Budget Bytes – My New Favorite Budget Recipe Resource

Hola, fellow FlatBrok-ers! (I’m trying out a different greeting. How is it going over?)

Since the new year, I have been able to stick to my resolution of working out at least 3 days a week (yay me!) and have mostly been able to keep up with eating in a healthful way. It’s likely we all slip off the bandwagon. Maybe it’s because some healthy foods seem inconvenient or maybe you think you can’t eat healthy on a budget.

Well these are valid excuses no more!

About a week and a half ago I stumbled upon a wonderful blog run by a lovely lady named Beth. That blog is Budget Bytes. And let me tell you, it was love at first click.

The site is chock full of very well organized recipes for every craving. You want budget breakfast recipes? Beth’s got ’em. Indian dishes? Beth’s got ’em. Vegetarian and vegan recipes? She has them too.

And what sets this blog ahead of other frugal blogs is the fact that she breaks down the price of every ingredient, each serving, as well as the entire recipe! Budget Bytes is focused filling, healthful, (and lately sriracha-coated) budget recipes, which is great since the boyfriend and I are trying to eat a diverse yet healthy and satisfying diet. I guess we’re picky like that.

If you want a more healthful diet than the stuff that you buy at the college food court (hello, sodium and cholesterol) then check this website out. To get you started, check out my favorite recipe: the Honey Sriracha Chicken Thighs. The boyfriend even called them “badass”.


Til next time!
