Over the holidays, I was chatting with some of my readers about healthy eating and one of the biggest concerns was how to make healthy low glycemic eating more affordable.

Even though this subject is a big one and I am going to write a blog post about eating healthy on a budget, I wanted to start today’s post by giving you one simple tip on how you can make your food budget go further.

Are you ready?

Here we go:

Use what you already have.

Here in North America, we are the champions of throwing away food. And this especially goes for fruits and veggies – the foods we should eat more of.

So, today’s Sunny Side Up Eggs with Veggies recipe is just one simple idea on how to use your leftover veggies and make them into a meal.

You can use any type of cooked vegetables you have on hand, for example, Stewed Bell  Peppers, Roasted Root Vegetables, or Sauteed Zucchini.

Simple. Healthy. Delicious. Budget-friendly.
