$100 Budget Meal Prep Challenge

This $100 Budget Meal Prep was definitely challenge, but I have put together a whole weeks worth (Monday to Friday) of food for two! If you’ve been following me for awhile now, you may have seen my popular Meal Prep Guide for Beginners guide. Today I’m sharing something similar, but with a little bit of a twist! I think you guys are going to love these recipes I have rounded up here!

Apple Pie Slow Cooker Oatmeal 

There are so many quick on the go breakfast options like overnight oats, chia pudding, green smoothie and the list goes on. But sometimes (especially in the fall or winter) you just want a breakfast that is comforting and warming like a bowl of creamy oatmeal right?

Roasted Butternut Squash Soup

A roasted flavourful and smooth golden butternut squash soup topped with crispy chickpea croutons and cheesy kale chips.

 Kale Salad

Ingredients:

  • 1 bunch of chopped kale
  • 2-3 medium sized shredded carrots
  • 2-3 sticks of chopped celery
  • 1 cucumber

Directions:

Combine ingredients in a large bowl. Toss all the ingredients together, and top with your favourite salad dressing!

Carrot Cake Muffins

These sweet and perfectly spiced carrot cake muffins are made in one easy bowl and are healthy enough to eat for breakfast or an afternoon snack!

Simple Greek Salad

A simple chopped greek inspired salad packed with plant based protein from chickpeas, tossed on top of romaine with a simple seasoned vinaigrette. I kept things even simpler and within budget my omitting the chickpeas and olives.

Roasted Herb Chicken with spices

This roasted chicken pairs well with the greek salad recipe for an easy, quick dinner! Good quality spices really add to the flavour when they are roasting.

Ingredients:

5 chicken breasts
9 chicken thighs
For chicken breasts:
1 lemon zested
2-3 tsp Za’atar or italian spices
Sea salt and black pepper to taste
For chicken thighs:
1/2 tsp curry powder
1/2 tsp garam masala
Sea salt and pepper to taste

Directions:
Pre-heat oven to 400°F. Lay the chicken breasts and thighs out on a sheet pan. I like to use parchment paper so that it is easy to clean up afterwards. Drizzle olive oil over the meat, then add spices, salt and pepper.

Bake for 40 min, turning them half way through until golden and cooked through.

Creamy Chickpea Curry

This Creamy Chickpea Curry cooked in a tomato coconut base is so flavourful and hearty!  All it takes is one pot and it’s ready in 10 minutes.
