I’ve never eaten Parsnips before, and I’m sure this is not how you traditionally prepare them, but I like it. They are so cheap here you can almost not afford not to use them. I got a whole lb for only 0.30€.
Those are to die for. And they aren’t even that unhealthy, with close to no fat and fairly little added sugar. And they take less than 10 min to prepare. Now that they are selling all those huge christmas chocolate boxes I find this to be a better alternative if you’re craving something sweet. If you want to make it a bit sweeter you can add some chocolate drops and make sugary icing.
Don’t you just love pizza? I do. deemed unhealthy it’s actually not as bad as it’s reputation. The italian original pizza Margherita is just a very thin crust with tomato sauce and mozzarella. That won’t ruin your diet, however what a lot of us make out of it will. The thick, soft crust, sometimes stuffed with cheese or sausages, more fattening cheese, fattening toppings such as salami or bacon.
You can still make a fairly healthy meal out of pizza if you leave most of that stuff out
Halloween is coming up and all of us are probably going to interact with pumpkins one way or the other. When you prepare food that includes pumpkin don’t waste the seeds. They’re so easy to process and make a great snack
You can do the whole meal in roughly 6 min and serve as main dish or side dish, whatever you prefer.
There are very sophisticated versions of tzadziki out there, this one is not. It’s a very simple version of it but still tastes better and is healthier than the bought ones.
The dried fruits and nuts in homemade granola bars can often make them rather expensive and bought ones are full of sugar and chemicals. So I tried to come up with a healthy alternative.
Lovely dessert, but works well as lunch or snack too. If you feel like eating chocolate, eat this instead it’s really sweet but doesn’t contain as much fat or added sugar as chocolate
Not really. As you have probably already guessed there is no actual pasta in here. But it looks a bit like that, doesn’t it? And it’s still a great, filling meal.
This great. Nothing special but a quick an easy weeknight dinner. It’s also rather cheap. Serve with baked rosemary potatoes and you get a great dinner without much effort.
Quick and easy lunch or side dish. Tofu is always great because it is much cheaper than beef or pork
I put this into the German, Austrain&Swiss category, because Schnitzel is a pretty austrian dish, even though this has little to do with the original. The idea is simple. Instead using meat you just take slices of celery
Doesn’t even take the full 5 min, unless you sit there and stare at the microwave
If you don’t have a lot of time and still want to make a nice dessert, this is it. If you have some more time you can get fancier with this recipe also
I tried a different version of the traditional Mac and cheese here. I used cream cheese instead of butter and low-fat feta instead of cheddar to save some calories. It’s super simple and quick
This is a classic, but it’s so good and cheap. Most of all it’s simple, every idiot can do this and it doesn’t take much time while still tasting somehow “classy”
If you like hot dishes this is amazing. No fat, no sugar just veggies. I guess this wouldn’t really be a zero points dish because canned veggies do have some points, but I honestly don’t see why. Of course you have to be carefull with canned food, but the cans I got contained beans/peppers and salt only. I don’t see whats wrong with that. They are a great alternative if you don’t have a lot of time. I’m also a big fan canned, peeled tomatoes for i.e. tomato soups. It’s just so much faster and I suck at peeling them.
This is so fattening, they should serve it at McDonald’s. But it’s also sooooooooooo delicious
I literally lived off those the whole day today, but that’s alright because they contain almost everything you need during the course of a day.
Not really recipes, more ideas. I like to eat mashed potatoes, it’s quick, cheap and healthy, but it gets a bit boring sometimes so it’s nice to have several variations. Both variations are still cheap and healthy.
If you’re the kind of person that doesn’t really like to eat a lot of meat, like me,beans and lentils are great because they contain a lot of iron, potassium, zinc and protein. They are also a lot cheaper than meat, so I try to include them in my diet as often as I can and prepare them in various ways.
This kinda is an african dish. Obviously they have herbs and spices over there that are rather hard to get here, so I substituted most of them. You can really flavour them according to your own preferences.
Another one of my fathers favourite cakes, my Mom always used to do this for his birthday. This actually is quite healthy for a cake. There is almost no fat and lots of fruit, if you take whole grain flour it becomes even better. Of course it still contains lots of carbs, but hey it’s a cake.
You don’t have to use strawberries of course, you could also use green apples or kiwis with green jello or bananas and mangos with yellow jello ,just have fun with it
I just got back from volunteering in Africa with a lot of great recipes. This one is not very African though, I just made it because I was craving something healthy. Super cheap and super healthy dish
I tried something different here and it worked out quite well. The filling itself also doesn’t have any weight watchers points, which makes it a great low-fat alternative to meat
That’s how I like to do rosemary potatoes. Super simple to make and always turns out well. It’s not only very healthy but also rather cheap. With less than one 1 € , only a couple of cents for the dried rosemary and less than 1 € for the fresh one, it’s a great low-budget meal. Great Weight Watchers dish too, serve with vegetable and you’ll get a tasty low point, meal.
