eat healthy for cheap

Soba Buddha Bowls (vegan)

A super easy vegan dish that I’ve been loving lately! Something about laying out a “Buddha bowl” is so therapeutic. This is also pretty cost efficient, since Soba is fairly cheap. You could also swap our some of these veggies for frozen edamame or canned chick peas to make it extra efficient for your budget.

Ingredients:
- Soba (the T&T brand one comes divided as four servings. I made two servings, one for me and one for Momo)
- Veggies of your choice! I used Diced cucumber, halved cherry tomatoes, chopped green onion, sliced bell pepper, and torn kale massaged with sesame oil and a sprinkle of salt. 
- Per serving: 1 tbsp rice vinegar, 1 tsp sesame oil, salt and pepper to taste
- Extra sauce: 2 tbsp sesame oil, 3 tbsp rice vinegar, 3 tbsp soy sauce

Instructions:
1) Prepare the soba as instructed on the packaging. Drain and since well with cold water. Transfer into a large bowl (if making more than one serving) and drizzle with 1 tbsp rice vinegar and 1 tsp sesame oil (per serving). Sprinkle a pinch of salt and pepper. Use tongs or your hands to toss the noodles.
2) Prepare all your veggies and set aside.
3) To prepare the Buddha bowls: Add your noodles to the centre, and arrange your veggies around. You can get creative with this!
4) I liked to prepare an extra sauce to drizzle on top as a dressing. In a squeeze bottle, I just combined 2 tbsp sesame oil, 3 tsp rice vinegar, and 3 tbsp soy sauce. I gave it a good shake, and just brought the squeeze bottle to the table with the Buddha bowls. That way everyone can use as much or as little dressing as they want.
5) ENJOY!

I think who ever said necessity is the mother of didn’t have this in mind haha 😂 I wanted a hot dog 🌭 and didn’t have a bun so the logical next step was of course the sweet potato 🍠🙃 Next problem. No ketchup or mustard but I did have salsa, guac’ and a box of daiya mac n cheese so used the sauce from that as a nacho sauce. Behold the abomination that is my lunch…I shouldn’t be left without adult supervision 😬😅

. . . . . UPDATE: Just finished eating this and it tasted fuckin’ amazing 😍🤤😍

New video! 

So i’m starting a new series called vegan on a budget! This is my intro video where I explain to you some basic tips I have if you’re on a tight budget and also introduce this new series! 

It will be a 10 part video series full of cheap, healthy and affordable vegan recipes for breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks and desserts. There are many videos to come, each video featuring a new, cheap and healthy vegan recipe.
I will also put the cost of the entire meal together and compare it to a normal meat based dish so you guys can see for yourselves that veganism is affordable! 

I hope you guys enjoy it and find it helpful! I will try to get 2 videos per week up for this series, if not more :)

There is a widespread myth that eating healthy is more expensive than eating junk. This is absolutely not true! If you purchase healthy whole foods and prepare them yourself you will save money and stay satiated longer than if you eat junk food!

🍅🌶😍🤤So what’s the first meal I go for when I get back form my foray to Canada🍁? A cheap as hell can on Lidl Tuscan bean soup and. A slice of toasty soda bread of course haha! 😅
Hey (what can I say) after experiencing the daylight robbery that is wholefoods for the past week my little heart yearned for something warm and tasty that costs less than 50p 😜
Having said that I did smuggle 5 boxes of diaya deluxe mac n cheese 🧀 😬

anonymous asked:

That last quote was kinda bullshit. Eating vegan is super cheap. In fact, meat eating is prevaleny pnly in wealthy countries. The most impoverished people in the world eat vegan js

Alright first of all I’m going to need to ask you what ‘wealthy countries’ means in this respect because unless you’re including Latin America and China as ‘wealthy’ then I’m going to have to disagree with you.

Secondly the big issue is that while eating vegan can be cheap, that isn’t always healthy.  Substituting bread for most of your diet isn’t healthy, and a lot of the veggies that would be a cornerstone of a healhty vegan diet are very perishable.

Now if you’re getting your food every day at a cheap market then yes a vegan diet is both cheap and healthy, but not everyone has that.

Send me a …

❈ - to learn about my character’s eating habits.

Answering for Bren’nar Tahjan.


Taj actually has pretty healthy eating habits, considering his situation. He learned when young to eat ‘cheap but healthy’ and has a good knack for using his credits wisely. His parents did their best to keep their kits healthy and well-fed so he knows what kind of food is good for him and how to find it.

He eats plenty of meat if he can get it and prefers several small meals daily instead of one or two big meals.

Yay! It’s Tuesday! That means my new YouTube video has been posted! In the first episode of Fab Foods I’ll show you how easy it is to make that tasty coconut green pasta I posted on Friday. Give it a watch!

Could you teach me how to cook? At the very moment I can make toasts

The frailty of humanity never ceases to amaze, and I am unsure how your lot continues to exist on this earth as a species when so many of you are subsisting off of mere badly burnt wheat and wheat by-products. I just want you to know, scarsbymonkeys, that you have personally offended me.

I don’t actually trust the Food Network, but here.

I do trust Cooking With Dog though. Strongly recommend.

Soup is one of the ultimate comfort foods. Learn it.

Not specifically related to cooking, but important. Other expiration date chart

Actually if you’re in charge of your own food, this is necessary knowledge.

It’s very western centric, but whatever.
