Every week I breakdown the exact cost of one of the meals I’ve cooked for either breakfast, lunch or dinner. This is to prove once and for all that eating delicious, nutritious, well-balanced meals doesn’t need to break the bank with your food choices – in fact, the opposite!
By planning my meals each week and using whole food such as vegetables, eggs, and ethically-sourced meat, I create delicious meals that fit my health and fitness goals, on a completely achievable budget – if you haven’t set your budget yet, check out my simple tips here.

This Chicken Burrito Bowl is a delicious, balanced meal and is an absolute staple of my diet – I love Mexican food, so it’s definitely not a meal deserved for my cheap food Tuesday series!
This is another classic example of how easily meals can be prepped and cooked beforehand and enjoyed for several days. Just store your chicken, veg, and rice separately and assemble your dish in the morning before taking it to work!
– Swap the cheese out for some smashed avocado for a tasty top to your bowl, and incorporate some healthy fats into your meal while you’re at it!
