I'm taking this moment to be a hipster food blogger and brag about dinner. And also, to illustrate that although most students are on a small budget, it's still possible for them to eat healthy meals if they invest a little time. Here we go!
Homemade hummus from dried chickpeas. No cans here! Time-consuming, but economical and so delicious. (recipe coming soon!)
Served with artisan challah toasts from a local bakery. I have no problem buying day-olds, as long as I use them quickly. Still tasty!
Sauteed veggies with whole wheat noodles and a homemade light white sauce. I had no idea it would
be so easy to make this stuff!
(Make a roux with a little olive oil, 1tbsp butter, and a few tbsp flour. Cook until tan in color, and thick. Add 1/2% milk and stir like crazy over medium heat. Add spices, have a little patience, and it'll be delicious!)
In my home, canned alfredo sauce will be no more!
Chris and I have also been playing with the juicer lately- my favorite combination so far is 2 apples, 2 large carrots, 1 celery stalk, and 2 oranges. Serve with ice. Delish!
