Healthy budget friendly meal plan

It can be a challenge to find recipes that are both delicious, healthy, and budget friendly. Let us take some of the legwork out of the process with our favourite meal plan that meets all of those needs. 

This week we are sharing some of our all time favourite recipes that are both healthy and great for on a budget. The meal plan includes 7 dinners the cost of which works out to be approx £25 (though this will vary store to store and sending on seasonal offers). 

  • The dinners all take 30 minutes or less to cook so you don't have to worry about slaving away in the kitchen all day. 
  • The recipes are designed for two portions (great for busy couples) but for families multiply up the quantities depending on your needs. 
  • Meats and fish can be substituted for alternatives that you may prefer or find are better value for money and don't forget buying meat/fish in bulk and freezing is a great way to save on cost per portion. 
  • It has a self contained shopping list of everything you need for the week plus all the recipes. So you only need to print of one document to take with you to the store. 

Our favourite tools for meal planning
We love to keep all the meal plans we create in one easy to use binder. 
Plus, by keeping the meal plans in sheet protecters means we can re-use them time and time again and saves us printing out several copies. *Affiliate link: see disclosure below*
