I thought I’d share my food plan with you this week to give you some ideas of eating nice food on a budget.
There’s quite a variety and it still came to £30! Please bear in mind that this is not a diet or for weight loss but it is using mostly fresh ingredients and healthier options, so is better for you than processed foods.
If you’d like any of the recipes that don’t have a link then please just ask.
