One of my skills is being able to cook healthy for very cheap. For me I eat all organic and manage to do so for under £4 a day (about seven dollars a day; and if need be I could probably do so for a lot less). For example below is a super easy and nourishing meal that costs under £3 and feeds two with all organic ingredients.. the myth that eating healthy is expensive is a load of rubbish (plus it also pays off by giving you better health in the long term).
1 smal butternut squash/pumpkin
2 handfuls of green beans
2 organic eggs
2 handfus of baby spinach
1 Tablespoon of Coconut oil (half for pumpkin half for eggs)
Sea salt and pepper to taste
The above gets whipped up with minimal effort and stuffs 2 people well – follow below:
- Cut the butternut squash/pumpkin in half, rub with a little coconut oil (this makes it taste even sweeter!) and roast at 180 degrees for 50 minutes till tender – no need to turn (and yes keep the seeds in and eat them and the skin – they’re loaded with nutrients, plus it means no waste!!)
- Take the green beans and throw them in the same tray as the pumpkin for the last 20 minutes of cooking.
- Then in a pan cook off 200g of mushrooms in some water till soft. Then cook two organic eggs in the same pan (less mess) with a little coconut oil to your liking.
- Serve with some spinach, sea salt and a generous load of fresh cracked pepper.
Simple, cheap, and filling – plus the amount of actual prep time and effort required is near zilch (the eggs being the only thing requiring much attention – win!)
Don’t let eating healthy become too complicated – learn and get more everyday support and nutrition though this.
Love and Light to you,
