    I’ve just done a breakdown of how much my lunch costs me, and i’m quite happy with the results 😆

    2 x Pitta bread
    1 x McCoys Crisps
    1 x Banana
    0.5 x Heinz Tomato Soup

    Total = £0.90

    It’s filling, nice and healthy. Ticks all the boxes 🙂

    What do you spend?

    Apart from the fat, salt and sugar content of the crisps and tomato soup, that’s really healthy. Oh, and there’s a bit much in the way of carbs.

    Mine is £5 per day but normally rubbish due to the apparent lack of cooking skill by anyone at my station or the fact that lunch time is seemingly the best time to set a car on fire :'(

    Do you only eat half a tin of soup?

    Some home made soup and a banana. I’d be surprised if it cost more than a quid. Feeling quite hungry though as I type this!

    im living in slovenia at the moment doing a placement. Here as students you get student coupons, as many as there are working days in the month. Which basically gives us a 4 course mean at most restaurants in the city for around 2-4 euros!
    Bargain!
    usually get salad, then soup, then a main dish, then dessert but thats often crap like cheap cake or a bit of fruit

    Ham salad (made night before)
    Activia yogurt
    Orange
    small Kit Kat

    Probably about a quid. And more healthy than your junk 😉

    Considering I grew most of it myself the price would be very close to £0 which is just the way I like it

    No point in wasting money on food when there’s bike stuff to buy

    I have no idea but work varies on taking something in, grabbing a sarnie at the garage, take away of some description but that has the risk of being called out and it going cold or pies.

    If I’m at work, it’s free – at home, about £1. Wrap, salad, chicken (usually), granola bar and sometimes a bag of crisps.

    Today’s lunch was 4 slices of home-made sourdough with ham and some salad leaves. Cost pennies?

    Mine costs as much or as little as the local cafe charges. I really like cafes. A packed lunch, no matter how delicious I make it, is just a disappointing way to eat.

    2 for 99p at Greggs. Sausage-tastic! Why would anyone opt for anything else?

    1/2 pound lobster and a bottle of Cristal

    Less than the £5 I used to spend at a sandwich shop… and I eat more and of a better quality.

    I generally make a massive load of bolognese or some-such on a Sunday evening, which lasts me all week for lunches.

    This week, for example: 1 packet of beef mince £3, some mushrooms, jar bolognese sauce £1.80, 1 onion £0.16, other mixed veg £1 and a few hanfuls of pasta £0.50 (& gas to cook it £?)

    Works out at ~£1.50 per day plus gas!

    Happy with that.

    £1.50 wouldn’t even buy me the cheapest sandwich in our canteen.

    Ok, well apart from the crisps.

    Carbs, not an issue. i need them for the ride home 😆

    I went through a stage of making a massive batch of food for thr week, but then got lazy, couple this with a few pots exploding in my bag on the way in, I was just put off.

    All lettuce are salad leaves. Not all salad leaves are lettuce.

    Either leftovers (so marginal, given overall weekly food cost) or something from the canteen at work (so £3-5ish, depending on greed).

    Will be more leftovers shortly. Mainly because food I make is healthy, not like factory bread, crisps and industrial soup..!

    I usually have a “Pasta ‘n’ Sauce,” these days. Quite filling and ASDA are doing ’em for 50p at the moment. Do I win?

    I pushed the boat out today, got a tin of Heinz soup and a couple of big teacakes (rolls / baps / muffins / barms / regional variation name of choice) so that probably ran to about a quid.
