Delicious and Nutritious Dinner for Less than $15

I struggled a lot in college and my early working years after I graduated with eating healthy.  There were two main reasons for this.  The first was I didn’t have much money and fast unhealthy food was cheaper and more filling (or so I thought).  The second was that healthy food seemed so difficult to make myself at home.  These reasons affected me a lot physically of course, but also mentally, emotionally and financially over the long term.  It was not a fun cycle and it limited me from taking my life to the next level.  How could I live up to my full potential without my physical body operating at optimum levels?

When I finally did some research and learned from people who were eating healthy consistently on a budget I realized I was telling myself stories that weren’t true.  I too could live a healthy, energetic and vital lifestyle even though I didn’t have much financial resources!

I always loved red meat and was thrilled to find out I could pick some up at the store for less than $10 and it could be a meal for two days.  In the past I would go to a restaurant to treat my cravings and spend $20 or more and it usually wasn’t the healthiest option.  As a side note – today I do limit my animal consumption for health, moral and ethical reasons and allow myself to eat animal products based on certain criteria I defined for myself.

The video shows a simple meal I chef up regularly.  It costs less than $15 and serves up four meals.  It is grass fed meat which is usually the only way I go when I eat meat.

Here are the ingredients:

  • Grass fed bison
  • Whole wheat pasta
  • Scallions
  • Roasted pepper sauce
  • Olive oil
  • Tomato sauce
  • Salad
  • Parmesan cheese

My suggestion to you would be to choose a few go to meals you can master that are staples in your diet and you can rotate through for variety.

Bon appetit!
