Did you know making your own almond butter is as simple as buying almonds and owning a food processor? Seriously that's it. No additional palm oils or preservatives required. Plus when you make a cup of your own for $2 in only 5 minutes, you can really make it your own. For me, that's Honey Espresso or Chai flavored almond butter. Sound delicious? Trust me it is!

I can't think of a better way to kick off the new year than with this $0.50 and 70 Minute Whole Wheat Apple Banana Bread made with no added sugar.

Start off your new year right by indulging in this healthy treat!
DISCLAIMER: This recipe is pretty much the opposite of everything this blog and I stand for when it comes to healthy eating.

I'm talking delicious, bulk recipes that require minimal touch time - only a little over an hour for a week's worth of lunches and snacks - that will delight and sustain you from one lobster dinner to the next.
Vegetable soup doesn't get enough credit. Too often it's only used as a get-well remedy instead of a dinner spotlight. This $2 and 40 Minute Soup recipe is here to change all that. Time to throw out those over-salted, super-liquidly, probably expired cans in your pantry and trade up to a vegetable soup you'll crave for a main course every day of the week.
Saag Paneer is unquestionably my favorite Indian dish and my only complaint at restaurants is that I spend $12 but never get enough! Well, portion problem solved. In 30 minutes, for $1.75/serving I can make more than I can eat, know all my ingredients, and not have to share with anyone!
