15 Healthy Recipes to Cook When You’re on a Budget

Sharing is caring!

I have compiled a list of some of my favorite healthy recipes for when you’re on a budget. Eating healthy is an important part of my life these days. It is something I have committed myself to for me and my family. In the process though, I need to make sure we aren’t breaking the bank to do it.

It’s not always easy to find recipes that you can use for breakfast and lunch, so I have included some of those in my list. If you are looking for more recipes for breakfast, lunch, or dinner, follow me on Pinterest here.

If you’re ready to add these recipes into your regular meal plan, read my beginner steps for meal planning here or my easy steps for meal prepping here.
