Breakfast on a Budget

Tofu scramble & Potato Hash

One of my favorite morning meals can appeal to college students and LA housewives alike; it is easy on everyone’s schedule, budget, and waistline.

This meal costs $1.75 per person.

You read that right.

It is savory, filling, plant-based, and made with whole vegetables that will nourish your day.

Note to carb- phobes: Potatoes, when cooked properly are great for providing energy to the body. They contain high amounts of vitamin C, fiber, and potassium. Eaten in moderation and with a proper balance of fats and vitamins, carbs are essential for providing your body and mind the energy it needs to sustain itself.
