Wraps are one of my favourites, especially as the weather gets warmer 🖤 Quick and easy, you can throw in your fridge leftovers, and great to take out with you if you know you're going somewhere where healthy options might not be available 🥑🍗🍃
I used to think that eating healthy would cost more, but as long as you can rewire your mentality and find wallet-friendly recipes you enjoy, you quickly realise it's not as difficult as first assumed. This #thursdaythought comes from a Twitter conversation re: #britainsfatfight where I saw a huge section of people saying it's "too expensive" to eat healthy, which simply isn't true!

What foods are getting your pulse rate up? ☺️ We had homemade baked beans with grilled polenta for dinner tonight and it went down a treat with the family. Best of all it can be made for under £5 with organic ingredients. We use @sumawholefoods chopped tomatoes and polenta, and @tescofood organic cannellini beans. The trick is to blitz your tomato sauce smooth before adding the beans. #bakedbeans

Ok vegans and vegetarians, I hadn’t forgotten you. I’m tired of boring vegetables and it’s a shame that most places serve pathetic veggies because they deserve better than that. I’m going to be posting a lot of veggie and bean dishes that are delightfully different. My grandpa was Hungarian and I think that’s why I’ve always loved smoked paprika. So here’s Hungarian Cauliflower, and Smoked Paprika Quinoa. This is such a filling and healthy meal. For the cauliflower: mix 1/4 cup olive oil, 1/2 tsp salt, 1 tsp paprika, 1/2 tsp ground cumin, 1/4 tsp ground turmeric, 1/8 tsp chili powder all in a 8X8 dish. Cut a head of cauliflower into florets and toss in the spice in the dish until evenly coated. Roast at 450F until tender, stirring as needed. Credit: Courtney Stultz. Now for our unusual and wonderful quinoa: 4 tsp olive oil, 1 pound sliced mushrooms, 3 garlic cloves minced, 3 Tab tomato sauce, 2 Tab smoked paprika, 2 Tab lemon juice, 1 tsp ground cumin, 1/2 tsp salt, 1 cup vegetable broth, 3/4 cup quinoa (I like red, but any color), fresh or cooked spinach if desired. In saucepan, cook mushrooms in oil until tender, add garlic and cook one minute more. Add everything but spinach and quinoa. Bring to a boil, then add quinoa. Reduce heat, simmer until quinoa is tender. Serve over spinach.

I hate food being wasted so I like to use up leftovers in soups, sauces and pasta bakes, or just freeze for later.

Tonight, it's spicy cheese, ham, chorizo & veg toasties on crusty bread with a crunchy salad.

I've decided to go through with my challenge. I am not to buy food except at the produce shop. My partner is on board, but they may want to make a few exceptions for things they can't really do without such as bread and lemonade syrup. I myself might make a little exception at the vegan fair on sunday, because if there's a vegan fair in your hometown you can't not go.

I'll be posting highlights on here, but if you want to keep up with it all, check out my blog. The link is in my bio.

The picture shows how full my fridge is now. Theres bread, real meat, fake meat, prepped meals and leftovers, veggies and more. I wonder how it will look in 2 weeks.

Sharewoods New Madras Recipe reduced to £1 in the Co-op @coopukfood & I used a 50p off any cooking sauce voucher so purchased for 50p! 😋🍲

This fish curry is so quick to whip up and full of delicious flavour. We always keep grated ginger in the freezer, frozen into little foil tablespoon pouches. We keep cup up lemongrass in the freezer too in a snap lock bag. You could do the same with chopped garlic. This all helps to get big flavour into your dishes really quickly. 🥘fry a sliced onion, 1 tbsp fresh grated ginger, 3 cloves of crushed garlic, a stalk of lemongrass (chopped into quarters) and half a jar of curry paste in some coconut oil for 2 mins. 🥘add a tin of coconut milk and 700g of skinless white fish fillets (I used frozen hoki fillets and they were still frozen) and bring to a boil before reducing to a simmer. Let it simmer for 10 mins till fish is cooked.
🥘add a bag of baby spinach leaves and season with lime juice, fish sauce and sugar if you want to (just try and get a nice balance of sweet, sour and salty)

Tuna Mornay about to go in the oven :-) kids looking forward to this one!

Authentic pork carnitas! Don’t give up on me, vegans. Your post is tomorrow. 😁 So this easy crowd pleaser will make you chef of the year, and only we need to know that it took you minutes to put it in the crock pot, and it did all the slaving away! You’ve got to give this one a try guys, it’s amazing. Ok let’s get started: 4 pound pork loin, 3 garlic cloves minced, 2 tsp olive oil, 1/2 tsp each salt and pepper, 1 1/2 cups fresh cilantro chopped, 1 cup salsa (I like hot), 1/2 cup chicken broth, 1/2 cup gold tequila, 2 big jalapeños chopped, corn tortillas, cheese and toppings you like. Ok, rub the roast with the oil, lay it in the bottom of the crock pot. Sprinkle with salt, pepper, and chopped garlic. Pour salsa, tequila, and chicken broth around it. Top with jalapeños and cilantro. Cover and cook on low 6-8 hours. I like to remove it about 30 minutes before it’s done, shred the meat, then return it to the cooker for the last bit of time. Then it soaks up all that amazing sauce. Serve on tortillas with cheese and everything else you like. Don’t count on leftovers! I use corn tortillas because I’m gluten free, but flour tortillas are great if you can eat those. #glutenfreerecipes #glutenfrei #cookathome #budgetcooking #healthyeatinglifestyle #crockpotrecipes #authenticmexicanfood #yum #dinnerideas #easydinner

👩‍👧‍👦The A-team (kids) are ready to dash out the door with our snacks in hand, all prepared at home. My husband and kids, ok and me love packet snacks but i tend to steer clear of those isles at the supermarket for money saving and health/weight management. Winter is coming and I'd love to avoid the spare tyre that seems to appear so easily in those cooler months ❤️🤗⛄️

The best thing about a gammon (pork, ham, beef) joint: biksemad! With Worcester sauce and a fried egg, naturally. #leftovers #whatsfordinner #whatsfortea #budgetcooking #weeknightdinner

When you've been trying to be good but have no food in house and no money until Friday ... spicy beans and naan it is #usingcupboardfood #budgetcooking. #atleastbeansarefreefood #spicy #chillinaan #whatsinthefreezer #needsomepennies

Roasted winter vegetables: guys, this is one of my favourite recipes. It’s smells so amazing while cooking, and tastes even better. You never thought humble roots could be so amazing!
1 whole garlic bulb/3 Tab. Olive oil/1 pound fresh beets/3 parsnips/2 small rutabagas/1 turnip/4 large carrots/2 red onions, cut into wedges/1 tsp salt/half tsp fresh ground pepper/3 bay leaves/half cup dry sherry/half cup vegetable broth/2 Tab butter (optional). Remove papery outer skin from garlic but DO NOT peel or separate cloves. Very carefully cut the top off (just a small slice to open up the top of each clove). Brush with half tsp of olive oil and wrap entire bulb in foil. Peel beets, parsnips, rutabagas, turnip and carrots. Cut all into 2 inch pieces. Toss in a large bowl with onions, salt, pepper, bay leaves and remaining oil. Transfer to 2 greased 15X10X1 inch pans. Place wrapped garlic bulb on top of one pan. Bake at 400 degrees F for 35 mins., stirring once. Drizzle wine and broth over vegetables, bake another 20 mins or until vegetables are tender, stirring as needed. Remove foil from garlic, squeeze out softened garlic over top of veg. (I like to gently toss it all to distribute the garlic). Dot with butter and serve. Yum! Adapted from Julie Butler. Bonus tip: the way we roasted garlic here is also my favourite way to make garlic toast. Thinly spread the roasted softened garlic on toast with salt and butter (or butter substitute if you don’t do dairy). It’s AMAZING compared to dried garlic that most people use, and really good in the winter to prevent colds. It’s the perfect accompaniment to an authentic Italian meal. #glutenfreerecipes #healthyeatinglifestyle #vegan #cookathome #glutenfrei #budgetcooking #yum #veganrecipes #vegetarian

Awesome quinoa BLT bowl. 1 cup quinoa cooked however you like (I like to cook mine in vegetable broth for flavour)
1/4 cup olive oil 2 Tab minced fresh basil. 2 Tab white wine vinegar. 1 Tab lemon juice. 4 large eggs, poached. 8 oz. cherry tomatoes. 3 cups arugula. 1 ripe avocado, sliced. 4 bacon strips, cooked and crumbled. Mix 3 Tab olive oil, basil, 1 Tab vinegar, and lemon juice into the cooked quinoa. In a large skillet, heat the remaining olive oil and cook tomatoes until they begin to burst, add arugula and heat until just wilted. To serve, divide quinoa evenly among 4 bowls. Add tomatoes, arugula, avocado, and crumbled bacon. Top each with an egg. Credit: Elizabeth Larsen. This was so tasty and healthy and unlike some meals, I wasn’t hungry again in an hour :). Tell me what you think! #healthyeatingideas #healthyeatinglifestyle #glutenfrei #glutenfreerecipes #glutenfree #lunchideas #budgetcooking
