    I do a mixture.

    I do my main shop at ASDA as they always have plenty of offers on yoghurts, meats etc etc. I also pop into aldi and get there super 6 when I need it and ff natural yoghurt etc etc.

    As I'm still only 19 and living at home, my mum and dad do the food shopping.
    They do the main shop at Morrisons, as it's always packed full of special offers - plus they have a discount card, thanks to one of my best friends working there ;)
    Now and again they also pop into Asda, if anything they like appears to be on special offer there.
    Most things they get from both places seem to be SW friendly - I'm in my 6th week on plan and haven't had any problems so far! Hope this helps xx

    Me too, but I also nip into Sainsbury's & get my frozen fruit as it's only £1 bag for their own.

    Tesco mostly. But I work there, so I get a 10% discount lol. My bf prefers some of Asda products, like their in-store bakery bread, bagels and pizza. But I find in general Tesco do seem to have nicer things available, the fruit is always much fresher at (maybe it's just my local ones) Tesco than it is in Asda.

    I am in Spain but use Lidl and Aldi as well as Iceland and our national chains. Lidl is by far the cheapest and always has the freshest fruit and veg.

    I had forgotten about lidl, we usually go to asda but it seems to be getting more expensive, might try Sainsburys, Jamie Oliver is luring me to the dark (orange) side,

    Usually Asda and Aldi, but Morrison's for a treat (or when I'm in the area, 40 miles away!!)

    I try to find where things are cheapest, and it's rarely Tesco!!
