Budget shopping tips
I try to ensure all of the recipes I make are accessible to everyone. This recipe is no exception and can be made on a budget really easily.
Buying herbs and spices in bulk is something I really recommend. It can save a lot of money in the long term but also mean you never run out! I find putting them on “Amazon subscribe and save” helps too!
Frozen vegetables are nutritionally just as good as fresh usually so do keep an eye for those too to save money. If you have vegetables leftover pop them in the freezer so they do not get wasted.
Vegetable curry for lunch
If you are eating healthily then you may have difficulty in finding lunches for work.
This is just one of many amazing lunch ideas I have found so do check out my other recipes for more ideas.
All you need access to at work is a microwave and it will make the office smell amazing and make everyone jealous.
If you take lunch then you are so much less likely to buy food which inevitably will be less healthy. Taking a variety of food throughout the week to work keeps your lunchtimes interesting and stops you from getting bored.
Even if, like me, you work alone at home it can make such a difference having your food like this low-calorie vegetable curry already prepared for you. Why not give it a go and make sure you build a variety of lunches into your weekly meal plan.
Why you need vegetables to lose weight
Everyone knows vegetables are good for you, don’t they? They are healthy and filling for very few calories!
The best vegetables are those with low-calorie density. Basically, we are talking about healthier vegetables – potatoes don’t count but butternut squash is much healthier for example!
This means if you eat 100g of spinach, for example, it is just 23 calories and obviously, 100g of anything would fill you up significantly. On the other hand, 100g of crisps, which would be just as filling, is around 536 calories!
