Guide to Eating on a Budget



Saving money can be hard, especially if you are the kind of person who likes to treat yourself to delicious food. If you are trying to pair down your budget while still eating fresh and healthy meals that satisfy your appetite, this guide was custom made for you! At My Healthy Penguin, we specialize in helping people get access to delicious, healthy meals, and have gathered plenty of tips and tricks for eating on a budget over the years. 

Breakfast

You don’t have to think of breakfast as the most important meal of the day, but that doesn’t mean you should be skipping breakfast. Even a light breakfast can help you get the day started off right, helping you to be productive in the pre-lunch hours with more than just caffeine because coffee isn’t food. 

 

A few excellent budget-friendly healthy breakfast options include: 

  • Eggs: cook the day-of or boil ahead and keep in the fridge for a pack of protein on the go
  • Oatmeal: buy in bulk and enjoy super affordable and super hearty meals packed with dietary fiber and a few grams of protein
  • Bananas: grab on the run out the door and enjoy a gram of protein, some muscle-boosting potassium, and a generous dose of dietary fiber

Lunch

Lunch is the meal most people eat out, with busy mornings making it challenging to pack a healthy lunch and busy weeks making it difficult to plan ahead and grocery shop for regular lunches. Because of this, many of us find ourselves spending hundreds of dollars a month eating at restaurants for our lunches, negatively impacting both budget and health. 

 

Here are a few super-easy and affordable lunch options that suit any schedule or budget:

  • Fruits: stocking up on fruits is a great way to make sure you are getting your daily helping of fresh nutrients, and is a cheap way to add calories and color to your lunch
  • Avocado: it may seem overly simple, but bringing an avocado along for lunch can be a deliciously rich treat. Pack a spoon and a small container of salt and pepper, and you’re in for a flavorful, healthy, and super affordable lunch that comes in its own packaging
  • Lettuce Wraps: Lettuce wraps are a fast and easy way to eat your veggies and enjoy some protein. Pick up your favorite protein like turkey breast, marinated tofu, or hummus, wrap in a lettuce leaf with some cucumber and tomato, and you are ready to go

Dinner

At dinner time, you need a little more substance. There’s no better feeling than sitting down to a hot fresh meal, but cooking one at the end of the day can seem like an impossibility.
