☆ Breakfast ☆ Peanut Butter and Jelly Oats Bar ☆
1.5 cup rolled oats
200-250g peanut butter (depends on how much peanut butter you like)
1 cup almond milk
3-5 tablespoons maple syrup. 3 tablespoons may not be sweet enough for some! : D
1 teaspoon cinnamon powder
1/8 teaspoon salt if your peanut butter has no added salt
140 g Strawberry / Grape / Blueberry Jam
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
(I also excluded coconut oil in this recipe. You can add a tablespoon if you wish)
Mix all the wet ingredients together, then add the dry ingredients. Mix it well, and pour it into a can. Then add some jam! You can add as much jam as you want, or as little as you want.
☆ Breakfast ☆ Tuna Salad – $ 2 per night Portion ☆
1 can of chickpeas
2-3 bell peppers
1 can of tuna (450 g)
Mix the tuna with two tablespoons of olive oil, a little salt, pepper and paprika. I added quite a bit of paprika because I like it. Adapt to your taste!
Sundried tomatoes are the key to this meal (IMO). The salad is super tasty with it, but sun-dried tomatoes are not the cheapest option. I wanted to use some kind of connections that I didn’t add, so that’s fine! 🙂
☆ Dinner ☆ Chicken and rice – Less than $ 2 per Portion
Boil a cup of brown rice with 2 cups of water for approx. 30 minutes
For the chicken portion:
800 g of chicken thighs
2 cloves of garlic
Cook onions and garlic first. Add the pepper and cayenne pepper. Then add the chicken! Now add more peppers if you like, oregano, salt and pepper. I just eyeball it. It doesn’t have to be super accurate.
When the chicken is fine and brown, add a can of tomatoes. Then allow it to boil for about 30 minutes to evaporate the liquid.
Cook some broccoli in the meantime! You can cook or stir it.
