Budget shopping tips
Buying herbs and spices in bulk is something I really recommend. It can save a lot of money in the long term but also means you never run out! I find putting them on Amazon subscribe and save can help too!
Shopping around to see which shops have offers on your usual products can make a big difference to your weekly shopping bill. Additionally don’t forget to check out the yellow sticker reductions and freeze what you can.
This recipe can be easily made with leftovers you need to use up. If you have pepper and some salad like cucumber and spring onions that need using up it is a perfect way of making them into a delicious meal.

Why you need vegetables to lose weight
Everyone knows vegetables are good for you, don’t they? They are healthy and filling for very few calories!
The best vegetables are those with low-calorie density. Basically, we are talking about the healthier vegetables – potatoes don’t count but butternut squash is much healthier for example!
This means if you eat 100g of spinach, for example, it is just 23 calories and obviously, 100g of anything would fill you up significantly. On the other hand, 100g of crisps, which would be just as filling, is around 536 calories!
