Once Upon A Nerdy Eater

A place for all kinds of food, crafts and general nerdery

Day 1 of “3 for £3”

Hi All,

A couple of posts ago, G and I decided to challenge ourselves to finding recipes that were under £1 a serving for breakfast, lunch and dinner. We spent the weekend researching recipes, buying and prepping food for it and started this Monday just gone.

I had my regular “grab and go bagel” for breakfast. For lunch, I had a portion of chicken noodle soup and for dinner, we had a slow cooker spaghetti bolognese.

Grab & Go bagel = 43p. 339 calories
Chicken noodle soup = 61p. 183 calories
Spaghetti Bolognese = 41p. 236 calories.

Total for the day = £1.45. 758 calories.

3 for 3

I had enough calorie and money allowance to have half of my chicken, cheese and salad snack pot at work.

Chicken, cheese and salad = 63p. 185 calories.


Total for the day = £2.08. 943 calories.

Hope you guys like 🙂

I will be posting the Spaghetti Bolognese recipe later on, so keep an eye out for it.

Cheers for now,
