Healthy ~300 Calorie Meals:
One Eye-d Potato
- 1 Potato, scrubbed and stabbed (multiple times)
- 1 Egg
- 2 ounces of sliced turkey
- 3/4 cup of canned green beans
Stab the potato a few times and then microwave it for about 2 minutes. Carefully take the potato out and create a cavity in the potato by scooping out the insides (without burning yourself). Crack the egg, and pop it back into the microwave for a few minutes.
When I can only really afford to spend $25 dollars a week, my recipes might seem plain… I’ve been going through the same giant bag of potatoes all year and some of them are growing in the cupboard!
When it comes to cheap, healthy, AND tasty meals though, I cannot emphasize this more: a little bit of herbs go a LONG way.
Just adding some rosemary, basil, or a little bit of salt and pepper to meals like this make them suddenly taste gourmet :)
(Also note, this meal is a little under 300 calories, so I’d recommend not starving yourself now and bingeing later, and instead helping yourself to a piece of fruit following the meal for dessert!)
