Even though the price of food is rising, eating healthily while sticking to a budget is not impossible. With a little bit of planning and some useful tips, buying and preparing delicious, healthy food on a budget can be done!
Here’s a huge map/guide on eating healthy and cheap.
You can honestly eat very cheaply, and healthy if you make your own foods. It’s okay if you’re not completely 100% healthy due to your income, (I know that feeling, being a Uni student and all) but making your own food allows you to learn to cook on your own, experiment with flavour and get a full understanding of the nutritional value of each meal.
Here’s a list of healthy and inexpensive meals:
A serve of cereal is quarter a cup of muesli, 2/3 cup of breakfast flakes or 1/2 cup cooked porridge – or roughly 30g:
- Rolled oats per 30g = 0.15c
- Corn flakes per 30g = 0.40c
- Breakfast bar per 30g = 0.60c
- Chickpea Salad
- Baked Sweet Potato Chips
- Creamy Chicken Curry
- Lemon Sole
- Fried Tuna Patties
- Eggs in a Bread Bowl
Chicken serving facts:
A serve of chicken is 100g (raw):
- Frozen whole chicken per 100g = 0.40c
- Raw whole chicken per 100g = 0.40c
- BBQ chicken per 100g = 0.55c
- Pre-made chicken kebabs per 100g = $1.40
- Red Lentil and Quinoa Soup
- Easy Fried Rice
- Spaghetti, Zucchini, and Meatballs
- Seafood Paella
- One Pot Chicken and Rice Bowl
- Roast Chicken, Potatoes, Green Beans
- Peanut Soup
Planning is the secret to healthy eating while sticking to a budget, it’s really not as hard as it seems!
- Plan out your meals for the week. This will allow you to think ahead and calculate the cost of each meal/day and see how it fits into your budget.
- Make a shopping list and stick to it. It will also help if you don’t go shopping for food while hungry!
- Think hard about why you are buying discretionary foods and how much you really need to buy. This is especially important if you are trying to lose weight, because if you don’t buy it and take it home, it’s much easier to stick to your goals.
- Drink water. Don’t spend your money on juice or other sweetened drinks, water is pretty much free if you are able to drink it from a tap, and it has no calories. It’s also fairly cheap, too, if you buy it in bulk.
- Freeze leftovers for other meals or for lunches. Also, use leftovers in different ways.
- Buy smaller amounts of lean meat, skinless chicken and fish and extend meals by adding legumes, extra vegetables and grains. By adding extra vegetables to meat dishes, you will also reduce the kilojoules in the dish.
- Only buy what you need.
I don’t know. Today felt like a selfie day.
Only had one class instead of the three I usually have on Mondays!
Happy Spring Day to anyone in the Southern Hemisphere.
Everyone has setbacks. I’ve been eating a very clean diet for almost month now trying to get those abs really behaving for my trip to Vegas in a couple of weeks. Well today I think I ate 3 times my normal caloric intake. LOL- I’m still hungry and I still have my sense of humor over it.
I’ll be back at it again tomorrow. I’ve got too many cute bikini’s to wear and this is the last trip of the year.
Keeping it real. LOL xo -A
Working out is NOT a punishment
- Do not work out because you feel GUILTY.
- Working out is not a punishment.
- Do it because it is fun, because you like doing it, because you like who you become when you work out - but never do it out of guilt and shame.
- Do it with joy and love.
- If you had a cookie yesterday it does not mean that you have to forcefully add reps to your workout routine because you feel bad. ENJOY THAT COOKIE.
