I am hoping to join slimming world tomorrow, but I am a little worried about the cost of food, it would be for myself and my partner.
Is it possible to eat all this food on a budget of £60 a week including fruit etc for both of us? shopping mainly in morrisons but at a push can go tesco.
I can buy cheap pasta and own brand products, its not a problem, but looking at a lot of the recipes it looks pricey, I will only buy free range egg's its from an ethical point of view because caged ones makes me feel awful, the poor things! but I can get 6 large free range egg's from morrisons for £1, hmm starting to ramble lol! We are not bothered about eating meat, maybe the odd roast dinner or the odd 'fry' up would be nice, but if it isn't doable with meat then its ok I have read about green and red meals, I would prefer to do green days and my partner would prefer red days due to protein, but once again if red is not possible on this amount then its fine
I don't want to go and pay membership tomorrow and find out I can't afford the weekly shop once I go through the books, I know £30 each a week doesn't sound like a lot but I lost my job due to ill health and am now on benefits
Any advice would be great, I see it says about 400g loafs, but in all honesty I can't afford those as 800g in morrisons is 69-79p a loaf which is better than 50p for 400g, I have also seen branded bread, I cannot afford branded bread.
I really really want to join as I weigh 17 stone and I am only 5 ft 2 inches tall! my health is going to hell and I am only 32!
Please can you help me?
