Tonight I’m going to make a veggie burger and have it with potato wedges, onion, sauerkraut and mustard.

Then the next few days will be:

Breakfast

Bran Flakes, Almond Milk and Orange Juice

Lunch

Hummus and Carrots, maybe on toast or in an open sandwich

Dinner

Home Made Fish Cakes with Vegetables

 

I get paid on Wednesday so may look to do a bigger and better food shop by then. I’m really trying to make do with what I have in the house so I spend less time out at the shops.

 

 

Food Prepping for the Week Ahead

Hi everybody!

I’m still running down my stores at home and I have had a look through my cupboards and by my calculations I can go till Wednesday before needing to do any shopping at all.

Another reason why I am running down my stores is because I’ve noticed my freezer could do with defrosting and now seems as good a time as any to do it.

The UK is under lockdown for another 3 weeks that will take us up to the beginning of May, though I suspect it is likely to be extended again, so I might as well prepare for the worst case scenario.

Here is my rough food plan for the next few days. I’m trying to get my five a day fruit and vegetables and am making my choices around that.

It is around that point next week that I will need to do another food shop for things like bread, orange juice, milks, fresh fruit and vegetables. My plan is to go to the shops as little as possible and do my bit to help stop the spread of coronavirus, and to prep my freezer for defrosting. And when I do go to the shops it will be with a detailed food plan for the weeks ahead, making use of what I already have in stock to not only save money but to reduce panic buying in the shops.
