Recipes on a budget

This book has been produced by Healthy Blaenavon, Blaenavon Town Council in conjunction with the Hwb and Newbie Chef. The project is funded by Create - Torfaen Community Food fund.
It is designed to show you how to eat on a small budget, with examples of a meal plan for as little as £1 for 3 meals and 2 snacks.
The eating plans are not nutritionally complete but do contain more vitamins and minerals than any microwave meal you can buy.
Each recipe contains tips and hints for ingredients to add or try next time. The prices in this book are based on the cheapest option in Asda, at the time of writing. (May 2021) Using basic home brands from any supermarket in these recipes, the cost will be approximately the same.
