    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.

    noodles - always ahve mine with some low fat mayo and a tin of tuna (helthy b)
    potatoes - chips, jackets
    beans - on toast, in jackets
