I used to live on a tight budget and for a while I had to eat a very strict diet. I basically had to go vegan for health reasons. I lived off of the following recipes and I still make them whenever I am just cooking for myself :) I call these bachelorette meals. This is thanks to a conversation where my boyfriend and I told each other about our trashiest meals that we loved to make before we lived together.
Bachelorette meal #1 Box of couscous (like Near East brand) Pre-minced garlic from a jar Smart balance "spread" Basil Lemon juice Drained can of garbanzo beans
Mix everything together and eat your giant sadness bowl for one.
