How much does your lunch cost?
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!Posted 6 years ago
usually get salad, then soup, then a main dish, then dessert but thats often crap like cheap cake or a bit of fruitsmell_itMember
Bubble and squeak rosti with fried egg, followed by apple crumble and custard; £3.35 with my staff discount in the hospital canteen, with a free unlimited supply of corporation pop. Covers all my scrawny bodies needs, nom nom nom…I rarely bother cooking much at home.Posted 6 years agojoao3v16Member
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.Posted 6 years agowillMember

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.
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.Posted 6 years agoourmaninthenorthSubscriber
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..!Posted 6 years agoCougarSubscriber
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.Posted 6 years ago
