You may think cooking enough dinner to include leftovers for lunch the next day is an impressively organised feat, but stand aside, because you have not seen a single well-planned thing until you’ve seen Kaitie Purssell in the kitchen.
Last week alone, the NSW mum-of-two and Healthy Mummy consultant cooked and prepared a cool 50 healthy and nourishing meals all for the grand sum of $125. That’s $2.50 a pop.
“After thinking about how I’m going to keep my belly warm this winter, I had a look through the the recipe hub [a service on the Healthy Mummy website] and I was overwhelmed by all the winter friendly food,” Purssell told fellow users.
“I wrote my shopping list and headed off to the shops, I was even more surprised when my shopping came to just under $125,” she said, adding, “I didn’t need some of the dried herbs and spices but I did buy a large majority of the ingredients for all the recipes.”
What followed was five servings of ragu, nine servings of ‘hidden veggie bolognese’, four servings of curry, six servings of chilli con carne, six servings of soup, five servings of enchiladas, five servings of Spanish rice, four servings of vegetarian pasta and six servings of pad thai.
