One thing, however, that is a bit of a problem, is the lack of variation of the meals. Even though there are a large range of recipes featuring different meats and foods, I’m finding it’s not quite possible to make everything on a student budget. Buying in bulk because it’s cheaper means you’re stuck eating the same thing every night and it’s hard thinking of ways to make it a little different to the night before. Like tonight, I had a salmon fillet left over from the two-pack I opened yesterday, so I decided to fry it rather than poach it as I had done last night. But, because of the mammoth bag I bought at the beginning of the week, I served it with; yes you’ve guessed it, spinach.
But, despite the monotonous meals, finding out that I can have sweets as a little snack now and then, has made me more confident than ever that two weeks is definitely achievable. And who knows maybe fish-fingers and ham sandwiches will be a thing of the past?
