{Back to School} Feeding Yourself! 1


With school back in session, I’m sure there are lots of students out there who are already wondering how they are going to make their student loan budget stretch to the end of the semester. After you pay for tuition and books, the remaining funds are meant to pay for your living expenses for the next 3 months. With so many parties and events going on, it’s easy to overspend in your entertainment and find yourself a little short on food money.

While many students live on a ramen noodle or Kraft dinner diet, there are still a lot of healthy options that won’t break your meagre food budget.

While I’m no longer a student, I’m still a fan of finding low-cost recipes that still allow healthy eating. Check out some great links below to provide some meal inspiration! 

$5 Dinners (check out the Veggie ‘Fried Quinoa’ – it’s delicious!)

Pinterest is also a great source of inspiration for recipes!

Remember – just because you are on a budget doesn’t mean that you should sacrifice nutrition and taste. If you need more ideas, a quick Google search will provide you with the inspiration needed.

Do you have some go-to budget recipes or are you always trying something new? 


About Laura

Victoria born and raised, Laura is a rare breed (or so she hears). Quirky and unique, she likes being in control but can also be quite lazy. It really is a wonderful combination. A newlywed and mum to a pampered puggle, Laura is in her late 20's and just trying to figure out how to do it all. When she figures it out, she'll be sure to write a post on it. [br][br] Combining her enjoyment of trying out new recipes and DIY projects with her love of telling people what to do, blogging seems to be the perfect solution. Oh and since her career area is financial, she might as well write a few things down about her financial struggles and joys.

    Thanks for the websites! I find that budgetbytes is a great recipe site, too. She breaks down each recipe to the cent so it’s great for anyone who’s cash-strapped (and totally new at cooking because there are step-by-step pictures).
