let it cook down for a minute until onions are translucent. Add the chopped kale and stir to combine.
- Add ground beef and break up evenly in the pan. *Tip - You can use a whisk to help break up the meat.
- Season beef with salt and pepper and cook beef until medium or medium-well.
- Add both jars of the sauce to the pan. Increase the heat to high and bring sauce to a boil. Then reduce heat to low for a simmer. The longer you cook the sauce the more flavorful it becomes. Cook for a minimum of 20 minutes up until 60 minutes on a low simmer.
- As sauce finishes, add two basil leaves and three drizzles of honey.
- While sauce is simmering, cook your pasta.
- Bring 6 quarts of salted water to a boil. Add pasta to boiling water and cook it until it is it almost al dente. Drain the pasta and add it to the sauce.The pasta will finish cooking in the meat sauce and will absorb even more flavor.
