The majority of us have a budget that restricts us and some have tighter ones than others. Common for almost everyone is that we cannot spend and spend because at some level our bank account will get empty. I will make a series on how to cut your budget and still not loose life quality. This is actually possible and I will present some ways that have been helpful for me in this series starting with food.
Eat healthy and yet cheap
It is very common to hear people saying that it is impossible to eat healthy on a tight budget. They make excuses that healthy food is so expensive and that all they can afford is a meal on McDonalds. This is not true for Norway though since McDonalds is quite expensive here but other places in the world I know that it is quite cheap. For me it is very important to look good and my shape will depend on what I put in my mouth. I have often eaten a lot of carbs like spaghetti and so on since it is cheap but I have just figured out a very easy, healthy and yet cheap way of cooking which is woking.
We got inspired by Johan’s dad to try out woking since he woks a lot. When we came to Trondheim we went straight to the store and bought a wok pan. I am amazed by how much we have saved since we started to wok and the meals have been very good as well. We are very lucky to have wok sauce for about $1 on the supermarket close to where we live. However, I don’t think that they are costly to make if you are not that fortunate.
Woking is all about using your imagination and almost every vegetable can be used as ingredients in your wok pan. You can combine it with egg noodles, fish or meat if you like to eat something additionally to the vegetables. We are super happy with our wok pan and the meals that we have made and I recommend you to try it out if you are not already a wok pan user.
Our favourite combination
We really like the combination of carrots, champignon, cucumber, paprika, broccoli as vegetables and we vary with meat, fish and chicken. We really like sweet sour and pang gang sauces. Enjoy!
