Recipes and Meal Plan!


For the past month or so, I have been making a conscious effort to sit down and meal plan at the beginning of the week. It has helped so much to keep a cap on my spending and also to make sure that nothing is wasted at the end of the week (a bad habit that I used to allow to happen all the time!)

As well as my meal plan and recipes, I wanted to show you what would also be on my shopping list each week. Additional items consist of:

  • Trek Bars (Vegan Protein bars – they are amazing and feel like you’re eating something naughty!)
  • Fruit – bananas, oranges, apples etc.
  • Semi-skimmed milk (for my husband), unsweetened almond milk (for me)
  • The essentials: Bread, eggs etc.

My bill this week came to £71.00. This has been one of the highest since I started meal planning, but because I worked my meal plan around using up what I had last week, I am literally starting again from scratch this week ( so next week should be a bit cheaper as I will be using up things again!) My bill will always be a bit higher aswell, as I don’t eat meat (only fish), and my husband does. This means that a lot of the time I am making two slightly different meals each evening.

So here is my meal plan for this week!:


I know we are out a lot this weekend, and this is the benefit of meal planning..  it means you can prepare for these nights and not ‘over buy’. Monday’s evening meal is a ‘two can dine’ for £10.00 offer which we picked up from Marks and Spencers, so that’s why there is no meal there!

I hope this helped inspire you this week!
