The $2 shop

When we last spoke I was having a good rant about fast food conglomerates and their ethics in sales practices when offering unhealthy but cheap food to the masses.  And I mean masses.  675 000 vouchers for a Whopper and fries deal from Hungry Jacks sold in less than 48 hours.

Since then I have been beavering away at unearthing meals that cost $2.00 or less as I was confident that it can be done by us all, in fact you may already be doing it and just don’t know. Over the next five weeks I am going to share five $2 (per serve) healthy and tasty meals with you.  All tried and tested by yours truly.  And they take less time than driving to a fast food outlet and getting through the drive through.

2 minute noodle omelette (serves 1 adult or 2 kids)

1 packet 99% fat free 2 minute noodles (cooked without the flavour sachet)

2 eggs, lightly beaten

1/4 sliced onion, 1/4 thinly sliced zucchini and 1 thinly sliced tomato

1/4 cup grated reduced fat cheddar cheese

Spray a small non-stick fry-pan with cooking spray and cover the bottom of the frypan with the raw vegetables and top with the cooked noodles. Pour over beaten eggs and sprinkle with grated cheese.  Cook on low heat until the egg is starting to set at the sides of the pan and then place frypan under the grill (check you have a heat-proof handle) to finish the omelette until the cheese is golden brown.

Ta-da!  You have a healthy, delicious quick meal that only cost you $1.94.
