It’s got to be said again, making 3 healthy meals a day on a $6.65 budget is not easy especially since I never seem to have enough time to eat properly during the days. Like everyone else on the challenge, I will just have to make it work. Today went well overall. Ate three meals and snacked healthy.
I’m away from home for much of the day and if I don’t cook in the evening then, there’s just not enough to eat. Therefore, no matter how late or how tired I am when I get home, I have to cook dinner and make sure there’s enough for tomorrow’s lunch.
It’s a darn good thing that I don’t have to care for elderly parents or children. I suspect that would go hungry.
Breakfast – HK style milky tea and multigrain toast.
Lunch – Bolognese & tortellini (leftover from yesterday)
Dinner – Puree of collard greens (spinach substitute) & paneer, aloo gobi and chapati
Snack – Mixed bag of dried cranberries, raw almonds and toasted cashews
Second day of the challenge and there’s no dessert – which I am starting to miss. I’m not much of a dessert maker and have always been better at creating savoury dishes. However, I do have sweet tooth. Since I don’t drink alcohol I won’t be missing that. Which can be expensive, so that definitely works in my favour.
Looking forward to tomorrow!
