Affordable Healthy Recipes to Meet Your Resolutions
Many resolutions revolve around health and finances. What could be better than affordable healthy recipes?! ACCC has dedicated an entire Pinterest board to Cheap Eats. They can easily fit into your grocery budget. Here are a few highlights from that board to get you started on your New Year’s resolutions.
Sun-Dried Tomato Basil Chickpea Salad Sandwich
This recipe is from Create Mindfully. While it can be a very affordable meal, that depends on many items from the recipe already exist in your pantry. It’s still affordable even if you have to shop for most things because the amounts are small for the expensive ingredients. In any case, it looks and sounds delicious. This healthy recipe is vegan, gluten-free and probably follows a few other diets.
One Pan Mexican Quinoa
Next is a recipe for a very easy, healthy and delicious meal from Damn Delicious. I have made a very similar recipe and had fantastic results. It became an immediate family favorite. This recipe has very affordable ingredients that can be easily adapted to what you have on-hand. Additionally, swap out the quinoa for pasta for more savings. It only takes one pot to make which saves time cleaning up the kitchen!
Eating healthy can sometimes cause your grocery budget to skyrocket. Meal planning becomes critical when eating differently. Trying too many fancy ingredients, things you may not like or too many items, in general, can eat up the budget. Keep your excitement focused on your plan and budget. You will pick up lots of yummy and healthy recipes along the way without going broke.
