What are some healthy simple recipes?

I have $400 to spend for the next 4 months on food. I am planning to eat healthy with vegetables, fruits, and avoiding the junk food such as canned food etc… I don’t know many recipes, the ones i know require a lot of time and money, which i don’t have. I am looking for simple healthy recipes, ones that take maybe 5-15min to make? For lunch and dinner. Thanks!

    Easy, fast (less than 15 mins), and budget friendy Cauliflower casserole

    4 ounces saltine crackers
    1/2 cup butter
    1 large head cauliflower, steamed
    1 (12 fluid ounce) can evaporated milk
    1 cup mayonnaise
    1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese

    Preheat your oven’s broiler.
    Crumble salted crackers into a small bowl and mash them with butter until soft. Place steamed cauliflower into a 9×13 inch casserole dish.
    In small saucepan, combine milk and mayonnaise with wire whisk. Bring the mixture to a boil; boil for 1 minute. Remove the pan from the heat and stir in cheese until melted. Pour this sauce over the cauliflower. Crumble the butter and cracker mixture over the cheese and cauliflower.
    Place the casserole into the preheated oven and broil until golden brown.

    U can pick up rice that u boil in a bag…takes about 10 mins. Then frozen veggies…never get canned to much crap in canned…frozen is much better for you…and get some chicken or pork…Pork is lean cheap and good for you. That’s a nice little dinner or lunch there…Cheap and VERY good for you…One of my personal faves

    Pan Fried Potato! Not fried in the ‘cover in flour and plop in the oil’ sense, but microwaved to cook and then crisped up in a pan lightly coated with extra virgin olive oil. This is a favorite of mine for absolutely any meal, it takes 10-15 minutes tops!

    Pan Fried Potato
    1 potato
    1-2 tsp extra virgin olive oil
    spray butter
    Optional seasonings and herbs:
    garlic powder
    salt and pepper
    dried oregano
    dried parsley
    dried basil
    –Cut the potato into 1/2 inch chunks (I make mine smaller and thinner because it cuts down on microwave time). Microwave in a microwave-safe bowl for 3-4 minutes. While potato is microwaving, coat a pan with oil and some spray butter for extra flavor and heat over medium heat. Put potato into pan straight from microwave and toss a little bit to coat with oil. Allow to crisp and then toss again. Allow potato to cook in pan for approximately 5 minutes. Season with seasonings of choice right before removing from pan. Serve immediately.

    Shanghai Noodles
    3 tablespoons oil
    1-2 tablespoon sesame oil
    2 cups shredded cabbage (or Chinese cabbage)
    1/2 cup chopped green onions
    8 ounces angel hair pasta
    2-4 tablespoons soy sauce (to taste)
    4 ounces sliced cooked chicken breasts (optional)
    1 can bean sprouts, drained (optional)
    –Cook pasta according to package directions; drain. While pasta is cooking, heat oil and sesame oil in skillet and saute cabbage and green onion for about 5 minutes. Add pasta and soy sauce (also chicken and/or bean sprouts if desired) and heat through.

    I also like quesadillas and quiche. Look up recipes on for vegetable quiche, garden quiche, spinach quiche, mushroom quiche, broccoli quiche, veggie quesadillas, etc.

    Budget Yet Healthy Dinner Ideas:

    Ground Beef. You can either cook it with elbow macaroni & spaghetti sauce or you can cook it with alfredo pasta and Hunts gravy (99 cents only). It’s delicious. Also, goes well with texas toast.

    Broiled Pork Chops. You’ll want to have them with steamed carrots and mashed potatoes.

    Ground Chicken. I like to cook Ground Chicken with my Yellow Rice (you can buy Goya yellow rice mix for 99 cents) and throw it in the rice and add some corn for a more mexican-style dish.

    Meatloaf! You can make it with ground turkey or extra lean ground beef. You can serve with a small serving of mashed potatoes and some peas.

    Lean cut of beef with a baked potato and steamed broccoli.

    Vegetable Soup.

    Burgers (made with extra lean beef) with vegetarian baked beans and Dole Cole Slaw (from the bag).

    Grilled Chicken served with peas & white rice.

    You can also cut the grilled chicken in cubes and add it to a salad.
