Healthy Meals on a Budget

About a month ago, I had about $30 to spend on groceries for a week and that was it. So I tried to come up with the healthiest meals I could make on my budget.

I used a cast-iron skillet to cook all the pan-food for extra iron. I used olive oil in cooking as well.

I use lots of sea salt or Himalayan Pink Salt when making my sweet potatoes and eggs. It’s important to get enough salt.

I felt so good after 5 days on this diet! So there must be something balanced about it… :-) Let me know if you try it out too.

There were some days when I only had maybe three of the five items because I was full enough. Go with the flow! For my juice, I used the Trader Joes Organic Blueberry/Grape/Apple juice and mixed in about 2 tablespoons of chia seeds for blood sugar control and protein/omegas.

I would actually recommend NOT having the chocolate coconut milk every day. I found it was a bit too high caffeinated to have that much chocolate daily, other than that it is a pretty good diet for a week at a time! That would help the budget too because I actually already had the chocolate at my house so I didn’t factor it into the $30!
