Easy Meals on a Budget

Meal prep helps you control what you put into your body. Planning meals ahead can help you source the quality of your meals and freshness of your food. Here are some meal ideas to get you started.

Menu Breakdown

Breakfast Recipe One: Bacon Egg Cups and Roasted Tomato

 If you’re looking for a low carb and keto-friendly breakfast to start your day, then try these bacon egg cups. It is a delicious recipe that you can make ahead and reheat for busy mornings. The smoky flavor of the bacon with the freshness of a roasted tomato makes for a delicious bite.

Breakfast Recipe Two: Corned Beef and Potato Hash

Here’s a great way to use up leftover corned beef. Easily roast diced potatoes on a sheet pan in the oven and mix it together with the corned beef and fresh onions. Feel free to serve a fried egg on top for extra protein.

Lunch Recipe One: Fish and Kale Chips with Potato Wedges

If you’re into the superfood kale, but want to enjoy it in other ways than a salad, try roasting them in the oven and make kale chips. We also used corn starch for our cod batter to keep the meal prep simple. You still get a nice golden brown crust on the outside without the mess of your usual batter mix to make fish and chips.
