Weekly Meal Plan Twelve


Weekly Meal Plan Twelve

For this, our twelfth weekly meal plan for 2 adults and 2 children (up to around age 10 needing 1700 calories each), we base it around a whole chicken, bacon, sausage and lots of vegetables.

As at 16th February 2019, you will need £37 in your purse at the checkout, but the amount of food actually consumed (if you follow the plan fully) comes to £32.72 or £1.17, per person, per day.

The column headed ‘left at the end of the week’ is what you can expect to have left in the cupboard. You can carry that over to next week, or use it for snacks etc, as you wish.

Use the Cakes and Bakes at any point during the week when you need them, as an extra at lunch, a pudding after dinner, for supper, or any other hungry moment. Or if you and the 2nd person you are feeding don’t need this many calories, healthwise, these would probably be the best things to leave out (speaking as a sweet thing lover – sorry 🙁  Or how about a good old British compromise, make them and make them stretch over a longer period of time 😉

For this, and 2 other plans, I’m basing the weekly meal plan around one of the items that are available on a 3 for £10 offer and pricing that item accordingly


Sunday sausage, beans, toast tomato soup roast chicken, roasties, stuffing, mashed carrot & swede, peas
Monday porridge hummus, grated carrot sandwich chicken and onion pie, mixed veg
Tuesday peanut butter toast spicy lentil soup jacket potato, cheesy beans
Wednesday porridge falafel with carrot and salted peanut salad pea crumb fritters and chips
Thursday peanut butter toast hummus, grated carrot sandwich stuffed potato cakes, stuffed with baked beans. Serve with crispy bacon and a poached egg
Friday porridge sausage pasta salad coconut dhal, nan, carrot and cucumber salad with raisins
Saturday egg sandwich or on toast cheese and onion toastie chicken and mushroom lasagna (this shows the method, not the recipe)
  cakes and bakes – brownies, fruit muffins, raisin biscuits


a weekly meal plan for 4, all 3 meals and snacks. £37 at the checkout, and if you follow the plan fully, it will cost £32.72, £1.17 pppd. Lots of lovely food, for not much cash! Click To Tweet
