About Broke Foodie$
Welcome to Broke Foodie$!
Hey there! My name is Idriss (pronounced Ee-dris) and I am the lead writer/recipe developer here at Brokefoodies.com. The other lovely face of this blog is my wife, Léa. We both own and work together on this blog to share our stories and passion for cuisine, as well as to show you guys that it takes almost nothing to make good food and even better memories.
A little about me:
I was born and raised in and around Morocco, which means that up until my Canadian adventure, my everyday reality was: the beach; the long, balmy summers of Marrakech; and splendid Moroccan dishes, cooked with love by my wonderful mother. I spent most of my time in Marrakech, exposed to many different dishes and styles of cuisine. All natural, all amazing.
I came to Montréal at the age of 18 to study in some of their finest universities. A decade later, I found myself attached to this city and to its vibrant culture in more ways that I could have ever imagined.
What is this blog all about?
It’s simple, you most certainly already guessed it from the name, it’s all about making good food, at home, without breaking the bank. It’s possible!
We are both big foodies, we love to eat amazing food but we are both full time students, and with that comes financial constraints. Luckily, it doesn’t take a lot of money to make great food and this blog is all about showing you how we do it.
Our Way of Eating:
The diet we follow is relatively low on carbohydrates and generally high in fat and protein. I personally have followed many diets (vegan, paleo, keto …) and found that when I consume somewhere between 75-100 grams (on my active days), I perform better in the gym.
What you will find on Broke Foodie$:
- Vegan Recipes
- Keto Recipes
- Paleo Recipes
All within your budget.
The idea behind this blog is to bring to you delicious, nutritious food at and affordable cost. So whether you are looking to add more veggies in your life, or more fat, our promise to you is we will make it as affordable as can be without compromising on quality!
