Tasty Student meals that don’t cost an arm and a leg. Part 1

Isn’t that just the best thing you’ve ever layed your eyes upon?

Stir-fry Anything

  • Chop pepper, onions, mangetout, broccoli (anything green) and start to fry in a pan/Wok in a bit of olive oil.
  • Chop and add your meat/fish to the pan. Most popular is chicken breast, but beef or pork works just as well. Brown meat. A personal favourite is king prawn which is something else with garlic and soy. (Prawns only need heated if you buy them pink)
  • When your veg/meat looks cooked, add your noodles to a saucepan of simmering water for 3 minutes. Whilst noodles are cooking add some garlic (I use Lazy Garlic) and soy sauce to taste to the main pan/wok. Use a small teaspoon or if you’re hardcore two. Garlic and Soy used this way is seriously the nicest thing I’ve ever tasted.
  • Combine, add more soy if required. Eat. A standard packet of chicken breasts will do 2 meals so you can box up the second portion for another night! It’s also low in calories and basically everything else, especially if you use prawns or lean pork.

 

Hangover Bacon and Eggs

  • A George Foreman or similar griller is ideal for this.
  • Bacon rashers on grill, whilst cooking, beat 2 eggs with a bit of milk and butter in a cereal bowl.
  • Put some brown/white bread or even better a bagel in the toaster in preparation.
  • Put the eggs in the microwave for 30 seconds at a time, stirring in between, until they look cooked (either slightly runny or completely cooked doesn’t matter).
  • Butter toast/bagel, add bacon with lots of ketchup, serve eggs to the side.
  • Serve with a massive cup of coffee for extra hungover goodness.
  • When you get this in Canadian bars they give you maple syrup on your bacon which as weird as it sounds is absolutely amazing; but obviously not too healthy.

 

 

Lunches

  • Banana chopped on wholewheat toast with a bit of honey on top. Cheap, healthy and a good energy kick.
  • Beans on toast (obviously)
  • Scrambled Eggs/Omelette on toast (buy a dozen eggs, stick it in the fridge and it’ll last ages)
