So a healthy low carb diet on a budget. Have to include potatoes for the rest of the mob and bread for them.
The challenge is to do 4 weeks on a budget of ................................. wait for it .......................................... £150. Of course my cupboards and freezer already has stuff in. But this is the plan so will give it a go. Forgot to mention, this is to feed 5 of us :o
3 x packs of meat (chicken, gammon and pork) £10
1 x pack berries £1
3 x onion rings (my treat) £2
3 x pack veg £2
3 x 18 pack bacon :D £6
2 x milk £1.60
2 x salad leaves £1.20
3 x 2 chicken things £2
potato waffles (not for me obviously) £2
3 x pastry (again not for me lol) £2
pork scratchings £0.89
tub strong spreadable cheese £0.79
Got a 10% discount so spent £30. :D
I have £10 in my purse and about £10 in asda apg's (and some change but that will be used for kids clubs/parking etc)
So £10 to last rest of week. I need to get cereal for the troops on Thursday so may pick up some more veg/salad in Lidl.
Today I was also given 12 fresh eggs, a huge cabbage, bag of sprouts and a veg that I don't have a clue what it is similar to swede I think. And a bottle of marrow and courgette wine to go with the marrow wine I am already storing for a few months.
Food for today
B - yogurt
L - cheese/relish (I know, bad but I was busy)
T - pork joint that I bought whoopsied a few days ago with the free cabbage and sprouts and carrot.
I found a pack of beef in the freezer so tomorrow that will be turned into a casserole. I don't have any onion so am debating if I should pop to shop or just put in a few peppers. I think putting in a few peppers will be the cheapest option. So my stew will have beef, peppers, the veg that I don't know what is, carrot, parsnips and green beans and maybe a few peas as the kids do like them. They will have theirs with mash, I will probably just have double portion lol
So week 1, day 1 £30/£150 but as you can see I have got a fair bit of meat/veg/salad.
Keep your fingers crossed for me.
