This is the version I call my 'Fruit and Veg' Live Below the Line. It is possible, just, to be able to incorporate more fruit and veg into your Challenge if you shop wisely. The supermarkets with the 'weigh and sticker' your own veggies are the easiest ones to shop at for this. Although now it is possible, if they are quiet, to weigh and definitely price your loose fruit and veggies on the self service tills, that most supermarkets have.
Of course you could also go to a local market, late in the day would be good when they are about to pack up, and explain what you are doing to the greengrocer and see what bargains there might be to be had.
Brown Bread 50p
Peanut Butter 62p
But anyway using one supermarket (again the big orange one) this is what I found I could do with my basic £5 shopping money to keep myself fed for the week. In fact this little lot comes to just £4.12, leaving a whole 88p left to play with to buy some more fruit or veg, or maybe some yogurts to have with your lunch time fruit, the choice is yours.
2 Apples for 40p
3 Bananas for 30p
So the basic menu is :
Breakfast - Coffee, and Toast with Peanut Butter
Lunch - A piece of fruit (alternate each day)
Tea - Vegetable Curry and Rice
(The curry could be made with all the ingredients at the start of the week to save time and then frozen in individual portions for each evening.)
2 x 26p Jars of Curry Sauce = 52p
1kg Mixed Vegetables 75p
1 Onion 13p
1 kg Rice 40p
Just another set of ideas to see if I can tempt you to take part in this years Challenge.
