I am so pleased at how popular Credit Crunch Munch; which I run jointly with Camilla from Fab Food 4 All, has been in the first two months it has been running.
We want to know how you enjoy great food, but still spend less or save some money. Think about…
- Dishes using cheaper ingredients – cheap cuts of meat or vegetarian
- Meals using leftovers
- Meals using up the ends of packets
- Substitutions of cheaper ingredients
- Packed lunches
- Meals that use less energy to cook
- Pressure cooking
- Slow cooking
- Faster cooking – less oven time for example
- Batch cooking for the freezer
- Sustainable foods
- Food you have grown yourself
- Meals from reduced food in the supermarket
As a little extra incentive to take part the lovely people at Yoghurt Direct have offered a prize of a Easiyo Yoghurt maker and 3 sachets of your choice to get started. The prize will be UK delivery only and will be selected at random from all the entries – so if you submit two frugal dishes you get two entries. To be fair if I or Camilla win I’ll draw again.
Credit Crunch Munch
To take part, simply blog about any money saving idea that is vaguely food related, I am especially keen to hear about substitutions for when you run out of something this month
