The ONLY thing I had trouble with was the second set of Mountain Climbers. For some reason I thought my legs were going to fall off… Lol.
worth a shot eh?
cooking in bulk - a cheap, healthy alternative to frozen meals
you know what’s terrible for you? every processed meal you see in the freezer section of your grocery store. i don’t care if it says healthy, natural, low fat, or anything else - they’re expensive and not good for your health. most are high in sodium and full of ingredients you can’t pronounce.
make this on a sunday night, and you won’t have to rush and worry about what you’re bringing to school/work for the rest of the week.
it’s simple: cook up some rice, beans, and quickly steam up a few vegetables. add in different spices in each container to change up your meals. change the food ratios if you need more specific nutrients than others.
the cost breakdown:
- 4 cups rice - about $1.00 (buy rice in large bags from an asian market!)
- 3 cups black beans - $1.29 (dried in a bag)
- 3 heads broccoli - $1.50
- 1 bag baby carrots - $1.00
- total for 7 lunches, not counting different spices = about $5.00
this might not be a glamorous idea, but it could be life altering to those of you who think eating healthy is too expensive, too time consuming, and not appetizing enough.
Healthy and low-cal desert recipe. If you have any good recipes, send them to me and I’ll give you cred.
If I didn’t already get made fun of enough for my headphones at work, I’d snap these up in the heartbeat.
