While Jessa Duggar certainly kept her parents’ traditional ways in some aspects, she’s started to branch out in others. One of the areas is with meals, and part of that will be due to not having to buy in bulk as much. However, you can’t always take the past away, and her latest meal on social media proves that.
Cheat Sheet reminds us of the typical Duggar family meal. It would include canned meat, which is something Jessa Duggar’s latest dish involves.
Buying in Bulk to Save Money
19 Kids and Counting provided fans with plenty of insight into the Duggar family meals. With so many involved in the preparation and cooking of food, we spent a lot of time in the kitchen. One thing we got to learn was that canned food was extremely common. This isn’t all that surprising when you consider the cost of canned food. For Jim Bob and Michelle and their 19 kids, buying in bulk was a necessity, which canned food allows.
Jessa Duggar and her siblings don’t have as many children as their parents did, but the past creeps into their day-to-day lives. For Jessa, it’s all about remembering some of the staples from her past. When sharing her family’s favorite meals, fans noticed that canned food remained popular.
Through her YouTube channel and Instagram profile, Jessa shared one of the latest dishes the family loves. While this food comes prepackaged, it isn’t unhealthy. In fact, it’s packed with green vegetables. The kids love the meal, something that Jessa is proud to share on Instagram.
Many fans will be able to recreate the dish. The meal takes just 10-15 minutes, and everything is available easily in the store. The great news is that fans love the meal, too, and kids really do enjoy it.
Jessa Duggar Shares Some Family Food Secrets
The dish isn’t all the Counting On star shared. Jessa picked up some of her father’s eating habits. Jim Bob would open cans of food and eat them cold. This is something Jessa now does.
She is certainly not the only Duggar family member with strange eating habits. Jessa’s sister-in-law, Kendra, shared that Joseph Duggar licks the plate clean. Nobody shares if the others do, but it does suggest some food insecurity. Before 19 Kids and Counting, the family had one small wage and that may not have been enough to feed everyone. We know the Duggars are thrifty people, so it wouldn’t be surprising.
