Along with airbrushed pics, I think the most frustrating part of social media is when extremely wealthy people tell the rest of us to eat healthy using $400 worth of weekly groceries.

This dinner may look like a $20 plate from some fancy Mexican restaurant (2 words that are really an oxymoron in my mind), but it's cheap, easy, and healthy.

I sauteed 1/2 lb. of ground turkey w/some onion, garlic, tomato paste, cumin, green chili powder, paprika, and S&P. But, you can use whatever seasonings you have on hand.

Then I stirred in some whole black beans (𝐍𝐄𝐕𝐄𝐑 𝐆𝐨𝐲𝐚), a bit of cilantro, and a little shredded sharp cheddar cheese before stuffing them into poblano peppers halved and de-seeded.

I roasted them until the peppers were soft, and sprinkled a bit more cheese on top 2 mins before pulling them out of the oven.

So, for those of you spoonies on a weight loss journey, or just an "eat better" journey, I hope you know it doesn't have to cost your whole paycheck... if you are lucky enough to have a paycheck in these times.
