Do you want to eat a healthy and varied diet and still be conscious of your budget?

Eating healthy while keeping an eye on budget can be challenging. Oftentimes pre-cooked meals or convenience food is offered for a more affordable price than fresh and healthy ingredients. But this challenge also boosts creativity while cooking with affordable ingredients from scratch which is why we at Braun want to inspire home cooks to make the most out of versatile staple ingredients – Start cooking delicious meals everybody will love while saving money in the process.

One ingredient

One ingredient – many culinary options.

The key to more versatile cooking is using ingredients that can be prepared in many ways and cuisines. Thankfully, versatile staple ingredients such as chickpeas, lentils, rice or beans are not only low in costs but can also be stored in your pantry for a long time. Consider buying in bulk to save even more money and time, staffing your pantry with a base for various dishes whenever you need it. Browse through our selection of recipes and say goodbye to boring dishes.

Recipes with chickpeas.

Chickpeas are rich in protein, fiber, vitamins, and minerals, providing essential nutrients that support muscle health, digestion, and overall well-being. Adding to that, their high content of folate and iron makes chickpeas beneficial for promoting heart health and preventing anemia.
 

Recipes with lentils.

Lentils are a nutritional powerhouse, packed with protein, fiber, vitamins, and minerals that contribute to muscle maintenance, digestive health, and overall nutrient balance. With significant amounts of folate, iron, and magnesium, lentils also support heart health, aid in preventing anemia, and promote optimal bone and muscle function.

Recipes with beans.

Beans are a nutrient-dense food, containing high levels of protein, fiber, vitamins, and minerals that contribute to muscle health, digestive function, and overall well-being. Additionally, their low glycemic index and ability to regulate blood sugar levels make beans a valuable component of a balanced diet, supporting long-term energy and metabolic health. Beans and black beans in particular are also a popular meat alternative due to their nutritional benefits.

Recipes with rice.

Rice, whether white or brown, is a staple food that serves as a significant source of carbohydrates, supplying readily available energy for the body. Additionally, brown rice contains more fiber and essential nutrients compared to its refined white counterpart, contributing to digestive health and overall nutritional balance when incorporated into a diverse diet.

Recipes with oats.

Oats as a whole grain are packed with soluble fiber that supports digestive health and helps manage cholesterol levels. Furthermore, oats provide a good source of vitamins and minerals such as magnesium, iron or zinc, contributing to overall heart health and providing sustained energy.

Recipes with potatoes.

Potatoes are a rich source of carbohydrates, providing a quick and easily accessible energy source for the body. They also contain essential vitamins and minerals, including vitamin C, potassium, and B vitamins, contributing to immune function.

Cook once, eat twice.

Cook once, eat twice.

A huge benefit of these staple ingredients is their versatility which also means you can re-use leftovers from previous meals. Think of black beans for a Mexican bowl on the first day and use the leftover beans to prepare tasty "meatballs" the day after. Re-thinking the way you use leftovers can boost creativity when debating what will be on the dinner table, decrease shopping costs and prevent food waste at the same time.
