Low Budget Homemade Granola Bars

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.

Healthy Dessert Wraps

 

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

Tuna Burger Patties


The idea is quite simple instead of using high fat and often low quality ground beef you use tuna. You can make actual burgers out of them or just have them with veggies and potatoes as I did.

Honey – Chilli Tofu with Sesame

Quick and easy lunch or side dish. Tofu is always great because it is much cheaper than beef or pork

All natural & Vegan apple pie cookies

Granted, they are not as good as real apple pie, but considering how much of the unhealthy stuff you leave out, they’re a worthy alternative. Almost no fat or added sugar.

Celery Schnitzel

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

No Sugar, No Butter, No Flour Banana Breakfast Muffins


They are a bit more chewy than normal muffins, so you have to eat them slower and get full sooner

Carrot Potato Soup

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”

Banana – Cherry Breakfast Milkshake

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.

Bean Pancakes

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.

Rosemary Potatoes


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.

Alaska Backpack Bread

The upsides of this bread are that it can be stored fairly long and is very nutritious. It’s a bit sweet but not so sweet that it would be weird to eat cheese of meat on it.And of course that it’s delicious and very fluffy

Pasta Primavera


I’ve done this for a party and it was a great success. This recipe gives a huge portion though, so needless to say if you’re only cooking for a small group, make a smaller potion. It makes a very good party dish though because you don’t need to it serve hot, lukewarm or cold will also do, and you can store it in the fridge overnight.

Strawberry – Kiwi Smoothie

Strawberries were on sale this week, so I bought 3 lb of them. I also made delicious Strawberry – Chilli Spring Rolls out of them. The recipe will follow tomorrow.
This is a fairly thin smoothie but still pretty good. With 0 Weight Watchers points it’s also very healthy and contains not too many calories.

Mixing your own Muesli – Summer Muesli and Protein Muesli

I just recently ran over some websites that offer you to mix your own muesli online and they’ll send it to you in less than a week. I certainly liked the idea. Afterall I often bought muesli that I thought was perfect, if only it didn’t contain raisins, bananas or whatever.
So I went online and created my own Muesli at http://www.mymuesli.com but didn’t order because it costs 11,60€ per lb. That’s insane and I thought I can do this way better and way cheaper at home.

Apple Fritters

I just finished my first week working at Burger King and I absolutely hate it. Can’t wait until summer is over. The amounts of waste only this one store produces is insane. And the food is flabby and gross. I believe I’ll never feel the urge to eat fast food again.
So anyways I decided I should make a couple of “healthy fast food recipes” starting with this one. It’s not really fast to prepare but tastes like (good) fast foo while still being quite healthy.

Green Mango Smoothie


I love this, it’s refreshing and low on calories, while it still tastes amazing. It certainly has a freakish color too.

Mixed Berry Smoothie

Smoothies are good for really everything. Breakfast, Lunch, Dessert or just in between they’re always great. This recipe is nothing special just a basic berry smoothie, as I always do them.
It’s quite heavy for a smoothie so definitely more suitable as full breakfast or lunch.
For Weight Watchers, my Smoothies had 3 points (1 for yoghurt, 1 for milk and 1 for beetroot juice) and I made 2 servings out of it. If you want to add oatmeal and raisins you will be roughly at 6 points
