With all the hustle and bustle of today's world, it seems that it can be really hard to actually find time to sit down and cook a healthy home cooked meal. While it seems easier to order in, carry out, or just pop in a frozen dinner, we all know that there are many health consequences that come with convenience foods. Not only are they more expensive (compared to actually making your own pizza or stir fry) but most delivery or fast foods are full of saturated fats, extra calories, sugar, and salt. With all these factors added up, then you will not only gain weight, but put your body at risk for heart disease, high blood pressure, and obesity. Today's post is about easy it is to make a fast and delicious meal at home.
|Sauteed green beans and black peppered crab|
Green Beans- $1.50 lb
For $3.20 you bought enough to make this delicious paleo crab stir fry for two! This is still cheaper than any side option that you'll find at any Asian restaurant.
Steak- $3.24 for a pack of 4 thin strips
White onion- 1 onion for around $.30
So for one person, this meal cost less than $2.00 to make!
Whole Grain Crust- package of 4- $2.00
Shredded Cheese- $2.48
Spinach- $1.28 a bunch
Bell Peppers- SALE $.50 each
Tomato Sauce- $1.08
So for $7.34 I bought enough ingredients to make 4 pizzas, or $1.83 each
