    I'm in college and work full time in addition to that, and don't always have a lot of time to make food. I'm realizing how rediculous of an excuse that is to not eat clean though, and I'm realizing how much better off I could be if I just started to eat healthy. My problem is that even though I'm willing to start eating healthier meals, I don't really know any healthy recipes (I was raised on southern cooking, i.e. casseroles with extra extra butter). What are some quick and easy go to meals -keeping in mind cost- that you would recommend? Please share!

    I don't know how cheap this meal is in America but rainbow trout fillet, scrambled egg and beansprouts is really quick and simple. It doesn't cost much over here either and it's good for either breakfast, lunch or tea.

    To give you an idea on cost (if I buy small to medium fillets) I can do this meal for under £1.65

    There is no such thing as healthy processed food. You'll might want to learn some basic cooking skills and acquire a few tools, including a sharp knife, to manage fresh vegetables, lean meats and fish. Some basic prep methods are relatively easy and delicious. Fresh fruit is always easy.

    For reliable cooking basics techniques and a few recipes that taste good, buy a used copy of Craig Claiborne's Kitchen Primer from ABE books or Amazon.com.
