These P70 Dinners Are Quicker and Cheaper Than Take-Out

This meal plan is easier than ordering take-out!

Rushing home for dinner but can’t quite get through the traffic? Take-out may seem like the only option at this point, but you’d be surprised at how easy it is to cook cheap, 30-minute meals at home. They will be packed with flavor, too! These recipes use lots of seasoning and spices to make sure that there is flavor in every bite.



Stock your refrigerator and freezer with ready-to-use cuts of meat like chicken parts, fish, or beef strips. Smaller portions of protein are always quicker to cook.
