BUDGET Meal Prep | HEALTHY AND CHEAP | Meal Prep On a College Budget
☆ Breakfast ☆ Peanut Butter and Jelly Oats Bar ☆
1.5 cup of rolled oats
200-250g of Peanut Butter (Depends on how much peanut butter you like)
1 cup of Almond Milk
3-5 Tablespoons of Maple Syrup. 3 Tablespoons may not be sweet enough for some! 😀
1 teaspoon of Cinnamon Powder
1/8 Teaspoon of salt if your peanut butter doesn’t have any added salt
140g of Strawberry/Grape/Blueberry Jam
1/2 teaspoon of Baking Powder
(I’ve also excluded coconut oil in this recipe. You can add a tablespoon if you wish to)
Mix all the wet ingredients together then add the dry ingredients. Mix it well and pour it in a tin. Then add some jam! You can add as much jam as you like, or as little as you like.
☆ Lunch ☆ Tuna Salad – $2 per serving ☆
1 can of chickpeas
2-3 Capsicums (Bell Peppers)
1 can of Tuna (450g)
Mix tuna with two tablespoons of olive oil, some salt, pepper and paprika. I added quite a lot of paprika cause I like it. Adjust to you liking!
Sundried tomatoes is the key for this meal (IMO). The salad is super tasty with it but sundried tomatoes are not the cheapest option. I would be using some sort of dressings I didn’t add that so it’s fine! 🙂
☆ Dinner ☆ Chicken and Rice – Less than $2 per serving ☆
Cook a cup of brown rice with 2 cups of water for around 30 minutes
For the chicken part:
800g of Chicken Thigh
1/2 An onion
2 cloves of garlic
Cook the onions and garlics first. Add some paprika and cayenne pepper. Then add the chicken! Now add more paprika if you wish to, oregano, salt and pepper. I just eyeball it. It doesn’t have to be super precise.
Once the chicken is nice and brown, add a can of tomatoes. Then let it cook for around 30 minutes for the liquid to evaporate.
Cook some broccoli in the mean time! You can boil or stir fry it.
