I'm a fruit fanatic, so I always try to have some fruit around. Apples can be added to almost anything, like salads and sandwiches, and they're really good if you bake them with some cinnamon.

I agree with the frozen veggie thing. Steer clear of stir-fry mixes, but a lot of frozen veggies work out great when they're steamed. (Green beans and broccoli are my go-to.)

This is a great recipe for glazed drumsticks that you can pair with brown rice and frozen veggies, I use ground ginger and leave off the sesame seeds and chives, and usually have all the ingredients on hand. It's really inexpensive but still super impressive when you make it like that! And, goodness, is it delicious! I like to squeeze a little lime juice over the top and it really gives it a delicious zing.

By the way, that website has a TON of delicious, easy, healthy, and inexpensive recipes!

frozen vegetables are the best. you can use them in a lot of different dishes and they're just a few bucks per bag. and the best thing is that they won't go bad.

i also make a really good quiche. the only fresh veggies you need are broccoli, spinach and 1 small onion. i buy enough just for the recipe.
here's a link to the recipe :)

I live in Switzerland where everything is really expensive, so I struggle with the same problem. That's why I'm a big fan of potatoes. They are quite cheap and there are so many ways one can prepare them. My favourite is to boil them, then cut them in small stripes and fry them just a little in the smallest amount of olive oil. Well seasoned with salt, pepper and maybe some garlic, this makes up a whole meal for me.

I'm looking for some simple recipies of things you've had that are easy to make. I don't want to buy 1 ingredient for a dish that I'll never use again but I also want to eat healthy! Can anyone reccommend a good website, post one or a few recipes or a book?

Thanks emoticon
