Din­ner on a Dime – and in Less Time!

Wel­come back to our an­nual Bud­get Is­sue show­cas­ing over 20 meals ring­ing in at $3 or less and full of kitchen short­cuts that are sure to change your cook­ing game for­ever.

In this edi­tion, we’re bring­ing back some of your all-time fa­vorites, like “Good­ness to Go!” on page 38, a main­stay of the Bud­get Is­sue for four years run­ning, fea­tur­ing 10 make-and-take recipes from break­fasts and snacks to lunches and din­ners that make eat­ing clean on the move a cinch. Also back by pop­u­lar de­mand is our batch­cook­ing fea­ture, “Get-Ahead Sun­days” (page 76), where we show you how to make a week’s worth of meals in one day. In fact, this is such a fa­vorite among read­ers that we’ve cre­ated a ro­bust 7-week on­line cook­ing class, Batch Cook­ing 101: Cook Once & Eat Clean All Week (launch­ing Septem­ber 11), led by CE’s con­tribut­ing culi­nary nutri­tion­ist turned Clean Eat­ing Acad­emy in­struc­tor Pamela Salz­man. I’ve got to say, you might think some of this stuff would be old hat for those of us work­ing in food pub­lish­ing and food ed­u­ca­tion who do this day in and day out, but when Ex­ec­u­tive Edi­tor An­drea Gourgy and I were work­ing on this course, we got re­ally giddy over all the amaz­ing stuff crammed into it. I’m talk­ing sur­pris­ing things even the staff wants to learn about – some amaz­ing time-sav­ing hacks plus count­less cre­ative recipes that can be trans­formed into many more. This told me that we have some­thing truly spe­cial on our hands. Sign up to learn more about this rev­o­lu­tion­ary new course at cleaneat­ing.com/batch­cook­ing. Hurry, the course starts soon!

As for what’s new this year, we’re in­tro­duc­ing our first ever 20-in­gre­di­ent, week-long meal plan on page 84. This was no easy feat for devel­oper Jesse Lane Lee, but she man­aged to cre­ate a 7-day eat­ing plan of healthy and var­ied snacks and meals em­ploy­ing just 20 in­gre­di­ents plus a few pantry sta­ples. Talk about a light shop! We’re also un­veil­ing “Dou­ble-Duty Din­ners” on page 52, where we’ll show you how one meal can trans­form into an en­tirely dif­fer­ent meal the fol­low­ing night, mean­ing you cook once but eat twice. And last but not least, the culi­nary world is in a frenzy over the lat­est time-sav­ing ap­pli­ance, the In­stant Pot, a multi-cooker that al­lows you to steam, sauté, slow cook, pres­sure-cook, bake beans, make yo­gurt and cook rice all in one handy pot. In the nearly 10 years of print­ing Clean Eat­ing, we’ve never once cen­tered an en­tire recipe story around a sin­gle ap­pli­ance, but the In­stant Pot mer­its it and found a per­fect home in our time- and money-sav­ing is­sue. We hope you en­joy the ul­tra-cre­ative dishes we de­vel­oped us­ing this in­no­va­tive kitchen tool. En­joy a thrifty, stress-free fall!
