Shopping list ideas
I wasn't prepared in my first week so I've been basically living on fruit and cous cous.
I'm going to do a SW shop tomorrow and this is what I have so far. Bearing in mind I don't really cook and definitely don't bake:-
* Brown Nimble bread
* Flora light
* Linda McCartney sausages
* Alpen light bars
* Stir fry veg
* Egg noodles
* 4000 Mugshots
Anyone got any ideas for other staples that are easy and available in Tesco?
What sort of meals are you planning and which plan are you following??
Have you thought about planning your food for the week and then doing the shopping? (that sounds patronising, I truly don't mean it to!)
I have a meal planner on a spreadsheet and I plan my breakfasts, lunches and dinners for the whole week - in another tab I have a shopping list (arranged by aisle order, but that's just because I've clearly lost my mind) and when I add a meal where I need something I just tab over and add it to my shopping list. I've found this to be invaluable, not only from an eating perspective, but also financially!
Chicken, extra lean mince, lots of fresh & frozen veggies/fruit, pasta & sauce, curly wurlys (6 synds each), velvet crunch (4 syns each), ryvita mini (heb), pasat & sauce, tinned tomatoes, babybell lights.
That was pretty much my shopping list this week.
I'm not organised enough to plan meals ahead of time (and massive respect for your aisle order shopping list, Sally).
I think I'll have toast for breakfast (maybe throw in a banana occasionally) and jacket spud or salad for lunch (at my desk at work) so I need mostly evening meal stuff that is filling an doesn't get too boring.
I use the ww spread, you get loads of it for a syn, enough for quite a thick spread on my 3slices ww brown danish x
Hello, you know the ww brown danish is no longer a heb? Just don't want you getting caught out! xxx
