Eating healthy on a Budget
- Get three health-conscious presenters to share their own typical (inexpensive) plant-based meal plan for a week. The recipes should include prices and source of the ingredients.
Each presenter should also share an inexpensive recipe, outlining the nutrients present in the meal presented. It should include the price for ingredients, pictures and samples where necessary.
Where resources are available, ask the presenters to make adequate amounts for tasting after the service. Ask the presenters to emphasize the nutritional components of each meal and how they cover both the full percentage of macro and micronutrients required in a healthy diet.
As much as possible, ensure the meals align closely with the cultural palette of your local congregation. Make healthy alternatives to popular local dishes or introduce new and interesting recipes. Ensure that the ingredients can be sourced locally and inexpensively.
Each person should leave the program with the confidence to be able to replicate a few of the meals presented.
