Great days start with great breakfasts! And what makes breakfasts great? Simple, affordable, healthy recipes that provide you a feeling of nourishment and accomplishment before you get to work! This is why many of my great days start with this $2 and 7 Minute Creamy Scrambled Eggs recipe. So simple. So affordable. So healthy. Check. Check. Check. Get a headstart on your next great day by giving this recipe a try!
Scallops should not be a treat you only enjoy at a fancy restaurant for $20+ per plate. They're a treat to be enjoyed in your own kitchen whenever the opportunity arises. And by opportunity, I mean a sale at the fish counter of your local grocery store. It's time to stop associating "scallops" with "difficult to cook" and start associating them with "an incredible 15-minute option for dinner this weekend!"
Curry used to be one of those foods that intimidated me because I had no idea what it was! Let me break it down for you. It's sautéed vegetables with coconut milk, cumin, turmeric, and coriander. Seriously that's it. Even curry paste is optional to create your favorite curry but feel free to add it if you like spicy food! Once you have the base, you can mix in anything you want - like chickpeas and eggplant to create my favorite curry: $2.25 and 45 Minute Eggplant Curry. Your perfect curry is less than $3 and an hour away!
Looking for a meal that leaves you feeling powerful, refreshed and ready to take on anything? Then this recipe is for you. This recipe is an awesome combination of two recipes on my blog - $0.15 Overnight Crockpot Black Beans and $2 and 40 Minute Vegetable Soup. Both incredibly delicious on their own and combined they create something magical! With the cost savings and health benefits, you've got nothing to lose and a delicious meal prep go-to recipe to gain!
Did you know that you're only $2.50 away from a seasonal dish that will bring you an incredible amount of joy? Well, you are! This recipe utilizes the entire acorn squash - all the way down to roasting the seeds! - and tops it all off with sautéd vegetables. Furthermore, you'll be left with no dishes in the sink and a sense of accomplishment that can only come from making something yourself!
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.
Want to add another breakfast/brunch plate to your repertoire, but don't want to have to learn any new cooking skills or buy any new tools??

All you need is standard kitchen tools and all natural ingredients to create this colorful, delicious and healthy dish that will keep you full up while keeping your costs down.
Looking for a way to make strides towards your health and financial goals at the same time? Work-week meal prepping is a great place to start!

Free your mind to think about more important problems than what you're going to eat for lunch today!
Stirfry = The perfect busy week, meal prep dinner solution. All you need is one pot, some vegetables, and 45 minutes. Next stop, a delicious, vibrant and healthy dish that will brighten up your plate and your day!
Want to take brunch or dinner to the next level? Look no further than adding short rib into the mix! It takes no more than 5 minutes of prep time and after one bite, you'll be wondering how you survived up to this point without this delicious $5 addition to your plate.
