You would be cheaper doing green days. i would buy a wholemeal loaf and milk. Then i would have a couple of tins of tomatoes, beans, potatoes , eggs and a couple of packets of pasta and savoury rice.

You could make pasta and sauce, jacket potatoes, beans on toast, rice , sw chips etc

Maybe someone else will have some other ideas.

Jacket potato and beans is a nice cheap and filling meal on green. Buy some cheap pasta and serve with a sauce made with tinned tomatoes. Breakfast can be stores own make creeal. I buy sunnybisk (like weetabix) 36 for 79p. Homemade soup made with cheap veggies.
Hope these help for green days. I don't do red sorry

I use aldi's 19p noodles for lunch at work, bit of boiling water and microwave.
I'd also buy spuds, eggs and whatever fruit on offer - most places have satsumas or clementines on special at the mo.
I don't do beans, so a couple of tins of spag in tom sauce.
Actually for under two quid you could have all of Aldi's on offer veg as they're 39p this time - see bargains sticky at the top :)

Any noodles are free, its the seasoning that has the syns. So if you buy Tesco 9p noddles and add a bit of chicken seasoning then they will be free.

If you're near an Aldi they have carrots, potatoes, parsnips and satsumas on sale at 39p a bag. Other options would be soups for lunch or how about a potato curry for dinner? Get some eggs and you could do a potato frittata for your lunch.

mug shots, bathcellors rice is on offer @ the mo, low fat supernoodles are free, eggs and if you want something sweet buy sum pudding rice and skimmed milk make sum rice pudding...X
