Combining my ever increasing interest in both plant-based and planet-based food. Below is a weeks worth of foods and recipes for those wanting to eat well for themselves, the planet and their pockets.
The recipes are predominately based on seasonal produce too and cost just £5.85 for 14 meals!
Okay so truth time- there is a catch to this one. Stay with me…
The catch is pantry staples and assuming you have dried herbs, spices, seeds + condiments already. Buying all of these things can be costly at first but they have such a long shelf life and you only need to use a little bit each time you cook. They make such a difference to your meals and often come with big health benefits.
1 week, 14 meals repeat.

But that’s not it, all of the dinner recipes make enough food for 2 servings. If you live on your own, like me, then that’s two weeks worth of delicious, healthy food bringing the weekly cost down to just £5.85 for 14 meals. You’ll also be building up your pantry staples as they’ll be rice, lentils and pasta left over.
I’ll be adding links to all the recipes as soon as I’ve made the posts!
Peace to the planet and peace to your pockets
