Every Monday I post my menu from the previous week, as well as the cost for some of my meals. This is to show how easy it is for a real, busy person to eat real food on a budget.
Last week I finally received my veggie twister that I’d bought on eBay quite a while ago. I was very excited and made a batch of zoodles (zucchini noodles) to eat with some homemade pasta sauce. They were about a million times better than ordinary pasta and I will definitely be making them again!
Looking at last week’s menu I also ate out quite a bit. Luckily it wasn’t all at restaurants – I went to friends’ houses a couple of nights, which was great.
Monday – Baked chicken with zucchini noodles and homemade capsicum pasta sauce.
Costs for Monday’s meal: 2 x organic chicken drumsticks (95c), 1 zucchini (75c), 1 red capsicum (30c), 2 cloves garlic (10c), 1/2 Tbsp olive oil (6c) and 1 Tbsp sunflower seeds (16c) = $2.32
Tuesday – Gluten free burger out with a friend.
Wednesday – Boiled eggs with bacon and roasted capsicum, red onion and zucchini.
Thursday – Slow cooked lamb shank marinated with lemon and oregano, and cooked with potato, eggplant and zucchini.
Friday – Nachos at the Eat Street Markets, followed by ice cream.
Saturday – Pot luck dinner party at a friend’s house. I took along some of my Paleo chocolate slice.
Sunday – Dumplings at a friend’s house.
