For my £5 I bought:

living below the line shopping

  • Sweet potatos x 3 – 50p
  • Squash 1/2 50p
  • Soya milk -(not pictured) 59p
  • Coconut cream 59p
  • Eggs 89p – I decided to save 11p and go for sad battery eggs instead of freerange.
  • Mince £1.48
  • Random veg bought from my fridge 45p

The ‘random veg’ is what I have leftover in the fridge, which is a leek, a manky bit of celery, a small carrot, some samphire, a small cooked beetroot and a bag of reduced capsicums. And I found a tomato in the street, it’s mine now.

Greens will be foraged wild garlic, nettles, dandylion leaves and garlic mustard, which is doing really well in the garden right now.

I also have some mint and lemon balm growing, none of which I planted so it won’t cost anything.  I also have horseradish which was here when I moved in 13 years ago.

  1. egg baked in capsicum
  2. egg poached on boiled greens
  3. egg mixed into fried up capsicum and leek

  5. egg scrambled with leek and garlic mustard
