People think that eating healthy is always time consuming, expensive, and difficult. To you people: HA!
I am going to be driving back to Florida on Tuesday (3 day drive 🙁 ), so that means I have to get rid of everything in he fridge so it doesn’t spoil. Well…..it is almost all gone. I barely have anything left in the fridge! So for dinner, I made use of a potato and two canned foods.
- 1 potato wrapped in aluminum foil
- 1 can tomatoes (chopped, whole, pureed, doesn’t really matter)
- 1 can beans (I used black beans, but garbanzo, pinto, kidney, ex. would work, too)
- leftover toppings of choice, spices for vegetarian chili (I used a versatile chili powder)
Scrub potato thoroughly because the skins are good to eat. A lot of the fiber and nutrients come in the potato’s skin. Wrap the potato in aluminum foil and bake for 45 min+ (depends on size of potato) at 425*.
While the potato bakes, heat the tomatoes and beans in a saucepan with the spices (if using).
When the potato is done, simply pour some of that homemade vegetarian chili on top, and eat it right out of the foil-hobo style!
Scrumptious, filling, inexpensive, easy, quick, and fun to eat!
Thought-provoking, mind-prodding question of the day:
What is your favorite inexpensive food or meal? I know that oatmeal is pretty cheap, but it is chock full of nutrients!
