So this week I have set myself a challenge- to eat from the pantry. This means I have a limited budget to work with for groceries (only buying milk, bread, eggs plus fruit and vege on special)
I've seen many other bloggers and friends do the same thing and thought it was about time I joined in. While I will be eating out of the pantry, I will also be buying fruit and vege that is in season to make sure I am still receiving nutritionally beneficial food.
I first took a tally of what was in my pantry- brown rice, wholemeal cous cous, packet soups, pasta, tins of tuna and chicken.
I also had some leftover mince in my freezer which I will be pairing with the pantry staple, lentils, to bulk it out and get two meals out of it.
Have you ever done/thought about doing the pantry challenge? Will you be joining me?
If you have an tips for this challenge or how to reduce grocery bills (in Australia so without coupons!) I would love to hear them!
