A few ideas on how to bulk up your food, save money on expensive cuts of meats & generally save money with food

A few ideas on how to bulk up your food, save money on expensive cuts of meats & generally save money with food
  • Add dried beans (Kidney, Chickpea, Lentils etc) or canned versions (easier to cook but generally more expensive) to pretty much any dish to add a healthy amount of fibre. Buying in bulk will save you even more.
  • Adding Rice (ideally brown), Potatoes (inc sweet potatoes), couscous, eggs, oats, nuts, seeds etc
  • Wait for supermarket clearances on veggies – buy in bulk, blanch and freeze.
  • Keep an eye on your local butchers discounts, special offers at supermarkets &/or check for ‘new customer’ deals from sites like MuscleFood etc. If you can buy Reduced to Clear meat from supermarkets you can still freeze and eat within the month
  • Look at alternative cuts of meat, such as buying Chicken thighs instead of Chicken breasts, they’re still delicious, have a good amount of protein, and are cheap. Then learn how to properly cut up a full chicken.
  • Save the bones from any chicken etc and boil with spices, salt, water and then you’ve got a nice cheap broth, add this to rice when cooking or as a base for soups etc.
  • Make your own bread, it can cost you a few pence to make + you can use your oven whilst cooking something else to save on cooking prices. Remember to learn how to make your bread last longer.
  • Learn how to re-grow certain veg
  • Stop buying supermarket sandwiches and make your own AWESOME ones at home
  • Buy a slow cooker and actually use it at least twice a week!

Important things to remember with everything we post:

  • If you earn over your personal allowance (currently £12,570 a year) HMRC need to get their % cut (even if the money is in cash or from another country)
  • If you’re working for yourself / earning an income on the side you need to let HMRC know – There are numerous benefits but also some drawbacks
  • You need to always ensure whatever you’re doing is legal and not hurting anyone else – be careful and always think twice
  • Some income streams may require you to have DBS check, licence, insurance or qualifications before you can start to profit from it, do your research.
  • Be careful that any additional income doesn’t compromise your studies or main income/job
  • If you work for a company check your contract, if you don’t inform them you’re working on other side projects outside of work they may have grounds to ownership on this work
