Planning Your Meals: Reducing Food Waste
For budget-friendly meals, try planning for the week ahead. This is key to sticking to a healthy budget without compromising on flavour or nutrition.
Try to choose meals that have similar vegetable bases – such as a curry, bolognese, stew or stir fry – as this will encourage you to bulk buy your vegetables. This can lower your costs and help to reduce any food waste.
Vegetables, such as aubergine, courgettes, carrots, sweet potatoes and cauliflower, are all versatile and work well in a number of dishes.
Once you’ve divided the vegetables up between meals for the week, you can then use any leftovers to create a delicious vegetable soup. This soup recipe is delicious, nutritious and perfect for a quick lunch.
