Feeding a family can be pretty expensive these days. Actually, feeding yourself is pretty expensive, let alone worrying about picky little eaters! I spoke earlier on my blog about the difficulty that I used to have when cooking on a budget, so I have decided to share a few of what I call my Hero recipes, for when the pennies need to stretch that little bit further! Take a screenshot and save it on your phone, you can thank me later 😉
I also have a couple of recommendations that I find to be super useful.
A Girl called Jack : ( https://cookingonabootstrap.com/) She’s wicked, a thrifty, feminist food writer with a sharp sense of humour. I just know that you are going to love her. I follow her on instagram too, heres a link for those of you who are interested. ( https://www.instagram.com/jack_monroe)
Sainsbury’s on Pinterest: I know this is a random one, but recently I discovered that they have tonnes of pages for budget and vegan recipes, and they are broken down at price per portion so they are great if you are trying to keep to a certain cost. ( https://www.pinterest.co.uk/sainsburys/) We strongly recommend the shroomdog pasta.
A Facebook page called “Feed your family for £20 a week” :I must admit that we have never followed a full week, and its not all veggie/ vegan, but its a great resource for ideas, and i often tweak the recipes.
