Welcome to our new series, Eat Better On Any Budget!
Every other week, we’re teaming up with Beth Moncel of Budget Bytes to share some of her favorite, most cost-effective recipes with our readers. This week, we wanted to share a few of Beth’s best recipes for meal prepping that are just as tasty without reheating. With the below recipes, you can plan a meal that will last you the entire week with minimal effort. (In case you missed it, Beth was also a guest on The Financial Confessions, so don’t miss it!)
Curry Chicken Salad with Sliced Apples and Crackers
Chicken salad gets a new look with warm spices, crunchy almonds, and sweet golden raisins. The light and sweet yogurt dressing pairs perfectly with tart green apple slices and a few crackers for scooping up the scrumptious salad.
This unconventional salad pairs roasted vegetables, hummus, quinoa, and a homemade Lemon Dill Tahini Dressing. 100% filling and flavorful, 0% animal ingredients.
Apple Dijon Kale Salad with Cheddar Cubes and a Roll
Kale makes the perfect meal prep salad green because it’s tough enough to hold up to several days of refrigeration and filling enough to make it a meal. Pair this hearty green salad with a few cubes of cheddar and a homemade roll for a complete, no-reheat meal.
You’ll make all of your co-workers jealous with this colorful and crunchy salad, drizzled with a homemade peanut lime dressing. Getting your daily dose of vegetables has never been easier.
Tuna and White Bean Salad with Tomatoes and Carrots
This lighter mayo-free tuna salad features white beans for extra fiber and protein, and a light olive oil and lemon dressing. Toss in a couple extra vegetables like sweet grape tomatoes and crunchy carrot sticks, and you’ve got an easy, well-balanced lunch.
