Need ideas for cheap/easy/healthy meals

Wednesday, June 26, 2013

My boyfriend and I are trying to eat healthy on a budget and I need ideas for cheap, healthy meals, snacks and desserts. We eat a lot of chicken and lunch meat... I don't eat much meat so it would be nice to get some vegetarian recipes as well. I'm not very experienced when it comes to cooking and baking, so the easier the better. Thank you in advance! :)

    My go to easy recipes for dinner that are yummy are:

    Stir Fry -

    1 cup rice (prepared)
    Chicken baked and then cut into cubes
    2 cups Frozen veggies (I like the Vegetable StirFry Blend and the Yellow Carrot Stirfry Blend)
    2 tbsp low sodium soy sauce

    This meal is super easy, quick and extremely filling and cheap

    Tacos - I love me some tacos!!! LOL

    Ground turkey cooked and mixed with Salsa for flavor (could also be made w/chicken)
    Corn Fajita tortillas (the small ones)
    Cheese (I usually measure 1-2oz depending on how many calories I have left)
    Hot sauce

    This is a quick simple meal but very tasty and I love tacos so its a got o for me by using the corn fajitas tortillas I am able to have usually 5-6 small tacos so I feel like I am eating more because there is only 110 calories in 2 of the tortillas.

    Start slow and don't give up on your favorite foods just learn healthier ways to make them and measure measure measure that is the biggest key is make sure your measuring your foods and getting as close to accurate calorie counts as possible the rest will fall into place!

    Good Luck!

    I'm not great in the kitchen either unfortunately, but have you looked at the Spark Recipes section of this site? If you have the time, just browse through and then you can decide for yourself what you think sounds easy to do :) Good luck! E_F x
