Simple, Healthy Recipes Requiring Minimal Resources

Oatmeal and Fruit: Boil 2 cups of water or milk. Add ¾ cup of regular oats and ½ cup of fruit (such as chopped apple, banana, raisins, pear, or berries.) Add a pinch of salt and a teaspoon of honey or other sweetener. Continue to cook on low until oats are soft and creamy, stirring occasionally, about 5 minutes. (serves 2)

Vegetable Soup: Coat the bottom of a pot lightly with oil then add 1 medium onion chopped and 2-3 cloves of garlic chopped. Similar the onion and garlic in the oil. Add 4 cups of water or vegetable broth and bring to a boil. Add 2 cups of finely chopped vegetables (such as carrots, tomato, greens, celery, squash, sweet potato.) Continue to cook on medium until the veggies are almost soft. Add 1 cup of cooked/canned beans (such as chickpea, kidney bean, black bean.) Add salt, pepper, and any herbs to taste (such as oregano, thyme, basil.) If you did not use broth, mash up a bit of the soup to give the liquid some texture. (serves 4)

Omelette with Toast: Coat the bottom of a skillet lightly with oil and heat it up until water sizzles when dropped on the surface. Crack 2 eggs into a bowl and beat well. Pour the eggs onto the hot oil. Cover the top of the egg with ⅓ cup total of finely chopped onion, spinach (or other green), tomato, and pepper. Add grated cheese as well, if you choose. Use a spatula to fold the egg in half. Flip as needed to cook on both sides. Serve with toast. (serves 1)

Veggie and Fruit w/ Dip: Mix ½ cup peanut butter and 2 tablespoons of honey in a bowl. Slice 1 apple, 1 carrots, and 1 celery stalk. Dip the fruits and veggies in the peanut butter mixture and enjoy. (serves 2)
