BUDGET Meal Prep | HEALTHY AND CHEAP | Meal Prep On a College Budget


[Music] so today we have a meal prep video it’s super easy super simple and super affordable it’s only gonna take maybe an hour at most two hours if you’re slow for a breakfast it’s only gonna cost around like I have no idea but it’s probably like 20 cents per serving it was so cheap so I didn’t bother calculating it but it was around like three to four dollars for a massive amount of servings so you can have it for breakfast and also for snacks and for lunch is about two dollars per serving it is really tasty and nutritious really really healthy and for dinner it’s less than two dollars per serving so it’s really affordable as well and I believe that the prettiest in America is even cheaper so you can get it down even lower in the UK in the US so this meal part is great if you’re on a budget but of course if you’re hungry in between meals have some snacks um have your breakfast or snacks or nuts as snacks or what’s great for snacks like fruits like banana banana is really affordable in Australia berries are in season in Australia right now but I think figs are in season in Europe right now so bloody hell I love beings so I’m gonna stop talking right now and let’s just see what I’ve got for you guys so here’s all the ingredients we need for our breakfast recipe we also need some maple syrup but you can also use honey as well just mix all the ingredients together it really really doesn’t matter just add in a coconut oil which is optional you can add more peanut butter instead peanut butter almond milk and mix them all together so as always as that measurements are in the description box also to sweeten it up you can add three tablespoons of maple syrup or more if you want it sweeter at some old bills salt half a teaspoon of baking powder and mixed it well so now pour it into a square tin which I obviously didn’t have because I couldn’t find it but apparently it’s gone so I had to make a little bit more just to fit into this this tray this tin I don’t know what you call it but yeah now you can add some Jam I’ve added quite a lot and this Jam doesn’t contain any refined sugar so it’s better then preheat the oven 480 degrees Celsius and then chuck it in the oven for 30 minutes so that’s it this is great for breakfast next whatever you want to do with it it is only about $4 for all of these for Australian dollars so I think that’s really really affordable of course you can find cheaper alternatives for this ingredients as well as just using what I had in the pantry so you can refrigerate it for a couple of days and warm up just before you want to eat it or you can have a cold which is how I like it so for lunch we are going to make this amazing tuna salad it tastes so good this is going to be $2 per serving and it is super nutritious as well so yeah I gave my friend some of these because I was leaving the country and he legit thought that there’s two servings on each of this job because this is a 1 litre job so it is quite a big one so if this is too much for you then just reduce the amount of vegetables so first since this is called a tuna salad you can need a can of tuna it is going to be around three to four dollars depending on the brands you can also use this little ones which is always really cheap in Australia because they are always on special so if you can’t be part of making a tuna then buy these but it is definitely gonna increase your budget we need some sell leaves to the three capsicum or bell peppers I think that’s how most of you guys call it some tomatoes and this is dependent on a budget I also really recommend you try some sun-dried tomatoes because this is the key to the salad it makes so tasty we need a can of chickpeas this is optional you can use any sort of beans or you can just skip it some carrots next we are going to need some salt pepper paprika and also some olive oil for the tuna bit mix all the ingredients together I just eyeball it because this is based on you know your personal preference now chop up all the ingredients and stuff it in the jar now I’m going to start with some chickpeas then some capsicum carrots tomatoes salad leaves and tuna just layer them and honestly I don’t do this normally because that takes a lot of time I just made it look pretty for the video in the photos so that it looks more you know presentable okay but seriously you can just chuck it all into the jar and top it off with some tuna so now for some dressing you can use lemon juice and olive oil as a dressing but because I’ve added some sun-dried tomato it was really really tasty and the tuna was really tasty as well so I didn’t think I need any more so in terms of storing I normally like to store it in the fridge for only up to three days at most up to three days because Salus normally tastes funny after like two days so yeah I normally wouldn’t make so many in one go so maybe make them twice a week for freshness so for dinner we are going to have some chicken and it is so easy to make this chicken recipe all we need are the ingredients here the chicken thighs around $8 but killer you only need around 800 grams to a cure if you want more chicken so obviously the cost of the chicken and vegetables are quite dependent on where you’re from and in my opinion Australian foods are pretty expensive and yeah brown rice and everything else are barely anything is probably going to be totaling three dollars for all so this is going to add up to around ten dollars for five meals so around two dollars for each meal so that’s super affordable or Australians than this anyway first cook a cup of brown rice just follow the instructions on the package it’s really really simple cut up chicken thighs into big pieces or small pieces it’s personal preference then we are going to start cooking you can exclude onions and garlic’s if you’re allergic to them but we are going to cook those first and add some paprika cayenne pepper then add a chicken thigh some Oregon I salt and pepper or after you brown the chicken add a can of tomatoes so this is gonna turn quite liquidy because of the chicken and also the tomatoes so you’re gonna need 30 minutes for it to thicken up so while you’re waiting for that cook some broccoli in hot water and once that’s done you can put everything together it’s really really simple so yeah I really like the color of this meal again this is super affordable healthy and really really tasty so to store them you can store them in the freezer or just in the fridge I normally like to store too in the freezer because I don’t think that tastes that great after three days so three in the bottom of the fridge and two in the freezer so that’s about it guys I hope you enjoyed today’s budget meal prep video
