Carol McFadden’s Recipes On a Budget

  1. 1. CAROL MCFADDEN’S RECIPES ON A BUDGET People often cite money as one of the main reasons why they don’t keep up with their health goals and Carol McFadden can understand this. To a point. While there’s no denying that some of the more spectacular nutrient heavy ingredients can take a serious toll on your budget, ‘expensive’ only goes so far as an excuse for unhealthy habits. So, without further ado, here are some of Carol McFadden’s tried and tested recipes. No quinoa needed.
  2. 2. Gumbo • Anything that can be cooked in a pot or a slow cooker will be a life saver when you’re trying to earn the most benefits with the least amount of effort. For this reason, Carol McFadden’s number one pick for a budget health dish is gumbo. • It’s incredibly easy to pack it full of protein. Substitute meat for black beans if you are vegetarian and there you go. Healthy, easy to make in bulk and delicious! • Don’t forget to add in the so called holy trinity of Cajun cooking: celery, bell peppers and onions.
  3. 3. Stuffed Potatoes • People automatically dismiss the humble potato as being unhealthy when the real problem is the way it’s cooked. Yes, fries are unhealthy, but so is everything else that’s been deep fried. • The Carol McFadden solution? Bake once, cut in half, mash the inside with a fork in order to make space for the rest of the ingredients, bake again until everything is delicious. • Some potential fillings: cottage cheese (excellent source of protein), broccoli, eggs, asparagus and ham.
  4. 4. Dhal • For those of you who are spice-inclined, this Indian staple is sure to meet all your requirements. • It has a high content of oil that could easily tip it into the unhealthy side of things so replace normal vegetable oil with olive oil where possible. It can also keep hunger at bay for longer than some other options, so you only need a small portion to get you through the day. • Lentils are the chicken of the vegetable world – packed with protein. And it will also give a chance to use one of Carol McFadden’s favourite health staples: ginger.
