Healthy & Affordable Meal Ideas For The New Year!

Hello Sweet Friends!

I hope everyone is having an amazing New Year so far. Today, I wanted to share some of my favorite healthy and affordable recipes. One of my New Year’s Resolutions was to keep losing weight and try to hit my ultimate goal weight by June.

These recipes are some of my favorites. They are quick, easy and only require a few ingredients. My friend Whitley included one of her favorites as well! You can substitute and change ingredients to satisfy your own taste.

Cucumber

Pepperoncini Peppers

Italian Dressing

You can add or take away any ingredients. Additional ingredients could be feta cheese, red onions,  black olives, etc.  You can make this salad the night before just don’t add the dressing until you are ready to eat.

BLACK BEAN BURRITO BOWLS

Black Beans

Onion

Green Pepper

Tomato

Cheese

Green Olives

Salsa

Cilantro

Sauté the peppers and onions until done. Add in one can of black beans. I like to season with cumin. Add your beans to a bowl and top with your favorite ingredients! You can add in meat if you would like, ground beef/turkey/chicken would be awesome!

WHITLEY’S SAUSAGE, PEPPERS AND ONIONS

Turkey Sausage Links or Lean Turkey Kielbasa

Green Peppers

Onions

Sauté the sausage, peppers and onions in a nonstick pan or use a little olive oil and your favorite seasonings. Whitley uses Stonemill Essentials steak seasoning from Aldi. Cook until your peppers and onions are tender.

Whitley has an awesome post about shopping at Aldi, click here to check it out!

Her favorite way to serve this dish is with baked squash.

I hope you enjoyed! Let us know if you try out any of these recipes. I will continue to post healthy, affordable recipes throughout the New Year! Be sure to check out Whitley’s Blog for more home decor and lifestyle posts!

XOXO
