    to follow the Extra Easy plan with a weekly budget of around £30?
    I want to give the plan a try, but as it's bang in between paydays, funds are pretty tight. i've got a rough food budget of £25-30 each week for the next fortnight.
    Is it possible to follow EE on what I think is a pretty meagre budget-even if it is just to feed me!

    Should be ok. Get the offers on fruit/veg at supermarkets.

    Minced meat do chilli/spag bol.
    Get chicken thighs rather than breasts just peel of the skin you can then make curries etc. or buy a whole chicken think they're on offer in Asda for £2 (maybe that was last week)

    Pasta bakes, SW chips, Omelettes

    I think so,

    You would perhaps buy something along the following lines:

    1kg budget brand pasta = £1
    Value couscous (2 portions) = £1
    Chicken fillets - usually 3 packs cost £7
    Extra Lean Mince beef 500g =£3
    Cereal bars £4
    Jacket Potatos = £1
    Pack of half fat grated cheese = £3
    4 x Baked Beans = £2
    Carrots/courgettes/onions/tomatos/salad and any other Veggies = £5
    Fruits = £3

    Total cost = £30

    I think you could live on that for a week easily! :D

    ps thats just a suggested list, obv you can mix and match other options into it - as long as you have enough calcium and fibre - maybe buy some soups, or swap the cheese for milk etc!

    Buy seasonal fruit and vegetables, so parsnips, leeks, carrots, swede at the moment - british and cheap. Salad stuff is expensive and tastes of nothing just now, I buy the vine ripened tomatoes to get some taste but they cost a lot and I wouldn't suggest it on a budget, even a lettuce costs a quid right now!

    On the SW website is a student meal planner for the week which has some fab budget ideas, worth a look.

    I don't budget but I do try not to waste anything and never throw anything away so I really think it's do-able!
