Broke & Chubby

Affordable and Appetizing


For most of my life, I've had a self diagnosed eating disorder called half-bulimia. I binge eat, but skip the purging part. I'm putting an end to that. 


Good news is, I love to cook. I am a firm believer in trying anything once. What I am not, is an innovative cook. I haven't really tried to develop my own recipes... until now! Woohoo! What I've found most frustrating, as a person who pretty much lives paycheck to paycheck, is that healthy food is really. friggin. expensive. Thanks, America. Now I'm on a mission: to make cheap, healthy and delicious meals. Seems simple enough, right? We will see!

    Five Random Wrestling Magazines
    Wannabe Chicken Nuggets
    Dinner 9/21/13
    Approximate Calories: 323 per serving (not incuding mashed potatoes and green beans)
    2 Chicken Breasts (or 3 small ones!)
    1 cup oats

    1 tsp red pepper flakes
    1 tsp fiery seasoning
    Salt & pepper to taste
  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees
  • Cut chicken into nugget sized pieces
  • Using a blender/food processor (I use a magic bullet), blend the oats and seasoning to create a flavored flour
  • Whip up your eggs in a bowl
  • Dip the chicken into the eggs, then into the oatmeal flour
  • Place onto a baking sheet with a little cooking spray
  • After you've put the nuggets onto the sheet, spray some more cooking spray on top
  • Bake them for 10 minutes or so, flip them and bake for another 3-5

    Approximate Calories: 200
    1/2 cup oats
    1/3 cup water
    1 banana
    1 egg
    1/4 tsp cinnamon
    • Turn your oats into oat flower by using a food processor or blender. 
    • Add wet ingredients. I'd recommend chopping up your banana into fine pieces. 
    • Blend until it's a thick, soupy consistency.
    • Cook for about 30-45 seconds on each side over medium heat on a non-stick pan.

    Stovetop Tilapia Burgers
    Dinner: 9/18/13
    Approximate Calories: 350
    Frozen tilapia
    1/4 cup panko
    1/2 egg
    1 tsp garlic
    1 tsp McCormick Fiery Seasoning
    A pinch of salt and pepper
    2 tsp olive oil
    • Thaw the tilapia. I usually just sit it in a bowl of room temperature water for a half hour or so. 
    • Cut it up into small pieces. What size? Whatever size your blender/food processor can handle.
    • Add tilapia, panko, egg, garlic, seasoning with a little salt and pepper and blend. Shouldn't take more then a couple minutes to get to the consistency you want.
    • Heat the olive oil in a non-stick pan over medium heat.
    • Form the tilapia into a patty and cook on each side for 4-5 minutes. The edges should turn white, that's when you know to flip it.

    1/2 cup quaker oats,

    • Lightly coat your chicken breast in olive oil.
    • Dip your chicken breast into the dry mixture and pat it in so it's fully covering every bit of the chicken.
    • Brush a little non-stick (spray, oil, whatever works- you don't need much) on your pan.
    • Place chicken in the pan. 
    • Drizzle honey (optional)

    Tuna, Egg & Avocado Salad
    Dinner: 9/14/13
    Approximate Calories: 170 per serving
    4 eggs
    1 can chunk tuna (in water)
    1 avocado
    1/2 tbsp Flax
    Salt & Pepper, seasonings
    • Boil water with 1 tsp salt and add eggs
    • Let eggs boil for 10 minutes
    • Remove eggs and put them in a bowl of ice water, let sit for 5 minutes, remove
    • Chop up finely
    • Chop up avocado and add to the egg mixture
    • Add tuna and mix together with salt, pepper, flax and whatever seasonings
    Obviously this is a large portion. For dinner, I took a couple scoops and put them in an Olé fiber wrap, which I love because they have that sticky consistency like Chipotle's wraps therefore actually seal the ingredients inside.
